Re: Cincinnati SF: Kyrgios def. Ferrer 7-6(3) 7-6(4)

A "typical" servebot would have big forehand and/or a serve and volley style. Kygrios relies on his backhand to set up crazy angles and can hit winners when completely out of position. He also...

Re: Predict the final slam count of the Big Three

They don't count because Federer won them. If you include them then the H2H becomes 9-6 in favour of Federer, so they have to be ignored.

Re: Is Federer injured?

He lost 2 times already this year and no one said he was injured. The last time injury was an ongoing factor in his losses was 2013. It's not like there is some huge list of "external factors" fans...

Re: 2017 Live Commentary Vol. 11

Federer doesn't seem to give a shit.

Re: Montreal R3: Federer def Ferrer 4-6 6-4 6-2

Of course Djokovic never struggled in any of his victories and won every match 6-0, 6-1.

Sorry, I probably should be in bed rather than posting on MTF.

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations w/o proof) vol. 2a

Well, at Wimbledon his average first serve speed was 113MPH in the final and 121MPH in the semi final, and his fastest serves were 123MPH and 130MPH respectively.

Re: Which was the biggest choke of Federer's career?

Ok, for some reason I thought you were talking about the final match points. But I checked and you are right that on Fed's match points Djokovic was still ahead. So, fair enough.

Re: Which was the biggest choke of Federer's career?

Djokovic won more points overall, because he was clearly the much better player after Federer had wasted his opportunities. Just like in my example the player winning 0-6,0-6,7-5,6-0,6-0 is clearly...

Re: Which was the biggest choke of Federer's career?

Are those the stats up until the match points?

Because as an example you could be 6-0,6-0,5*-0 40*-0 up and then go on to lose 6-0,6-0,5-7,0-6,0-6, winning less points and games than your...

Re: Is Federer an underachiever or overachiever?

Only grand slams after 2011 count, because tennis didn't exist prior to that point. People were playing a completely different sport that just happened to use the same rackets, with the same players...

Re: Is Federer an underachiever or overachiever?

Federer simply got exposed by the "modern" era of tennis, in which points are much more physical and players are hitting the ball a lot harder. That's why he only won 5 of 7 events this year and only...

Including the mental lapses and UEs at weird moments?

Re: A Neuroscientist Explains Federer?s Predictive Genius

If mental states supervene on physical states then surely this is possible in some sense?

Re: A Neuroscientist Explains Federer?s Predictive Genius

Djokovic's return stats at 30 are far ahead of Federer's at the same age, for everything apart from first serve return. For Djokovic at 36 to have Federer's current return stats would already be a...

Re: Today - the hardest tennis-related day ever for Sampras.

Wimbledon 2010? And you're right, but neither Tsonga or Berdych are ATGs. It doesn't seem impossible to me that a candidate to be the grass GOAT could play that well at 19. Look how well Kyrgios...

Re: Today - the hardest tennis-related day ever for Sampras.

It depends on his confidence and form going into Wimbledon. At 28/29 Federer was losing to Berdych and Tsonga, so I don't see why you couldn't substitute in a teenage ATG, if one existed. Federer has...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations w/o proof) vol. 2a

Do the stats take into account the difference between topspin and slice backhands? Because if he is hitting his topspin backhand more often and more aggressively, that could account for the...

Why does it matter *why* a player is able to perform under pressure? Lets take an extreme example. Suppose a player undergoes brain damage and is now deathly calm in all situations. Should his...

Re: Where does this "Nadal is a mentally tough warrior" crap come from?

Surely, we use mental toughness to describe a player's capacity to play his best tennis on the most crucial points?

Re: Will they ever get tired of saying Federer's backhand has improved?

The difference is due to Federer taking the ball earlier – which he has done at various points in his career, but seems to be consistently easier with the bigger racket.

Re: Predict USO 2017 winner

Djokovic will win, unless he is defeated by his injury, an unfair draw, biased scheduling, Jelana Marko and Pepe, the wind, or touching the net at a crucial point.
