    Alcaraz: "My game is similar to Federer"

    https://www.atptour.com/en/news/alcaraz-models-aggressive-style-on-federer Alcaraz thinks his game is similar to Federer and recognizes his serve needs improvement. He is indeed exciting! Hope he hires a coach that can improve his serve and doesn't turn him in to another high percentage grinder.

    Genuine question: What is your problem with Nick?

    People often criticize him for being candid, and then he has a cathartic moment where he dares to not be a sheep and criticize Djokovic, and people still hate him for it. It's fine if you don't like Kyrgios, nobody is making anyone like him, you are free to dislike anyone you want. Other players...

    Why is Rublev so bad at the majors?

    As the title suggests...Why is he so exceptional in 500 events but always sucks at the slams? Is it fitness? confidence? movement? or is he only good in BO3's?

    The Hypocrisy!

    When Federer was 34, everyone was shocked at him being able to compete with the top dogs on faster courts with an efficient/aggressive style of play..............The same posters now claim Nadal will be impossible to outlast on the most physically demanding surface at the same age with a style...

    Endurance/Stamina problems after 1st set

    I get too tired too quick and this has been a major problem me for the past few months or so when playing tennis. I start fine and then my technique, anticipation, footwork goes out the window when i'm fighting fatigue, exhaustion. Strangely i can still run fast but my muscles feel too tired to...

    2019 has been the worst year for Fed fans

    The most pathetic year for Fed fans....Losing wimbledon after holding championship points and both Djokovic and Nadal winning two majors each....Also, STILL no sign of any threat to Djokovic and Nadal in slams from anyone besides a 38 year old Fed.

    How can everything always goes Nadal's way?

    Federer needs to slog through Nadal and Djokovic and still ends up getting match points to still lose the match.... Nadal gets to face nobodies to win this USO and gets to avoid Djokovic at both FO and USO.... It's amazing...I was micking their jinx threads but it looks like Pantera and other...

    How is Dominic Theim # 4 in the world?

    How is this guy still # 4 in the world after accomplishing nothing significant on any surface other than clay??? He is good only on one surface and is still Nadal's puppet there...Just goes to show how pathetic the tennis field is right now outside the 34 to 38 year old top three players. :rolleyes:

    6-3 6-0 Nadal vs Mdevedev

    The scoreline from Rogers Cup final. Does anyone really think Medvedev stands a chance against Nadal? I saw the highlights and he basically had no answers to anything Nadal was throwing at him. He has no weapons that can hurt Nadal either except maybe his serve. It's going to be washout...

    Nadal lucky due to lost era

    I think Nadal, Murray and Djokovic lucked out to some extent because they never had young players consistently challenging them. Federer had Nadal Djokovic and Murray...These guys have Dimitrov, Nishikori and Raonic. It's amazing how there isn't a single player from this useless generation that...

    How can the #2 player serve this bad

    # 2 ranked player who is supposedly the biggest rival to Djokovic serving 50% in a slam final. Really disappointing from Murray.

    Who will be tougher in the final?

    I know Djokovic is the overwhelming favorite in the final but who will give a tougher match between Raonic and Murray? Personally I'd like to see how the new and improved Raonic does with his big serve and power hitting against Djokovic. I think Raonic has an outside chance as his game doesn't...

    French Open::: The men are separated from the boys!

    Now that Djokovic has routinely put away Nadal, the men have been separated from the boys. Potentially a final between Wawrinka & Djokovic...unless we have a upset. I'm happy!

    Djokovic said he was feeling fatigued

    Something wrong with him? He said he wasn't feeling normal and fatigued after 2-1/2 sets in his post match interview...Anyone have info on this? That's gonna make Ralph the hands down favorite if he is indeed not fully fit.

    Mental Games: Nadal Camp

    World Tour Finals vs Olympics Gold

    Majority posters would agree that WTF is somewhere between a major and a MS1000 i.e. lower than a major and higher than a MS1000. It seems people are undecided when it comes to comparing it with Olympics gold. Let's take a look at the list of Olympic Gold winners, 1896 Athens  John Pius...

    Where does WTF stand?

    To sensible posters it would seem WTF would be somewhere below a major and higher than MS1000 and Olympics...But some folks think WTF is merely an exhibition and the ATP awards 1500 points for a glorified exhibition. So I've got a poll to see how people rank the WTF here. Also here is...

    Toni Nadal furious with ATP:"Rafael didn't win Masters because of them!"

    The Master of the end of the year has been always played on hard court: “The surface can’t be changed because ATP has so decided. I think that it’s not fair to play always on the same surface simply because tennis is also played on court and grass. Probably because of ATP, Rafael has never won...
