    Has any player ever won an argument with a chair umpire?

    A million years ago I remember Tin Henman calling an umpire on a mistake, and the guy actually reneged on a decision.

    Federer and Nadal fans should have given more love to Murray

    Retrospectively he was the only one that could have preserved their legacies over Djokovic's. In 2016 he made three finals, won a slam, WTF and YE#1. Since his injury struggles and layoffs started in 2017 Djokovic has won 8 slams. Murray would have been able to snatch enough of those away had he...

    Murray's second Gold, bigger than his second wimbledon?

    There's a case for this. Of course Singles gold by itself is not worth as much as a Wimbledon title. However quite a few players have won 2 wimbledon titles. Quite a few have won more than two. 2 single's golds however stands alone. Federer, Nadal, Djokovic all have their own unique records in...

    I'm happy for Murray, but I'm also sad we didn't get to see a Federer-Murray final

    That was a very special performance from Federer. The best performance of an excellent season. His seasonal form is WAY lower this year, and with his physical condition this tournament I think Murray would have gone through him in straights. (murray's also playing alot better than he was this...

    Murray, if you've lost today, it would be the same.

    Noted that Stepanek caused Djokovic a lot of problems at Wimbledon 2014 as well.

    Was 2009 the closest we have seen to the Grand Slam?

    Don't agree with you here. 2 slams and 2 finals is 2 matches away from the CYGS. 3 slams and a 1st round is 6 matches away from the CYGS.

    Federer clearly annoyed here

    he may not have been annoyed with novak exercising his right to challenge, but rather the stress of getting through a match and then thinking oh it's not over yet

    What was Federer's Most Devastating Loss?

    29 posts into this thread and no one has mentioned Davis Cup 2003 vs Hewitt. Fed himself has said that was by far the most painful loss of his career.

    Is Berdych the biggest underachiever...ever?

    Berdych only has 10 ATP titles -- which is surprisingly little for guy that's been around the top 5 for as long as he has.

    ESPN first take debate over Serena/Sharapova Endorsement $$

    If h2h's are what should determine endorsements, then Nadal should be making more than Federer. Sharapova makes more than Serena in endorsements because of her poster girly looks. This may be indirectly related to race (as in, what is deemed as most attractive is influenced by a...
