    It is boring without Nadal/Djokovic/Federer battling

    People said it was boring with them. All sports march on, new players come in, sometimes there are great champions, other times there are simply the best of who is available. You can argue it's more interesting/less boring if the finalists aren't as predictable and any player can potentially...

    A player wins the 4 Grand Slams ....

    By who? I personally wouldn't consider anything for a completely subjective and unknowable concept such as GOAT.

    The fight for #1 (US Open 2022 edition)

    Nope. Fun Fact; Alcaraz at present has the second-fewest tournaments of the top five, only Nadal having less. If he becomes #1, it'll be by doing well in the events he is playing since only a limited number count anyway. Another Fun Fact: More than half of the maximum possible points in...

    USO Final [1] Nadal vs. [28] Anderson

    It isn't. Before today he was statistically one of the better returners in the tournament(second to Nadal in % of first serve return points won). See: first TB against Querrey, where a few fantastic returns won him the set.

    USO Final [1] Nadal vs. [28] Anderson

    Yikes. Spraying like he did in the first set of the semis. That wasn't a break, it was a donation.

    USO Final [1] Nadal vs. [28] Anderson

    'backhand has been just a little off the mark' as he sails it several feet beyond and past the doubles alley.

    USO Final [1] Nadal vs. [28] Anderson

    Five games in a mere 35 minutes. That means if this goes the distance, it's going to be what, 6-7 hours? Superb. I also think they need to redesign Ashe so Nadal can stand another 15 feet back when returning.

    USO Final [1] Nadal vs. [28] Anderson

    Few things pointlessly annoy me more than the players -- so many of them -- who must ritually go to the towel after working themselves into a lather by double-faulting.

    USO Final [1] Nadal vs. [28] Anderson

    That happens anyway, even during qualies on 250 weeks.

    USO SF [12] Pablo Carreno Busta vs [28] Kevin Anderson - Once In a Life-Time Oppurtunity

    Unfortunate that the Anderson who played last time out hasn't showed up yet. Hopefully he'll tighten things up before it gets out of hand.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    1. This is completely unknowable. Nobody knows for sure what would have happened if everyone was healthy. 2. As far as 'hardly had to beat anyone', let's examine that. Seeded above them on the bottom(and actually playing) were (10) Isner(lost to Zverev who lost to Querrey), (4) A...

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    A mutual choke-fest basically. Querrey up 6-1, took him 8 SP to eventually win it, only aided then by a blown overhead from Anderson. That's the short version.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    It's almost time to ask the question: will anyone win the TB, or will it be a repeat of the last one?

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    1. Not everyone likes the same style. Some people can appreciate varying styles of play. Personally I think it's one of the main things that makes tennis great. 2. Rivalries draw crowds. Neither Querrey or Anderson are remotely close to the same stratosphere as Nadovic in terms of...

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    There really is nothing quite like watching the same crosscourt 40-shot rally for 5 hours straight. I know that for me personally, I just salivate at the mere thought of it.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    That search party better come back with Anderson's FH pretty quick ...

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Two tiebreaks down, three to go. Not like I have to get up in the morning. Oh wait ...

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Might be the most entertaining comedy-of-errors tiebreak I've ever seen.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Anderson needs a MTO so he can send a search party to find his forehand.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Anderson self-destructing the way he rose to the occasion in the first TB.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    He should do it after his next double-fault, just to see how people react.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    His baseline game and those returns are much better than he usually comes up with. Forehand breaks down sometimes. Not right now though, for sure.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Maybe. Querrey was at like 77 or something against Zverev. Anderson might just be having one of those nights.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Great returns by Anderson. Rooting for Querrey, but to do that in this situation -- fantastic, earning him the first.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    I think both need to get a lot more aggressive on the second serves.

    [28]Kevin Anderson vs. Sam Querrey[17]

    Over/under on the # of tiebreaks in this one? Wouldn't surprise me to see 3+.

    I'll see your DF, and raise you one.

    USO 17 QF Venus William vs. Petra Kvitova

    Hilarious how both players pull off DTL winner after DTL winner ... and then stuff like that volley, the DFs, etc. So Jekkyl and Hyde both ways.

    USO 17 QF Venus William vs. Petra Kvitova

    They seriously need to stop allowing challenges like that. Glad it didn't change the result this time, but still.

    LOL @ the forum censoring out a word that was not even remotely profane.
