This I just can't wrap my head around. "Thank god our Rafa lost to all these nobodies during the first week of Wimbledon since 2012, it would have been so tough to swallow if he'd lost three or four additional finals to Federer or Djokovic. The hallowed h2h might be in danger, etc."
I feel it's much better for Federer that he lost in close matches in the Wimby final to Nadal and to Djokovic (twice) than had he lost like a wimp to guys like Bastl or Darcis. Seriously...
You can thank the net--or maybe the fact that Djokovic didn't know he wasn't supposed to nosedive into it.
As to the OP, AO 2017 by a country mile. Couldn't stand the other one (too much time-wasting, it detracted from the *real* tennis, imho).
