Re: Mario Ancic - from beating Federer to juris doctor

Probably a weak era in law schools.

Re: MTF is losing it.

You make some good points. But I'm a Federer fan who highly respects Djokovic's (and Nadal's) talent and achievements. So not all of us are like that.

Re: Did Nadal save tennis?

There are so many if's in the history of the universe and earth. What are the odds that intelligent tennis-playing beings exist on Earth at all?

Re: Let’s put the mental/match-fitness excuses for Nadal to rest: Decline is fundamen

He's almost 29 so even one more slam win from this point on would be a great achievement. Federer won only one slam after he was the age Nadal is now. Chances are he'll regain his form and be a solid...

Re: Madrid Final: Murray def Nadal 6-3 6-2

Nadal's legendary career clay win percentage is going down the drain rapidly. Anyway, I'm sure he'll regain his form later this season.

Re: Is Clayray a genuine threat at the FO?

Of course, what makes you think people were joking in the first place? The FO is essential in Clayray's quest for the Grand Slam.

Re: Nishikori is Blatantly Overrated

He just took 7 games off Clayray. If anything he is underrated.

Re: WWW Madrid F: Rafael Nadal vs Andy "Clayray" Murray

Clayray in 3, but it will be hard-fought as Nadal will approach peak form.

Re: Madrid R3: Isner def. Kyrgios 63 67(7) 64

He's top 30 already. Even if he already reached his peak level, which is unlikely, he can have a respectable career.

Being ranked high is supposed to be complicated and extremely difficult, only achievable by the few very best players in the world.

Re: Lleyton Hewitt to skip French Open and focus on (last) Wimbledon and Davis Cup

That will be a nice long farewell tour, and he can focus on playing four grass tournaments, unless he needs rest in between.

This also means that Federer will move to #2 on the slam participation...

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

Federer won title #70 late 2011, so it took him 3.5 years to win the last 15. Getting to 100 seems unlikely and would take at least 4-5 years. But not entirely impossible if he keeps playing until...

Re: Who will hit 100 first?

The bold part is not serious I hope? Prize money for master's and slams today is 2-3 as much as a decade ago when Federer won many of his titles.

For example, Federer received 575k pound for his...

Re: Djokovic skips Madrid Open

A missed opportunity to win 5 master's in a row, as well as 7 tournaments of master's level and up in a row. But if he feels this improves his chances to win FO then it's hard to argue against.

Re: Will Novak take a DOUBLE Career GS ??

Nadal still has a better chance, but I can definitely see Djokovic winning at least 2 of the required 3 slams.

Re: If Nole were to win CYGS and CYM1000, where would it put him?

He'd have 11 slams, 29 Masters (a record, 2 ahead of Nadal), a CYGS, and a highly unique season of unprecedented dominance. I'd still rate him below Federer (6 more slams) and probably just below...

Nadal by a small margin because of his Olympic Gold.

Of course, you need a popular sport to become a popular player. But the supporting cast is replaceable.

Re: Have we been living in the Djokovic Era for years without even realising it?

Djokovic is certainly the best player over the 2011-April 2015 period, but I agree with others that this doesn't automatically mean that he dominated the entire period.

To see why, let's look at...

Re: Federer fans - Would you exchange Wimby 15 for RG 15 ?

I'd prefer a FO for him if I had to choose one slam. USO would be my second choice, Wimbledon third.

At both USO and Wimbledon he shares the open era record, but at the USO it has been much longer...
