    Djokovic... how many slams will he win?

    My prediction before he made his 4 slam dominance was around 14 to 16. Early this year i revised that to 16 to 18. Now my prediction is 15 to 17. Realistically he needs to win the US open to give himself a decent chance to pass 17. When Fedal had their last 3 slam seasons, both went on to win 5...

    Will Murray dominate tennis and become no.1??

Could you imagine in one years time he might be on 6 slams and is the world no.1? Have we seen peak Murray, yet?? Lendl-Murray was...

    Murray proved this era strong

    by winning his third slam he is now clearly ahead of Hewitt or roddick in terms of greatness. So when comparing Federer and Novaks competition on hard or grass courts, Federer has had the weaker chief rival during 2003 to 2006. Murray just trolled all the guys saying this era is weak. Lol.

    Feels like another Djokovic year

    After 2015, and a perfect Doha from Novak, I cannot help but feel that 2016 is another Djokovic year. That performance was out of this world. Nadal's playing marginally better than last year but his loss was worse than last year. It feels like novak has improved even more over the break...
