    Poll: Re: Great strokes. Forehand, ATP.

    As I said. There are too many good forehands. Delpo and Gonzo and Marat indeed. I left our Roddick's, even though he had a sledgehammer too. How about Jimmy Arias? For a moment there, his forehand...

    Poll: Great strokes. Forehand, ATP.

    Now we come to perhaps the most difficult stroke to judge. The number of great forehands on the tour, through the ages, is enormous. It has been the bread and butter stroke for so many pros and,...

    Re: The Run to the WH

    Allow me.
    In 2016, Tiny was going against A WOMAN. A hysterical, manipulative, scheming, cheating woman.
    In 2020, he is going against ANOTHER WHITE OLD MAN. A reasonable, reliable, honest white...

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. 2nd SERVE, WTA

    Touche. And I was a fan of hers. Indeed, I would replace her in my list with Madison. But I really racked my brain for players with good second serves and was a blank. It was hard to figure who...

    Any company that would have dealt with any crisis remotely resembling COVID in the way that this administration has dealt with it would be facing criminal charges. At a minimum.

    Poll: Great strokes. 2nd SERVE, WTA

    It is difficult to find players with good second serves in the WTA. At least one entire generation neglected the shot, to the point that the server was on the defensive from the start. Therefore, I...

    Re: covid-19 Virus Updates and Discussion

    That would mean 12,000,000 new cases (for four months, approx). Plus the known 2.6 million, it means 15MM (+/-). At 2% death rate, 300K dead. But that is only 4.5% of the USA's population (the 15MM)....

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. 2nd SERVE, ATP.

    Kyrgios will not make any of my lists simply because he is still too young and we don't know what he will accomplish. But your comment is spot on. Of all the shots out there, from the new generation,...

    Poll: Great strokes. 2nd SERVE, ATP.

    Isner. Very little to add in comments. It is huge.
    Karlovic. As mentioned before, he holds the record for a second serve speed. Makes the cut.
    Sampras: basically, a first serve hit with different...

    Yes. But in the end, Tiny is manipulable, gullible and can be bought outright. He offers a high degree of unpredictability, which is the risk. But he can be controlled through different channels....

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. FIRST SERVE, ATP.

    I debated about putting Karlovic in, and in the end decided not to simply because he is the least accomplished of the list I made. And mind you, I admire Ivo. I understand that at times he may seem...

    I think that Mr Barnwell was being sarcastic. The deal is pretty stingy for Cam (Richard Sherman is calling it out). So indeed, the worst thing that can happen to the Pats is that they cut Cam before...
