    it's interesting you bring up this set. I watched the last set of the sinner match this morning since i had to stop watching after the 2nd set when it was live. Imo the sinner last set is an example of when rafa goes "all out" in terms of groundies, but actually the results are mixed...not...

    Drawing from the memory banks, this final reminded me of Sampras/Agassi Wimbledon 1999 in terms of storyline and result. Rafa started the match at the 2-0 5th set 2013 FO SF level in terms of offense.......amazing to watch.

    Last time I remember rafa saying he had to follow his heart was when he decided to enter indian wells directly after winning acapulco in 2013. That was epic decision-making. Vamos.

    Chung Hyeon is the future of Asian Tennis

    This guy is good. Has improved his serve. Has improved his fh dramatically. He used to have a tomic/mannarino fh but now he takes solid cuts on every fh. That’s post nadal generations big problem, few have top tier fhs. Nearly all have bhs better than fhs on absolute levels. Or mid level fhs...

    Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic Wimbledon FINAL

    He is serving well but has his motion changed from 2007 and 2008? Especially the backbend. I get the impression he is much more upright these days and quicker in between the toss and making contact with the ball compared to then.

    Is Nadal currently better on grass than clay??

    Nadal also answers the question in his post-match interview.

    Thanks for the interview. He nails all the questions as usual, he's a natural. :) "You know, Andy Murray today didn't win a Grand Slam, but he's much more better player than a lot of player who won a Grand Slam in the past. That's the true."

    Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Murray Wimbledon Semifinals

    becker, maclagan, lloyd and mcenroe talk about the match: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/13993325.stm I like maclagan's comments about the missed fh.

    Sampras an incredible athlete?

    I remember there being another one of these in the 2001 US open match vs agassi, although I don't remember him being that far off the baseline on this one. I also like one of his points in the 5 setter that he lost vs. becker in Stuttgart. He was doing full sprints back and forth on the...

    Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Murray Wimbledon Semifinals

    we count on him making ue off being aggressive on his fh in our predictions when he plays nadal. He can't let us down. :-P

    really difficult to tell level of play while watching on streams imo unless the stream quality is exceptional, and that rarely happens.

    yeah, murray's went back to the normal ~55% by the end of the match too.

    Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Murray Wimbledon Semifinals

    lol, post of the thread. :) I like them too, like the one he hit when he was serving for the set. Beautiful arc. :) I also like it when guys with two handed backhands start wailing the ball cc, and the arc on nadal's cc fh progressively increases because he has less and less time. There was a...

    Is Nadal currently better on grass than clay??

    The field is still closer to him on grass, so no. But 5 straight wimbledon finals? are you kidding me? :)

    Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic Wimbledon FINAL

    Exciting match with the two best players in the game by far. Djokovic finally played well in a match I was watching at wimbledon. There is a lot at stake here too in terms of ranking points. Nadal's used up a lot of his tank in the last 2 months, and not winning this tournament is going to be a...

    nice summary mustard. Murray made one crucial mistake in that 4-4 game in the 1st set. Murray hit 2 aces down the middle on the 1st 2 serves on the duece side. Nadal saw the 3rd one coming at 30-30 and totally picked another huge down the middle 1st serve from murray. Last year was a...

    Which Men's Final Do You Want (Wimbledon 2011)

    originally I wanted nadal/novak, but novak doesn't look all that great this tournament. His underlying level might still be good and might put up some good performances yet but my guess is that he just isn't that comfortable on grass and that's what we are seeing right now. So now I want to...

    Sampras an incredible athlete?

    that's what sampras did to agassi in that match and in the wimbledon 1999 final with his serve and athleticism. :)

    Rafa is taking injections in his foot to keep playing @ Wimbledon

    really boring, No content. Posts full of exclamation marks. Potentially a teenage fed fan girl from belarus who was permanently damaged after nadal's FO/W sweep last year. ;)
