    Did Wawrinka Underachieve Throughout His Career?

    His average level still sees him regularly beating top 20 players quite easily now adays. Granted he could also lose to some random qualifier at the same time.

    If you could build a Stanimal beating machine, how would you build it and why?

    Nadal and Federer are much better at playing defense and creating offensive shots from defensive positions. Stan not so much. If he gets put into a position where he has to redirect pace (which is not easy since Stan tends to win tons of points off his serve, making him incredibly difficult to...

    How far will Nadal go at Wimbledon?

    If he draws someone like an Isner early on he's pretty toast.

    I can't believe Wawrinka has as many slams as Murray/Safin/Hewitt now

    The second he loses a step which is probably going to happen in a year or two, Stan will have to play too offensive and make too many errors. I don't see him winning another major or two unless the draw opens up big time. I will say that Stan is probably the most underrated all-court player...

    If you could build a Stanimal beating machine, how would you build it and why?

    Federer at his best or someone like Sampras. Wawrinka struggles against players who take the initiative and make him move and hit on the run. If you can force him to play defense he's not so great at it. Issue is that top players are too passive now adays, so it gives Stan way too much time to...

    2015 Roland Garros Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [8] Stanislas Wawrinka

    Ah..... the smell of idiots being made idiots today. Can't believe someone said Wawrinka has the worst serve in the top 10. I nearly died laughing. Djokovic the best returner in the world only managed to break him a handful of times today on clay, a surface that is suppose to negate the serve.

    2015 Roland Garros Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [8] Stanislas Wawrinka

    Lmao, you obviously have never watched Wawrinka. The worst service in the top 10? You realize he can nail lines at 125+, and smoke people at 130+ at times. His second serve is also nothing to scoff at either. He has a much stronger serve than Nadal, Murray, Ferrer, and Nishikori. And clay was...

    Depressed Murray fans check in here

    Protypical Murray against Djokovic. He for whatever reason has no belief that he can beat Djokovic in a 5th set, and just mentally implodes for whatever reason and throws all strategy out the window.

    RG 2015 SF: [8] Stan Wawrinka vs. [14] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

    He was always extremely talented, probably one of the best ballstrikers on the tour for awhile. Even when he was a top 30 ranked player he was routinely beating great ballstrikers like Nalbandian.

    Tennis is heading into a dark and unforeseen future

    Faster surfaces require you to have faster reflexes/faster foot speed. You don't necessarily actually have to be fast to succeed on today's surfaces, especially if you have a big ground game like a Wawrinka and can control the center of the court. Berdych even at his older age is still...

    Billie Jean King: Nadal 'could need a year' to rebuild confidence

    Nadal can't just blindly charge into the net, his issue is that his forehand gives his opponent too much time to pass him. He also can't hit the ball on the rise nearly as well as Djokovic or Federer, as such he can't rob people of time. His style of play used to work when he could outmuscle and...

    RG 2015 SF: [8] Stan Wawrinka vs. [14] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

    Stan could either straight set Tsonga or lose in straights. He's abit like Safin in that he's literally almost unplayable when he is on, but he can also just mentally lose it. The thing Tsonga has going against him is that he won't be able to 1-2 end points quickly. Although he's shown some...

    Nadal himself confirms he asked for Bernardes removal from his matches

    Del Potro, Isner, and Berdych are naturally slow players. Most players don't actually complain about slow play as long as the player is consistent about it. The problem with Nadal is there is no consistency in his play. He sometimes plays within the timelimit and actually plays ultra fast...

    34 years old Federer has double the point of 29 year old Nadal!

    Yeah that's why Agassi who was still playing excellent tennis (like ridiculously good tennis) lost to an unseeded Marat Safin at the AO. Okies. Grass today vs grass in the 90s cannot be compared. The surfaces are completely different. Becker wouldn't survive on today's grass just as Nadal...

    34 years old Federer has double the point of 29 year old Nadal!

    That explains why Federer has a few wins over Nadal on outdoor HC surfaces. Ok. I mean, pretty sure Federer actually beat Nadal quite easily on a slow HC in windy conditions in 2012, but what do I know.
