    Who will eventually have more titles - Federer in Wimbledon or Djokovic on Australian Open?

    vs. They both holder of all-time record at their best GS tournament. Now Federer has one extra title in Wimbledon than Djokovic at the Australian Open, but Djoker is 6 years younger and has better prospects to raise his record number. But of course this is not a guarantee, that his AO record...

    Medvedev ...a modern day Miloslav Mecir?

    For those who recall Miloslav (The Big Cat) Mecir, do you also see any similarities in Medvedev? Long, languid vibe...not exactly the same style, but smooth, unrushed and effective. Also, not much body fat on display with Djokovic-Medvedev. (posting on very little sleep)

    The Day Djokovic Terrorized His Opponent! If Djoko plays like this there's no one stopping him. Maybe he's the outsider to win Wimbledon this year after all. Seeing this video makes a believer out of even me.

    This is a mighty fine collection of points that show Nadal's fighting spirit even at the brink of losing. This is what it takes to beat Nadal at the tail end of a slam! Nuff said!

    Roger Federer 20th Slam Tribute

    I came across this video today - perhaps the BEST tribute video I've ever seen for Federer. If you don't have the time to watch all 20 minutes, the TL;DR is: watch from 12:45 to 13:39 and again from 17:53 to the end. You'll definitely watch the whole video after that. Turn up the volume...

    Grand Slam winners - AO not included

    As far as i know, from 1970 to 1982 AO was a "minor" tournament, not even close to FO, W, USO. Top players used to skip it most of times. Therefore when comparing Grand Slam titles of 70-82 players and current players, we should not take into acount AO. (However, when comparing total wins of...

    Wozniacki or Halep? - Poll and Discussion

    Wozniacki or Halep? I personally would like to see Halep win because she lost a heartbreaker to Ostapenko last year in the French Open Final, and she can hit a winner off of both sides (while Wozniacki's forehand has very little conviction behind it), but with a 15-13 third set against Davis and...
