    Sir Andeh Barron MurrayGOAT OBE is a champion once more!

    This was over a guy who matches his Slam count too. Not some Mickey Mouse title at all.

    Can the significance of this win be overstated? I don't think it can.

    Any Federer fanatics care that Federer may not finish 2019 in Top 3?

    Ranking doesn't matter to me as much as Slams. If he'd converted 40-15, he could be #56 in the world and I'd have been over the moon.

    Djokovic's signature shot

    Right. It's kinda scary. But, that's why tennis is fun. No one does everything perfectly. All of the Big 3 have weaknesses, but they hide them so well with their strengths. Even Federer.

    Djokovic's signature shot

    Statements like these feel really good to say, but the objective facts say that Djokovic is far worse at overheads than his peers. Fedal can not only put away those easy overheads, but they can do it on the backhand side too. Djok's artistry, if anywhere, can be found in his legs. But, not in...

    What is wrong with Thiem?

    That would explain it, since the 2nd serve is clearly his issue. He can't really do that, because he doesn't move that well. That's his real Achilles heel.

    Djokovic's signature shot

    This is why some of us don't love him. No artistry to his game.

    Tsitsipas comments on playing Medvedev - “It’s just boring”

    Sounds a lot like playing against Nadal or Djoker. Good sign for Medvedev, bad sign for the attacking-game enthusiasts like Tsitsipas.

    I always go with the biggest bag possible, that way I can literally put all my gear in it.

    Now I know how Sampras fans feel

    A guy who does jumping fist-pumps, screams "VAMOOOOOOOS" at nearly every point he wins, and engages in endless intimidation tactics throughout the match (which start in the locker room as he sprints by players who are getting dressed) is not "timid"

    Now I know how Sampras fans feel

    Rafa "timid"? OK.

    Are extraordinary events meaningful or just random?

    Sometimes, yeah. I don't call it that most of the time though.

    Nike better be hiding something cool for WTF or something because their winter line is TRULY disappointing, and I am an unapologetic Nike fan

    Only another 30 or so, but I gotta look good. I have a few Fed ones too. They are great in their own way but nothing compares to the Rafa hoodies. The best part is the inner pockets, combined with the double zip...ideal for holding balls during warmups.

    Nike better be hiding something cool for WTF or something because their winter line is TRULY disappointing, and I am an unapologetic Nike fan

    Which one do you have? I'm pissed at myself for not getting the black one. I have the grey AO one, the orange one from clay season, the blue one for RG, and the White Wimbledon one.

    ^Is that really the jacket? That's awful. No double zipper? A far cry from those GOAT Windrunner hoodies of 2015...

    How is Nadal so muscular?

    Do you really need to ask this? The answer has been obvious for a decade.

    Andy Murray is unhappy with the poor attendance at the China Open.

    I was always skeptical about the drive to push F1, tennis, and other sports into China, Russia, and the Gulf States. The money is there, but the traditions aren't. Qataris have just lost their chance to hold an Olympic Games for the foreseeable future after the World Athletics Championships...

    A "bitter" thread

    40-15 literally changed how I watch tennis. It hasn't affected my love for playing the game, but something died in me that day.

    Realistically - Who will win the following slams? Fill in the blanks

    Nadal to win every Slam from here til Wimbledon '21, where he will be upset by the Djok.

    What was the spinal issue?

    Greatest forehand of all time! Not greatest ground game or greatest baseliner.

    It actually happened when Nadal passed him. Nadal kills everything he touches.

    Bicep Tendonitis

    I'm pretty sure that this is what happened to me. I played a crazy match and then this happened. I didn't play for a long time after that, as in years. Part of that was being busy and not having people to play with. But the injury really kept me sidelined for a long time. Just rest it and ice...

    Will we ever have a movie about the big3?

    I think they need their own comic book universe, with each of the 3 getting his own series of films, with the others (as well as supporting cast) making repeated appearances in all of the movies. One massive tie-in with tons of star appeal.

    Federer fans what does Nadal need to do for him to pass Federer in terms of greatness in your eyes?

    Capture the public imagination--which has already been done. Most pundits seem to favor Nadal over Federer, and that's not just since Ned got to 19. It's been that way for going on a decade. "The GOAT can't be the GOAT as he is not even the greatest of his own era" Anyone who does not play...

    The true test of versatility..

    They still decline physically after 26, we just know a lot more than we did then, so we can manage it better.

    Bicep pain/weakness

    You're under-using it, then over-using it. I did this in 2012, beat my Dad for the first time. Played out of my mind...then could barely lift my arm the next day. I couldn't throw or play tennis. Had to learn how to throw left-handed just so I wouldn't go insane. You're not going to like this...

    The true test of versatility..

    That's when it typically reached obvious consensus, but the decline starts at 26 physically speaking. Sampras was washed at 30-31. McEnroe and Borg didn't win any Slams after 26, right?

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    He should have just gotten the first serves in. Djokovic was beaten, ready to go home. If Fed gets the first serve in, even if it was just a dink, all the pressure is on Djok and he likely sails the ball long or wide. Fed's missed serves exposed his nerves and allowed Djok to relax just a...

    The true test of versatility..

    Would be bulletproof logic if all were the same age. Athletes statistically decline after 26 (thanks MLB) so Federer was 'old' in sports terms by 2008.
