    Nadal is officially Epic

    I’ve been following Rafael since Roland Garros 2010 and I must say, I have NEVER seen him rising his level so dramatically in just one match, especially on the first week of a Slam. And the fact that it’s grass makes it even more impressive. Just look at some stats from his match against...

    Catherine Whitaker criticizes the Barcelona Open for naming the central court after Rafael Nadal

    Tennis expert and Amazon Prime presenter Catherine Whitaker She said: It’s weird isn’t it? It’s weird. Could they not have waited just a few years to do that? I feel sorry for all his opponents walking out on the Rafa Nadal court to play Rafa Nadal. It’s ludicrous.

    If Sampras had won the Barcelona Open 11 times...

    ...would they have named the main court Pista Pete Sampras? Something to ponder (or not) on an early morning - or later.

    Djokovic was absolutely masterful today (an appreciation)!

    At the risk of being Captain Obvious, Novak Djokovic was absolutely masterful today, defeating Rafael Nadal (another all-time great and his own greatest rival) 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 to win his record 7th Australian Open title and 15th overall slam. It was also the third time in his career that he has...

    Del Potro Is a Serious Threat to Nadal

    It's been almost nine years since Juan Martin has been to a grand slam final. Since the 2010 Australian Open he has been 0-2 in grand slam semi-finals. But there is a reason why I believe these stats might soon change. For the first time since 2009 Juan Martin del Potro is in the semi-finals...

    Yes. The most consistent player in time violations.. More than 25s b/w serve points on a regular basis. To umpires and ATP/ITF I will say only onr thing :- what's the use of rules if you're not going to implement them? Just because you're afraid of top players....... P.S. :- The poll question...

    Can ATP and ITF stop constant slowing down of surfaces?

    Almost every single big tournament, including Slams, Masters, WTF, some 500s are consistantly being slowed down every year at the rate of around 2.5 to 3.5 CPI per year. Even the clay courts are being slowed down (wtf!!??) And also, I am not going to roll back years in 90s and early 2000s(best...

    If federer choked on those two break points in the final game of final set AO17

    I was just watching highlights (a thousandth time maybe) and this thought popped up in my mind... What if this happened? Not 100% similar to what happened with him in that 2011 USO SF vs djok, but there are a lot of similarities. If nadal got a break in that final game, would it have stopped...
