    Where can I have proper highlights of Nadal/DelPotro ?

    I couldn't watch the match yesterday and thought I would find highlights of 15/20 minutes on YouTube as usual. But I can only find the highlights made by the Wimbledon account which last 3minutes for a match of 5 hour... It's a shame. So do you know where can I find the entire match or better...

    Not all point constructors are same

    Often some people keep on saying that djok, mury, nadl, thiem, etc are not grinders/pushers, they are *point constructors*.... Let us split apart the point construction methods, all are not same They are mainly of three types 1) shotmaking, winner oriented point constructors (agassi, federer...

    Big 4's physical peak years??

    Best results always don't mean that the year was physical peak of that player.. For example, fed's best year of results was 2006 but physical peak was surely 2005, in which he was literally unbeatable... For nadal, I think 2008 was physical peak despite 2010 being best results wise.... Djoker...

    2007-2010 Nadal - One of the Greatest Grass Court Players of all Time

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, I have to say I was first only a Federer fan at the beginning, and it used to hurt knowing the rivalry wasn't really a rivalry, Nadal dominated my favorite player, regardless of surface, to know my player was beaten consistently, and it hurt more when Nadal started...

    Let us suumarise Djokovic's gameplan, techniques and tactics against rafa

    Djokovic has literally humiliated rafa so many times as we know. On every surface, 7-0 7-0 twice. And he is far better player than nadal on all other surfaces which are not clay... But still, We all know the universal truth that nadal is the king, or rather say god of clay courts. None in the...

    If you could just change one point in entire modern tennis history, what will it be?

    Interesting, isn't it??? I mean, change one point and the entire tennis history or that particular match, tourney and/or season can be changed in your favorite one's favour... I will go with one of the following points, in the descending order of my willingness to change its outcome.... 1) That...

    Its time for djok to rise again

    Come on nole, there is honey in the honeycomb having almost all stinger bees half dead.... Nadal was almost absent on hard court and also struggled on clay this year (belive it or not, but it was a significant drop from 2017 level) Federer showing magic from jan.17 to feb.18, but his age is...

    Nadal can beat Federer to win Wimbledon!?!?

    Here is my theory: If Nadal can incorporate 40-60% serve and volley, take the ball earlier, go for broke more often on grass: it will allow him to end matches faster, preserve his body (knees), and hopefully with an easy draw make the final. Once he reaches the final, much healthier and less...

    A federer-nadal match this year - 2018

    I think the chances are too low. Last year, 3 of their 4 meetings were in the first half of the season (AO17 final, IW17 R4, Mia17 final) and the 4th was in october, Sha17 final. This year, first half has gone without a fedal match. Nadal skipped almost full HC season of the 1st quarter of the...

    Looking at Rafa's W% on clay

    Rafa's winning percentage on clay is often shown in a way that doesn't give it as much praise as it should receive. To show you what I mean I've used the formula y = x/(1-x) What this does is show how win percentage (x-axis) correlates with how many average wins/loss (y-axis) What this shows...

    When will Federer & Nadal terminally decline? as in finito, no more winning slams.

    These two have defied being written off, they've been written off more times than Superman, Batman and Spiderman put together, written off more times than John Cena, Incredible Hulk and even Hulk Hogan. How far in time do we have to go back in Men's tennis where two players in their 30s dominate...

    Cilic could have put up a better fight today

    Yeah... Atleast he has a backhand which is existent and can cope up with nadal. And forehand is lethal too, if not at the extent of delpo FH... Also a slightly better movement.. Also cilic would have gone for outplaying/blowing off nadal instead of outrallying him (which is impossible unless...

    Nadal's 900th win

    His victory over Marterer was his 900th career win. "I don't feel old. But I am 32, and I have been here since 2003, so it's a long way, a lot of years," he said. "I started very young. That's a real thing. But, no, I feel happy to be here. Being honest, I am enjoying the day by day on the...

    Who is the Third Greatest Player of all Time?

    As a Federer and Nadal fan, I would have to put Federer as the greatest player to have played our sport and Nadal second. Federer for the type of tennis he played, yes the field was weak in his early grand slam years with opponents like Philipousis, a retiring Agassi, Roddick, Bagdatis etc but...

    When a player is up 5-1 or 5-0, serving for the set...why not aim to BREAK for the set?

    I've always wondered about this. Obviously we don't have the same mindset of pros under pressure, competing in high-stakes matches day in day out. But wouldn't it be a sensible idea, when you've got a 5-0/5-1 lead in a set, to "tank" your service game with the focus on breaking your opponent's...

    Which titles should/could Nadal have lost?

    I personally believe Nadal *could* have lost 2011 if he had played Djokovic instead of Federer in the final. But still unlikely. In 2014 I felt Nadal *should* have lost the title. He was playing quite miserably right through the clay season perhaps affected by his loss to Stan Wawrinka in the...
