    Thiem has the potential to dominate

    As a Federer and Nadal fan I feel very lucky to have watched these two who I rate as the two greatest of all time. It all culminated in the final of Wimbledon 2008 which was a match beyond anything, I mean compare the speed, shot making, intensity, timing etc of Wimbledon 2008 and Wimbledon 2019...

    Djokovic is the only one, who can save men's tennis

    Federer's chances of keeping a record in the number of GS titles are lost after the 2019 US Open final.

    Think of it this way, if not for Fedovic...

    ... rafa would be bidding for CYGS at this year' US open. I certainly don't think Pouile/Meddy or Agut/Goffin/Ninja were gonna beat him at Australian open or Wimbledon. Rafa has never been so consistently close, yet so far from CYGS..

    Big 3 in american doubles. Who wins?

    American dubs between the big 3. Best of 5 maybe? 2 v 1 rotating. Etc etc Who would win on score? Who would win morally? I think Fed would destroy them, and prove that he is actual and moral superior of the 3.

    Rafael Nadal :- I do not have any advantage over Either of Federer or Djokovic

    This is from his latest USO19 press conference. Weird, isn't it? Why is rafa so low on confidence? Considering the fact that he beat one of these guys in straight sets 3, 4 & 2 just 10 weeks ago & bageled the other 12 weeks ago. Humble Spaniard once again.

    Nadal first since Lendl to win 20 titles on both clay and hard
