Re: Murray is not unlucky to constantly face one of Djokovic/Federer in GS finals

That's because they were all playing in the same era.... (McEnroe earlier, but he had the likes of Lendl, Borg and Connors to compete with). The late 80s/early 90s was way too competitive for any one...

Re: Too early? WWW Wimbledon?

Wawrinka is more of a dark horse than Kyrgios.

Murray and Novak are the two obvious choices. Federer is always in the mix, but I'm curious to see how he will play after this atypical break.

Re: Geoffrey Blancaneaux

They're still young but none of these pups seem to have what it takes to one day rule the circuit. Nadal was only 16 when he burst onto the scene.... , he would have eaten these guys as a snack...

Re: What did you think about Djokovic using Kuerten's celebration?

It was cringey and this whole tournament he came across as trying a little too hard. Federer and Nadal seemed content to focus 100% on their matches and gained the love and respect of the tennis...

Re: Will the RG trophy boost Nole to invincibility or push him into a slump?

It's going to be a tense season for him. The olympics only come around every four years so this might be his last chance, and being as patriotic as he is this one will be very important to him. The...

The continuous weak era argument

I remember when Federer was starting to rack up the slams, and the record held by Sampras was suddenly starting to look very achievable, suddenly the 'weak era' argument came about and a lot of...

To be honest even if the Italians doped they would still suck

Re: Rafael Nadal Should Equal Roger Federer's Slam Mark in 2016

For someone who claims to hate Nadal's style of play so much, you sure spend a lot of your time watching his matches.

Re: Rafael Nadal Should Equal Roger Federer's Slam Mark in 2016

He's the defending USO champion and AO finalist, so in reality he actually has the best current results on hard court slams. I think there's a fair chance of him winning at least one of the two next...

Re: In retrospect does Kyrgios - Nadal match mean anything more than that meets the e

I don't think you're giving Kyrgios enough credit here.

It was basically a case of a player being in red-hot form, sustaining that form long enough and most importantly maintaining it at key...

Re: Should Nadal hire celebrity coach, as the three other in Big 4?

Looking back at his last showing at each slam:

-won USO
-reached AO final
-won RG
-reached Wimbledon R16

His only issue is on grass at the moment. He's still winning RG and reached two hard...

Re: Murray misses trick

Youre probably the only person who even considered that as a possibility.

Maybe in 15 years from now, but obviously not while he is an active player on the circuit.

Re: Why Fed lost in the Wimbledon final

He has the game, as we saw in the first two sets, but keeping that level up for 5 sets requires incredible fitness levels. As fit as he is, he is hitting 33 soon and has miles and miles of tennis on...
