BRUH WHATHe just won the Laver Cup........
Birdman was Top 10 at the start of 2017 and is now off the face of the planet.He's less than 2 years from his 40th birthday and is world 3. Barring injury, of course he's still going to be automatically qualifying for draws when he turns 40.
It’s dramatically worse. He’s just hanging in rallies he should be finishing early against guys he should be beating easily. He used to have the best footwork on tour by a lot even a few years ago. Now, he’s regressed to the pack.What are you talking about?
Does he move better than 10 years ago? No.
But he still moves better then most of the young guys on tour.
His footwork is still remarkable and you're blind if you can't see it.
He lucked out not having to face SockBRUH WHAT
He beat opponents that you’d find in quarterfinals and below at masters or grand slams. Apart from a good run at Wimby it’s been a desolate stretch since Miami. And yes, a semi at RG after a cupcake draw that ended with him getting dusted is not an encouraging result.
He enjoys the game, even if he falls to just being top 20 but without injuries he could continue play. People adore him and would fill the stadiums even if he lost every single match he plays. Him still playing is more than trophies, more than legacy - its just pure joy. How many players would do what he did today against Zverev while having a bad day at the office ?! And again what is the problem that he is 38? Just appreciated him for every added year. Borg retired at 25, Sampras at 31, Agassi at 35 - people constanly said that his time is closing since 2011 - almost ten years later he is top 3 in the world .You forget a minor detail, the guy is 38 years old, buddy.
Nothing but an accelerated decline awaits him. Do you think someone who has been called the GOAT for most of his career will still hang around after he’s no longer competitive in slams or even BO3? His ego and legacy will not allow him to.
Yeah, no break necessary. Better play is what is needed. The off-season and a fresh mind and body may help for a bit. But an extended break at 38? Well, you already said what that was.You are suggesting that a 38 year-old take a break?
It's called retirement.
Fast too! After the Wimby semis, it looked like Rafa's season was about to wind down, Djokovic would have a firm grip on YE#1 and Fed would remain the slam leader. Nadal has casually and epicly become the manIt has really gone down hill for him.
Feeble attempt to outdo king of trolls @sureshs who beat you to the punch 12.5 years ago after Canas crushed fedr twice in a row at M1Ks he had won the year before.I think he needs it to recover from soul crushing loss. Just skip remaining season,take rest, spend time with family and see whether it works.
Tsitsipas... The goat saviour...Fed is a mentor of sorts to Zverev. He'll be fine. Basel will give him a boost and his weeks record looks safe for now. Tsitsipas gave him an early Christmas present. It's not all bad.
Till next slam, and Rafole win AO and RG, you will sing another song, the one about lost Lost Gen...Medvedev is Djokovic boogey man. Hell, Next Gen is the Boogeyman. The party is over, son. It was a good run.
Medvedev is the real deal.Till next slam, and Rafole win AO and RG, you will sing another song, the one about lost Lost Gen...
Remember Kachanov and Zverev from this time ladt year? You will never learn
Fixed.Getting wildcards into
every draw ranked 250any tournament in the world? At 38 he's serving to win W ! At 40 he'll still be the number one draw in tennis. He's barely in top 20 form at 38
His "garbage movement" has him serving to win W 3 months ago and his "garbage movement" keeps him better than 99% of the tour.
To be fair, Zverev already showed a few times that he can suddenly up his game. This is what happened in WTF 2018 for example. If one told me after his RR match against Djokovic that Zverev is going to win the title beating Djokovic in the final I would never believe that.Uhhh, yeah? This is 2019 Zverev who had no top 10 wins before facing Fed.
