    Swiatek, Osaka and Kenin, Possibly, Will Form the WTA Triumverate For the Forseeable Future

    If healthy, I can see Osaka, Barty, Andreescu and Swiatsk as the new big 4 for the foreseeable future. Kenin is not on their level imo but who knows maybe she’ll prove me wrong

    Yeah that was pretty much "my era" as well haha. I was born in 1990 so I'd say anything from the late 90s up until 2010 (ish) was the period of music I grew up listening to. I have younger cousins who are in high school right now and I just can't relate to the music they like...either teens have...

    Mac, Lendl and Edberg have had the best songs among the players we've done so far. 70s-early 90's hits are probably my favs despite only being 30

    Thing is, tennis has become such a lucrative sport once you've reached a certain level that they aren't going to go hungry if they don't win slams. This isn't the 1960s anymore where tennis was a night time side hustle to players who all held 9-5 jobs during the day and if you didn't win, you...

    Will Djokovic end up with 40 Masters and 20 Slams?

    I wouldn't be surprised if him and Rafa both have 20+ slams and 40+ Masters. Rafa is already at 20 slams and I don't think he's very far off from 40 Masters. Novak could easily win a couple more Masters to get 40, although 2 slams to get to 20 will have a bit more difficulty

    What is it that makes Rafa so GOATy on clay?

    It's damn near impossible to hit through him on dirt. You can beat on HC and grass if you bring your A+ game by hitting a ton of aces, unreturned serves, winners, and putting him on his back foot, while being opportunistic when returning his serve. It's just so much harder to do all of that...
