    Zverev's year

    This could have been Alexander Zverev's year but in the end it became a mixed bag. He has most titles on ATP tour. 2 masters, 1 OG. He will most likely return to world no. 3 tomorrow from 7 last year. But even after doing so much he did so little. 0 grand slams 0 grand slam finals With...

    Who would have more RG: Novak or Stephanos

    By the end of their career, considering the trajectory Tsitsipas is on, will he have more Roland Garros than Djokovic? I used to wonder the same about Thiem but he has been a proper failure on RG till now and he is already 27.

    Berrettini coming for revenge of the scream

    Djokovic didn't have proper reaction to say the least when he beat Bettettini. Since that match Berrettini is undefeated. He has won the second best grass tournament on grass. And he has dropped just 3 sets in 10 matches. Is revenge fuelling the Italian?

    USopen 2012 Murray vs USopen 2019 Nadal

    This is interesting but hardly discussed. Andy is 1 time USopen finalist and 1 time champion. He had beaten Rafa in USopen 2008 semis but Rafa had also beaten him in USopen 2011 semis. Who would win between post prime Rafa vs prime Murray?

    Final count of Djokovic

    After RG2016, I thought Novak might win max 20 grand slams. He still hasn't won his 20th and there are no guarantees in sport. But it seems like Djokovic wins more than people expected him to. Almost everyone had given any hope that he will win his second RG after 2019. Djokovic has won 7/11...

    What is the value of ATP Final in 2020?

    Throughout the past decades that I was following tennis, ATP Final, World Tour Final or Tennis Masters cup, whatever the name may be was always called as fifth slam. There was an aura about top 8 players fighting for the trophy and RR format allowing multiple players to play vs each other. The...

    Our World no.1 seems done on clay

    Djokovic is back. He is on top. He has won 28 straight sets in a row. He won Cincinnati and US Open in summer which were places where he seemed to have enough troubles. Looking forward to 2019, he looks to be in dominant form. He will be favorite for most of the tournaments like he is for...

    Federer Djokovic and the serving stats

    ATP site has given rating for serves in every match. This is actually double edged thing. If a player serves well vs strong returner and underperforms, he get lower rating. But if a player serves bad vs weak returner, he gets strong rating. But I am only taking the stats for Federer vs Djokovic...

    Most grass court meetings in current players

    Djokovic and Nadal have met 4 times on grass. For such short grass season, that is good amount of meetings. Who are the active guys that have met more times than these two? Simon and Delpo have also met 4 times.

    Weeks at no.1 is vastly overexaggerated

    Novak Djokovic has held record for record no. of points after French open at 16,950. Andy Murray was quite distant second player at 8,915 points. This was the largest gap in top 2 players ever so Andy was thoroughly dominated. Rafael Nadal currently holds 8,770 points. Less points at no.1...

    Should we create a closed era

    Federer was done winning majors and was starting to vulture 250s and Cincinnati. Nadal was done winning grand slams, he wasn't even reaching semis. Now, they have won last 6. 4 of them in dominant fashion. ATP has created a next gen tournament because its impossible to break into top 8 for...

    What has happened to Dimitrov's backhand? :(

    I don't think anyone ever had doubt about Dimitrov's backhand to be a weakness. But just a year back, people were comparing how Dimitrov's elasticity helps him with high bounce and blah blah. Today, watching him vs Kei, he can't hit a proper topspin backhand. All are slices. His backhand pass...
