Sad to see him go out the way he did, but at the beginning of the tournament I wasn't even pencilling him into the quarters, so it was better than I expected. Definitely started getting my hopes up he might get all the way to the final after Med and Zed dropped, but Hurkacz had other plans. Good win for the Pole. Bet he'll get a few questions in the press conference this go-round.

Funniest thing I’ve ever read. Federer has come out as a 3-1 (-300) favorite, giving little respect to Hurkacz Bc Vegas knows he’s WEAK. Yet you favor Hurkacz. Hysterical, really
Fair enough. Well I will end this by saying he’s highly delusional and this is an easy straight sets win for Federer with absolutely no sign of trouble

Make no mistake. Beating Federer at Wimbledon mean something. Hurkacz will have great Wimbledon this year and great career.
Not this version of Federer. Any decent player who could keep the ball in would have beaten Federer today. He just didn't have any rhythm with his ground strokes and there was nothing he could do other than keep serving and holding and hoping to sneak out a win in TBs.

Ok so i wasn't crazy thinking Hurkacz was the favorite still a bagel is shocking.
Did Fed shank every ball or did HH played well ? Both ?

Whelp, everybody I talked to laughed and saw this as an easy straight sets win for Federer. They, AND ME, were both very wrong. Father Time crushed him today

Bummer. Fed gets bagelled on centre Court in a straight set loss , didn't see that coming.
Congrats to HH tho. Guy did his job today. Hopefully see him on Sunday.

Deluded about what? The guy’s 34 years old . Tell me when Novak will start to lose it?
Probably in about 2 yrs. Possibly before, who know? One day he just won’t be able to hit passing shots on a full stretch. He’ll make more UE’s. Movement will lag. It 100% will happen. And I promise you when it does, you’ll find it super annoying if Fed & Rafa fans decide to troll every single Novak match thread.

So much ignored content :-D :-D :-D

Could this be HH's Cilic '14 moment? Crazy stuff.
Honestly, it's impossible to judge how good HH's form is now based on this one match. All he had to do was to make Rogi play one more shot to make him commit errors. Fed didn't have any groundies at all today. Credit to HH though for holding his nerves and executing his game plan perfectly.

I don’t see it. He should be losing it right now. His game has gotten efficient. His serve has gotten better and better and his mental strength is what puts him over the edge. We shall see.

A loss that hurts for Fed, but I think he realized today he wasn't in enough shape or form to give himself a chance for the title. This was the worst Fed I've seen in a very long time today. Looked like he gave up. I hope he can still find motivation to continue, cause if he can be injury free and train properly and get himself matches I see one more slam in him and other nice trophies for him. He has that 109 titles record in sight too. He still made it to final 8 with barely any prep. He has the tools still and plenty of things to fight for.

But he did more. Way more. If you rewatch (which I don't recommend), you'll see he hit some blinders. It's okay to be upset, but why treat HH unfairly.

Djokovic hasn't played well in his last 3 matches so he is not goating at least not like he did against Anderson. These guys are playing a high enough level to trouble him especially if he plays like he did today.
No one is playing well, it's 2021 lol. But Djokovic is too solid and will be able to outclutch everyone.

Again, just to be clear, I have no problem with HH doing his job beating an old, very off Fed. Just pissed about the bagel.

I'd rather say lack of match practice deprived him today. I saw a lot of positive signs on his physical conditions. Unless he got injured again, he will come back strong and be a genuine contender at any tournaments again after competing in 5-6 tournaments.

He is not losing to anyone here, come on.

Everything about that match was irritating. He made some of the silliest UEs you will see . He gave the match away when he blew that second set. That was his set and he gave it away on a silver platter . I have seen those mental breakdowns by Federer often too many times.

damn people felt some type of way about my comment, he can do what he pleases, im allowed to still feel some type of way. man people are so annoying here
You are entitled to feel whatever. When you put it out on a public forum, you are bound to get responses. If that makes me "annoying", so be it.
