Robin Haase's finals record (challengers included) is quite nice

Re: Marcelo Rios to contest Australian Open 1998 final outcome?

By your reaction I assume you were either born around 1998 or were still wearing diapers at the time. Could you be more ignorant?

Besides, this is not just about 1998. If Rios were to be awarded the...

Re: What was Murray's best match in his career?

I agree with Rome 2011. He was amazingly good that match.

Re: Rafael Nadal: Tennis must protect clay surface

Hardcourt being the most balanced surface is a myth.

Re: WWW Buenos Aires Final: [1] Rafael Nadal vs Juan Monaco

I'm gonna regret saying this, but I think he just might do it. If there is a time and place for him to beat Nadal on clay, it is this match.

Re: Why has Murray not improved his second serve?

If he's playing against a good returner this might be worthwhile.
In the AO final against Djokovic, Murray won only 34% of points on his second serve. His first serve % was 65% and of those first...

Re: Top Federer vs Top Nadal vs Top Nole

Yes, they factored in injuries. Because peak Nadal is also injured a lot, no?

OT:
I think that (factoring out play vs. the rest of the field and injuries) you might just as well flip a coin. With...

Re: Why do you think Djokovic is less popular than Federer and Nadal?

I think Nadal has more fans, but also more haters.

OT: there are so many factors, but I think for a large part because the Federer-Nadal rivalry is a very strong and classic sports narrative. One...

Re: Men and Women equal pay at Grandslams.....

That's a strange argument. So if the prize pool is one big pot, that means that all the prize winners have a right to equal pay? Do you also think doubles and wheelchair tournaments should have as...

Re: Will Djokovic be a GOAT candidate if he wins 12 slams?

Depends. If he would win RG and the USO twice once he would have twelve GS, and the only man in the open era to win all slams twice. Or if he were to win the CYGS this year (which he won't), then he...

Re: Djokovic >> Agassi

I largely agree with this. Besides all things that are equal between them, Djokovic has held the number one ranking for more weeks total and longer periods of time than Agassi. Also his consistency...

at the moment he might be. But there's no real saying anything until after MC and Rome.

Re: No1e winning CYGS this year

I think it will work the other way around. If Djokovic finally wins RG, completing his career GS, I don't think he will have enough left to win W and USO. He might win three this year, but not all...

Maybe Andy and Kim can invite Novak and Jelena over for dinner, which they can now serve on Murray's four runner up plates.

Re: Congratulations Novak Djokovic - first man to win 5 AOs in the Open Era!

Amazing achievement from Novak. Really impressive what he did in the third and fourth set just now.



The record for the most US Open titles in the open era is also held by Federer.
