Miami QF Part II

Chung v Isner went 1:08. John played a perfect match, served massive. Chung's serve is not his strength; playing a serve like Isner makes that even more of a problem. John loves Miami. He loves the high bounce of the court, the overall speed and conditions. Isner has made three Masters finals in his career, …

Miami Second Week

Two quick observations before I get into this write-up: Streaming tennis on the web has several benefits, one of which involves the viewer not having to listen to TV commentary (of course we can always mute our devices). Granted, I like me some Jim Courier or Annacone or a few of the boys from Sky …

Fed Says Goodbye to Miami Foreverer

Well, that's my theory at least. We have to expect that he'll begin to play less and less if he actually intends to play another year or two. Remember the context of this 2018 Federer, some of which was provided by this blog. HRFRT was written when Federer had 17 majors, along with the rest …

If you’re caught-up in the Fedal rivalry, you’re probably a bit confused. If you need any clarity on that, search …

We'll be following the match live here if you want to comment on the blog or follow the action on Twitter. My Twitter feed is on the left-side of the blog and here's a link as well. Does Federer have enough left in the tank to go three sets with Nadal? Several signs point to …

Miami Final, Fedal and 2017 Federer

That's a lot of Fs, if you know what I mean. We have another Fedal final, this time in a Masters tournament, so the past keeps coming back to haunt the tennis world in a worst-nightmare kind of way (if you fail to see the historic brilliance). First, obviously, we got the AO Final that …
