    Nadal will win all clay tournaments this year

    Considering the terrible form of all the supposed contenders on clay, it's likely that Nadal will win for the 1st time in his career all the clay tournaments this year (the important ones, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros). Djokovic level and confidence are too low to beat...

    This explains pretty much everything which is going around Novak Djokovic right now

    Pepe is back in the nole box.... That sums up all.. You can pretty much say goodbye to nole 3.0 if pepe stays.... And this time there'll be no hopes of resurgence....

    What is wrong with Djokovic?

    He seems to be in and out, it's not the Djokovic who had the fire in his belly vs Kyle Edmund at Wimbledon last year, he seems like he's going through motions. "It's age brotha" I'm not sure, I guess he's doing the Ron Jeremy of Tennis, rising to the occasion when it matters most. Is he carrying...

    Could FO19 be to Nadal-Djokovic what AO17 was to the Federer-Nadal Slam rivalry?

    At the start of the Aus Open 2017, Rafa was at 14 slams, Roger at 17. If Nadal had won that day, he'd have 15 and within a 2 slam striking distance of Federer. We know the psychological aspects of that rivalry have changed (at least off clay) - as evidenced by Fed's record against Nadal since...

    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...

    Nadal vs Novak - who will leave the bigger impact on the sport?

    This isn’t merely about slam count, although one of them could retire with the slam record. It’s a combination of success, capturing the public imagination with their fitness/playing style/charisma (e.g Borg), highlight wins/losses, example set on and off court etc Who do you think leaves a...

    Fed Fans - two options, which do you choose?

    Fed ends Djokovics slam run at the semifinals of Wimbledon in a 5 set thriller, loses to Zverev in 4 sets in the final, or... Fed battles past Zverev in 4 sets, but loses to Djokovic in the final in 5 sets?

    Federer vs Djokovic - Who is the greater hard court player at this point?

    Both can be argued as the two greatest hard court players in the open era but who is better? Federer has 1 more GS title and WTF title but Djokovic has more masters and a better record against top players. Who is better at this point?

    I can't believe I watched the whole thing

    (on 2x speed) is my clickbait title ;)... Video of men's top 10 rankings every day from 1990 to 2018. For me it was crazy to see how long Agassi lingered and then how dominant Fed and Djoko became respectively during their peak.

    Novak’s third dominant run

    Nole is in the middle of his third dominant run. By dominant run I am focusing on results at the 14 Tier 1 tournaments, or the Big Titles as the ATP calls them. The first run began with AO11. It lasted about 8 months, ending in Cincy 11(edit: meant to say USO11). During that time period Nole...

    Fed, Rafa, Djoker -Who will win 5 GS tournaments after 30th Birthday and who no?

    The current record in the number of GS titles after 30th birthday holds Federer along with Aussie ATGs Laver and Rosewall at number 4. Behind them are Nadal and Djokovic with 3 GS titles. Which Big 3 member reaches 5 GS titles after 30th Birthday, who doesn't and why?

    Minimum number of slams for Nole so as to not disappoint

    If you had said to me last year after the FO that Nole would end his career with three more slams I would have been ecstatic and probably would have thought that was more than I could reasonably expect at the time. But that was then and this is now. Given where we stand today, Nole with 15...

    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)
