    Which of these three other matches was played at a higher level?

    No agenda this time, I'd like some musings on this one as it's probably not a question you'd asked yourself or someone else before. All's better then the endless ovic talk and stuff, innit?

    Slams+YEC+Olympics.

    Who played the better final?

    Federer conveniently grabbing his maiden HC slam against a tired #81 coming back from a year of injuries and largely spent after two tough five-setters, or Djokovic gloriously obtaining his record-extending ninth AO title in dominant fashion over the hottest player on tour who was coming into...

    Which of these two Slam-winning runs was better, tennis-wise?

    Just a thought I've had. After all, why not?
  16. AnOctorokForDinner

    The third round at this RG will only feature two seed-vs-seed matchups (out of possible 16), both involving 'servebots'

    None in the upper half, regardless of how the yet unfinished matches go. Two in the lower half: Medvedev vs Opelka and Tsitsipas vs Isner. What it tells us?

    Peak ELO

    UTS provides the following figures: Zverev = 2231 Rublev = 2227 Safin = 2218 What it tells us?

    Peak Federer is probably equal or better than peak Djokovic at nearly every top venue :o

    According to my tennis analyst friends, at any rate. AO - possibly equal or even better (07 conquers all) IW - better (peakovic choke set to oldеrer in 15 -> nid) Miami - worse in daytime but equal or better in nighttime MC - possibly equal (bad luck with peak Nadal in 07) Rome - equal (06)...

    So how injured was Nadal at 2009 RG, after all?

    Hasn't been discussed much recently, let's rekindle the old topic and try to move an inch closer to consensus (lol).

    Could Thiem be done as a legit slam contender?

    Considering that he spoke of feeling more complacent after that wretched USO title, this seems like a good idea to ponder. I call for @zagor as a chief proponent of this marvellous possibility.

    Medvedev may end up the greatest non-Big 3 HC'er since Agassi?

    A prominent HC specialist, he's won 3 of the last 6 HC masters and the last YEC. No slam yet, but he's a strong contender, and 'only' needs two for this since nobody other than Fedalovic won more than two HC slams this century. Would be quite amusing if he managed this.

    1975 Connors = greatest vulture of the Open era?

    Won 9 tournaments but 6 of them were on the pitiful Riordan circuit (which was withering as it were and dissolved the following year). The other (2 GP, 1 WCT) titles were of the smaller variety as well (although North Conway had a nice top field with Connors, Nastase, Rosewall and Laver). Lost...

    Why were Kucera and Hrbaty particularly successful against top-ranked opponents?

    Per UTS, they both make OE top 3 among slamless players in win % against top 5 opponents (min sample size = 10), as well as against #1 players (min sample size = 5), and top ten among slamless guys in success vs top 10 players (min sample size = 50), being the least successful among those ten...
