    Nadal can be remembered for how he fought, and Federer can be remembered for how he played. But I think Djokovic will only be remembered for what he achieved.

    Here is one example on how Federer...

    Brad Gilbert mentioned on ESPN that Taylor Townsend once played a 69 yr old woman in an ITF circuit a few years ago. That got me curious so I did some search, and came up with this article. It turned...

    Yeah, but Krause could have gone much faster, since she was sitting behind Yavi, and didn't start kicking until after the last water jump. And she created a 4 sec gap in the last 150m.

    How do you enforce this? Mandatory chromosome tests? At what age do you start? Some younger athletes may not even know that they have DSD. How do you disqualify them without violating their privacy?

    So she still had one second positive split, while leapfrogging everyone in the homestretch.

    Here is the Semenya race from 2016. It's hard to tell the 200m split, but I guess it is about 25 flat.
