Re: Andy Murray: "I don't see a difference in Djokovic's game with Becker"

Novak's serve is better and his volleys are better than they were 12 months ago. His slice is nicer. He opens up the court better with angled groundstrokes and he's smarter about recognizing when to...

Re: RF on Tomic: "We all expect more...He has had a very tough season, let's be hones

Tomic is a good player, he has good hands and can trade groundstrokes with the top guys, but he's not an athlete. His reflexes are slow and there's no explosiveness in his movement (probably why his...

Re: Federer vs Sampras at USO

I think it's irrelevant how offensive baseliners fared against Sampras because none of these players were half as good as Federer. Fed is not only better offensively than anyone Sampras played...

Re: Wawrinka: Best One-handed backhand in tennis history

It's not an exaggeration. Link me a youtube video of a match where Wawrinka is losing backhand rallies. The only times I can remember him losing backhand rallies is when he gets tired or has lost...

Re: Wawrinka: Best One-handed backhand in tennis history

Yeah, he will get the ball back consistently. But I don't respect that, I only see that as a symptom of him being afraid to take risks with his groundstrokes. He's consistent because he hits loopy...

Re: Who would win? Peak Agassi vs. Peak Nole

What strategy would Agassi use to beat Djokovic? Give me an example of the kind of point they would play, and why you think Agassi would win it more often than Djokovic would.

Re: Wawrinka: Best One-handed backhand in tennis history

What I think separates Wawrinka's backhand is that he prepares really early, has a clean stroke with a perfect loop and a stable wrist (this means he can keep recreating the same stroke, giving him...

Re: Wawrinka: Best One-handed backhand in tennis history

So Sampras has a better backhand than Warinka because he has 14 slams? That's fucking stupid.

Wawrinka outrallies everyone in backhand rallies. That's how you can tell who has the best backhand.

Re: Who would win? Peak Agassi vs. Peak Nole

I know there are gonna be a lot of people saying that Agassi would beat Nole. Let me emphasize why that is ridiculous.

On serve, Agassi would never get free points. On the other hand, Agassi is easy...

Re: Wawrinka: Best One-handed backhand in tennis history

Offensively it's the best backhand ever, easily. Actually I can't think of many forehands that are better than Wawrinka's backhand. The problem is he can't defend with it. He doesn't hit well on the...

Why do Berdych/Wawrinka have more success against Murray than Nadal?

Even on hard courts, where Nadal and Murray are equally good. What is it about the match ups? Be descriptive.

Playing the best tennis of your life after an injury

Blake in 2005.
Canas in 2007 (wasn't injured, but spent a couple years away from the game).
Nalbandian in 2010, went on an 11-match winning streak upon returning (the longest of his career).
Robredo...

Re: The evolution of tennis

Djokovic is using the short angle forehand incredibly well against Potro right now.

Re: The evolution of tennis

Yes, the DTL backhand is a very important shot, I'm not going to debate which shot is the most important towards beating Nadal, that's not the point. There will never be a backhand DTL revolution,...

The evolution of tennis

Lets get some thoughts on the evolution of tennis going, this forum doesn't discuss technique enough.

I think tennis is no longer about hitting the ball hard and deep. The best players are too fast...

Predicting tiebreak winner

I've found that the player who wins the last game before the tiebreak usually ends up winning the tiebreak, due to the momentum being on his side. Anyone have stats on this?

You are the 40th ranked player in the world

You have no major strengths or weaknesses, but you are mentally tough and have good court awareness.

Against Del Potro at the Paris Masters in 08. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsgK4oNxAwA) Particularly that return game at 2-0 in the second set.

Best players at certain shots

Who are some players you see and you think "no one else hits this shot as well as this guy"?

Berdych: Best I've ever seen at putting away a high bouncing ball with his forehand. Hits the ball so...

Re: What is Gasquet's game?

I don't know about this DNA business. Watching Roddick today, I'd have said it's not in his DNA to be aggressive. But he used to kill everything 10 years ago, even those approach shots that get him...

Re: What is Gasquet's game?

You can actually hear it in the sound of their grunts. Ferrer's grunt is aggressive, like he's playing to win, and Gasquet's grunt is weak, like he's afraid of making an error.

Re: What is Gasquet's game?

The difference is Tipsarevic has a dangerous serve and he dictates points, hitting a lot of groundstroke winners. He's maximized his game and he's dangerous. With Gasquet, it's like there's no...
