    2023 Paris Open ATP master's 1000 R64 - Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) v/s Dominic Thiem (AUT)

    A bit if nostalgia as 2 of the most powerful one-handed backhand players are about to collide, both removed from their best years, yet still showing sparks of good form here and there. Predict the result & scoreline, folks.

    All 4 slams this year broke records for attendance. Why?

    For all the talks of Alcaraz, Djokovic and whatnot, let's all be happy for Thiem

    The guy won his first ever slam match at this year's USO 1R since that hard fought comeback win against Nick Kyrgios at the 3R of AO 2021. Since then, he had suffered 5 straight 1R losses at slams, including a hard fought 5 setter against Tsitsipas at Wimbledon this year. Finally, he has...

    Active Big Titles Champions Ranked

    In the last couple of years we've seen a lot of new big title champions, especially compared to 2011-2013 where Ferrer was the only one to make that breakthrough. Since we have a lot of 1 M1000 (which I'll just refer to M for short) winners I decided to look at all of them (and the more...

    They still beat the best in the world... So quit the Weak Era talk

    It's pretty simple. You can whine and complain. You can brings stats and level of play. You can name names and talk about technology. You can say it's unfair. Cool. It's still the BEST in the WORLD no matter what Era it is. Sure, we all joke about weak eras and I think we all know this Era...

    Pickleball players ruining courts

    They keep lowering the center of the net with the strap and then leaving it. Also leaving beer cans and even food. This must end... Or I will end it for them.

    What year would you like to have been born?

    Would you change when you were born? If you could? I feel like I would enjoy life more in a different Era. For me I wish I was born in 1930. I guess it all depends on where too, but any earlier might be a problem as I honestly don't know I could do what the soldiers did in ww2. Those men were...

    UFO and aliens are real: who cares

    "I didn't expect him to play so well this year on grass" SUBTEXT: I have to start trying

    Djoker said it himself. He was not expecting this challenge and you could see it. He was shocked. He thought he had more time. He might be 36, but he hasn't been challenged so he has been on cruise control physically and mentally. He now knows he can now be beat. Two options for Djoker...

    Original Next-Gen will be missed: say your goodbyes

    Was watching the Sandlot... I couldn't resist [Grigor Narrating] Even though Fed loved weak competition, he was still plenty mad about us next-gen not winning more... ruining his Slam Records. So I didn't feel too bad when he beat me 10 times straight.. instead of the rest of my life. Wow...

    Ruune will do what Thiem could never do

    Ruune reminds me of Thiem. I see an opportunity for Ruun to finally make people have to remember him and for people to finally take him serious. Sure, we all see Ruude as the guy in djokers book when djoker says "after beating 172, I went on to beat Rudd, or was it that other guy?" However...

    Djoker is the Most Entertaining Athlete in the World

    No Fed, no Rafa, and no 172cm. Yet, djoker drags the entertainment along. Is the tennis great? Nah, not really. But let's be honest, Djoker makes everything interesting and has given the ATP a fiasco like feel. A fiasco that is keeping tennis alive. For this to continue, djoker will need to...

    Is Fed in a different Era than djoker? How do we define eras?

    We can never agree on eras and their level. I'm not so sure we can even define eras. Think about this: Fed had won 11 slams by the time djoker reached a slam final and fed bloomed late At one point their slam totals were 1-16 Fed beat sampras on WC while djoker never played him Fed played...

    Djoker is big 3: Respect that and cherish it

    I dislike djoker as much as you can. I always thought him passing fed wuld hurt. It doesn't. I'm starting to realize after 15 years of watching him grow up on and off the court... He has become nostalgic for me. Whether I like it or not, he is a part of tennis history that will never be...

    The question has finally been answered: Kyrgios could win slams if he trained hard

    He reached the WC final and put a decent effort. Obviously he isn't a tennis player, but a server who plays tennis. If he had a slightly better ROS, slightly better fitness, slightly better ground game, and actually cared... HE WOULD WIN MULTIPLE SLAMS. Period. Just imagine if he was 10-15%...

    Will the ATP survive? Could they go under?

    First, I am not saying it is even financially possible for this to happen. I am legitimately asking for those who understand the finances of the ATP. I wonder if this is possible for several reasons: Tour level is abysmal and some slam matches aren't even watchable anymore This juice box Era...

    Getting dressed : what a catastrophic bore

    It is the worst. I'm over it. Just too complicated and annoying. First have to make sure your outfit is appropriate for the day activities. Make sure it's clean and wrinkle free. Then go find them in your dresser then in the closet. Take the hanger off. Usually your stickey from the shower...
