Re: 2018 Grand Slam Winners: The Prophesy

This is too tough to predict if the top players return and stay healthy (unlike the last few years), and the next gen continue their meteoric rise.

I'm guessing the results will be heavily draw...

Re: 2017 USO Final: Nadal def Anderson 63 63 64

If Roland Garros was a statement on his complete mastery of clay court tennis, the Open was a demonstration of his tactical genius.

Rafa is often renowned for his physicality, but his...

Re: Wimbledon R128: [2] Djokovic d Klizan, 6-3 2-0 Ret.

Expected result. Delpo should give him a decent fight in the 3R, but I see no one else taking a set off him before the SF.

Re: Prediction: Cilic Will Reach Wimbledon Final

I guessed Cilic would reach the final (and lose to Novak) when the draw came out. But it appears I overestimated Andy's fitness issues (and underestimated Kyrgios's and Stan's). Cilic might beat Rafa...

Re: preparing for wimbledon .. Nadal Defeated by Berdych and Dimitrov

Things aren't looking great for Rafa on grass so far, but all he needs is a couple of good matches to clear the doubts in his head that he can still play well on grass. He currently looks "detached"...

Re: WWW Wimbledon Championships 2017 [03.07 - 16.07] - Draw in Post #1

Draw looks fairly balanced. SF1: Cilic def Kyrgios, SF2: Novak def Roger, F: Novak def Cilic is my prediction. I'll be cheering for Rafa but I highly doubt he will go far.

I see a strong chance of...

Re: Nadal withdraws from Queen's tournament on doctors' advice

Good decision. This withdrawal is going to harm his chances of going deep at Wimbledon, but as a positive, he is going to be a little bit fresher (assuming he doesn't skip Wimbledon too). Wimbledon...

Re: Predict how many GS Djokovic end up

My guess: 15-16 (2 AO and 1-2 other slams)

It's going to take a few months, but I'm sure Novak is going to be back winning the big tournaments. Let us not forget he held all the 4 slams just an...

Re: Roland Garros Final 2017: [4] Rafael Nadal def. [3] Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-

Incredible match from Rafa :) I expected a closer match than this, but Rafa's aggression stunned Stan who spent the entire match defending running side-to-side along the baseline without a chance to...

Re: Will Murray do the Calendar Year Plate Slam?

I can definitely foresee a Djokovic def. Murray final at Wimbledon too.

US Open is too far off and there might a surprise winner/finalist. I hope Andy will pull off a win at the USO, I feel for...

Re: Is Nadal better off actually being ranked # 5 for the FO?

So he either needs to win Madrid or do 285 better than Stan at Rome if he reaches the Madrid final?

Re: Who is the greatest returner of all time?

I think Agassi and Novak should swap their spots, but everyone else is more or less around the right spot (no comment on Rosewall who I have never seen play :)) .

Re: Is Nadal better off actually being ranked # 5 for the FO?

If (a big IF) Rafa continues to play like he has over the past few weeks, he should make the final as you mentioned. But beating Novak in the final here will be tough. I think he would have a higher...

Re: Novak Djokovic wins Laureus Sportsman of the Year 2016

This was essentially sealed once he won the USO. Stupendous season from an unreal player. Well deserved :clap2:

This MC trophy must be truly special to Rafa given the fact he was losing to nobodies over the past couple of seasons. The win obviously doesn't make him the favorite at RG (or any tournament Novak...

Re: Djokovic's improvement in his serve made him kinda unfair.

Agreed. Those 1-2% changes often decide the result at the very top of the sport, and Novak's improved serve has basically pushed him up a notch from his previous level (which was already...

Re: WWW IW SF: [1]N.Djokovic vs. [4]R.Nadal

True. But none of that matters when Novak plays Rafa or Roger. He has played them so many times over the years that his anticipation dominates his current form.

Re: IW QF:[4] R.Nadal def. [5] K.Nishikori 6-4 6-3

Great match from Rafa :) I hope he carries his ground game form from this match to the clay season where he would have a great chance to win some titles.

Re: WWW IW SF: [1]N.Djokovic vs. [4]R.Nadal

Pretty much this.

I voted for Rafa in 3, but Novak will comfortably take this in 2, possibly something like 6-1, 6-3. Beyond the standard FH-BH arguments, Novak is a nightmarish serve-ROS match...

Indeed. He looks done for good this time. Fed was at a similar point in 2013 but he had his improved serve that carried him for a few more years. Rafa doesn't have a serve to fall back on and get him...

Re: Djokovic is a Great Player but Definitely Hasn't Taken Tennis to a 'New Level'

Even if one disagrees that his rally BH or ROS are at a higher level than anything ever seen, it's undeniable that the base...
