Re: Believe it or not Federer still has a chance to win a slam

These are some valid points Mike.

Whether it happens or not it remains to be seen.

Though I'm not a big fan of vulturing slams, it is still one way to get the job done.

Re: Are grand slams weighted a bit too heavily when rating players historically?

I think slams should remain the weights of comparison.

Master shields, olympic gold medal, 500 series, Davis Cup etc. Can be used as additional references in situations where the slam counts and...

Re: Rate this years Wimbledon

I'll rate it several ways:

Quality 5 setters: I'll give it a 9/10 even if the quantity wasn't that much (there was some shit ones but the great ones compensate). You had Djokovic coming down two...

Re: Wimbledon 2015 Djokovic's Most Difficult Run Ever?

Kohlschreiber> Lorenzi
Nieminen > Giraldo
Tomic> Mahut
Anderson> Hewitt (In regard to performance)
Cilic< Ferrer (Ferrer on...

Re: Wimbledon 2015 Djokovic's Most Difficult Run Ever?

I have mixed feelings about this one.

Opponents in the run: Granollers, Dodig, Troicki, Almagro, Berdych, Federer, and Murray.

Taking a look at their respective positions, Granollers seems to be a...

Re: Biggest schooling among Nadal's recent Wimbledon early losses

I feel Rosol was a formidable foe for Nadal at Wimbledon. They went back and forth the first time and the subsequent time it was still another tough match. Even if Nadal were to lose 2-0 to Rosol I...

Re: Do you feel like the season is already over?

While I enjoy all 4 tournaments, I tend to prefer U.S. Open a bit more than the rest. I find it a bit more unpredictable. Something is always bound to happen. Upsets and whatnot.

Re: Gael Monfils: very overrated as a tennis player

His athleticism was admirable, yet his mechanics, choice of shot selection, and injury history are what inevitably leads him to where he is today. Still found it remarkable that he won 3 junior slams...

Re: Wimbledon 2015 Djokovic's Most Difficult Run Ever?

I recall some moments in that tournament quite vividly. The first two opponents were weak, I didn't pay attention to Niland and Berlocq. Davydenko is a guy whose been to the SFs of that tournament...

Re: Which event(s) will Djokovic win the rest of 2015...

I just want him to win Cincinnati. He needs to deal with the hostile crowd and I think he will win their hearts. I think he'll get it done, he'll be pumped for this one. This, Shanghai, and WTF are...

Wimbledon 2015 Djokovic's Most Difficult Run Ever?

There's always conversation about Djokovic getting bad draws or unlucky ones. With that said this recent run at Wimbledon 2015 has caught my attention. I think among the 9 slams he's won, this one is...

Re: Will Dimitrov or Raonic Win a Title this Year?

I had no expectations for Milos since he's a serve-bot.

As for Dimitrov, I feel he's a bit of a let down after the good runs he had at Australia and Wimbledon last year.

He lacks the hunger, drive,...

Re: Borna Coric will never become No. 1

Re: Is Federer Finished? Should He Retire?

There are two ways to look at this issue.

What's more important for you as a tennis fan?

Should Roger Federer have retired on a high note after winning a grand slam? (And not have crashed out to...

Re: Thank you Novak

Nadal is done mate. The body can only do so much. He's been a remarkable athlete for getting to 14 considering his injury crises. You can thank Djokovic for being the beast to put an end to Nadal's...

As impressive as Federer was I think Djokovic will step up for the special occasion. Djokovic again in 5 close sets.

Djokovic in 5 sets. I think the delay will give him a kind of off final.

Re: The biggest underachiever of the era: Berdych

Berdych should practice going down the line more with his backhand. It'll help him out a lot in the final stages.
