    Novak's mom ‘suffers’ because of Fed and Rafa supporters

    No idea. It is one of my favorite celebrations. I always considered such celebrations as a compliment when I lost some important matches. It showed how much it meant to my opponent and how tough was for him to beat me.

    Djokovic Wimbledon 2011 vs 2019

    I would go for W2019 due to opposition he played. In 2019 Djokovic played on grass the best version of Federer ever who just beat Nadal.

    Novak's mom ‘suffers’ because of Fed and Rafa supporters

    I thank Beatlesfan for sharing this article with us. The story is as follows: Federer was religious (tennis) experience. Unbeatable superior (human/God) being. Nadal challenged this notion, but he was viewed as an exception confirming the rule and there were many excuses why these loses were...

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    Thanks You appreciate that establishing and comparing absolute strengths of fields ~15 years apart is not a trivial task and it is something that is yet to be properly done. On the other hand, statement of a player about his own level of play carries significant weight that can't be rejected...

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    As we are looking for absolute playing level (not relative level in relation to the field), stats can be used only if the field he played was equally strong. If not, that would be like comparing Fulham's results in Championship and Premiership. What method can you use to assess absolute...

    I commend your honesty. It is your word against Federer's about Federer.

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    He is facing peak Federer now, according to Federer. According to you, Nadal (possibly) now plays better than ever, but weak Federer is a strong competitor while in the past he played peak Federer who he demolished.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    During US open 2018 Djokovic said that he played as well as ever and also said that the best hard court version of Federer he played against was 2015USO. Regarding Nadal, I remember that he said in 2015 that he was not as good as before.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    If a player defined when was his best, for me it is the end of the story. No discussion.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    Question: In 2003 you won your first title in Dubai. How much chances would the Federer of 2003 have against the Federer of today? Answer from Federer: Not many chances I believe. The game has extremely changed. It is more dynamic, faster and has become somewhat ruthless. The players are more...

    Will Roger Federer recover mentally when he lost in the Wimbledon final 2019 against Novak Djokovic?

    You are right, these are 2 major possibilities. In my opinion competition significantly improved and although Federer plays better his results are worse. This is what I believe to be the case. That Federer plays better I believe based on his statements and my personal assessment. However, this...

    Will Roger Federer recover mentally when he lost in the Wimbledon final 2019 against Novak Djokovic?

    For this to be suitable you need to have accurate assessment of the whole field. If not, this would be like comparing Fulham's results in Championship and Premiership. You are looking for absolute level of performance, not for level of performance in relation to the field. Only person trying to...

    Will Roger Federer recover mentally when he lost in the Wimbledon final 2019 against Novak Djokovic?

    Do you think that you should tell Federer when was his best? Do you think that your assessment of his play is better than his? Do you think that he can't judge whether he played better in his win against Baghdatis in AO final or in his loss against Djokovic 2019W.

    Will Roger Federer recover mentally when he lost in the Wimbledon final 2019 against Novak Djokovic?

    In tennis there is element of your performance and element of your opponents performance. These two elements together determine your inside feeling during the game. A fan can see performance and outcome of performance, but does not have inner feeling of the player. Player is the only one who...

    Some Peak Fed Gems

    Good to see people here that know tennis. In 2005 tennis players used to have so many technical problems, you could see issues with main strokes. Now, players are technically so much better. I agree with you here. However, they are so much better than anything else at that time.

    You are spot on here. If you would transport Zverev/Medvedev/Tsitsipas in 2005 they would "massacre" everyone.

    Will Roger Federer recover mentally when he lost in the Wimbledon final 2019 against Novak Djokovic?

    It is much worse than criticism, it is disrespectful when considering that Federer said this: “I think I’m a better player now than when I was at 24 because I’ve practiced for another 10 years and I’ve got 10 years more experience,” Federer said. “Maybe I don’t have the confidence level that I...

    Some Peak Fed Gems

    You are too harsh to Federer here, but, in essence, you are right. I am glad that there are people who have tennis knowledge to do proper assessment of levels of play.
