    Higher level?

    I picked what is considered prime for both at both events. Edit: Supposed to Nadal at USO versus Djokovic at Wimbledon.

    Better year 2008 or 2015?

    Which year was stronger? The tour and touch on individual opponents the number 1 faced. Taking a break for pitting Fed fans against Djokovic fans for a bit.

    First mention of the Big 4

    34:40 I do tell a lie, the first time I heard this mid 00's quartlet mentioned as the Big 4 was back at the AO of the same year. Anyone remember any other historic Big 4 mentions? Did Brad Gilbert coin the phrase or are there even early references to a group of four players being a "Big 4"...

    Andy Roddick calls 2015 Federer post prime *Tennis world in shock*

    "...It's a hard ask to ask Roger to stay in the prime of his career for 15 years you know...the post prime version of Roger is still good enough to win Grand Slams but you start going 13, 14, 15, 16 as far as years you're seeing prime Novak..." :unsure::whistle:

    Limit the number of aces in a game?

    I've thought about it and this is the only way to save tennis. After the atrocious 1994 Wimbledon final between Ivanisevic and Sampras (two glorified serve-bots who could only manage one rally over 6 shots), the tennis establishment took note and slowly transitioned to make the game more...

    If Federer had ugly game instead of pretty game he would be considered a more accomplished Ferrer.

    Discuss. I think this actually a compliment, as everyone knows Federer is just a poor mans Santoro.

    Fedr #1 again again

  24. NatF


    No more of this horse crap. "Well Fed had an extra days rest and is the establishment favourite since 2004." That game cannot be played anymore. This is for all the marbles. Let's not forget that Federer has a 12 time slam winner in his half of the draw. NO MORE EXCUSES. I don't want to hear...

    Peak, Old, Baby, NAME - it doesn't matter, only form matters

    * emphasis on name was intentional I'll begin by saying that I do believe those factors mentioned in the thread title matter, but only in terms of being factors that affect form - they do not by themselves dictate the form of a player in a year, tournament or especially match. This was partly...

    Rest in peace Pancho Segura

    BBC just broke the news during the WTF final. A legend who sadly few will have ever seen or even heard of. There's a lot of fighting on here but hopefully we can come together to celebrate the life and career of Pancho.
