    Fed 2HBH problem

    I second this comment and would like to add to the first point (about Sampras's story) that committing to a single-handed BH results in a different set of arsenals in a player's game. Some would say that it leads to a different player all together,but I am more conservative on this view simply...

    Frances Tiafoe's 'Foehand'

    During the 2015 Roland Garros match of Mr. Frances Tiafoe vs. Mr. Klizan, the commentator mentioned a hitch in Mr. Tiafoe's forehand as a vulnerability. Then I saw a match between UCLA and SD state and noticed that both players have similar forehand hitch Are they deliberately teaching this...

    Hyeong Chung- Hottest young teenager

    He seems like an average-looking dude to me, but I'm not the best to judge since my idea of a "hot young tennis player" is quite different. For example...

    Brace yourself "Murray will win French open" posts are coming

    Humbly, I rather fancy Mr. Nishikori's chances for a title at the Roland Garros.

    Nothing really matters until Rafa actually loses at Roland Garros

    Agree with the OP, it's still Mr. Nadal's title that he is defending. Still time for Mr. Nadal to 'beef up', wink wink nudge nudge :p

    I felt the same when I read the original comment. Thanks, Aretium, for having the courage to express your thought.

    Nadal is the best player I've ever seen...

    I believe a case can be made for Mr. Nadal as "the best player ever", especially if one believe that he rarely loses a match without being "injured".

    Apart from Thiem and Dimitrov are there any OHBH coming through?

    Sam Groth Not under 25 (27), but still with potentials.

    As 17year-olds: Videos of Federer (1998) & Wawrinka (2002) !danger! French

    The take back on backhand, and perhaps the forehand also, looks similar to that of Dominic Thiem today. Hope it's a good thing for the younger.

    Official Dunlop iDapt Club 2014

    Anyone know if this line of racquets is doing well in sales? It would be disappointing if it flops in less than a year.

    Why Federer Is Better Than Sampras

    Has anyone mentioned that Mr. Federer is most likely a better tipper? If we are talking about their accomplishment/contribution to the game of tennis, IMHO they are both 'great ones'. I don't dare to venture into whether one is greater or greatest, just really appreciate both.

    Rafa has appendicitis

    Ah! That's why he lost to Mr. Klizan. I knew there has to be an explanation.

    What happened to Ryan Harrison?

    Insightful observation, Thank you. I would also like to add that he doesn't seem to have a game plan when he is playing, at least not an obvious or effective one. Good coaching might provide significant help.

    Roger Federer is in worse condition than I thought

    I think Mr. Federer will do just fine with the hairline. Otherwise, there are always modern treatments available, if it actually matters to him.

    Federer-Monfils, Speculation but...

    It's hard to argue against the fact that Mr. Monfil played better than Mr. Federer on the first two sets, regardless of Mr. Federer's tactical choice. I think the faith of the third and fourth sets was really more of the failure to increase pressure on the opponent who is down two sets...
