    There are Greats but NO Greatest

    I think the forum has about a few hundred members. Could be wrong, though. I only joined earlier this year so there are many posters with more knowledge than myself. I think the majority would say that Nadal has had the better year than Djokovic. He looked more convincing overall this year...

    Laver Cup = Waste of Time

    It's fun to watch. That's why (most) people watch sports in the first place.

    There are Greats but NO Greatest

    You have a good point and you probably aren't one of these posters I'm talking about (if you were, you probably would have avoided the question entirely), but it's not only the Fed fans who consistently spout BS. Right now, it's really only tennis_pro who keeps doing it. On the other hand, I've...

    Dubious record for most Grand Slam semifinals after last/first Grand Slam win - Connors and Davenport

    I'm just imagining this guy going into a local pub, ordering a drink, taking a few sips, and thinking to himself: "Hmm, I wonder who made the most Slam SFs after their last Slam win!"

    Why Nadal can’t win the AO

    Man, people are still falling for this. Ok, bit of a hypocrite here. I fell for it (momentarily).

    Say what you will about the French Tsitsipas.

    It has the best name, I'll give it that. Coupe des Mousquetaires --- The Musketeers' Trophy My fav is the Wimby trophy though.

    Why Nadal can’t win the AO

    You could say he's underachieved at the AO while he's overachieved at the US Open.

    There are Greats but NO Greatest

    For the record, I've called some Fed fans out on their BS before. Just saying that I've seen many new users jumping in on the Fed hate brigade so I've got the feeling that some of these are duplicate accounts (or second or third accounts).

    What do Berrettini, Gasquet and Youzhny have in common?

    Yeah, it's his playing style. It follows that someone like Verdasco or Davydenko would be a tougher matchup for him than they would for Fed. And Fed has his own problem with handling heavy topspin players. That's why Andreev took him to five sets at the US Open in 2008 while I know Nadal would...

    What do Berrettini, Gasquet and Youzhny have in common?

    I doubt that very much. I think he'd match up better against Fiasco but he's still dropping a set, at least. Dude hit over 100 winners in that match.

    What do Berrettini, Gasquet and Youzhny have in common?

    OK, you have a point about the other names you listed but Verdasco that day put up one of the toughest fights ever for a Slam semifinal. Tougher perhaps than even Federer himself in the final.

    Big3 want to be the BOAT, not the GOAT

    He was also really good in 2005! Forehand was on fire in that final.
