    Confession of a Djokovic fan - I had a feeling Nadal would win, but not like this!

    As a diehard Djokovic fan living in Australia, I was unable to watch the match, so it wasn't a complete surprise to wake up to the news at 6am, that he had lost the RG final, and 6-0 in the first. The complete domination in the first two sets of the match was very surprising. I've never seen...

    Which achievement is greater, world no.1 ranking or winning a single grand slam?

    In the Open Era, majority of ATP players ranked world no.1 have won at least 1 grand slam. However, the only player to have not, is Marcelo Rios whose best achievement was making the AO final in 1998. Its a different story with the WTA, with multiple slamless no. 1's such as Dinara Safina...

    Halep has been in good form lately on the clay and since winning in Rome, with many saying that she is the favourite going into Roland Garros.

    Will we ever see another BIG 3 or BIG 4?

    The fact that we have been able to witness three of the games best players compete at the same in the same era has been truly amazing.

    Can Victoria Azarenka get back to no.1 ?

    Her run to the US Open final this year, beating Serena en route has surprised many. She dominated in 2012-13, and is probably in the top 5 best active hard court players on the womens side. It has me thinking, is it too soon to say she could make it back to no.1 in the world. Winning the US Open...

    'Tennis Karen' and the beginning of a Djokovic redemption story?

    With the rise of the coronavirus in recent months the term 'Karen' has been attached to a middle age, white woman who is very privileged and entitled. Many djokovic fans are labelling the lineswoman a 'tennis Karen' for her 'Oscar worthy performance'. This comments are pretty funny. Don't think...

    What are your thoughts on PCB?

    Pablo Carreno Busta is now through to the QF, of the US Open. Him progressing due to Djokovic's default has thrust him into the spotlight a bit more. Although he did make the semis in 2017. His meltdown after losing a tight 5 setter against Nishikori made alot of headlines at last years AO. Do...

    Will this incident impact Djokovic's legacy?

    With the news of Djokovic being defaulted from the US Open this year, I wonder what long term implications this will have for him. He has been playing at a pretty high level, so far this year and has already achieved so much in his career. This slam was wide open and could be the deciding...

    Will Serena Williams ever win another grand slam?

    The window of opportunity appears to be closing more and more. With the suspension of the tour a few months ago, Serena is running out of time.

    Does Andy Murray's poor slam final conversion rate impact his status as an ATG?

    Andy Murray has achieved a significant amount, through his 3 slams, Olympic Gold medals and 8 other slam finals. His defensive skills and ability to compete with the big 3 during his peak would arguably put him in ATG status. However, I can't help but wonder whether his losses to Djokovic in...

    Its Venus v Coco again! What are the chances? AO Prediction: Venus to win.

    Venus and Coco will play each other again in the first round of the 2020 Australian Open. Seems a bit rigged to me, but anyway. Venus will be desperate to get revenge for her Wimbledon defeat last year. She hasn't played a match since China last year, so its gonna be tough. But if her serve is...

    ATP CUP - FAA's unforced errors

    Just watched Felix Auger Aliassime (FAA) get beaten by Millman this morning, and the amount of unforced errors FAA made was quite staggering.

    Could Venus Williams have won the 2017 US Open, if she'd made it past Sloane Stephens?

    Flashback to just over 2 years ago and it was 4-5, 30-30 with Venus only two points away from making it to the US Open final in 2017. I feel like she'd was able to defeat Sloane, then she would of had a good shot at beating Madison Keys. As alot of us saw, Keys was an unforced error machine, and...

    Can Venus Williams win a slam in 2020?

    2020 could likely be one of the last years (if not the last year) for Venus on tour. Having won 7 grand slams, many other slams in doubles as well and a total of 49 singles titles, she is definitely on the list of GOATS' in the womens game. I'm curious, what do you think her chances are of...

    Venus Williams will face Saisai Zheng in the first round, which could be a tricky opening round given Saisai's variety and ability to counterpunch. If she does make it through, she is projected to face Svitolina in R2, who beat her in R1 of the French Open this year. Svitolina is also able to...

    What does 'inspired tennis' actually mean?

    I've read a countless number of articles which have mentioned that a player was 'inspired'. Does inspired just mean that a lower ranked player, was determined to beat a higher ranked player, and therefore caused an upset. In what circumstances can this term be correctly used. Could it be said...

    Venus debuts new service motion at Rogers Cup

    In her first round loss to Suarez Navarro, Venus Williams displayed a slightly different service motion, to her usual one and is also rumored to be using a new, lighter racket. I wonder if this change in motion is a last ditch attempt, to alter her game and try and gain more consistency in terms...

    High number of DF's in WTA Rogers Cup matches.

    Looking at the stats for the first/second round matches it appears that players are serving quite a high number of double faults so far, with usually good servers such as Pliskova having 9 and still managing to win the match. Also, players such as Bencic, Azarenka, Gorges and Yastremska all...

    Giorgi has had some success in grand slams, making it to the QF of Wimbledon last year. She also had decent wins over players such as Azarenka & Sharapova in the past. She has currently made it to the final of the Citi Open in Washington. Her aggressive power game is quite streaky, with her...
