    I don't like Andy Murray's forehand, attitude on court and 2nd serve and he's not an ATG.

    I said it, do I need to make loaded questions to obfuscate my dislike for certain elements of Andy Murray's game? And the fact he is not an All time great? Why don't people stop massaging the areola and get to the pinching the nipple? IE Get to the point. It's not I dislike Murray personally...

    Tomic skipping rest of year

    Short of ludicrous appearance fees or other monetary advance this is inevitable or he's about to become a big hypocrite if he does anything other than count his millions. :sneaky:

    Mury's career is actually stellar

    On the surface his numbers don't look great. But under the microscope of the EYE TEST, it is very deflated and underrated. He had one great season - 2016. And he didn't even need to last the whole year to assert his dominance. His "zone" magic was gone only because of injury. His other "ATG"...

    Friendly Reminder & 20 Highlights of Magic by GOAT

    Isner's face tells it all on his first highlight. Even Djokovic was across the net as witness many times. What I took away from this was Federer was extremely fast pre-2010.

    AO’20 2R Men’s Singles: (3) R Federer (SUI) vs F Krajinovic (SRB)

    Evening RLA match (possibly to give Krajinovic more time to recover) featuring 6x AO champion vs the #41 (live) 27-year-old playing his fourth AO MD (3-3 career). Rooferer got a big advantage by completing his Monday match while Krajinovic struggled today to win a 7-5 fifth set after blowing a...

    Why are streaks important?

    I should begin the thread by stating outright that I’m a Nadal fan and hence biased towards appreciating his achievements over Federer and Djokovic. Recently, we have threads emphasising a player’s winning streaks over a particular surface/tournament/group of opponents. What confuses me is why...

    For lefties! Watch Federer / Djokovic as lefties (or watch Nadal / Shapovalov as righties)

    Hi, tennis friends! I'm left-handed, and I've always wanted to watch Federer and Djokovic as lefties. So I created this simple and free Chrome extension that mirrors videos so that righties -> lefties and lefties -> righties. When watching players in my handedness, I see little things that I've...

    For some people today Wimbledon Final would mean Federer will always be considered the GOAT for what he was able to do at his age against the other two greatest legends of tennis, 5 and 6 years younger. The final numbers won't matter for most Federer fans if they are close at the end. The other...

    Mathematical Model for Total Grand Slams if Federer, Nadal or Djokovic Didn't Play Tennis

    I have often wondered how many Grand Slams Federer/Nadal/Djokovic would finish with if the other two didn't play tennis. More often than not it seems like the roadblock to each winning a title is having to play one of the other two. I got to thinking that surely this could be estimated with a...

    Sum Elo score over career?

    I'd be interested to see players' greatness ranked by summing Elo scores over their career. For example a hypothetical player with an 52-week career would have a score of Elo1 + Elo2 + Elo3 + ... + Elo52 where EloX is the Elo score in the Xth week of their career. However, there may be a need...

    Another massive moment?

    That may be the second major match in two days where one of the big three simply didn’t look capable of beating a much younger opponent. We’ve all seen it in the old days with Rosewall against Connors, McEnroe against Agassi, Agassi against Nadal, Federer against Zverev. Matches where, no...
