It's ok. I don't want another yawn like the last USOAll of the Big 3 should make it far if they play decently. Tsonga and Medvedev could be tricky but they will have to be more than that to take three sets.
He better make it. Don't want another yawn like the last AO.
Even if this miracle occurs, endless posters here would claim one of the following:fed to win no.7 and no.21 by beating nadal and djokovic back to back (only in my dreams)
To be fair, 7 and 8 apply to whoever wins.Even if this miracle occurs, endless posters here would claim one of the following:
1. Nadal was injured
2. Djoker was injured (possibly on life support)
3. Fed had "preferential scheduling"
4. Unfair because Djoker played in the heat while Fed didn't
5. "Weak era"
6. ELO skewed
7. Fed on PED's "and it's like so obvious!"
8. Blah, blah, blah
Kind of like looking at the 1990 USO draw with a kid named Sampras in it. He beat Lendl, Mac and Agassi for the title. So that was an "easy draw" at that tournament. After that result, he was never an easy draw again.when Rafa had these two in his quarter at last USO his draw was cakewalk but when Federer have these two it is brutal.. Lol
I never know whether he's trolling or serious? It's gotta be trolling hard with this post.As usual Djokovic has to fight though the toughest draw. Tsonga R2? Shapo R3 and Medvedev who is playing really well in R4. An Nishikori who is coming from a title winning week? Gtfo.
The most popular and beloved tennis player in history wins slam #20 at age 36. The personification of "borefest." Surprising there was anyone in the seats to watch this hot mess.2018 tournament was a borefest whatever way you look at it.
He's in Djoker's quarter, I haven't worked out the whole draw since he's not getting past Djokovic, obviously. If you watched his match yesterday against Kohli, Fogmeister was playing like garbage and tanking ridiculously. And his new kit is beyond atrocious.Fognini's draw?
And he was challenged by the rest of the Tour for twenty minutes throughout that entire fortnight. How did he survive...The most popular and beloved tennis player in history wins slam #20 at age 36. The personification of "borefest." Surprising there was anyone in the seats to watch this hot mess.
I love it, though won't hold my breath for it. 42 consecutive GS match wins are unfathomable.
He wants CYGS. I dont think you have to worry
despite the fact that I'm still not over my fav losing yet again after having match points, If we are comparing all the slams, Wimbledon probably had the more memorable performances overall.So let's compensate and have a tournament very similar to the last Wimbledon.
I think Basil is moer likely and more dangerous than Tsitsipas for Fed in the 4th roundSo, what's notable about the draw? At first glance:
- Federer gets into the Nadal half, which I guess is positive for him based on current form.
- Semi-potential roadblock for Fed is Monfils in the third round, tho I don't think La Monf is at his best. Could easily meet Tsits in the 4th.
- Some easy early rounds for Vamos, but wouldn't be surprised if KAnderson takes him out in the quarters.
- Cilic first round vs Tomic and second round vs Rublev are potentially interesting matches, though I wouldn't bet on the upset.
- Could absolutely see Thiem in the quarters here, but Coric can be tough in the fourth round.
- Raonic vs Kyrgios opener is a blockbuster. Wawrinka or Gulbis for the winner is great as well.
- Who will trip the ZedTrain this time around? Chardy?
- Toughish draw for Novak (relatively speaking). Could get Tsonga in the 2nd, Shapo in the 3rd, Medvedev or Goffin 4th, and it sure looks like Nishikori will make the QF date. Some potentially interesting matches here.
who is this again? to be honest AO being fed's best slam so to speak only began in 2017, so not sure if it being his best hunting ground the last 4 years fits. Up until 2018 when he defended his AO, I'd say Wimbledon remained his best hunting group.I think Basil is moer likely and more dangerous than Tsitsipas for Fed in the 4th round
Thiem pulled out of his practice match this morning, not sure with what ailment. But he was bad in Doha, and I don't expect much on a fast HC, even though he's been a 4th round fixture at HC Slams foreeeeever. Coric being Coric too, so we can get a total rando from this section.
Raonic/Kyrgios almost as bad as Isner/Opelka. Totally fixed so they can prove themselves that 5th set tiebreaks are a good idea, even though I'm pretty convinced Isner and Raonic should win quite easily
Nobody knows who will protect the Zvirginity of the Australian Open. Could literally be anybody.
Tsonga is the only relatively dangerous draw for Djoko relative to the round I think. Shapovalov isn't playing well and should be an overhyped walking bye. Medvedev hasn't really made any Slam runs and goes awol for stretches in matches, so he may play him tough for like 1 set. Zverev not so much of a fast court animal as on the slow HCs.
Really really not sure what Nishikori did do wrong in a past life, cause he's getting Djokovic in like 80% of Slam QFs.
Absolutely fearing for Murray getting destroyed in R1.
Phoenix person, also known as Berd Person Reborn vs Edmund should be one of the good R1 matches I feel.
All in all, I'm pretty sure the Big 3 will all semi, the young bois are making inroads, but at this point I don't think there's enough players that I consider dangerous floaters to make me really doubt it. Add that the most vulnerable player has the easiest draw and that Australia has been Fed's best hunting ground in the last 4 years, only the Zverev quarter seems relatively open.
