    D. Shapovalov has to work a lot more

    He should try to spend more time watching Eminem and others if he wants to be a decent rapper. He has the potential. I hope we see him performing on stage in coming months.

    Very disappointed with Nadal

    Just doesn't have the belief against Novak. He looks like Nishikori playing Djokovic right now. A lot of unnecessary unforced errors that Novak doesn't even need. Too afraid to go for his shots. I guess only Staminal has the courage to go for his shots against this Novak.

    Kyrgios: Murray better player than Djokovic. More scary than Federer, Nadal

    "When I played Roger, when I played Rafa, I wasn’t as scared of those guys as I was of Andy,” Kyrgios said. “I knew that his game was a lot tougher for a guy like me to play, I knew he was going to make a lot of balls, so I felt so young when I played him the first couple of times. “I didn’t...

    Federer: The court speed (of US Open 2018) is good for me

    Federer confirms the court speed is slow, much to his liking. “I like playing here. I think the court speed’s good for me. I’m happy in this country. I’m happy in New York,” he said. “I think coming to New York, I think you get a better feel [compared to Cincinnati]. The balls are easier to...

    Is Genie Bouchard still playing or full time modelling now?

    She's a good model and used to play good tennis too. I follow her on Instagram and it's hard to tell if she still plays tennis or is a full time model. Just wanted to know if she still plays tennis. Asking for a friend.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) will be bigger than The Avengers.

    You heard it here first. I'm excited it's going to have most of the most bad-ass monsters like King Ghidorah, Rodan, Mothra, etc. Always wanted to see some of these big monsters on the big screen. Especially Ghidorah.

    Todd Martin: Djokovic more talented than Federer and Nadal

    Federer and Nadal are the top two players in the world and have won 37 Grand Slam titles between them. But Martin thinks Novak Djokovic is more technically gifted and he would go down as the greatest of all time if he had not been damned with injuries. The Serbian added Grand Slam No 13 to his...

    How many more weeks can Nadal add to his weeks at #1?

    I'd like him to reach 200 weeks in total for weeks spent at #1. I'm fine if he doesn't get more. 200 weeks at #1 looks much better than 150 or 180. He is at 181 right now. With Federer unable to defend his Wimbledon points, Nadal can remain number until US Open or even until 2019. Discuss.

    Federer fans and Nadal fans, whom you gonna support in the final?

    Even before the Nadal-Djokovic semi final had ended, I couldn't help thinking that if Djokovic won the semi final, Kevin would have a better chance, albeit about 20-30%, of lifting the trophy. Everything is working out so well for Kevin. He's played his best tennis in the last few days. I didn't...

    Nadal's 900th win

    His victory over Marterer was his 900th career win. "I don't feel old. But I am 32, and I have been here since 2003, so it's a long way, a lot of years," he said. "I started very young. That's a real thing. But, no, I feel happy to be here. Being honest, I am enjoying the day by day on the...

    Zverev on clay is underrated

    Results don't lie. Cilic, Thiem, Djokovic, to name some of his top ranked victims on clay. The reigning Italian Open champion, also Madrid Masters champion, has worked hard on clay since the 6-1, 6-1 spanking by the Nadal. His results on the surface show that he, not Dominic Thiem, is the prince...

    I was wrong about Next Gen ATP finals

    I was one of the many to make fun of the Next Gen Finals held in Milan in November 2017. I thought of it like a joke. Like giving freebies to kids who can't get anything on their own. But I was wrong! Winning the Next Gen Finals has given Chung so much confidence. He is one of the few players I...

    Who else thinks the ATP Facebook page is over posting about Federer and Nadal?

    I am a fan of Nadal and Roger's my (distant) second favourite player. It's nice to read about them. But, surely tennis isn't just about them. I am getting a bit fed up of constant Fedal posts on the ATP Facebook page like other players aren't worth talking about. 'Look what Roger Federer did...
