I'm sure it's a statistical anomaly, but it's a nice little booster nonetheless.Huh are you sure? So he only lost to opponents that were ranked worse than top 20? Seems like a strange stat for someone who hasnt won an ATP tournament
I have yet to see him. Tell me more about him?can he challenge Djokovic in slams and give him some competition ?He is younger, faster, and stronger than Djokodal at this point. Once he matures they don't stand a chance. Age is about to become very relevant for Noletards.
From Montreal as well...Since I'm a French Canadian from Montreal like Felix and I've seen him play since he was a kid, but I'm also a Fed fan, a Felix vs Fed final would create a "who do I root for" issue for me. But since I'm first and foremost a tennis fan, the answer would probably be "good tennis".
what tough matchup ?fedr has a tough matchup with Anderson though....not a guarantee he gets by him. FAA has a winnable matchup with Isner.
You've got this all backwards. Anderson isn't usually a tough match up for Fed, Wimbledon collapse notwithstanding which Federer should've won anyway, and as good as FAA is playing I wouldn't call his match with Isner "winnable." That almost suggests that you think he should win, but Isner will be an incredibly tough out for Felix now that he has some momentum.fedr has a tough matchup with Anderson though....not a guarantee he gets by him.

But Felix also knows Roger. He also practiced with Kokkinakis, and tsitsipasRight but Roger is so so Smart now. He saw that Felix will soon become top 50 guys so he invited Felix to Dubai to practice with him in winter time. So now he knows all the weaknesses and breakdowns of Felix. Roger knows felix now better than felix knows himself
It's a different Roger. lest you forget his horrid match against Albot. RF almost lost to Coric last year's Masters. RF 2018+ is susceptible. But FAA still makes some teenager errors so sure RF should be the favorite.so you think he can upset Federer, one of the smartest players on tour and he is a teen player killer. Roger eats them for brunch
i say winnable because FAA appears to be really good on return of serve.You've got this all backwards.

And Even if Felix learns any theory, he isn't talented enough to implement it in practice. Learning or executing are two very different things.that is different. Felix is young and naive so he won't learn as much as Federer is learing about Felix game. Federer is old and wise so he learns a lot more about felix than vice versa
can't blame them. Felix is very exciting player. and that new Pure Aero 2019 he is using with that neon color string is insane hot lookingGuys, how many threads do there have to be created about one player?
These 3 threads literally are all named "Felix Auger-Alliasime"
There is only one true FAA-thread and that is this legendary one:
Thanks for that subtle insight that everyone would have otherwise missed. Do you coach at the ATP level ? You should consider contacting Muglos. I’m sure he’ll be looking for another Coach in a day or two.After all of these years I'm surprised to see TT posters still don't understand matchups. Nadal's left handed forehand + slow courts --> anything but the most superlative OHBH --> easy win more often than not.
Appears to be yes, but Isner will likely show us how good or bad he is on ROS in due time. And of course I'm aware of all Federer's recent losses. Does not really change my opinion that if I was handicapping the matches I would say Federer has a much greater chance of beating Anderson than FAA does Isner, and I would not say FAA has a "winnable" match against Isner because winnable sort of implies that you're favouring FAA, but I would call it 50/50 at best for FAA. If we disagree that is fine.i say winnable because FAA appears to be really good on return of serve.
also let's not act like federer didn't lose to sissypants at this year's AO. he's 37.....not the same roger we have come to know and love.
Too early to say if he can challenge Fedalovic. But his match against an in-form Coric was very impressive... most impressive performance of his I've seen yet. Unlike some of the other younger players, he doesn't have any noticeable weaknesses and his mental game is surprisingly strong. But best of all... he problem solves. He has more than just Plan A (Hit the Ball as Hard as I can from the Baseline and Hope for the Best). Of all the young players, I believe he has the most potential. But I also feel Djokovic will continue to be the favorite at slams for the foreseeable future.I have yet to see him. Tell me more about him?can he challenge Djokovic in slams and give him some competition ?
https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/22/science/ancient-dna-human-history.htmlWell, if he wins a slam/slams, he’ll be only the third male of African descent to do so...
You just dont get it
I am in agreement with this article. What I was saying, is that the overall tennis fan base would benefit from him winning. The sport needs all the help it can get, especially in the US.
