    Great victory for the 18 yr old Kid. Lot of heart to defeat World #3. However, this basically ENSURES Daniil Medvedev gets to the Final of the UsOpen! Only Titspas could have potentially stopped Medvedev. No one else in the bottom half has much of chance. Golden opportunity for the...

    Novak has BROKEN the Next Gen

    First Medvedev in AO 2021 F Then Tsitsipas in F.O 2021 F Shapo in Wimb 2021 SF Berrettinni in Wimb 2021 F These were the biggest hopes, but they all have lost badly to Novak in slams. Sad to see Shapo crying when he left the court. This one will hurt him for a very long time. Matteo also...

    Medvedev/Hurkacz were NOT given an Option to play the same day

    The decision to play NEXT Day was Forced on them. Please see this video in Russian - those who know the language can translate: This confirms the EVIL plan of the Organizers. It ended up spectacularly backfiring. Medvedev was REMOVED but HH actually upset Federer. Egg on the face of...

    Wimbledon Organizers Plan Worked

    Medvedev is SCREWED precisely as they wanted and planned. The RAIN delay is forecasted to be at least 90 mins to 2 hours. The court 2 will probably NOT have any more play today. So the #2 seed plays for 2 consecutive days, assuming he wins. Or he could lose as well in 5 sets. Advantage...

    Can Djokovic emulate Fed's 2017 Wimbledon run

    Federer won Wimbledon 2017 WITHOUT losing a set. That is one of the hardest things to do on grass court. Only Borg did it before Federer. Can Novak do that this year? It's the ONLY thing missing from his resume i.e winning a slam without dropping a set. That would also make Novak the 3rd...

    Bold Prediction: Fed and Nadal will finish at 20 slams

    Watching this RG I feel Fedal are DONE winning slams Fed: Couldn't even play 4 matches at RG. He won't win Wimbledon 2021. And next year at 41 - he won't get to the 2nd week of any slam. Nadal: Losing RG to Novak was the last bastion. Titspas almost beat Novak. Next year Ttspas will be...

    Was RG 2021 Final Result Good for Tennis?

    Big 3 are amazing and Novak is the GOAT. But perhaps a new champion would have rejuvenated the sport. Given us something new to talk about. I would have said the same thing if Nadal had WON. I think too much of a good thing with the Big 3 That being said, some would want the Big 3...

    NEVER pick against a Big 3 in a Slam Final: Tsitsipas is NOT going to Win

    We hype up the Big 3 opposition in Slams. But EVERY SINGLE time we are proven to be WRONG. Big 3 ALWAYS prevail. Below are some examples: Thiem in AO 2020 Final : Should have WON. But CRUMBLED with the pressure vs Novak. Medvedev AO 2021 Final: Oddsmaker favorite. Even betting favorite. Did...

    Nadal's serve cost him his 21st GS title

    As mentioned before Nadal's serving has been awful in 2021 clay season: Career high double faults per set: this F.O 2021 and much of the clay swing. 8 double faults vs Novak - a record for Nadal in any ATP match. Lower Avg mph on 1st serve. Lower % won on 1st serve. (59% 1st serve pts won...

    Which losing Quarter Finalist played better?

    Who was more impressive among Diego and Matteo? I will go with Matteo - clutch serving, lot of forehand winners. BIG game. Diego also played well. But his serve was garbage, so was the net play and he totally collapsed in set 4.

    Great Opportunity for Tsitsipas in F.O 2021

    Most of the next/current gen have had the misfortune of having to go through ALL of the big 3 to win their maiden slam. Even if they manage to beat one (or 2) of the big 3- they cannot beat the other. Most recently it's been Thiem who's managed to beat Novak but succumb to Nadal at F.O twice...
