    Is "Career Inflation" Or "Inflated Career" Real?

    Congratulations, BUT 30 years ago you would have lost...?

    In real life - if any of this is real - I'm a writer who can be quite imaginative, irreverent, innovative, etc. I get and write satire, understand irreverence much more than most, and am not totally averse to hypotheticals, even in sports. But, I just don't see the value in producing...

    A glimpse in the past - when Federer carried Rafa through to the YE #1

    WTF 2019 was one of the most epic editions of tour finals without a shadow of a doubt, a number of battles, calculations, dominations, comebacks and shot making encounters. The highlight for me however was this one. Amazing match from Roger, considering that he'd played quite mediocre tennis at...

    2022 Roland Garros R3: [5] Rafael Nadal vs [26] Botic Van De Zandschulp

    Bot can be a bery bery dangerous opponent, no? Dude is continuously improving. Has a respectable 6-7 record v/s top 10. Rafa better be ready. What do y'all think?

    Nike Vapor Cage 5

    The most recent Vapor Cage 4 has not been anywhere near as well received as the Air Zoom Cage 3. So it would be a safe assumption to say that Nike will phase the cage 4 out quicker than the cage 3. Foot Doctor Zach (Tennis Player, Foot Doctor, Tennis gear reviewer) posted a video citing a good...

    This is the 5th meeting between the pair, 2nd overall on clay. H2H is split 2-2 with one of shapo's victories not being an actual win, but a walkover from the Spaniard in the 2019 paris masters semi final. Shapovalov is the defending semi finalist here, who lost a marathon match to Diego...

    New Rafa Shorts 2021?

    I have been wanting to post this for a while... are these Rafa's new shorts coming up for either the second half of 2021 or maybe even 2022? I know he has often trained in an upcoming shirt/shorts months before their release... is this maybe one of this kind of circumstance? Or is this a...

    Rafael Nadal :- The greatest tennis warrior of all time displaying his power

    Season is over, but Nadal's highlights reel can never end. Here is a great video I randomly found on the internet. He can seriously inject a huge amount of pace into his groundstrokes as you can see. Vamos.

    So who’s pumped for the French?

    Now that the uso is done is everyone ready for French? So many questions. Who will win? Will Djokovic be dqed? But as much as I try I can’t get into the French. I really don’t know why.

    Who Would Have Been the "Real" #1 if Novak Had Lost the 2011 Wimbledon Final?

    Novak would have still been the #1 player even if he had lost to RAFA in the 2011 Wimbledon final but in your opinion who would have been the "real" #1 player in the world had it happened? Since some give extra value for slams. Tournaments in that period: 2010 Canada: Nole SF, RAFA SF 2010...

    Could Rafa have won 2016 French Open?

    Yesterday I was rewatching 2016 FO Final highlights, incredible tennis from both Novak and Andy. I remember being so happy for Novak to finally win the title after 3 lost finals (it would be a travesty if he didn't manage to get the career grand slam). That being said.. if Rafa didn't injure...
