Re: True or False?

I'll try this one

Looks true. Djokovic is close but Federer played him only once at Wimbledon. Cannot remember Federer playing Roddick, Hewitt (definitely not twice) or Murray at the French. No...

Re: Form and dominance of the Big4

Yes, it is moving but not exactly average. At each date, I look at the last 20 matches played and compute this ratio:

Re: Form and dominance of the Big4

After loss to Rosol, Rafa's last-20 match percentage dropped from 58.3% to approximately 57%

In 4 out of his first 5 matches on clay in 2013, Rafa won less than 57% of points. So, the line continued...

Re: Form and dominance of the Big4

A straight line connects his late-2012 and early-2013 percentages.

I could have left that period blank, but just wanted a continuous line.

surface speed and serve-return stats

Hi All

Here are the average serve-return stats for the top 50 players (seasons 1991-2013, different surfaces). I dropped 2003 because there appear to be errors in the ATP stats in that year.

Re: Apperances of JesusFed since 2010

Best matches of Federer in the last three years

2) 2012 Cincy F vs Djokovic
3) 2011 WTF RR vs Nadal (most one-sided...

Re: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

For the players themselves, probably:
Federer - lost AO 2009 final to Nadal
Nadal - lost RG 2009 to Soderling
Djokovic - lost RG 2011 semi 2011 to Federer
Murray - lost W 2012 final to Federer

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

Federer loses these matches when his serve goes AWOL

It is customary for Federer to shank forehands and hit backhands short, he can still win matches if his serve is working.

He lost these matches...

Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

Agree with RG 08 by Nadal

It would be interesting to ask about best performance for each slam: AO, RG, W, USO

Because it is difficult to have such dominant scores on grass/hard as on clay

AO: Fed...

Re: Things repeated by commentators that you feel are wrong

1) That Murray has great variety. Murray is just a very good mover/defensive player. He doesnt have a good slice, doesnt have a kick second serve, doesnt like approaching the net, etc.

2) When...

Interesting dynamic in Murray-Djokovic


The first time I watched these two play was Miami semi 2007. Djokovic won 6-1, 6-0 and Murray was so awful. He had no weapons to hurt Djokovic and I thought: why are people calling him a talent...

Re: Was Federer's loss bigger loss for Olympic tennis event? Please, be serious

I didn't say that I wanted Olympic gold for Fed because Olympics is a rare event
I said that this was the only significant title missing from Roger's resume, whereas he had 6 Wimbledons already

Very well played, Andy Murray. I am gutted for Roger, but Andy was just too good. Will he suddenly become a major force and stick to this attacking game? Somehow I have my doubts, so many times in...
