    Peak Hewitt v Peak Nadal on clay. Who is better?

    Didn't Hewitt say if he had to chose a tennis player to play tennis for his life he'd chose Nadal? That's the ultimate sign on respect.

    Novak Djokovic: How 1999 Nato bombings of Belgrade shaped his career

    Nato's bombing of Belgrade was a war crime, Teflon Tony Blair then Bush Jr got away with that and the lies about Iraq and the Weapons of Mass Destruction. Dropping depleted uranium on Iraqis in the name of peace? I'm sure people can understand the hypocrisy of that. Yugoslavia has suffered...

    Berdych is so underrated

    Berdych should get some credit though, he was in the top ten from 2010-2016, that's an achievement to be part of an elite group of players for 7 seasons. He had the ability and the tools but mentally I think he lacked the self belief, Australian Open semi final 2014, he could have beaten...

    2019 Rome FINAL: Novak Djokovic (1) vs Rafael Nadal (2)

    "Rafa Nadal is waiting, talking Italiannnnnnnn" :). Congrats to Nadal, first title of 2019 and most likely a significant confidence boost before he defends his French Open crown and his opponent in the final is most likely Djokovic.

    Top players with the worst serve mechanics

    Volandri had a terrible serve though he'd most likely serve better than me, I don't know if he's still active. Berdych's original service motion with the incredibly high ball toss didn't help him in pressure situations vs top players.

    Why is Kyrgios mad?

    He was bullied in regards of his weight when he was a kid which does leave emotional scars, I don't know his parentage whether they're still together or not, if they were away from home when he was growing or not, being a kid whilst your parents are going through a divorce isn't great and fudges...

    Poor Dimitrov... got destroyed again LOL!

    When does Dimitrov hit rock bottom like he did in 2016 when he went mad in Istanbul, he's had shoulder tendinitis I believe, which is a terrible injury to have when playing tennis, playing a one hander with that hurts like hell, that put Tommy Haas out the whole of 2003, then since winning the...

    2019 Rome FINAL: Novak Djokovic (1) vs Rafael Nadal (2)

    Djokovic in 2, I sense a repeat of 2011 in Rome when Djokovic went through a marathon with Murray in the semis only to dominate Nadal in the final, Djokovic loves being pushed to the limit and he usually fights harder vs his main rivals. Nadal isn't at his best, he's improving with every...

    2019 Rome QF - (2) Rafael Nadal v Fernando Verdasco

    Nadal talking about taking time in between points? Pot and Kettle spring to mind.

    Fed out of Rome

    You don't see him playing beyond 2020? I hope you're wrong!

    Coric grunting like a madman on match point

    The crowd LOVES Federer in Rome, you hear the noise every time he won a point? Federer is the people's champion, no doubt.

    Fed out of Rome

    He should play Geneva instead.

    God they killed Game of thrones !

    Game of Thrones is turning into Dexter, it's run it's course and the last season isn't great compared to their earlier works.

    The Rise & Fall Of The Zedraffe Empire (LOL! Goldilocks Got Destroyed Once More)

    A Zverev's troubles began as soon as he won the WTF's, I think motivational issues have arrived from that win.

    Poor Dimitrov... got destroyed again LOL!

    Wasn't he number 3 in the World like 2 years ago? Christ this is the 2nd time he's been in a slump, he made the top 10 in 2014, then 2015/most of 2016 were awful, then he peaks again in 2017 now 2018/2019 he's been awful, so 2020 must be another peak year.

    What is wrong with Djokovic?

    I'll bump this because Djokovic wins the Madrid Masters, his level is nowhere near the form he showed at the Australian Open demolition of Nadal but his level is good enough to win a Masters tournament and stretch his lead at the top to 5000 points. You can have iffy form between a Slam and the...

    Dimitrov's new coach - Radek Štěpánek

    Federer: "Losing with match points is the worst"

    Federer has nothing to be ashamed of, plays a Clay tournament for the first time since 2016 and makes the Quarters and pushes one of the 3 favourites for the French Open. The 3 favourites to me are Nadal, Djokovic and Thiem. It's a building block and Federer will move onwards and upwards...

    2019 Madrid QF: Rafael Nadal [2] vs Stan Wawrinka

    Wawrinka's knee injury from 2017 really tamed the Stanimal, we've seen glimpses of his former self but that bloody knee took a multiple slam winner and a top tier player away.
