He had plenty of those points today where he scrambled to remain in the point and won when Brooksby finally sailed one. That's fine.

But despite scrambling in this point, he was never in it. He didn't win it with defense. Brooksby was in control for 100% of that point and missed the easiest shot possible. That's not Novak forcing the issue. Brooksby should make that shot 10/10 times.
Your posts on this Novak's celebration sounds like someone stole you account... You are objective poster as I see you, but this time it's so obvious Novak celebrated his phenomenal defense which brought him a point...

I asked nicely for you not to respond. Obviously, your reading comprehension is poor.

I told you I bow to your superior logic. You win. Please don’t make me report you for stalking me, OK? Do you understand?
Yes,I mean no. If my logic is superior, there is no need for you to reply to every message, there is one ignore button,no?

What a garbage match. This whole tournament has been such a let down. Watching Novak just mop up the slams after his competitors are well past their prime in broken bodies. Looks like robot tennis is all we have left for the foreseeable future.
It is not Novak's fault that he is so much fitter than Rafa at similar age or that Roger choked away those slam finals against him. Whether he wins this event or not (i think it is still a huge ask given age, pressure he is under and fact that Medevedev and Zverev will both be fresher should they meet), Novak in many people's eyes has already surpassed the other big two.

If he was to win this then there really isn't much of a debate left.

I watched Novak's match in person, against Nishikori, (thanks for arrival advice ttw!) I did not watch last night's match.

I watched Novak's match in person, against Nishikori, (thanks for arrival advice ttw!) I did not watch last night's match. What I can tell you, is that it was not boring at all. If anything, Kei never went to the ent, Novak did a few times and was mostly successful at the end. Also, unless you are there in person, you don't know what it is really like. First set Kei hitting like a maniac. Novak just returning with, what seems to be no power or not much at all. Not really going for that much, but still, Kei barely takes the set in a tie break. Novak then ramps it up. Starts hitting strong and deeper, and moves closer in the court. And the serve?Many double faults in that match, but when Novak wins the game just on his serve? Magnificent.
I am not sure why you think it is robot tennis at all?

I hope Brooksby jumped on a plane and landed in Roddick's back yard to work on the serve. Imagine Brooksby with Roiddick's serve...

Nole says america has a bright future in tennis. LOL Pandering to the crowd. We have had no future in 20 years. A kid that can't serve or play more than a set is no future for us
it's looking better than it has in a while. in korda and brooksby we have something we haven't seen in a while...americans with backhands. plus opelka of course.

In fairness he is getting more crowd support than years before ...
even last night I was surprised how much support he had v an American opponent..

Was watching Brooksby's press conf and he said he can beat anyone, really? well Rafa will be waiting for him in the FO next year for him. What is wrong with the next gen barely making a QF and giving out these almost stupid claims. IF this match had gone 5 sets and if he had match points and lost it could understand but seriously

It’s the attitude every serious player should have. If you go into a match planning to lose you’ll likely accomplish that plan. The day a player decides he can’t win is the day he should retire

I like your signature.

I am not saying planning to lose, but when you cannot even hang with someone for 3 sets toe to toe you cannot state what he stated.
