    I miss the quirks of each Grand Slam

    Since 2019, all Grand Slams have been losing their own personality for some reason that I never heard of. Some of the sad changes made by each major: -AO: No more Thu-Fri night men's SF and Thu afternoon women's SF, no more ad-set final set. -RG: Scheduled night sessions, divided one-W one-M QF...

    A definitive guide to accurately predicting Rafa Nadal's slam results + behaviour (PROVEN)

    That bad streak shouldn't be continued. 2019 unfortunate ending with an injury. 2020 line judge drama. 2021 big upset in the final. 2022 vaccination drama. Novak won't play there anymore.

But purely from a tennis point of view, Nick is surely the guy going in with the most pedigree, right? Serve is looking deadly on the skidding court, he can S&V...

    What is wrong with the WTA being wide open (Genuine question) ?

    I see lots of people complaining about how wide open the US open is, and i don't understand why, surely having lots of players that are at the skill level to win a grand slam is a good thing and i don't mean like Emma Raducanu, more like Osaka and Iga, those who have multiple or come close to...
