    Connors chances at a French Open?

    Jimmy Connors skipped the French Open for a notable part of his career 74-79. Arguable during his best clay court playing years due to WTT. Connors barely stepped foot on the red dirt in this time period due to the lack of need to due to his professional commitments and would mostly focus...

    Guillermo Coria: Best Returner

    We always hear the talk about Andre Agassi, but what I just learned today was all time Guillermo Coria leads the whole sport in percentage of return games won by a good 2 percent and 1st serve points won. Considering those are two great indicating of return of serve it is amazing how easily...

    ATP: Number 1 ranking

    So if Nadal wins tomorrow he will be the holder of 3 of the last 4 majors. However he will be ranked 2 still. So most complain about the WTA and the #1 not holding a major title or having one so here is where my question comes into place and note it's not meant to attack either player so leave...

    Looking back at 1996 French Open...

    Anyone notice it may consist of the weakest four semifinalists on clay in terms of natural clay court ability, but anyone notice what they have in common. Huge serves. So what was it that year that made Marc Rosset, Michael Stich and Pete Sampras make it to the semifinals in France? This is no...

    It's that time again..who has the hardest draw?

    So again out of the big 4 who has it the worst? I'm kind of edging Murray here. His third round prospects are Cilic or Ljubicic, two big serving guys who can kill the ball. Although he is 5-1 against Cilic most of their matches have been tight and I think we all remember that beatdown Cilic gave...

    How the Americans can win the Davis Cup...

    Okay assuming America beats Chile, seems highly likely, but this could be a horrible upset they look to a match against Spain. Requiring I am reading correctly they have the home court for that match. Key to winning, how about an old school fast grass court. I am talking something of the speed...

    Harrison v. Ljubicic

    Just got back from classes. The kid is taking it to Ljubicic he just won a set. Not to mention he isn't even playing his best, his game is kind of shaky at the moment and he has been nervous at the net but he is taking it hard to Ljubicic. Go Harrison!

    The Roddick Service Motion..

    You know so I always noticed Roddick's service motion was different than a lot of other pros, but now I'm wondering is there anyone else who seems to have a similar motion or am I crazy? I've been searching all over for service motion clips and the closest I seem to have is Jo Willy..going to...

    Donald Young heading back in the top 100....

    He is turning 21 soon....and he looks like he is finding his way back into the top 100. One more win at Atlanta will guarantee it but depending on how the few guys around him do now he might just be there as it is. He's currently sitting at 105 but he might just finally get back there...

    Querrey v. Malisse

    Why do we not have a thread on this? Its actually an entertaining match unlike the pusher festival of Murray v. Simon. Though Simon actually is ATTACKING. I hope Sam gets through would like to see how Murray reacts to someone who plays a whole lot of offense. Though Malisse is playing damn good.

    The Serve and Volley Stat

    Anyone notice them bringing it up a ton in Roddick and it was even on the end match stat thing on tv with the percentage of serve and volley points. Found it to be quite interesting, is Wimbledon attempting to force some players to try to go to the net. I find the stat to be a bit weird though...

    Goran, Ancic, Karlovic, Cilic, Berdych..all huge serves...all from east Europe. Now lets add in Bozoljac and Dodig. Is there something going on over there? Are they tapping into the serving technique that has commonly been dubbed an American thing.
