    Lorenzo Musetti - The True Crown Prince of Tennis - A 1HBH-er?

    Musetti's might be the best we have seen yet I'm sure it's better than Fed's because he is better at fading it inside-out and DTL If you are a fan of 1H players who don't move ponderously (Wawa) then the two most fun players to watch, ever, are playing right now

    The future of men's tennis is Italian.

    Numbers aren't everything Berrettini is old, just a gatekeeper now.

    Tsitsipas: Alleged tennis pro, aspiring model, philosopher… and misogynist?

    I typically agree but there are a lot of exceptions to this rule and this is the kind of thing you should have the good sense to think but not say.

    Lorenzo Musetti - The True Crown Prince of Tennis - A 1HBH-er?

    Can you imagine if he were to win this, going into Wimbledon? He's thought of as a clay specialist, but nothing would make me happier than to see him catch fire and snatch a Wimbledon title from Alcaraz or Djokovic or Sinner's grasp Well, short of Fed taking a WC and doing the same thing

    Lorenzo Musetti - The True Crown Prince of Tennis - A 1HBH-er?

    Huge opportunity for il Mago here going into Wimbledon He's got Jordan Thompson in his next match, who is quite good on grass but just not the talent Musetti is. Then the possible F would be the winner of the match between Korda/Hijikata and Tommy Paul.

    Curious’ match/practice videos

    It's the footwork most of all. You really aren't split stepping You may be a counterpuncher I use it a lot now. 1. Stretch defense/lob retrieval 2. Approach (gives you extra time) 3. Moonball defense

    Sinner and Alcaraz like Federer and Nadal. A new dawn in tennis.

    The B3 era lasted so long that we are DESPERATE for someone to come along and show us some generational talent....as soon as a young player gets a few big wins under his belt he's the next big thing and we never learn

    Sampras on Rafter: why the dislike?

    He's close, that's for sure Dude took much from the game and gave nothing back. Agree completely and I was a huge fan Then you haven't looked hard enough Examples of his petty, small behavior are everywhere

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    Meaning, their H2H was dead even until AO16, after that Djoko won 4-5 to take the h2h edge 27-23 Djoko was not conclusively the better player until Fed was 34-35, despite being six years younger

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    Djoko has set most of the major new records since Fed retired. And he really did not start beating him h2h until Fed was 30+ Beating Fed at the peak of his dominance is a lot more impressive than waiting until he's 30+ and then breaking all his records once he's retired Novak deserves full...

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    If anyone "invaded Federer's kingdom" it was Nadal, he beat 26yo Fed at w2008 after two years of falling short in the Final Federer beat Djoko at almost 31yo on his way to the title in 2012 no? All those Wimbledon heartbreaks to Djoko were when Fed was a month from his 33, 34, 38th birthdays...

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    He inspires the same people that Trump inspires. Big overlap between the two fanbases

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    Yeah he sounds almost American at times. Very neutral. Until you hear him say "I get along wis him"

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    If you know many Spaniards and understand their culture, it makes sense. They are a proud people and having to speak their colonial/maritime rival's language is a bitter pill to swallow Additionally Rafa is a very "homebody" type guy. He wants to chill with his homies and the men in his family...

    Who is the most inspirational member of the Big 3 on a personal level ?

    Federer, precisely BECAUSE he LACKED the champ's mentality at first. He had to work on it. He was mentally fragile on court for a long time and freely admits that. Nadal and Djoko were born with it, Fed had to develop it like it was a technique.

    Alcaraz will win Wimbledon 2024

    You are taking stats from Nadal's 2008 just before he turned 22; he didn't hit that 10th win until Hamburg 2008, and his birthday is just a few weeks later. On the other hand, Carlos has just turned 21. He was 20 until May 5. So you're comparing the two but giving Rafa the entire age-21 year...

    Alcaraz will win Wimbledon 2024

    Those Slams were all RGs; Carlos has a Surface Slam already. And how much time did Rafa spend at #1?

    Final Slam tally of Djokovic

    27 Wimbledon best chance now. Will be for some time until there's a player besides Alcaraz who can beat him there

    Fritz confirms that Djokovic is looking to be back for Wimbledon

    OOC tests can be done at any time. In-competition tests are only done after losses according to the last thing I read on it.

    Alcaraz will win Wimbledon 2024

    He is already ahead of all of them at this age, no?

    Fritz confirms that Djokovic is looking to be back for Wimbledon

    Look at Fedal, but he's not Fedal Even Federer is not Nadal with respect to the age issue Fed aged better than Nadal, and Djoko is aging better than Federer. I'm also not taking the surgery at face value. Tests are only administered after losses. If you are in trouble vs Musetti and...

    Alcaraz to get his own logo!

    Nike were really stingy with giving out logos, I think they hated having to do it with Federer because he just wasn't their kind of guy. They lowered the bar/timeline a lot for Carlos because he's their kind of guy
