The 2019 USO is ATP Commentary

I saw a thread on Twitter recently that projected and simultaneously asked for responses on the final tally of career Majors for the Big 3. The tweet along with the several responses were all in the same ball park with various iterations: Novak finishing with 24, Nadal 22 and Federer 20; or Nadal 23, Djokovic …

Hey, ATP: Put Your Clothes On!

I said two things yesterday in my short fairly lightweight post that ring too true. What if you’re a betting man and you like the looks of the Kyrgios v Khachanov match later today? How do you lean there? Does the Aussie even show-up? Looks like a clash of titans on one hand. Does that …

Well, let's just agree to disagree on that one. 😀 Thanks again to Wilfried for his article on top players' connections …

ATP Youth On the Rise

The complicated discussion of the ATP youth took a more positive spin last week (for which I will provide a more positive spin), which naturally follows from play earlier in the year and is actually part of a basic cycle of life: the young grow, mature, become stronger and more refined in order to overcome …

Notes on a Wednesday

The grass continues to befuddle a few of our higher ranked players and, in fact, as you know, London this week has become a kind of journeyman's journey. The top three seeds are vanquished at Ageon Championships with Murray getting beat in straights by lucky loser Thompson from Australia, Raonic getting over powered by Aussie …
