Re: Will Federer reach #2 on the Open Era Titles list in 2017?

That scenario would be a wet dream for his fans. I understand the optimism but could see a letdown instead after this huge career win he's just had.

Re: Who Is Greater - Nadal or Djokovic?

Tough shit. Masters events count nine - NINE- yet are only played on two surfaces (or in three 'conditions' - to keep Matt01 happy). Lucky lucky players who favour hard or clay courts, bad news for...

I agree.

And I think he should just forego RG to have more rest and maximize his chances at Wimby.

This is why I feel like this isn't his last slam. Had he had to face dimitrov or never had 5 setters we could have said something like well at least of course he didn't have to play nadal. To play 3...

Re: What if Federer ends up with losing h2h against all Big 4 members?

Nope. Jack Nicklaus is.

(He won 18 majors - the record.)

Re: Nadal believes Djokovic's peak level of play is higher than Federer's

Re: AO Final: Federer def Nadal 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3

It just so happens that his OCD becomes particularly complex and long-winded when facing break points on serve. Hmmm.

Re: Nadal defeats Federer 7-5 3-6 7-6(3) 3-6 6-2 to win Australian Open 2009

Well, it was pretty frustrating and felt momentous at the time - final confirmation that Federer's reign at the top had been taken by his younger foe on all surfaces...at least that's how it seemed....

Re: Predict the top 10 in 2018

If he continues his current rate of progress, he should make that by end of this season. Then, it's a case of waiting until the wheels come off Murray and the three greats.

Re: Who Is Greater - Nadal or Djokovic?

Djokovic regrettably failed to make the final in 2012. He did however do an excellent Bambi-on-ice/drunken master impression in the semi that year.

Re: Berdych: "My goal remains to win a Grand Slam"

The serve change doesn't look to be working so far. How long has he been using that new ball toss? First I saw it was in Melbourne. If it's still very new, he may 'grow' into it.

Still, it won't...

Re: Montpellier Final: A. Zverev def. Gasquet 7-6(4), 6-3

Only been able to watch him a handful of times but I'd say his backhand is stronger than his forehand and probably his major weapon. (Serve can also be decent.)

The Raonic who wrote this comes across as articulate and intelligent and human. Good read.

If Federer were the same age as nole/murray/nadal...

...he'd be both 29 and 30 years old at the same time.

Re: Milos Raonic Won’t Stop Until He Is Best in the World

This argument is all the more hilarious considering Raonic in the video in OP never once refers to him not stopping til he's the best in the world.

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada IC report published)

I'm a big fan of Federer but I see why many might be suspicious of his victory at AO, coming after a six -month absence from injury. It's reaching Nadal-2013 levels of surprise. How do you come back...
