Federer was not great, but still ok until 3-6 *3-2, then he imploded and UEd away four games in a row and with them, the match.

Djokovic was subpar in the first set with many UEs and ate a healthy bagel, but picked up his game in the second, even reaching a SP in the tiebreak.

Both won an equal number of games (6). Clearly Djokovic's lows were lower (if just because they lasted six games, which is longer than four), but his highs were higher as well. So who was the worse player overall in their respective matches?

Federer was atrocious for 4 games, Djokovic for 6. Djokovic was actually good for a whole set and Federer was never really that good so Djokovic.

I've only seen highlights of the Dubai match but I can't imagine there was ever a stage in that encounter where Federer played worse than Djokovic did in the 1st set at Cinci.

The entire match is on YouTube now. While it's tough to play worse than that bagel, Federer came pretty close in the last four games of the Dubai match. It just took a few more rally shots before the unforced error came up.

Federer played worse. Djokovic played great at Cincinatti but Fed still had some post prime level lingering so the natural course of action took place first set.

Second set Fed tanked to conserve energy but still won thanks to being GOAT.

You've really taken it too far to be funny. Please tone it down, mate.
