    Fed post match shoes @ Acapulco

    Anyone catch Federer's shoes he had on during the Acapulco trophy presentation? All white with a pull tab on the back. Don't look like Nike unless they're a commemorative hundred title shoe. Tennis Channel didn't show him during the sit down post match. Haven't watched alot of tennis since...

    Federer: The reason I passed Sampras was surface homogenization

    One of the big myths perpetuated by Fed fanatics is that surface homogenization hindered, rather than helped Federer. The great man himself now dispels this idea: ---- Q. Do you think your record of 20, numbers of weeks at the top, are threatened by Djokovic or Nadal? ROGER FEDERER: Since 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?

    Top 10 1990 to now

    Stumbled upon a cool video today. I didn't follow pro tennis until the last 10-ish years, so it was really neat to see who the top players were outside of the very highest few who get talked about.

    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.

    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?

    "Weak Draws" (and the like) - What's Your Solution?

    I'm seeing all these threads - and replies - built around the idea of "weak draws". Most of these have been directed against Nadal . There also seems to be a line of thinking that the powers-that-be have somehow conspired against Federer - arguably, the most popular player ever on the ATP...

    When was the last time we saw Prime Federer?

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, it has been amazing watching these two over the years. Federer's game around 2007 was just pure art, his movement and strokes are a bit more industrious now as oppose to artistic (but it had to be done to let him play on). Nadal now hitting more aggressively and...

    Will Roger be able to outlast Rafa one last time in the biggest face-off of their careers?

    No, I'm not talking about the USO, or even a slam. I was thinking about this yesterday after reading an article where Roger praised Rafa for his tenacity: We're familiar with all their past trysts pre-AO17 - Roger in the lead, Rafa doggedly wearing him down until Roger loses his nerve and lo...
