    "One is still a boy, the other is a man now!"

    Djokovic has an endurance problem!

    Ever since Covid Cup in Serbia. Doesn't always manifest itself very noticeably, but it is present. That's what plagued Nadal in 2015, which is why it was such a horrendous year for him. Stamina is a very important part of both's game and provides them their mental edge, more so with Nadal...

    Azeranka looks different

    Just me that noticed? Hope everything is 'legal' with her regimen, just saying!

    Anybody watch Mobile Suit Gundam - The Origin?

    Fantastic anime series! Its essentially a prequel to the older Gundam franchise that includes various movies, series, and also mangas from years and years ago. Adult Swim showed it here in the States, 13 episodes that ended on Oct 5, its still available on demand. I found it fascinating! I'm...

    Is this a repeat of 09?

    As a Nadal fan, I sincerely hope not. But something about Medvedev this year is reminding me of Delpo's 09 USO run...

    How much would you pay?

    to hit with one of the 'lower ranked' pros on tour??? Saw a special about the struggles of pros ranked lower than 150th or so. Noah Rubin was the subject of the show (it was on CBS, search on youtube and you'll find it) and they highlighted what his life is like and the various frustrations he...

    Nadal's new level of zen...

    It's either because he's extremely confident or nervous about his upcoming nuptials, or both. Either way it's resulted in him playing very freely this USO. Given what happened tonight with djokovic, we'll see if this new 'carefreeness' means good things for the Spaniard.

    Why in the world is ESPN and ESPN2 not showing matches together tonight?!?

    Ridiculous! The Shaps Monfils match is worthy!

    Chung's 2HBH is the best in the game!

    sorry Djokovic, Nishi, Cilic, whomever else. if we're talking just the BH, Chung has them (yes including Djokovic) beat! Chung has a truly outstanding 2hbh! Nadal and Federer should practice with Chung (from his BH side) as often as they can, because if one can handle his BH they certainly...

    Medvedev reacts to his loss to Nadal...

    So the guy is obviously intelligent, you can tell, and doesn't have a stereotypical 'jock like' mentality even though he can lose his temper. he didn't offer a lot in his presser today, here are the tidbits i found most interesting: he says the Big 3 play completely differently from one...

    So now it's official: the USO is the most neutral slam among the ATG-3.

    Wimbledon should now be considered a Federer and Djokovic as co-favorites. AO should also be considered a Federer and Djokovic as co-favorites IMO. at RG, Nadal is a heavy favorite. this is assuming all 3 are at least reasonably healthy and in decent form. that leaves the US Open...

    The 'Fed Slasher'. Is Federer's 'neo' BH possible against Djokovic?

    the neo BH is a big part of 'Fed Slasher'... Federer's 'new' (since the 5th set of AO 2017) bashing, high risk style of taking time and rhythm away from Nadal does not produce the aesthetically pleasing epic matches that are considered classics between two from before. Now, its obviously a...

    SO, win or lose, Federer's...

    current tactic against Nadal of trying to rob him of time and rhythm: results in far less tantalizing matches!

    Nadal fans: did/will his 2nd rd win over NK help or ultimatley hurt him?

    this match was played at a very high level! Nadal had to step it up to beat NK, with good serving - a really good FH (great depth and power) - and good improvisation. His returning could have been better, but he got the job done and if it wasn't for him losing his concentration in the 2nd set...

    NK would have beaten Tennis Vegeta today...

    making it 3-0 amongst the tennis bad guys.
  17. DRII

    who else is secretly pining for a NK/Djokovic matchup at Wimbledon?!?

    would effing love it! so much drama, so much hype surrounding this match if it were to happen, especially if its rather early on in the tournament, like a 4th round!

    2019 ATG slam count. Which slam is the most 'neutral' among the 3?

    So far its 1 for Djokovic and 1 for Nadal... Aussie Open seems to be pretty much in Djokovic's (Tennis Vegeta) hands if he's on form, with some possible variance based on past history. RG is almost a certainty for Nadal if he's healthy and just playing at least decently. Wimbledon: this one...

    So I wasn't crazy! Wimbledon reverses stupid rule regarding roof usage after last's years 'controversial' semi between Nadal and Djokovic!

    https://metro.co.uk/2019/04/30/nadal-djokovic-roof-controversy-sparks-wimbledon-rule-change-murray-learns-wildcard-deadline-9368482/ Happened back in April. I don't remember it receiving any 'coverage' on TTW. anyway, this proves that Tennis Vegeta's antics were noticed and consequently...

    'New Grass' plays much closer to hardcourt! and don't forget it.

    to all of you Nadal haters who complain so much about a clay skew to his resume, you all need to admit that 'new grass' is very close to HC! certainly much more than it was in Borg's or Sampras' day! Federer didn't win Wimbledon until the terra became terra firma! so your argument that...

    Nadal's health has been his biggest foe!

    not Federer, not Djokovic, no, it's been his countless injuries and resulting time outs. and with all that, he's still won 18 slams thus far! Lucky (Nadal's competition), very lucky.

    Djokovic is the Putin of tennis... if...

    he had absolutely anything to do with the premature cancelation of today's match! this is beyond the PAIL! shameful!

    TC coverage...

    this is their first mostly exclusive coverage of a slam in the States. and I'm sorry to say, they have been almost complete w*ores! constant TCplus commercials, advertisements during changeovers, announcers obviously coached to almost constantly 'pitch' a sale, blash, blah, blah. just...

    Uhm, can they please change the color of the tennis balls when played on clay!!!

    would that be blasphemy?!? my aging eyes have trouble picking up the ball on red clay, especially if the camera angle is too high! instead of the normal yellow, how about a more greenish yellow...or, wait for it, a pale blue would offer excellent contrast! just do it already :mad:

    Djokovic relative popularity in China? Perhaps its 'Valter" brani Sarajevo (1972)...

    Valter, Valter... one of the first international movies that became very popular in China. about the freeing of Sarajevo from the Nazis or there abouts. perhaps this help explains Djokovic's popularity in China?
