    Wawrinka vs Djokovic RG 15 final.

    We all know somebody will eventually mention "Federer", so it may as well be me this time. ;) In Federer's dominating 2006 season, his lone slam final loss was at RG to Rafael Nadal. In Djokovic's dominating 2015 season, his lone slam final loss was at RG to Stan Wawrinka.

    No one ACTUALLY believes Wawrinka could have defeated a healthy Nadal in the 14 AO Final, right?

    It's apparent Rafa suffered an injury early in the final. But I don't think it was an injury serious enough to cause the loss, and think Rafa lost mainly because it's the Australian Open (where, after winning his lone title, he's suffered losses to Murray, Ferrer, Berdych, Wawrinka, Verdasco...

    Players who never applaud their opponents

    I hate when players applaud their opponents. I say it should only happen in exhibitions.

    TTW loves Baghdatis <3

    Yes, his name is said here more than anyone else, and we all know which fanbase is the reason for that. That said, Baghdatis was an exciting young presence. His run to the AO final has to be among the most impressive this century for a young player, and he backed it up with a run to the...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    Ok, lets accept that Baghdatis is of Federer's generation. This means that Wawrinka (also born in 85) is of Federer's generation. Well, as I stated earlier, he's a player who would NEVER be a slam champion in Federer's generation. So, Djokovic's generation consisted of 2 past-generations (with...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    At the AO and Wimbledon, we have not seen a better Rafa the past decade (no titles). He's lost to 8 different players in his last 8 AO appearances, and to 7 different players in his last 7 Wimbledon appearances. At the USO, Rafa and Djokovic haven't met for the past 7 years. Both Federer and...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    Baghdatis is not of Federer's generation. He was a strong NextGen of Federer's generation who failed to develop into a strong CurrentGen of Djokovic's generation.

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    Idiot. Unless they retired early, ALL past ATGs had their slam runs ended by their NextGens. Players of Connors generation had their slam runs slowed and eventually ended by players of Borg/Lendl/McEnroe's generation...whose slams runs were slowed by Willander/Edberg/Becker's generation...whose...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    Lets compare. Federer: NextGen Nadal slowed Federer's Wimbledon run in 2008...5 years after Roger's first Wim. NextGen DelPotro stopped Federer's USO run in 2009...5 years after Roger's first USO. NextGen Djokovic slowed Federer's AO run in 2008...4 years after Roger's first AO. NextGen Nadal...

    Thiem's Time Has Come

    A win is a win perhaps, but it doesn't change the gist of the thoughts about Thiem. Struggling at the slams (physically and/or mentally) has been a chronic issue with the younger players for years. Hence the continued criticism.

    Fernando Verdasco

    Verdasco is definitely a Studliest Of All Times candidate.

    More talented player, Nishikori or Dimitrov ?

    I agree, but voted for Nishikori for one reason only: He has multiple wins over each Big-3.

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    How lucky it is for Djokovic that 13 years after winning his first AO title, there is still no strong NextGen to slow his run.
