    The way this guy has reinvented himself in his mid-30s and evolved his game to start winning Slams again is so damn impressive.

    I was reading he only lost 35 games in the French open this year. Second best all time in a grand slam behind Bjorn Borg losing 32 in 1978 at the French open. Insane to think Rafa looked more likely to retire than ever win another major just last year.

    That was in Kuwait, right? Crazy that something like that can happen. - - - Updated - - - National anthems are a lingering remnant of the ultra-nationalism in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Patriotism and nationalism are convenient excuses for all manner of disgusting opinions and...

    Federer dominated the weakest era of men's tennis ever, until Nadal came up and absolutely destroyed him... Djoko has had it much easier with Nadal falling off a cliff with his body quitting on him the last couple years, and Fed being an old man. Probably the toughest competition period of...

    The quality of the men's game has really fallen off the map again with Nadal becoming a ghost, and Fed being in his mid-30s now.
