    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.

    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.

    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...

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

    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...
