    Who is more talented: Thiem or Nalbandian?

    talent is when you aren't that good at a lot of the really important stuff in tennis, but very good at some of the less important, eye-catching stuff. cf. Nick Kyrgios, Marcelo Ríos, Grigor Dimitrov, Roger Federer, David Nalbandian

    I stake my rubles on Rublev: the official Andrey match watch

    Was a bit disappointed to see that he's another one of the anti-vax tennis players. But oh well, just a tennis player. Ultimately seems a nice kid at the end of the day.

    When Metallic Murray pulls the bung out (Plays well) he actually is really interesting to watch.

    The Ruud Awakening!

    Casper has looked in-control in his two previous matches against Diego Schwartzman this season -- can he make it a hat-trick? Someone once managed to shamelessly steal a Wimbledon final with a 0.87 DR -- guess who/when!:whistle:

    Why did it take until late 2014 for Federer to overtake Murray in their H2H?
