    Is it possible to be a “Fedal fan?”

    i play lefty.. so i always followed left handed players with particular interest. that did allow me the perspective to also then root for righties. and that is how i became a Fedal fan.

    The greatness of Djokovic

    Also the same guy who throated a ball in the Us Open and lost in straight sets a few weeks later.. one of those sets was a bagel.

    Poll about Nadal & Djokovic rivalry

    tons of people care. it is pretty telling... the slams are clearly and very obvious in that they end up with a tangible piece of hardware. the head to head is the undeniable results of each player pitting their talents against the other. we have never been in a heated battle on this scale...

    Chances of Federer still winning Slam race?

    no matter where things end up.. the story the world loved was the Fed and Nadal one.. and Novak will be mentioned as a part of that even if he becomes the one with the trophies.

    Are there any good foam insoles? My knees are hurting after each match.

    i got orthotics when i realized my insurance covered them 100%.. nothing foamy about them.. extremely hard plastic and it has been transformative. i only where them in my tennis shoes and they are great... you would think they would be harsh on the feet and knees and hips even.. not at all. it...

    How long shall Nadal continue to win RG?

    this might be it.. i love the guy, but i thought he was going down this year. 2 more absolute most.. 23 majors total.. if he stays healthy.. which he can't.

    If it wasn’t for throatgate and Wimbledon being cancelled..

    If it wasn't for covid- Nadal would have defended the US Open and Wimbledon would have been played.. if it wasn't for Novaks carelessness he might have won the US open.. if it wasn't again for covid the French would have been played in the heat and the new balls wouldn't have been so...

    When Federer hit 20in AO 18

    People keep going back and forth on matches fed should have nailed down.. the truth can be said for his opponents.. that's tennis. Nadal should have won in Australia.. he had that match on his racket. the lost generation garbage is also silly since almost no one can beat these 3 still..a...

    Roddick's comments during AO'17 on Federer: "if he wins one more, it pretty much puts the all-time slams record out of reach"

    It wasn't an outrageous hypothesis at the time. novak throating that ball might be incredibly significant .

    Would 13 French Opens be the most impressive Tennis record?

    Pick your poison Federer fans

    federer proves his genius by missing the entire pandemic which saw an absence of Wimbledon, Novak throat balling a lines judge, and now a showdown tomorrow in Paris. All in all Fed is still king

    Can Modification Improve Average to Great?

    Sort of off topic, and not. i just got a new Diadem Nova for $ and shipping was under a hundred. This thing is super comfortable and controllable Pure drive type frame and plays stiffer than its rating with supreme comfort due to its foam filled. i will probably alter it slightly with...

    Federer hits ball kid . USTA didn't default him .

    obviously the tennis players need to wake up. the rules need clarification with zero tolerance for reckless handling of the ball. discard all balls softly with a roll to the perimeter. no more launching balls to the upper decks during a match. throwing rackets and the like with clear...

    Best tennis shoes for UK astro turf with sand?

    i live in the states and never saw another astro turf court beyond the two courts in my small beach town. baffling surface. the skids, irregular bounce, and the sand. i will say the court lasts forever. I'm 52 and i played on this court since I was a kid. it was resurfaced 5 years ago and...

    i feel pretty lucky to go and pick up a used elevate tour a few weeks back. i rarely buy rackets completely blind. i have now played 12 sets with it and it is undefeated. loved it from the very first hit and don't feel any need to customize it. so maneuverable and comfortable with surprising...
