Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about surface speeds, clay courts and the rise of one-dimensional players. This was set off by remarks made by Roger Federer at different interviews. The current conditions and surfaces obviously favor Federer. He has won 16 Grand Slam titles within the ridiculously short period of six-and-a-half years. Just imagine if two of the surfaces had been clay....

The Season is almost over, coming to an end at the Year Ending Championships at London. The draw has been seen, analyzed and bookies have quoted the odds. But no one really can predict with any measure of confidence who will emerge as the winner. The Fall season is  the silly season of tennis. After the US Open, most of the top tennis players are, as one writer put it, the  ” walking... 

Roger Federer, His Hubris, the Gods, Rafael Nadal and Nemesis

Roger Federer‘s utter domination of the tennis courts at one time, the hyperbole employed by the media and his own need to believe in a larger than life self-image, are now part of tennis history.

commentNo Comments

Roger Federer’s “sore loser” remarks, as well as his left-handed compliments to Nadal describing him as a great clay courter, have been well-documented and decried. Now, we have his latest innuendos about slowing down of surfaces. Before the US Open, Federer remarked that the fast courts at Flushing Meadows might prove to be a challenge for Rafa. He hinted that the courts... 

Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal: What Does The H2H Mean to Their Legacy?

Published: October 13, 2010

Roger Federer has accumulated enough titles and honors to be the front-runner for the title of GOAT. But there is this pesky h2h with Nadal which stands as a question mark on his GOAT status. The paradox is this: Roger’s titles entitle him to be considered a favorite for the title of the greatest of all time. But his h2h prevents him being considered as the greatest player of his own era! As...
