    I think Nadal wins the Slam Race at 22. Fed/Djoker end on 20.

    Unpopular prediction around here no doubt but I’m calling Nadal as the final slam champ ending on 22. “But Vex, Djokovic is coming off 27/28 slam matches won, you’re crazy that he won’t win another.” Maybe. Maybe not. To my eyes his groundstrokes have seriously declined since 2018/2019. His...

    Make a Case for Everything Going Wrong for a Member of the Big 3

    ALTERNATIVE HISTORY - if everything broke the wrong way how low could you get any one Big 3 member’s slam count? For example, Djokovic flirted with losing each of the slams he won in 2021 and just as easily could have gone slamless this year as he won 3 of them. Looking only at these close call...

    Zvev and Med CAN beat Djoker but…

    Djokovic’s matches against Brooksby and Berretini have FORCED him to up his level. His groundstrokes are significantly better than they were at Wimby. If he does go down it should be pretty epic.

    Emergence of a Big 3 Level Player

    For the people complaining about the death of tennis and ripping the NextGen: would you prefer the emergence within the next year of one player on par with the big 3 if it meant that that guy would push out the Old3, go on to dominate the next 15 years and win 35-40 slams?

    Generation: Desperation

    So many post on here have been just TEARING into Shapo, Tsits, Med, Zvev, FAA. Acting like some 22 year old should be able to match one of the GOATs for mental toughness on big points and calling them mugs when they can’t do it. PLEASE people, these dudes are loaded with talent. Tsits alone...

    Sinner is the Most Talented Ball-Striker to Come Along Since Djokovic

    Thiem, Rublev, Tsits (sorta), Zev (on his backhand)... these guys are good ball-strikers. Sinner is on a different level. It’s way to early to say he’ll have XYZ career - he has to put some weight on and improve other parts of his game. But this is unquestionably the most talented kid I’ve...

    It feels weird to have just Djokodal...

    It’s just strange to see Dominic Thiem firmly the world #3. Like Andy is GONE. Fed may soon be gone. He could play another 3 yearsor he could retire in 12 months... I have no idea. Onky Djoker and Rafa truly remain. Just feels strange.

    Commentators during Fed-Djok SF said Fed was no longer doing some of the off court things the elite players do. Thoughts?

    Basically said he’d reduced his commitment to being a top player and had slipped in some facets because of it. That he was more inclined to enjoy the family and let the tennis be whatever it would be based on his reduced commitment and natural skills. can anyone point to exactly what they were...

    It’s crazy but it feels like Federer is out of the slam race

    Seems like a 2 man race right now with Rafa a heavy favorite with a 3 slam lead. Short of Medvedev proving he can maintain or improve his level and going on a tear... more Novak/Rafa slams are coming

    Fed has a chance to secure his legacy Sunday

    I believe Sunday is the most important match Federer will play for the rest of his career. Here’s why: - Nadal is coming. Fed’s win over Rafa Friday was huge because had Rafa proceeded to upset Djoker in the Wimbh final, Rafa would have almost certainly surpassed Fed’s 20 slams. Tho Djoker is...

    Is Fed's decision to play Clay this year a sign of impending retirement?

    Skipped clay season the last 2 years. Hasn't done anything relevant on clay since Stan stomped him in the RG SF years back. Now he's suddenly going to play RG. Is this because: a) He wants to give himself every slam chance possible in his remaining years? b) Privately he knows this is his...

    Wheres the "Djokovic has no weapons" crowd today?

    I shoulda made a list. So many posters claiming that he was done b/c he had lost a little quickness and didn't have the offensive groundstrokes to make up for it. Anyone gonna own up to it after he just won the tourney that rewards offense the most?
