    The Greatest Match Of Wimbledon?

    For years now all concerned from the media to players go to the rivalry of Roger Federer and Raphael Nadal as the greatest with their 2008 Wimbledon Final being labeled "The Greatest Match!" I just happened upon a tape with misc. clips of TV shows, movies, and the 2019 Wimbledon Final with...

    Players Making Careers defeating Nadal @ Majors

    There are quite a few over the years; becoming more frequent as time goes on! The biggest obviously will always be Soderling knocking Nadal off at the '09 FO changing the course of history and the career of Federer! Without that bit of luck, courage and guile finally being displayed by an...

    Battle of the "Golden Age" Coaches

    Funny to see stars from the 80's & 90's seeming to get a lot of exposure now coaching the HOT player of the day! We've been familiar with Edberg helping Federer while Becker gave confidence to Nole; 2 more Wimbledons won & finals in '14 & '15! Now Chang is trying to make his mark with Kei N. of...

    The GOAT; from Sampras To Federer

    A Re-hash from last summer --- As time goes on, poor Petey will continue to drop in the GOAT discussion unfortunately! I was on the bandwagon just 10 yrs ago giving him the highest accolades even w/o a FO final played! At the time, he was so far ahead of his closest rivals & dwarfed the records...

    Nole Slam Question!

    Djokovic has been acknowledge to have a "Nole Slam" since he holds all 4 majors at this moment after winning French Open this past week over Andy Murray! Does anyone think by taking Wimbledon, he should be credited with another? It all becomes moot if he's able to win both Wimbledon and the USO...

    What player; Male or Female went out on top or the best?

    My choices are with Borg, Sampras, Graf, and Navratilova! Who do you think exited the game with style and grace worth tooting their horns? Anyone that agrees can check it off on poll above! King and Goolagong finished as Wimbledon Champions; '75 & '80 respectively! ;-)

    Who's The Best: GOAT or otherwise?

    I know we keep going over this again and again; breaking it down from a great year to an entre career! I'm going to go with both; a great era of a few years AND GOAT in my opinion? For my fave, I have to go back to my childhood and say Borg fulfils both criteria for me; esp. considering the...

    Your Favorite "Blow Out?"

    I was just musing about the Qatar Final on another thread where Nole put the hammer to Rafa! It was no contest and Nole didn't give Rafa any kind of opening, seemingly looking to punish his longtime rival by pounding him into the court and toying with him with drop-shots, lobs, and attacking the...

    Bad Sport Award Goes To ....

    Who do you put at the top of your list? I instantly think of The Williams'! They're both self-entitled and barely give credit to their opponents; BEGRUDGINGLY! I can still hear a young Venus saying on more than one occasion to the media, "she didn't beat me, I beat myself!" Just watched Serena...

    What Champion Had The Biggest Fall?

    OTTH I put Wilander, McEnroe, and Safin at the top of my list! Wilander was #1 in '88 after winning 3 majors over Lendl, but absolutely disappeared the following season, culminating in a 2nd round USO loss to some unknown player by the name of Pete Sampras! McEnroe had one of the great seasons...

    Monica Seles Stabbing of '93

    It's a stain on our sport; Seles' stabbing in '93! What are people's thoughts after 22 years? I came across this article and had no idea Graf visited Seles in the hospital! I know it's not her fault, but not sure I could have met like that and "made nice!" No one knows what would have happened...

    Best Seasons - Male And Female!

    Before Federer, Nadal, & Djokovic, you could count the truly great seasons on one hand! You had Connors winning 3 of the 4 majors in '74, Rod Laver with his 2 Grand Slams ('62, '69), Borg's '78 winning The Old World Triple (Rome, Paris, Wmbldn), McEnroe who was almost unbeatable in '84, and the...

    Who Owns Each Slam - Trophy Name Change

    Who owns each Major, worth changing the name of the trophy because of their dominance? Who do you think should have the honor and why? (Off the top of my head) Australian Open for the men is owned by Novak "Nole" Djokovic: Not only winning 5 so far, but taking 3 in a row! No one's done that in...
