Gems and blunders from the TTW tennis discussions

The title is pretty self-explanatory: all the weird, outrageously untrue etc claims related to the game. Please, only direct quotes. That is not a failed predictions thread, or one where someone's words are "interpreted", out of context or an obvious joke.

I will start with two recent ones:

Clayqueen: Agassi never won a Major on clay
RF-18: Kyrgios is Isner but with LESSER ground game

:cool:

This could be the start of a stream of blunders from a bottomless source:

4/29/15 TOTT Thread: “Tiafoe seems to have no weapons; he won’t break top 50. Poor man’s yannick noah”

Can you guess the source? Hint: his vision of the future is obviously very cloudy.

I don't know where Tiafoe will end up. But the establishment reaction to him is very typical. Oh his strokes are different therefore IE he won't be good. Dopes.

On this past Monday, referring to fedr after escaping Albot:

“he will lose in next round, he is old and can’t play 2 1000 events in a row anymore”

From the never ending fountain of the vision of the future.

60's Weed's "Federer should forfeit the match" thread should high up on the list, no?

Cesc Fabregas' Infamous "Its a Digrace, Its an Scandal, Its a Outrage" thread.

"Poor (Insert Player's Name) got destroyed again. LOL" threads

(Insert Player's Name) Looking Good, Will Win (Insert Event Name) threads

Latest from our veritable bottomless spring of blunders from the cloudy visionary:

Upon being called out for his fail prediction regarding Tiafoe never reaching top 50:

“yes he’s improved after I sent him many teaching tips via Twitter. He is top 50, thanks to me.”

Dallas: "... but the important thing is that it's just another illustration that this "prime Federer's forehand was a monstrous shot/arguably the greatest shot evAr" claim is a laughable myth:
Face it, folks.
Prime Federer was a servebot. Federer's ground game has only improved over the years."

Dallas said:
"I don't think Federer's forehand is anything special now. I just think it's slightly better than it was before. It was never better than average."

:cool:

ABCD: I always thought that Agassi is greater than Sampras. The only issue I have there is 14:20 H2H. Regarding Borg, it is a figure of immense historical significance (people who made modern tennis are Borg and Lendl). However, if I consider tennis alone, of course that Agassi is greater.

Few of the most valuable ones below:

It’s been a strong era ever since 1997 when Alexander Zvererv was born.
Zed in the new Fed. He will be the GOAT, but he will also choke some matches. It comes with the territory.
Thanks for this gif... This explains why people are so jealous and hate him so much... The smile... the beauty... the hair... the amazing facial features.... the perfect height... the broad shoulders... the carefree personality... the way he is comfortable in his own skin... the confidence...

Too bad we can't also see his spectacular abs in this... but overall amazing gif.
Alexander Zverev is our savior, just wait until the 2018 USO or at the latest 2019 AO. I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself :( Patience, it's gonna happen in the next few months. The rise of a new All-time great, probably the best of them all... The rise of ZVRV.
Let’s analyze Zverev’s nicknames and compare them to the 2 GOATs.

Rafa = Sascha

Fed = Zed

The similarities are not a coincidence, this is destiny.
