    What's the word on Bianca Andreescu?

    Her personality checks but is she good enough on the court to challenge?

    Roger Federer is not yet done winning slams. [ESPN Interview]

    Watching this interview, I am convinced Federer is far from done as far as his grand slam count is concerned. There is this air of freshness in his words when he talks about tennis in ways you don't hear when Nadal or Djokovic talks about tennis. The mark of true a champion is the constant push...

    Roger Federer is well aware of the importance of H2H for GOAT status

    2:15 Federer's long forgotten about Nadal. He knows Djokovic is coming for the throne.

    The streets of Japan give their take on Osaka's dual-citizenship

    Sounds like not only do most not know about her dual-citizenship, they don't even know who she is.

    Federer's game only got worse as his shirts kept getting smaller and tighter

    I know Fed's European blood predisposes him to said outfits, but Federer to me, was at his very purest best (i.e. he could and would hit any shot from anywhere against any opponent without hesitation) when he was wearing the slightly bigger shirts that were often made with a mesh fabric. See...

    This is what Nadal thought of Djokovic before 2011

    2006 - French Open 2008 - Monte Carlo 2010 - US Open These are all excerpts taken from Rafa's book, Rafa: My Story that was released back in 2011. Needless to say, I can't wait for its sequel.

    The reason Nadal never chokes (i.e. rarely ever lose to inferior players)

    From reading his autobiography way back in 2011 and if my memory serves me right, the reason he hardly ever loses to players who are considered lesser talents or lower ranked than him can be attributed to two things: 1. Childhood (As a child, Nadal's parents would drive him 5 hours just so he...

    The AO is out to get Novak Djokovic

    They know Nishikori is the boogeyman for Djokovic. Pablo Carreno Busta had every right to behave in the way that he did after the travesty that was allowed in today's match. Edit: Pablo had every right, and only the right to such behavior, as he was rightfully shot down by the umpire. It was...

    Novak's favorite player was Sampras...

    I'm not entirely sure about that. Was that a shot at Agassi? Djokovic plays nothing like Sampras lmao. How can anyone be a fan of Sampras without a serve + volley game? Ludicrous.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Djokovic now loses to Millman

    The Machine is often prone to mental lapses when he is the unanimous odds on favorite in grand slams. I wouldn't be surprised if he's mentally switched off now that Federer has been knocked out. Now, Rafa on the other hand, gets even more mentally strong when he's the favorite. I've always...

    Federer didn't lose to Millman tonight...

    He lost to Djokovic. You know it, and I know it. Federer was battling his inner demons throughout the night of whether he wanted to face Djokovic or not in the next round.

    How will legalized sports gambling affect tennis?

    I can see a lot of players participating. Especially the bottom-feeders and the likes of Murray who are always complaining about long schedules and little pay.

    American Tennis has not done their part

    Tennis is entering dark times. The rest of the world has done their part in producing top tier players, but America has produced absolutely zilch since the days of Sampras/Agassi.

    Quite possibly entering the weakest era of tennis ever

    Once the big 3 are gone, who is left? I fear for the state of tennis.

    Relax Federer fanboys, Djokovic could easily have 17 slams right now

    The man could be easily sitting at 17 grand slam titles right now. 2 losses to Stan, 2 losses to Murray, and 1 loss to Nadal at the US Open of all places. This would mean he would have already tied Federer's record before Federer discovered the fountain of youth. Those matches that he gave...

    Chung Hyeon just slayed the entire Zverev clan

    Made one brother retire and bagled the other one in the deciding set of a BO5. I'm getting Michael Chang vibes from this dude. I fear for Djokovic tomorrow.

    Novak Djokovic gives 55 minute podcast

    His time winning grand slams might be over. His lack of motivation/hunger/killer instinct in this video is very alarming. He sounds more focused on other things outside of tennis.

    Novak Djokovic lacks the killer instinct that of Federer/Nadal

    This killer instinct is what truly separates the thee greatest tennis players of all time. The Big 3's record in Grand Slams: Federer: 19-10 (29 Total Finals) 6 losses to Nadal, 3 losses to Djokovic, and 1 lost to JDP. JDP played lights out in that final. Nadal: 16-7 (23 Total Finals) 3...

    Why does Nadal continue to utilize the moonball on hardcourts?

    Does he not realize how he won the US Open and Australian Open? Dude really needs to reserve those moonballs for the clay season.

    Who is currently your favorite player on the tour?

    It's going to be a sad day when the Big-3 leaves our sport. I'm having a hard time seeing any of the current crop of players taking up the mantle that is left behind and raising it even further. We are soon entering the dark age of tennis.

    2011 Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player of all time.

    His form in 2011 is the highest/purest form of tennis the human eye has ever witnessed. No player in the history of the game is touching Novak in 2011. Peak Federer? Nope. Remember, Federer was only 29 in 2011. Peak Nadal? Nadal's peak was 2010-2011. Peak Sampras? Come on now.

    Marcos Baghdatis has no Grand Slam titles to Andy Murray's 3

    This is a travesty. I place Baghdatis a couple of leagues ahead of the likes of Tsonga, Gasquet, and yes, even Andy Murray. He was primed to be the new Marat Safin. It's crazy to think players like Murray and Soderling have a GS next to their names and Baghdatis has zero notable titles...

    PSA: There is no such thing as a "First Serve" and a "Second Serve"

    There is but 'one serve' and that's 'the' serve, 'your' serve, etc. One serve. Two attempts. You may serve anyway you like. You can shift it a bit to the left on your first attempt if you want to. It boggles the mind anytime I'm watching a match and I see they've separated the serving...

    French Open 2012 SF: Federer vs. Djokovic = Most perplexing match ever

    I have never seen Roger Federer strike shots so hard, let alone on clay, than I have during this match against Novak Djokovic. I mean Fed was making it look like they were playing on HC at times with the winners he was banging in. Looking at the statistics and the scoreline, you'd say Roger...

    Novak Djokovic hasn't been the same man ever since he got married

    Same thing happened with Sampras... same thing happened with Agassi. When was the last time Djokovic consistently brought home slams? That's right. Before he got married. Either that, or the CVAC diet's placebo has completely worn off and Djoker has finally come back down to planet Earth.

    You cannot reach the pinnacle with just consistency

    See Novak Djokovic. The opportunities that this man has had to conquer the CYGS and the Olympics only to come up short proves this. Novak is a machine that will consistently produce results but he will never have the creativity to reach the pinnacle of say a Roger Federer. Djoker needs to be...

    Novak Djokovic is the skinniest guy on the tour...

    yet he is probably the most durable athlete in the game today. Where is his power generated from? I know he does tons of work on his core and it's quite obvious that he does but his arms are such twigs. Stephen Curry... Novak Djokovic... Conor McGregor... The skinny guys are really dominating...

    Novak will only win 1 slam in 2016

    Mark my words. History will always repeat itself and Djokovic has proven he he a victim of forgone conclusion. Remember what happened after his dominant 2011? That's right. He won only 1 slam per year for the next three years at a time where Federer and Nadal were in their most vulnerable...
