    If Djokovic is going to miss the Australian Open next year who else will be champion in your opinion?

    I don't have to go into the details, all of you know what has been circulated in the press. Please can we not talk about the you know what's? You know where I stand, I know where most over posters stand on that situation, some agree, some disagree but that subject isn't the topic of this...

    Are we entering a version of the 2001-2003 ATP Era?

    In 2001-2003 there was a vacuum because the Sampras era was over and Hewitt, Gustavo Kuerten and the veteran Agassi among others picked up the pieces somewhat until Federer's ascension to the top, during this period of time there were surprises winning or making finals of high level tournaments...

    When Metallic Murray pulls the bung out (Plays well) he actually is really interesting to watch.

    Andy "Metal hip" Murray played some brilliant tennis at Indian Wells, only to lose to an in form Alex Zverev but Andy has played really solid tennis, not pushing or this rope-a-dope counter punching either, he's going to the net more often, more dropshots, using his backhand with pace and his...

    Having a pain every time when I do press ups or chest presses

    The pain is between the deltoid and the pectoral muscle on the left side, I think it's called the pectoralis Minor, it's the where the humerus and pectoral muscles connect. I don't know the name for it but I've tried every remedy like trying less heavy weights ala moving down from 37.5kgs for...

    Murray still is taking up someone else's place in a Grand Slam draw.

    If it was someone else, someone new or up and coming they could well have beat Tsitsipas. Name me one tournament on the ATP tour Murray has gotten to either the Quarter final or better since winning in Antwerp in 2019? NONE. Federer has barely played in over a year, comes back yet still...

    At what point does the argument that Andy Murray is taking someone else's place in draws come up?

    Whether it's wildcards, getting direct entry due to another player withdrawing Andy Murray gets the rub of the green to make the main draws of tournaments without qualifying for them, he barely makes any impression in the tournaments he enters and it's been the case since he won in Antwerp in...

    Fernando Verdasco, who saw an early exit in Wimbledon, has announced some positive fitness update ahead of the US Open 2021. Notably, it was after his loss that the 37-year-old realised an inflammation on his left elbow again. Thus, he decided to undergo a minor procedure under medical advice to...

    Mark Philippoussis' last grand slam match vs.....

    Nadal, in 2006, I liked Mark, he had a major serve, career derailed by injuries, he could have won a slam.

    Is Andy Murray an enigma? What turned an aggressive counter puncher into a negative counter puncher?

    Is the difference in 3 years mental baggage rather than anything? In 2008 Murray broke through, he became the best world number 4 ever (Really) and was there until 2014 after his back woes. You can see the difference between the big 3 and Murray, it's aggression, you can win ugly but can you win...

    How high is the ceiling for Berrettini?

    Can he win a slam? What is the very peak of his powers in terms of rankings ect? His form throughout the grass court swing has been brilliant, he can do well at the US Open also.

    Djokovic isn't done yet...

    I think he's gone more slams to win, as a neutral, slightly biased towards Federer but I think Djokovic is the greatest Male player in the Open Era. I'm not into the "Goat" fan wars but the records speak for themselves, is Djokovic as marketable as Nadal or Federer? No but he should be, he's a...

    Federer is starting to become match fit and it's showing

    Slowly but surely, in dribs and drabs we're witnessing Federer playing solid tennis and it's great to see. - No Spoilers. You have to understand since the Australian Open in 2020 Federer has barely played any tennis due to covid and knee issues, time is not on his side but the mere fact he's...

    Why are people delusional in regards of Andy Murray's current state?

    I was looking through the match thread and people couldn't help but throw shade yet what is funny is that the same people won't acknowledge that Murray is a shell of his former self. Is this just ignorance? How can you expect someone who wouldn't stand next to a super magnet due to the fear of...

    I really don't like Sonego's grunts

    4:52 onwards but the whole video is entertaining. Just his attitude and grunts take me off my game if I were a Professional Tennis player, it's hard to try to ignore that.

    The fighting spirit of Federer is underrated

    People never mention that he has incredible fight, he doesn't give up when the chips are down. Remember all the 5 setters he's had in slams? Invariably in the times he lost he loses to the other atgs. I know people seem to get triggered talking about age but he isn't supposed to be winning...

    What do you think of Cameron Norrie?

    At this moment in time would he be classified as a "Journeyman" tennis player? I think if he keeps his form up he'll be in the top 30. His strokes remind me of Mannarino's, a game style of touch.

    Roger Federer "I know that I will not win Roland Garros" Geneva 2021

    Federer setting low expectations which could be of a benefit, there is a possibility he could ease his way into form and reach the Quarters or Semis at the French Open, in my view he will need to employ the drop shot more frequently and be more aggressive off of his backhand.

    Where is Fernando Verdasco?

    I haven't seen him play in ages, I can't actually remember seeing him play since 2019. I've checked his ranking and it's currently 71st. I'm wondering if this is his last season, he turns 38 in the fall. His fearhand will forever be remembered by us tennis fans.

    The boggling thing in the Murray vs Federer H2H

    The last time Murray and Federer played was in 2015 but something happened between 2013/2014. Murray beat Federer in the semi finals of the Australian Open in 2013 in 5 sets and extended his H2H lead 11-9 however something changed and I believe it has something to do with Federer playing more...

    A question to users/tennis players here, would you want to be consistent with a lower ceiling or be less consistent with a higher ceiling?

    When I think of consistently top players with lower ceilings I think of Murray or Ferrer or Berdych. Can anyone provide WTA equivalents? I think Svitolina fits a consistent with a lower ceiling comparison. Sloane Stephens at her best could beat anyone but I presume her ranking drop is due to...

    I don't like Andy Murray's forehand, attitude on court and 2nd serve and he's not an ATG.

    I said it, do I need to make loaded questions to obfuscate my dislike for certain elements of Andy Murray's game? And the fact he is not an All time great? Why don't people stop massaging the areola and get to the pinching the nipple? IE Get to the point. It's not I dislike Murray personally...

    On Monday Diego Schwartzman will wake up to being a new member of the top 10 - Congrats!

    He will enter the top ten at number 8 when the rankings come out on Monday. That cliche that "hard work pays off" surely applies to Diego, he's fighting with comparative giants yet he's made a reputation from felling them. He's 28 also which in tennis terms means you've got some miles on your...

    Will these "expectations" in regards of Murray cease?

    "He's going to be back in the top 20, he could go deep in a slam, he might win another masters" The very fact he's playing should be cause for celebration for his fans, neutrals ect. His game relies on the grind, the slog, the Hewitt-esc fight but all those marathon matches, all that running...
