    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    Verdasco withdrew from Stockholm and is replaced by Stebe, that’s a big opportunity for Denis now !

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    I hope he can win this one. Verdasco will be a tough QF though as Denis struggles with lefties

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    Offensive players take more time to mature because offense is more complicated than defense. Tsitsipas was also in his 20 last year when he won his first title (at Stockholm by the way). I think Shapovalov is improving currently, let’s see where these improvements will take him

    Who will replace each of the Big3?

    No one will replace no one and there will not be a new Big 3 or Big 4. Big 4 was Federer+Nadal+Djokovic+Murray, even if 4 players become as consistant as them, they will be something else with another name. IMO tennis will have multiple GS winners in the future like it is in WTA at the moment...

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    I feel like Denis was just trying to be consistent against Novak today, it’s a long term improvement.

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    I watched the match and thought that Denis played well. His slice has improved a lot, and he is way more patient. It’s disappointing that it didn’t pay off today but really, he is on the right track and I hope this defeat won’t affect his confidence. Had he put the forehand attack at 5/4 0-30...

    Roger Federer admits he cried after losing to Novak Djokovic in the 2019 Wimbledon final

    I’m still mad about it and I’m not even the biggest Federer fan in the World. So I can’t imagine what it is for hardcore Fedfans and for Roger himself.

    Medvedev will be a threat at Wim2020

    I know he didn’t went further than R3 for the moment at Wimbledon but believe me, this player is gonna be a tough opponent on grass in the years to come. Excellent serve, flat and low bouncy shots, amazing return, good movement. Actually he himself says that grass is his favorite surface and it...

    Rate the 2019 Slams

    I think Wimbledon was the best, because of the best final (5 setters between 2 of the big3, number 1 and 2 seeds, almost 100 winners from Federer, end at the 5th set tie break, drama etc...) and also other quality matches (Nadal/Kyrgios, Djokovic/Hurkacz, Goffin/Medvedev, Nadal/Federer). Then I...
