    Kevin Anderson in fine form - AO Champ 2019?

    I dont really think he is as weak mentally as you are saying, in fact I believe he is improving mentally. Dont forget that he was losing 2:0 from Fed and Fed had a match point to finish him, yet he came back and won .. if he was mentally as bad as you are saying he was, I guess he wouldnt have...

    If the Big 3 dont stop him, I dont see anyone else stopping him, you have a point.

    Remember when I said Fred was injured...

    @MasturB I truly admire your knowledge, observational skills, attention on details and all the effort you've put in this thread where you shared your expertise, in which unfortunately many people just went against you without really much of rational thinking in their arguments with you. I wish...

    Forbes: Want to live longer ? Play tennis

    I get your point and I also dont have much trust in this type of studies, but look at the numbers, they state that tennis players live 9.7 years longer while soccer players for example live 4.7 years longer, now that is more than 2x difference and Im wondering where they got this number from. In...

    Forbes: Want to live longer ? Play tennis

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg/2018/09/17/want-to-live-longer-take-up-tennis/#7e615474301b This is an interesting article to read, though not sure how reliable it is, because it's just an observational study as stated in the article. Anyway, let's discuss this.

    Remember when I said Fred was injured...

    If you were watching the match of the Montreal finals, you would know it wasnt just " tweaking back ". As well as if you watched some of his last year USO matches, including the 5 setter against Tiafoe, it was so obvious that his back was not healed. Though, that doesnt mean anything to take...

    Fed should have retired or withdrew

    He never ever retired from a match,so why do it now in the last stage of his career ? It's a good record.

    Remember when I said Fred was injured...

    I dont get you, what source are you asking me to provide for ? Source for the injury ? Source for the short talk after the handshake between Fed & Zverev ? I thought everyone knows/ remembers that he had a back injury last year after playing Montreal, and he still had it during the US Open (...

    Will Federer ever lose with grace?

    Did he lie saying that the weather and court conditions made it harder for him ? No Did he credit his opponent's win ? Yes Another thing not to forget, last year in the final of Montreal when he lost to A.Zverev, after the handshake he was asked by Zverev if there is something wrong with his...

    Remember when I said Fred was injured...

    One thing is sure, everything said regarding Fed at this moment can and should be considered as speculation, regardless of the statements such as he is injured/ just old/ just heat related or everything combined. Read OP's posts, there are strong arguments that there COULD be an injury going...

    Remember when I said Fred was injured...

    I am not taking any sides, but I would just like to add something for the people here who apparently take every Fed's word as granted. Remember last year in the final of Montreal when he lost to Zverev, after the handshake he was asked by Zverev something like " What's wrong, is there something...

    Fantasy Tennis League

    That's great. I lost 4 so far and have 4 more players ( Djokovic, Cilic, , Isner and Nishikori ), not doing so great but what can you do, who really expected Anderson to be knocked out by Thiem and Zverev to lose in the 3rd round..

    Video of Federer’s shot of the year + Kyrgios reaction

    Not point of the year, but SHOT of the year/ tournament so far would make more sense. Talking about Federer's point.
