    Please explain ATP Rankings Nishikori ahead of Federer

    He has more points from the last twelve months - it’s not rocket science. Remember Fed has no clay points.

    Prime Nadal vs Prime Sampras at the French Open - Only Sampras Serves - Who Wins?

    Well, it’s clear this isn’t going in for you (1) he said “math skills” not “mental ability” (2) he referred to “math skills” NOT to say that Nadal fans are stupid THEREFORE you should believe Sampras would win (that is an ad hominem) . What he said was the maths doesn’t favour Nadal (according...

    Prime Nadal vs Prime Sampras at the French Open - Only Sampras Serves - Who Wins?

    What he said is not even close to an ad hominem. He said people who have “poor maths skills” believe Nadal would win - it is therefore implicit in his argument that he believes maths favours Sampras over Nadal thus and that is NOT an ad hominem. If you are going to bring up formal fallacies on...

    Murray To Retire At Wimbledon

    I think we all knew this was coming but it’s hard to think about. I can’t see him playing between the AO and Wimbledon, there’s too much risk and I think he wants to finish his career there no matter how badly he gets beaten.

    I think it’s 250s - Eurosport 500s - Amazon Prime Masters - Amazon Prime AO - Eurosport FO - Eurosport W - BBC USO - Amazon Prime WTF - Amazon Prime / BBC(?) I assume the BBC keeps Queen’s though and I think Eastbourne is with Prime.

    If Fed were to play Nadal at the US Open?

    Peak Federer was 2013, anyone who says otherwise is neglecting the strong competion from Nadal and Djokovic that year. My evidence? Peak Fedr, dismantling the grass giant at Halle.

    Should there be a 750 designation?

    I would be fine with that. IW + MI should probably be 1,500 and then 2,000 for WTF and 2,500 for Slams. I’d have MC + Bercy + Madrid(?) as 750s, maybe Canada as well.

    Any idea why this might be? I assume it’s unusual for Fed to cancel practises.

    The rule as it is is perfectly fine. I’ve always been one to wear my heart on my sleeve so I can’t say I blame anyone for the practice.

    Do we just take anyone with a one-handed backhand and call them the next Federer on here?

    Would you rather win 1 slam or 100 masters?

    100 Masters. Although for there to be a scenario where someone is capable of winning 100 Masters and not a slam is unfathomable - maybe Zverev will prove us wrong.

    Was Sampras one of the most boring Athletes Of All Time ?

    I like Pete's game but I suppose his demeanour was fairly uninteresting. Koepka at #3 is a bit unfair, he's hardly exciting (I like his game though) but he's only just started to realise he actually likes golf so give him a bit of time, lol.

    OBJECTIVELY: What are your main "GOAT" criteria / career ranking system?

    So Federer: 40 + 10 + 6 + 27 + 38.75 = 121.75 Nadal: 34 + 7 + 0 + 33 + 24.375 = 98.375 Djokovic: 28 + 9 + 5 + 32 + 27.875 = 101.875 Seems fairly definitive for now. Sorry if my maths is off.

    OBJECTIVELY: What are your main "GOAT" criteria / career ranking system?

    In no specific order - Slam Titles - Career Grand Slam - Weeks at #1 and Year End #1 - Dominance - Masters and WTFs - Intangibles I think you can make a convincing argument for any of the big 3 to be the greatest of all time; Federer has the slam titles, the weeks at #1, dominance from 04-07...

    Fellow Fed fans, don't be sad

    Since the Wimbledon loss to Anderson I’ve started expecting Federer to lose every match, which has actually made it far more enjoyable to watch him, the losses don’t hurt and almost everything is positive. Even this decline isn’t that bad, losses to Anderson, Coric (x2), Djokovic and del Potro...
