    Match Stats/Report - del Potro vs Federer, Indian Wells final, 2018

    What do you mean by this comment? This was not a classic? You don’t care for Wasps’ choice of matches? I can’t tell bec you also say how much you admire Fed and Delpo. So I cannot figure out what you are saying. Thanks

    Match Stats/Report - Kuerten vs Arazi, Monte Carlo final, 2001

    in other matches you have noted that the the world/famous Kuerten BH was not so effective and he hit more winners off the FH, is my memory correct? I note also that 31 winners (excluding service) in 27 games is rather extraordinary on clay. I remember we discussed the Muster 1997 RG match...

    None of the Big 3 will ever win another Slam.

    Grass you may have a point. There are a few who I think will eventually get there but healthy Djokovic seems the clear favorite for Wimbledon 2022. But thinking in terms of grass possible contenders I am too tired at the moment. Clay is up for grabs. Lots of players could win RG 2022 In...

    Is Thiem going to come back to be a contender at all

    I hope he is a good guy. I really admire his play. however: During 2020 pandemic Djokovic put together a decent/not lavish program to get some money to the players ranked 101-500. Nole mostly lobbied (successfully) for the Slams (ITF) to give the great bulk of this subsidy, But he also set...

    Think about Federer—a decade after his peak ended—taking the world #1 to school

    during that period,1968-70, Richard was 39-41 and Rocket 29-32 at the various times they played 5-set matches. They played six five setters. Laver won 4 of 6 five-set matches: Laver wins ‘68 RG SF: 6-3,6-2,6-1. Laver wins ‘68 French Pro SF: 8-6, 6-2, 6-3 Laver wins ‘69 Baltimore: 6-3, 3-6...

    Sinner: "Tiafoe Went Too Far"

    Tiafoe reminds me of Borotra or a Borotra wanna-be. I doubt he will rise to the same level of phenomenal popularity and championship success, but he can give it a try. there are quite a few top tennis players in history who were showmen.

    Sinner: "Tiafoe Went Too Far"

    Some persons care. Integrity is not quite dead yet. injuries are part of the game. I don’t know of Nadal or Djokovic faking injuries as such but Nadal has exaggerated injuries which is not classy. I know there is suspicion about Nadal and Performance Enhancing Substances and techniques but...

    Sinner: "Tiafoe Went Too Far"

    I will not criticize Novak, and any criticism was unwarranted. If it was a kind of gamesmanship - if - then he doesn’t get the Edberg award. Gamesmanship is part of the game. But Tsitsipas was CHEATING straight up. For which he can soon be forgiven if he does not do it again. Showmanship...

    Sinner: "Tiafoe Went Too Far"

    He Definitively DID NOT “Intentionally” hit Sinner - they were were both on top of the net w/in a few feet of each other. Tiafoe hit a reaction volley that nearly hit Sinner and one that did hit Sinner (near the stomach). On the second of these Sinner would have hit Tiafoe if the latter hadn’t...
