    The first few lines are utter lies and complete horsesh*t. The Gita only talks about varna based on skill, not based on birth. The Vedas do not discriminate based on birth either. That's how Hinduism was for thousands of years. Hinduism only got rigid wrt to birth based system after...

    @maratha_warrior : you seem to be living in a BS propaganda filled la la land. Abrogation of Art 370 helped Valmiki Dalits get equal rights in Jammu&Kashmir for first time after independence. Modi himself is from a backward caste. VHP collected soil from various Dalit temples for Ram Mandir...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    umm, no. Djokovic wasn't prime level. That's why Thiem took him to 5 sets. Just as Cilic did so to Fed in AO 2018 final. Secondly Thiem wasn't the only guy to take djoko to 5 sets at AO in last 3 years. Fritz did so at AO 2021.

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    Medvedev was pretty weak in AO 2021 final. Reality. mike danny didn't say Thiem of AO 2020 final was weak. He said fed would have more slams at Wim if he faced the level of Thiem at AO 2020. Which is true. Read below. Theim in AO 2020 final was good, but not great. Just like Cilic in AO 18...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    your quote again: you mentioned Djokovic at Wim - there was no need to. That's what I said. Saying Roddick of Wim 04 final or Wim 09 final is weak is just plain rubbish. You mentioned Novak being taken to 5 sets by non big3 players at AO That takes out nadal of AO 12. Since comparision was a...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    This is a sad, sad post. Its like saying Federer and Bastl shattered Pete being anything special on grass. One could also say Pete was beating hapless Pioline, slow courter Courier in finals, also beating Woodforde&Voltchokov in semis. Roddick of Wim 04 and Wim 09 finals> any final version of...

    Federer 11-1 in Wimbledon finals without Djokovic?

    Simon taking an error-prone Djokovic to 5 sets in a 4th round match and Roddick taking a well playing Federer to 5 sets in the final by playing at a very high level are 2 entirely different things. If you can't get that ..... Now Wawrinka in 4th round match in AO 13 is a different thing from...

    The best without Big4?

    yes, form isn't everything. If it would have been Ferrer's 1st slam final, I agree he might have been more nervous. But he already was in RG 2013 final. Murray already had 2 5-setters with Kohly and Monfils at that RG. Kohly one went 12-10 in the 5th and Monfils match was a clowning match. After...

    The best without Big4?

    ferrer played well in the first 2 sets vs nadal. Murray was struggling like hell at that RG. and got completely obliterated by Nadal. Ferrer had beaten a better Murray at RG 12 anyways.

    The best without Big4?

    He is. But if someone starts bunching Roddick with Ferrer, I'm going to bunch Murray right with them to show a mirror.

    guy thinks Murray wins RG 14 over Ferrer. LOL. Murray struggled like hell to get to the semi and got obliterated.

    The best without Big4?

    Wrong, clueless SpewBoy USO 08 - loses to to Roddick - very nervous final, Roddick would ROFLStomp on him AO 11 - terrible final, more likely than not - loses this to Wawrinka/Berdych RG 2011 - Soderling wins this over Murray AO 2013 - could very well lose to Wawrinka RG 2014 - loses to ferrer...

    No, they just chose to ignore your BS criteria, SpewBoy.

    Sure, just as Murray is similar level as Ferrer as is Wawrinka.

    The best without Big4?

    He also won slam finals vs Sampras and Hewitt. A much better slam finals record than Murryboy whom you keep up propping. for Djokoboy's sake. Oh and remember, Safin ROFLSTomped on your guy Djokovic at Wim 08, absolutely ROFLSTomped. :-D :-D

    The best without Big4?

    Wouldn't completely rule it out, but I think he loses Wim 05 to Hewitt. AO 09 to Nadal. My point was just without Fed. But if it is without big4, then yes, AO 09 as well in a potential final vs Verdasco. also USO 08

    The best without Big4?

    Just because someone lost to the winner instead of finalist doesn't mean he was better. Thinking Schuettler over Safin in WIm 08 ?

    The best without Big4?

    Without Fed, Roddick wins Wim 03, Wim 04, USO 06, Wim 09 has decent shot at AO 07 and USO 07 - lets say he wins 1 of those so ends up with like 6 slams ends 04 also as YE#1 so yeah, him. and yes, I'm deliberately ignoring the since 2005 BS part.

    sorry, Wawrinka never beat the big 1 in any slam final or outside clay.

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

    agree re: the importance of Hamburg final, but not sure it plays that much role when evaluating level at Hamburg 08 itself.

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

    2014 Rafa over 2004 Gaudio easily - most particularly due to final. not difficult. Rafa lost one set vs Ferrer? so what? he turned up from ending stages of 2nd set till the end of that match. last 2 sets were a bagel and breadstick. Nadal also crushed Murray in the semi 2004 Coria ~ 2014...

    Toughest loss for each big 3 member every season (from first slam final season onward)

    Fed: 2003 - USO vs Nalby 1st (other 2: Montreal semi and Horna RG 1R) 2004 - RG vs Kuerten (berdych loss in Oly the 2nd one) 2005 - RG vs nadal/AO vs Safin (AO was tougher in that he was so close to wining, RG tougher in that he could've played clearly better to have a shot at winning; 3rd one...

    Yeah, I got it. I just explained the 2012 USO part for consistency.

    Deeper field =/= Tougher slam to win

    For me, USO 11 over USO 07 for the mental aspect of beating well playing fed+ prime nadal B2B only reason. I suppose you could put USO 12 over 08 for similar reason, but Djoko's struggles in the wind leading to him going 2 sets to love down dampens that clearly.

    Was 2008 Djokovic prime on HC/at USO?

    Actually fed defeated djoko in a close 3-set match in USO 07, hardly an annhilation. 2011 USO djoko was significantly better than 2010 USO djoko as was 2011 USO fed over 2010 USO fed in the respective semis. Just because scores were *somewhat* similar doesn't mean similar level. Djoko of USO 10...

    Was 2008 Djokovic prime on HC/at USO?

    it is. But you missed that Djokovic's returned Roddick's serve really well in that USO 08 QF. Kind of important here in this comparision no? Gotta go with USO 08 QF Djokovic here. Actually the problem was Djokovic committed a lot of UEs in shorter points in that USO 13 final (particularly in...
