    Balanced slam distribution is better? Think again

    Let's suppose a player emerges in the near future that manages to win 20 GS at an exact distribution of 5-5-5-5. What happens there? That player wouldn't be the GOAT of anything and that would be deemed the biggest hole in their resume. There is no objectivity to slam distribution and it is a...

    An interesting fact about RG 2015 QF between Rafa and Novak

    From the day Nadal won his first FO, there has only ever been one match at the FO where Nadal was NOT the favourite to win and that is the 2015 QF. Really goes to show just how bad Nadal was that he wasn't even the betting favourite. In fact Novak was the clear favourite. Historically on paper...

    So if Djokovic wins Wimbledon...

    Would it be the single greatest achievement in the history of the sport to win 5 grand slam in a row? I mean 4 in a row is a big enough deal as it is 5 would really give Novak one of those super goat stats which would strengthen his fight to become the goat. The boat has clearly sailed for...

    An interesting stat regarding Djokovic and Federer H2H.

    Up until the Dubai open 2011 Federer was the favourite to win in all but 1 of their matches. The 2008 Monte Carlo semi final was a bookies tie. So basically Federer was the favourite to win in 20 of their first career meetings and a tie in 1. However starting from Indian Wells 2011 Novak has...

    The greatest achievement of Rafael Nadal.

    Think about all the biggest and most anticipated matches in the last 10 years of Tennis and then think about the ones Nadal has been involved in. He has won every single one of them. I am not talking about the quality of matches and neither matches where merely big history is at stake. But...

    Should Wimbledon be rated higher than other slams?

    If you give a player an option to win any grand slam then anyone who isn't an Australian, French or American will choose Wimbledon. Even then you might have some players from the aforementioned nationalities that might still prefer Wimbledon over their home slam. No British or neutral player...

    Is Andy Murray the greatest ever to never be no.1?

    It seems more and more likely to me that Andy Murray will never have the no.1 ranking. So as it stands will he go down as the greatest player ever to never had the no.1 ranking??

    As a realistic Nadal fan....

    There was a time I really thought he could win 17 grand slams. While the ship hasn't completely sailed but its increasingly becoming a very unrealistic target. So now as a huge Nadal fan I would be happy and satisfied with his career if he wins one more Grand Slam because then he would be the...

    Is nadal the only big player to never lose a GS final in straight sets?

    If we only talk about people who have played 10 or more slam finals, is Nadal the only one to have never lost in straight sets? I know Federer, Nole, Sampras and Aggasi have all lost finals in straight sets but I don't know about guys of previous eras. I think its an incredible achievement...

    Is Andre Agassi the real GOAT?

    He achieved so much in his career despite having such a big handicap with his height, do you think anyone else could have achieved that much if they were given his height? Like if sampras, federer or nadal were shorter? I think sampras, federer and nadal have the "perfect" tennis height and...

    One thing I just dont get!!

    When nole won 8 games in a row nadal had won the previous 6 games in a row so how the hell do people think that nole would have kept on like that for 2 more sets? People are acting like it was the first set and nothing had happened before. When the rain stopped play nadal had just won his first...

    The most disappointing day for nadal fans!

    Cant believe what I just read. :( "I am not confident. I am not playing well enough to win this tournament the way I played today. That's the truth. You have to be realistic. "We will see after tomorrow if I am ready to play at this level. I am going to try. But I won five times already...

    Every tennis fan should be happy that federer defeated nadal!

    I am a huge nadal fan and I am happy about it, why you ask? Well simply for keeping alive the legendary rivalry of fed and nadal! Nadal beating federer was quickly becoming so insignificant an occasion that if he had won the WTF then their rivalry would have effectively died.

    Will federer spare pete of his remaining 2 records?

    First of all by "spare" I dont imply that federer can do whatever the hell he wants to. But anyways there are 2 important records that pete sampras still holds and federer is the only likely player to beat them in the near future. First is the most no. of weeks at no. 1 and the other is 7...

    Andy murray says nadal might be the second greatest ever if not the greatest...

    "Right now it is very difficult, you've got the best grass-court player ever currently in [Roger] Federer and probably the best player of all time. "And Rafa [Nadal] might go on to be the second best player of all time, if not surpass what Roger has done, so it is a very difficult time in...

    There is too much ignorance here regarding nadal...

    I see people here saying that he'll at most win 11-12 slams in his career and that there is no freakin chance he'll beat federer's record. In nadal vs federer comparasions I see the 16 slams being thrown around. One of the reasons I see given of why nadal wont win as many slams in because he...

    Why is grand slam count given so much importance in determining GOAT?

    I dont get this. Each year 2 slams are played on hard courts but only 1 on clay and grass. Now sure you HAVE to be great on HC to be the most successful player of all time but success does not mean "greatest" now does it? Why should HC be given more weightage in determining the greatest player...

    Will nadal beat federer's grand slam record??

    I have noticed that people tend to ignore that rafa has had quite a head start over federer. Nadal is still 2 slams ahead compared to federer of rafa's current age and he will need to win either french or wimbledon to keep that gap. Nadal needs to win 2 grand slams every year to also have 16...
