Re: US Open R1: [8] Nadal def. Coric 6-3 6-2 4-6 6-4

This is the first time I saw the kid in a serious match. He's for sure the real deal. He'll definitely win a slam one day. Not sure how many, it depends how much he wants it. The competition has been...

Good on Verdasco. Not sure if he'll make it past the 2nd round though.

Re: This Djokovic draw is the biggest joke of all time

How is Seppi and Goffin easy??? If they show up they can be a pain.

Re: Does Djokovic now have the easiest route ever to the final of a Grand Slam?

Whether Nadal shows up or not he's getting his ass kicked by Djokovic.

Re: Novak Djokovic has a better forehand than Federer

They are both amazing forehands. Though the way I look at it is Federer does an amazing job finding angles while Djokovic does a better job clipping the baseline quite literally forcing opponents to...

Re: Dimitrov will make the US Open semifinals

Not impossible at all. Cilic is completely out of form, he can prey on him. It depends how much he wants it, the bracket isn't impossible. I just can't see him getting past Nishikori at all. Kei is...

Re: Sam Querrey should be ashamed of himself

He's scum. Truly detestable. Sampras and Agassi deserve a serious successor.

Re: WWW: US Open R1: Nadal vs. Coric

Coric in 4 sets. He needs to take advantage of Rafa's awful form.

Re: WWW US Open 2015 (w/ Draw Discussion)

Djokovic has this. Yeah sure he has Seppi and Goffin. Tricky early round opponents but they're not always consistent players, especially the former. Should he handle them he just has to worry about...

No, Djokovic will kill that underarm serve.

Re: Would anyone be surprised if Federer actually won a major at this age?

Although I agree to an extent, Murray/Wawrinka are known to have shown mental weaknesses, though both men have improved considerably within the last few years. If both men mentally show up, then yes...

Re: 2015 US Open discussion thread

The one tournament where anything can happen.

Djokovic as always is the default favorite.

Wawrinka looks mentally gone, then again in recent years his attention is on slams not smaller tournaments...

Re: Does Nadal have a chance at US Open 2015 if he steps up to baseline, ala 2013?

I see one slam tops and that's 90% likely next year's Roland Garros if he regains his form, serve, and return of service. U.S. Open is just a terrible area for his body especially at this point in...

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?

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...
