    Poll: Who had it worse?

    All three of the Big 3 have had their crack at #21. Federer first in 2019 at Wimbledon. Infamous 40-15. Nadal had the next crack in 2021 at RG. Four set beatdown at a place he owns. Novak got his chance in 2021 at the USO. Straight setted in a match that would have also given him a Grand Slam.

    Tsitsipas will become the new World No. 3

    Stefanos Tsitsipas will take 3rd place in the ATP rankings for the first time in his career on Monday, August 9, and will move Nadal to 4th place. In the live ATP ranking (https://live-tennis.eu/en/atp-live-ranking), Tsitsipas has 8115 points, Nadal 7815.
  9. James P

    Tsitsipas could get to #3 in the world post-RG

    To start with, it's highly unlikely that ANY of this will happen, but... Nadal losing in the SF (or earlier) AND Tsitipas winning RG2021 Results in: Tsitsipas 8,780 ATP points, Nadal 8,630 points, Thiem 7,425 points
