    For Federer and Nadal fans

    A joke, by Ben Rothenberg To be fair, I'm just watching the match now on catch up, and it seems every single one of those break points was in Delbonis' first service game of the match, right? :laughing:

    2 things to ponder about this US Open

    1. Serena Williams is here, as a seed and one of the top contenders, TWENTY YEARS after winning her first title here. You have to go back to Rosewall to find something like that in the game (discounting the wildcard Martina took at Wimbledon in 2004). 2. If Djokovic wins the title he will break...

    What do you think Andy Murray should do?

    Struggle on till Wimbledon, have his last hurrah, maybe get surgery after, or get it now and maybe never play again?

    Anderson-Federer/Nadal-Del Potro

    Pair of great 5 setters at this stage in a major is rare, especially on the same day. Thoughts on them? Compare and contrast? Preference?

    So, Berdych is out of Wimbledon Sad for him, he's had a lot of successes there over the years, and he's one of the more dependable ones on the surface. Does this make Federer the favourite now?

    Which performance was more impressive?

    Fernando Verdasco blasting 95 winners past Nadal at the Australian Open in 2009 but still going down in 5. or Gilles Simon extracting 100 unforced errors from Djokovic at the Australian Open in 2016 but still going down in 5? (I know this is a stupid question with an obvious answer, but it's...

    Pancho Segura (1921-2017) One of the great underrated players in the games long history, notable for everything from his diminutive stature to the two handed forehand, to having won the US Pro on 3 different surfaces (something his great protege did at the USO!)...

    Federer vs. Argentina

    Assuming Kohli isn't about to pull off a miracle comeback... How do we feel Papa Rog will handle the entire nation of Argentina having come to New York? I guess it won't quite be the same on Ashe as it has been for Delpo and Diego on Grandstand, but you have to think they'll make their mark.

    Rod Laver

    This guy is almost 80 years old, is anybody else amazed by how year after year he seems to show up to all of the slams? I can barely stand a 7 hour transatlantic flight, I can't imagine the amount of hours travelling this guy must rack up year after year. I guess he's special in more ways than...

    Rome 2006, Wimbledon 2008, Australia 2017

    Roger and Rafa have obviously played a lot of great matches, and you could say other matches they played featured better tennis, but in all other cases they were either piddly little best of 3 sets, never went to a 5th, or had blowout 5ths. However on these three occasions, poetically one on...

    What was Stan doing on match point?
