    Should Andy Murray retire?

    I've seen happier looking St Bernards than Murray.

    Which generation was weaker, Djokodal's or Federer's?

    The second half of 2016 until Wimbledon 2018 was a dramatic decline in form for Novak.

    Who thinks the ATP World Tour Finals should have stayed in London?

    I haven't been to the WTF when it was elsewhere, but when I went to the O2 Arena in 2014 it was a phenomenal experience. I hope it comes back one day.

    Which generation was weaker, Djokodal's or Federer's?

    When Federer declined there was a talented bunch of youngsters ready to overtake him. When Djokovic declined... the old guys came back and dominated for 18 months.

    Beating Novak at WTF

    He's probably exhausted by November. He's going deep in every tournament he plays all season long, he's not 24 anymore.

    Novak's victories hurt a lot, didn't they?

    I wish Djokovic every success, he's had a phenomenal run that shows no signs of slowing down. Don't think because I'm a Federer fan that I'm in any way biased against Djokovic, I'd be celebrating Federer's 30+ majors and 400+ weeks at number 1 that he would have picked up against this level of...

    Djokovic serve. Equal best ever?

    The Djokovic serve is fantastic. In facts it's phenomenal. The Sampras serve however is the very thing that will keep people talking about Sampras in generations to come. Like McEnroe's volley or Borg's ice cool temperament, the Sampras serve is iconic. For that reason the Djokovic serve for...

    2021 AO Men's Final: [1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs [4] Daniil Medvedev (RUS)

    Hawkeye to break down, a lines person who looks suspiciously like Roger Federer with a moustache to call every Djokovic serve out on match points, Medvedev in 5.

    Is currently Medvedev level hogher than all of Murray's past Aus open campaigns?

    I can't remember Murray in 2013 but he was scary good in the run up to the 2010 AO Final.

    But, but I thought 04-07 was the weak era??

    When Federer's wheels started to fall off in 2008 there was a next gen ready and waiting to overtake him, and the previous generation had long been beaten into retirement by him and his peers. When Djokovic's wheels fell off at the end of 2016... the previous generation dominated the sport for...

    AO 2021 Final: [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [3] Daniil Medvedev

    I'm sure Novak having an abdominal tear could cause me to look competitive against him.

    AO 2021 Final: [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [3] Daniil Medvedev

    Man I had such high hopes after the 1st set. That felt like a really tactical set of tennis between two intelligent players, but Med has completely lost the plot.

    AO 2021 Final: [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [3] Daniil Medvedev

    Has Novak ever played in front of such a supportive crowd before? 2010 Davis Cup final aside obvs.

    Have Nadal and Djokovic had greater competition in slams than Federer?

    Indeed, better than Novak did against a 140 year old Federer with 1 knee and a lower back constructed out of bamboo.

    It is crazy to think Medvedev has never won a French Open Match and only reached 3rd round of Wimbledon

    Oh I don't know, it makes me feel nostalgic. I miss the days when every top player wasn't expected to play equally well across every surface.

    Best of 5 sets should stay forever

    Keep bo5 but reduce it from first to 6 games to first to 4. Bo3 doesn't allow for the swings of momentum that bo5 does. Then when that's done stop making excuses and make women's tennis bo5! I don't give a toss if women aren't as physically strong as men, they're not competing against men...

    2021 AO Women's Final: [22] Jennifer Brady (USA) vs. [3] Naomi Osaka (JPN)

    Well that was disappointing. Hopefully Brady gets over it quickly.

    What Should Djokovic's Strategy Be Against Medvedev?

    I would say stay away from the net. We know Novak can still boss from the baseline and Medvedev is giving us a passing shot clinic right now. I honestly think the best thing to do is just grind, no matter how boring that might be for us at home.

    Novak will LOSE ON SUNDAY

    Lose what, his keys?

    Who will take on the mantle of King of Wimbledon after the usual suspects are gone?

    Mansour Bahrami will win it by accident when showing up to play a senior's exhibition match, before any of the NextNextNext Gen guys win it.

    AO 2021 SF : 4. MEDVEDEV (RUSSIA) VS 6. TSITSIPAS(GREECE)

    Should Djokovic AO Win have asterisk?

    The entire last 12 months is an asterisk.

    Why do you think Andy never reached the heights of Novak, Roger and Nadal

    Mentality is probably it. All great players find themselves in losing positions at times, whether it's because they're playing an opponent who has all the momentum or they're literally facing match points or the prospect of a long comeback in order to win. When Federer finds himself in those...
