    Requesting More Objectivity Here

    A Quick Rant – Not My First, and Probably not My Last Especially with large portions of the world at war or in great turmoil, and personal challenges that we all face, there are a zillion things much more important than tennis, and GOAT races. And I admit that I enter a lot of these threads...

    Soccer Player Equivalents to Tennis Players

    A little discussion broke out at work today about which soccer player based off of their play style equals to a quality of a tennis player. One argued Federer more Messi are very alike in their own fields as they both are synonymous with finesse, skill and touch whilst Rafa more Ronaldo are...

    WTF correlation with the peaks of BIG 3

    It seems like the Peaks of the BIG 3 ended quite some time ago. Because I have noticed a correlation of that with their WTF performances. They all stopped winning the tour finals a long time ago... 1) Novak Djokovic won his first WTF in 2008 and then four in a row from 2012 to 2015. But he...

    Am I the only one who's curious about why Federer and Iga haven't said anything to congratulate Nadal?

    I'm just confused. As everybody knows, Iga is the biggest fan of Rafa. And Roger is also one of good friends of Rafa, when Rafa got his 20th Slam in 2020 RG and his 21st Slam in AO this year, Roger always posted his congratulations to Rafa immediately on Instagram. But right now, it's been past...

    2022 ATP 1000 Indian Wells R64. Rafa Nadal (4) VS Seb Korda (38)

    I think we can have a thread for this match as Korda is not a pushover and is an up-and-coming next-gen. Will Korda get rid of his fanboyism and give Nadal a good match or will the veteran blow away the youngling? This match is scheduled right after the first match on court 1 between Medvedev...

    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...

    Rafael Nadal - Amazing Longevity

    Kudos to Rafa for a stunning comeback victory today, notching his 21st slam, and finally, his second AO title. One of the most surprising thing about Rafa's legendary career has been his longevity at or near the very top. Especially for a player who has played - even if some think it has been...

    Rafa Nadal is the sexiest, most handsome, most perfectly built, hottest tennis player to ever grace the earth

    The second men’s winner from RG2021 …

    Djokovic won and it was in another monumental fashion. Man is or is nearly sure to be the goat of tennis. But Djokovic winning also meant another player highly benefited: Stan Wawrinka. The Djokovic goat narrative elevates Stan to an even higher status in his ability to take it to him on hard...

    Producing a Professional Tennis Player despite the extensive amount of money.

    Hi Everyone, I'm a junior tennis player who wants to play on the pro tour but unfortunately, due to the extensive amount of money that goes into producing a professional tennis athlete, I'm unable to afford high performance training - especially in Oceania, and particularly in Europe where most...

    Rafa shows middle finger to Novak

    Rafa clearly salty for ATP Cup loss, no? Disgraceful... Next year draw rigged with Berrettini in final, no?
