Atta GOAT!

Days after the Olympics announcement, GOAT announces plans for French Open 2020.
And Paris is going nuts!

Wonder what the chasing ATGs make of this.:unsure:
Is the GOAT in for more Grand Slam glory?

Are folks loving life?! (y)
 
Federer is bringing the heavy artillery to that one, so I hope that the sand god has his clay knees in check before the final showdown. Don't want an anticlimactic VB frenzy before the anticipated takeover.

:whistle:
The expectation here would be for significant retribution.

And even if not reflected in the scoreline, 'twould certainly be apparent to all and sundry that a real measure of poetic justice has been laid down.

After all, in the twilight of superhuman glory, the inevitable comeuppance periodically manifests itself in psychic vindication. o_O:oops::giggle:(y)

And Federer may play RG 2020 but he will be eliminated before the quarterfinals.
And how far do you reckon Nadsworth is getting?

The young Goatlings are coming for him.
I know that bothers you. :)

Do you even believe what you said?
We are talking about Clay, best of 5 sets.
The last great version of Federer there was RG 2011.
At 38 years and 10 months he is not a threat anymore and even someone like you, deep down, you know it.
:D

Speaking of depth, deep down even someone like you knows who the GOAT is, no? :)

Is Fed playing in the hope that there might be some potential matches played under the roof?

I personally do not believe in that since I consider that the athlete, it is to say, a prisoner of his time, many cling to the idealization of certain characters without glimpsing that the records that seemed unbeatable, invincible, perennial will eventually be surpassed for generations to come; hence the great mistake in continuing to call, due to an obvious subjectivism, that the idols of the people, to which they clung all their lives, are the best in history.
It's not like that.
Although I admire those who defend their favorite player by cape and sword, I do not follow that kind of opinion that they consider to be free from criticism; Unfortunately, here and in many sports forums, they crush and try to eliminate those who do not follow their preferences.
It is something irrational and dangerous, I would say: foster hatred for insignificant things.

What a beautiful fake panegyric. If you truly believed in what you wrote, you wouldn't be taking cheap shots at any player for his perceived status, which is what you do mostly here on this forum, "fostering hatred for insignificant things".

:cool:

This year is already part of the past.
It does not mean anything.
What you believe or desire does not mean that it will happen.
Federer has no chance at RG.
He will only go for people to see him one last time in Parisian clay.
Anyway, he feels he can play a good role there.
His self-confidence is not taken away by anyone, that nobody doubts!
:D

a38 year old making the semi of any grand slam is worthy of ur respect troll oh and he lost to the same guy he squashed like a bug at wimbledon
He was a point away from going 5 with Nadal at Wimby. Y’all bring up his age to soften blows and exaggerate highs, then insist that he isn’t aging when retirement gets brought up.
