    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.

    Best Nadal points in GS finals that he lost..

    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...

    Another record for Roger Federer

    With reaching the SF in this Australian Open, he ties Jimmy Connors with 14 SF in one same GS tournament. Connors reached at least the SF of the US Open in 1974-85, 1987 and 1991, winning in 5 times (1974, 1976, 1978, 1982, 1983). Federer reached at least the SF of the Aus Open in 2004-14 and...

    Grand Slams should alternate days between men's and women's

    i.e. All of men's matches play Monday, the women play Tuesday, and so on and so forth. This will put to rest all the complaints of unequal rest time in between rounds. It will also make it convenient to watch the matches. If I only care about the men's, then I will be able to schedule my day...

    Did AO organizers "fix" Nadal's questionable cakewalk draw?

    Below is my analysis of Nadal’s questionable draw. My hypothesis is that the draw was rigged by the organizers of the Australian Open to increase the chance of Nadal facing #17 Kyrgios (an Australian) in the semifinals, then Federer in the final. Federer, Del Potro, Djokovic and Wawrinka are...

    Tomas Berdych, Underappreciated Competitor

    I see that Tomas Berdych gets a lot of hate on these forums and is generally direspected for being not as mentally strong as the other top players. Some even deride him as a "mug".

    The one thing the AO 09 final lacked to be regarded as the GOAT match

    Few fantastic matches have had as poor a fifth set like the Nadal vs Federer final at the Australian Open in 2009. And few brilliant matches before it, have had four such amazing sets prior to the fifth. To my recollection, I haven't seen a match holding the same quality during the four first...
