Re: Kei Nishikori : "I'm not comfortable (being World No. 5)"

pretty sure he means that regardless of her high rank, she gets to the later rounds in slams but plays poorly and hasn't capitalized on any opportunity to win a slam or to gain #1 yet.

Re: Kei Nishikori : "I'm not comfortable (being World No. 5)"

cilic was playing really well that USO, both federer and tired kei really had no chance against him. but of course he's returned to his usual inconsistent form so that's why people think it's a fluke...

Re: Bagels received by the big 4

As much as some people like to bash fed or fedfans, and even if people don't agree he's the best ever, there's really no contest that Federer is the most consistent player ever. He was bageled a...

Re: why isn't nadal able to win off clay?

his game is anchored on defense based around his unyielding stamina, which is very taxing on the body and knees so it is much more effective on clay than off of it. he was able to win everywhere when...

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

see, the thing is, so many of his matches against the top 4 are played on clay because the rest of the top 4 (barring perhaps murray) can consistently get to the SF and F of clay events, whereas...

Re: Who can stop "Novak Slam"?

djokovic better win RG, it will be a slap in the face to nadulltards who claim H2H or record in slam finals as reason why federer isn't GOAT.

Re: Fed/Rafa/Djoker: how often they've faced the top 5

Re: Djokovic is closer to Federer or Nadal?

this. not sure why OP asked this question, because djokovic's style really isn't that close to either of their styles. but obviously, if an answer must be forced, then it would be nadal.

Re: By the time of 2020, all aspects concerned the strongest tennis-base region?

his game is a very physically demanding one. not only in the sense of stamina, but also in terms of timing and footwork. he already has a lot of mileage and is much older in tennis terms than...
