    Let's NEVER say Fed's competition was weak

    Nah that was 2020. 2019 was when Nadal bageled Djokovic at Rome.

    2006 Nadal or 2011 Nadal - which version was better in the Wimbledon Final ?

    I just loved the wording you used. “Wannabe winners” is something I need to start using as well
  3. Third Serve

    2004 a significantly better year than 2014 in men's tennis

    Murray was garbage in 2014 by his standards.
  4. Third Serve

    Was Rafa favorite in any of the slams that he missed between 2009 and 2014?

    Now change it to "thoughest" and you can call it a day
  5. Third Serve

    Was Rafa favorite in any of the slams that he missed between 2009 and 2014?

    I thought that was Nadal's Wimbledon 2019 draw
  6. Third Serve

    Rate Federer of the USO 15 final from a 1 to 9 scale

    I like this method of weighing play set-by-set.
  7. Third Serve

    Why is the Nole Slam given so little credit around here?

    To put it EloQuently, Zverev dumped them into the net
  8. Third Serve

    Was 2011 the best year of the 00s?

    Can't forget Davydenko's WTF run.
  9. Third Serve

    Was 2011 the best year of the 00s?

    This ain’t about the double account business. It’s just that you can’t really speak for all Fed fans here. At the time, I figured that if Nadal was bad enough to lose to Rosol of all people, he wasn’t beating Fed anyway. I’m genuinely confused as to how the EloQuent stuff sprang up. It’s such...

    Was 2011 the best year of the 00s?

    It took a lot out of me to channel him
  11. Third Serve

    Was 2011 the best year of the 00s?

    2012 was better, possibly 2009 as well.
  12. Third Serve

    2005 a considerably better year than 2015 in men's tennis

    I think 2011-2013 would edge out that comparison but it's close. Ok, after a minute of pondering, now I think they're pretty much equal lol
  13. Third Serve

    2004 a significantly better year than 2014 in men's tennis

    I think 2004 was better, but your argument doesn't make sense at all. Every Slam in 2014 was won by a different player. Stan took AO, Ned took RG, Djoker took Wimby, and Cilic took USO.
  14. Third Serve

    Who thinks the ATP World Tour Finals should have stayed in London?

    Houston courts were nice but YEC should be indoors seeing as it occurs during the indoor season.

    2004 a significantly better year than 2014 in men's tennis

    Me preparing for the meltdown that will ensue:
  16. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    Gotta give props for the analogy
  17. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    Can't blame him honestly. Some of the logic around here is too dumb to waste time on.
  18. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    Surprised you think so lowly of Fed that his successes hinge on the difference of level in players ranked outside of the top 10 (and even top 20).
  19. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    Participating in this thread has been a wild ride lol
  20. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    My point is that there isn't a big enough difference between them for Fed to magically go from crushing early 2006 opponents in straight sets to losing to 2015 Isner. The difference in level of those opponents has to be massive for that to be the case. Either that or Fed's level was equally...
  21. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    Huh? What would my own experience have to contribute to the topic? I feel like this discussion is exclusive to competitive sports (or competitive anything, really) which I've not often participated in (I play tennis as a hobby, not competitively). ok sure, but I'm saying that Fed was regularly...
  22. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    Well, if you lose to a bad opponent that's a pretty damning indictment of level lol Unless you're suggesting 2006-2007 Fed would have lost to those players as well. Kind of an odd position to take considering he was regularly beating stronger players in 2006 than the players he lost to in 2015...
  23. Third Serve

    2006 Federer was the peak level of tennis until this point.

    In 2006 he won more Slams, Masters, and took the YEC. Dunno bout you but I think those stats are a little more meaningful than inflated prize money (which has also increased over time irrespective of the quality of the tournament) and the "Lew Rating" (besides, why subtract the ranking lol?).
