    First Slam Since 1999 without Fed and Rafa

    USO will apparently not have Rafa in the draw. Fed is out due to injury. I believe this is the first slam where neither were present for a slam. Crazy.

    USO will NOT work

    About every tourney has had someone if not multiple people get C19. These are with small draws and not nearly the amount of people involved. When a player gets C19 they will have to withdrawal regardless of what round they are in. It is not even a matter of if, but how many? At what point does...

    Thiem forehand swing motion???

    Is it just me or did he change it a bit??? Before: After:

    Djoker must make a statement now!

    We get it, we all have parents or people we love that say things we don't agree with. It happens, but as a public figure, unfortunately, you sometimes have to address it. In this case, what Djokers father has said about Dimi needs to addressed publicly. This is a massive slight to Dimi in...

    Tour Reset: Why not now?

    I assume USO and FO will take place, but if it does not, wouldn't this be a great time to revamp some thing on the tour? Such as schedules and tournament, and surfaces? Would you be up for "resetting the Tour" and starting fresh in January? (Assuming USO and FO don't take place)

    Liberating feeling going into August

    Does anybody get the feeling that when the tour starts up again by essentially going straight in to two slams in a month, that it is a liberating feeling? I know many don't think they will be played, but I do, and I think it will be essentially full participation. While many think it will be...

    Could Sascha have done better in the final?

    He generally ups his level in the big finals. The record 4-2 speaks for itself. Whereas Thiem's underperformings in big finals are no secret either. He is 1-5. Plus, even in recent matches over djok, thiem has been making life harder for himself by letting so many opportunities pass by, RG2019...

    Did Thiem Overachieve?

    Thiem's rank in two abstract but important statistical categories from 2014-2019. The big 3 are typically ranked in the top 10 in both categories every year. Clearly, these numbers predict success. Stagnation in the return game since 2016, slight hold game improvement. It's unrealistic, given...

    Save us Thiem... save us

    It is time Thiem becomes the saviour we all have wanted. It is his time. For Rafa fans: Yes it could be scary if Thiem has confidence going into the FO, but Rafa is still Rafa at the French. That being said, it stops djoker from getting within 2 of Rafa. It also gives someone Djoker has to be...

    Where are we on court speed at AO20?

    Always ends up being a debate, so I thought I would start it off. Looks decently fast and the bounce seems a bit low. Good for Fed? What are your thoughts? Like the change? Not a huge difference? Edit: After a few more games, seems a little bit faster and a little bit lower than USO, but...

    It is Zverev's year

    Zverev has shown his talents... and his weakness. He has had his ups and his downs. He was young, now he is at the age where it is time to show what he really is. The more I think about it, and the more I watched his matches at the end of the year, I feel like he is a mental game away from...

    I sense a shift in the TIGER debate as Djoker sets aim on Rafa

    While I am obviously in Feds corner (think his Tennis resume is indisputable as being the Greatest Ever speaks for itself Regardless), I do think the shift of those trailing has altered significantly. Rafa has always chased Fed and will continue to do so, but he is clearly catching up at an...

    2020: Same song different verse: Djoker and Rafa

    To me it is simple and not very surprising, but Rafa and Djoker will take the first 3 slams of 2020 with ease. In order for this to NOT happen there would have to be a dramatic shift in the young guys or in Rafa and Djoker. This means the young guys (Thiem, Med, Tsits, Zverev, Khach, Matteddy...

    Olympic Gold: Rafa won it on HC, Djoker and Fed did not win it on their best surface

    This is interesting. Even as a Fed fan (does have a gold... I know I know, but he does have a tennis gold :sneaky: ), I do find this important, as Rafa won gold on a HC. Fed has his chance on grass, and Djoker had his chance on hard. Both failed to win gold. While this shows there is very few...

    Wearing glasses with perfect vision?

    Is this socially acceptable? I want to buy the new Bose sunglasses and put clear lens in them to get more usability out of them. They are insanely cool, as if I have my own personal soundtrack for my brain. But I have perfect vision, so is this weird? Does anybody use glasses just for style...

    Rafa had enough of reporter and let him know Rafa tells reporter it is time for Spanish interviews after being asked ridiculous questions about his wife. I dig this. Never see Rafa riled up. Hope...

    TTW and their GIF's

    I was just reading over @Federer and Del Potro TTW Wedding thread and how funny and true some of his memes of each poster was. He kept it lighthearted and fun. I would like to do the same here, so try not to post anything nasty about someone. Maybe post a GIF of the poster who posted last...

    Will or should Rafa play WTF?

    So the question the next few days is if Rafa will play WTF, and should he? Obviously there is much to gain here: First WTF title YE#1 to tie Fed and djoker Rack up more weeks at number 1 if he does get YE#1 Strong finish to the season However, he has never shown massive interest in winning...

    Rafa fans? Win AO20 or RG20?

    For you Rafa fans, would you rather Rafa win AO20, or RG20 if he can't win both. Obviously he does have a decent shot at winning both, but what would you rather have happen? Catch is if he wins AO20 you catch Fed earlier, but then have the disappointment of not closing it at RG. But you also...
