    Apparently Rafa is trying very hard to prove his capably outside of Roland Garros, but

    he is likely to be worn out by the Russian, losing in the Final and then hurting his bigger plan of evening/exceeding 20...

    Post RG and pre-Wimbledon overlook

    So Djoker is extremely happy at the moment and this happiness could be a huge momentum leading him to a more impressive achievement with this Wimbledon and even further in August at Flushing Meadows. Federer, on the other hand, has been sitting somewhere drinking coffee, taking a peek at the...

    How many more times would it take for Roger to overcome Nole for his #18?

    I guess the question behind is who will become the second Big Four member to phase out?

    Re-evaluation of Roger's chance at 2015 RG...

    With such an easy cruise through the first week, and three max. to manage for the second; with the interesting top half draw in the first place, now Roger's chance at RG has changed...

    Rafa and 2015 Roland Garros…

    We may expect exceptional effort and/or unexpectedly good performance from Rafa in the next two weeks, as he knows perfectly that what he could make in these two weeks will set the tone of his following two years. Rafa, not Nole, not Roger, not Andy, nor anybody else, therefore is the most...

    While Murray’s defensive approach helped him secure a spot in Big Four,

    and gained him a couple GS’s, this technique now seems to be more of a hindrance than a facilitator to his further achievement. Murray’s adherence to baseline and lack of motivation of taking advantage of all-court when chances are there puts him at a quite disadvantageous position when playing...

    Mentality aspects of current top players…

    Nole: he is on the top of it right now; besides, his being aware of the more or less mentality instability issues of his current fellow competitors will enhance his chance to reach 12 GS’s and beyond; yes he is 27 and blahblah, but who else in his current peer is able to stop him otherwise...

    Roger Federer may sketch another scene for us to enjoy...

    Now everyone sees what Roger has done this year. The performance may seem phenomenal at first sight, especially when one thinks of it accomplished at this age and being distinctive in comparison to his last year's. However, Roger had been on a "comfort zone" since last August when he slipped...

    Coco Vandeweghe, where is her confidence?

    This lady can play tennis and she took Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic in a raw in Montreal, but why she is so lack of confidence on court?

    Aga radwanska, what does she indicates to her fellow WTA players?

    Aga's biggest weapon is mentality/composure and that has helped her stay at #3 for quite a while until recently surpassed by Halep and Kvitova. She teaches other WTA players, especially those bullet emitters, that acquiring this quality without changing anything else, you can make it farther...

    When Roger Federer will trully be appreciated again...

    The title may sound ridiculous at first sight in light of the facts that this entire forum is about him (and Rafa of course), that he is being considered as GOAT by many and many, and that the questioning of his GOATship is in a sense a simultaneous appreciation of the GOATship... People made...

    Nole will be the highlight for the next couple years...

    Has he shown physicality degradation? Has he been affected by the wedding? Will he be affected by his soon-to-be fatherhood? Roger Federer said that it's "hard to get rid of all four guys at the same time...", and I think he meant a lot about Nole as the very one who is capable of...

    Roger Federer's chance at 2014 US Open...

    Roger's 2014 performance so far has shown that 2013 was simply his down time, back, racket adjustment, or whatever reasons unknown to us, and that he is capable of competing for Slams. On the other hand, a quick finish of the first 6 rounds seems particularly important in increasing his chance...

    Nick Kyrgios, what do you see in him?

    FH, BH, serve, attitude, movement, concentration, versatility, mentality, free mind... Can't say much in specific for now, but sort of seeing a bit of combination of both Roger's and Rafa's strengths in this young gentleman's game and style...

    Similarity/disimilarity between the 14 AO and 14 MC finals...

    Stan defeated two GOATs (still in debate) and both matches have revealed his current indisputable edge; Rafa lost and got injured, and he had no chance in that match; Roger lost but healthy, he had his chance but missed, and then couldn't make up as his level of play was surpassed by...

    Swiss Duet will sing high pitch for how long before the curtain came down?

    The show has started since Roger joined Davis Cup. Now with Stan's whole new perspective on soft soils and Roger's back to his competitive form on virtually all surfaces, I have started seeing the Swiss take most of the finalist positions for the rest of the GS's of this year... Yet, the...

    Who surprised you the most, Nole, Rafa, or Roger?

    Yes I am talking about Monte Carlo... - It was Nole to me (but still believe he would be the most productive one of the Big Four for 2014); - Roger surprised me as well by the way he managed his old trouble who is always capable of shielding Roger's inspirational game by playing in a similar...

    Jana Cepelova, the time when she upgrades her serve to 100+,

    is the time when she cracks top 10. Only 21-year old, manipulative drop shots, solid ground stroke, the way she plays when down (most recently at South Carolina), all seem to support this hypothesis... Current ranking: 78 2013 94 2012 107 2011 218 2010 508
