    Today's semifinals feature the top 4 players. Unlike the last 2 "Slams". I contend that whoever wins here is the real #1 and the GOAT. I have a feeling it won't be the guy with the elegant strokes.

    Fact is, Fed is up against 3 players who have all beaten him in the past, and who share the attribute of not having too much love for him. Quite different from a Roddick or Del Potro or Haas or Soderling who lose a match to him before the first serve is struck. This is his real test as a champion.

    Fact is, at RG, Nadal, Murray, and Djoko were all knocked out before they could face Federer, and at Wimbledon, Murray and Djoko were knocked out before they could face Federer. So if Fed faced them in those slams, it wouldn't be a "real test" - the real test was beating the players good enough to reach him in the draw.

    Impossible, because everyone knows all top players (especially Federer) tank Cincy every year.

    If Cincy is the real slam, then Fed leads Murray 2-0 in the slam H2H :)

    Yes, I saw the match. Federer's BH did not impress me a whole lot.

    Tomorrow he will face real opposition. He better bring his A game or Nadal is gonna show him who is the real boss.

    Well, this isn't "Highlander" where there "Can be only one". Unfortunately for you there will be other tounrnaments. If Cincy was the be all end all then yes i would agree.

    Wow, Nadal must be real good if he can show Federer who's boss without even playing in the match.

    Well, your feeling was wrong. :)

    Anyway, it's nice of you to concede that Federer is the true number 1 and GOAT.

    But at least now you'll be quoted for saying Federer is the GOAT now that you've written that.

    Fed did well today. But his result is still tainted by the fact that he did not face Nadal.

    The specific strain of ownage synthesized in this thread ought to be bottled up and diluted into a million samples to be used as a vaccine for troll thread propogation syndrome.

    Nadal is tainted by the fact that Joker handed him his arse then subsequently got HIS arse handed to him by Fed.

    I'm curious, is sureshs Hindi for dingleberry?
