    Hey everyone! Excited to be here, and talk tennis. Fun fact: if you've ever heard of the term NEO Backhand, that actually stemmed from a highlights video I made about Federer's backhand at the AO 2017! Can't quite believe people have been using it in discussion, haha!

    New MTF member, love reading what you guys have to say. Here's a poll about a question I was discussing with a friend a couple days ago: after RG2020, which Grand Slam would contribute the most to Nadal's legacy? A strong case can be made for each of the four. AO: Career double Slam, hasn't...

    Well, Federer being the guy with more Grand Slam titles or weeks at #1 than anyone else seems a highly unlikely outcome of the Big 3 era. Most Australian Open titles, most hard court Major titles, most seasons at #1, most Masters 1000 titles don't look possible as well. A bit of a chance to...

    Roger Federer gave Marat Safin a dose of his own medicine Sunday, destroying the powerful Russian 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 to win the Hamburg Masters. Safin, so often the perpetrator of one-sided thrashings, was left shell-shocked by the Swiss 11th seed’s superior strength on the Rothenbaum centre court...

    As a tennis fan for over 50 years I have had the privilege to watch some truly great players of our sport. There have always been big rivalries. But nothing compares to what we are seeing with the big three. Never before have three players matched each other so evenly in terms of skill...

    Federer is arguably the most talented player to ever grace a tennis court, but i guess he's a little bit overrated. As a matter of fact, he could (should!) have won many more tournaments (Slam finals in particular), but he has had a tendency to choke under pressure. Even if i am a Roger fan...

    What a viewpoint. Wow. Seeing it at this level makes one appreciate almost each aspect of the game even more, from the conditions, to the quality of serve and return, to movement, to half volleys, you name it. Even the gasps, oohs and ahhs from the fans. And no annoying commentators...

    With his old racquet, the drop shots were a lot more frequent... at least that's my feeling. It was so smooth and more often than not impossible for the opponent to reach. But I'd still argue his drop shot is the best one out there.
