    Federer officially retiring (serious)

    End of an era. Thanks for all of the memories Fed

    So are we entering a dark era?

    Guess not since the self-referential feedback loop in how everything feeds into the grand narrative of the Asterisk Era is incredibly strong.

    So are we entering a dark era?

    I mean, you do realize that things aren't stuck in stone right? Djokovic did recover, Ned didn't collapse, and for all of the memes and ****posts, the Next Gen put up some good performances as well. I originally didn't understand how people could have the mindset in which Fed's best years are...

    So are we entering a dark era?

    I think this is the only year so far that neither had a great tournament nor a consistently impressive level from either Nadal or Djokovic in the slams they've won. The combination of that and the Next Gen continuation of inconsistency is why 2022 has particularly been pretty bad. Just...

    Wimbledon Federer's 2nd Serve % Tournament Comparison

    Wait do Federer fans think his 17 performance was weak or something? His draw/opponents stank for sure, but I thought it was well recognized 17 Grasserer was quite good.

    How does this dude only have 3 US Opens

    Huh? My position has always been AO: 7-3 RG: 5-5 WI: 3-7 US: 5-5 TBH though, I can easily see 6-4 and 4-6 for both AO and WI respectively and might favor that position. Fed's 14 and 15 WI performances all throughout the tournament are of course majorly underrated.

    How does this dude only have 3 US Opens

    No, it's because Djokovic's game induces errors and tightness unless you mean to tell me that Fed's game centers around high percentage tennis. Are you on the StrongRule "all of Djokovic's opponents magically get worse and start missing for no reason when they play him" grind now as well?

    How does this dude only have 3 US Opens

    I should have been clearer with my post I guess, but I don't even really disagree with most of your analysis. First set and until 4-1, Djokovic was outplaying Federer.

    I'll amend my statement. Medium mental Djokovic would have won that match in four or five.

    I regularly watch that match as a reminder that the only slam that Peak Federer would decisively beat Peak Djokovic would be Wimby.

    Did we watch the same match?

    How does this dude only have 3 US Opens

    Watch the 2007 match. He gave up 5 set points in the first and was up a break in the second. A slightly mentally stronger Novak would have won it in four or five.

    Federer fans, if Djokovic or Nadal surpass Federer’s slam count, will accept them as GOAT?

    Of course it does? Novak was playing incredibly subpar tennis and by his own admission was on the brink of retirement. At best, Nole fans were looked at sympathetically and at worst, relentlessly and regularly mocked. Considering this was on era where some of the worst ****posters ran rampant...
