    Federer Slam Winning Scenarios Betterer with Medvedev

    This is wishful thinking (and I'm really wishing it can be true). Medvedev elevating his game only makes it harder for Federer because it is another top level player that can take him out in the semi or final of a grand slam. It's silly to think that Federer will just easily beat Medvedev...

    Rod Laver is everywhere. Was he this visible in tennis in the 70s, 80s, and 90s?

    When you don't work for a living, traveling is nothing. Plus he probably flies first class, which is even easier than nothing.

    The US Open draw is really opening up for Kyrgios

    I’m not sure why you are responding to my post with this. What you wrote has nothing to do with what I wrote.

    What are you talking about? He is focused so far.

    The US Open draw is really opening up for Kyrgios

    I wouldn’t really say I’m missing the point, because I’m well aware that he is less motivated when playing journeymen. I never claimed otherwise. However, while it’s true he is less motivated against journeymen, it’s not true that he always loses against journeymen. Sometimes he plays well...

    The US Open draw is really opening up for Kyrgios

    Can you two please start a new thread to discuss Del Potros head to head record vs Federer and Nadal? It’s got nothing to do with this thread and your posts are extremely boring.

    Incorrect. What’s your next prediction.

    The US Open draw is really opening up for Kyrgios

    It’s not completely moot. He played great in Wimbledon, but had a tough draw with Nadal early. If he plays that well in the US open he should breeze into the semis.

    Anyone notice that Delpo likely cost Federer and Djokovic Olympic Gold Medals in Singles?

    Exactly. And also, Nadal got 2 days off to rest after that match with Dimitrov while Federer only got 1 day after that match with Del Potro.

    The US Open draw is really opening up for Kyrgios

    It's time for Kyrgios to focus because if he plays well, he should be able to make the semis easily. He hasn't even played a match yet, and everyone dangerous in his section is dropping out.

    If Federer hadn't come before Nadal and Djokovic, absolutely nobody would be calling him the GOAT

    Federer is the greatest of all time until someone else surpasses him. If Nadal and Djokovic had come before him, then they would have been greater than Federer until Federer surpassed them. That's how life works. This is a really silly thread.

    Federer, Nadal or Djokovic will win the 2019 US Open

    I would love to bet against this if the odds are 0.1% that another player will win. Please tell me where I can put up $1 to win $1,000 if none of Federer, Djokovic, or Nadal win the US Open, I go and put $5,000 immediately against that to win $5 million.

    Better Server on Grass: Federer or Sampras ?

    The data you listed does not support the conclusion that Sampras is Wimbledon's best server. If Karlovic can have a hold rate of only 0.4% less than Sampras, despite being miles worse than Sampras in every aspect besides the serve, then Karlovic is a significantly better server than Sampras at...

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    If they extend the grass court season and shorten the clay court season to make them both equal length, and drop Madrid and one of the end of year Masters to 500 level and elevate Queens and Halle to Masters (and put them in separate weeks), then I would say that it is fair for Wimbledon to use...

    Your post is incorrect. The match was and still is valid.

    Sure and I’m not arguing against that if you read my posts carefully.

    Wimbledon rule change after Nadal-Djokovic roof controversy

    I wouldn't care too much honestly. I would be focusing on the important thing, which is the tennis.

    Wimbledon rule change after Nadal-Djokovic roof controversy

    If I was in the crowd that day, I would be enjoying the amazing tennis match. The roof being open or closed would not affect my enjoyment of the match very much.

    Tsonga playing Challengers

    Yep, he has 20 points from 2018 counting towards his ranking. He is actually #25 in the race for 2019 right now so his ranking is likely to improve quickly with good results.

    Tsonga playing Challengers

    Ranking is based on past 52 weeks. If you don't understand how he is ranked where he is, I would suggest going to his profile on atpworldtour.com and clicking on ranking points breakdown section. That will explain where all of his points come from. You can check out other players so you have...

    Challengers are basically 150s. Nothing is wrong here, except your perception of what Challenger tournaments are.

    "Coincidental" pairings in tournament draws: patterns, curiosities, matchups

    If you guess 33 at a 1-100 roulette board and win, that's a 1/100 chance. If 100 different people picked all 100 numbers, it wouldn't seem that significant because someone was going to win no matter what, but that was still 1/100 for you to win. If you then did it again and won again, that's a...

    A new grass masters: Halle or Queen's?

    If one was elevated, the other would be shifted to a different week. There are never any other ATP events during a Masters event or grand slam.

    "Coincidental" pairings in tournament draws: patterns, curiosities, matchups

    It isn't a problem to look at names. In all of the instances cited, one of Federer or Djokovic is seeded 1 or 2 and the other is seeded 3 or 4. The basic math says that they should be drawn in each other's halves roughly half the time. I understand your point that 1 should also be drawn to 3...

    Djokovic, not Roger Federer, was Rafael Nadal's toughest rival - Toni

    That's just your opinion and I disagree.

    Djokovic, not Roger Federer, was Rafael Nadal's toughest rival - Toni

    It's 25-16 and 26-22. The "official" records in this case are worthless because if you forfeit a match and no one takes your spot in the draw, you lose.

    Would Roger treasure another US Open or Wimbledon more?

    Counter point: Another Wimbledon would do more for his legacy than another US Open.
