    The boggling thing in the Murray vs Federer H2H

    The last time Murray and Federer played was in 2015 but something happened between 2013/2014. Murray beat Federer in the semi finals of the Australian Open in 2013 in 5 sets and extended his H2H lead 11-9 however something changed and I believe it has something to do with Federer playing more...

    Why have ATP 100 players become three years older over the last three decades?

    Some data goes a long way to show this stark trend but how did it come to that? Of course we know that teenager are far away from peak performance but the strength of the trend surprises!

    An analysis of Forehand greatness

    https://www.bandytennis.com/post/forehand-theory-developing-a-virtuous-swing-path After my Musetti post, I sat down yesterday and quickly threw out what a forehand needs, and what it doesn't. Greatness requires gravity and minimal wrist movement to allow SW maximization. Discuss

    The breakdown of first ranking protection

    Firstly I have to mention that this analysis shouldn’t be taken 100% seriously. Some players decided to skip certain events due to the format and we can’t know for sure what outcome it would give us. It’s possible that I may have missed some events so if you spot a mistake please mention it. I...

    Australian Open 2008, but the semifinals are reversed, what happens?

    Say we have Nadal-Federer and Djokovic-Tsonga in the semifinals. Who would you favour in each match, who would win the potential final afterwards? To spice it up, let's presume Nadal plays better, since he was a bit shellshocked against Tsonga and severely underperformed, but this time he gets...

    Ljubicic should have been Federer's coach during 2014-16

    Federer had so many opportunities to win slams in this period (3 Final, 1 SF). He lost them all to Djokovic. He was in great shape and easily the second best player in the world during this phase. I believe he would have won at least a Wimbledon had he not been coached by Edberg but by Ljubicic...
