    Is the Thiem forehand ATG ?

    TTW regressed so hard it's now reposting its most low-effort threads with even less effort. I'll contribute by adding a deep fried meme Thiem

    Slam Records are Garbage

    Imagine if Nadal / Djokovic end up breaking almost all of Fed's most significant records (for the record, I hope not). OP's new thread when that happens:

    In his THIRTIES, Rafa won more RG titles than RG sets he lost

    I always wished Goffin would do better. He has a fairly intelligent game and nice clean strokes. Just lacked a lot of firepower for his size—using a virtually bone stock specced racquet might be why.

    Nike 2020 General Thread

    I bought the 9" shorts in white a few weeks back. Unfortunately they're practically see-through so you have to be wary of what you're wearing especially if you sweat a lot (like me).

    What Are You Thinking About While Striking?

    I've noticed my footwork and split steps have become lazy so I'm focusing on those again, and trying to stay light on my feet. Recently found out I'm suffering from tendinitis in both knees so that's good motivation to make sure I'm on my toes. The other thing is to exaggerate the loading on...

    In his THIRTIES, Rafa won more RG titles than RG sets he lost

    I couldn't remember who took that third set (I remembered Schwartzman and Thiem), so I looked it up. So the sets lost: 2018 QF v Schwartzman: 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 2019 3R v Goffin: 6-1, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 2019 F v Thiem: 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1

    Gilles Simon on "The Federer Myth" and why he wants Djokodal to overtake him

    I tried to like Tsitsipas but his personality bothers me more than it should, and I don't find his game to be particularly unique or aesthetic enough to get past it. His rather awkward looking shots don't help either, but I can see why other people would enjoy watching him. That said I don't...

    Rafa's House: French Open Discussion

    I liked the shorts and shoes. Wasn't a huge fan of the shirt though. I did like his clay masters kit, which was similar but in dark blue and red headband. Think the colours worked better there (image at the bottom of this post) On second look, that shirt and dark navy shorts are a winning...

    Gilles Simon on "The Federer Myth" and why he wants Djokodal to overtake him

    Assuming they live up to their hype(s) the Sinner and Musetti are not bad choices, especially if the former decides to actually venture to the net every once in a while. For now it's a bit too early to tell though. And despite all the memery I actually do like Berrettini and if he could just...

    Rafa's House: French Open Discussion

    That sleeved white shirt is his 2018 Wimbledon top based on the single red swoosh. But I agree Capdal would be better since then the baldness would be out of sight out of mind. Plus it makes him look a bit younger. Bigger plus: mods can't ban the term "Capdal" because it's not a reference to...

    Rafa's House: French Open Discussion

    Yeah nah, nothing beats these: 2020 would've been right up there if not for the shorts and fit of the shirt. That shade of blue and red-pink normally is a winning combo, but missed opportunity overall. I did buy the shoes and shirt earlier in the year when it looked like RG was going to...

    Most epic win at each schlem? ;)

    Sometimes I like to pretend this was match point. Would've been one of his greatest slam title runs if he had won this one.

    Djokovic-Nadal Wimbledon 2018. ¿One of the best matches ever?

    Thanks to my salt this was just an okay match. Gonna have to agree with @Third Serve and vote for the Anderson v Isner match as the greater match. Even greater because of the incredible Wimbledon scheduling.

    More Potential? Nadal Or Gasquet?

    Gasquet will break through any day now, and when that happens we'll see who's shaking in their boots. Reeshar has kissed many girls Nadal, just the one (not including Pico). No variety, one trick donkey.

    Gilles Simon on "The Federer Myth" and why he wants Djokodal to overtake him

    I think what he means is Fed with his aesthetic and more classic style will always be a point of reference for coaches regardless of whether he stays as GOAT or not. But with Fed as GOAT, that style fluttery aesthetic style is what will be taught almost exclusively by coaches, whereas with...

    Biggest forehands in ATP: according to Nishikori

    I saw him in Shanghai in 2017 and tbh was a little disappointed. Yeah, his flat bombs are huge but his average rally forehand was a lot puffier than I thought it would be. Fedal on the other hand were quite something. With Fed the range of pace he hits was more obvious, whereas with Nadal you...

    The YEC

    This was a difficult vote. On one hand I could vote sincerely but add nothing to the discussion beyond the obvious, but on the other hand I could vote for the funnier "Boaty McBoatFace" choice and risk getting the thread derailed. Ultimately I decided in favour of the memes and voted "5th...

    2020 no1 - points and fairness

    Looks like Djokovic is #1 fair and square with or without the frozen points. Unless it's to serve ulterior motives, I really don't see why you'd want to asterisk anything seeing as how he kinda only lost once this year. Context can always come after but in most cases they won't discount the...
