Nav and Graf are better athletes than Serena on average, but I'd take 2002 Serena against either in the decathlon--Serena has a better balance of upper and lower body strength than they do.

That's an oxymoron. 2-handed BH is anything but aesthetically pleasing.

Yes, it's a personal thing. Borg & Evert were two guaranteed cures for
insomnia. The Borg - Lendl FO final was such a boring moonball-fest that
the Swedes easily passed the Euthanasia bill. The only matches as boring as
that one were the two Lendl - Wilander USO finals, the Sampras - Ivanisevic
Wimbledon final (boring doesn't have to be long!) & the Rafa - Djoker AO
final in 2012 (athletic isn't always exciting).

For me, the two-handed backhand is a nicer looking shot. Borg, Evert, Agassi, Djokovic all have beautiful two-handed backhands IMO.

For YOU maybe, but definitely not for me.

I'm not talking about Borg-Lendl matches! I'm talking about Borg-McEnroe or Borg-Connors matches. Those were the best IMO.
 
Also, I don't think Nadal-Djokovic matches are boring. They have a real rivalry going. Djokovic-Murray matches boring or Nadal-Ferrer matches boring? Yes.

IMO, single handed backhand is more versatile and when well produced by the likes of Federer, Lendl, Edberg, Kuerten, Sampars or even Henin is simply more beautiful to watch then any double hander.

No one was allowed to analyze the rubble Max until all the steel had
been carted away.
 
The steel had contained evidence of controlled demolition.
 
Fortunately it was discovered several years later that the dust from the
demolition also had smoking gun chemical evidence of explosives in it.
 
Several dust samples were preserved and tested with an immaculate
chain of custody record.

There was opportunity to plant the explosives and much unusual
activity going on in the towers prior to 9/11.
 
But when you have ample evidence that explosives were used, the least
of our worries is to figure out the dates and times they were planted.
 
When you have melted steel and concrete cemented together in a blob,
you know that a building collapse could not have produced it.
This evidence was photographed and preserved.
 
As mentioned in a post a few minutes ago it was discovered several years
after 9/11 that the dust from the demolition also had smoking gun
chemical evidence of explosives in it.
 
Several dust samples were preserved and tested with an immaculate
chain of custody record.
 
Scientific papers detailing the explosives in the dust samples
have been published in international peer-reviewed science journals.
 
The fact that explosives were found in the 9/11 dust can no longer be
contested.

Show me the evidence of this please?
 
Or was it debunked in your head? :)
 
I told you it was published in a peer-reviewed international science
journal.
 
Show me that you have put more than 10 minutes of research into this.
I've been studying this for years now.

I assume you're referring to the "nano-thermite" works?

Nadal: the knees, the knees, but I'm fine, but the knees, the knees.
 
Says he had a broken wrist last year too. Mmm.

:) Hey PwL, did you get those sticks? If so, how're they working for ya?
Well-controlled volleying with a racket that big is for me a challenge.
YMMV.

YMMV.
 
Two days after I got them, my father passed away and I just started to feel better the last two weeks.
 
But I strung one of the four racquets for my 15 years old son, he grew up playing with the prostaff 90, and he beat the hell out of me in the last ten days with the new stick. First his backhand got much better and he can finish forehands from the baseline. He can just go over the ball with ease to hit backhand passing shot.
 
I used his racquet for 15 minutes and it simply dictated me to start hitting in a different way.
I hit my ground strokes the same way Federer does, I Analyzed his mechanics for years.
The racquet has almost the specs like the prostaff 90 but to my surprise it plays very differently.
 
The racquet forces you to go over the ball more than hitting flat and if you do it, you will be rewarded. But if you forget and hit the ball the old way the ball will simply fly.
 
I am surprised Federer didn't suffer more than he did when he started to play with it.
 
And clearly he needed long time to learn to play with it, not to adjust it.
 
I will be stringing one tonight for myself and will string the other two when I get the Luxilon string I ordered.
 
I didn't try volleying with it, but I expect it will require some brushing downwards when hitting forehand volleys.

Now at least you are making fun of those conspiracy nutters. And I thought you were one of them, like TennisGay and Carry.

Solid win for Nole in Eastbourne today, beating Medvedev 6-4, 6-4. Same score line Federer beat the young Russian in Halle a week ago. Good sign for Nole.
 
Now Monfils...

Pete was blackmailed by the Australian secret service most probably.
