    Isner's face tells it all on his first highlight. Even Djokovic was across the net as witness many times. What I took away from this was Federer was extremely fast pre-2010.

    Federer: "It’s a golden time for tennis right now, no doubt."

    Another interesting part from Federer’s latest AP interview: “I honestly think it’s going to be quite exciting to see how much longer can they (Djokovic and Nadal) go. How much more can they win? They might have some more incredible years ahead of them. That’s my assumption,”Federer said. “It’s...

    Federer Hits Ballkid, Does Not Apologize! (sounds like an Express headline... it's not)

    I typed in "Federer Shanghai" on YouTube to see his practice session(s) just because and noticed a 2012 Fed v Stan the Man highlights video. Decided to watch and in the second set tiebreak, Fed hits an ace town the T for a 6-3 lead and when he hits his ball to Wawrinka's side he accidentally...

    Does Serena have a better career than Federer?

    Now before someone starts making it about men's vs women's tennis... I am only talking about achievements in their respective tours. Simply put, if we take all their career achievements currently, has Serena Williams had a better career in Women's tennis than Federer has had in Men's tennis?

    Is there a 'Hail Mary' option in Roger's career now?

    To add another slam or perhaps (gasp) two? I know this sounds crazy on the face of it, and no doubt many here will post to tell me exactly that, but I don't think he's playing half bad. Strangely, even though Tsitsipas overpowered him, Nadal trampled Tsits, and Novak obliterated Nadal, I would...

    Did we just witness the end of the era? Did we just watch the legacy come to an end? Being a die-hard fan of Roger, I couldn't handle this one. But keeping emotions aside, this brings up a very important question on whether Roger is done here? He is aging, although he doesn't show it on the...

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...
