    Is Thiem going through Murrayslamfinallossitis?

    Ever since his French Open loss to Nadal, Thiem has been in a rut, he looks low on confidence, his game is even more erratic. Murrayslamfinallossitis is my term for when you loss in a slam final then have a slump in form afterwards ala Andy Murray when he lost in the Australian Open in 2010/2011...

    Prime Nadal vs Prime Sampras at the French Open - Only Sampras Serves - Who Wins?

    A theoretical matchup between Prime Nadal and Prime Sampras at Roland Garros, but Sampras serves every game. As a Federer and Nadal fan, I think these two have gone a level beyond the Sampras league, but to be fair we could have seen that years ago when Federer played Sampras at Wimbledon and...

    Insane Tennis Match from Baby Rafa

    Look at Rafas movement here. Back when the era was stronger and wasn't dominated by a bunch of old players.

    French Open 2018 semifinal :- Dominic Thiem[7] vs M. Cecchinato

    The most consistent player in this era about one aspect :- rafael nadal

    Yes. The most consistent player in time violations.. More than 25s b/w serve points on a regular basis. To umpires and ATP/ITF I will say only onr thing :- what's the use of rules if you're not going to implement them? Just because you're afraid of top players....... P.S. :- The poll question...

    French Open 2018 R3 :- Novak Djokovic[20] vs R.Bautista Agut[13]

    Djokovic trying to comeback from the very depth of his fall. Lowest ranking since many years. And so many losses to mugs, probably his worst start to a season in a long long time (atleast till rome masters started) Looking in average form (neither best nor worst). Will he pull out a win against...

    Which titles should/could Nadal have lost?

    I personally believe Nadal *could* have lost 2011 if he had played Djokovic instead of Federer in the final. But still unlikely. In 2014 I felt Nadal *should* have lost the title. He was playing quite miserably right through the clay season perhaps affected by his loss to Stan Wawrinka in the...

    Stan the man is back

    Stan the man will be back at Madrid Open. Now this is one man I have faith in. Who do you find solace in these difficult times? This desert of clay is thirsty for a shower of Swiss Milk and as the mighty Fed is serving the third world in Africa the universe now demands his brother to stand up to...

    Yeehaw! Clay season has arrived

    ...and not a moment too soon. I shift over to clay myself next three months. Enjoy hard courts and indoors but LOVE clay: Too bad my favourite isn’t playing, but here’s to an awesome clay season for everyone!

    If nadal fails to win French open this year and federer wins wimbledon and/or Us open, then?........

    Most likely the slam race will be over for ever, atleast in this era. What to say friends? As if rafa won't win this FO, he will struggle throughout the 2018, and even if it does not happen, Nadal has not been successful in defending a hard court title, throughout the span of his respectable...

    When will Roger win his 21st slam?

    Am guessing Wimbledon is the BEST slam to do it for he is the grass king. I am only afraid of Novak because of his nervy matches but I say he iss a lock, I dont see anyone in the field taking 3 sets from Roger, but who knows may be he will pull off french if nads out early, Declaration:The...

    Grand Slams should alternate days between men's and women's

    i.e. All of men's matches play Monday, the women play Tuesday, and so on and so forth. This will put to rest all the complaints of unequal rest time in between rounds. It will also make it convenient to watch the matches. If I only care about the men's, then I will be able to schedule my day...

    RG '08 Rafa vs Nole

    RG '08 is best known for its one sided, embarrassing loss of Fed against PEAKdal on clay. But the real gem in that tournament in Rafa vs Nole. The first 2 sets are a blowout. Nole comes to life in the 3rd, coming back from down a break and going toe to toe with the greatest Nadal we have seen...

    Best Editions of each Major since 2004

    I'm not really a poster (I usually just follow and read threads I like), but given all the repetitive threads on a single player, a single event, or the No1 ranking recently, I thought I should try to change things up and bring back some nostalgia. In light of the recent two borefests at RG and...

    Tomas Berdych, Underappreciated Competitor

    I see that Tomas Berdych gets a lot of hate on these forums and is generally direspected for being not as mentally strong as the other top players. Some even deride him as a "mug". I completely disagree with this, and believe that Tomas Berdych is a completely worthy player who has done well to...

    Why do clay courts provide so many bagels and one sides sets?

    I've always wondered why the clay season provides so many one sided sets, and is the surface with the highest probability for a bagel. What is the single biggest reason? I'm currently thinking it's mainly down to the slowing down of the court speed, thus rendering fast serves less effective -...
