    Ten greatest Wimbledon men's finals?

    Watch the match again. 2007 Nadal higher than 2008 Nadal on grass? Please stop talking now, this is nonsense. Do you want me to break down Nadal's shot making, movement etc in 2008? I have never heard this said ever before.

    Ten greatest Wimbledon men's finals?

    Nadal 2007 was stronger than Nadal 2008 at Wimbledon? Pretty silly statement, clearly Nadal was stronger in 2008 (did you actually Wimbledon in those years?)- first time I've ever heard this.

    Explain how this point likely plays out...

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, I feel very fortunate to have watched these two play. Especially now, as Wimbledon would have happening now, we can remember the level of play of past matches like Wimbledon 2007, Wimbledon 2008 etc. Explain how you think this point likely plays out.

    Are you looking forward to the endless exhibitions between Federer, Nadal and Djokovic after they retire?

    Yes I've watched Federer and Nadal many times but never together. I will be ready for this and their sponsorship deals should mean they maintain a decent physical condition.

    Are you looking forward to the endless exhibitions between Federer, Nadal and Djokovic after they retire?

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, I really feel that I have been lucky to watch these two. Compare the level of play during say Wimbledon 2007, Wimbledon 2008, Australian Open 2009 to what we see today. Tennis is played at a high level, but nothing compared to what these two produced back in those...

    Dorochenko: "Federer can win Wimbledon at 42 or 43 years old"

    He definitely can with a favourable draw, avoiding Djokovic/Nadal. No new player is showing any domination, especially on grass. His forehand or serve won't decline in the next 5 or so years. I can't imagine any player having a more potent forehand in the next few years, Federer will still be...

    Who has defeated more pigeons to win their grand slams? Federer or Nadal?

    How, look at the field that Federer had in 2003-2004 time? Even the players like Thiem and Wawrinka players, who were just outside of the top 3, are very very dangerous. Federer didn't have such opponents when he was cleaning up on slams.

    Who has the better BH? Sampras or Nadal?

    Imagine what Nadal would have done to the Sampras backhand.

    Who has defeated more pigeons to win their grand slams? Federer or Nadal?

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, I feel it has been a privilege to watch these two play. They have produced the greatest match of all time at Wimbledon 2008, and it shows Nadal's strengths the fact that he was able to push Prime Federer to 5 sets the year before at Wimbledon 2007. There are many...

    Would Rafa have been as successful without poly strings?

    Let me change my stance and fix it for you. As a Federer and Nadal fan, I have to say I have enjoyed watching these two play. In answer to the question, we have seen Nadal take prime Federer in 2007 to 5 sets at Wimbledon, and then beat Federer at Wimbledon 2008 - on a low bouncing, less spin...

    Would Rafa have been as successful without poly strings?

    Its a misconception that his game is *just* based on high RPM. There are other players who hit with more topspin than Nadal, Sock being an example, but compare Sock's forehand to Nadal's, more spin yes, but nowhere near as potent. His forehand followthough, helicopter as you say, is an...

    Prime Federer vs Prime Djokovic on Hardcourt

    Just prime, say 2005-2007, but personally, I like 2007 because he had to change his game to handle bigger hitters on tour. I think prime Federer had the perfect hard court game.

    Prime Federer vs Prime Djokovic on Hardcourt

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, I have to say I have enjoyed, or have been privileged, to have seen these guys play. For me, I don't think Djokovic has created an event like what these two have done, such as Wimbledon 2008. I feel sad that people watching Federer today will remember his as this...

    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.
