    Federer will meet and beat Nadal at the French Open SF

    I created a thread with this title on May 1st. But recently discovered it has been deleted, I don't know why. I explained my reasons why Fed will beat him, but I can't find my original post and don't feel like writing it all again as it was quite a long post. Anyway, the draw is set and Fed is...

    A pictographical comparison of Top 3 performances at the slams

    I wanted to see the spread of slam performances lined up side by side for these guys. Interesting to see who their slam careers compare graphically in a timeline. (still working on a better table aligned by year...) I will add comments on what stood out to me. Leave your impressions too

    2014, 2015 or 2016 : which season was better ?

    Hi mates. I was watching some matches of the last seasons this week and I was wondering which season have fans appreciated the most. For me, these 3 seasons have a lot in common, marking the end of the prime of the Big 4. Here is what I think are the highlights of each season, for you to...

    Winning 100% of first serve points in a match

    How often does this type of thing happen? I am sure it must happen, but probably exceedingly rare in finals? Can anyone list some examples besides Federer vs. Isner at Miami Final in 2019? Also, what examples are there of a higher percentage of points won on serve than 32/35 = ~91.4% in a match?

    John Isner has won heart today....

    I really admire this guy's gamesmanship and sportsmanship... Did manage to take it to the last point, Even if he couldn't move, he didn't give up or retire from the match. You've made me your fan, big Johnny... Wishing you quick recovery and a very good season ahead... (Coming from a fed fan)

    Miami Masters 2019 4th Round :- Maestro [4] vs Mad Lad Medvedev [14]

    Pretty interesting match up. I think medvedev will have an advantage given its a slow court and night session match. What do you guys think?? Btw, match starts approx. at 6:30 a.m. IST (Gladly, I'll be able to watch it during gym hours :):):) )... Edit :- Now its a day session

    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...

    Indian Wells Masters 2019 R3 :- Federer v/s Wawrinka

    Match of the tournament so far surely.. Fed came of a tricky 6-1 7-5 match in 2nd round, whereas wawrinka survived a scare against Martin fuscovics 6-4 6-7 7-5....

    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...
