    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    MP #1: Federer kicks a second serve out wide, which Djokovic manages to return straight at him. He then stabs a FH out wide. I think this was just a matter of luck with Djok’s return going so close to him. And even if the next shot went to plan and hit the line, it was anyone’s point if that...

    Novak will finally get the true adoration he wants on Sunday..

    ... by losing to Fed in a close match. I’m half joking. But not really. This is where Djokovic shakes his “bad guy” of the top 3 image. He loses in 4 or a relatively easy 5 sets (last set blowout) with a smile on his face and praises Roger. The unfiltered and over zealous Federer fanatics...

    Fed/Rafa Fans Need Some Perspective On 2017

    There's gonna be a lot of bashing either way on here after tonight. But both Roger and Rafa fans need to look at it this way... 12 months ago Federer led the GS title count by 3 slams, tonight Federer will lead the GS title count by 3 slams. There is no change... except that in between that...

    If the Tennis Gods could grant Fed one last wish what would he go for?

    So 2017 has been a ridiculous victory lap for Federer and has given him his biggest goal alongside a very sweet personal side mission you'd imagine, i.e.: -Winning Wimbledon -Beating Nadal in a grand slam final and multiple times in a row. If Federer has decided (hopefully not) that he will...

    Federer/Nadal/Djokovic Slam Exits by Round - And the Mysterious 666

    Here are Fed, Djok and Rafa's number of grand slam exits by round since their first major win respectively. Curiously all 3 have lost 6 quarter finals apiece in those time frames for those fans of irrelevant stats. I've grouped rounds 1-4 together as it was the easiest way, lazy I know. And I...

    The Ultimate H2H IS GS Titles, Simple As That

    I see some Nadal fans still trying to push the H2H matchup dominance to gain some comfort after Fed consolidating his GOAT status 3 weeks ago. It took them a week or 2 but they're back trying to find some angles to work on. In a sport like boxing, match ups are mark in time competitions where...

    Is A Wimbledon/USO Title, Beating Djokovic, The Cherry On Top?

    Is this the only thing left for Federer to do to enhance his legacy? Winning one of them beating Murray, Nadal et al on the way would be satisfying but would only consolidate today's win. So if there's any way for him to actually reach another level, is that the only only one? Beating Nadal...

    Pat Rafter: "Sometimes having a two-day break (like Federer has) is not great"

    "Sometimes having a two-day break (like Federer has) is not great either. You're sort of losing momentum.” - Rafter Is this a factor? I always felt that in 2009, although it can of course be exhausting, the fact the Rafa was in a massive war into the early hours of the day before may have...

    How Can People Try To Define Fed's Legacy On His Performances At This Stage Of His Career?

    I have seen some nonsense in the past day or so on here. Federer's race has long been run, this is his 5th victory lap. Judging him in GOAT terms now is the same as judging Ali against Larry Holmes, Leonard against Camacho or MJ's last comeback. Absolute lunacy. Getting to the final alone has...
