    None of the big 4 won a slam in their 30th year

    Weird coincidence. Not one member of big 4 won a GS in the year they turned 30 - Federer: 2011 No slams - Nadal: 2016 No slams - Djokovic and Murray: 2017: No slams And 3 of the Big 4 won a slam in their 31st year, right after going slamless in the previous year;) 2012 Wimby for Fed, 2017 FO...

    Is Nadal most entertaining to watch on Grass?

    I know it's an unpopular opinion. Nadal's clay court tennis is not entertaining to me. Its on grass that he looks most vulnerable and has to make adjustments to win rather than just stay back. The match against DelPo showed that. Drop shots, net approaches, overall much more aggressive tennis...

    Who's more popular with crowds? Murray or Djokovic

    Something I wondered. Despite having much more success than Murray he doesn't seem to be a crowd favourite when they play . While he is definitely not the favourite in matches against Fedal, do the crowds in matches vs Murray warm up to him more? Despite both not being crowd favourites in their...

    Toughest feat. AO -FO double, or FO Wimby Double or Wimby - USO double?

    From the context of the Big 3 AO-FO: Only achieved by Djokovic FO-Wimby: Achieved by Nadal (twice) Federer (once) : [Honourable mention: Borg] Wimby-USO: Nadal (once) Federer(4 times) Djokovic (2 times) IMO FO-Wimby seems the toughest due to the quick change in 2 dramatically different surfaces

    Toughest draw for each Big 4 member in slams they won

    All we see these days are "weak draw" claims What were the slam wins of each of the big 4 members which had the toughest draw for them? For me Federer: Wimby 2012 (30 YO, beat No 1 Nole and Peaking Murray) AO 2017 (Berdych, Nishikori, Wawrinka, Nadal in 4 out of his last 5 matches, 3 of them...

    Most likely to win his first slam in 2017?

    Raonic and Nishikori seem to be the favorites But Thiem could grind his way through

    Nadal needs to stop using the buggy whip forehand

    IMO it takes a lot of energy and while consistent, it does not give him enough depth and penetration unless he's in great form Looking at his practice videos and really early matches, it's clear that his flat forehand is extremely powerful if not as consistent as the buggy whip
