    Are these tell-tale signs of change of Era? This WTF team Djokodal played team Thievedev 4 times and Djokodal lost all 4.

    I believe aroma is pretty strong and noone can deny what is cooking. Yes, big 3 are being cooked and ready to be eaten by nextgen or newgen. First Nadal and Djokovic both surrendered to Thiem and then both surrendered to Medlad. For me the fact that Djokovic and Nadal didn't win even a single...

    The reason Fed won today

    He served extremely well and hit forehands with venom. Moved well and kept pressure on Djokovic all the time. All this is fine and he has had matches where all this didn't prove to be enough. The real reason he won is :

    Nadal beat Djokovic in same slam for three consecutive years. Djokovic could never do that to either of Fedal.

    F012,13 and 14. Djokovic didn't even for 2 consecutive years.

    Good servers playing match on fast court is like Football teams playing 3 Penalty shoot outs (20 penalties in each) instead of full match.

    I am appalled whenever I see these farcical rituals pretending to be a tennis match. 95% of the time you would know who is going to win particular game as is the case of penalties, most of the time they are going in. In case you have misses one, there is no point in continue watching. The player...

    Theim vs Medvedev, who is deserving no 4 for the year 2019 YTD?

    Guys, who do you think is deserving no 4 for the year, just behind big 3. Each of them have had some amazing wins this year. Made one GS final each where both of them went on to lose Nadal in a tough match. Both of them have one masters each. Lets compare - One GS final for both of them - One...

    Beijing Semi Final Lineup - Next Gen Big 4??

    Look at semi finalists at Beijing? All top 4 seeds in semis and all represent next gen. Would have been good to see MadLad in mix too. But this will do as well. Do we see same line up happening in one of the slams... say in 2 years?

    Which one was a better match? W 19 F or USO 19 F?

    Okay, this question has been heavy on my heart ever since I witnessed that epic 5 hour long drama at USO. So letting it out. General convention would clearly go with W Final. A 38 yr old GOAT contender going at what could have been dream finale of his glittering career against another GOAT...

    Isn't it surprising that Medvedev is playing an ATP 250 (St Petersburg) after such a busy US summers?

    Medvedev barely managed to limp through to his runners-up title at USO after overplaying for month and half or so. I would expected him to take rest and get ready for bigger prizes later in the autumn. But all I see he is playing some lousy 250 starting from today. Is he like Thiem when it comes...

    Between Murray and Nadal, they have lost 8 AO finals in last 9 years without winning one..!!

    About time this anomaly gets corrected. I mean this will be grossly against the law of averages if Nadal loses another AO final. Should not happen and must not happen. Very foundation of statistics will be shaken if that is to happen.

    Better big 4? Federer, Roddick,Hewitt, Safin or Federer, Nadal, Djoko,Murray

    I think this is very close. Though I am tempted to go with first option. Here are my reasons? 1. Federer is common to both so cancels out. 2. None of the Nadal, Djoko, Murray can produce the same level of serve that Roddick did. His forehand was also superior to all of them. If it was nor for...

    Aus Open 2018 QF : [1] Nadal vs [6] Cilic

    Just as ordained be the draw, Nadal meets Cilic for a spot in SF. Cilic had won their very first encounter but since then Cilic has lost to Nadal 5 times on hard. The only Grand Slam they met earlier is AO only in 2011. Nadal had got pretty routine victory. But now Cilic is looking pretty hot...

    Delpo-Berdych or Nick-Tsonga, which going to be better 3rd round match?

    Two interesting match-ups involving 4 power players. All 4 have potential to threaten Fedal hegemony. But recent form suggests all Nadal fans will be rooting for Delpo and all Fed fans for Nick and these choices are not emanating from some very mysterious reasons. Hope we'll get to see two very...

    Aus Open 2018 Round of 32: [1] Nadal vs [28] D. Džumhur

    Nadal Fans& Federer fans respectively-Would you swap your player's 2017 with other player's 2017?

    Okay. This has been little convoluted. As a Nadal fan we lost lot of bragging right with respect to H2H and can't afford to give lot of weightage to that piece of argument at least for the year but at the same time Nadal ended year as the best player of the year and would be officially known as...

    Cumulative stats for last three sets in Rafa-Delpo match

    After set one, Rafa kind of switched something on and played unreal tennis. Something which was promising to be a very enthralling nail-biting match got turned in absolute pummelling. Such was barrage of attack from Rafa that even DelPo's forehand started breaking down. I think this...

    It's predictability that is hurting Nadal most against Fed.

    Federer was giving regular balls at Nadal backhand and was staying withing deuce court because he very well knew only shot Nadal going to play is cross court backhand at good pace. If I remember correctly, Nadal hit only one fully committed back-hand DTL which resulted in a winner (or a forced...
