I noticed that too, but I don't mind that too much.At least they are within a few months of Fed's Bday. It used to be horrible in 2008-2010, people would say Federer was 30 so frequently it drove me nuts.
I think by "stick to the baseline" he means that he intends to stay right on top of the baseline so he can be more aggressive and have more opportunities to attack rather than allowing himself to get pushed behind the line and lose control.
Oh I agree. I would be over the moon if Stan wins.
With that said, I wouldn't say this is Stan's match to win. Even last year, Djokovic's meltdown towards the end sealed his fate. I feel that Stan has teh game to win, but Djokovic has to help out with streaky play of his own for Stan to win.
These poll results are utterly absurd. About as absurd as any poll I have seen before on TT. Maybe we should conduct "Who do you wish wins?" polls.
I will happily eat crow if Stan does win, but I think Stan will be lucky to even push this to 5.
Jokes aside, I think its unreasonable to consider Dimitrov a subpar competitor.Even in the final game he still had belief he could break back. I think its safe to say that Dimitrov won't win a dozen majors now, but he can definitely improve a lot moving forward. I came into this thread earlier...
Murray is just a better and more talented player than Dimitrov.
"Several grand slams" LOL, for now lets hope he wins even one. I definitely hope to see him win a slam one day. You can't fault the effort the guy puts into these matches.
I think this match will be an important lesson for Janowicz. He will learn the hard way about what happens to you when you drop shot the fastest players on tour. Janowicz looked so surprised that Monfils got that drop shot back on breakpoint lol
Yeah, I bought some of the hype last year too. He really doesn't look like a "special" talent to me anymore. He is a very good player who hits flashy shots, but the guy doesn't overwhelm any top players with his game.
But who knows, maybe he will surprise us somewhere down the road and win a...
