    Best Fedal 3-set match?

    This was inspired by the thread for Djokodal. While the Fedal rivalry is better known for its five-setters, there are also some underrated three-set gems. Which one is your favorite of them all? EDIT: I guess this could include straight-set Slam matches but I don't see how anyone would consider...

    Who will be Djokovic's main rival in the year 2021 and beyond?

    So Djokovic could possibly equal Federer's slam tally in a few years (still a big if), but who will be the biggest obstacle facing him in the year 2021 and beyond? I think Felix will most likely be the biggest obstacle for Djokovic once he gets into the top 10. IF there is someone I left out...

    Analysis of Federer-Nadal match by Craig O’Shannessy

    Djokovic's strategy coach makes some good points and it's interesting to see how he works using previous matches as a model. He bases his points on Nadal and Federer's Wimbledon run this year and last year. For Djokovic he implies that not a lot has changed since 2015...

    A federer-nadal match this year - 2018

    I think the chances are too low. Last year, 3 of their 4 meetings were in the first half of the season (AO17 final, IW17 R4, Mia17 final) and the 4th was in october, Sha17 final. This year, first half has gone without a fedal match. Nadal skipped almost full HC season of the 1st quarter of the...

    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...

    2017 would be remembered for...

    Nadal's historic La Decima at Roland Garros. Roger F winning record 8th Wimbledon. Oldest year end number 1 of the Open Era. Longevity. The "No Excuses" Grand Slam final won by F. "Claydal" winning his third US Open clay court title. Dimitrov peaks on a tennis court to win the...

    Can't we all just get along?

    If they like each other and think each other awesome - why would we disagree with either of them? Sure, debate is fun, but I call for respect all around and no more trolly-trash. CAUSE LOOK:

    Who will be ATP YE#1 in 2017?

    Straight up fight between Fedal. Federer does far better than Nadal in this part of the season usually, but will his fitness play a role this time? It will be even more difficult if Nadal manages to win the USO. Fed has announced that he intends to play a full schedule- so 2 more Masters, Basel...

    Choose the biggest beatdown by Roger against Rafa

    Personally I choose the Masters 2011 RR match because it was a strong Nadal and a semideclined Federer without the better and bigger BH with Ljubicic.
