    Trying to classify the Laver Cup. What is it really?

    A cheap knockoff of the Ryder Cup. If it was meant to be serious and a real important tournament, they’d consider Russia part of Team World. Then maybe things would be interesting

    The players actually are trying at the Laver Cup, I can't understand why.

    It’s a team format which is something pretty unique in tennis. Only the ATP Cup and Davis Cup provide a similar feel. You’re not just playing for yourself, your playing for your team/country, so for them it’s a big deal

    Question to Rafa fans: Which is Nadal's most heartbreaking loss?

    I think it’s still heartbreaking because he made those big changes in his game to combat Novak specifically, and he fought so hard but still couldn’t get it over the line. Yes he improved a lot, but he didn’t get the end product he wanted, + 2012 wasn’t a good year for him despite winning RG.

    Who’s 2hb looks least like a 2hb?

    Nalbandian is the only player I've seen where his backhand can genuinely look like a left handed forehand if he took his right hand off it. In terms of how the backhand is used, Safin. 2hbh's have always typically been used for more compactness, allowing you to stay in points more, use better...

    Laver Cup 2021

    Nobody's who are better than Nick Kyrgios currently.

    Laver Cup 2021

    Kyrgios and Sock are stealing livings. John McEnroe is a criminal for continuing to call them up over players like Seb Korda, Christian Garin, Yoshi Nishioka, etc..

    Halep/Cahill split

    This made me laugh because it's such a ridiculous thing to suggest and the fact that it may be right.
  8. Fabresque


    This guy is not likable in any sense of the word. What I will say though, is that the rivalry brewing three-ways between him, Medvedev, and Zverev will be something incredible. Besides Medvedev and Zverev, I fully believe that they all dislike one another off the court. Federer, Nadal, and...

    Toni Nadal believes that Rafael Nadal will be back on tour at Australia in 2022

    Him and Federer are done after 2022. Djokovic done after 2023.

    Alex de Minaur seems to be really struggling at the tail end of summer

    I said it when he went to 3 with Nadal at the ATP Cup, he won't amount to anything...

    djokovic berdych hardcourt h2h

    Berdych is the anti-Djokovic is there was one. Pretty big serve, huge groundstrokes, relies on brutalizing opponents, bad mover, etc… Djokovic capitalized with his good return and his ability to get back almost all of Birdman’s heaters, not to mention he was a massive lock for any point he made...

    Win% on the worst surface for ATGs

    Pretty much this

    What kind of player is Zverev really?

    Defensive baseliner with a big first serve and a weak second serve. He’s in the Andy Murray mold, but given his height and the fact he can probably generate more power than Andy could, he really should be an aggressive baseliner like 2011 Djokovic and just bully people with groundstrokes.

    Medvedev about Big 3 egoism

    We all know this. The Nadal one I think is a lie but Federer for sure only thinks of himself. It’s not even a bad thing, Federer fans are just extremely insecure about it on this thread.

    Question for Djokovic fans...

    I quite like Medvedev so I didn’t mind the loss all that much. Now, if it was Zverev or Tsitsipas, different story.

    Lloyd Harris"Now I think it's time to kick this Big 3 ’and let the younger generation take over”

    Nice! It only took the big 3 to be in wheelchairs for them to actually start beating them.

    All New in '22?

    AO maybe. Wimbledon? No. Medvedev is good on the grass but not good enough to beat Djokovic, and unless Federer somehow returns to at least top 5 form, it’s Novak’s to lose.

    Should Djokovic skip the clay season from this point on in his career?

    If Rafito can’t get back to health and Dom’s mentality in question, he’s almost the favorite to defend his RG title. Why skip lmao.
  19. Fabresque

    All New in '22?

    The most likely outcome would still be Djokovic winning AO and Wimbledon as we haven’t seen anyone really challenge him in those slams. French Open can be a toss-up between Djokovic, Rafa, and Thiem (if healthy and playing well). US Open is anyone’s game if they’re fit for it.

    Rafael Nadal: 'People should remember my legacy, not titles'

    I have so much respect for him, I’ve really started to like him more recently. Absolute class.

    Why is everyone born after 1990 really bad on Grass ??? Any specific reason ???

    Most if not all 90’s born players have their first grass tournament at Queens, Halle, or even Wimbledon. It’s very rare to see them play any futures or challengers on grass. It’s such a small portion of the schedule, most of them have never played on the surface growing up, and it’s so much more...

    What if Medvedev further improves his serve...

    His serve is the last thing he needs improving. He needs to learn how to be more aggressive at times and not just be a defensive grinder. He also needs to develop a net game desperately, it’s his edge over Zverev who still hasn’t developed one in 5 years of being a top 5-10 player.

    Djokovic is going to micro-analyze Medvedev's game to make sure he never loses in a best of 5 again to him

    No he won’t, he knows why he lost, he made that clear enough in his press conference. Also, Medvedev is way better now and will be a way better player than Nishikori. Medvedev actually proves to be a challenge for Novak, Nishikori was genuinely 1-2 blips where he beat Novak, he was never going...

    Djokovic looks spent and used up, we will see if he really is the equal of Federer or Nadal...

    Tennis isn’t all slams. Novak leads every other measurable statistic that has importance for the GOAT mantle. Wimbledon pretty much made him GOAT, people just don’t accept it because he’s not their favorite player or value things like playstyle and elegance more.

    Djokovic looks spent and used up, we will see if he really is the equal of Federer or Nadal...

    “If he is their equal” my guy Novak’s dominated an entire decade of tennis over his greatest rivals and at the age of 34 is winning more slams than Federer did at that age. Really really dumb thread title.
  26. Fabresque

    This could be a blessing in disguise for Djokovic

    There’s probably a big chance of this happening, since he’s always come back from adversity or tough performances to take more slams. I think if he won this match he would’ve shut down like the 2016 season, and knowing his age he wouldn’t be able to make a career comeback.
  27. Fabresque

    Is Djokovic's crowd support here to stay?

    Yes, I made the point earlier that crowds will probably like him more now that they realize he’s 34 and his careers winding down. Think what you will of him, he’s still a legend of the game who’s nearing retirement.

    Please give Daniil credit

    The only thing people are talking about is Djokovic losing, yet nobody seems to mention Medvedev winning. He was phenomenal today, his serves were on point, his groundstroke game annoyed the groundstroke master himself, and he tactically outsmarted Novak. Increasing his first serve %, going...
