Re: Will Murray do the Calendar Year Plate Slam?

I can definitely foresee a Djokovic def. Murray final at Wimbledon too.

US Open is too far off and there might a surprise winner/finalist. I hope Andy will pull off a win at the USO, I feel for...

Re: Is Nadal better off actually being ranked # 5 for the FO?

So he either needs to win Madrid or do 285 better than Stan at Rome if he reaches the Madrid final?

Re: Who is the greatest returner of all time?

I think Agassi and Novak should swap their spots, but everyone else is more or less around the right spot (no comment on Rosewall who I have never seen play :)) .

Re: Is Nadal better off actually being ranked # 5 for the FO?

If (a big IF) Rafa continues to play like he has over the past few weeks, he should make the final as you mentioned. But beating Novak in the final here will be tough. I think he would have a higher...

Re: Novak Djokovic wins Laureus Sportsman of the Year 2016

This was essentially sealed once he won the USO. Stupendous season from an unreal player. Well deserved :clap2:

Re: Sad times. Nadal looks really done.

This MC trophy must be truly special to Rafa given the fact he was losing to nobodies over the past couple of seasons. The win obviously doesn't make him the favorite at RG (or any tournament Novak...

This youngster Novak plays well. I see a bright future ahead for him.

Re: Djokovic's improvement in his serve made him kinda unfair.

Agreed. Those 1-2% changes often decide the result at the very top of the sport, and Novak's improved serve has basically pushed him up a notch from his previous level (which was already...

Re: WWW IW SF: [1]N.Djokovic vs. [4]R.Nadal

True. But none of that matters when Novak plays Rafa or Roger. He has played them so many times over the years that his anticipation dominates his current form.

Re: IW QF:[4] R.Nadal def. [5] K.Nishikori 6-4 6-3

Great match from Rafa :) I hope he carries his ground game form from this match to the clay season where he would have a great chance to win some titles.

Re: WWW IW SF: [1]N.Djokovic vs. [4]R.Nadal

Pretty much this.

I voted for Rafa in 3, but Novak will comfortably take this in 2, possibly something like 6-1, 6-3. Beyond the standard FH-BH arguments, Novak is a nightmarish serve-ROS match...

Re: Sad times. Nadal looks really done.

Indeed. He looks done for good this time. Fed was at a similar point in 2013 but he had his improved serve that carried him for a few more years. Rafa doesn't have a serve to fall back on and get him...

Re: Djokovic is a Great Player but Definitely Hasn't Taken Tennis to a 'New Level'

Depends on what your definitions of Tennis and new level are.

Even if one disagrees that his rally BH or ROS are at a higher level than anything ever seen, it's undeniable that the base...

Thumbs up Where will Novak Djokovic lose his first match in 2016?

Let us see if MTF gets this poll right :smile2:

Novak looks in prime form and there is a good chance he will pick up where he left off his unstoppable train in 2015.

His longtime buddies Rafa,...

Re: Nadal: ''Since I know this sport I never saw somebody playing at this level''

Welcome to Novak fans club Rafa :facepalm:

Yes, Novak did play well. OK. He played very well and deserves a compliment from the opponent. But Rafa sounds like a long time Novak fanboy here. No...

Voted for Rafa, but I think Novak will take this one pretty easily on this surface given their current levels. Rafa taking a set here should be considered a big positive for him.

Re: Doha R1: (2)Rafael Nadal def. Pablo Carreno-Busta 6-7(5) 6-3 6-1

Good depth of shot and BH. OK FH.

Same old serve - looks like he did not put any effort on this aspect in the off-season. He was starting a considerable number of rallies on a disadvantage in...

Re: Is Nadal jealous of Federer and Djokovic?

Pretty much this.

Why would he be jealous of Fed or Novak when he is barely able to beat Top 10 players himself? Champions enjoy and celebrate their own wins, not their opponent's losses.

Re: WWW: US Open Final: [1] Novak Djokovic vs [2] Roger Federer

No prizes for guessing the result. Anyone who makes inroads into Fed's service games will startle him, and Novak is best equipped to do exactly that with his ridiculous ROS. I just can not see Fed...
