He swept the field? That’s hilarious because he played the easiest weakest draw possible in a 1000.
This doesn't make sense. Fed had e 3 times GS winner on path to begin. Edmund and Hurkacz who got rid of Nishi, Shapo and Puoille, só it's a guy that knows how to play tennis.

Federer is just too inconsistent from the ground these days. It’s almost like every time he has to hit a groundstroke you’re surprised it goes over the net. Thiem on the other hand was crushing forehands at will.
That’s just how Federer is in the last 5-6 years. Like other people have said, it’s how he’s decided to play. When it’s good he’s brilliant but when he’s off he can’t time a single shot well. It drove me insane in the 2014-2016 period when he seemed to always have off days in GS finals, but now that he has won a couple again I’ve learned to accept it and take the good with the bad.
