    The fact that the crowd got behind Medevev are the fans open to the changing of the guard and ready for the new generation

    Medvev has become a new crowd favorite of the US Open and I don't remember a young player even being as charismatic and playing with the crowd like he does. I know the media tried to build up Grigor but he was not original and too much of a Fed clone. Sascha is not charming enough, Tiafoe does...

    Each player of the Big Three has a grandslam they feel connected to more then others in terms of atompshere. For example, Federer is it is Wimbledon, Djokovic is the French Open since he lives in Monaco but would you say for Nadal it is the US Open. Nadal does dominate the French Open but I...

    US Open is proving the be the hardest grandslam for the Big Three

    I am not being bias but the US Open is proving to be by far the toughest test in tennis. There was a time it used to be the French Open due to clay surface but as more money, sponsors, growth, investment in the grandslams continue to happen, the US Open is proving to be the most lucrative and...

    Is Uniqlo doing the job Nike did for Federer's brand? Will Uniqlo be able to immortalize the Federer brand once he retires.

    Would you say that Wimbledon crowd are now the Jekyll and Hyde fans

    Each grand slam and its crowd is distinct and different in their own way. Aussie Open is known to have happy fans. French are known to be the snobbish and hardest fans to please.

    The Royals are not even hiding their bias anymore.

    Novak has won his fifth title and the royals have to do their duties in congraulating the champion. In watching this video, they looked angry and dissapointed. Prince William was not friendly or personable and had a second delay in shaking Novak's parents' hands.

    Novak looked like Goku and Federer played like Vegeta

    Dragonball fans after watching this match, I am convinced now that Novak is Goku now and Federer is Vegeta. Goku has all the skills but he has heart and mental toughness that helps him when his back was against the wall. Goku's will to fight comes from the fact that he loves his friends and...

    Roger Federer= The Establishment and Djokovic= The Outsider

    When watching the Wimbledon I am convinced this match was not about tennis but about nationalism. The way those fans were reacting it was more like a football match then a tennis match, I have never seen a disrespectful group of fans. When framing the narrative a lot of people want to make you...

    Is it me or does the French Open feel less like a grandslam then the other slams

    I have watched the Grandslams for a long time and each slam comes with a different feeling, atomsphere etc. The French Open seems to be the less exciting grandslam in terms of atomsphere. To me it reminds me more a large tennis tournament, however the vibe seems off. Does anybody feel this way?

    Sloane Stephens gave scope on Serena and will her image be tarnished after US Open meltdown

    As a long time Serena fan I can easily say that behavior at the US Open was bad and embarrasing to watch. She has been trying for the last five years to turn a new leaf, soften up her image and also show more maturity. What we saw from her was a spoiled petulant child not a mature woman. Her...

    What is so annoying about Serena's new fame as a mother

    I love Serena Williams but tired of the media. What is so annoying about Serena's new fame as a mother is how the media overhypes everything. They act like she is only woman to ever give birth to a baby and the only woman to ever come back to sports after being a mother. You have women on the...

    Do you think Serena Williams should end her partnership with Patrick Mouratoglou

    I say this not because she lost to Angelique but because Patrick is too dominering and controlling over Serena and he seeks being a glory hog to Serena's accomplishments. I thought that when Serena got together with Patrick, they were a temporary partnership to help Serena recharge and refocus...

    After all of this I believe women should go Bof5 QF and beyond

    I am not a sexist,but I call the truth like I see it. The men are just showing out more and more and showing why they deserve more money then the women. Bof5 is labor intensive and requires more mental concentration, strength and heart then doing Bo3. Don't get me wrong women's tennis is...
