    Federer's back

    He's got some problems with his back multiple times. Not to mention 2019 USO, where that injury prevented him from his epic 21st GS win, that's why he lost the QF to Dimitrov (led 2-1, just 11 points away from the SF). Fingers crossed he won't be suffering any more back injuries after a knee...

    Wilson Roger Federer DNA 12 Bag - Signature

    Hi, Is it only me who finds the current Wilson bag offerings inadequate? What I mean, given the price tag, the bags that have decent design like the Pro staff v13,doesn't have a hard shell to keep it's shape and make them more durable, also the straps and handles are just cheaply done. Given...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Tennis TV commemorates Cincinnati 2009 tournament

    Tennis TV has clearly upped its game in publishing a lot of highlights and best-of videos. Today is the turn for the M1000 Cincinnati 2009 which in its time was called The Real Slam, due to the presence of the Big 4 in the semifinals of the tournament. To be honest, I only remembered the SF...

    Which tennis player would you like to have as Roger's opponent in his last match of his career? Who do you think should send Roger into retirement? Should it be Djokovic or Nadal, one of the two greatest Fed rivals? Anyone from Next Gen or Thiem? Or anyone but Zverev? You have two votes in the...

    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...
