    Federer Doha 2005 vs Djokovic Doha 2016

    So, he did nothing much. Precisely my point. I don't remember him struggling to string 4-5 shots in a row like that. He struggled against all top 30 players who played decent in 2015-2016. Think Djokovic 2017-early 2018.

    Federer Doha 2005 vs Djokovic Doha 2016

    I'd also not seen Nadal make so many errors and unable to string 5-6 shots together like he did that match against Djokovic.

    Most surprising rankings in the ATP Top 30?

    Still higher than Fedr.

    Identifying trhe best players from each generation

    He was born in December 1989. That's more like early 90s than mid 80s. Nishikori, Raonic and Dimitrov are the Lost Boys of tennis in recent years. They had some talent between them but not one of them could win a Slam.

    The King is not dead yet!

    *Nadal likes this* Rafa: For sure, one handed-backhand is fantastic for the sport, no? All young players playing one handed-backhand is good news for our beautiful sport. :p

    Nadal will win Miami

    Phuck Sureshs!! Now I see why Nadal never won this thing. :mad::mad::mad:

    Thiem can win FO and USO

    He will win a Thiem Slam (non calendar 5 slams in a row) soon.

    Time for Nadal to cut HC events down

    But he won't. He is too stubborn to listen to his body. If he can only play the slams going forward, I don't see him hanging around too long. If his injuries prevent him from playing at least half of MS 1000s, I see him announcing his retirement. He still wants to compete so much. I hope he...

    D. Shapovalov has to work a lot more

    He should get a RF avatar.

    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.

    Build the worst player out of former n°1 'parts'

    Nadal has a very good serve. Disagree with most of your picks, including Federer's backhand which has been a weapon all his career.

    Fed 1-7 Djodal in GS-HC matches since 2010.

    I didn't know it was this bad. That being said, this still does not take away anything he did before 2010 and in 2017 at the age of 35. When all is said and done, Federer is still ahead of both Djokovic and Nadal in Grand Slams won. Until his Grand Slam record is broken, he is the greatest...

    Thread title. Ewwww! :sneaky:

    Who had the better forehand: Wawrinka or Fernando Gonzalez?

    Well, even Federer had said that the key to beating Gonzalez was to avoid his forehand and go to his backhand. That should tell you how feared Gonzo's forehand was.

    Ivo Karlovic: ''Djokovic is the best''

    Murray is still a much better player. Ask Kyrgios.

    Can Kyrgios win MAJOR in 2019

    No, winning 7 best of 5 matches is beyond his "talent".

    Tsitsipas Being Rude Again

    He still has more talent in his little finger than Kyrgios does in his entire body.
  25. Backspin1183

    More epic Kyrgios win: Madrid '15 or Acapulco '19

    I'm a big Kyrgios fan but I think he deserved the boos he got from the crowd for his antics.

    How many Wimbledon would Nole have won had grass remains unchanged ?

    That's Federer's first serve? :eek: Too slow. I'd hit return winners all the time against such slow serves.

    Who hits a 'cleaner' forehand Wawrinka or Djokovic?

    Gulbis has the cleanest forehand.

    Federer: The reason I passed Sampras was surface homogenization

    This is Federer saying he, and not Nadal, is the true king of clay. 20 Clay Slams >>> 17 Clay Slams.
