Re: Why does Nadal have more Slam seasons than Federer?

What is better: to win 14 slams in ten seasons or to win 17 slams in nine seasons?

Re: Federer declined.

As it has been said, Roger 2015 is a different player from Roger 2012, the last year he was No. 1. But he is still a very good player, maybe the best after Novak in these years. He has acquired new...

Re: Novak took more slam from Roger or Rafa?

Without Novak, Roger should have won 6 more slams:
AO 2008
AO 2011
AO 2016
W 2014
W 2015
USO 2015
So, he would be at 23. Steffi´s mark.

Re: Biggest wasted chance to win a GS from Federer (starting 2014)

US Open 2014. That excruciating match against La Monf was too much for him at this stage of the tournament. Cilic was not in god mode. Roger´s diffuse play made Cilic look like the superplayer he...

Re: Why is Nadal so uncreative?

I don´t see any connection between Chopin and Chodull except, maybe, for the former´s winter spent at Valldemosa, not far from Manacor.
But Chopin never had any problem with his style. He dominated...

Re: Will Federer use the SABR at AO?

This is now part of his arsenal. So yes, he'll use it at AO. Had he used it on BPs against Nole, maybe he would have converted at least one.

Re: Federer won't retire after Rio Olympics...

He´s waiting for Djoko to grow old, and inherit this weak era from him. Then he´ll win slams again, even a CYGS. Why not? Tennis runs in his blood.:wink2::wink2::wink2:

Lubicic posesses a mature and analytical mentality. He's far from being a clown. I believe he can help Roger to dillucidate some complex mental issues about BP conversion and shot selection. He may...

Re: Basel SF - [1] Federer def. Sock 6-3 6-4

The submissive attitude of Sock at 1*-5 made Roger feel this would be an anticlimactic victory, so he abstained himself of dispensing a breadstick and let his pupil play another three games in a...

Re: Karlovic needs to hit sixty aces in Paris to break another record, will he make i

I hope Dr. Ivo is a good chessplayer. He should look for a "perpetual check" position during his first Paris Match. In tennis, perpetual check is not a draw, fortunately. . .

I wouldn´t go that far. But I have just read that lack of testosterone causes anal itching.

Re: Let's define criteria of greatness.

A more objective approach could be to take as factor the number of points at each title. Slams: 2000. WTF: 1200. Masters: 1000. Other criteria (#1 weeks, YE#1, OG, DC in that order), would serve...

Re: What if court lines had sensors in the future?

It would be something like the GPS technology. Several cameras detect and transmit the ball's coordinates as they appear on their own screen. A central computer receives those data and process them...

Re: Is the SABR dead?

SABR could punish servers that remain glued to the baseline. This is Fed's legacy to his beloved S&V.

Re: Which Swiss would Djokovic prefer to face in the final US Open?

If Djoko stumps mugic, he would prefer facing Fed. But he should prefer facing Wawa.

Re: Proof that Federer is less fit than Nadal and Djokovic

There are other variables involved. If you are a good and fit player, you will seldom have to play five sets. If you get to five sets, it is because you aren´t having a good day, and then the...
