    GS winner coming back from 0-2 TWICE?

    Djokovic was down 0-2 twice in this tournament. Against Musetti and in final against Tsitsipas. He came back and won the match in both cases. When is the last time it happened? Federer in 2009 was down 0-2 against Haas but 1-2 against Delpotro. I know Gaudio came back from 0-2 in the 2004...

    ZERO french player (of 50) in 3rd Round of ATP/WTA French Open

    It's definitely the first time it happens in the history of the FO. But I read it's first time in the Open Era, too. They were 21 in the qualifying draws and 29 in the main draws (total of 50 chances). It's very embarrassing for the tournament if you ask me. Nations like Italy, Spain and...

    Frequency of scores in a set, ranking

    I don't have specific stats, but if you had to rank the 7 possible scores for a "normal" set (6-0, 6-1, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5, 7-6) what would it be? In singles matches only, and official tournaments (250, 500, 1000, Slams) IMO, 1) 6-4 2) 6-3 3) 6-2 4) 7-6 5) 6-1 6) 7-5 7) 6-0 I think 1 break/set...

    Insane 44 shot rally (Rotterdam)

    I've seen a lot of last shots like this one and a lot of long rally... But both combined at the same time and this long? Huge intensity during the whole point and amazing defense in the last 3 shots. Such an incredible last shot after such a long rally, that's huge. You need to watch and...

    ATP cup points - questions

    With the new ranking sytem extended to March, I assume the players won't lose any points? Does it also apply to the ATP cup? Djokovic won all his matches last year and nearly 750 points. This year (only 4 matches against 6 last year) the players can only get (maximum) 500 points. I conclude his...

    Halep vs Swiatek & Anisimova 2019/2020 funny stat

    The WTA logic in a nutshell. 2019 Halep beats Swiatek 61 60 in 40 minutes (one of the shortest WTA match I've ever seen) and then loses 62 64 against Anisimova 2020 (same tournament) Halep beats Anisimova 60 61 and then loses 61 62 against Swiatek. So hilarious. (even more than Halep vs...

    French players and chocking: they're breaking every records in this FO!

    I've heard about the French's players weak mentals and choking for a long time... well they aren't disappointing in this French Open! - Gasquet was up 5-2 + serve in the first set against RBA. Lost his serve at 5-2 AND at 5-4, lost the 1st set in tie break and got destroyed 76 62 61. - Mayot...

    Federer/Ferrer/Youzhny, Djokovic/Monfils, anyone did better??

    The H2H between these 3 is 17-0. Federer beat Youzhny and Ferrer 17 times and never lost. Djokovic/Monfils in Dubai was the 17th one. Has someone ever beaten someone else 18 times (or more) in a row? Maybe before Federer-Nadal-Djokovic's era?

    Don't remember a Top-10 losing in a GS after serving for the match 2x in a row

    (Speaking about Tsitsipas/Coric's match) Maybe it already happened in the history of tennis but I don't remember it. I was rooting hard for Coric, the match was qzite intense during the first 3 sets but I started losing hope after Tsitsipas won the 3rd. When there was 5-1 for Tsitsipas in the...

    Mladenovic's big choke

    That was so painful to watch. Mladenovic was winning 6-1 5-1 40-0 against Gratcheva. She lost the match 1-6 7-6 6-0. She missed 4 MP. I have seen a lot of chokes in the WTA over the years, but this one is definitely in my top-10.

    So how will the points / ranking system work?

    I see that more and more tournaments are getting cancelled. Washington, Basel, Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghaï, and probably more to come. What happens if tennis is back in late August (as planned now)? Will Medvedev, Zverev,... lose their 1000, 600... points in Shanghaï? Will Federer and Djokovic lose...

    Nadal/Djokovic in Rome, who did better?

    I was watching old matches on a foreign channel and I realized Nadal and Djokovic faced EIGHT times in Rome. 8 times in 13 years. Nadal won in 2007, 2009, 2012, 2018 and 2019. Djokovic won in 2011, 2014 and 2016. Have 2 players ever played 9 times against each other in the same tournament...

    Erase the entire season (including AO) and start over in 2021?

    I apologize if it's already been discussed, but I don't see it on the main page, so here we go... This theory comes from Gerard Tsobanian, from the Madrid Open. He says the ATP/WTA will need to determine a deadline and decide to skip the entire season. No tennis in 2020. But it also includes...

    What's the status of WTA 125s ? Wta Titles or Challengers?

    If someone here has good knowledges regarding the WTA tour, can you enlighten me please? This category of tournaments started in 2012. For 2020, we have Newport, Indian-Wells, Zapopan, Anning, Bol, Bastad, Karlsruhe, New-Haven, varsovie, Taipei, Houston and Limoges. The winner gets 160 WTA...

