    Zvev and Med CAN beat Djoker but…

    That was not the Nadal we used to know.

    "Fresh air" Fernandez

    Fernandez is a nauseating little madam. The way she bobbed up and down was so annoying. She plays very well but her self satisfaction was a total turn off and I hated the way she played to the crowd. The very worst kind of teenager. So different from Raducanu's poise and maturity.

    This Olympic Fiasco Will Be Completely Forgotten When CYGS Is Complete.

    It's possible. But what I most disliked about Djokovic's behaviour at the Olympics was less his throwing racquets about then his supremely ungracious way of talking about his loss to Zverev. All he talked about was his so-called injuries and exhaustion etc. He never once mentioned the fact...

    Djokovic Trailed Federer by 15 slams and Nadal by 8 slams in 2010

    I agree. the success Djokovic has achieved is partly down to his being younger than his 2 main rivals. Age does matter, even a couple of years. The failure of younger players to forge a real challenge is rather mysterious. I do think the immense hype surrounding Federer, Nadal and...

    The lesson from Musetti-gate: It's not a crime to retire from loss of condition.

    Djokovic was incredibly patronising to Musetti in the post match presser. Patting him on the head from a very great height. I found his attitude nauseating. He's always trying to do the great paternalistic philosopher thing these days. And its partly the fault of Djokovic that fitness has...

    Who can stop Djokovic at Wimbledon this year?

    I'm a Fed fan but there is no way he will win Wimbledon. Nadal will definitely not win Wimbledon. He's visibly ageing and it's a real possibility he won't win RG either. If None is the 'favourite' for Wimbledon that is only because he has all the qualities and skills that make it possible...

    Post your Grandslam predictions for 2021

    As usual, overreaction to the latest news. Since AO, this year has not been normal and little can be predicted from it. The US and RG draws were lacking some significant players - at RG especially it cannot be denied that Djokovic and Nadal had easy draws. Fitness and form were more...

    Djokovic, potential 4th round woes

    Much as I don't want to see either Nole or Nadal in the final, all this is clutching at straws.

    Tsitsipas will reach the FO final

    I would love Tsitsipas to win the FO but in his last two tournaments he choked - against Coric in America and against Rublev in Hamburg. He should have won both those matches and was well on the way to doing so. He is very up and down - look at his first two sets against the fat Spanish...

    Do you think Djokovic for those couple of years hit the highest level in history?

    The beginning of this tread said it all: HE WAS LIKE A MACHINE. That's the whole problem. He lacks the creative play. It's why he's less popular and why with all the statistics in the world he will never make the genius of Federer, McEnroe, Sampras - not to mention Laver, Rlosewall ...

    General Public Interest in Tennis after US Open 2020...

    Is this an American hosted forum? I thought it was hosted by the Federer team.

    I saw Novak Djokovic for the first time in 2005 at Wimbledon"

    Why is this forum on Federer's website given over to Djokovic fans?

    The day Djokovic stopped Federer's dominance on hardcourt/grass

    In 2008 Federer had an illness, some kind of mononucleosis. Throughout the first half of the year he was not himself, e.g. losing horrendously to Marry Fish at IW - he could hardly drag himself round the court on that particular day.

    US Open Still On

    Neither Roger Federer nor Serena Williams is going to win another slam. The very top players will have absolutely everything they need to continue to practice. When tennis does return they will be frantic to perform and physically fit, but the effect of the long lay off on their psychology and...

    Andy Roddick thinks FO and USO most likely will happen and Rafa will benefit most from.

    Roger and Serena unlikely to win more slams. The very top players will have everything they need during the lockdown to keep fit and practice. There is still a question as to how the lay off will affect them. We really don't know, but they will be psychologically motivated for sure. Lesser...

    Who has the best chance to defeat Novak Djokovic at AO 2020?

    I actually was present at the Note/Tsitsipas match in Paris. The Greek just wasn't there. He signed off at 30-0 in the first game.

    Your realistic expectation from Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open 2020

    Nadal would not now beat Tsitsipas by the margin he did then. You may be sure of that.

    Thoughts on Roberto Bautista Agut as a player?

    I like him since I discovered he supports LGBTQ and loves horses. He is very understated which is much better than Nadal's phallic pumping every time he wins a point.

    Nadal 10 Federer 3

    This match had huge symbolic significance. Because Nadal lost he remains clay goat. Had he won the arguments would have started about how he's THE goat and he would still have had a chance to win another major. In terms of the legacy this match is actually more important for Roger than the...
