    Loved the post after that. That's it, Fed should just chill with family. Then hit practice after practice after practice.

    I did mention somewhere else that I rather have Fed win USO19 than Wimb19. Just can't find that post of mine. If the man does the right things again and is not injured, I think he still has a chance barring another Djoko face-off. Just can't predict how much this final took out of him. If the...

    Two similar Wimbledon championship points for Federer (2019 and 2012). Different Outcomes

    Fed froze right there. Should have proceeded with the run to the net but instead changed his mind. Too late by then.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    Fed just lost the concentration to serve on the good spots suddenly after the 2 aces. Absolutely no clue what caused it. Mental fatigue to pull it off (after 4 hrs) or gone off the boil. But he played fantastic after being broken :eek:. I wish Fed would actually tell us what happened in his head...

    yep, cramped himself I think. He was late to get to his right against Djoko.

    Two similar Wimbledon championship points for Federer (2019 and 2012). Different Outcomes

    The difference is that the serve spot against Djoko was bad (it was first serve in). Also the return shot from Fed against Murray was closer to the side line. If Fed was able to get the same placement against Djoko, he would have time to finish it at the net. So the Wimbledon trophy was within...

    Roger Federer: ´I Missed My Chances´

    So, Djoko is the least mentally strong of the 3.

    Which player is mentally the strongest?

    Poll result: Djokovic. Reality: Djoko is 2 away from Fed 11 slam finals lost. Say what???

    Roger Federer: ´I Missed My Chances´

    Just don’t be easily fooled or come to the conclusion Fed is not mentally strong. Here’s why: Fed - 20 wins, 11 finals lost Nadal - 18 wins, 8 finals lost Djoko - 16 wins, 9 finals lost So are you trolling around that Fed is a weakling? If so you need to need to look deeper into your soul when...

    Wanna try that again on the recent CP’s. :p

    Our guy should have been the runaway winner as far as slam count goes. Very unlucky that he got 2 powerful ATG’s 5 yrs younger across all surfaces for more than a decade. Those two have had nothing remotely close to fear. And will not for the next 5 years. After all things said and done, even...

    The only thing going against Fed as far Slam Count goes is the # of chances left. I think he plays until 40. Maybe retires at Basel 2021. So that’s 9 slams. Not bad at all. However, if Fed doesn’t get any movement on the slam count, 2014 2015 2019 missed chances are going to rear its head.

    If Fed has no extra baggage (Wimb19 loss) and makes the USO19 SF thats half the battle won. If Nadal/Djoko are in the same half and both don't make it to the SF, guess what. :giggle: Rinse and repeat for AO20, Wimb20 and USO20. As long as he is top 3 and the Next Gen fails, Fed definitely has a...

    Case in point here is Djoko was doing superb outside-clay. For AO17, Nadal was not. I could argue that had Nadal been in a similar form like current Djoko, then AO17 win might not have happened at all. So there's that. Fed winning Wimb19 was a non-starter after spending a lot on Nadal. Fed...

    That's the only small thing that keeps bothering me. If it was CP's on the opponents serve, it wouldn't bother me as much. In any case, Fed almost stole the match. Folks need to think about that a lot before getting worked up about the CP's.
