    Prime Nadal vs Prime Sampras at the French Open - Only Sampras Serves - Who Wins?

    He was getting broken easily, that is the point. Kafelnikov beat Sampras 76 60 62 - this was the year Sampras got furthest in the tournament than any other year, his greatest year at the French. Please answer this for me, imagine, instead of Kafelnikov, it was the 2008 Nadal from the video below...

    Is Medvedev a student of the Novak Djokovic school of thought?

    Have you not seen Djokovic, especially recently? He wins slams by keeping the ball in play. And you are arguing Djokovic forehand is more effective than both Federer and Nadal? Please tell me you are not serious.

    Is Medvedev a student of the Novak Djokovic school of thought?

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, Djokovic for some reason not so much especially when you consider the type of matches Federer and Nadal produced in their primes, like WImbledon 2008. Although I think Djokovic has the best chance of the three to end up with the most slams. It's nice to see with...

    Thiem has the potential to dominate

    As a Federer and Nadal fan I feel very lucky to have watched these two who I rate as the two greatest of all time. It all culminated in the final of Wimbledon 2008 which was a match beyond anything, I mean compare the speed, shot making, intensity, timing etc of Wimbledon 2008 and Wimbledon 2019...

    2019 Wimbledon: the most thrilling men's major final?

    How could this be his greatest performance? Did you not watch tennis around 2005-2008 time? Look at the video above, how can you possibly say the shot making and technique matched up to that? Are you serious?

    2019 Wimbledon: the most thrilling men's major final?

    Not even close. Look at the pace, intensity and shot making of this match. Felt like Djokovic Federer 2019 was in slow motion in comparison.

    Djokovic will finish with the most men's Grand Slam singles

    He's definitely not the greatest right now. Imagine Federer at his best vs Djokovic at his best on grass? No contest in my book.

    Djokovic will finish with the most men's Grand Slam singles

    As a Federer and Nadal fan I feel very lucky that I watched these two players at their best. Federer in his prime had the super footwork, greatest forehand etc, Nadal in his prime was a force that would break you down and could get to any ball in the court. For me these two will be the greatest...

    Guys, the ball was in...

    Yeah I've always had a problem with that, as soon as players talk to the umpire the crowd start jeering. It's such a stupid thing because he's there to officiate and there could be all kinds of reasons why someone is talking to the umpire. In fact, he should welcome players to talk to him and...

    Don't understand how the line judge and umpire didn't see the chalk flying up?

    Guys, the ball was in...

    Surely you don't need haweye on clay as the mark is visible and wasn't hawkeye shown to be almost accurate but not absolutely? If the actual mark is there then surely that is a better indicator?

    I want your excuses why Nadal won Wimbledon 2008

    Can you imagine 2008 Nadal against a 2003/2004 Federer? Nadal would have made mince meat out of him. Even in 2006 Nadal was 20 years ago, a baby in today's tennis terms and there were two close sets - you're not going to argue that 2008 2007 and 2006 Federer was crap now are you? Why do you...

    I want your excuses why Nadal won Wimbledon 2008

    No that's part of the analysis. You look at the footwork, age, the forehand, timing etc and he was on an amazing level. He was hitting winners from anywhere on grass, and of course he would do, greatest grass court player of all time in his prime age - what more do you expect. The people saying...

    Guys, the ball was in...

    As a Federer and Nadal fan I was kind of late to the party watching tennis and only started watching in the Federer and Nadal era. It still amazes me that Nadal managed to take Federer to five sets in both Wimbledon 2007 and Wimbledon 2008 - the two greatest players in my eyes. This serve from...

    I want your excuses why Nadal won Wimbledon 2008

    This is why I asked about 2008 Nadal and not 2014. The 2006-2010 Nadal on grass was vastly different to say to his game today. Federer at his prime is considered the greatest grass court player of all time, and Nadal went toe to toe with Prime Federer and even beat him on one occasion. I think...
