  1. He's close to the GOAT in all sports currently, surely? Him vs the likes of Ronaldo/Messi and others makes for an interesting convo.

    Good win for Federer today vs Nick. World number 1 at 37. GOAT! He was finishing entire service games quicker than the time Nadal and Djokovic take between serves.

    Hope Djokovic gets roasted by Dimitrov in the second round of Queens.

    Sad that Gunneswaran lost. I was hoping he would get to Federer!

    Oh I just meant the main draw of Stuttgart wrt Gunneswaran. I don't think he'll do much given his age as you rightly mention. It just feels good to see the Indian flag next to a name in a main ATP draw for once!!!

    I am pretty ambivalent wrt grass masters now tbh; if it had happened 12 years ago, Federer would have likely had the masters record as well. I agree with you in that Halle should get it over Queens...London shouldn't have a slam, YEC and a masters, but the last line of your post is why it'll probably get the nod...older and more prestigious. I don't think YEC will be a permanent feature in London though. Yes, saw the Gunneswaran result. He needs to beat Pella now to face Federer. Would be nice to have an Indian face in singles for once!

    No, I don't think Halle will get the nod ahead of Queens. I am skeptical about them having a grass masters anytime soon, but if it does happen it is likely to be Queens with it being in the UK and all that.

    Are you sure this is correct? From what I read he needs to reach the final. He is approx 100 points behind Nadal and Stuttgart is a 250. Definitely not. He wants that slam record. He's defending champion at AO. There's no way he will retire aside from a debilitating injury or something of that sort.
  9. Could a mod sticky this please till the end of Wimbledon? Grass season is on us again. Federer is scheduled to play Stuttgart starting from tomorrow. Novak has taken a Wild Card to Queens - a really stacked field. Nadal isn't playing Queens from what I read. Should be an interesting season with the GOAT debate and slam race heating up. Can Federer get the slam difference back to 4? Or will Nadal do the unthinkable and snatch a 3rd crown at SW19 after 8 years, reducing the gap to 2? Will it be Novak with a resurgence? Or can one of the younger players finally step up? Zverev? Thiem? Nick? Shapovalov?

    Federer absolutely outplayed him in that last set. He was blasting winners all over the place. If you want to talk about chokes, let's talk about AO 2009, AO 2005, Wimbledon 2011, USO 2011, Wimbledon 2008, Wimbledon 2014, etc. If Federer hadn't been stubborn about not changing his old racket and switched earlier, he'd be well ahead in the slam count by now. Of course if the time violation rules were properly enforced, then Rafa would have been left in the dust ages ago; and Novak would be somewhere between Murray and Andre.

    Federer needs the difference to stay at 3 AFTER the FO next year. He will be 34 in FO 2020 and no matter how great he is, he will not keep winning RG. Even this year the cracks were visible, if there hadn't been a rain delay, Schwartzman may have been 2-0 sets up; Del Potro and Thiem both had chances to take the first set in their matches. The difference was 3 when Nadal won his first (Federer had 4 slams when Rafa won his first) and Rafa has not made a dent to that number. The spanner in the works is it took peak Djokovic to stop a 33-34 year old Federer from winning 2-3 slams in 2014-2015/AO 16 whereas there doesn't seem to be anyone close to that level yet to stop Nadal yet. I feel the next 3 slams are very crucial. Assuming Rafa is a lock for FO 2019, Fed absolutely has to win at least 1 of Wimbledon 18, USO 18 or AO 19. If he doesn't win any of the 3, he has to hope Rafa has a slamless year as well until next Wimbledon...If Fed takes one of Wimbledon/USO this year and Rafa does nothing, then should be safe.

    Once again Nadal is being allowed to take a ridiculous amount of time between serves. This is pathetic. He is averaging more than 31 seconds between points, going up to even 45 on BPs. Disgusting, absolute shambles.

    Djokovic lucked out big time at AO 2013 where predictably he benefited from (and he actually pointed at the wrong mark to induce that decision, disgusting cheater) a bad line call in the last set which would have given Stan the chance to serve for the match and FO 2016 when he should have been disqualified for throwing his racquet which nearly hit a linesman who had to jump out of the way. That's not to mention how he has been getting away with the ridiculous time wasting and deliberate extra loud grunts and ball bouncing on break points...he's won at least 3-4 slams beyond his potential; pathetic cheating pusher. I relish him getting destroyed by mugs whose names hardly any tennis fans even know. Karma for him.

    That's only for the qualifiers..correct me on this if I am wrong....Nadal will not allow his time violation cheating to be punished before he retires.

    He would have lost a lot more if he wasn't allowed 35-45 seconds between points. It is ridiculous how he gets away with time wasting even now and to a lesser extent, Djokovic. These grinders have been allowed to abuse the time rule for too long. In no other sport would such nonsense be tolerated.
