    Federer 2019 vs Roddick 2009 in Wimbledon final

    Both lost a heartbreaking 5 setter final and both should have won in 4 sets at max. In the previous comparison we saw 2015 Fed vs 2009 Roddick, but I think 2015 fed did not show the mental toughness or physicality to hang for 5 sets in the final whereas 2019 fed did show that. So, lovely...

    Hypothetical; Fed wins 3rd set of USO15 Final does he win in 4 or lose in 5?

    In my opinion this could have been an epic in the making, I think if Fed wins 3rd set of USO15 Final to go 2 sets to 1 up, Nole fights back to win in 5?

    Why isn't it Nadal>Federer right now?

    Everyone touted RG 21 as Nadal's play for GOAT, and since he failed, the consensus is that Nadal is still behind Fed, and will be surpassed by Nole soon. But why is Fed's 20 better than Rafa's? Here are the cards that prove its not. 1. There was no "Nadal" Era, he made the best of it anyway -...

    Novak and Rafa fans, will you miss Federer?

    The slam race is really between your two idols. Obviously the GOAT race is between the two of them as well. (I won't get into other subjective debates; to maintain consistency, slam record holder is GOAT imo + Roger most likely won't end up with it even if he wins another slam) My question is...

    Roger Federer "I know that I will not win Roland Garros" Geneva 2021

    Federer setting low expectations which could be of a benefit, there is a possibility he could ease his way into form and reach the Quarters or Semis at the French Open, in my view he will need to employ the drop shot more frequently and be more aggressive off of his backhand.

    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
