    Coria 2005 Rome vs Djokovic 2022 Madrid

    So inspired by @RS I have come up with a hypothetical scenario. So what will happen if 2005 Rome Coria came up against 2022 Madrid Djokovic and played a 10 match H2H series on clay. Is Coria a much tougher opponent or will Djokovic come up victorious in this hypothetical? As you can guess my...

    Rome Masters R3: [3] Rafael Nadal vs [13] Denis Shapovalov

    Ok this match has the ingredients to be an error fest as both players are not in very good form. Last year Shapo squandered 2 MPs against Nadal on the same court and gave Nadal a scare at the AO this year. The H2H is Nadal leading 4-1 with Shapo winning their first match. Who you got in this match?

    2022 Madrid Nadal vs 2022 Belgrade Djokovic on clay, who wins?

    It's the battle of 2 old men on the comeback trail who seem to react to shots a full second after their opponents have hit them and miss constantly off both wings, but who wins?

    Nadal has been net UNLUCKY in non-clay slams in his career, not lucky

    Primedal is generally agreed to have been from 2008-2014. In this time... On grass: He didn’t even play at Wimbledon ‘09 through injury, missing the opportunity to play a weaker Federer or Roddick/Murray. He won the 2 Wimbledons either side of this in 2008 and 2010. During his 2012 match...

    Nadal's injury is a blessing in disguise for him

    I am 100% sure that nadal would have played all the big clay court tournaments and would have broken down by RG. Now he is forced to play at most 2 tournaments before RG where most probably he will go out early in one of them them. At this stage a schedule like 2020 where he played only Rome and...

    Did Alcaraz beat Nadal in their practice match/set?

    At Indian Wells (2022) it seems like they might've played a practice set/match and the final point is won by Alcaraz. I know it is not that important, but obviously nobody (especially not Nadal) wants to be beat ever, even if it's a practice set/match. Was anyone there who can say if they did...

    how about Federer vs Nadal 1st Round at Wimbledon??

    The way Rog's dropping points, it seems highly unlikely that he'll be inside top100 by Wimbledon to make it to main draw He'll need a wildcard to enter and organizers, knowing he's a ticking time bomb, may want to cash on the opportunity early and not take any risk. They may set up fedal #5 at...

    Any Fed/Djoko fans here that actually want Nadal to win AO 2022?

    With his QF match set with Shapo, any Fed/Djoko here actually wishing Nadal goes all the way? I do and here are my reasons: For me its simply because he's the player whom I like best among the contenders remaining. IMO the GOAT debate is kinda moot. Yeah, he'd become the guy with the most...
