    Closing thoughts on the 2019 AO finals

    1. Don't ever boo Novak Djokovic. I don't know why some fans are so disrespectful to do that to a legend as he walks out onto his court, but when will fans learn that Djokovic thrives in adversity and when people are against him. I was shocked at that, especially from Rafa fans, and also that...

    Wimbledon Myth

    A myth that has been going around for years is that the grass at Wimbledon was changed in 2002. After stumbling upon an old article and doing some research that is incorrect. The grass was actually changed for the 2001 Wimbledon edition where the grass would no longer be 70% rye and 30% red...

    2018 Court Pace Index

    So tennis TV showed the court speeds so far in 2018 yesterday. Shanghai looks to be a little slower than previous years but still med fast (39.9 is close enough to 40.0) but I was surprised to see that since Djokovic said it's the fastest he has ever played on in Shanghai. What really shocked...

    Djokovic now shares a stat with Federer...

    They are the only 2 men in the history of the sport to win 3/4 of Slams at least 3 times. (Federer has done it 5 times). So Djokovic continues on the trend of being the lite Federer of this era.

    Why is Tennis Aging?

    Since we have been talking about the incredible Federer and how many top players are now over 30 I felt we should have a discussion about what's really going on in tennis. I spent a little time today doing a little research about age in tennis going back a few decades and it is older than it...

    Was 2014-2016 a weaker span or is it a myth?

    For the last couple of years, I have been hearing on this site how weak 2014-2016 was. It seems to be a pattern where fans sound off that a certain group of years were weak when it is a player other than their favorite that is dominating and I have heard this from all sides, whether it is 2006...

    All Time 5 Set Records-Open Era

    A player's physical and mental strength, and resolve is probably tested the most on the court once a match goes to a 5th set in Grand Slam or a big tournament. It's one set to either win/lose the title or one set to move on in the tournament or be out and have to wait another year to try for...
