Two main ones are my go-to in a pinch but for the rest I rotate through a list.

Fognini just came back to beat Nadal from 2 sets down!! This was probably the best match I've seen all year. I'm also drunk and plan on staying that way through the Katz game

Are we seeing the tending down of Rafa, kinda like the trending down of Feds started in 2011.
Rafa wasn't himself on Clay this year.  In the last 5 years (15 Aussie/Wimbledon/US slams), Rafa has missed 3 due to injury, he has failed to make Semis in 8 of those 12, and has same number of titles as Feds (1).

He may get healthy again and be the man to beat on clay. Outside of the French, you have to wonder if Feds Murray or Wawrinka are all more likely to win a Slam in 2016-2017

At the same time.... I think Djoker may just be the man to beat for some time.  As a huge Feds fan, I honestly won't be shocked if Novak is gunning for #16.17,18 by the end of 2019

This pro Federer crowd against John Isner during a night session on Labor Day of the US Open is incredibly disappointing.

agreed.  but not as disappointing as Isner being the lone remaining American in the quarters of the US Open.

American women, on the other hand...

Considering the current state of American men's tennis I thought they collectively did quite well.

Djoker has now won 4 straight Majors, being the current champ of the Australian French Wimbledon and USOpen.  He has 12 titles, Feds 17, Rafa 14

1) Feds most successful stretch was winning 12 of 19 majors he played in. Won 16 of 27 if you stretch it out just a bit longer
Djoker has won 11 of the last 22 majors he has competed in
Rafa won 13 of 30 majors he competed in during his best stretch

2)Feds made finals in 18 of 19 Majors once, and 22 of 27
Djoker has now made 17 of last 22 finals
Rafa made 19 of 30 finals at one point

3) Feds made quarters in 36 straight majors. He made 23 straight Semis
Djoker has now made 28 straight Qtrs. Has made 23 of last 24 Semis
Rafa made Qtrs in 22 of 24 he once played

Just awesome tennis we have witnessed the past 13 years from 3 of the top 5 players in tennis history

I would have guessed that Nadal's best run was better than that, in my memory his reign was as dominant as Tiger's but not quite as long.

Nadal v. Joker - 23-26 - Novak Djokovic and Nadal have met 49 times (more than any other pair in the Open Era)
Nadal v. Fed - 23-11  :surprised:

A year ago I would have said that Federer is GOAT but that's before I knew his record against Nadal and before Djokovic became a total monster.

I never know what to think about the disproportionality of Nadal's Grand Slams. 9 are the French Open. Is it even possible to compare Grand Slam titles? On the other hand, 7 of Federer's are Wimbledon and 6 of Djoker's are Australian.

Maybe Djoker's Slam wins should impress us more since they've come on the surface where you see the broadest range of players. Roger still has 9 hard court wins to his 8, but that'll change.

The disproportionality doesn't bother me so much. I think because I watched Sampras suck at the French I grew up thinking that anyone who wins even one on their weakest surface deserves eternal respect.


...and now I have to watch videos of Bjorn Borg to figure out how he won 5 at Wimbledon and 6 at RG and never on a hard court.

Nadal's disproportionate amount of clay court wins is the only fluke in that bunch; he could only beat the best of his era on one surface that is played on a very limited basis.

Sampras never won a French and dominated Wimbledon (7) and the US (5).  Agassi only has 8 Grand Slam titles, but all of them.  I liked watching Agassi more because he was much more unpredictable and had more facets to his game.  Sampras was probably the pinnacle of serve/volley and was actually what I tried to play like.

There was some kind of audio noise during a rally in the fourth set that if he would have won that point he would have won the game, it was 40-30 at the time. The chair umpire called a let and replayed the point, he was not in command of the rally at the time, they were just trading on the baseline. He threw a little fit, lost the replayed point, ended up losing the match and he whined about the let call thorough the rest of the match. The ugly crybaby got exactly what he deserved.

Here's good video of what happened

He then proceeded to whine, slam his racket, break the Mercedes logos at the nets, and just be a shithead the rest of the match. He got booed.

I saw this funny looking dude beat Djoker in the first set on a tiebreak before I went to bed last night. I guess he ended up winning the match.

ISTOMIN! I saw him at the US Open in 2009, that match on a side court was one of the coolest things I've ever seen, I'm sure I've mentioned it in here before.
