Re: Bastad QF: Dolgopolov def. (5) Khachanov 7-6(5) 3-6 7-6(2) 2 MPs saved

I watched Khachanov last year in Båstad as well where he lost to Ukrainian Donskoy after having match points. Even though Karen was apparently the one with the bigger game (in particular serve) and...

Re: Bastad QF: Kuznetsov def. [7] Schwartzman 6-3, 6-3

The worst and probably quickest one of today's QFs in Båstad. Serves were the key: Andrey was steady, got through the match unbroken and hit quite a few unreturnables; Diego in his turn had problems...

Re: Bastad QF: (8) Ferrer def. Laaksonen 7-5 3-6 7-6(3) (Saved 2 MP)

This was the last game played today, quality was so-so but provided some drama. Ferrer got the best start but looked a bit tired in the 2nd and missed some backhands, at the same time Laaksonen was...

Re: Bastad QF: [6] Verdasco def. [2] Ramos-Vinolas 6-3, 6-2

I attended the event today with my son, we got to watch most of all 4 QFs. This was the best one quality-wise, Ramos Vinolas was not bad at all but Verdasco actually played according to his abilities...

Re: Losses you can't get over

USO F 1980. Borg should have earned at least the career GS, and he could probably have had a proper GS had he won that year. He got to the final in -81 too, but wasn't really close to winning then.

Re: Agassi: "Nadal number one [on the all-time list], Federer number two"

Agassi joins the surprisingly large number of people who think tennis is a game between only 2 players, and the other guys do not count. That is only slightly better than the hopeless ones comparing...

Re: Which player is the most unlucky?

Come on...players winning slams 4-5 different years (or 10) do not belong in an unluckiest poll.

Re: How relevant is WTFs in GOAT discussions?

WTF is historically considered an important part of GOATness, and has existed at least for three or four possible GOAT candidates. Besides, WTF being played anually does not necessarily lower its...

Re: Murray to Nole, Nole to Rafa, Rafa to Roger: Which happens first?

If Federer could, why couldn't Nadal? After 2007, Fed lost some speed and consistency, while Nadal, Murray and Djokovic all upped their games. But Fed still managed another 5. Now, Nadal may be...

Re: Murray to Nole, Nole to Rafa, Rafa to Roger: Which happens first?

I would not count it out at all. Of course Novak almost beat him, but he is about the same age. Apart from that, who would be close during the next 2-3 years? Of course Nadal could decline seriously,...

Re: Top 35 records/achievements of the Open Era (My list)

Top achievement isn't necessarily the one which is hardest to break. For me the top achievement (which I would rather have as a player) would be Federer's 17 majors and Laver's 2 Grand Slams. But the...

Re: The ATP should just use the Rankings Race

Utterly stupid idea. If anything should be removed it's the race.

Re: Has Murray eclipsed Hewitt yet?

Not close - Hewitt's reaching #1, and staying there for quite some time too, gives him the clear edge. 1 more Major for Muzza would make it closer obviously and 2 more edge it in his favour (or of...

Re: Murray to Nole, Nole to Rafa, Rafa to Roger: Which happens first?

Nadal most likely for me, his reign of RG is unreal and clay competition every bit as bad as a few years ago, even though it was hard to believe that it could continue like that. 4 RG and another...

Re: Andy Murray-the first Brit to win Wimbledon in 77 years, beating Djokovic 6-4 7-5

Finally got some time to watch the final. Not very impressive play, but good result for the sport, and I am really happy for Murray. This made up for the early Nadal and Federer losses (funny results...

Re: WWW ? Wimbledon F : Djokovic-Murray

I think Murray could get close this time but the curse of the Brits will be too much for him. Djokovic can handle anti crowds too. Novak in 5 or possibly 4.

You are better than someone if you have won more, it shouldn't be that hard to understand.

Re: ~~ GOAT discussions ~~ Vol. 2

You have never been reasonable about this, but wth, let's make it another round.

In 2006, Fed's peak year, he earned 3700 points in Slams (3W+1F). At the year end ranking he was 3900 points ahead...

Re: ~~ GOAT discussions ~~ Vol. 2

Counting from Nadal's first Slam title, Fed's and Rafa's resumes:

Fed 13 slam wins (of those 11 with Rafa contending) and ca 180 weeks at #1. On top of that 7 slam finals and 4 YEC.
Nadal 12 slam...

Re: Which Open Era slam win streak was most impressive?

How anyone could pick Nadal's before Fed's because "Fed played in weak era" is incredibly stupid. Not only because both streaks were in the same era; also the competition on clay was worse than on...

Re: US Open QF: Berdych def. Federer 7-6(1) 6-4 3-6 6-3

Great match by Tomas, though not difficult to see this one coming beforehand. He really enjoys playing the old Fed, while you cannot say the opposite. I guess his compact swings make the difference...

Re: How impressive is Nadal's 50-29 record vs. rest of top 4?

Impressive, albeit a somewhat skewed stat. Unskewing would yield 20 matches of the 79 on clay, say Nadal wins 17 of them. Then 59 on non-clay, Nadal wins 28 of them; h2h 45-34, still very good.

Re: Can Nadal chase down Sampras?

Of course he can, in fact I think he will. Whether I will consider him as great a player as Sampras remains to be seen. For me, he needs a lot more weeks at #1, a couple non-RGs and preferably a...

Re: Federer: H2H record vs. Nadal not important

There are, as some already mentioned, other cases where greats are dominated h2h-wise but have a better resume in other aspects. Edberg-Becker is the most important one I think. Equal number of...

Re: Wimbledon SF: Federer beats Djokovic 6-3 3-6 6-4 6-3

Which part of my post did you not understand? I dealt with this already.
