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

Nothing surprises me about Federer.

If you told me we will be having this same conversation two years from now, I wouldn't be surprised. (well maybe a bit, but not shocked)

Re: For the long-time tennis watchers: What are your GOAT rankings?

1. Federer. Greatest, most effortless player I've ever seen.
2. Borg. The player that made me a fan, when I was a kid.
3. Nadal. The greatest warrior I've ever seen, in any sport.
4. Djokovic. Has to...

Borg/McEnroe/Connors Down Under

Here's a thought inspired by the recent "If Borg hadn't retired" thread.

They weren't counting Grand Slams in those days.

But the Final count of the Big Three was:
Borg 11
Connors 8
McEnroe 7

Re: WWW IPTL "International Tennis Premier League"

I have enjoyed it very much. Nice to see some tennis at a time which is usually the off season.
My only complaint is that here in Canada, they only show one match a day on TSN2, and for some reason...

Re: Lendl 84-87 and Djokovic 2011-2014. are identical achievement-wise

Very similar, but Djokovic has personality. Lendl had none.

Re: What will your reaction be if Thiem beats Berdych tommorow?

My reaction would be YES!!
Cause Berdych is my least favorite player on the tour.

Re: Аre you satisfed from tennis broadcasting in your country?

I'm so irritated with TSN right now.
I go down to my Shaw office last Monday (first day of the US Open) and ask how I get TSN 3,4,5? I get 1 and 2, but TSN has been promoting that the new channels...

Re: If Bouchard & Raonic win Wimbledon 2014?

This will be great for Tennis Canada, but I'm sorry, as much as I root for Milos to do well, I want #18 for Roger!!

Re: If Novak doesn't win Wimbledon - Should Becker Go?

If he doesn't win this tournament, people are going to wonder about his mental state. He has too much talent to continue to be stuck on 6 slams. Time is ticking away.

Re: Nadal choose between-- Federer winning #18......OR......Djok winning for year-end

I am loving this tournament this year.

Federer is in the semis
Djokovic is in the semis
Raonic is in the semis
and Nadal is OUT!!!


So to answer the question, who cares what Nadal thinks.

Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

I've been to Indian Wells, 4 of the last 5 years.
I've seen Federer play 8 times, six in singles and twice in doubles (including with Stan vs. Rafa/Lopez) and I've never seen him lose.
Go Fed!

Re: 2012: 6 most likely 1st time grand slam finalists

Raonic at Wimbledon. That would be awesome!

Dolgopolov to me seems the most likely of that group.

Re: When will it be possible to once again see Federer as 'just' a good player?

If Joko stays #1 heading into the USO, Fed could be on Rafa's side of the draw, which means, if said spaniard gets knocked out earlier than the semis, and Roger doesn't have to play Rafa (and his own...

I agree Federer's SF streak and current QF streak are quite remarkable, and will be part of his legend.

Re: A shadow over Nadal's legacy?

It's easy to be mentally tough when you are the best, and in your prime. No doubt Federer was mentally tough in 04-07. Just like Nadal was in '08 and last year, Nole is now. He's in his prime,...
