Went downhill after Black Flag which was the last good AC game. Although AC Rogue was fun but not that good.
Loved Origins. Played unity way after launch and enjoyed it and am halfway through Valhalla and it's ok so far. Only ones I dislike are Syndicate and Odyssey. Black flag is the best though.

Matteo hasn't had anything to even pump his fist about in like 30 minutes now.

It was almost exactly what I said earlier about how an early break would derail the whole thing. You can bounce back from a tough fought 2nd set loss, but you can't let someone like Novak grab the momentum early because he'll just run away with it.

You can tell that 85% of the stadium are asking themselves why they spent money on this lol. My goodness this man can suck the life out of everyone :oops: going exactly to the script and people want a new movie.

The problem with these guys winning a set is they're acting like they won the match and relax or get too comfortable with their "achievement".

This is the match that I was expecting, Berrettini to clutch out a set, but Novak winning the other 3 in convincingly fashion.
Feel sorry for Matteo, but too many obvious weakness are set to be exploited easily.

Unless Berrettini bounces back, it looks like this will be another typical Djokovic US Open match: drops the first set, opponent wins 3 or 4 games combined in the next 3.

Lol Roddick would have to play out of his mind to have a chance vs Novak on HC in BO5. What's his best win? Injured Nalbandian?
frickin' Nishikori was able to beat Djokovic on HC in Bo5, and so did Murray when the wind decided to lend him a helping hand. I would give Roddick at least one win if they played several matches at the US Open over their careers because Andy had a few decent runs there (2003, 2004 besides the titanic choke, 2006, and 2007). AO Djokovic is completely out of Roddick's league, however.

Novak got this now.

It was a miracle that Berretini got through every service game in 1st set where Novak had chances. Wasn't going to happen all the time.


And those mocking me in Roddick vs Djokovic match up thread, I am telling you peak Roddick would be 50-50 with average Djokovic.

Roddick actually could rally better than Berretini and his FH was better.
Obviously, Roddick did everything better than Berr.

This form right now by Novak is enough to win the CYGS and to beat anyone.
He is unbelievable. He's torn apart Matteo. No one could ever do that.
Novak is truly the GOAT. Amazing stuff. Inspirational.

Really don't get how you can go from looking completely physically fried, drenched in sweat and disinterested in set one to pouncing on every return like a cat and resembling a human wall for the remainder of the match. Being a Djokovic fan is confusing at times.

It's weird it's like I don't even know why he started winning but he did and it seems so easy now. Like the wind has just been completely sucked out of Berrettini's sails

I'm trying so hard to see how Ultronians can actually enjoy watching this man. Ewwww. Nothing about it outside of a few winners from Matteo has been remotely entertaining.
