    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)

    As soon as Nadal turned up to the US Open in this brown monstrosity, it was clear his tournament was doomed: After all, we can see that in recent years, since Moya became coach, Nadal’s results are entirely decided by the quality of his kit. GOATy kits == Slam wins . . . . . . Nice and...

    John Isner’s performance vs Murray this year was the highest level of grass court tennis we’ve seen at Wimbledon in the past 2 years

    Man was bombing down serves, volleying like prime PETE and hammering that forehand. 82 winners, 36 aces against a GOAT returner who had shown great form against Kyrgios and Berrettini. Kyrgios himself can only dream of that kind of brutality. Big John can still beat absolutely anyone on his day...

    Just a reflection... I missed the women's final (for my son's swim meet -- they won, very few people care) but I just caught up with the post-match press conferences of both Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina. So, I'll hope to catch match highlights later, but for now, I just want to post that it...

    “The weakest Wimbledon we've seen” - BBC commentator 2022

    During Kyrgios - Tsitsipas, while they were closing the roof, one of the commentators (pretty sure it was John Lloyd) said: "Without being disrespectful, it really is the weakest Wimbledon we've seen since I can remember" Commentators usually always talk about how tennis has never been better...

    Should Fritz be Considered a Lucky Loser and Play the Semi-Final?

    Should Wimbledon and other tournaments advance the previous matches loser in the event of a withdrawal? In this case Fritz to the Semis vs Kygrios. Don't the fans end up losing without a match?

    2022 Wimbledon Final: Elena Rybakina vs. Ons Jabeur

    For all the marbles! Jabeur has improved a lot since last year, but last year, she lost to Sabalenka 6-4, 6-3, so she can potentially be hit off the court by Rybakina. My take is that Rybakina’s biggest weakness is her mental game and she can commit a lot of UEs when she gets tight. She...

    Nick can't use his usual "if I cared enough I'd win much more" bulls**t, after the way he celebrated after beating Tsitsipas yesterday. Judging by his celebration he clearly cares, so which fresh new excuse will the AussieClown use when he looses very soon (likely next round)? Vote and...

    Novak Djokovic either loses in R3 or goes on to Win Wimbledon.

    You heard it probably the 98th time here. There's no one in the draw who can stop him besides some inspired Servebot + Big hitter. Rafa might do it but I'd not bet on him. Also, I've never made a correct prediction on TTW so hopefully it's gonna be the first one!
