Re: Can a player have a better backhand than forehand?

It's a tricky question because most don't really look at this topic in the correct light.

The vast majority of players have a forehand that is a significantly more effective shot than their...

Re: How man slams would Sampras have won in this era?

The game is very different now than it was in Sampras' heyday. Less variety, bounce, and speed in the courts. Racquet and string technology has improved. There are better athletes playing the game...

Re: Newport F: Isner d. Hewitt 7-6 6-4

Big win for Isner. A real shame that we didn't get to see Rampras vs. Isner in that final, but Hewitt still shows enough heart to fight his way to a final here. Just not enough game left to handle a...

Re: Djordje "wild card" Djokovic

Why doesn't Novak give his secret to his family members? It is surely odd that Novak appears to be one of the very best athletes on the ATP tour, yet his family members with the same genetics appear...

Re: Newport R2: Becker def. Raonic 6-3, 6-3

The return suffers more than the serve improves for these guys. That is...if the serve even improves at all...seems like it may be easier to hit an ace or an unreturnable serve but you're right about...

Everybody in Mexico that can run, jump, or swim has already made it to America.

Re: Federer: H2H record vs. Nadal not important

I agree with you, but there are certainly many who would make the argument that Federer would have like 5 French Open titles and such with no Nadal around...which would make many believe he is one of...

Re: Federer: H2H record vs. Nadal not important

People realize this. But the underlying train of thought here is....

If Federer is the 2nd best player on clay of his era(and perhaps Top 3-5 all-time on the surface), and a true GOAT and greatest...

Re: Diets of the top tennis players

I wouldn't be so sure about this. The GI difference between the 2 types of pasta probably isn't a big deal to these guys, especially considering that they're really eating a lot of this stuff...

Re: Coach Annacone Compares Federer and Sampras

It was pretty clear as day that Pete slowed down dramatically once he had broken the records he felt were important. He couldn't have known that somebody else would come along and break those records...

Re: Newport R2: Becker def. Raonic 6-3, 6-3

You can't blame the surface for serving under 50%. If Raonic had more than a serve, he may have been able to make up for that....but this is pretty expected when he has a bad serving day.

Re: Who had better carreer: Nalbandian or Davydenko?

The answer is Nalbandian by a small bit. But I am glad to see them compared though....I always thought it was kind of dumb that so many slobber all over Nalbandian but a guy like Davydenko really...

Re: Eastbourne F: Roddick def. Seppi 6-3, 6-2

Well i'm surprised that Andy had it in him to win this. He has looked like crap since beating Federer earlier this year, and I expected another early round exit. I still expect the same at Wimbledon,...

Re: Who do you feel is the most athletic player on the tour?

Monfils is the best natural athlete. There are some "enhanced" athletes out there that give him a good run, but they don't really belong in this discussion.

Re: Samuel Groth breaks serve speed world record (163mph/263km/h) - [NOW OFFICIAL]

I'll lump this in with other silly shots like Monfils' "120+ mph forehand".

I'd believe this guy hitting a 155+ mph serve way before i'd believe Karlovic doing it....but get real, breaking the...

Re: Mardy Fish and John Isner fire back at Ivan Ljubicic over Twitter

Just when you hoped the tennis world was finally rid of the bald loser Ljubicic, he decides to stick his nose where it doesn't belong. If he has a problem, he needs to knock off the internet warrior...

Re: Is Ivo Karlovic's first serve the greatest weapon in tennis history?

What you really need to see is what shot wins the most points right off the yes it would definitely be a serve. Then you need to see who wins the highest % of points off of first serve...

Re: Murray : "I can still become the best in the world this year"

Go big or go home. It's the right way to look at things....if he isn't going into every tournament really believing that he is the best player there and that he'll win, then really he shouldn't even...

Re: Isner On Clay

Isner's serve is still massive on clay, still penetrates the court well and he can uses his spin even more effectively on the surface. Add that John's forehand is still big enough that it penetrates...

Re: Stepanek "gives" Tipsarevic middle finger instead of a handshake. Proof added pos

If I didn't care about shaking the guy's hand, i'm sure that that could happen. Regardless, just because it isn't a proper handshake doesn't mean he's flipping Janko off.

Re: Stepanek "gives" Tipsarevic middle finger instead of a handshake. Proof added pos

Re: Miami Final: Djokovic vanquishes Murray 6-1, 7-6(4)

Murray back to pushing all day, delusional in thinking it will create a different result. The Scots seem to be quite a delusional bunch, judging from Murray and World Life.

Re: Is Djokovic's defense now better than Nadal's ever was?

No. Young Nadal was the best defender ever, and his defense is a huge reason as to why he has been so successful. He didn't have a good serve, return, or backhand. His forehand was above average but...
