    Roland Garros 2011 served as a vital ingredient in tilting Nadal-Djokovic rivalry heavily in favour of Djoko in the following years

    what if djoko had met rafa in that final? on the back of the confidence of beating him in 4 finals already that year in masters events........do you think he would have defeated rafa? having watched rafa for so long, i don't think so........rafa was in his prime and would have still found a...

    Post Corona phase - Big 3 will never be the same

    that is a long vacation and at the age of mid-late 30s, it will be difficult for big-3 to exhibit the same level of tennis........biggest loser would be obviously djoko who was really on a roll.......i think that slight drop of level in their careers post this mess will be enough for new...

    Do we have a player among next gen/new gen whose forehand is at least anywhere near the level of that of the big-3?

    Thiem did not approach the AO final in a positive way

    after his victory over zverev in the semis, he told the crowd how he had to play all time greats in all 3 slam finals and tried to make an excuse in advance if he loses......that’s not the right mindset and i think it proved quite bad in the end......who did he expect in the final? fucsovics...
