    Is it all about calories or does insulin play a bigger role in fat accumulation?

    If you ask anyone at school, work, gym, in your home and on the streets: "why are people fatter than ever and why are the obesity rates increasing?" They will answer: "People are eating too much and not exercising enough". That answer is what has been drilled into our heads from childhood and...

    For people who like Anime/Manga: This is my story: Front Facade; Chapter 1

    I wrote this story and drew the images. I know that at first it seems like The Mask. However, my story uses masks as the tools for power, like how One Piece uses devil fruits. Please let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    Is Nadal the greatest prodigy in tennis?

    I believe that Nadal is the greatest prodigy in tennis as he demonstrated throughout the early years of his illustrious career. He was playing the likes of Moya during his teenage years while other kids around the world were playing against players near their own age. His career just speaks...

    How many Wimbledon titles will Novak end his career with?

    Everyone keeps saying that Novak is better on clay than grass, which I don't really agree with as I think Peak Novak on Clay is equal to Peak Novak on grass. However, there is no doubt that he has accomplished a lot more at Wimbledon than at the French. Djokovic has three titles already by 28...

    What chances does Roger have against Nadal in future slam meetings?

    I know that everyone writes off Roger against Nadal and with good reason due to his 2-9 record against his rival as well as the fact that Roger has not beaten him since 2007. However, time keeps on advancing and Roger and Nadal are changing. Nadal for example has gotten better on Hard courts...

    Agressive Nadal Matches

    I was watching the highlights for the 2010 Nadal-Murray SF and it was just amazing how well Nadal played in the match. The scoreline was tight for 3 sets and it resembled the two victories Djokovic had over Federer at the AO where it was just clutch play that made it straight sets. The stats...

    If Federer, Nadal and Djokovic were the same age

    Alright, if it was Novak, Nadal and Federer in their primes at the same time (ie. they are the same age) then they would all take slams from each other. Novak would reign over AO, Nadal over RG, Fed over Wimby and all would fight at the USO, IMO. Everyone acts like Fed would never beat Nadal...

    Super Proud of Federer

    There is too much negativity on these boards whenever a player loses a final. Especially for Federer, they call him a choker and talk about his 5 set record, and his racket change, etc. However, can any of you remember why you got into tennis? Tennis is just an amazing sport that is so fun...

    Who is the greater player? Mcenroe or Wilander?

    Hey guys, I love watching John Mcenroe play tennis and even though I prefer his brand of tennis more than Wilander's, I respect Wilander a lot for his accomplishments and his great mentality and tactics. These two played in one of the toughest era's of tennis and they both won 7 GS titles...

    At what point do you stop counting the H2H between Federer and Nadal?

    Hey everyone, I was just curious if you guys still count the H2H between Roger and Nadal? This thread was inspired by a Nadal fan on the boards (Champ) as he stated that he doesn't add to the H2H anymore as Fed is too old at this point. I personally think the head to head should be 18-10...

    Am I the only one who anticipates Fedal slam meetings?

    I have been a long time lurker on these forums and it seems that the majority of Fed fans hate Fedal slam meetings as Nadal wins almost all and hasn't lost to Fed since 2007. They cite that the reason these matches are boring and not in doubt is due to the fact Nadal hits to Roger's BH over...
