Re: Pat Cash: "Federer isn't the best because he cannot beat Nadal"

Re: We never had such a dominant #1 since 2009

Yes, and that's not the same thing as dominating.

Re: We never had such a dominant #1 in the history of ATP

You were talking about Federer's losses, not his victories.

Victories over lesser opponents in slam finals are less impressive, but you can only play who is across the net from you. Hence Federer...

Re: We never had such a dominant #1 in the history of ATP

And Murray and Nadal were recently beaten by Coric. These arguments go nowhere. You can't judge the strength of a player by the ranking or age of who they happened to lose to at various points. Being...

I think you're misunderstanding the purpose of this thread. It's there to highlight a cool record that not many people probably know about. Everyone knows who wins RG every year. The "big" records...

Re: Why Djokovic is not classified as a one surface wonder but the Dirtballer is ?

AO and USO combined together, with no attempt to differentiate them. All slams that play faster than clay are "fast court". Speed of grass peaked in 2009/2010 when they made it fast indoor hardcourt...

Re: Should players be able to make a living playing Challengers?

Tennis better off as a sport if there is less depth of ability because lack of funding has pushed potential prospects out?

Yeah, we are. The whole game. As in not just the serving part.

Re: IW QF: Federer def. Berdych 6-4 6-0

Yeah, obviously it's impossible to play well from the back of the court without hitting loads of aces. Winners and unforced errors are irrelevant. It's how many aces you hit and double faults you...

Even if true it tells us nothing about Federer's level.

But tennis is a skill based sport so pro's can't be doping :confused:

Re: Who is the Best Shotmaker?

Yeah, in his later years he was overshadowed by the real all time greats: Gremelmayr, Dlouhy, Reynolds, Ouanna and Crivoi.

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada could test using hair

Yeah.

Clearly, being able to train harder is no advantage. Clearly, being able to sustain your level for longer in a Bo5 set match is no advantage. Clearly Murray's terrible stamina when he was...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada could test using hair

Is being able to maintain your peak level for a longer period of time an advantage in tennis?

The governing body has a vested interest in presenting tennis as a clean sport.

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada could test using hair

The question is whether given an existing skill level, it would be an advantage to be able to maintain that level for longer periods of time.

Federer didn't choke, but played too passive.

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

Oh, so it's out of Djokovic's control then. Federer just magicked up a few breaks of serve and there was nothing Novak could do about it :(

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

And this type of surface rewards Federer's serve and aggressive play. When the clay season comes around we'll see what the state of his ground game is really like.

Re: Stan Wawrinka: "I was mentally dead (during match with Novak)"

Wawrinka did go out there and do his job. He played a five set match against the no.1 player in the world. If doing your job means always performing at 100% of your physical and mental capacity, then...

Re: Stan Wawrinka: "I was mentally dead (during match with Novak)"

I don't think he was whining; he was just being honest about how he feels. The converse of you're saying is that top tennis players simply aren't allowed to feel overwhelmed because it's such a...
