    Why Andy Murray failed to become an ATG

    He is an ATG in my opinion. In any other era besides big 3 he wins 6-8 slams at least. Also completely disagree with your “champions play well even when they’re not their best” take. Murray’s game was entirely based around his speed and ability to chase balls and wear opponents down. Can’t...

    It is official: Thiem best surface is Hard Court

    He has more results on HC because there’s more tournaments on HC. If you look at his win percentage, I’d suspect that it’d be higher overall on clay.

    who do you think best bet to taking out novak djokovic in 2020 us open ?

    It’s gotta be Thiem. He seems to have taken no time off during this whole ordeal and has been playing exhos like crazy. It’s completely up in the air what form the other guys will be in.

    Wimbledon. Peak Sampras v Peak Federer. Who would win?

    Modern grass Fed wins handily. On 90s grass it’d basically be a servebot contest so 50/50 there but I’d give the slight edge to Sampras.

    Is Federer-Roddick the most one sided rivalry in history?

    Fed-Roddick takes the cake for me because Roddick is a much higher calibre player than the other players in these one-sided rivalries. Roddick would have quite a few more grand slams if Federer hadn’t come into the picture.

    20-20-20. Would you take it?

    Rafa fan so I’m tempted to say no because he has the largest current chance of going past 20, but it would be hilarious if it ended at 20 a piece because the GOAT debate would go on for eternity.

    Which tournament is the least attractive in ATP TOUR 500?

    Hamburg and Rio seem to get the worst calibre of players currently. Vienna probably after that.

    Does Robredo have the "record" for most Grand Slam match wins without ever reaching a Grand Slam final

    Had Berdych not had his one Wimby final he’d be the absolute king of this category - 146. Ferrer similarly impressive at 145.

    Why is Isner solid from baseline and Karlovic is awful?

    Karlovic is from a different gen of players. He’s much better at the net than Isner.

    Shapo's a comin

    He has basically the opposite problem to most from his gen, who lack weapons and creativity on court. He has weapons and game for days, he is just inconsistent. There's two paths he could take, he could never quite be able to reign things in and end up a Tsonga-like player, or it could all start...

    The crowd was obnoxiously pro Djokovic, they were screaming and even playing a trumpet every time Shapo served.

    So for everyone who's been hating on ATP Cup...

    The tournament has been great, the concern is really just that having two of these tournaments eats into players’ already small off season.

    Hewitt's tactics for Saturday's ATP Cup Semifinal

    I trust Nick to beat RBA more than Millman, and while Nick would have a decent chance against Rafa he’d by no means be the favorite. I think the way they set it up maximizes their chances.

    Peak Murray vs peak Wawrinka. Higher level of play?

    Wawrinka of course has the better highlight real, but true peak Murray is devastatingly effective. Look at Olympics 2012 F, Wimbledon 2013 F, and the end of the 2016 season.

    Nick Kyrgios wins Sportsmanship Award

    He did actually win an anti-sportsmanship award recently. “Top 10 bad guys in sport” or something.

    Murray vs Courier

    Murray by quite a large margin. One slam and a few more weeks at number 1 do not make up for trailing in every other stat. Murray was overall a much more dominant player, and it goes without saying that his competition was incredibly strong.

    Major thing we are forgetting that happened this year

    Is what I said not true though? Do you think M1000s are valued more by top players?

    Major thing we are forgetting that happened this year

    This metric is bogus without OG. If you ask the big 3 if they’d rather have 10 more Masters titles or one OG, they’d chose the OG.

    Better career: Raonic, Isner or Anderson?

    Anderson has never really been a threat to top in-form players. His only impressive wins are against Andy at the USO and Fed at Wimbledon. There’s a reason they call him king of the 4th round. His success has been largely due to being consistent in the right place at the right time.

    Better career: Raonic, Isner or Anderson?

    Good thread. I would say very slightly Raonic. Overall he’s by the best player of the three, he just has never really been able to get it together when it counts, mainly because of injuries. Isner in my opinion is most impressive because of his staying power. Tons of years in the top 20, and...
