    Federer fans, be honest...

    This is an excellent post and has not been pointed out enough. A 5 year age gap in professional sports in huge. The difference from peak to being done. Everyone wants to compare Fed to Nadal and The Joker, but the only reason they are grouped together is due to the incredible longevity and...

    2/3 of Nadal majors are on the same event

    Even if he has your reduced "more balanced" record, he still falls behind Fed and The Joker.

    2/3 of Nadal majors are on the same event

    Clay court tennis is not real tennis anyway. It's all endurance and baseline bashing. 12 of his 18 are on the dirt........without the dirt he's Stan Wawrinka. Not bad, but Rafa is 3rd behind Fed and The Joker. The Joker has time to pass Fed.

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    I only used it for a short time and went back to my RF97 and H19's. I just started trying out the 2017 18X20 Pure Strike. I'm amazed at the feel this frame has and the stability at such a light weight compared to my RF97. I had the 16X19's briefly awhile back and I must admit that the 18X20...

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    Excellent post. #3 really hurts my arm, and i believe most are not even aware that this exists. Most stiff frames don't bother me, but flexible frames kill my elbow.

    Thiem using new Pj of Pure Strike 2019 at RG

    The Pure Strike is the perfect frame for his style of play. I hit with one last night just for fun, and it's all high rpms and rhs. Very stable for a sub 12oz frame, and not too stiff either. The ball really jumps off the strings when you hit the sweetspot. Nice controlled rage and so easy to...

    What is the single most ugliest shot in tennis?

    Any two handed backhand. It's just not natural.

    How did Bimblestob ever get so much power behind the scenes to begin with?

    This sounds like a description of Trump, lol. Anyway, you have to realise that in business, no matter the industry, the most successful guys at the very top of are the same ilk. They are bullies and they get the job done at all costs. Niceness is not a required trait.

    Christian Garin a darkhorse at the French?

    He'll be gone before the quarters at the French. 2-3 set matches cannot compare to 3-5 set matches.

    Gimelstob resigns

    I don't care what the situation is, or the backstory or the back ground, you don't maliciously attack someone. Any "friend" who stands by someone after this is part of the problem, an enabler. If my closest friend in the world did something like this, i'd be all over

    Gimelstob resigns

    Isner is the worst kind of "good guy"...............................I may actually prefer dealing with least it's all in the open. There was a time when I mistook Isner's demeanor as him being a nice guy.................I was soooo wrong. So actually, he and Justin being...

    Gimelstob resigns

    He jumped his former friend from behind while he was trick or treating with his pregnant wife and 2 year old daughter. Striking him 50 times !!!! Who does that? All because the guy was still friends with his ex-wife, who sued him years ago for abuse...

    Babolat Pure Strike Tour Club

    I borrowed my old Pure Strike Tour from a friend I gifted it to years ago: what a sweet frame. My RF97 feels thinner and gives me more finesse and feels more like an extension of my arm, BUT the PST is just as stable if not more so and is great hitting the ball early with exceptional...

    4.0 still full of pushers

    The best players aren't really concerned with labels, a win is a win is a win. The only thing that matters is the win. It drives me crazy that I can't get my opponents to play in the exact style that helps me win with little or no effort in every single match. What the bleep is wrong with...

    RF97 vs RF97 (Federer setup) - @Peterfig vs @Geoff - The Showdown in Atlanta!

    My observations are: 1) That is not Peter and that is not Geoff 2) Federer does not really use the RF97 3) Peter had nothing to do with the design of the RF97 4) Geoff does not know BHBH and has never been to Atlanta

    What's Wrong With Zverev?

    There's nothing wrong with him. You can't compare him to or expect him to be Fed, Nadal, Djoker.......................those guys are once in a generation talent....................And their biggest talent is between the ears and to be able to do it every single day for years. IMO Zverev doesn't...

    Is it racket or racquet?

    Some would say it's quite a racket that all these racquet companies are able to continually convince you that you need a new racquet. Let's play how many times can you use racquet and racket in a single sentence.

    Most overrated player in the Open Era

    Why do people use 93 instead of 100 ?

    Racquet choice is very personal. It is however possible that someone would have more control with a 130 frame vs a 93, based on the other specs of the frame and the skill level of the user. It's possible that if Agassi used a smaller frame he may have had less...

    John Isner has won heart today....

    What exactly are left wing policies? Are you from the US? I'd imagine the specifics of this broad term would vary from country to country.

    John Isner has won heart today....

    Fed's charities and philanthropic efforts are well publicized.

    John Isner has won heart today....

    He may have won if he had worn his MAGA cap. It's fake news that Federer won. Fed and Isner are polar opposites when it comes to political ideologies. Fed is my guy, clearly.

    Who is stronger peak Wawrinka or peak Roddick?

    Initially this was a close one but the more I thought about it, it really isn't close at all, my vote goes to Stan by far. No way can you pick a one dimensional player with a big serve and a big forehand against a guy who has an excellent all around game, a monster backhand and who has competed...

    Tsitsipas being a garbage bag again

    He taps the racquet twice on the ground. WOW. For all the flack Kyrgios gets, he would never do that. I don't like Tsitsipas at all. If Nick did this people would be losing their minds. It would be an International incident!!

    Dimitrov has gone from Baby Fed to Infant Fed

    This guy's game has regressed so much it's so hard to watch him play. He'd been better off playing in the 80's. He doesn't have a single weapon, does everything well, is very predictable and plays a very beautiful non threatening style of tennis. The most important stroke by far in tennis is...
