Re: Should Rafael Nadal retire now to protect his legacy?

I still wouldn't write him off. I saw moments of past greatness from him yesterday. When coming back from 0-4 to 4-4 in the first set he looked very strong. Djokovic soon got the match under control...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 15

So after FIVE breaks of serve in the first set, both are now holding with ease. Might be a sign that the 1st set took its toll and then are now taking it a bit easy in their return games until the...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 15

Easy. Rafa is more fit, but he is also doing a LOT more running than Djokovic, which means that overall I would favour Djokovic slightly in a marathon match. Except, this is RG, in which case I...

Re: Rank the QFists from the one you want to win the most to the least

1. Federer (my alltime fave player)
2. Ferrer (would be a really cool crowning achievement for this hard worker of the sport)
3. Nishikori (the game needs a new generation to rise to the occasion)

Re: RG R4: [2] Federer def. [13] Monfils 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-1

Serious clowning by Monfils in that 4th set.

Re: Jack Sock's sexy FH in endless loop.

Actually, that forehand is quite Courier-esque.

Re: Most difficult shot in tennis?


For the life of me I still can't play a proper backhand smash. If I do pull one off, it is more luck than anything else. Jumping backhand is not difficult (I play 2-handed) and a drive volley...

Re: WWW Roland Garros R4: [13] Monfils vs [2] Federer

The Cuevas match really wasn't that long. A bit over 3 hours or so. Not a marathon by any stretch. Monfils should be fine for the Federer match and will probably win it in 4.

Damn Cuevas, choking the match away. Federer is gonna be pissed.

Re: If Nadal wins FO 2015, has there been a more impressive GS victory?

I really wouldn't be a big deal. Nadal is still second favourite to win RG. Outside of the most delusional Rafa-haters, noone would be particularly surprised if he won it. Bet against him at your own...

Re: Can Federer beat current Nadal on clay?

No way. Nadal goes into robot mode whenever he sees Federer on the other side of the court. The game plan is ridiculously simple but just works. Huge loopy topspin shots to the Federer backhand until...

Re: Will Federer & Nadal ever meet again?

Of course.

I'm sure they will play a ton a "legends" matches for huge bucks after they both retire.

Re: Fed/Nadal at Rome 2006

I don't think anyone is claiming that Federer is better than Djokovic on clay these days, but he certainly was for a very long time. Without Nadal, Federer would have been the big favourite to win RG...

Re: Fed/Nadal at Rome 2006

I still feel like that match was a bit of a turning point. Sure, Federer was struggling with Nadal from the very beginning of their "rivalry" in 2004, but after that Rome match it was like Nadal...

Re: Brad Gilbert says it will be a joke if RG doesn't put Nadal as minimum No. 2 seed

Doesn't really matter all that much. If Rafa rediscovers his clay peak, he would win RG, even if he had to go through qualifying. If he gets back to a decent consistent level, he is beating everybody...

Re: Which 1 GS winner surprised you the most?

This. Winning for the first time at such an advanced age against a player that he had never beaten in loads of tries.

At least Cilic has the type of game that can overwhelm you if he hits his...

Re: WWW Monte Carlo R2: Rafael Nadal- Lucas Pouille

I'd say that if Nadal gets off to a good start, he has a real shot at winning this match.

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

This clay season is gonna be very interesting. Can Nadal win Monte Carlo as usual and regain his mojo? Even going into the clay season playing badly, Nadal is still very hard to beat on the dirt. If...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

I think he is too reliant on his amazing physique to stay at #1 for 3+ years from now on. But I wouldn't rule it out due to the lack of obvious contenders younger than him (which is crazy given how...

Re: Does Raonic's victory over Nadal prove that Sampras would have given him trouble?

To those that say that Sampras would CRUSH Nadal on fast surfaces, have you all forgotten how Sampras approached his matches? Sampras didn't CRUSH his opponents - at least not scorewise. He simply...

Re: Play to win 2 points vs Nadal for 1 billion Or take 300k.

I'd play. There is absolutely no way that going for broke on everything wouldn't win me at least 2 points in what is 100% certain to be a 0-6 0-6 loss in about 20 minutes.

Re: Simon: 'If you ask my coach who has the most talent, Roger or Novak, he'll hesita

Great interview.

He misses one key aspect of "talent" though, and it is whether things come easy to you or you have to work hard for it.

For all of Federers finesse, grace and mastery of every shot...
