Re: Rafa/Fed/Djoker: 3-way race to ruin each other's legacies

If any of the 3 players existed without the other 2 then their record would be ridiculous.

Re: Why Does Noone Want To Play Tulsa Challenger?

The list of seeds is decent for a challenger but the rest of the field is super low rankingwise.

Re: What record you want FEDERER to have before he retire

I'd like him to be the first player to win 20 something slams.
Also I'd like him to break Santoro's record, but just because that means he'll have to play until hes 35 :)

Why Does Noone Want To Play Tulsa Challenger?

Seriously cut off is 1023 for direct entry for it this week.
Futures in the USA often have much stronger fields.

I just checked and cut off was 722 in 2010, 555 in 2009, 384 in 2008.

Seems odd...

Worst Player To Ever Reach A Grand Slam Semifinal?

I think it would be Vladimir Voltchkov.
Carrer high 25 and never won a title or went past the second round of a slam any other time.
Does anyone think one is worse?

Re: Will Nadal Retire Before Federer?

If Federer is content to lower his expectations he could play on til 35/36 like Agassi, and then it would be possible, but I don't see him playing that long any more.

This time in 2009 it would...

Re: Is the format of tennis grand slams better than World Cups and Olympic sports?

Yes. The 128 knock out draw is used in tennis is great.
I think the World Cup definitely would be better if they used a 128 tennis style draw.

It would be much more exciting in the early rounds...

Re: Juniors who fail at the senior level.

Martin Lee - won the boys doubles at Wimbledon and reached World No 1 in junior rankings but never did much in seniors - briefly inside the top 100 for just a few weeks I believe.

Re: Will Roddick Be A Top 12 Seed For Wimbledon?

He made the final in 2009 remember, which will add on a few points for the Wimbledon 2 years seeding adjustment.

He also lost in the third round at Queens last year so has points to gain there.

Could/Should Nadal Skip Queens If He Wins All 5 Clay Events

If he wins all 5 clay events then plays Queens as well it may be playing too much and he may not be 100% before Wimbledon.

He has enough experience at Wimbledon to not really need to play at...

Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

Good thread.
Could anyone do this for previous years say 5,10,15 years ago so we can compare how the game has changed over time.
I imagine you would get about 40% serve volleyers 15-20 yrs ago.

Rock Comparison To Tennis

I think that serve and volley tennis in the early 00s can be compared to what happened in rock music in the early 90s when Nirvana got big ang Hair Metal died out.

Are you glad that Serve & Volley is pretty much extinct now?

I think I first knew for sure what was happening to the game when I watched Wimbledon 2002, but did other people see it coming before then?

It seemed to just change really fast.