    Who has the best serve?

    Among the current tennis players, who has the best serve in your opinion? Not necesseraly the fastest one, but the most effective one (based on all the criteria you want) If you were a pro tennis player and one of these men could lend his serve to you, who would it be? (If you choose...

    Does anyone remember this?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/23/sports/tennis/24tennis.html Longest match ever for the WTA. According to Wiki, the longest women's match (by time) took place at a tournament in Richmond, Virginia, in 1984, when Vicky Nelson took 6 hours, 31 minutes to defeat Jean Hepner 6–4, 7–6(11). The...

    What a weak start of season for Tsitsipas and Medvedev

    Among the 4 players who could potentially compete with the Big-3 this year, I thought Tsitsipas and Medvedev were above Thiem and Zverev, but it seems like the opposite is happening. Tsitsipas lost 2 of his 3 matches at the ATP cup. Only 1 win in Australia (w.o. in 2nd round) and straight sets...

    Does anyone watch the South America tournaments on clay?

    Talking about Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Sao Paulo (and other "little" clay tournaments like Houston, Marrakesh, Budapest, Estoril, Geneva, Munich, Lyon,...) It amazes me how we ALWAYS see the same players in these tournaments. Schwartzman, DelBonis, Dellien, Cuevas...

    The Next Gen having such weak results

    The outcome is quite terrible. Shapopalov: final in Paris and some good matches for the ATP cup. But then 3L in a row against Humbert, Fucsovics and now humiliated by his compatriot Pospisil. Coric: disaster. Only 1 victory in his last 10 tournaments (ironically it was again Thiem) 8 defeats...

    Djokovic already (almost) qualified for the ATP finals

    So With the 670 points of the ATP Cup and now 2,000 points, he already totals 2,670 points. After only 1 month, he is basically qualified for the ATP finals in London. In comparison, Berrettini (the 8th ticket for the ATP finals last year) had exactly 2,670 points when he qualified for London...

    Could Kenin have more stability than the recent GS winners?

    One of the biggest problems with the WTA is that GS winners rarely confirm. They disappear for months and some can't even win a match. Muguruza is a good example. After she won the FO in 2016, she has terrible results until the end of the year (couldn't reach another SF). Another good example...

    I want Zverev or Wawrinka against Djokovic in final.

    With an injured and exhausted Federer against Djokovic at the top of his form in his best tournament, I don't see much suspense for this match. I think it's 95-5 at this point. Another Djokodal final would be super boring too. Chances would be around 85-15 for Djokovic. That's why I hope we...

    Bad move for Thiem

    I'm sure I am not the only one thinking he wasn't giving his 100% today. Anyway we can all agree he was playing much better in his first 2 matches. I don't think it's necesseraly a good thing. Sure he was already qualified for the SF, no matter what. But I don't think it benefits him at all. -...

    Most M1000 finals have been dull this year

    The GS finals were great in general, especially Wimbledon and USO, but the M1000 finals were meh, for most of them. - Miami, Isner was injured, Federer won in straight sets. No suspense. - Monte Carlo, no offense to Lajovic and Fognini who are great players, but this match would have been more...

    De Minaur

    He is only 20 years old and I already find him impressive. His matches against Murray, Coric and Bautista in Zuhai were all incredible. He's already won 3 titles (in 3 finals) this year and now he's reached his first atp500 final. He still needs to be better in the bigger tourmanents and he...

    Is Serena going to Shenzhen?

    The Race to the WTA Finals in Shenzhen is very intense this year. Barty, Pliskova, Halep and Andreescu are already qualified, Osaka and Kvitova are pretty safe too. There will be a huge contest for the last 2 places, but the question is, Is Serena going? The answer could change everything for...

    Djokovic/Federer, best match ever?

    I am still blown away by this match, 2 weeks later. I don't know if this was the best tennis match ever, but for me I definitely put it in the top-3. - Happened in a Grand Slam and the most prestigious one, IMO. For a lot of players I think Wimbledon is the most prestigious tournament. -...

    ATP1000 Federer/Nadal/Djokovic Statistic

    I'm always impressed by the statistics for these 3 players. I thought this one is incredible, and hilarious at the same time. Federer has played 50 Masters1000 finals in his career. Tomorrow, Nadal will play his 50th final in this category, and Djokovic will play his 49th final. In Madrid...

    OT: Is it a mixed (ATP/WTA) or a men's tennis board?

    Hi. I'm a big tennis fan, I registered a few weeks ago here and finally decided to post something. I'm still not very familiar with the guidelines, so I apologize if my first thread is a bit off topic. But I have a question. I notice this is mainly all about ATP. I hardly see any threads about...
