    Wawrinka's Backhand. Ridiculous!

    I stumbled upon this video of Wawa's 70 backhand winners. http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=channel%3A52f5b31c-0-2e7e-9955-20cf301cc1b6&feature=iv&src_vid=EvO4rSaSTEU&v=qO6t8nkZ97Q Pummeling Hewitt, Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Almagro and others. Truly a sight to behold

    Agassi moonballing?? That's a first.

    Agassi moonballing against Edberg to keep him pinned behind the baseline. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYaFLDkQC7E Never thought I would live long enough to see a match of Agassi moonballing. If anything, it was a rather good tactic. In the end, Edberg won in 4.

    My own, humble version of Bohemian Rhapsody :)

    Hey guys. I don't know why I didn't post this here earlier. I'm guessing since it's a tennis forums, maybe people wouldn't care. I recorded my own version of Bohemian Rhapsody months ago. The middle, operatic part, that is. It was such a fun ride, with all the overdubs. It ends up being lead...

    Santiago Giraldo: Return of serve

    Stumbled upon this video, and man I gotta admit I'm impressed. I know it's a highlights video, but since most of those are from the same match, he must be doing it 5x, 6x, 7 times a match. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBvesji9yOs&feature=related Impressive ROS ;)

    The Borg curse (RG approaching)

    With Roland Garros approaching, one cannot stop wondering and thinking about how difficult it is to break Borg's record. Maybe there IS a Borg curse, after all. He had the 5 consecutive Wimbys record: Fed tied those five, and when shooting for the 6th, BAM, Nadal wins. He had the 4...

    Last time a slam final was played by two players outside the Top10?

    As title say: When was the last time a slam final was played by two players outside the Top10? How high was Krajicek ranked when he won Wimby in 96?

    Murray hits 124 mph forehand. Biggest ever?

    Roland Garros - the real Slam

    Today's semifinals feature the top 4 players. Unlike the last "Slams". I contend that whoever wins here is the real #1 and the GOAT. I have a feeling it won't be the guy with the elegant strokes. My humble tribute :)

    Gasquet serving 145.4 mph?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-LqJNv1oCc&feature=related Serving at 1:46, he served a HUGE serve down the line. The gun clocked it at 234 kmh. It does look impressively fast, though. I had him serving at 138 mph (MS Canada 2007), so 140+ wasn't out of the question. Well, look at...
