    ESPN Sucks “There were several upsets on Day 4 of the combined ATP-WTA event. No. 9 Stefanos Tsitsipas, who lost to Roger Federer in both the Australian Open semifinals and the final in Dubai last weekend, was ousted...

    5:04 So let’s see, the balls legit so far out it hurts. No line judge calls it, umpire doesn’t see it, Hurkacz doesn’t see it, commentator doesn’t see it as signified by his “Well done” Did he touch the ball? It doesn’t look like it but can someone clarify?

    We’re not sugarcoating anything: Nadal got torn to shreds.

    Djokovic was far superior, he clearly exposed Nadal. From the first point he looked on, and never looked back. We are not going to be blaming injury, fan interference, aliens landing on earth and giving Djokovic godlike powers. Djokovic just played way too good and exposed the inferior player...

    The Australian Open YouTube channel is a disgrace

    Why would they have posted a video about PCB’s meltdown? It just paints a bad light onto a normally cool player. What clowns operate the channel? This is inexcusable.

    Can Anderson win a slam in 2019?

    He’s made two slam finals, USO 2017 and Wimbledon 2018. He’s reached a CH of 5 and he’s definitely got the quality to go deep in all the slams, maybe not as much at the French. Can Kandyman break through and win his first slam this year?

    The backwards hat

    Probably a silly question (scratch that, very silly question), but who on tour sports the backwards hat? Add players and we’ll have a list on here. The List: John Isner Karen Khachanov Diego Schwartzman Denis Shapovalov Fernando Verdasco Lucas Pouille Andreas Seppi Adrian Mannarino Malik...

    Let’s be honest

    Can anyone really stop Djokovic next year? Nadal is injured, prolly won’t be a factor next year anywhere except clay and slams. Delpo injured. Federer starting to show his age, playing pretty lousy tennis so far regardless of his performances against Anderson and Thiem. Murray and Wawrinka are...

    Kyrgios in big trouble

    Dropping 11 Spots to World no. 38, he’s the number 3 Aussie behind De Minaur and Millman. With his ranking outside of the Top 32 required to get a seeding in a grand slam, Nick Kyrgios is in real danger of missing out on a seed in his home tournament.

    Most hated players on tour (by fellow players)

    Wayne Odesnik and Lukas Rosol come to mind, not sure about any WTA players because most of them hate each other anyway. Disgust.

    Mikhail Youzhny’s career has ended

    Mikhail Youzhny, named affectionately by his fans “The Colonel” has officially ended his tennis career with a 6-7 6-3 3-6 loss to Roberto Bautista Agut in St. Petersburg. Youzhny reached a career high of number 8 in the world, and was at times the highest ranked Russian. He has the distinction...

    Is Thiem really the “Prince of clay” or does Nadal just have a matchup problem with him?

    Thiem is actually pretty inconsistent on clay, so does Nadal have a matchup problem with him (in BO3) or is he really living up to all the hype?

    2015 Federer > 2017 Federer

    Let’s think about it. Late 2014 Fed - Early 2016 Fed played at a very high level, and the only thing stopping him from winning 4 slams was peak Djokovic, twice at Wimbledon, once at the USO, and once at the Aussie. He played high level tennis, and pretty much made peak Murray his pet. 2017...

    Djokovic defends Serena Williams, disagrees with WTA Sexism Statement Novak Djokovic sympathized with Serena Williams after her meltdown in the 2018 US Open Final, claiming Ramos shouldn’t have pushed her in such a situation. But he also refused to agree with the...

    Del Potro and the crowd are a disgrace

    Time-wasting tactics, bias against the Serbian player, and a disgusting crowd that, year after year, does this ********. The US Open is the worst Grand Slam out of the 4, I’m sorry.

    Djokovic’s drunk act, Part 2

    Is he alright out there??? This doesn’t seem like the Delpo situation where he acted drunk. He legitimately seems off in the second set. Can we expect a retirement?

    Peak Djokovic? Don’t make me laugh

    Being a fan of Nole I personally loved the last tournaments, even RG despite losing to some mug. But this isn’t peak Djokovic, and we probably won’t ever see peak Djokovic, and that’s a fact. Look at his Cincinatti/Toronto form. He played mediocre at Toronto and lost to Tsitsipas in 3 sets...

    It’s inevitably going to happen

    Once Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic bite the dust, we’re going to have to accept the fact that Zverev is going to become the next ATG. Does he deserve it like the three above? No, all he’s going to do is vulture numerous masters and slams when the field is depleted. Seriously, these kids can’t...

    The Realistic Favorites for the US Open

    Top 3 Favorites: Djokovic, Nadal, Federer Djokovic: Now that he’s won Cincinnati it’s hard to not consider him the main favorite for the Open. A hiccup in Toronto doesn’t matter at this point. He should be in fine shape to play five setters after grinding out 3 former Cincy champions and...

    Is Roger Federer the greatest Sportsman of all time?

    People talk a lot about the Greatest Athletes of all time in every sport, and there always seems to be a select few in every sport that people talk about the most. In our sport of tennis, people talk about Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Sampras, and a few others here and there. But out of these 4...

    Federer Fans: Is now the official beginning of the end?

    Today’s final was nothing short of a fantastic Djokovic display. Scintillatingly dispatching Roger in straight sets, was never in doubt in my opinion. As for Roger, hard to take any positives out of today other than his serve. Poor on groundstrokes and most of the time wasn’t clinical enough...

    Novak Djokovic is still a mental machine

    *************, kindly go away, Novak Djokovic is still the best big game player we have in the game. How many times did he look dead and buried against Dimitrov and Raonic, only for him to storm back and win both in three sets? The answer is a lot of times. He is the best big game player on...

    Another spectacular Kyrgios meltdown: Cincinatti 2018 Edition

    This time he goes down a break in the third after splitting the first two sets 6-7 and 7-6 with Juan Martin Del Potro. After getting broken early, he proceeds to tank the return games and tanked any points on his serve where they went more than 5-6 strokes. He received a warning for audible...

    Best English speakers on tour (besides native speakers)

    Obviously Federer and Djokovic are quite good with their English. Also noticed Zverev, Cilic, and Dimitrov speak pretty good English. You could talk to them without knowing who they are and probably wouldn’t notice they’re not a native speaker. Tsitsipas also has quite good English, just heard...
