    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Djokovic is still the favourite to win every slam outside of the French (and he will still have chances there). Despite this loss, I think he's still likely to get the all time slam record.

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    Didn't realize until the post match recap that Fed had set points to go up 2-0 on Millman. It's like the Anderson match all over again. Weird how he's going mentally a wall lately.

    Madison Keys....duh why don’t I just keep using the same and successful strategy which is .....

    WTA in general has taken a big step back from what it used to be. Early 2000's had so many top players with interesting game styles: Henin, Mauresmo, Clijsters, Hingis, Williams sisters, etc. Now it's just ball bashers vs retreivers with no sense of how to construct points.

    Thiem playing Lyon??

    Not sure why he's playing. Both tournaments this week are either 1) guys ranked lower or 2) higher ranked guys that don't play well on clay and/or need to get matches. Thiem is neither and he's a top 3 contender for RG. Playing three weeks in a row before a major and 5 out of 6 weeks is not a...

    2018 Indian Wells F: [1] Roger Federer vs. [6] Juan Martin Del Potro

    Del Potro's backhand is now close to 2009 level and with the added variety in the slice, it's become a great shot again. Hopefully another GS is coming.

    2018 Indian Wells Masters - More than a mere M1000

    Donskoy is a great ball striker. No idea why he hasn't done much....

    2018 Acapulco - ATP 500

    Zverev reminds me of Murray at the beginning of his career. Has all the shots and talent but doesn't know how to use it. And he ends up getting waxed sometimes because of it.

    WTF 2017 QF - Sock vs Zverev

    Are people seriously comparing Sock and Nalbandian haha..... I'd rather have a beer with Sock than Zverev but still wanted Zverev to win for the sake of the tournament. His best level is much higher than Sock's, unfortunately Z still has some maturing to do mentally.

    2011 Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player of all time.

    Would have to agree with this. 2011 Djokovic just edges 2015 Djokovic and 2006 Federer.

    Is the WTF actually an exhibition this year?

    Yeah, in 2014 Murray flew all around Asia playing 250's and took wild cards into Euro tournaments in a desperate attempt to qualify for an exhibition.
