    Must certainly be up there with the best matches he has played, considering how important the match was. Granted, Djokovic was errorprone but a lot of that came from Rafa's defense. Thoughts?

    I have only been here for the last eight months or so, so I have not been through a start of the year predictions before. However, I have been surprised how many people have predicted a great fall off in performance by Djokovic in 2021. Is this the usual bash-the-other-guy cause he is not my...

    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...

    I am not sure about the updated ranking system. But I read on twitter that ATP silently announced that the ranking system would carry over points until March 8, 2021. It means Djokovic should be able to hold on to all the points from Paris Bercy, ATP Cup, Australian Open and Dubai championship...

    I was wondering with Thiem probably winning the US Open since Novak got kicked out and having only reached R1 last year (should then jump from currently 7k points to around 9k points), and the remaining tournaments that probably most players will play the upcoming few months being Rome/Madrid...

    On April 17, 2005, an 18-year-old Rafael Nadal won the first Masters 1000 title in Monte Carlo, beating Guillermo Coria 6-3, 6-1, 0-6, 7-5 in three hours and nine minutes and making the first notable step on his glorious clay-court trail that has made him the most successful player in history on...

    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...

    “It was truly an escape, he was clearly the better player for two sets,” Djokovic said in the post-match interview.

    The tennis that was played in 2011 remains some of the best the world has ever seen. The third set of the US Open final that year showcased that fact more than any other set. Djokovic, at the peak of his powers, facing his nemesis Nadal in prime condition with vengeance in his hitting. Rest...
