Default Re: Unpopular Opinions

Sampras > Federer
Sampras > Nadal

Reason being: He was head & shoulders above the rest of the competition in his era. You can't compare Slam counts because he played in an era of specialists who could clown the best all-around players at Roland Garros. However, he and he alone dominated in an era that naturally featured a lot more variety than the current semi-homogenized courts. Can't put Nadal and Federer ahead if it isn't even clear which one of the two is the best in his own era.

That said, unpopular opinion number two...

I actually prefer the semi-homogenized courts. The best overall players should be favored over one-dimensional specialists, not the other way around. It used to be that Pete Sampras would get clowned at ever single FO, while the super-slow clay was overrun by a bunch of specialists. Props to Guga, Agassi, Wilander and Lendl for saving tennis, but the best player in the world for six years barely had a chance. This way is much better. There's still some difference in the courts, otherwise Nadal would have like 30 Slams.

Juan Martin Del Potro belongs in the ITF Hall of Fame. If you don't put him in, then who do you induct from this era? The Big Four, and maybe the Bryans? Again, this comes back to the dominance of the big guys post-2005, thereby there are fewer and fewer players who breakthrough to get one single Slam. So he belongs (unless the ITF decides to unilaterally stiffen their criteria).

Sharapova has a very bland face, in 20 years she'll look like Navratilova.

Default Re: Unpopular Opinions

Nadal being GOAT, Federer profiting from the weak era and Federer being in his prime in 08-09 and the beginning of 2010 are probably three of the most unpopular opinions on here.

- There are only 8 players in the world better than Janko Tipsarevic (most think he should be out of top 10).
- Radwanska is hot.



That's not an unpopular opinion. That's a fact.
Ahahahahahahahahahaha.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

I have no problems with coaching, never could understand this rule. Seriously, how can you coach someone from the stands? And what harm does it make? I would even allow coaches on court as in DC matches. And all the other sports.

I think that's everyone's opinion. With one correction-- the vast majority of sportsmen are doped in some form, not just for physical endurance but for mental concentration as well.

I also think time has become faster over the past 20 years. That's why one second is shorter and time between the serves should be longer at least by 33%.
