    Medvedev will be a threat at Wim2020

    I know he didn’t went further than R3 for the moment at Wimbledon but believe me, this player is gonna be a tough opponent on grass in the years to come. Excellent serve, flat and low bouncy shots, amazing return, good movement. Actually he himself says that grass is his favorite surface and it...

    We want new faces but not these faces

    Almost everyone asks for change in tennis and I agree. But I don’t think most of the players (not talking of Rafa since he is part of the Big3) that still are in contention for the US Open are good for the future of tennis. Dimitrov is 28, Monfils is 34, Schwartzman is 27. Only Medvedev and...

    Top 5 matchs of the season so far

    According to the logic of the ATP, 2 quarters of the season have been played after this Wimbledon. 2 remains. We are « at the middle » of the season. In my opinion, 2019 has been a good season so far, essentially due to the competition induced by the lack of form of Rafa during the clay season...

    Nishikori in Federer Quarter

    Since Wimbledon 2018, the player who has beaten Kei Nishikori in a Grand Slam has always won the title. Djokovic defeated him at Wimbledon 2018 QF, US Open 2018 SF, Australian Open 2019 QF and Nadal beated him at RG 2019 QF. Federer fans, you know what that means :sneaky:

    Pre Wimbledon State of Art

    Nadal will win all clay tournaments this year

    Considering the terrible form of all the supposed contenders on clay, it's likely that Nadal will win for the 1st time in his career all the clay tournaments this year (the important ones, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros). Djokovic level and confidence are too low to beat...

    Khachanov, Medvedev, Rublev = Tsonga, Monfils, Gasquet ?

    Khachanov, Medvedev and Rublev are all promising young players. It reminds me of the French 10 years ago when Tsonga, Monfils and Gasquet were also full of promises. Unfortunately, these guys never won Grand Slams. Do you think the Russians will follow the same way ? My opinion is that they...

    Masters 2018 Line-up

    With DelPotro out for injury and Nadal probably out too (I don't see him taking risks for 2 tournaments he never won and he isn't likely to win), this is probably gonna be the 8 players of the Masters this year. 1. Djokovic 2. Federer 3. Zverev 4. Cilic 5. Anderson 6. Thiem 7. Nishikori 8...

    What's wrong in Zverev's game ?

    I just watched the highlights of his match against Kohlschreiber and I don't understand why his game is not working. The guy has a monster backhand, an irregular but heavy forehand, a good serve etc... His game could be like Cilic's but him doesn't work. Do you have serious explanations ? I...

    Breakthroughs of past champions

    Remembering Shapovalov's breakthrough at Montreal last year, I was wondering, when did it happen for Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and others ? When did the world noticed that Novak was going to be a champion for example ?

    Where can I have proper highlights of Nadal/DelPotro ?

    I couldn't watch the match yesterday and thought I would find highlights of 15/20 minutes on YouTube as usual. But I can only find the highlights made by the Wimbledon account which last 3minutes for a match of 5 hour... It's a shame. So do you know where can I find the entire match or better...
