    Tennis players' real heights?

    I saw that Murray claimed to be 187.5cm on Twitter a few years ago. I know that heights of tennis players are inflated, but since Murray's claim seems to be honest (and why wouldn't it be, he's billed at 191cm, almost 4cm higher than his actual claim), this would mean that Federer is probably...

    Young Rafa points

    This guy seems good. Will probably win several RGs. Maybe a slam or two on grass/HC, but nothing more than that. With that playstyle I'm sure he'll be retired by the time he's 25.

    Federer vs Nadal, match in Africa 2020 highlights

    Not like we don't know it already, but these guys are so insanely talented. Also, Rafa's smashes while jumping and spinning :oops: And a new attendance record for a tennis match - 51 954. Enjoy :cool:

    Djokovic's epic celebration

    Celebrating to a Bulgarian pop-folk song - Kameliya - Luda po tebe (the original version of song is Serbian) and saluting Bulgarian people. Epic! :)

    Nadal's toughest opponent in a RG final?

    I've not included Federer (08), Soderling (10), Ferrer (13), Wawrinka (17) and Thiem (18) as they were straight sets. Oddly enough, I think it might be Puerta.

    Djokovic to play Adelaide 2020

    Very weird decision, as he is also scheduled to play the ATP Cup. Adelaide ends on 1th 19th of January and the AO starts the next day.

    Favourite rant of all time

    1. Rafa vs Soderling at the 2010 Wimbledon. The 1st one in the video below (starts at 1:17). From Rafa's rant, to his face before serving (2:28), to saving that BP and eventially winning the match after being a set down. Pure gold. "But Pascal, what are you saying?" "No no no no no? He says...

    Rafa's outfits have been awesome this year

    Not only achievements-wise, but also a great year for Rafa as far as his outfits go. AO - underrated, imo. Great colours and the shoes are awesome IW - same thoughts as the AO one Clay season - a little more "ordinary" so to say, but still very nice Roland-Garros - loved it. Was...

    Matches where you've supported somebody else over your favourite?

    Only one for me On a side note, Roddick almost completed the Sunshine double in 2010. That would've been awesome :)

    Tsitsipas comments on playing Medvedev - “It’s just boring”

    A little salty, eh Stefanos? :) On Saturday, Stefanos Tsitsipas encountered his fifth straight defeat at the hands of Daniil Medvedev at Rolex Shanghai Masters 2019. After his back-to-back defeat against the Russian machine, Tsitsipas termed the matches against Medvedev as “boring” and was...

    A look back at the 2017 Mutua Madrid Open

    This was, in my opinion, one of Rafa's most impressive M1000 campaigns. He played great and had difficult opponents. Sure, Kyrgios played badly and Djokovic was far from his best, but it's still Djokovic we're talking about - he's always a tough opponent. I didn't watch the Fognini match, but...

    "If, if, if... it doesn't exist..."

    Rafa with another epic quote (after the "What happened... happened..."). Seems like he's gunning for quote of the year award :D Seriously, some of Nadal's pressers and answers are absolutely golden. Minute 3:15

    Do you find the underhand serve disrespectful?

    I see that some people consider it disrespectful and I'm not sure why. It's as a legit shot as any in tennis and if used properly can really surprise the opponent and keep him guessing. Kyrgios' underhand serves in this match (two I believe) for example were absolutely brilliant. I'm a Rafa...

    Feeling cute, might win 12 RGs later idk...
