As great as Nadal is, he doesn't seem to have a plan b. Roger is able to adapt his play to combat his opponents strategies better than anybody else, ever.

Also, I don't enjoy woman's tennis, but well done Jo.

That's a bit harsh.

Nadal got destroyed by Djokovic in 2011 and 2012. He came back in 2013 and beat Djokovic like 6 times in a row that year. He had a hold over Djokovic before 2011.

He also has had a hold on Federer for 11 years. So you can't really say Federer has been the best to adapt to his opponents strategy. As it's taken him 11 years to adapt to Nadal. Nadal targeted his backhand for 11 years and he didn't adapt. Give Nadal a few months and I'm sure he'd probably beat Federer. Shame Federer is skipping the entire clay season besides french. Would have been interesting to see him against Nadal on the clay.

Yeah but Federer has done it without the drugs.

This year was Murray's chance to really push on, but it looks like he's just going backwards.

So it turns out that Serena won the Aus Open whilst pregnant. What a machine!

Technically that is cheating as it was two people playing against singles. :x

Someone told me yesterday that during an American tennis match that was going out on some obscure channel, a couple were audibly having sex in an apartment across the street or something and they had to stop the game. Is this true? How is this video not in the thread?!

So much for his domination.

He still has a lot to play for this year. But he really needs to improve his overall game especially the serve.
