    Shapo and mishits!

    Watched Shapo yesterday and starting to notice a trend of him just randomly mishitting a lot. You guys think it is just him being late or that he would do better with a bigger frame than his current 95 sq inch frame?

    NextGen Top Trumps

    I think it's time for us to formulate some hypothetical (mythical, uninjured, peak, sodomized etc.) Top Trump cards for the NextGen SUPERSTARS. To kick things off, I propose the following defining attributes to reflect their abilities, each of which can be ascribed a score from 1 to 10. Overhype...

    Who would be a good coach for Shapo?

    I don't want to jinx things, BUT, Marty Laurendeau has been off for 4 months now with a back injury and 19 year old Denis is trying to find his way. His mother has been a wonderful coach, but he needs someone at this critical juncture to step in and help him deal with some of his "problems"...

    Will Denis prove to be a menace for the tour?

    Labeled by experts and fans as one the greatest talents the game of tennis has ever seen, arguably THE greatest, will Denis Shapovalov live up to the mountain high expectations and make a mockery of the tour? Discuss

    What happened to Sampras will happen to Federer

    Remember when Sampras retired? He had set a record that wouldn't get broken, at least not anytime soon. That's what he and everyone else thought. Then along came Federer who not only broke his number of weeks at number 1 but also the Grand Slam record. Federer is looking to extend that lead, but...

    Shapovalov the biggest talent of the Open Era

    He has the touch of McEnroe, the explosiveness of a young Nadal, the intelligence of Simon and the all court game of Federer. He has it all. Is he even the most talented player of the Open Era? Only Laver can compare imo.

    What if Shapovalov was American...

    He'd be hyped as the next coming GOAT, which he really is, no? But no, he's Canadian and doesn't get much love. Discuss.

    El Shapo is THE next one

    Been a lot of talk about Zverev's so called progress around here, although there are many haters (deservedly so) criticising him. "Anyone but Zverev" is already as famous as Sureshs' carbohydrate-based diet. While the "Anyone but Zverev" bandwagon relies almost solely on his antics and persona...

    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...

    Denis Shapovalov one match away from Canadian #1

    If Shapo wins his match against Berdych, the live ranking gives him 1528 points. Raonic isn't playing at Rome, so is losing 180 points there and will end the week at 1525.

    When will Shapo face Fedr?

    We all anticipate the first time an aging great and and up and coming youngster play. When Roger beat Sampras it was a special moment. So when do you think Shapo will play Federer? Poll may be updated based on feedback and will close if and when they play.
