Anyway to continue trolling
, what about the beatdown peak Fed received from injured Kuerten at the FO in 2004 (6-4, 6-4. 6-4) . I don't recall Djokovic ever being beat this badly in his peak at a slam(assuming 2010-2014 = peak for Nole).
Djokovic was beaten in straights in Wimbledon 2010 by Berdych.
The point many miss or continue to ignore is how the surfaces also lined up against Roger. He didn't have fast surfaces like what Pete had in his 30s to enhance his attacking skills. Pete made consecutive finals at US open in 30s but Roger had to fight on slow surface and still he was on match points on either times against Novak Djokovic when he lost in 2010 and 2011.
People were complaining when just ONE surface appeared fast, well, am talking about Madrid blue clay. However no one has issues with ALL the surfaces being slowed down. They have slowed down all the surfaces and took away weapons from attacking players. Still Roger is doing good. Sadly that point is lost .
