  1. Is the USO Final 3rd set the best set in tennis history (pure level)?

    General Messages
    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...

  5. Olympic tennis tournament importance

    General Messages
    Many tennis players don't care about Olympics (even if Massù, Rossett, Nadal and Murray did). For instance Thiem will skip Tokyo 2020 cuz he thinks Kitzbuhel ATP 250 is more important. In your opinioni, the Olympic tennis tournament is: A) as importanti as ATP 1000 B) as important as ATP 500...
  6. Nadal playing on Suzanne Lenglen?

    General Messages
    I think we're far enough away from Roland Garros for me to ask this with a degree of impunity: we keep being told how different courts Philippe Chatrier and Suzanne Lenglen are (am I right in thinking that they are virtually at opposite ends of the complex?), and how Chatrier appears to play to...
  7. The all-important 2020 French Open

    General Messages
    The stakes are incredible, bigger than for any other slam that I can remember. Given that Nadal,, Djokovic, and Federer are not getting younger, arguably this tournament is going to decide the slam race. Nadal is, as usual, the favorite at the French Open. If he wins he'll tie Federer at 20...

  11. Tennis Myth Busters Series - Post 2 - H2H skew

    General Messages
    This time we talk H2H skew :) People often talk about how H2H can be skewed because players played a lot on one player's favorite surface or because some player performs in H2H matches better on bigger occasions. Most notable example is Federer vs Nadal H2H. It is often believed that Federer...
  12. Serious question: Would Nadal have retired if he had won the first set?

    General Messages
    As the title says, do you think Rafael Nadal would have retired in the semi-final of the US Open 2018 against Juan Martin Del Potro if he had won the highly competitive first set. In this set, Rafael Nadal played at an incredibly high level. Breaking right back after the opening game, and then...
  13. Nadal is the favorite for the US Open

    General Messages
    Let's admit it. Everyone can say that Novak, Federer or any other player is a better in hard court than Nadal, but in this moment, I don't see anyone who can beat Nadal at Bo5. Maybe next week in Cincinnati or in the US Open things can change, but now, two weeks before US Open begins, Nadal is...
  14. Nadal to beat Federer and Connors in Top-10 Consecutive Weeks?

    General Messages
    Nadal has been holding a top-10 rank for 687 weeks and currently he is the only one who has still maintained a top-10 rank since 2005. After the sweep of the clay season this year, he is guaranteed to be ranked top-10 until next year's clay season. That means, he will definitely cross Federer's...
  15. Nadal 2018 vs Djokovic back in form??

    General Messages
    Guys, what do you think the results would be if Djokovic were to get back to his 2015/2016 form? With Nadal improved backhand and aggression do you think Nadal will have a better results playing against Djokovic today as compared to earlier?
  16. Djokovic would beat Nadal on Clay... Today.

    General Messages
    I truly believe that like most greats, the best in Djokovic is brought out in him by facing the best. If he were to play Nadal, the old shirt-ripping, line painting, grunting, not giving a **** tennis legend would reappear for the chance of announcing his return. When the greats play, ego is...

  19. who will have the better 2017 season, Federer or Nadal?

    General Messages
    some years ago jokes were made here about that scenario, but who would have thought that the question could seriously be relevant in the year 2017 ? :eek: Federer is half a decade older, which is virtually massive, but: - defacto he has had better Slam performances in recent years than...
