    "I made more mistakes because he pushed me..." - Nadal

    There was a lot going on early in the match obviously but there was one point in particular 3rd or 4th or 5th game on Nadal's serve where Novak ran down 3 or 4 absolute bombs from Nadal, sent them back with interest causing Nadal to overhit one wide. It was absurdly good defence from Djokovic...

    2019 Australian Open SF: Rafael Nadal [2] vs Stefanos Tsitsipas

    That was brutal. How can you not love Rafa with the way he plays? Stefanos poses no threat to Nadal yet. But how can you not hate him with how full of s**t he is in interviews? He basically lies about everything. It's pathological.

    I really thought I'd be saving them for the choke-off between Pouille and Raonic but I guess the lolz come early today.

    Does ANYONE think Kei has a chance to beat Djoker?

    Novak's been doing enough. He knows he needs to pace himself, particularly with the conditions in Australia. Needless to say he's done it pretty well here in the past. He's only dropped 2 sets and has soundly beaten those opponents after dropping a set. I think he wants this pretty bad and...

    Nadal will beat Tsitsipas

    It's fair to say the match rests on Sits BH. DTL needs to be spectacular because he can't really rip the BH cross court hard enough or low enough to hurt Nadal. He needs DTL to be able to break the Nadal FH onslaught. Nads won't want to hit BH DTL on the run himself too much so if Sits actually...

    2019 Australian Open - WTA Thread

    How do people watch this stuff? It's absolutely dismal. Pliskova had her pegged in the first set very effectively with the simplest strategy in tennis: side to side. And now what? She's just going away for no reason whatsoever.

    2019 Australian Open 4th Round: Simona Halep [1] vs Serena Williams

    I can state this quite confidently as someone who hasn't watched a women's match since the days of Evert and Graf: peak Serena would've had Halepeno covered.

    2019 Australian Open 4R - [4] Alexander Zverev vs. [16] Milos Raonic

    What a great day. I received a new watch that I've been hoping to get for a long time, sushi for lunch, my wife has basically given me the day off everything, a nice long afternoon slot in my schedule for a run, I've got a couple of other things ready to watch if Zverev turns it around, but...

    Federer is done winning slams or even reaching slam finals, goodbye champ

    Tsitsipas will win at least 6 slams

    I hope so. He can carry the torch for my two philanthropic interests: ABZ and the Society for the Preservation of the One-Handed Backhand. He plays courageous tennis and he wouldn't be the first ATG to clock a few MTOs and time violations.

    2019 Australian Open 2R - [16] Milos Raonic vs. Stan Wawrinka

    Stanimal is on his way back. He drifts off at the start of either the 1st or 2nd sets. Don't worry folks, he'll be pointing at his skull and his opponents will be limping again in no time.

    Get out of town, Fognini has his own logo?!

    Watching Fabio going through the motions with the press like he's a stable, calm character is just priceless. I think I want a Fog hat, though god knows where they're sold.

    Djokovic thinks he can surpass Federer

    For me, Nole doesn't need the slam count to be GOAT. I can accept that the slam count is the simplest and broadest GOAT definition available and this is a minority opinion. Of course he needs a bit more but if he aims for the slam count, he could pick up a few more records that Roger simply...

    Federer's 2018 a tale of 2 seasons.

    He just had to keep hitting to Delpo's forehand didn't he? Just haaaad to keep doing it. As a Ferrerderer fan, I gotta say I'm with @MeatTornado on this. I hope he can rest up and rebuild his platform to have a blistering AO19 at a higher level than the back end of this season, before the legs...

    The problem with Tomas Berdych A.L.S.O.R.A.N claims: Gasquet and Ferrer rivalries

    Sure he was, is and will be boring but the H2H is not telling the full picture here. If we're going to persist with quantitative analysis, at the very least we're going to need a Melesian analysis of his second serve percentages by opponent, including against lost gen titans Raonic, Nishikori...

    FED 2018 in Review: How A GOAT gets old

    He might have ended the season with a loss to Zverev but the beatdown he gave him in the Hopman Cup 0 and 2 in the 2nd and 3rd sets was outstanding. Up there with Halle 2017.

    2018 ATP Finals Final: (1.) Novak Djokovic vs. (3.) Alexander Zverev

    Anyone think Novak more or less bailed out at important moments in the match? Physical or mental fatigue, tanking etc, dunno, don't care. Sure looked like he was ready to check out in the big moments after 3-3 in each set. Novak certainly has the level to murder Zverev. I'll be amazed if Zverev...

    The winner here is Federer

    As a Ferrerderer fan, it was indeed a good year. The only blemish is on the team's record is Thiem's performance. Taking Nadal's legs out at the USO does not compensate for gifting Nadal another FO. He needs to stop Nadal at FO19 or he's off the team. Enough is enough.
