    What if Sampras played at Wimbledon 2021?

    He would need a favorable draw like Connors US Open 91 to have any chance getting to the 4th round.

    What if Sampras played at Wimbledon 2021?

    Pete has some old chronic injuries and a blood issue. Different genetics then Federer At 49 it would a tough ask. But if he pulled out all his guile experience and skill who knows!

    Highest level of one-time US Open champion?

    I loved Cilic in that US Open. He was blasting heavy deep shots off both wings Big lots of length. Safin 2000 anything with PETE in it has got to be good!

    Peak for peak: Raonic vs Roddick, Nishikori vs Hewitt

    I always liked Nishikori's game especially for a 5'10 player. He was born brittle unfortunately. And competed in the most physical era in tennis history. Blew his tires and engine out. Raonic's serve is awesome.

    Stefanos Tsitsipas

    Not sure about this but it seems his game might be the best on the red clay of Paris? His game confuses me a bit.

    Toni Nadal hired as the coach of Felix Auger Aliassime

    Well maybe he can at least help get him into the semi's of majors. That woulld seem to be a moderate goal.

    Uncle Toni does not just coach anyone. He must see something in the young lad.

    My apologies @clayqueen and @octobrina10. Fingers crossed they do not cancel the French and or Wimbledon. Rafa needs to get this 21 done!

    Federer made a mistake...what am I missing?

    Fed needed to do what he needed to do to stay relevant win and compete as the sport became more physical with longer rallies. He has talked about this. As he stated "Novak is the ultimate challenge". It was not just for Nadal.

    Federer made a mistake...what am I missing?

    Roddick mentioned that. 2019 Wimbledon Fed lost a step. Passing shots harder for him to execute. For some reason i am fascinated listening to these pros analyze. Cannot wait to read Pete's book.

    Federer made a mistake...what am I missing?

    I wish one of Fed's fans would confront him and explain to him that he "massively worsened" his forehand. Love to hear Fed's reply.

    Federer as Sampras version 2.0 ...

    I need to order that book. Might walk down to the library and see if there is a copy there. He had that great 3 year run. Won all his masters finals 5-0. He was in that group of American tennis prodigies. Came out of that Bollettieri big forehand baseline game.

    Federer as Sampras version 2.0 ...

    Never was really big on Courier's game to be honest. Big forehand. Once the tour solved him he was mostly done at the top. Great analyst and commentator tho.

    That day when Denis Istomin was too strong for the AO GOAT at AO!

    Istomin is a solid physically strong player. Proud of him! The pros will tell you the physicality, depth and competition is at your heels contrary to what is claimed on TTW. This is not the Frankenstein's mummy hipensteel era.

    Why did the Becker-Nole partnership end?

    Djokovic is a searcher. He is the one of the big 3 that requires outside motivation and teaching the most. Boris phase ended. He was searching for the "new" for the next phase of his career.

    Nadal - Djokovic H2H skewness... numbers

    Same ole same ole story. It is always something. Djokovic could win 200 in a row fedal wins one and "that is the real peak fedal!".

    Nadal - Djokovic H2H skewness... numbers

    It is but that is life. One reason i give considerable weight to the 2015 straight set victory over Nadal at the French Open. I do not care if Nadal was not at his best. Djokovic was there again in 2016 Nadal was not.

    Is Djokovic more like Sampras or Agassi?

    Can you imagine Pete showing up at your match? If Pete attends a master series match that is the highest form of flattery! Pete does not go anywhere for anyone!

    Roger Federer: ‘People still ask me about that Novak Djokovic defeat at Wimbledon’

    That old Fed bh would be in big trouble. He would need to hit more forehands and that would not be a very good long term solution.

    Did Nole's forehand peak in late 2007 / Early 2008?

    I will argue Fed did evolve. According to his own words. Like Andy Roddick stated on the tennis channel GOAT debate May 2020. When he played Novak the last time and it was on grass. The game is on another level these players are not what i have been used to playing. Not exact words but it is on...

    Roger Federer: ‘People still ask me about that Novak Djokovic defeat at Wimbledon’

    Just rewatched Wimbledon 2015 final last night. W 2015 and AO 2016. Any hypothetical river denial "version" of Fed would be in deep deep doo doo. BOAT levels Djokovic is basically connors and agassi taken to the next level with size, movement and great serve as well. When we talk about...
