    Thread bump...at least 5 titles at four of the five slams!

    @sureshs , please tell us again about your feeling the guy with the elegant strokes won't win and how that feeling worked out!

    GOAT thread has competition now from 60's Weed's "Federer needs to just forfeit this match".

    Long live Forfeiterer!

    If you like but the elite draw and RR format make it more a Sewretchian club exho.:p:D It will be more meaningful this year if fedr can use it to nail down YE# 1 to tie 60's Weed's idol GOATpras. Oh the joy if that happens!:eek:

    Definitely a top 3 thread on TTW. The other two are "Maxi vs Hammer" and "Poor Murray.got destroyed.once more.LOL".

    Disagree about that flame war between SelfieMax and Hummer...just a lot of hate and nothing about tennis.

    If these stats don't show that Federer is trolling OP then I don't know what will...

    1. This thread:

    Before 2009, Federer at Cincy:
    • 2 QFs in 8 attempts / 2 titles
    • Match record: 14-6 (70%)
    • Record vs opp. ranked >20: 10-5 (67%)
    • 31/49 (63%) in sets
    After 2009, Federer at Cincy:
    • 7 QFs in 7 attempts / 5 titles
    • Match record: 28-2 (93%)
    • Record vs opp. ranked >20: 13-0 (100%)
    • 55-10 (85%) in sets


    2. Federer will never beat Murray thread:

    Before the thread:
    • 2-5 win loss record (40%)
    • 5-10 (33%) in sets
    After the thread:
    • 12-6 win loss record (67%)
    • 31-17 (65%) in sets
    • Murray hasn't won in 4 years, taken a set in 3 years or broken Fred's serve in 2.5 years

    How could you leave out @Cesc Fabregas immortal, "It's a digrace, it's an scandal, it's a outrage" thread?!

    I also like the "Wawrinka looks like retirement" thread, and the "What is Nishikori, like 2-5000 against the top guys" thread as well. :D

    These stats confirm Sewretch as BLOAT...Biggest Laughingstock Of All Time!:p:D

    If only fedr had won those two 5th sets and the CYGS, 2009 would have been the Year of the GOAT/BLOAT and @FedFosterWallace 's question of "When Was Peak TTW?" would have had a definitive answer!:p:D

    I didn't even know that they deleted it! I guess a moderator felt sorry for good old man, the result of the AO final was too much for him.

    @Cesc Fabregas is underrated.

    He was so dominant at his peak with this: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/robin-soderling.298442/ and that one: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/del-potro-is-overated.242262/ just as a couple of exemples.

    If you like that, review "Nadal Decline Poetry!" It's locked but you can read all six pages. Great stuff, especially by @Colin .
