Would've loved to see that as well, an 8 year old kid winning slams.

No way of knowing obviously, but he would've found a way. He won the USO when it was still pretty quick, he won the Olympics which were super fast.

Re: Novak Djokovic: "I think the courts are a little bit slower"

The general trend has been a year on year decrease in speed everywhere it seems.

I feel it is going too far these days.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Mind games from Nole just to make everyone think they won't have a chance against him.

Seven hours, three sets. Be there for the final.

Re: Novak Djokovic: "I think the courts are a little bit slower"

Again? jfc what tournament hasn't been slowing down every year

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

It doesn't matter because Nole will dish out another win against Rafa anyway, regardless .
