I don't get it. Why youngsters talks so much and do nothing on the court. Are you kidding me? Don't get me wrong but I really can't say who is more stupid. So, you complain it's boring. OK, well you are boring too. You do not win W by wishing what could happen.

Play your best tennis and win it if you could. Well, I guess Djokovic and Fed will be there too :). Oops, I forgot about Rafa ;)

That is some commendable trolling from Tsits. He, Meddy, and FAA have a ghost of a chance at Wimbledon. Tsitsibot has yet to display the requisite return skills.

Wimby is all about the serve. Its why Nadal under Moya very much a contender once again and almost all of the younglings have little chance as they are far, far from prime, let alone peak serving. A hot Medvedev like last year in Tokyo could make a splash on grass, but that serve has been on vacation for quite a while now.:(

Its been all about the serve at Wimbledon for a long, long time with even Agassi needing an exceptional hold rate to win Wimbledon and now its worse for the most part with Poly with geriatric servebots like Anderson and Isner ruling the roost.

These young players (pencil in Kyrgios, Shapo as well) probably have some fine dreams about Wimbledon, but they are a long way away.:sneaky:

Tpas better get his grass game in order.

I'm a fan of his and think he will come to dominate, along with a few others, but his form since the grass season began has not been great.

his strokes look so awkward on the grass! this is the first year i'm really paying attention to it, and i'm not liking what i'm seeing...

Watching now, looks pretty good against a decent grass player. He needs some time, but he will figure it out.

It's not Big-4 Wimbledon dominance, but Big-3 dominance at all of the slams. Fedalovic has won 13 of the last 14 Australian Opens, 14 of the last 15 French Opens, 14 of the last 16 Wimbledons, and 11 of the last 15 US Opens.

Tsitsipas is only 20, so he's too young to have brought an end to Big-3's slam dominance. But lets see if he can put his money where his mouth is.
 
I do think Tsitsipas has the game to win majors, but I don't think he has the mental toughness to beat the Big 3 in a row. He will not get to the number one ranking while Rafa is present. His game falls apart on slow clay against Rafa. If he stays healthy and motivated, he will probably go to number one rankings in the year 2024, 2025. But people will say he couldn't do that until Big 3 was stil present.

I agree with everything except replace Rafa with Djoker. It will be Djoker keeping Tsits from number one, not Rafa.

The youngsters must believe that their time is now! Power isn't something that you are given. Real power is something that you take. A teenage Boris Becker didn't wait around for guys like Ivan Lendl to decline.

Wimbledon is the only slam where the term ‘big 4’ dominance can be used. Andeh has done well on grass. So has the other Andy.

It is fine for fans to set that they dislike the big 4 dominance, but the current world no. 6 shouldn't be saying this. You've got a problem, go and fix it by beating them.
Yes, it's absurd, and rather embarrassing, for a player to complain that dominance by other players is boring -- as if the speaker had absolutely no influence over the situation or any opportunities to create different outcomes. A whiff of sour grapes here.

Both are stopping him to reach the #1. Last time I checked, not only Djokovic, but also Nadal is over Tsitsipas in the ATP ranking. Even Federer and Thiem are over him. So it is radically untrue that "Djokovc, not Rafa" is stopping the Tsitsipas from the #1 spot.

Nope, #2 does not stop someone from getting to #1. If the points are set at a number to reach, the number #2 spot is meaningless. Obviously he has to pass #2, but once he does, it is Djoker that is still in his way.

Don't be a Nadal hater. Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and even Thiem are blocking Tsitsipas from reaching the #1, as they are all over him in ATP points. Even the most hardcore Federer fans can see it. It is completely untrue that only Djokovic is stopping Tsitsipas from reaching the #1.

Following your logic, only Djokovic is stopping Feliciano López from being #1, the other 40 players or so over him are irrelevant.
