    Fed Thread (Appreciative): Which is his most impressive record?

    Of Roger's numerous milestones, records and accomplishments, which (to you) is his single most impressive? You're not restricted to these - in no particular order: 20 slam titles (and possibly growing - I wouldn't count him out) 3 slam titles since turning age 35 (and growing?) 10 consecutive...

    Best SET in a tennis match ever played

    In my opinion, the 3rd Set played between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal - 2011 US Open Final is the best SET in a tennis match ever played till date. Reasons: Both players playing at their best and to their limits at the same time! Jaw dropping rallies, court coverage and defense Extreme...

    What does Nole need to win in 2018 to match Nadal's 2017?

    In 2017 Nadal won two slams, two masters, reached one other slam final and two other masters finals. He finished first with 10645 points. Nole so far this year has won two slams and one master and is 4200 points behind where Nadal finished 2017. With 4500 points left in Tier 1 tournaments what...

    Is it time to have separate majors for the men and women?

    With Serena Williams calls of sexism, and seemingly, some male players agreeing with her, is it time to separate the men and women completely? Adjust the calender accordingly. Been done before. Each tour could employ it's own officials: address it's own prize money: separate sponsorship/tv...

    Buggy Whip Forehand

    Why does Rafa predominately use a buggy whip forehand, and with many people considering his forehand one of the greatest shots in tennis, why is it that we don't see others using this technique as much?

    Big 3 - each with 20 GSs

    What do you think if this happens by the time all Big 3 are retired, what would be repercussions for the tennis world and tennis history? How would it be decided who the true GOAT is? And imagine situation where all have 20 but Nadal and Djoko are still playing and are near the end of their...

    Predict Your Top 5 for Year-End (#1)

    Looking at the updated Race to London numbers (if accurate on ATPWorldTour...), the list now seems to be: 1. Nadal - 7480 2. Djokovic - 6445 3. del Potro - 4910 4. Federer - 4800 5. Zverev - 4365 ... So, what will be the Top 5 at year's end? There are lots of variables, obviously primarily...

    The Slam Race is drawing to a close

    This USO was crucial for Rafa in his quest to overtake Federer. Now the difference between them remains 3 GS, the same since 2014. I know Rafa can still win a couple more RGs(at max) and maybe eke out a USO going ahead, but I don't see him catch Federer, here on. The field is getting tougher and...

    My Favorite Player is Better Than Yours...

    My favorite player is better than yours and I believe all of the following (and more): 1. I will start with that assumption, and then find stats and reasoning (however tenuous, inconsistent or shaky) to support this. 2. I will derive self-esteem from this player's accomplishments (and accept...

    Khachanov - Nadal: Instant Classic or...

    I had a feeling that Khachanov would not be an easy opponent for Nadal, but I didn't expect it to be this tight -- about as competitive as a 4-set match can be. While not flawless, it did feature some amazing shots and rallies. Tons of drama: It's hard to rate it below an A-minus. As for...

    What are the most UNDERRATED aspects of each of The Big 3?

    Federer: Intangibly, I don't think he's given enough credit for being the fighter that he is. You don't stay at/near the very top for so long without this. More tangibly, while he doesn't like to play defense, he does it extremely well when called upon. His timing and racket skill is so...

    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...

    Who should be considered the US Open Fave - Rafa or Novak?

    If Fed is still the #3 favorite (not sure who's 4th...Delpo? Stan? Tsitsipas?), is there a better case for Nadal or Djokovic as the #1 favorite? Rafa - #1 in the Rankings, #1 in the Race Defending Champion Has won USO 3 times (4 finals) Revenge Factor if he...

    If THE BIG 3 is the best trio ...

    ...of contemporary players to ever play (with three great rivalries among Fed, Rafa and Novak), who do you consider to be the next best trio? Or if you think another trio was even better, state your case.

    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. As a Federer and Nadal fan, I think these two have gone a level beyond the Sampras league, but to be fair we could have seen that years ago when Federer played Sampras at Wimbledon and...

    Guess at which age each of The Big 3 retire.

    Select an option for each. I'm guessing Fed 39, Nadal 39+ and Djokovic 34-37. I think Fed will be play out all of next year and consider calling it quits at the US Open 2019. Ideally he would pull a Sampras and call it a career going out on top but I have a hard time imagining him being...

    The Big 3 as competition to the pro tour?

    I suspect that once Fed, Nadal and Djokovic decide to retire there's a good chance they will decide to continue playing in the Champions tour or maybe just play exhibitions amongst themselves. Given how weak and boring most of the players that follow them are wouldn't many prefer to see a 45...

    F... the AO2012 final, this was the real deal

    Over 5 hours of a REAL AND ENTERTAINING MATCH, with both players playing on high level most of the time. No 1min of ball bounces before every serve. This was THE DEFINITIVE Nadal vs Djokovic.
