Five months ago, i posted the result of the Wimbledon final was a travesty for tennis and i was done with following the the sport.
And my opinion on this has not changed one jot. I haven't seen such an undeserving...
I have lived on this earth for 30 years and i have never witnessed a sporting result that made me want to stop following a sport. I say this as a Man U fan whose witnessed us turn to rubbish (and Liverpool win their sixth champions league.) An England fan who witnessed that abysmal 2015 rugby...
AO 2017 was the match to secure the GOAT status. The final one before Dimitrov and the next gen took over.
Two and a half years later, with the big three having won all the majors since, we are indeed still making these threads.
If they played in the 80's
-Federer would have great matches against Prime Mcenroe at Wimbledon. I believe Federer would edge out Becker and Edberg there, particularly the former whose big serving style would play into Federers hands.
-Djokovic vs Connors, McEnroe and Lendl at US open would be...

He relied on speed to get wins before then. Nowadays he has to be more of a shotmaker to make up for that declining speed.
That is great against the rest of the field (he could beat them walking...
-Kyrgios has won about 12% of return games this year.
-Querrey is a poor man's Roddick
-Tsonga is at 19% for his career and is well past his best. He was abysmal against Rafa
-Sugita and Sousa aren't worth mentioning.
Your point is spot on ;)
Australia 2019. Nadal looked like the GOAT, until he faced Djokovic. Those wins over Tiafoe and Tsit were truly epic.
Wimbledon 2019; Nadal looked like the GOAT taking apart old Tsonga and 65th ranked Querrey.
Djokovic also looked like the GOAT in that mesmorizing quarter final against...
I already made a thread talking about this issue. Feel free to add to it ;)
This thread though is focused on the Williams - Strykova "match."
