    Its not the end

    Add 2015 to that list too... If the USO somehow speeds up next year, there's a chance, at 38 no less, Connors got to the semis at 39...

    Why has Dimitrov been so poor since winning WTF?

    There's still hope for Dimi, if he hangs around long enough and makes a few changes. The serve needs tweaking for sure, maybe even overhauling, a smoother, more economical motion, with proper slice and topspin technique, and a better ball toss, maybe even shorten it, and use more RHS. Also, like...

    French Open 2018 semifinal :- Dominic Thiem[7] vs M. Cecchinato

    I would have to agree with all you've put. His BH DTL was terrible during the match, and always seems to be the shot he loses when tight; just shows how much Nole was in the zone during 2011. But, (dare I say) the elbow problems might just be behind him now, and his serve is looking a lot better...

    French Open 2018 semifinal :- Dominic Thiem[7] vs M. Cecchinato

    Nole was too passive in general throughout the match. (even desperate at times) I think his abilty is there, fitness is getting there, but mentally not quite tuned in just yet.

    Never thought I'd miss Andy Murray that much

    It's surprising that Muzz did better in 2011, although he played quite poorly in '14; '15 and '16 versions might have pushed it to 5.

    New tennis shoes killing me feet

    It sounds like your shoes are a bit tight for width, or the arches are a bit high. Perhaps wear them as much as you can to break them in more; it takes me around 10 hours (sometimes more) to break mine in, while my feet ache in the process.

    SW Doesn't get a seeding at FO, is that a bad thing?

    If you are unable to play, why should the reason (s) for being unable to play matter? The top ten WTA players could all have babies at the same time, and return to the tour at the same time demanding special treatment. (maybe having their rankings protected, and have seedings for majors etc)...

    Wimbledon final 2008

    Fed's shot was better, Rafa has burnt Fed with that FH pass since their rivalry started, same can't be said about Fed with his BH pass... Also, let's not forget about Fed potentially breaking the record for consecutive W titles, surely that was a factor in his somewhat pressured performance...

    Agassi Novak disagreements - what about ?

    I'd like to believe that's the case, but it's no coincidence that poor results, are likely to have caused the split more so.

    Agassi Novak disagreements - what about ?

    A player/coach relationship is doomed from the start, if the player doesn't listen, or value their coaches, err...coaching... It's starting to look like a pattern now for Nole, he seems to be blaming his corner, or coaches now that he's on a bad streak of form, I mean, how can Agassi not have...

    Understanding Federer: The post 2012 years(Reorganising his game to 2017 Success)

    I would have to agree with what you've put. I think as well in 2014, Fed's ground game in general was a little off, on good days he was fine, but not masterful, and when it came to the big points, his groundies sometimes fell apart, especially on the BH. For instance in his semi at AO against...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    I've not used them myself, but from what I've read, the SFX2 is a bit wider and less supportive. I would certainly recommend the Asics Gel Res 6/7, as I have used them, and they are brilliant!

    Novak: Anything other than No1 and Slams wil not be good enough time

    I would have to agree with this, delusions of grandeur spring to mind really; his corner and the resurgence of Fedal seem to have put a lot of unsubstantiated wind in his sails. I mean yeah, sure if they can do it, why can't I approach seems to be where's Nole is coming from, but everyone's...

    Can't believe AO 2018 is coming

    Yep. I would tend to agree, this year has gone fast. As far as Nole vs Istomin is concerned, lights out Istomin vs Burnt-out, injured, (he was pushing his FH and serve like at '16 USO) Djokovic, with surprisingly quick conditions which amplified how out-of-sorts Nole was/is.

    Hard court tennis

    Nadal is fortunate to have had such an easy USO draw,when his toughest match was against Mayer. You can only beat who's on the other side of the net,but still,let's not overrate Rafa's achievement too much.

    2016 AO Djokovic vs 2017 AO Federer

    I'm leaning towards Nole in 5. Although, Fed had chances in the 4th set in '16 and should have pushed it to 5, then, who knows? Would Nole's form have run out like it did a bit in the 3rd? In '17 on a faster court with faster balls, you never know, and with the improved BH, Fed wouldn't get...

    Djokovic's decline

    Perhaps playing full schedules is behind Nole now, not just physically but mentally, and with it, maybe no1 ranking, for a while at least. Does he have the motivation to put all those hard hours in to maintain his freakish physical attributes? If not, half his game has gone, so perhaps he needs...

    Murray's tennis IQ

    I never really thought Murray a great tactician, as his game is a bit one dimensional. In saying that, he has perhaps top 3 of all time defensive skills, which is something he can always rely on, health permitting. He has solid groundes that rarely break down, and an excellent ROS. I'm not sure...
