R29 not sure but Tommy was actually a really good junior. Won junior majors. He is a really good mover and if healthy I've always thought if he hit a hot streak he could win a major or get to a couple of finals. He has a really good back hand. And he's very technically sound off both sides. He doesn't really spray all over the place like the other Americans unless he's pressing.

by Anonymousreply 45May 18, 2024 5:55 AM

If Tommy Paul were a little taller, he could be a Top 5 player.* His movement is his best asset but his relative lack of power is what's keeping him from getting to that next level.

Fritz is basically the opposite: has the height, has the power and some big weapons but his movement is total garbage. It always has been, too. If you look at articles about him from when he first went pro, everyone was talking about his terrible movement even then.

Ben Shelton seems to have all of the pieces, just needs to put it together and get some experience.

*Carlitos is only 6' but he's special.

I recall hearing Jim Courier talk during IW or Miami about Tommy taking the sport more seriously in recent years and seeing results because of it. He stopped partying and got serious about his fitness. His coach, Brad Stine, is very good and wouldn't work with Tommy if he wasn't serious. That said, I don't feel like Tommy will ever reach a Slam final. But should have a better career than like, say, Robby Ginepri. Tommy will have a Todd Martin career, which is just fantastic for him.

R144, I think Tiafoe’s greatest weakness is that he doesn’t seem to have a good game plan when he’s out there on the court, and it’s this lack of an overall strategy or specific tactics that often results in him playing the wrong shot at the wrong time.

by Anonymousreply 160May 23, 2024 7:29 PM

Tiafoe is addicted to the big shot, the one that makes the crowd ooh and ahh. Sometimes it works beautifully.

Other times he’d be better served by focusing on routine point construction.

Rafa playing Zverev in the first round is actually good for him. Should he win? He is the fourth seed going forward.

I'd much rather he play Zverev than Carlos or Sinner or Novak. He can beat Zverev if he can must up even one/half of old Rafa.

by Anonymousreply 169May 24, 2024 1:23 AM

Let's be real: Rafa is not ready for RG. If he makes it to the second week, it would be a miracle.

It would be embarrassing for him to lose in the first week to some scrub. If he loses to Zverev, who's playing some of his best tennis right now, there's no shame.

by Anonymousreply 177May 24, 2024 1:50 PM

Interested to see where Perricard ends up in his career (he is only 20). He and Fils won the French Open boys doubles title together and are close in age. Fils got off to a bigger start so far - tournament title, top 30 ranking - while Perricard is just getting into the top 100. I like Fils (and think he's hot), but there's nothing particularly standout about his game . Don't get me wrong - being a top 20-50 player is a huge accomplishment. I'm just wondering if he can go levels above that - Top 15 or 10, win bigger tournaments, make deep slam runs. He's only made a couple of second rounds in his so-far limited appearances at Slams.

Perricard is 6'8" and moves incredibly well for his size. His serve is big, but doesn't strike me as being as big as it could. He's got that flattish one-handed backhand, that I don't think is going to be a strength like Wawrinka's, but can he avoid it being a liability. He mixes it up a lot - works his way to net, serves and volleys sometimes - and that game often takes more time to develop.

I agree, 180, but Isner had quite a trick. One world-class shot allowed him to be a Top 10 player and make some deep Slam runs. Perricard moves much better - so better defense, ability to stay in rallies longer, and might have a broader game, be a more "complete" player. But because his serve isn't as big as Isner's - he hasn't done anything close to what Isner did on tour. BUT - again, he's only 20 so hasn't had many chances yet; Isner didn't really get going until he was 22-24 post-college. I wonder if Perricard will grow more.

If Zverev didn't have the charges and trial hanging over him, everyone would be saying that he's the one to beat. I think he clearly is but what do I know... Sinner and Alcaraz have injuries and haven't been playing, Novak and Rafa are old and finally playing like it. Tsitsy and his dad won't get into the final. Rublev will beat himself up before the semis. I mean, it's Zverev. Should be, anyway.

by Anonymousreply 196May 24, 2024 5:01 PM

It sure as hell had better not be Zverev, the second or third biggest jerk on the tour. Other than Rome, his clay court season was mediocre: a loss to Tsitsipas in the Monte Carlo round of 16, to Garin in the Munich QFs, and to Cerundolo in the Madrid round of 16. We deserve better than him as the French Open champion.

Novak just used Geneva to stay match-fit. He surreptitiously let that match go; a few days rest before RG. I dislike him, but if that was the scenario then I think it a smart one. RG is the prize he wants, to steal Rafa's favorite tournament. Rafa will get massive attention at RG, go out early, and then Novak will turn it in to his own show and beg for attention.

Not even Creatina can save Djokovic from Father Time. Novak has run out of gas. He doesn't have the same intensity, tenacity or endurance any more.

