    So the GOAT debate may be settled by a few points?

    Very well written. While it shows that Fed pulled off some tough matches against Haas ans Roddick , he messed up two easy ones against Djokovic. Djokovic is the one who won maximum of these tight matches while losing only a few. The wawrinka matches should be added. Those matches are worth 1...

    How come Wawrinka is friends with both Federer and Djokovic

    Djokovic and Federer have a cold relationship that everyone knows. That developed through the years. And i dont think they respect and like each other. But when it comes to Djokovic Wawrinka , its a different story. They hace some tough matches over the years, but there is mutual respect and...

    Every open era great has won the YEC

    Ok. Since its about Nadal, lets see 2005 - injured, didnt play 2006-07 - indoor hard court . Federer at top form stopped him at semis. Else he wins 2008 - injured, didn't play 2009 - had physical issues. Lost all 3 matches 2010 - Beat djoker and murray. But Fed was too strong in finals 2011-12...

    Djokovic: Slams should be Best of 3 sets

    Djokovic, give back Wimbledon 2015 and AO 2020 titles. You had lost the QF and final respectively if it was best of 3. Also in AO 2012 semis

    Will Nole breaks Roger's 302 weeks at #1 ?

    What a thread. Shows that in tennis world so many things change. Fed improved on his count from 302 to 316. But Nadal and especially Djoker held it much longer. Unless Djoker loses in AO, the record is pretty much in the bag

    Will Djokovic ever win a tournament 10 times?

    Djokovic will win 10 australia opens it looks like. Finals record is staggering 8-0 Roger lost 4 finals in Wimbledon else would have been at 10 there. Frankly Halle and Basel being at 500 level doesn't carry that weight

    Djokovic or Nadal, who is the better US Open player?

    A no brainer thread. Winning 3 titles while losing 5 finals mean Djokovic underperformed at US Open. And it's a non clay slam. Djokovic overall is more consistent, 8 finals. But Nadal has achieved more. Also beat Djokovic in 2 finals while losing one. Peak Djokovic 2011 Peak Nadal 2013 ( In...

    Tennis players congratulate Rafa on 1000 wins :D

    Well I remember tennis players congratulating Roger on 100th title. Arranged by ATP. The players were playing in Dubai and Acapulco and ATP recorded their video in case Roger wins 100th. And he did

    Would Nadal and his fans trade.....

    Wtf is overrated. Hyped by ATP. Players take Indian Wells and Miami more seriously than WTF. By season end, usually the player who remains the most fit gets it. Just see 17 - Dimitrov 18 - Zverev 19 - Tispitas There's no competition. Slams are way ahead. It's just another ATP 1000 in terms of...

    will djokovic be penalized for tanking??

    It's obvious Nole tanked. His goal was to secure no. 1 and once he did that, he had no interest in wining. Lorenzo played well, but Djokovic let it go

    Novak Djokovic Trolled By Chris Evert For Calling Rivalry With Nadal 'greatest In Tennis'

    No it's not like these days. Those who have seen in 80s know how the woman's tour was. Beyond 4-5 players, others couldn't even hit decent shots and run. Today's ATP is more competitive. Quality of top 50 is definitely stong like PCB, Agut, Rublev for eg. They give a fight to the top players

    Novak Djokovic Trolled By Chris Evert For Calling Rivalry With Nadal 'greatest In Tennis'

    In 70s and 80s , women's tennis was in pathetic state. Chris and Martina would meet in the finals all the time. If tennis was so competitive as it is today, they won't meet half the times they have done. Nadal Djokovic is certainly more special and a bigger rivalry.

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

    Djokovic had to make another forehand pass to save mp in w 2019 final. Perfect forehand pass saved the day

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

    Djokovic serving at 7-7 in 5th and was facing 15-40. First a service winner, second point could have gone anywhere but Nadal rushed to net and Djoker made a perfect forehand pass. Those were virtual match points Ultimately Nadal was exhausted and throw away at 8-9

    Nadal confirms participation in Paris Masters one day after Djokovic confirmed he's not playing Paris

    Finally they are playing looking at points. Djoker has nothing to gain from Paris so skipping there But he can gain an potential 500 points from Vienna. Rafa can gain potential 640 points from Paris

    Losing 6-0 vs losing from 8-7 40-15

    The stupidity of this thread amazes me. How does FO match compare with Wimby match. Do everything to be compared with Wimby match. Fail to understand. Now logically, FO 2020 match compares to other similar matches like FO 2008 final or FO 2008 semifinal..matches where Nadal dominated...

    Something Djokovic achieved but the other two didn’t

    1. Nadal likely beats Federer in US Open from 2010 onwards. So that gives him win at all 4 slams. But he never got the chance at the first place..when he didn't get the chance and Novak got multiple chances to face Fed , how is that an achievement for Novak compared to Nadal. 2) Djoker...

    Who would have most RG titles without Nadal on the way : Federer or Djokovic ?

    Federer : 2005, 06,07,08 ,11 Djokovic : 2012,13,14,20 Whatever scenarios we are seeing now with Nadal out of the way would entirely change. First the question marks? 2008: Yes Djokovic gave a better fight to Nadal. But Fed beat him that year in Monte Carlo and used to impose his game during...

    What was match where Federer developed pure fear of Djokovic?

    No. Federer wiped him in wtf semis couple of months later. USO 2011 and more importantly USO 2015 was turning point. In Cincinnati 2015, he still beat Djokovic convincingly

    Something Djokovic achieved but the other two didn’t

    Hmm..luck definitely plays a part. Roger Rafa never met at US open. Rafa didn't reach finals in 2008,09 and meet Roger. Was one match away Similar Roger lost in semis twice at 2010,11 then lost to Robredo and Delpotro in 2013 and 2017 resp. Was one match away. Djokovic just surrendered...

    Can Roger still do it?

    Please note there is a huge difference between 37 years 11 months at 2019 and 39 years 11 months at 2021

    Rafa took the advice...........

    The high ball had many benefits 1) Novaks favourite ploy against Rafa is forehand to backhand and keep on going till he gets an error or advantage position. But Rafa negated that by hitting backhand to backhand. Djokovic can't risk going to Nadals forehand hence it was often backhand to backhand...

    Fellow Fed fans, it's time to move the goalposts

    Ok. My bad..been so long ago. So after being two sets up, fed faced a issue due to which the match just slipped away

    Fellow Fed fans, it's time to move the goalposts

    Thats a very famous record more so at that time. Fed won 23 finals in a row from 2003 till 2005 year end masters. Only ended by a 5 set loss to nalbandian in which he has injured but fought till the end despite being 2 sets down. Had we won that match, his 2005 year loss Record would have been...

    Do you think there should be a YE#1 for 2020?

    This year's no.1 is so stupid in terms of new ranking points system. It's possible that a player doesn't play at all and still be no. 1 for 2020 because all 2019 points are retained. How do you justify that. Its a half season. But if you're gonna have no. 1 give only 2020 points. Anyway djoker...
