    It’s crazy but it feels like Federer is out of the slam race

    Seems like a 2 man race right now with Rafa a heavy favorite with a 3 slam lead. Short of Medvedev proving he can maintain or improve his level and going on a tear... more Novak/Rafa slams are coming

    Fed has a chance to secure his legacy Sunday

    I believe Sunday is the most important match Federer will play for the rest of his career. Here’s why: - Nadal is coming. Fed’s win over Rafa Friday was huge because had Rafa proceeded to upset Djoker in the Wimbh final, Rafa would have almost certainly surpassed Fed’s 20 slams. Tho Djoker is...

    It’s unfair that Krygios has to play these less talented guys...

    Why does NK have to labor thru these lesser talents that take advantage of his boredom and sneak in upset after upset after upset.... NK is too talented to play these low ranked mugs who keep beating him mercilessly... He can’t showcase his true talent bc they’re not good enough to let him...

    Is Fed's decision to play Clay this year a sign of impending retirement?

    Skipped clay season the last 2 years. Hasn't done anything relevant on clay since Stan stomped him in the RG SF years back. Now he's suddenly going to play RG. Is this because: a) He wants to give himself every slam chance possible in his remaining years? b) Privately he knows this is his...

    InB4 all the Retirement threads...

    I know the bandwagon is huge so I'm not talking to the legit fans or the serious tennis fans. I'm talking to the fans that post 20 terrible threads after an upset. Just stop. The guy will retire when he feels like it. He owes you nothing. He'll do what he wants. Your opinion doesn't matter...

    Does anyone understand the whole Fed losing in practice sets thing?

    These tales of dudes who can beat Fed in practice and then he stomps them in the real thing.... what’s the deal? Is Fed playing super loose? Trying different tactics? Not really trying? Rope-a-doping them?

    Wheres the "Djokovic has no weapons" crowd today?

    I shoulda made a list. So many posters claiming that he was done b/c he had lost a little quickness and didn't have the offensive groundstrokes to make up for it. Anyone gonna own up to it after he just won the tourney that rewards offense the most?

    Who was the better prospect? Delpo or Zev?

    injuries have rendered Del Po into a big “what if?” Did he look more talented than Zev early on?

    Just watched Rafa v. Thiem @ MC, what are everybody’s thoughts about Wimbledon? Who’s the favorite after Fed? Cilic? Will Fed feel pressure to win Wimbledon to bump the slam gap back up to 4? Will Djoker have a chance at Wimbledon? Side note: Rafa is about 1-2 years away from shaving his head.

    FH inconsistency HELP!

    My forehand is in the garbage right now. (Preface: I hit with a straight arm FH, E grip). I *think* the problem is that I'm trying to add too much TS and I'm snapping my wrist at contact and its causing the racket face to be wildly inconsistent at contact. Directional control is OK but my...

    Djokovic’s groundstrokes are DIALED IN right now

    He demolished Ramos with his trademark side to side accuracy. DTL, cross court, didn’t matter he hit every spot. Ramos was desperately running a marathon all match. Point after point ended with either an easy winner to open court or Ramos desperately banging the side of his racket on a ball from...

    Age of Ultron 2: Wrath of the Serbian King (An Unexpected Journey to OZ)

    #Prayers4TheElbow He looked good yesterday. If he makes a run come celebrate it here! (If he gets bounced by Monfils tomorrow let’s just pretend this thread never happened) btw: is it a bad omen that Murray isn’t here to play the whipping boy in a potential final? WTH Murray, you had ONE job!

    Switched from SemiWestern to Eastern Forehand

    There are so many threads out there about people switching TO SW from E FH, I just wanted to say that I did the opposite and it has been a godsend. My hitting partner is a 4.5 and he's always been better than me. He is a former high school first singles player who hits E FH with heavy topspin...

    Fed's 2017 season ended in Canada...

    He was working the schedule brilliantly until that point. Peaking when it mattered, picking his spots. For the life of me I'll never understand why he went to Canada this year.

    Silent Partner Ball Machine (Edge Lite)

    Just wanted to drop a quick +1 for Silent Partner's Edge Lite ball machine. Got it 2 weeks ago and completely love it. Spending +$700 on your hobby can be a gut check but man was it worth it. It has more speed and spin than you could possibly need unless you're breaking into Futures events...

    Where'd the Kyrgios hype train go?

    Its too much work to go back and bump the 5 Kyrgios threads from 2 weeks ago where I pointed out he can't get out of the 2nd round of a slam this year... We heard how he's faster than Djoker and Rafa... How is endurance is totes not a problem... Can we finally agree to stop hyping this 1...
