And no. This is NOT close to being Nadal's sweetest year. This is his WEAKEST year in which he won slams. I'd argue that he's been weaker this year than in years where he only won 1 slam.
Nadal's consistency was good. He made SF or more in each slam. However he was pounded by Novak and Fed...
After Nadal and Djokovic - it is Thiem who can win RG.
And yes Nadal is bound to have a letdown as he gets older.
No one else has a chance. And please don't pretend Tsitsipas has a chance. The hype on this board is crazy. If I had to bet money, I would on Tsitsipas not even making a slam...
I agree with you man. But still think about after 4-4 in the TB. Tsitsipas did NOT do anything, Dominic just missed sitters. Tsitsipas just hung in there and Dominic just fell apart. It was sad to see.
Thiem giving a very nice speech right now.
Winning in life is NOT about titles and money. It's about being a good human being and acting the way nature demands of us. Being kind, being selfless, having gratitude and serving others. That is what brings happiness, not the material things.
Let's have a wager. I bet you that Medvedev will win way more slams than Stefanos. Also unless the big 3 get injured or retire, Tsitsipas won't come close to winning a slam in the next 2 years. Whereas Medvedev will still win.
Feel free to quote my post later.
That TB from Thiem was an awful performance. He missed sitters that even the TTW posters would have made. You will never see Novak, Nadal etc miss such kind of points in 3rd set TB.
Tsitsipas did NOT win the 3rd set TB, but Dominic lost it. And ultimately that's the story of his career so...
