Djokovic has vultured the most in weak era - the weakest era of open era - 2015 to current. Nadal the 2nd most.
2004, 2005, 2007 were all pretty good years. Only 2006 was on the level of 2015(&2010). 2016-current has been worse than 2015.
your post is an utter joke.
Roddick is the GOAT lol

You're a sore loser to sit and make a gif out of the match when Nole isn't even playing. Have fun with your doritos and computer in your mom's basement.
I think he’s pointing out that point lost him the second set. That’s a shot Federer usually makes 9 out of 10 times.

Yeah I'm not that disappointed honestly. Aside from the bagel which was pretty bad, these are the kinds of losses we should be getting used to from now on. For a lot of players, this stuff happens in their early 30's.
The 2nd set hurt more thsn the bagel anyway.

Why stop at 2018? It hasn't stopped being weak.
True, but the last few years have been a little bit of an improvements, I'd say. But I get our point. There's no player from the younger generation who is as good as the Big 3 and Big 3 could have dominated for a ridiculous amount of time.

if federer was the same age, he would never ever of been even in the discussion of GOAT, he would be that 3rd guy. Federers greatest accomplishment is being born before djokovic and nadal
if their primes co-incided, federer would have the edge at 3/4 slams vs both Nadal and Djokovic.
Especially Djokovic has been ultra ultra lucky with old Federer. else he barely went 3-2 at his peak in slams vs past his prime fed (11-12).

Me looking for the abuse Fed Fans directed at Med:

It's hilarious, the dude will make up phantom posts of Fed fans ripping on Med in his mind just so he can excuse/justify his own dirt throwing.

Like it's fine you can't stand xy player, it's sports. Just be honest with yourself FFS.

That's the most ridiculous claim I've heard all year. So, why was Djokovic pushed to the brink of defeat at Wimbledon 2019 by a player 6 years older and close to 40? Why hasn't Nadal been able to beat the old guy outside of clay in the last 6 years? If Federer was 5-6 years younger than Djokovic and Nadal, he would've been dominating them now.

Of course not - the golden gen of Nishi-Rao-Dimitrov are :-D :-D :-D
and then Med, Tsip, Zver in slams till now from 2018-2021 are also the GOATS :-D:-D:-D:-D

Djokovic ultra-lucky with weakest era of all time (15-current)

Go and watch some tennis before 11 before embarassing yourself like this :)

congratz to Hurakz, but Djoko will eat him alive in the Final. Not tennis wise but mentally Djoko will show him what it means to grow up with Wolves.

If I was Hurkacz I would throw one game just out of respect for Fed and what he's meant to the game...

... but then again I'm a Fed fan boy.

I hope he at least doesn't celebrate when he wins.

It's the end of an era guys. I love you Fed.
Lol, you really are fan boy...
Not to celebrate first slam SF? Out of respect? Should he apologize at the net, and cry in interview?
 
Tough loss. I definitely wasn't expecting Fed to go down in straight sets. Knew it was over when he lost the tiebreaker.

QF is a pretty good result considering his lack of play before this, and I think he played better in some of the earlier rounds.

I'm anxious to know what he will do now. Finish the year, announce his retirement, and take a farewell lap next year?

People use this excuse everytime and i am fed fan but i don’t use it. Federer had plenty of times to beat novak in matches but failed to do. You can’t let him off the hook for those matches in the us open in 2010 and 2011. The 2015 US Open and Wimbledon 2019.

Listen, that's how a true champion goes out in my opinion. You don't go out on top like Borg (who I despise for doing that). You go out getting your ass kicked by the up-and-comers. I remember when Sampras got his ass kicked by Federer. I remember when Agassi got crushed by Benjamin Becker. McEnroe... Connors... all of them.

When the ship is done sailing, you crash that damned thing onto the rocks and go down with it.

I respect that Federer did it. I hated that he pulled out of the French Open and thought it was wrong... but this is the right way for him to go out. Just like the greats before him.
Honestly, Connors is a different story. He got his @$$ kicked by the up-and-comers... and then stuck around another 15 years.

There's no way in hell fed loses 3 of those 4 matches if he was of the same age (USO 11, USO 15, Wim 19). Federer had his lapses, but significant cause was physical difference(in turn leading to some mental difference)

But age is not an excuse for him not to do well. I don’t use age as an excuse. Mentally he sucked in those matches. It’s inexcusable and age is not an excuse. He failed in the big points.

It is a reason and a significant factor in those matches as I pointed out. Federer had his lapses, but significant cause was physical difference(in turn leading to some mental difference)

I just don’t see it that way but we shall see. Novak is likely gonna surpass Federer in slams and people will say who was greater blah blah but novak will likely have the argument because of slams but whateva. I like Federer’s game a lot more but i wish Federer had Novak’s mental toughness at times.

If you think physical aspect doesn't lead to an impact on mental game, I don't know what to say.
mental strength, Djoko better, but not by too much.
Granted 11 Djoker is probably the toughest anyone has been mentally in a year or a span of 9 months.

Djoko won only 3 slams in 3 prime years from 12-14. USO 13 final was probably the biggest mental letdown in that. Went 1-3 vs Wawa in slams in 14-16.
Gave up #1 to Murray in 16 after having a big lead. etc.
Just because Djoko has been vulturing so much in the weakest era doesn't put him as way better than fed mentally (though he is better)
