If these mugs let FAA win a slam, post-covid tennis results should be officially voided o:O
One probably would have said similar about Cilic before he caught fire in 2014. I mean he was no foreigner to grand feats of muggery himself. I can think of countless examples. Say what you want about FAA but he's surely the best athlete along with Alcaraz out of the younger crop of guys (by quite some margin I think), and that can get you a pretty long way. I don't think it's unrealistic for him to put one really good run together at some point. I mean he peaked higher than Medvedev in their AO QF earlier this year. The match was on his racket. Med's success in that match was almost purely dependent on FAA spraying and mugging up. If he can clean up his game there's something there, especially in this era.

Djokovic too skinny in my opinion. Fitness and game is still there but he will be muscled out of games in later stages. Dude needs to bulk up or turn into another Ferrer.

Alcaraz is my only hope for tennis. Like his game if he can put it together.

How in god's name does Djokovic get to those drop shots, year after year, match after match...

the court view shows just how far he had to travel. This is going up a notch now.
Because he has declined the least among the big 3. He is 35, but his speed and endurance are like someone who is 25.

We gonna find out soon. He did make a nice QF run at the us open. We shall see if he’s ready for the big time at the french.
QF is not equal to winning a slam, or beating Nadal or Novak at slam level.
IMO Alcaraz can only win a slam once Novak retires. If Novak is in the draw, no way Alcaraz wins the title of BO5.

No **** my point is the guy has game but he has to show it where it counts. We gonna find out soon if he’s good.
