    Odds of Djokovic (now) winning the CYGS is ...

    My understanding of statistics is limited, but let's look at this way. My personal opinion of whether I'm rooting for Novak to complete it or not (which would be the first since Laver in '69 - the first full year of the Open Era) is irrelevant. Djokovic has already, of course won the AO and RG...

    David Ferrer :: Most Under-rated non grand slam winner

    In my opinion, this guy was the best of the best in the 2nd tier of players outside the big 4 (Fed, Rafa, Djoko, Murray) during the late 2000s and early 2010s. Some significant accolades/results Ferrer posted: General: 20 years on tour, 1999-2019 High of #3 in the world (Top 10 for 292...

    Best Grand Slam Finals in History???

    Some of you may have read(and disagreed) with my list of worst grand slam finals in history. Here's my list of the best. Again keep in mind that I did not watch much tennis pre-2000: 10: US Open 2009: Just such a good high quality groundstroke match. An absolutely worthy final. 9: Wimbledon...

    Worst Grand Slam Finals in history???

    I'll start this off, but keep in mind, I haven't watch much tennis before 2000: #10: Australian Open 2020. It wasn't necessarily a terrible match, but it was just so underwhelming based on what was expected by the way they moved through the draw. #9: Australian Open 2003. This was just an...

    Fed at AO: Easiest Path to a Grand Slam Semi Ever?

    What will be the final result of Sascha Zverev on the 2019 US Open?

    Again, we have here a question of how far Sascha will advance on the GS tournament. He equaled in this year his best result so far, when he advanced into QF on RG (lost with Djoker), but in another GS tournaments his maximum is 4R, at the US Open even only 3R. Will this year's US Open change...

    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...

    If Nadal gets to within two Grand Slams of Federer, will he inevitably overtake him?

    This Open could be a big tournament, if Rafa manages to win, and he's got a great chance of going deep with the draw he's had it'll be the first time ever he's within two grand slams of Roger. The way i see it, if it happens is one of two things: 1) Roger finds early 2017 form and wins another...

    Thiem or A. Zverev, who wins a slam first?

    Both of these guys will win a grand slam sometime in the next 4 years, possibly sooner. So who do you think wins one first? I go with Thiem winning RG before Zverev wins his first slam (USO). Give your opinions.

    Lucas Pouille has the game to win multiple Grand Slams

    Someone who has flown under everyone's radar is Lucas Pouille. Watching his game he is silky smooth from the back of the court, able to hit winners at will off both wings. I think the result against Nadal is just the start of things to come for him, he won Vienna last year and has already been...
