    Slam count less the ....

    Inspired by other highly intellectual threads I thought it was worth a minute to put something into perspective. Take away the French Open, the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the USO and here's what we have: Federer - 0 Slams Djokovic - 0 Slams Nadal - 0 Slams :unsure: Discuss.

    When next American slam mens singles champion?

    It's been 14 years since last American Andy Roddick became mens singles slam champion - US Open 2003. Ever since the situation has been worse and worse - last Wimbledon's Sam Querrey's SF run was rather an exception (he's almost 30) than the presage of the resurrection. When do you think US...

    The advantage of serving first in the 5th set - a myth or a fact?

    It's the first time in the Open Era that three French Open semi-finalists got there without losing a single set. What does it tell about the tournament and those players? Their very high level? Low level of competition? Any other conclusions?

    Question to Nadal fans

    Out of these two defeats which one was more painful to you and why: 1. Australian Open 2012 final (Nadal was up 4-2 in the fifth) 2. Australian Open 2017 final (Nadal was up 3-1 in the fifth) I think they are quite similar because in both cases Rafael very pretty close to the finish line but...

    Dominic Thiem – future multiply grand slam champion

    I am new on this forum but I’ve been following tennis since late eighties. As an introduction a couple of words about myself: In the past years I was a big fan of Sampras, Edberg and to a lesser extent Becker. Nowadays I am a big fan of Federer and other players especially Wawrinka, Thiem...
