    Zverev and 0-11: The Next Frontier

    Really? It was pretty big news at the time, and Sascha's brother Mischa knocking out then world number 1 Murray.

    Should Rafa retire after winning 2014 AO?

    In 2010, they'd have been saying Djokovic would be lucking to get to 2, let alone 10.

    Do you think Wimbledon 2022 will be the worst slam again?

    The eye test: who impressed you the most among those you watched?

    Early 1996 was vintage Seles mental strength, beating Davenport from CPs down in Sydney, and the famous semi final at the Australian Open against Rubin from behind in the third set. Seles didn't lose her old, pre-stabbing, aura until June-September 1996, when she lost twice to Novotna (French...

    How many Slams should Agassi have won if he kept it together?

    Perhaps by the late 1990s, but he'd have carried on 1995 style for another few years IMO if he had won the 1995 US Open final. Of course, there's no guarantee that his 1998-2006 would have been as good had that 1997 slump not happened and caused him to seriously dedicate. For most of 1995...

    Is AZverev the best player in Open era without a Slam title?

    Miloslav Mecir, by some distance. And when Mecir won 1987 Miami, it was best of 5 sets in every round and a 128 man draw.

    Have you ever wondered about what if Fed won Wimby 19? O_o

    And things look a lot more bleak for Federer now than in 2019. He was having a last hurrah of amazing form during the French Open and Wimbledon in 2019.

    The most likely scenario is that Peng Shuai was arrested for breaking Chinese law and is currently in prison or a safehouse. Other scenarios are possible.

    Peng Shuai: Speak Up Tennis Community

    Seles pulled out of 1991 Wimbledon with a phone call, and then nothing was heard from her for about 4 weeks. Anything could have happened to her, yet most of the resentment seemed to be directed at Monica. One could even say the hostility she faced in the British press at 1992 Wimbledon over...

    Peng Shuai: Speak Up Tennis Community

    Monica Seles (then world number 1) went missing for weeks in 1991, including during the whole of Wimbledon. Oddly, most of the hostility then was directed at Monica herself.

    Players' comments which backfired spectacularly

    Rusedski's comments about Sampras at the 2002 US Open come to mind. Rusedski said that Sampras had lost a step and a half, and he thought Haas would beat Sampras. Sampras responded by saying "Against him (Rusedski), I don't need to be a step and a half quicker". Sampras beat Rusedski, Haas...

    Really? I thought the topic was about how bad the Chinese government was in treating dissidents? I pointed out how the US treats somehow who has embarrassed them and exposed the nonsense propaganda they use when it comes to foreign policy.

    What you should be asking yourself is how this is happening at a time when the US wants a new Cold War against China.

    They aren't ignoring Peng Shuai. A lot of insinuations are being made though, feeding into the US Cold War narrative. How very convenient.
