Re: Why does Djokovic only win the AO and not USO?

Conditions are indeed a little different, but in general Novak plays well at both so I don't think his level is too much different. Yes, he has lost several USO finals but they were finals at the...

Re: Should Wimbledon use the Centre Court only starting from QFs?

While this would obviously break from tradition, who would ever deny perfectly fresh grass? Many pros comment on how special fresh grass is so I'm sure if anything like this came to fruition there...

Re: Should Wimbledon use the Centre Court only starting from QFs?

I really like OP's idea. The fact that we would be able to see the top players face each other on fresh grass at the end of the event would be amazing. So many matches between top players missed on...

Re: 31 years old Federer being N°1 in the 2012 "tough" era Poll and conclutions.

What is funny is that this whole thread is based on individual bias and zero actual fact or any real correlation. I guess everyone must be in the Federer and Nadal camps, they apparently know more...

Re: Chang will coach Samurai Kei in 2014.

Chang was definitely one of the smartest players out there strategically so I think they'll be a good team.

Re: Who misses Carpet?

Any of the big events? What were these big events? Paris was really the only big tournament played on carpet during Federer's career and he still made 2 QFs in a row in 2002/2003 at Paris losing to...

Re: Who misses Carpet?

Not sure your issue with Federer and carpet as if he can't play on it. 5 out of the first 7 finals Federer reached in his pro career were played on carpet. The one time the WTF/YEC was played on...

Re: All court tennis was killed in 2008 - Discuss ideas to bring it back.

So players like Edberg, McEnroe, Becker Rafter, Henman, and so on were not enjoyable? No one is looking to force players to S&V 100% of the time again, but to think this isn't an issue is silly...

Re: Rafa's worst vs Murray's best surface?

Rafa has been much more convincing on grass than hardcourts despite the upsets at Wimbledon the last 2 events :shrug: Rafa has only played Queens a handful of times and Halle only once obviously, so...

Re: JMac: Ditch doubles tennis from major tournaments

While the money aspect is certainly welcome for many singles players, I don't think removing doubles necessarily would help because many lower ranked players play doubles on the side anyways. If...

Re: Rafael “RAFA” Nadal is on the Top of The Slow List

A server should let his opponent catch his breath? So you consider that cheating but waiting 40 seconds to kill the momentum after your opponent has won an important rally isn't? The game is at...

Re: The average ranking of Federer Nadal, Djokovic and Murray Grand Slam Finals oppon

That is all you wanted to dispute from my post when that wasn't even the point? Once again, this is all merely bias based on which opinion you prefer.

Re: The average ranking of Federer Nadal, Djokovic and Murray Grand Slam Finals oppon

Doesn't that make any GS wins by Rafa, Novak and Murray over Federer inflated as well since he is just a "good player" as you're hinting and they are benefitting from an inflated Federer who...

Re: The average ranking of Federer Nadal, Djokovic and Murray Grand Slam Finals oppon

The comparison is silly and doesn't prove anything. Just shows that either the field was deeper or there was a lack of top players during Federer's years. Pick your bias.

Re: Future of Tennis: Google Glass & Augmented Reality?

Not sure if something like that would ever get into tennis. That would change the entire game. It would then mean just another piece of equipment to play tennis for juniors/amateurs. You can say...

Re: WTF F: Novak Djokovic defeats Rafael Nadal 2:0 (6-3, 6-4)

Too good from Novak. What an interesting start it will be next year for him. Rafa, on the other hand, has still been making it to the tail end of these events, so nothing to be ashamed of.

Re: Question about the forehand

Mine is definitely closer to the waist, especially when going for a bigger shot, but I'll still hit many forehands that end up above my shoulder.

Re: Federer should hire Gil Reyes

Federer's form doesn't really have much to do with Federer's fitness as much as it does with Federer's timing and mental strength. Yes, I can imagine Federer certainly doesn't feel like a 25 year...

Re: Rosol's reverse serve

No, in the classical sense of an American Twist, Rosol's serve was merely a reverse spin. Bit of a club shot since it is difficult to execute consistently, but certainly can be effective. American...

Re: Highest peak level between these players ?

Between those specific events with those players then of course Del Potro can really only be the real winner in this poll despite facing a sub-par Rafa and was perhaps a tad fortunate against Federer...

Re: What would be the most pressing change/overhaul you advocate for WTF?

I've had some suggestions, but money just dictates everything sadly.

1. Change the location more often. The YEC should be used to market the best players we have to offer everywhere possible. ...

He wants to have an even more erratic toss than Lendl :lol: yeah Berdych does toss that ball up really high, but to be quite honest, I think his issues are just merely mental and nothing really...

Re: Paris SF: Ferrer routines Nadal 6-3 7-5

What a match from David, but I wonder if this will cost Rafa for YE#1? It certainly is quite possible that Novak picks up both Paris and WTF while Rafa goes winless, so I hope he doesn't see this as...
