these players are not anyone. they are top ten last time i checked. stretching it a lot on this topic. guys can’t admit a 39 year old is number three in the world playing a half schedule??
Millman? Top 10? Last I checked his highest ranking was 33, and he was ranked much lower than that when he played Fed.

Should have lost to him again this year.

And he is NOT number 3 in the world.

What has being outplayed got to do with Fed shanking the FH at 5-3 TB in the 1st set?? LOL. There were many of those. Quit the "was being outplayed" nonsense. Fed did hang out with Djoko till the very end. Just did not close out some very important points. Some of those misses were just by inches, and thats because he was outplayed?? You are really something.

Djoko "outplayed" Fed at AO20 SF and not at Wimb19 F.
Agree with this one but when it came to the critical points, Djokovic brought his best so @MeatTornado is also right :)

I think any Fed fan should be happy with what they have with Fed right now. Will he likely win another slam? No.

But he will likely have chances to win another slam and that is all you can ask for.

Just don't want anymore championship points blown that result in a tie.

The important thing for Fed is to still have the "chance" to win slams, and I think he has a few more slams where I will feel that way.
So long as the top 3 can give us matches like the final of Wimbledon '19, I don't care who wins :)

that fed/delpotro match, jmdp 1st serve % point win went down with each set,

seemed a bit rare to me, despite that and being visible tired, score was 3-3(?) in 5th set.

It's behind a paywall, but the article is criticizing the Fed interview for showing his ON shoes every .02 seconds. Tempest in a teapot. He reached billionaire status in part by being incredibly savvy about marketing.

I don't get it. Celebrities do interviews with the purpose of promoting whatever they're selling all the time. Was ON never brought up in the interview so the set with the logo and shoe in the background was just awkwardly looming over them? If he did an interview with a bunch of his rackets on the wall would that be considered unauthorized publicity for Wilson?
 
What better day to put an end to my self imposed tennis hiatus than the man's birthday. Happy birthday Roger!!!! As a player, you not just gave your indomitable style and grace to enjoy and savor but also made me a fan of this wonderful sport for years to come. I will probably be one of the many who will continue to watch the game after the man's retired. And this I believe is his greatest achievement.
