    Are we entering a version of the 2001-2003 ATP Era?

    In 2001-2003 there was a vacuum because the Sampras era was over and Hewitt, Gustavo Kuerten and the veteran Agassi among others picked up the pieces somewhat until Federer's ascension to the top, during this period of time there were surprises winning or making finals of high level tournaments...

    What slams/ATPs and stages would you recommend after RG and Wimbledon?

    This year I attended semi finals- male and finale- both female and male of RG and Wimbledon- the men finale. I don't know if I should call it a season or try Paris/Turin when the weather is bad or wait out till clay (and Rafa) season. Right now here it's 15 degrees and raining all the time and I...

    Please recommend me ATP tournaments and its best stages in Europe this and early next year - I'm a Rafa - Big 3 fan/maybe we'll meet up. No hate!

    So it'll be cold until Monte Carlo but I love tennis more than weather (0 degrees in Paris and Turin.. I'm from a colder climate. Not Syberia though :). I'm like "well, it's one of my last chances to see a slam or ATP with x and y". Would you go to early rounds middle rounds or final? My...

    Don’t understand tennis channel

    I was watching the Tsitsipas match. In the second set, tied 4-4. Tennis channel switched to show a women’s match of lower ranked players. Tsitsipas, #5 in the world who has a chance of winning the entire thing is being pushed aside for a women’s match with players who are not even top 20, one of...

    Most impressive ATP player/performance in Q1 2021? (Non Big 3)

    Be honest. Forget the bandwagon talk here; poll is not public for that reason. There's always hype for whoever lifts a trophy most recently, but ask yourself who was the most impressive player to YOU on the ATP circuit from Jan - Mar 2021 outside the Big 3. It could be consistency of results...

    First Lendl, now Ferrer Splits from Zverev

    David Ferrer :: Most Under-rated non grand slam winner

    In my opinion, this guy was the best of the best in the 2nd tier of players outside the big 4 (Fed, Rafa, Djoko, Murray) during the late 2000s and early 2010s. Some significant accolades/results Ferrer posted: General: 20 years on tour, 1999-2019 High of #3 in the world (Top 10 for 292...

    Biggest racquet differences between ATP and WTA

    I'm curious about some of the ways in which racquets (tend to) differ between tours. I'd imagine ATP players generally use heavier racquets w/ higher swingweights, but are there other key differences? Is my assumption about weight even correct? Would love specific player examples, too

    Maximum racquet weight allowed on tour

    I was wondering if there is a maximum weight allowed on tour as there is a maximum racquet length allowed on tour (29 inch). I just want to know if maximum weight is regulated by some one on the WTA, ATP or ITF tour. Thanks.
