    Peak Hewitt > peak djokovic

    You must forget your medication! Ability wise? Quality opposition? Hewitt's peak was between the tail end of Sampras/Agassi and early rise of Federer. He had perfect opportunity to win more than 2 slams. Djokovic is competing against two of the best players of all time during their peak and/or...

    Why is Rafa's game taxing to the body but not Novak's?

    Djokovic has much more compact strokes from both sides, doesn't swing as wildly as Nadal, plus he stays closer to the baseline much more than Nadal even on clay, thus overall, his game is a lot less taxing than Nadal's, but much more taxing than Federer's.

    Who would win?

    Silly question. It depends on who plays better that day. Nothing is static.

    the best one slam winner

    Roddick. Not only he reached No. 1, but also he had one year end No. 1, which is a very exclusive club, much more so than slam winner.

    Fed secures #1 despite USO results.

    Had they done that, top guys like Federer would skip more master events. The tour has to try to find the balance between the importance of slams and supporting regular tour events. If top players were to focus exclusively on slams, they wouldn't get to play against each other that much...

    Comparing Federer and Nadal in Masters Series

    Not sure about playing on clay/grass will make huge difference to him from health point of view. Almost every year with exception of one or two, his knee problem occurred right after clay/grass season. To me, he played too much during clay season to get the ranking points - he typically played 3...

    Will they catch Fed ?

    You have an understanding problem. Federer IS serving slower today than he was at his peak. That is a fact no matter what you say. You said he is doping. I just ask why he serves slower?

    Will they catch Fed ?

    He had the best indoor season during his career last year, even better than when he was at his peak. Since then he has become much more aggressive than the last a few years. You still haven't answered what type of doping can make you serve slower and more accurate.

    Andy Murray must be thinking:

    His BH, ROS, and movement are definitely weapons against Federer, but his 1st serve is weapon when in but his 1st serve percentage has been low, and his slice doesn't bother Federer at all because Federer likes low bouce ball in general.

    Andy Murray must be thinking:

    Completely different match. Del Potro dictated most of rallies with his hard and flat shots against Federer while Federer dictates most rallies against Murray. Thus Federer's level of play against Del Potro is not necessarily indicating his level of play against different style player like Murray.

    Will they catch Fed ?

    His serve speed has definitely slowed compare to himself before, it doesn't matter what you say. He used to serve in high 120s or low 130s more frequently than he does right now as he serves mostly in low to mid 120s. Confidence is a big factor, it comes from winning more matches.

    What has happened to Djokovic's level?

    Confidence is a factor. To pull off those shots like he did last year, he needs to be really confident. He is nowhere near as confident this year as last year. In addition, both Nadal and Federer said last year, Djokovic couldn't keep that kind of level up all the time. His level dropped after...

    Will they catch Fed ?

    Even after doping according to you, his serves are slower speed wise but more accurate in placement than before. What kind of doping does that?

    Would Federer Have Reclaimed No. 1 if not for the Blue Clay?

    Keep wasting your time, and arguing Federer doesn't deserve No. 1. Federer can't sleep because you think he doesn't deserve it.

    Wimbledon 2008 final rating wouldn't be as high as it was if the match weren't delayed, and large portion of the 5-set match was played in late afternoon in US.

    Roger's decline can be very clearly explained by one thing

    It's two way street. I haven't seen Federer's so called sharp decline as you saw the last two years. As he is getting older, he is certainly is going to be slower, but he can make it up with other aspects of his games. He is too passive for long stretches in a match against big hitters, who used...

    Roger's decline can be very clearly explained by one thing

    So in your opinion, Tsonga, Berdych, Solderling hadn't improved in the last two years? The big hitters are much more consistent in a match than they used to. Just look at Tsonga, Berdych, Solderling. They are much more consistent in a match than they used to. They are still inconsistent from...

    Roger's decline can be very clearly explained by one thing

    It has more to do with other players improving than Federer's decline. Now players can put him in defensive position without giving up that advantage during a rally. The key to Federer today is he has to be more aggressive than he used to, in return, he will be less consistent. Federer has to...

    what does Berdych have to do now to qualify?

    No, in your scenerio number 1, Ferrer would still be first, Berdych second. Since 3 players are tied with 2-1 record, head to head doesn't figure into placement.

    Did Djokovic tank today?

    You can keep dreaming about he wants loss. If he didn't want to play, he could pull a Murray or just what he did at Paris Master, withddraw before the match without counting as a loss. He is so close to be one of the best seasons ever in open era, only illogical person like you think he doesn't...

    Did Djokovic tank today?

    Tank? By losing 0-2, he doesn't control his own destiny anymore in the group. If Berdych wins against Ferrer 2-0, Djokovic will be out regardless how he does against Tipsarevic. Three would be with 2-1 record: Ferrer 4-2 sets win - loss Berdych 5-3 Djokovic 4-3

    Federer-Nadal WTF Finals RR 2011

    No, Fed is going to be first in his group regardless how he does against Fish. When only two players with same record in a group, for example, 2-1, then head to head is first tie breaker, I believe.

    Date Krumm beats Stosur...LMAO

    It's not as surprising as you think. It's on super fast court in Japan, and Stosur is not mentally strong, and doesn't play as well on really fast court as on slower court. Look at Stosur 's result at last two events she just played: Toray Pan Pacific Open (4) Sep 26-Oct 2 Carpet...

    Federer: 4 consecutive 1,000/MS finals

    Only in your mind. They do play when they are not ready. It's not excuse. It just reflects in one's level of play. Roddick is still recovering from mono. His level of play just showed he was ready to compete, but not ready enough to be competitive. It's not excuse for his loss, it is just...
