    i got a hunch djokovic will win more than 20 slams

    He will. There’s no one to beat him. The only people left playing top level tennis are the same people playing top level tennis when he entered. Tennis has usually had the young super star come in, to whom the baton was passed, allowing the previous generation to retire. The closes this...

    Nadal closer to Federer on Grass than Federer is to Nadal on clay

    This is incorrect. At worst they are equal. What is true is Nadal is miles better on clay than anyone else is on any surface. Federer hasn’t lost to a bunch of nobodies on clay for like 4 years in a row in the first few rounds. Especially not during his peak.

    Now don't tell me Fed is not peaking

    Literally the only thing better about Federer today vs 12+ years ago is improvements in racket technology means he can wield a bigger racket with a bigger sweet spot and higher tolerance, but similar weight and other characteristics, the same way he did his older, smaller frame. Federer spent a...

    "Poor tactics"

    If Federer had switched to a larger racket earlier in his career he would have stood a better chance. He still wouldnt have won.

    "Poor tactics"

    It used to actually be a little worse with Federer. Several games against Rafa/Novak when he was losing to them, you'd see him start with a new strategy, and win the first set, or start off strong, at the very least, and then see him revert to his standard strategy by the time the second set...

    Federer: ''I think both me and Novak are naturally attacking players''

    Djokovic’s style changes based on his opponent. His matches with aged are amazingly attacking, against Murray are excruciatingly defensive, and those with Nadal are somewhere in between. I suspect it’s easier to successfully play defensive as a naturally attacking player than vice versa and so...

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    I don’t understand how people didn’t realize that when he was playing all those backhand drop shots, or when he’s been trying to recreate 90s grass on this slow USO surface by S&V the majority of his 2nd serves.

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    Agreed. So the fans aren’t rooting for the guy who “earns” the points. They are rooting for the guy they like. Again, this isn’t that hard. And yeah, Federer barely earned his break either. He’s been playing like crap throughout. Millman just played like a little more crap in the game Federer...

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    Ummm. People are cheering for Federer and not Millman because they want Federer to win. This isn’t that hard.

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    He should have won the set point in the 3rd set as well, but he threw it away. Though to be fair, Millman was the better play in Set 3

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    Because people are rooting for Federer?

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    I usually root for the guy who beats Fed in a tournament. I hope Djokovic absolutely destroys Millman.

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    It was gifted by Fed. Millman did little to deserve it. I mean, I don’t blame the guy for being excited, but this Federer would have forfeited the match if he was playing a top 10 player because he would stand no chance.

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    Wow. Fed is mentally out of it. Missing easy volleys, missing easy overheads at the net, playing dropshots for no reason, and cannot buy a first serve.

    Exciting 4 and 5 Set Matches!!

    You do t even know who they are supposed to negotiate with and think you have something to contribute. They did negotiate with the grand slams, and that’s why they get paid what they do. There is a reason that other than a few clowns like Tipsaveric, very few people on the men’s tour complain...
