    What if Sampras played at Wimbledon 2021?

    He would need a favorable draw like Connors US Open 91 to have any chance getting to the 4th round.

    What if Sampras played at Wimbledon 2021?

    Pete has some old chronic injuries and a blood issue. Different genetics then Federer At 49 it would a tough ask. But if he pulled out all his guile experience and skill who knows!

    Highest level of one-time US Open champion?

    I loved Cilic in that US Open. He was blasting heavy deep shots off both wings Big lots of length. Safin 2000 anything with PETE in it has got to be good!

    Peak for peak: Raonic vs Roddick, Nishikori vs Hewitt

    I always liked Nishikori's game especially for a 5'10 player. He was born brittle unfortunately. And competed in the most physical era in tennis history. Blew his tires and engine out. Raonic's serve is awesome.

    Stefanos Tsitsipas

    Not sure about this but it seems his game might be the best on the red clay of Paris? His game confuses me a bit.

    Toni Nadal hired as the coach of Felix Auger Aliassime

    Well maybe he can at least help get him into the semi's of majors. That woulld seem to be a moderate goal.

    Uncle Toni does not just coach anyone. He must see something in the young lad.

    My apologies @clayqueen and @octobrina10. Fingers crossed they do not cancel the French and or Wimbledon. Rafa needs to get this 21 done!

    Federer made a mistake...what am I missing?

    Fed needed to do what he needed to do to stay relevant win and compete as the sport became more physical with longer rallies. He has talked about this. As he stated "Novak is the ultimate challenge". It was not just for Nadal.

    Federer made a mistake...what am I missing?

    Roddick mentioned that. 2019 Wimbledon Fed lost a step. Passing shots harder for him to execute. For some reason i am fascinated listening to these pros analyze. Cannot wait to read Pete's book.
