    No one will forget Fed, there's a reason the guy has such massive fan support even compared to his rivals/other stars. However in terms of style of play IMO Fed will have minimal influence on the next generation. His game formed in an era where you still had a variety of conditions in tennis...

    Lawl, Trollander strikes again. Djokodal are not tactical masters, they just have higher shot tolerance from the baseline which plays dividends on slower surfaces (ie. most of the tour today). Nadal in particular has probably the least variance in his game compared to any ATG. If's why he...

    Is this really Peak Djokovic?

    Has Felix even won a title yet? I'd be careful about hyping any young prospect these days.

    Is this really Peak Djokovic?

    No IMO, his peak years were 2011 and 2015. The best I've seen him play on grass was 2015 Wimbledon.

    It's also funny how they trash Fed (mentally weak, overrated, weak era benefactor, choker, ballerina etc.) yet they don't realize what does that say about the current state of men's game and Djokodal opposiiton. Mentally weak, overrated 38 year old choker is still your main opposition? Oh boy...

    The us open surface is so slowwwwwww.

    It certainly will be? It was slow ast year and that worked against Nadal so no, it's not really tied to his success or lack of it.

    Djokovic is finally getting the credit he deserves

    Well Novak's dad is his dad, he doesn't speak for Novak. To his credit, I don't think I ever heard Novak say a bad thing about any player. I think he and Nadal get along pretty well alt things considering. Recently, Kyrgios really went after Novak and his response was very lenient. Novak just...

    No one is talking about choking Nadal :)

    They go hot and cold in various stages of their career (there are many different versions of the big 3 over the last 10+ years) but I also think that at some point they lose certain aspects of the game irrecoverably. Nadal just used to be a better competitor in my eyes. It's not something...

    That would have had more weight if McEnroe and other commies didn't repeat themselves in that regard. First it was the 2017 AO final, now it's this year's Wimbledon final etc. etc. The most important game (well tiebreak) was the one Fed won against Scud in his first Wimbledon final, that opened...

    Djokovic is finally getting the credit he deserves

    Don't think it's correlated, he faced Rafa in the final. It maybe have give Novak more motivation against Fed in the future but then after a certain point Novak became a the mental beast against Nadal as well and they never had any bad blood (that I knw of) so who knows.

    Djokovic is finally getting the credit he deserves

    I think he's one of the nicest guys on tour but I don't know him personally to be able to claim that with certainty. Certainly, he doesn't criticize other players publicly or take the bait when they criticize him.

    No one is talking about choking Nadal :)

    It's about media manufactured images that fans still vehemently believe in. More astute Nadal fans (like TennisFan3, Zep etc.) noticed and discussed his decline in the mental department whether it's clutch play on big points or often struggling to serve out a set (thus letting the opponent back...

    Djokovic is finally getting the credit he deserves

    I know that you can't. Yes, Fed ocassionally took digs against Novak and the latter did have a penchance for retiring from matches at a time. Your point being?

    Djokovic is finally getting the credit he deserves

    I know, Djokovic consider Fed to be one of the greatest players of all time. That's nothing new. If you can find where he said that Fed is a choker who won slams due to weak era yet he's still so proud to beat him, please share.

    Djokovic is finally getting the credit he deserves

    Again, either Fed is a truly great player and as such it was a great triumph for Novak or he's an overrated choker in which case it's not really a big deal. Can't have it both ways. As for Fed playing his best tennis, it wasn't even the best he played this tourney, let alone compared to his...
