Re: Brilliant Tennis Photography Thread

This is probably the only thread worth coming to MTF, and perhaps the Live Ranking one.

Re: every gs final since rg 2005 has featured nadal federer or djokovic

That's insane. I can't think of another time when it happened for so long at the biggest events in tennis.

39 slams and counting and win ratio is 34 of 39, 87%.

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

Yes, I fully agree he has not (and perhaps will never win in Rome).

My only point is that doesn't stop him from completing the set if he wins MC (either in 2014 or some point in future).

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

Just to be clear, Federer never won Rome Masters.

But that doesn't stop him from completing the masters set of 9 for 9 (if he wins MC tomorrow) when historians record it.

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

Why does that matter? They used to play 5 sets not too long ago. Should we then change the whole value of Masters? All those are technicalities.

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

Masters shields are always based on slots, as it has been since 1970. See how many times, cities and locations have changed.

For tennis historians, the elegant and simple way to count is: Who won...

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

Hmm, you are just cherry-picking slots. As you say, they are switched since 2011. So what's the problem?

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

He just lucked out that he can complete the set without winning Rome as Rome & Madrid swapped slots. So he just only needs the 3rd one, MC.

Re: Masters 1000 tournaments Federer yet to win

Not true, Roger has won on all slots except 3rd which if he wins tomorrow will complete the set.

Currently, Roger won 8 slots, Nole at 8, Rafa at 7, Andy at 4.
