If Schwartzman wins...

Mad respect for Diego

But, Diego is getting dominated.

He is only serving 100mph/80mph on 1st/2nd.
Barely gonna be holding.

Nadal is hitting heavy, and forcing Diego to go for too much from the baseline.
Plus, Diego is making some UEs.

Diego has a monster BH
Mad respect for Diego
But, Diego would have to play perfectly to take a set.

does it make you feel better to post such stuff about someone who cracked the top 20?
now go take a look at your bank account and at his career prize money and think again who shall go compete in the kid's event.
Maybe he has "house in Spain".

In a matter of 2 days, we went from "The Slam race is between Federer and Djokovic now" to "Nadal is the last man standing against the next generations."
Federer has been exposed as the overrated champion i always said he was. USO was a must win for him and yet again he failed.

Glad he had a good run, shorter boys shouldn’t be put off taking up tennis.
So correct it is a great sport for short guys who can do the work. There really is no disadvantage against most players if you are as dedicated as similar sized competitors.

Only 7 though when Nadal and Djokovic peaked
one can only play and win or lose to the opponent on the other side of the net.
Is it Nadal's fault that both Djokovic and Federer lost before the final?
Or should Nadal be disqualified now, and let's watch at Berretini vs Medvedev / Dimitrov final?

It's hard to be overrated when you've won 20 Slams.
Federer overall is rated correctly.

But that's because there are a number of his fanatics who proclaim him as the best sportsperson - nay, best human being to have ever walked the planet. These people are countered by those who think he'd have been lucky to win a single slam if he was the same age as Nadal and Djokovic. So it all evens out in the end. He's rated correctly as GOAT for the time being.

absolutely correct man..........world male average height = <1.7m n shortman's the role model to encourage as many kids of different sz as possible to play tennis especially nowadays less n less kids picking up rkts.

tall guys might only have bit advantage on serving nothing else if lucky not a disadvantage..............i know dat many 6' guys like me can be blown off court 6-0 x2 by some 5' 13yo tourers.

tennis' not basketball, man:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D..................

It was federer fans who started the disrespectful GOAT thing. As u allude to...comparing eras is hard and pointless.
