    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    I remember hitting overheads from the baseline in my playing days.. you time the shots right and that's a laser coming back to your opponent. This can be done when the overhead smash from your opponent is weak

    C'mon bruh, Fed has been pretty much playin at the same level for about 15 years so he's never really looked out of his prime too me.

    Plus he's been playin against them for over 10 years(Novak since 06' and Nadal since 04'), Nadal has owned him and Novak got better and better until he was able to beat Fed on a consistent basis.

    His only real rival has been Novak, and Fed just won Australia at 35 yrs old, so Fed has never showed a backside of his career in his play, dude is still in his prime like Serena.

    Makes sense. His weakest surface and he has not played on it all year.

    I think he believes this is his best chance to win another Wimbledon and us open. But he can only do it if he's 100% fit. He said he will return to the French next year that will probably be his farewell tour.

    Its strange that it's deemed as such a bad surface for him because only nadal has stopped him winning multiple french opens.

    ROME -- Novak Djokovic is joining forces with Andre Agassi in an effort to return to No. 1.

    Djokovic announced Sunday that Agassi will coach him at the French Open, which starts next Sunday.

    "I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we decided to get together in Paris," Djokovic said. "So he's going to be there. We'll see what [the] future brings.

    "We are both excited to work together and see where it takes us. We don't have any long-term commitment. It's just us trying to get to know each other in Paris a little bit," Djokovic added. "He will not stay the whole tournament. He's going to stay only to a certain time, and then we'll see after that what's going to happen."
