    ATP week of 02/20-02/26 - Doha (250), Marseille (250) and Rio (500)

    Hurkacz just hit an amazing tweener. This is a fun match, although Bublik is a little too casual.

    2023 ABN AMRO FINAL - Daniil Medvedev [6] vs Jannik Sinner

    Agreed. Novak would serve him out wide and volley or take control of the point for the first few shots.

    Rafa out of Dubai

    That's what I thought he would do. It will be interesting to see if he shows up for this:

    These courts are fast, too fast.

    Maybe they shouldn't return serve 15 feet behind the baseline. For real, I don't think the courts are that fast. When I watched Medvedev and Rublev, I felt like Daniil could not hit through the court whatsoever.

    Why watching indoors tennis feel so bad?

    I don't like that the theater lighting the darkens out the crowd. Laver Cup also looked really slow. No one could hit through the court. I prefer indoors to be a lot faster. Some of you guys will remember the old indoor events on Supreme Court carpet. That was fun.

    air mac attack returns?

    I was a little too young for them, but I think my brother had a pair. I see that apparently LeBron and rapper Travis Scott were wearing some a couple of years ago. I would love if they could do them with current technology.

    Andy Murray shoes??

    I had a few pairs of the Curry 1 low. What Andy wears seem very similar to those.

    Pros are still wearing Vapor 9/9.5/10... Bring them back Nike

    I meant to say last week, Bencic appeared to be wearing 9s. It looks like Keys is in same 9s this week that Bencic was wearing.

    Name your all time favorite tennis shoe

    I agree with Vandre on the ATC1. Everyone always talks about the ATC2, but I liked the first version better. I think you could throw them in the wash. Mac Attacks were cool shoes. I wish they would do a retro with new technology. People rarely talk about the Air Ace. The air bag blew my...

    Those Rafa jackets are nice, but I don't like that collar. This one was just about right.

    "On" the brand of Federer, the shares has been dropped : -55%

    The On brand seems huge with many of the American soccer moms and dads. The hardcore runners don't seem to like them as they apparently break down quickly.

    Nike has a few models available right now.

    Air Trainer 1 Chlorophyll - the old McEnroe, Agassi and Wilander shoe

    They were amazing back in the day. I have to say, I have bought a few pairs of re-issues and they aren't the same. That is either because they are a lifestyle shoe now or shoe technology has advanced so much that they seem pedestrian.

    Odds To Win Men's Wimbledon 2022

    Last night, it was roughly Novak +350, Rafa +600, and Nick +600. Now, Rafa is +750 and NIck +450.

    That's funny because I was going to wear these tomorrow. But, I think this was the year he pulled out after the quarters. So, I think they may be bad luck.

    Greatest Volleyer of all-time?

    Edberg, McEnroe, and Rafter are first three that come to mind in my lifetime.

    Most annoying grunters on the tour

    What's weird about the Karate Kid is how he grunts a few seconds after he hits the ball.

    Who had a better backhand than their forehand?

    Edberg and Stan are the first two that come to mind for me.

    How far will Jannik Sinner go in Paris?

    Well, if Sinner plays Rublev in R4, who will win? Because I think that winner has a decent chance to go to the finals.

    Nike 2022 General Thread

    Are you guys buying this? I can't decide. I love the color. The collar is kind of weird. I don't like the huge N98 collars and prefer the flat look of most Rafa jackets. But, this looks like a henley shirt.

    Where do you place Mats Wilander in the pantheon of ATGs?

    I would put Andre slightly ahead of them due to winning all four. Olli's ranking above makes sense, but I would reverse 1 and 2.

    Where do you place Mats Wilander in the pantheon of ATGs?

    I think of McEnroe, Lendl, Connors, Becker, Edberg, and Wilander all on about the same tier. J Mac had that insane 1984, and would probably be a step above if he had won the French. Same for Edberg if he could have beat Chang at the French or Lendl or Wilander if they could have won Wimbledon...

    #TeamRafa how you feeling?

    I'm not team Rafa, but he is going to snack on Berrettini's weak backhand and average movement. I would make Rafa a slight favorite against Medvedev and think a match against Tsitsipas would be a coin flip.

    Nike Court Zoom NXT

    These are an amazing fit. Snug, but comfy. The outsole felt a little clunky right out of the box, but the feeling went away soon. One concern is the tread is very weird and may be a problem for aggressive stops and starts. I am also worried that the hollowed out midsole will collapse after...

    I didn't really like the 10, but I must have 20 pairs of 9/9.5. They are one of the GOAT shoes.
