    Does Serena have a better career than Federer?

    Why does Serena need to have a better career than any male tennis player? Also, is Serena a never-in-shape ball basher with no skills of foot speed; or and an underachiever who should have 40 Slams? Because she can't be both.

    Does Sharapova even remember when the last time she was in a final? Or maybe Serena was imagining she was playing for the Gold in London 2012?

    US Open 2019 R1: Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova

    Sharapova will be a Hall of Fame tennis player when it's all said and done. But she can't afford to retire now. She will be seen being ran out of the sport by Serena. This is not entirely her fault. The Tennis Establishment had christened her the anti-Serena after her Wimbledon win over Serena...

    What Does Maria Sharapova Have To Do To Beat Serena Williams At The US Open?

    In order for Sharapova to beat Serena, she must do things she has demonstrated over her career she can't do. For example serve with variety and hit her spots consistently. Take advantage of short balls and finish at the net. Move well. Maria is on the wrong side of 30 and she is playing an...

    Andre Agassi says In His Prime on grass sampras Would Beat Federer

    Fair enough. One-offs do happen in sports. Pete should feel some sense of pride that lost to his Heir Apparent. But Prime vs. Prime, Federer would be on the winning side of the ledger against Pete...regardless to what Agassi believes. PS. I cheered when Tsonga pulled off the upset. Thanks for...

    Face it. Federer is more talented than Sampras

    Cool. We have a difference of opinion. I think it great that where will be people to remind us who Pete Sampras is: the Last Great American Tennis Player.

    Why Venus Williams should consider retirement.

    As @ibbi stated, maybe Venus just like the play tennis. It's not like she a journeyman trying to hang on. She like playing tennis, and she has earned enough goodwill that getting a few WCs should not be an issue.

    Face it. Federer is more talented than Sampras

    Wait a minute. Didn't a pre-peak, pre-prime Federer defeated a 29 years old, Defending Wimbledon Champ named Pete Sampras who was on a 31 match winning streak at SW19...on Centre Court? People may have jump the gun on proclaiming Federer would be greater than Sampras, but those same people...

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Developing tennis players is more than just teach kids how to play tennis. It is about making tennis more accessible and find those player with athletic and mental traits that could give them a greater chance to be successful. Just hitting big serve in the juniors will only take you so far.

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    A couple of factors; one is that Americans play on hard court vs clay. Hard court reward junior players with big service games, up to a point. Another factor is that American tennis is very shortsighted. Every hot junior player is celebrated as the Second Coming and is treated as such. Their...

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Unfortunately for Opelka tennis require even greater athleticism now than 25 years ago. This is the problem with American Tennis on the men's side; the US tennis players are not very good athletes relative to the rest of the world. Look how well "big men" move now in basketball; you have...
