    Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter while tripping. Maybe there's some merit in this

    Zverev and Medvedev match not visually aesthetic

    Medvedev is like the tennis version of Nikola Jokic. Tall, awkward, gangly and seemingly unathletic, yet, one of the best in the world at their respective sport

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

    Him or Rios. I'd give Rios the edge because he was #1. Actual accomplishments are more important than talent/peak level

    Roger Federer confirms he’ll miss the 2022 Australian Open. Says 2022 Wimbledon is also in doubt

    If he comes back at all, it will likely be for one tournament. Probably Basel

    The magic within Novak

    I will never understand how anyone can watch him play and come to the conclusion he's boring

    Jokic retaliates after taking an elbow to the ribs from Markieff Morris. Here's my take: Jokic deserves to be suspended for obvious reasons, but so does Morris. This is the result of the NBA letting players get away dirty play for years. If you pulled the same move that Morris did in a pick up...

    If Nadal doesn't make a big comeback next year, what is there to look forward to in 2022?

    I actually believe 2022 will be the most intriguing and wide-open season in years. The gap between Novak and next gen will only narrow as time goes by. It's very possible we get one or two new slam winners next year. Not to mention a possible new number one player. It's not all doom and gloom

    2021 Paris Open F: Djokovic vs Medvedev

    I'm glad I woke up early enough to catch the last two sets. Great win by Djokovic. He's not finished like some would have you believe. Can he reach 40 masters?

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    The most complete version of Djokovic imo. Compared to 2011 and 2021 I think he could win in more ways. In 2011 he mostly won by being physically superior to his opponents and in 2021 it's been his mental game that's been his biggest advantage. During 2015-16 he was close to his mental and...

    Did AJ Green think it was a run play on that interception? That's terrible situational awareness. There's 14 seconds left with no timeouts

    Djovan Nokavic: often awkward aesthetics

    I think it's incredible how he can hit winners or at least force his opponent to hit an extra shot from awkward positions and angles. Personally, I enjoy watching it and it's part of the appeal for me as a fan.

    Which are the lowest moment/point in careers of Big 3.

    I'm surprised no one else had mentioned this yet. Maybe it's not mentioned as much because it's been over a decade and he went on to perhaps have the most important slam victory of his career.

    Imagine Nadal didn't get injured in 2016

    I think it's important to note that they would've faced each other in the semis instead if the final. It changes this dynamic of their potential matchup. Having to beat Nadal in a RG final combined with the pressure of completing the NCYGS and career slam might've been too much for Novak or...

    I agree, but it's a long season and I think they'll adjust. I also expect that they'll make moves at the trade deadline. Whatever happens, I think it's going to be a very interesting year. Both conferences are going to be an absolute dogfight. I'm 33 and I think this is the deepest and most...

    Mind-blowing how the 3 GOATs appeared at the same time... how did that happen?

    I think it's unlikely that any of the big 3 would've reached 20 without the other two around to compete with. I think they all would have passed Pete, but there's no way they would've played this long

    I'm picking Luka Doncic for MVP. Lakers beat the Bucks in the finals. Lebron gets title #5. I don't feel confident about my finals pick, tbh. I would pick the Nets to win it all if Kyrie was playing

    I liked McDermott's decision to go for the win, but not the play call. Why not just go for the endzone? You're 3 yards out, so it's basically a two point conversion attempt

    Djokovic ended Nadal’s 39 match winning streak at Roland Garros...

    The win against 2015 Nadal isn't that impressive to be fair. Stan and maybe even Murray would've also have beaten Nadal if they met. It came down to luck of the draw I still think the 2021 win is impressive. Maybe Nadal wasn't at his best, but it's not like Novak came into the match in epic...

    How do taxes affect Big 3 bank account balances?

    Fed's a billionaire while the other 2 are "merely" worth 9 figures. Novak and Nadal are extremely wealthy, but Fed is likely worth more than them combined. And there's no way any of these guys are paying their full tax obligation. And if they were 42% is very lenient imo

    Should we call Medvedev a one trick pony and a cement specialist?

    That seems to be the consensus here and I'd agree to an extent. I think he's now entering his peak. Let's see how he does next year
