Which 8 matches are these? I'm struggling to remember.

Not sure. I was just scrolling through Facebook and in a tennis group I am in, this popped up.
Would be interesting to see, re the others.

Looks like I was right (cough cough) again. 

Federer: 20/1200 macthes (1.66%) or 1 match every 60
Nadal 8/935 matches (0.85%) or 1 match every 117
Djoko 3/850 matches (0.35%) or 1 match every 283!!!! 

I am not surprised retrievers have a much better record at those. It confirms the point I made for years that the mental stress is on the attacker far more than the retriever. 

You could see yesterday Federer losing on MP again, by being over aggressive on return. It can pay off or break. 

Nonetheless very bad stats from Fed, especially compared to his peers.

This is rubbish and you know it.
Nole saved all 4 of those MPs in USO 10 11 with pure guts.

Change the record, will ya!

Nothing will confirm more my point than that USO 2011 SF. Djoko shitting himself every time there was a pressure point...only to go for his shots where he had nothing left to lose. 

As this record shows, your man is the ultimate retriever...Why he will never be popular. Look at Tsi...a bit of a cheat from a small country as well but his game will give him support everywhere. 

You started it! Winking

Nadal will not win tomorrow should he get there. Tsi has already learnt that by extending the rallies, Nadal becomes the loser. Shame Tsi is tired from having played the most matches in the season so far!

Nole gets another cakewalk draw in Rome.  Fed, Thiem, Tsitsipas - even Fognini - are all in Rafa's side of the draw.

Whoever wins today will need to improve significantly overnight if they want to have a chance tomorrow.

Tough cookie this Tsitsipas.  He is not as flashy as Shapovalov, but I suspect he may be steelier inside.

And again, this kid is a tough cookie.  It cannot be easy for a SHBH to play Rafa on clay - even if it is in Madrid and even if Rafa is not quite what he used to be - but he is not intimidated at all.

Yes has all the making of a future great....and I am not sure I see a weakness on specific surfaces....maybe grass ...old grass but not this one we have nowadays. so nope....a future GS champion potentially.

I am starting to rethink my view that Shapovalov has bigger shots than Tsitsipas.  Tsitsipas is hitting big, but he is still playing within himself.  I am not sure Shapo could hit this big and still keep it under control.  He hits bigger, but he also sprays it way more.

That was a poor set from Rafa, too many UEs.

Nadal only got that break because of a bit of luck and Tsitsi's level dipping. Not great quality.

nadal gets 90% of his points from his opponents' UEs...so nothing new here.

Nadal's problem is that he is no longer impenetrable.  He may or may not win today, but I do not see how he wins tomorrow.  Likewise for Stefanos.  If he wins today, he will find out tomorrow that shots that were winners today will be coming back, and eventually he will start making errors.

No when he's playing well points he gets most of his points from forced errors, and controls the rallies.

He should just take the boat back to Mallorca at 5pm tomorrow and pretend he got lost on the way to the match.

To beat Nadal, Tsi would have needed to arrive fresher. has played a lot recently....including a tough 3 setter yesterday. 

Still he is not out yet.

Tsitsi had a bye in the first round and has only dropped 1 set all tournament, moreover as I said yesterday his match was only 2 hours vs Zverev and he played it before Nadal's match. If he's losing this due to fatigue he either needs to quit tennis or find a CVAC chamber pronto.

Nadal looking increasingly frustrated and now 15-40 on his service.

Nadal burying his forehand into the net on his service ... still looking very vulnerable despite Mark Petchey's attempts to describe the match as well in hand.

I saw Tsi's ball in and when the referee went to see it he saw it in too.
