    Nadal and Djokovic kept Federer relevant

    So Nadal and Djokovic have both won 15 Slams after 2007...? Interesting....:notworthy:

    Why am I not surprised to see this comment coming from you?

    Ashleigh Barty is our new world number one

    Congrats to her but I'm astonished how this happened so fast for her. Wasn't she ranked outside the top 5 right before RG?

    Is FAA the next Djokovic?

    Both Sampras and Federer were pretty pedestrian on grass at the beginning as well and look how that turned out. In fact, Sampras hated grass at first. He's too young to draw any conclusions yet.

    Deliciano in Queens: 10 appearances- 38 Top 10 wins!

    Feliciano has 38 top 10 wins in his career not at Queens. I don't see how someone made a mistake like that since I've never seen anyone have that many top 10 wins at any tournament.

    The player who made Sharapova forget to grunt mid-match

    I didn't need to say it in the original post as it was pretty obvious since I only mentioned the USO matches, which both happened early on in the rivalries. I didn't say Radwanska won most of the matches against her so you posting their head to head is pretty much irrelevant.

    The player who made Sharapova forget to grunt mid-match

    The second time she played her, she lost to her in the 3rd round at the USO when she was the defending champion. She had no idea how to handle her game. She lost to Sevastova and Nicelescu the first time she played them. That was the point.

    The player who made Sharapova forget to grunt mid-match

    These crafty kinds of players have often taken Sharapova apart throughout her career. She has no clue what to do with those off pace balls and loses all rhythm. Radwanska and Sevastova come to mind which both happened at the USO.

    All hail grass tennis

    Well interesting question. I guess they served and volleyed more back then so they didn't have to worry about too many of those bad bounces whereas now they stay back more and balls land in the back part of the court often where there is not much grass. Maybe about the same effect. Hard to say.

    All hail grass tennis

    Lol. Medvedev really cannot generate his own pace. He can only counterpunch against more powerful players or play passively. It's like watching tennis back in the 70s when they had less advanced equipment, except not on grass since they at least would end the points in the forecourt.

    Djokovic will win Wimbledon 2019

    Noooo. Not a Djokovic jinx thread. :(

    How many Australian Open titles will Djokovic win?

    He should hit 8 but wouldn't be surprised at 9. I don't foresee him going beyond 9 though.

    Why men players touching each other all the time?! Gratuitous

    If Murray wants to touch a god like Lopez then let him. :X3:8-B

    What's the reason for the huge gap in Djoker's conversion rate at USO and Aussie finals?

    Definitely. To say he has never lost in a SF or final there sums it up pretty well. In Australia, when he's on, he's on and delivers. At the USO, his level has been more up and down, although he made 8 finals which is even more than Australia, and he was more prone to mental collapses (13)...

    What's the reason for the huge gap in Djoker's conversion rate at USO and Aussie finals?

    They definitely aren't the same speed. AO was really quick this year.

    What's the reason for the huge gap in Djoker's conversion rate at USO and Aussie finals?

    Every player always seems to have a certain connection with where they won their first slam and usually are very successful at that Slam. Edberg won his first slam at AO and made more finals there than any other Slam. Sampras won 5 at the USO and made 8 finals, even more finals than Wimbledon...

    If Tsonga had a backhand.....

    His backhand is his weaker side but when he was at his best and feeling it, his backhand was not a weakness. This is a match where everything in his game was on and he was firing on all cylinders and it took an immense effort for Djokovic to fend him off. Tsonga, at his best, probably is the...

    Most Impressive Slam Achievement?

    I have to disagree with this. What Djokovic achieved is at least on par with what Laver did in '69 and with most probably saying it was more difficult. He did it on more surfaces, played more matches to hold all of them, and did it in a more modern era of the game when it's far more physical...

    Ranking players by return game

    They are close and I can see why some would narrowly put Murray in front. Return points won is different than 2nd serve points won though. Agassi was great at 2nd serve return points but a little lacking in first serve return points. His game reflected that as well since he was aced a lot...

    How high can Djokovic climb in history

    I don't know about who will be GOAT (In a way I find the whole thing ridiculous in how tennis is desperate to annoint someone GOAT. I saw it with Sampras and Federer) but it was in 2011 when I saw what he was capable of. It was then that I knew he could go on to be one of the greatest even...

    How high can Djokovic climb in history

    He still had made 6 Slam finals in those 9. Chances was, once he got his head on straight he was going to start converting. Sorry man, but your predictions are usually bad in general. Lol.

    Most Impressive Slam Achievement?

    I actually did see most of this one. I thought Phil was hot and Sampras was just OK but thought Sampras was going to turn it around if Phil hadn't retired.

    Lol. So many bad predictions in here and terrible underrating. @Djokovic2011, you need to have more faith in your warrior. Disappointed to read that you had resigned so easily to Tier 2. @mike danny and @Sabratha you need to give up the prediction game. You brought poor @NatF into your...

    Most Impressive Slam Achievement?

    How is that an asterisk win? He was down a set in a BO5 match which was the first time he even lost a set to him at Wimbledon. Sampras was still the favorite to win that match even though he was a set down.

    On hardcourt he is ranked #15 for his career and #36 on grass.
