Federer News

Pretty tough draw for Federer with Cilic-Goffin-Zverev-Thiem being possible opponents from R2-SF respectively. Will be interesting to see how he measures up to the challenge.

I like that draw. He will have to come out focused and prepared for a tough week. He needs some big wins. Plus, I think the only one that makes me nervous is thiem, and I bet he won't even be there.

I agree. Would love to see the pumped up Federer from the Laver Cup. That would be something. An indoor court makes Federer a solid favourite against Thiem. Federer played him so close on courts that suit the latter so should be fairly straightforward if they are to meet I feel. I am more concerned of Zverev's resurgence.

Cilic is not the player that he used to be from 2017 first half of 2018. He has been in steep decline. Goffin doesn't have the tools to hurt Federer even at his declined level, unless Federer is completely off his game. The challenge starts with Zverev, but Federer knows how to exploit his movement. Thiem will be a tough cookie for sure.

:cool:
 
What if Fed plays djoker in the final and serves it out? Would that make you more upset about WC or feel better?

What if Fed just aces him and freaks out and breaks his racquet?

:sick:
 
Let's just hope fed gets to the final. I think even a loss to djoker in the finals is a good sign, unless he gets destroyed. Opportunities... that is all we can expect. Keep getting opportunities and belief will overcome it again.
Yup. There is also always the chance that Djoker won't be in the final, he hasn't been so solid this year outside of slams. Then again Fed is 38 and can lose on any day so we'll see.

Impossible to make me feel more upset about WC or make me feel better about it tbh.
Slam final against Djokovic. Down two sets. Saves two championship points at 4-5 15-40. Wins the third set. Saves two championship points at 5-3 40-15 in the fourth set. Wins the fourth set. Saves two championship points at 8-7 40-15 and comes back to win the match.

:giggle:

Why put scenarios like this in my head. Now I will let my mind wander. At this point, any slam, period, will be enough for me to move on from it.
