Tsits worthless like in Madrid. Somehow already stumbled into wins against Big 3 already in his career (youngest). Now has beaten all three in 2019 as well. Don't even bother watching highlights let alone replay.;) In fact the tennis is so bad right now, might be best to wait until Nadal returns to the clay next year.
Hey he won. Don't attack my lad :cool:

Tsitsipas got excited about qualifying for the "Next Gen Finals" on Twitter. Does anyone give a crap about the NextGen tournament?

Let's not get carried away. He's a young man near the start of his career. He get' s excited by everything at this point. I got excited the first time I touched a girls boob. After awhile you get used to it. Lol! His reaction doesn't make YEC any more important.
Spot on. Continental Cretin lucky to play Milan

I've always said Tsitsipas will end his career with an overwhelming winning h2h against Novak. It just a bad match up. There is nothing that Djokovic does that troubles him. A bit different when your opponent is 21 rather than 36
Now hold on.:mad: You are saying this Milan wannabe owned Federer at the Australian Open and now owns Djokovic?o_O

yup. I had a strong feeling Tsitsipas would beat Djokovic relatively comfortably even though it went 3 sets. The reason I knew this is because Felix Auger Aliassime is a much tougher match up for Tsitsipas and he finally overcame him. I always said that the Toronto 2017 match wasn't a fluke. People still want to make excuses.
 
Ok, I didn't expect that for sure. Was it about Djokovic playing bad or Tsitsipas playing well?
Both. Djokovic started leaking more errors as the match went on, but Tsits would've probably lost 3-6 6-7 if he didn't find good range on the BH and began to inject pace and hit DTL. The second set was pretty great. Djokovic lost his patience in the third set.

Let's wait until Tsits beats him in a slam first.

Tsitsipas has not even started to hit his peak yet. Lets see how Djokovic does in slams against 25/26 year old peak Tsitsipas while he himself is 35/36
All 3 of the GOATs may be retired by then, and the GOAT debate may have been somewhat resolved...

He might not need to worry about that if he does all the winning until then.
Tsitsipas has already beaten Fed at a slam. Something the likes of Raomug, Nishimug, Dimimug and the rest of the lost generation failed to do. Those players will fade in obscurity. They were the main reason the big 3 were able to dominate for so long. I expect Tsitsipas to beat him at slam level soon.

Raomug and Dimimug have beaten Fed at slam level. Although it was an injured Fed both times and it was still Fed with the lead both times LOL.

Honestly didn't think 1 break would be enough for Tsitsipas in the 3rd set. He played like a man possessed lol.

lol those were fluke wins. Took them long enough after nearly a decade? Tstispas managed what they couldn't do before his 21st birthday. Dimitrov is almost 30 now.

lol.. you are always with same agenda? Tsitsipas did beat Djokoivin Toronto last year and Nadal on clay this year. Fed in AO too.

Fast surface has got nothing to do with that.
Oh you're a surface agnostic? You think surface nature and speed make no difference to plays and outcomes?

I just woke up and saw the result. It hurts as a Djokovic fan but I’m not surprised. He is far more vulnerable to defeats by Next Gen than Fedal. I guess that’s the YE #1 gone. Congrats to Stef.

I'm shocked.

Djokovics career is over.
What is shoking? Djokovic does not care about Mickey mouse tournaments.
TsiTsipas would not have won a set had this been a slam.
Djokovic is a different animal in slams.
These results will not mean anything until these guys step up at slams.

And yeah Novak's career is not even close to being over. He will win slams for three next 3-4 years. With 2-3 slams every year. Maybe a CYGS if he is lucky.
