Re: Acapulco QF: [Q] Harrison def. [6] Karlovic 4-6 7-6 (0) 7-6 (4)

I agree that this is the best Harrison has played since he was still considered the next US tennis prodigy. Those who say he has a low ceiling mean to say he has no apparent weapon. This is true. I...

Re: WWW Delray Beach F: (4) Ivo Karlovic vs. Donald Young

Karlovic is not the type of player to beat an in-form Donald Young. Young, possibly in three. I wonder what Young's full potential is. Fascinating player.

Re: Memphis R2: (6) Johnson def. Brown 4-6 7-5 7-6 (7-3)

Brown was not the better player as Johnson won all the important points.

Re: Sam Q - the last "Mickey Mouse" of decline of American tennis

Agreed. Not since Roddick came up was there a large crop of young players with such potential. The next 10 years should be much better than the last 10

Re: Is Agassi lying?

Federer winning two more slams is about as likely as Agassi winning two more slams.

Re: RG R1: Sock def. Almagro 5-0 ret.

Fortunate for Sock, but it should be said that he looked brilliant. This is as trim as he's ever been. He is by far the best US prospect since Roddick. The forehand is, my God, ridiculous. Please...

Re: WTF 2013: Interviews and Pressers: Fed says slams (other than French) on his racq

He's made comments like this many times. But his slam record post 2009 speaks volumes. He could still win one of course, but he is not a top 3 contender at any slam. It doesn't even take...

Re: WWW Shanghai SF: Nadal vs. Del Potro

DelPotro's best tennis is beautiful to watch. It's kind of the perfect example of piercing ball bashing. He can his screamers from anywhere, from either side, and better than anyone else on tour...

Re: WWW Shanghai SF: Nadal vs. Del Potro

Are you kidding? The h2h is 8-3 Nadal and Del Potro hasn't beaten him since 2009, the only year that he had victories over Nadal. This h2h is anything but favorable for Del Potro. One great match...

Re: Peak Federer vs. peak Nadal at the US Open

Peak Federer played peak Nadal on grass in 2008 and on Aussie hard courts in 2009. Nadal won both. On USO hard courts the story's no different. People should keep in mind that Nadal just beat...

Re: Beijing F: (1) Djokovic def. (2) Nadal 6-3, 6-4

It does mean something, but nothing compared to French Open and especially US Open. But honestly it's a fast low-bouncing hard court. Of course Djokovic would have his chances here.

The difference between Nadal and Wozniacki is that Nadal has won 13 slams, 3rd most in open era. The icing on his cake is that he won two hard court matches against Djokovic this year and went...

Re: Looking back at federer's career......

I believe 2011 was Federer's best shot. In 2006 Nadal was also playing sub-par and that is Federer's strongest year bar none. But in 2011 Nadal looked weak and Federer was in very good form, so I was...

Re: Is Nadal simply a better player than Djokovic?

Yeah but that is still 2 grass victories vs. 1, plus Nadal has 2 Wimbledon titles and 5 finals. That is quite a grass pedigree compared to Djokovic. Nadal being better on grass doesn't exactly depend...

Re: USO Final 2013: Heroic GOAT Nadal def. Djokovic 6-2 3-6 6-4 6-1

Nadal being able to redefine the Djokovic rivalry after what happened in 2011 has never been done before. When a better player comes along many champions have faltered. Borg to McEnroe, Federer to...

Re: How will be your reaction once Rafa catches 14 GS slam count Pistol Pete?

He will catch Sampras and he has a 50/50 shot of beating Federer (as of his form and record TODAY). Sampras is an all-time GOAT though. But if Nadal can win another USO, then certainly he can win...

Re: Is Nadal season this year starting to be better then Nole 2011 season?

Right now it's nowhere near Djokovic's 2011 as 3 slams > 1. However if Nadal wins the USO it's a bit closer as Nadal now has 5 Masters Crowns, which is impressive (Djokovic also did this in 2011)....

Re: A friendly reminder after Nadal's dominance of the USO Series

Nadal going undefeated on hard courts (specifically Canada and Cincy) is epic going into the USO though. He has never been so consistent on this surface. Really I'll be surprised if he doesn't win...

Re: Which player in good form would have had a chance of beating Nadal this year on H

There are no surprises. Djokovic and to a much lesser extent Murray (and really only b/c we don't know if the "new" Murray has a better shot than the old one did). Although Nadal beat Djokovic in a...

Re: John Isner Doing 'Merica Proud

He is definitely our best hope. With the right draw and tactics, he *could* win a slam. Besides the obvious serve, he has a massive forehand and as has been pointed out he moves SO well for his size....

Re: Cincinnati F: John Isner vs (4) Rafael Nadal

I think this Nadal against this Isner on these courts is a tantalizing match-up. Low-bouncing fast hard courts and players with bite on their groundstrokes are historically a bad match-up for Nadal....

Re: Cincinnati R2: Nadal routines Becker 6-2 6-2

Nadal is fascinating because he was able to rewrite the script after 2009 and because he is now rewriting the script again after those 7 months off. It seemed so unlikely that he'd ever be at this...

Baker's return is magnificent. I like to sit and imagine how American tennis might have looked the past decade if Baker had enjoyed an injury-free career. There might have been a big serve/big return...
