    The real reason why Medvedev won, and why Djoko looked like that

    There might be yet another reason why Med prevailed. Maybe they improved the drug testing process and finally caught Numero Uno out? Then the powers that be were not willing to shine the light on the transgression (because something like this coming out not only blights the offender - the entire...

    Who is more talented: Murray or Safin?

    Ah, but would he beat Johansson after 'partying' the night before with three attractive Murrayonettes?

    Eh, Safin's USO came in 2000? It's the AO he got in that 2004-2021 time span.

    Tennis is in trouble

    This has already been done (only not in the US - in Germany, and not another Federer - a better Federer). The result was Alex Zverev, "a freak of nature".

    "massive back of her chin... face rectangular..." You sure you are not confusing your babes? Sounds like you are talking about Bouchard...

    That tennis ball at the end of the OP vid - looks like it says "US Open" on it? Is the video trying to tell us something, e.g. "memento the linesperson"?

    Which player would win a woody tournament?

    Yeah I was gonna say Stepanek, too, when I saw the thread title. Then I started reading the thread... "Oh, you mean wooden rackets" :)

    Who is the real Alpha Male in the Tennis world ? ( not afraid of anyone .... )

    "Roots" as in the down-under meaning of the word? Noice.

    Who is the real Alpha Male in the Tennis world ? ( not afraid of anyone .... )

    Real alpha males don't engage in a war of words - spoiled brats do. There was a thread already about real alpha males, and all real contenders (Ivan, Pete, Marat) were mentioned there.

    Federer can win 21 at W

    What do you guys think Borg's chances would have been in those USO finals, had he not been contractually obligated to play with a racket different from his usual one? Methinks that contributed bigly to his bad luck at USO...

    Bad take from Bleacher Report

    Wow according to that article Rafa reached Wimby finals in 2005 ("Reasons 2 and 3"). Much credible.

    Incontrovertible evidence that Raphael is the GOAT.

    Yeah I agree about "faithful" translations, that's kinda what I was trying to say - the "faithful" translations don't work, while when a great poet well versed in the language takes an "artistic license", you are not reading the original, but rather the work of the said 'great poet'. Great...

    Incontrovertible evidence that Raphael is the GOAT.

    I kinda get all of your recommendations, but poets? Are you fluent in both Italian and Russian? Cause, if you are reading poetry in translation, you are not fully appreciating what the author wrote, no? The translator has to be really good (and there are some) - not just a poet in their own...

    LeBron James vs Roger Federer: Who's the more famous athlete?

    I suspect Bball fans are much more likely to wear the attire their idol peddles, while many tennis fans can think for themselves and can be fans of the game and specific players, without wasting ridiculous amounts on whatever Nike or Uniqlo geniuses decide to flog via tennis stars. Has anybody...

    Murray or Roddick?

    Ah, but what's your reasoning behind the choice?

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

    I may be mis-remembering this, but I thought, right after the match, there was some talk that Fed had a niggle with his foot, or his ankle, or something? Or was it just the Fed apologists? For sure he was injured while playing Nalby at the Masters Cup later that year...

    Has there ever been a both-handed(is it even a word?!) tennis pro?

    Did a quick search on "ambidexterous" and "WTA" , Googs came back with "Evgenia Kulikovskaya". Interestingly enough, one article brought up by the search (from Nov 2018) said that Shapo is ambidexterous:

    Has there ever been a both-handed(is it even a word?!) tennis pro?

    I think on WTA side there may have been an ambidexterous player from Ukraine some time back. Maybe one of Alona and Katerina Bondarenko?

    OP, thanks for creating this thread. I am not sure why only the "Living" filmmakers , is it kinda like active players vs. retired ones? Anyway, is there a thread on the filmmakers who are no longer with us? Thanks!