Losing to Sinner at the AO must have really affected Novak mentally. It is difficult to maintain intense emotions of any kind, and tennis has been his #1 priority for 15+ years at this point. His kids are older and more aware of when he's NOT with them because he's off playing tennis, which must be hard for him -- I think he's just lost his competitive edge. How will he get that back? I don't know that he can.

by Anonymousreply 205May 24, 2024 7:53 PM

I think the end is nearing for Djoker, but I still wouldn't count him out. I need him not to win a Slam the rest of the year before I declare him done. He's such a gamer and loves to play possum and even with the AO loss and no wins this year, the other RG contenders are all having issues. He can often summon something for the biggest of occasions.

I won't bother listing the starkly obvious reasons as to why the male tour players are all straight, and in the slightest case where there may be a 'closeted' player, why it would be ridiculous to come out while on tour. I mean how stupid would you have to be to not understand that.

Fils hasn't had a breakout Slam. And by "breakout" I mean merely the second week, so even just 4th round/Round of 16. That seems reasonable with the right draw. But, I guess he should make a 3rd round first, which he hasn't done.

Baez in trouble in the 5th set against some Brazilian Qualifier. I really thought that this might be the first RG since Rafa's emergence where a dark horse clay courter might actually win the damn thing - given the shaky status of all the top players coming into it.

However, it seems like they've all decided to blow themsleves up in the first round!

by Anonymousreply 333May 27, 2024 5:08 PM

I'm not sure R332. No doubt he could play a little better. But, he just does not have the court coverage/defensive skills. If he's ahead in the point and playing offense, he's still elite. But a big part of his game was getting into offensive positions from defensive positions, and that's just not happening consistently. Also, his serve has declined, and a strong serve is one way to get ahead in the point and be on the offensive right away in the point. At times he looks close to his former self, but if I watch closely, the distance back is far.

by Anonymousreply 334May 27, 2024 5:12 PM

Some people say Monfils wasted his talent - in the sense that he could have done more, even if he did have a long, fruitful career. There was a phase of his career when just didn't know (or didn't care) what to consistently do with his game, because he could do it all. Sometimes he'd serve big and hit huge groundstrokes and be a power player. Other times, because he's so mobile, he'd stand way back and retrieve like ASV or Medvedev. Still other times, he'd work his way into net more and try more touch shots. Sometimes he's do a combo of some or all of these things in a single match and change tactics for no apparent reason. I think he liked entertaining and I think he liked seeing what he could do. He played more straightforward and in a more consistent style as he's gotten older. And there may have been more base consistency in terms of game style than I'm giving him credit for - because the sometimes wild swings in tactics and style really stands out.

All that said, he was still very successful - 12 titles; a high ranking of 6. 2 Slam SFs, 8 QFs, 10 4R. Some wins over big players. Longevity - a LONG period in the Top 40 (at least). It's not a HOF level career, but it's a level that the vast majority of players never even get close to. And he's a fun and nice guy. He'll be missed when he goes.

What the hell is wrong with Tennis Channel? The subscription price is over $100 to get their online coverage for replays that start in the middle of matches, streams displaying as ended when the match is halfway over, etc. Do better, Ken Solomon/Sinclair Broadcasting Group.

I will almost always pay for Slam coverage, R388. I have NO problems playing for a month of ESPN+ so I can watch any court I watch for USO, Wimbledon, and AO. I even used to pay for ESPN+ AND a month of Fubo, Sling or Youtube TV when ESPN only aired the semis and finals on regular ESPN and not ESPN+ (they stopped that at this year's AO; hopefully it will be the same for Wimbledon and the USO). Though as far as FUBO, SLING or YouTube TV was concerned, I could usually finagle a discounted monthly rate, a free trial, or something else that made it cheaper. I consider it money well spent - I watch a ton of tennis during the two weeks of Slams.

For this year's French Open, I was all on board to do it again. I paid $5.99 for Peacock streaming, which got me the first two days and will get me the finals, as well as coverage this coming weekend. I was seriously considering paying for a month of Fubo, which has Tennis Channel - but that only gets me the one match they're showing at any time. I also considered TC+ because then I'd have somewhere I could pick which match I wanted to watch but the cost just seems excessive. If it was $9.99, $19.99, even $24.99 for one months of TC+ with access to all matches, I'd probably do it. But the expensive yearly option is the only option and no other Slams are on TC. I may sit this one out (except NBC/Peacock content) and follow scores, look at highlights, etc.

by Anonymousreply 389May 28, 2024 3:22 AM

I'm in the same boat, R389, and will also pay the monthly fee for TennisTV to see most of the ATP matches (though sometimes the matches not televised are those I want to see the most). Tennis Channel's only payment option feels more like a ransom, holding RG hostage. I've paid it begrudgingly only to see coverage that's worse than any of the other streaming services.
