    Not sure if we had a thread about this, but let's talk about the absolute peak level of tennis displayed by the members of the big 3. When did you think they reached their absolute peak? The poll is included. PS You might want to break it down into several categories such as physicality...

    It’s not often discussed, but did you know that Federer has been able to defeat Djokovic in the finals of no fewer than TWO different events above the ATP 500 level? US Open (2007) Cincinnati (2009, 2012, 2015) Moreover, in Cincy, Federer has beaten Djokovic in the final after Djokovic became...

    12+ has been done 14 times in the Open Era, including 12 times by a member of the Big Three (Federer 6, Nadal 4, Djokovic 2). I think Federer’s 16 SFs at the Tour Finals, one of the strongest tournaments, is an underrated record. So far only Federer has 15+ SFs at a single event, which he did...

    End of 2021: Federer will have 3765-1380=2385 year-end points, Nadal will have 5815-940=4875 year-end points. Right now that would be 17th and 8th, but current points are inflated and this inflation will be reduced towards the end of the year as other players’ potentially duplicated points are...

    I made a small video on "Most Aces in Tennis". Before you see the video actually, you can actually guess who it would be.

    In 2021, which Djokovic equaling Federer's 20 Slams but surpassing his #1 weeks I came to realise something i've never bother to think before. Were we all fooled? Maybe Federer was never actually the GOAT of tennis, but we've rushed into this belief along with the present Zeitgeist. I explain...

    Surprised there is no thread about this match. It would be a routine match for Federer most of the time… but you never know with the actual Federer, still Federer in 3 tight sets.

    It's only been in recent weeks that I've realised the potential historic significance of this match in the annals of tennis. Will it turn out to have been something of a "Sliding Doors" moment for the sport? ("Sliding Doors" being the film in which a woman's life goes two different ways...

    Novak’s performance in the second week of the French Open was, in a word, gritty. It’s a theme we have seen him play in many grand slam performances over the last decade or so. From 0-5 down in the first set against Nadal, Novak kept on coming up with the goods when it mattered most. The final...

    Federer took a while before he did press after his loss in Halle today. Didn't hint at an injury, but said he will talk to the team on where to go next once he gets back to Switzerland. Said he wasn't happy with his attitude in the third set but at the same time gave praise to Auger Aliassime.

    I found his statement quite funny since I recall him judging the GOAT by the amount of grand slams won. His exact quote : "It seems it's all about Grand Slam titles nowadays and I don't like that," from the article...

    WB SF 2018 between Rafa and Djoko was a huge match that marked the beginning of Djokovic's resurgence after a bad period during which he won no slams. Was one of the best matches I've ever seen and pretty underestimated. Rafa had a chance to take that one but got tight in the 3rd set TB and it...

    Peak Wawrinka is some of the best tennis you will ever see. And the level is rightly praised, with many saying that Wawrinka's best level is at the same level of the Big 3 - few can really argue. We all know that peak Wawrinka rarely shows up, but once he does, he usually ends up winning the...

    Judging by Fed's comments before his first match with hawkeye, he wasn't super pleased by the new technology... I wonder what he thinks of hawkeye live where there are no line judges. Also, people often talk about Federer being poor at challenges. I've heard that a lot of times but never seen...

    Forehand Theory: Developing a Virtuous Swing Path Nextgen forehands that flex the wrist have ceiling effects for players IMHO. My article outlines 3 keys for a shot to have greatness: 1) gravity 2) grip 3) wrist laid back, or , 'wrinkles in the back of your hand' Doing so allows you to...
