    What Nadal achieved this week...

    Huge win for Rafa. Congrats.

    Majors won after age 28

    Some players are prodigies that do more winning than anyone else at a young age. Some players hit their stride and perform better at a later age. Different strokes for different folks and everyone is different.

    That 2005 Wimby final between Venus and Lindsay is one for the ages. Loved that match. I thought it was mostly high quality and both players were hitting HARD (and accurately). Great drama too.

    Your personal favourite shot of Novak Djokovic

    1) BH dtl when it's on 2) angled FH crosscourt 3) "sudden" change to FH dtl

    Your personal favourite shot of Roger Federer?

    Something about seeing him run around his backhand to hammer his FH is especially pleasing to me. Probably the inside-in FH followed closely by the inside-out FH.

    Your personal favourite shot of Rafael Nadal

    They all revolve around his FH. 1) banana FH passing shot 2) FH dtl 3) FH inside-out

    Cincinnati schedule Nick and Novak to share the same court for practice

    Nadal Out Of Cinci

    Smart move from him. Gain some confidence on the North American hard courts by winning Montreal, but don't lose any mental edges by facing and possibly being beaten by Nolan/Fred. Goes into US Open fresh and hope for another easy draw.

    Any chances of repeat of 2013 for Rafa?

    Have to see Cincy tournament first to gauge how the other top players are doing.

    Which table would you sit at?

    I would move Murray to table 1 and Djokovic to table 3, and then I'd sit at table 3 with a bag of popcorn. :)

    There is a "Big 4", and anyone who denies this is quite simply a Murray HATER.

    There is a Big 3 and there is also a Big 4. What is so hard to understand? The names were created for different reasons. Big 3 = possibly the greatest three players of the Open Era ("of all time" is another debate) Big 4 = the same 4 players (which includes Murray) that consistently made it...

    Djokovic fans - Win one past match?

    I would pick 2015 RG final, as that win, as you stated, would have given him a CYGS and six straight slam titles. A close second contender is one that you haven't listed: the 2012 RG final. That would have given him a "Nole Slam" much earlier and he would have two "career grand slams" to date...

    Fed beat Djoker...

    Hey, it's painful. We all have different coping mechanisms. I suppose reaching the finish line is the second best thing after actually crossing the finish, there's that.

    GS Titles by age (at Year's End for Big 3)

    Yes, it's like every time he's within striking distance of Nadal, he goes on a lull...and then Nadal pulls further ahead....before Novak goes dominant again and catches up...

    GS Titles by age (at Year's End for Big 3)

    I knew someone was going to point this out. Ding ding, you're the winner?! Sorry, I should modified the statement to dominant winning run. Yes, Novak had a 3 year sabbatical. His "winning run" started in 2011. The 2008 AO was almost like a one-off. Regardless, the point still stands...

    GS Titles by age (at Year's End for Big 3)

    Also remarkable that Novak can "catch up" to Fedal's pace. Novak started his GS winning run much later than Fedal and has had to play catch up all this time. He's certainly made up a lot of ground...

    Novak fans, do you think there has been a player you have watched that is superior to him ? If yes why ?

    Everyone (especially the truly elite) have great days when they look nigh on untouchable and bad days when they look terrible (relatively speaking). So I'm just going by peak for peak. Peak Federer was the best I've seen on grass with his combination of serving, movement, and lethal forehand...

    How many more Slams do you think Djokovic will win?

    3 for 3 Though his first point may still change by career end...great predictions.

    Djokovic liked this instagram post about Kyrgios

    At first my mind didn't click that you were referring to Novak losing twice to Nick on the court. I thought you were referencing that Novak lost to Nick on two of those things you stated (i.e. Kyrgios "sleep and pulling women"....versus just "sleep" for Djokovic....Kyrgios wins!) ;)

    That's probably one step too far; doubt any of the top players have the time and inclination to actually post here. Granted, they can just read the comments without even having an account...that is more likely.

    At this moment, would you put Djokovic ahead of Nadal?

    So you have proof that everyone will choose one option over the other?

    Again you have difficulty reading. You like to go off on tangents. I never said I owned any of the “mansions”. The fact is some will choose “18 million” and some will choose “16 million plus a lot of other valuable items”. It isn’t as cut and dry as you make it out to be.

    At this moment, would you put Djokovic ahead of Nadal?

    You must have difficulty reading. I also wrote "5 mansions". Of course it depends where the mansions are located, but here in the Silicon Valley of California, a standard house is already over a million dollars each. I know I'd rather have 16 million dollars and own 5 mansions with equity of...
