    Book it. Djokovic is getting to 18 slams by the end of AO 2020.

    djokovic won this match due to his clutchness...but he cant clutch win every slam here onwards. Federer has shown he cannot protect his records against djokovic, but the field may do it for him. djokovic's level of play was overall not convincing and it was only his clutch play that saved him

    Where does Djokovic rank all time on grass?

    Compared to djokovic, sampras had meh competition too at W. Djokovic at 5 slams is below sampras right now overall but his performances in finals were so impressive against two other ATGs - Fed and Nadal.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    yes. its ok. you go for your shots. if you miss its execution, and that is only in his hands. But Federer's down the t serve is one of his kill shots. he hits it very well... i was including more than the MPs btw (i.e. djokovic;s general returning on the deuce side.) But the MPs should have...

    Federer 0-8 in Finals v Nadalovic at FO/Wimbledon

    He actually lost to corretja when up 2-0 in sets. try again. dont give me the prime nonsense either. pete has no business losing a 2-0 lead on grass against corretja on grass whether he is 25 or 31.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    the pattern is djokovic's return on the deuce side, and he got burned on mps before. have a look at their match history and the results in deciding sets. its looks seriously ugly for federer against novak especially in recent history. i dont think djokovic is going to able to get a solid...

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    margins are so small. it literally separated a wimbledon championship. if this was the first time it happened, i would have said whatever. But we had some past history to use and we know the patterns of play in djokovic - federer matches. these guys have played many deciding sets and tie...

    Which player is mentally the strongest?

    Federer fights the hardest even when he is down in the score, which explains why he loses in titanic battles. djokovic is the most clutch nadal has the best concentration / intensity.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    im happy to be proven wrong, but the serve i am referring to was in the deuce court at 40-15. the serve in the 2012 SF was a serve in the AD court which djokovic netted with a FH. his serve selection in the ad court was the right one. unfortunately he got passed at net... the one in the deuce...

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    this is pretty much it right here. Rather than rally and try to play the points, fed rushed the net going for the quick resolution. djokovic makes that shot 8 times out of 10. that approach to showed a lack of respect for djokovic's passing abilities and he got rightfully punished. prior to...

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Roger Federer [2] vs Rafael Nadal [3]

    federer's level always goes up and down against nadal regardless of whether he is 23 or 37. Nadal is so solid and consistent and that is why he beats federer in tight matches with few exceptions. Nadal still has a really solid chance to win this match and federer continues to squander his...

    2019 Wimbledon R3: Roger Federer(2) vs Lucas Poille

    if millman can beat fed on the faster usopen surface...why not a more talented player like pouille on a slower grass surface. Federer's serve does not have the same strength as previous yrs on grass...less # of aces etc.

    How many Roland-Garros titles will Nadal win?

    he'a so above everyone on clay - its crazy. this was the year he might be vulnerable..but he still is so good that he was able to rescue his form at RG. unless some serious physical issue hits - nadal's level on clay will still be good enough to win 2 more RGs. nadal also has the heart of a...

    Safin vs Nadal - Roland Garros Final

    this match only looks good on paper...and safin looks great on paper against a whole host of opponents. but he still lost to many guys who he had no business losing to. funny thing is that before they even played a match, ppl speculated based on paper, that fed should eat nadal alive on every...

    Federer will win Wimbledon 2019

    too many ppl can take him out on grass....his reactions on the return, shots of the ground, serve are not operating at a high level. he wins because of his experience. the draw needs to be favorable....nadal and djokovic will enter W in good form but will be vulnerable as well... there are...
