    If 2003-2007/08 a weak era then what is 2014/15-2019?

    I'd probably say Brian Teacher and Mark Edmondson were worse players. Johansson won a masters title and while the masters series as it is now didn't exist back then all the other titles those two won were small in comparison - the Canadian masters Johansson won has a lot of history.

    Nah no way. You could argue the weakest since the AO became a proper major though.

    As it’s the off season what’s the craziest.............

    Yeah I should have said something in the chat, could have brought my racket an all. Was only over there for a weak. Girlfriend was a bridesmaid at a wedding.

    Next Gen are horrible in Slams

    I don't see Del Potro and Cilic as Lost Gen, replace them with Dimitrov?

    As it’s the off season what’s the craziest.............

    Not too crazy but I watched some of the Paris Masters this year on a plane from Dubai to Hong Kong.

    Has 2019 really been a strong year?

    I went with decent. A strong second tier of players developed which led to good matches in BO3 but we still had the Big 3 dominating the slams despite their clear decline.

    What were the opinions on Federer after he won 04 us open title ?

    Hewitt came back strong in 2005, then broke himself tbh.

    thinking about now , 06 rome final was the fed 's biggest lose ever

    This loss is barely a footnote on Federer's legacy. No loss in a masters can compare to a slam final loss and often times even a SF loss.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Bit sad for Dom but hopefully this spurs Tsits on to even bigger things.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Thiem about to start applying some scoreboard pressure.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Watching I think he took something off his groundies after set 1 and ended up playing more defence. Might be that Nadal took more time away from him but hard to tell.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Felt like he went away a bit against Nadal, but apparently he wasn't giving it 100% - or so he says :laughing:

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Those are my favourite shots.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Yeah I thought Thiem's sightly higher firepower would win out but he doesn't have that same focus and intensity of the Djokerer matches.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Thiem really upped the rpm on his backhand that set, maybe conserving energy by not bombing every shot.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Lol let it out man. Nadal the moral winner.

    What generation is Thiem part of?

    Dimitrov (Raonic too) have done pretty well off the court so that's something at least...

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Thiem holding his serve a couple of times is very good for the third set. Breaks the momentum at bit.

    What generation is Thiem part of?

    Mate they're going to be the first slamless gen they'd take anyone lol.

    What generation is Thiem part of?

    Feel like Thiem doesn't belong to either group . Perhaps it's funnier to call him a #NextGenner just to rob the LostGen of their "best player".

    What generation is Thiem part of?

    Kei is 30? o_O Time flies.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    Yeah I'm the same. Warming to him but he is a bit of a tit but I suppose I like NK regardless of his ways...

    God Mode final of Big 3

    I think he definitely was at a disadvantage on the slower courts from around 2012, I'd say he was old in 2014.

    WTF Final: [6] Tsitsipas vs. [5] Thiem

    #TeamThiem for this one, wouldn't mind Tsits though. Laaaaate challenge.

    Ridicolous stat that may be never repeated

    Fed skipped many masters in his best seasons.

    2019 WTF 1/2 Final:Roger Federer vs. Stefanos Tistsipas

    I'm warming to Tsits personality wise. Not too bothered about the loss but the manner of it was disgusting lol.

    Awful from Fed. Would d be happy if Tsits or Thiem win the thing now.

    Fed if you're going to run around your backhand don't hit it down the middle...ffs

    why the hell at 2008 , AO court change from rebound ace >> Plexicushion ?

    Yeah I'm aware that in 2000 it played pretty quick, was thinking mostly about Fed's winning years. Very high bounce and medium slow seems fair.
