Re: US Open R4: [2] Federer d. [13] Isner 7-6(0) 7-6(6) 7-5


5 approach shots.
4 dropshots.
11 from the back of the court.
8 passing shots.
5 volleys.

That's 33. Plus 15 aces is 8. The final 7 were service winners (that's why the category is...

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

You may not remember or may not know, but this is the way tennis was often played in the past. John McEnroe used to do this on all surfaces and he had the hands to do it successfully even with a...

Re: New Statistical Info on Federer-Nadal H2H

Cool Re: New Statistical Info on Federer-Nadal H2H


One could lose a set in a TB while holding serve to love each time so a 4 point difference each time (6 x 4 = 24) while getting to at least 30 in every return game (or 40 or to AD a...

Re: New Statistical Info on Federer-Nadal H2H

Because of the AD system of scoring, because margins in tennis are extremely small, because Nadal won just about every close match played between the two, and because Federer recorded some lopsided...

Re: Djokovic 6-6 vs Murray in finals

It's 6-6 after this final. Djokovic beat Murray twice in SFs at Indian Wells but not in the finals.

Re: Andy played great. He's near his best again.

Murray was really strong throughout, especially right at the beginning of the match. Federer didn't miss any serves to start out, but Murray was in those first two service games and had he broken,...

Re: RG 15 - Un pour tous, tous pour un -- Beats Falla 63 63 64. R2 vs Granollers

Here's something fun: Federer has now won 205 (might be 204--somebody double check) grand slam matches in straight sets. To put that into perspective, Sampras "only" won 203 slam matches total.

Re: The Shanghai tournament 2013

Several things at play in this match and recent ones and they're all too predictable as I've seen these components of a downward spiral so many times before.

1. This new approach he has is the...

Re: Us Open 2013 - The Beast Has Been Awoken Inside Roger

You could tell from the very beginning that Federer was nervy, not feeling it, and as always has been the case in tennis, the opponent feels it. I'm sure Robredo was just as shocks as we were by the...

Re: Cincinnati 2013

He simply hasn't. He was tremendous in this tournament since just about everything in his game was working. His return off of both serves was really good (he was aggressive with BH returns as well...

Re: Andy Murray once bageled Rafael Nadal in practice onclay

You can't read too much into this, but one thing I have noticed about Murray is how good of a practice player he is. Obviously he's a great player on tour, but he's often just that much better in...

Re: Is del potro the greatest break points saver of all time?

If you look at the all-time lists, the top break-point savers all have huge serves. The only ones in the top 11 who don't are Federer and Nadal, with Federer still having a very good serve. Nadal...

Lightbulb Re: Navratilova: Why men’s matches should be best-of-three sets

The AO, RG, and USO have all employed Bof3 in early rounds in the past. As far as I know Wimbledon is the only slam that hasn't.

Even though Bof3 and Bof5 are both "still tennis," the...

Re: Has Anyone ever won a tournament losing more points than they won?

As mentioned, seems like it would be very difficult to do unless there were a couple of 7-6, 1-6, 7-6 type scores with lopsided TBs to boot. Although such occurrences take place more times than one...

Re: ♕* Rotterdam 2013 ♕ Let's have glory again *♕ - R2 RF d.De Bakker QF - Bennetteau

The serve and FH were absent again. Even in the earlier matches, which he won easily, he was on his back foot in so many rallies because he was giving up ground with his loopy FHs that lacked depth,...

Re: Sao Paolo R2: Nadal 2.0 survives Joao Souza 6-3 6-4

Nadal still working on getting the timing right on the returns. I think he felt comfortable enough on serve that he wasn't going to go all out on return. In the past, most players would be lucky to...

Re: ♕*** Rotterdam 2013 ♕ Let's have glory again ***♕

This was how he played his FH during most of the Australian Open this year and it hurt him in many, many rallies, allowing his opponent to get the upper hand. In addition to this, we really didn't...

Re: Has there even been a top 4 seed with an easier route to the semi's than Murray?

You're right about the generally predictable, and hence boring for some, nature of early rounds at slams today compared with slams in the '90s or the early 2000s, but this is exactly what the powers...

Re: Has there even been a top 4 seed with an easier route to the semi's than Murray?

That's primarily due to the implementation of the 32 seed system that came about at the tail end of Sampras's career in 2001 as opposed to the 16 seed system that Sampras played in for most of...

As much as people like to harp on and on about how much Nadal has taken away from Federer (and Nadal has, to be sure, e.g., perhaps two calendar year slams, perhaps 10 slam wins in a row, etc.,...
