    Why federer behaves like a crazy child when playing delpo??

    I can attest to that fact. Back in 2008 at the US Open I saw a 19 year old Del Potro the first time playing his QF match against Andy Murray live at Arthur Ashe stadium and I was astounded at the ferocity of the Delpo forehand. Each time he connected racquet with ball there was a loud boom, I...

    How long before an American men's player wins a slam?

    If you just add the word South to American then last guy to win is Del Potro. No hope from North America (including Canada) for at least next 30 years or so.

    Federer ranking on a Tennis Ladder

    I didn't say the ladder is played only on clay. I just said, if it were, then Nadal would always be on top no question asked. Also when you mentioned Nadal losing to all those people it was over a span of several years. In general though I would expect Nadal to be on top which is shown by his...

    Federer ranking on a Tennis Ladder

    If there was a concept of ATP Tennis ladder where would Fed consistently rank? In the top rung or a couple of rungs below? The way a tennis ladder works is you play up to two other players in the same rung, and as you keep winning you climb higher until you get to the top. IMO if the world...

    Federer is the next gen

    40s is the new 20s . so when Rog hits 40yr mark he will be like a 20 yr old entering into his 3rd overall peak and aiming to get his 28th grandslam.

    The return of Featherer?

    I'm pretty sure he gifted old Tommy with the match. Probably after being up a set and in the tie-break of the 2nd he may have realized its not worth it and give Tommy a last chance in taking a title before retiring.

    ok this Fedal H2H is now meaningless

    usually 30 yr is an unwritten threshold for tennis athlete beyond which milestones are generally not expected. so yes it is typically the last leg of their career. it's another thing that Fed has managed to elongate it so much. it wasn't supposed to be this way

    ok this Fedal H2H is now meaningless

    that is my and you -- we know that Fed led the charge back against Nadal towards the end. but 20 yrs from now whenever the rivalry is brought up it will be always remembered as Nadal being a bad matchup for Fed and his one and only kryptonite... it's unfair but it's true.

    ok this Fedal H2H is now meaningless

    Fed just keeps winning and winning against Nadal in the twilight of both guys' careers and IMO if they are allowed to play 10 more times Fed may very well overtake him. Unfortunately several years from now when pundits review the H2H stats between them 23 will always be > 14 and no one will...

    Kyrgios vs Ivanisevic - who had the better serve?

    somewhere in these stats height must also be factored in, i.e. all things being equal a 6'11 giant is expected to out-ace a guy who's some 6 foot and change. maybe an inch for inch comparison like they do in MMA (pound for pound) ?

    Kyrgios vs Ivanisevic - who had the better serve?

    this . before his 2001 win Goran reached the Wimby finals three times but couldn't frustratingly close out the championship win before finally doing it against an opponent not named Pistol Pete. He could very well have had 4 Wimbys to his name on the back of his amazing serve!

    Kyrgios vs Ivanisevic - who had the better serve?

    After watching tonight's Miami SF it seems obvious Kyrgios has a great first and second serve, with accurate placement, unpredictability and clutch. However there is one other individual in history with similar height (6'4) who did the same as Kyrgios, perhaps with even better placement, # aces...

    Is 2017 going to be a weaker year than 2006 and 2015?

    I think weaker than 2015 but definitely stronger year than say a 1998 which saw the advent of the faux world #1 Marcelo Rios and the likes of doper Petr Korda winning a grand-slam out of nowhere. Not to mention ascent of players like Alex Corretja who ended winning the YEC on hard-court as a...

    Your Greatest Comeback

    one of my friends was playing a doubles match and him and his partner were up 9-3 in the 10 point tie-breaker in the 3rd. They managed to lose like 8 points in a row to lose the match. So I guess that was the other team's greatest comeback ?

    How many people have seen Federer play in person?

    very nice. I met Aisam personally in Lahore and challenged him to a friendly match (through his sister who was my junior in college). This was back in 1997. Unfortunately he had other commitment but I'm glad because he would have wiped the floor with me since I was probably equivalent to a 4.0...

    How many people have seen Federer play in person?

    saw him win the US Open for the last time in 2008 at the Arthur Ashe stadium beating a young Andy Murray in the final. He wore a red polo with khaki color shots. I didn't have great seats but what I saw it was phenomenal and well worth it!

    Fellow Fat Players!

    I know a 6 feet 280lb african american 4.0 guy , he wouldn't move much but boy was he good at the net. Nothing would go past him, he would just punch the ball back with ease.

    Wawrinka wins in Chennai

    I played cricket after 7 years break some time back and it is not child's play. After bowling 4 overs and batting for 20 min that day, the next day I was sore in places I didn't even know about. My obliques, shoulder muscles, abs, hamstring all were really sore and looked like I had a great workout.
