    Fedalovic have won 15 FOs between them

    The greatest trio of RG players in the Open Era is Nadal + any two other people in the entire world.

    €10 difference between male and female Rome champion's prize money

    It's not an example of sexism. The second round men's participant makes almost exactly half as much as the quarterfinalist. However, it is off by a sum of 10 once again. Why 37,490 instead of 37,500? Then it would be exactly half of 75,000. Are they aiming to shame second round participants as...

    Sudden populated seats in Rome with audiences without masks

    Some incredible points and Federer's first choking moments against Djokovic. And why Djokovic abandoned aggression ?

    He was more extravagantly aggressive against Federer then because he thought he had to be. Shots like 2:29 would almost never be attempted today except on throwaway points. These days, he would usually spin that ball back, safe and deep, confident that he can beat Federer while taking very few...

    Palermo player tests positive for That Thing

    How do you think vaccination works? It is to literally spread the virus itself, in "small" or "weakened" amounts, according to the supplier's definition of what constitutes small, weakened, or manageable amounts of the infection, such that an individual's immune system can defeat the infection...

    Palermo player tests positive for That Thing

    Everyone is positive for that thing. Just take the test enough times, and you'll get it.

    Do women really generate equal revenue compared to men in terms of broadcasting and ticket sales?

    It's admirable to lie about men and women being equal in absolutely every way if it's a good PR message that makes tournaments look hip and trendy.

    Timea Bacsinszky : World No.1 doesn't really show a good example

    Djokovic sets a great example. We would be better off if everyone acted as he has.

    Was Federer's 2019 Wimbledon loss a traumatic event in your life?

    It was the most disillusioning moment in professional tennis for me. Federer choked once again, in the same way, except even worse this time, to the same guy. Federer is not the GOAT. Djokovic's bizarre lack of celebration when winning also put a strange aura on the match. It was as though he...

    Benoit Paire says no to US Open

    What dangers? Is he dying, or more so having to apologize and explain himself to the mob, who care more about his test result than his condition and symptoms (if any...)? This is akin to a witch hunt.

    Now official: Djokovic joins Dimitrov and Coric.

    Why would this change his opinion on vaccination? He's going to easily gain immunity on his own. In fact, he's already immune, and there's evidently nothing to recover from.

    Andy Murray on Novak Adria tour debacle : ‘Not a good look for the sport’

    Djokovic is taking it as seriously as Serbia is taking it, apparently. And they're doing fine.

    Dominic Thiem tested negative for coronavirus after returning to Austria

    Test him again until he tests positive! Don't you know there are "false negatives"? It's a outrage.

    Novak Djokovic must 'feel responsibility' at coronavirus at Adria Tour, says Evans

    True, but in the old pre-PC days, people weren't so weak and controllable as to succumb to mass lockdown orders on the anticipation of a bad flu season in the first place.

    25: The magic number for Federer and Djokovic

    It's a true fact. Somebody is winning at least 25 slams, so Federer and Djokovic have that number to chase after.

    BIG 3 at 33 years of age

    USO and RG 2020 - Rafa and Nole

    I would be happy with literally anyone winning USO 2020 and RG 2020, even Leonardo Mayer. Some live action would be exciting.

    The case for the BIG 4

    Wawrinka: 4-4 vs Djokovic in slams Murray: 2-8 vs Djokovic. 3 = 3 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 17 < 19 < 20. I'd say Wawrinka and Murray are pretty close compared to their distance to the big 3.

    Smashing racquet = immediate point penalty

    It's great for the racquet manufacturer. Everyone knows they're not blaming the racquet manufacturer. They're blaming themselves and punishing themselves by having to use a new racquet.

    Nadal writes off 2020 season. Looks forward to 2021.

    Bwahahaha oh yeah, it's absolutely deadly here in the US right now. You walk outside, you drop dead. All because of Trump not banning travel fast enough. Meanwhile, China has handled the virus beautifully, reporting only ONE coronavirus death in the past TWO WEEKS combined. How great are they...

    Is Cincy a slam?

    Anything is a slam now. Any live tennis event attended by at least 1,000 spectators would seem like a slam at this point. But having said that, there's a chance that no slam will ever be held ever again.

    Let's assume the UO and RG are not cancelled

    Winning 4 USO titles is pretty tremendous for a desperate clay-courter. He's just maximizing his chances of becoming the GOAT, which means he may skip USO. He's won USO 25% of the time, as opposed to his 80% RG win rate, so it'd be pretty understandable.

    Should the rankings be "frozen"?

    Well, who else gives off a better indication that they "will be YE#1"? Djokovic has as good as an argument as anyone by far. If there "will be" a YE#1, then as of right now it's Djokovic.

    USA bans all travel from Europe for the 30 days. Players hoping to play in Miami would need to arrive by Midnight friday
