Tell me we are not watching crap tennis

This is ridiculous.

Tsits is supposed to be the next great? Yeah right.

Never want to hear how Fed had it easy.

Djoker has it as easy as it gets.

Trash tennis being played. No All Time Greats present except for Djoker.

Djoker is two or three tiers above what we are seeing.

Tennis is in deep deep trouble.

Tsistsi should learn from Rogie on how to close matches..oh wait...

Salty thread..!!!!


Dont know if you watched it or not, It was a very high quality match except for last 0.5 sets. Had everything..including the rally of the tournament when Coric returned a smash and what followed.

Consistency seems to be the problem--not just in hitting but maintaining a level of intensity that doesn't let opponents back in. Keeping that pressure after earning a break.

Some great points with TseTse vs. Borna. But then some off the wall stuff.
Same thing with Shapo and Fritz. Some great points, great shot making, but then some drops in level that lets the other guy back in.

What good is it if it gets choked away and opens up the draw. Coric isn't beating Djokovic. Never took a set off Djokovic in 3 meetings.

The only consistently great thing was Tsitsipas serving until he started frocking up. The rest was up and down.

People are crying for nothing, a next gen won and the match was good.
Coric is and has always been journeyman-tier. He's not an elite, just a dangerous floater. Tsitsipas on the other hand is defending ATP finals champ and has the most complete game of these NextGens, but then he goes and ruins his entire career with a choke like that.
This was seriously Coria RG04-tier choking. So many opportunities every stage of the match, and he wasted one after another after another.

nothing new then

we are cursed to witness these chokes until the next big Fedalovic type player rises up, which might be a damn long time

Not with that backhand and those shanks. I guess he wants to be like Federer even in this aspect, but at least Fed had an excelent slice that compensated.

They might be able to challenge Sampras-Agassi gen (who weren't nearly as consistent as Fedalovic are), but just not Fedalovic level

It was a great match. Why everything has to be about Djokovic? Even OP's thread is pure agenda.

He could just write 'OMG! No Tsitisipas to save from Djokovic' than writing 'crap tennis being played'.

In the end, for a match with grueling rallies

Tsitispas: W/UE: 59/42
Coric: W/UE: 53/50


At least appreciate their effort in producing a high quality match. OP is trying to show his concern for high quality tennis while loathing the same. LOL.

There is a great comedy value in claims that Djokovic has/had it easy. If you take time machine and put Tonight's Tsistipas in 2005, the question is whether he would lose a match for the season; players playing then had obvious technical faults. Coric vs Tsitsipas was an extraordinary match; the level of play in this USO is incredible.

Fast grass matches had the best W-UE ratios but apparently it's disgusting servebotting, no? Not how it works pal...

The +17 guy is supposed to beat the +3 guy. I didn't see the whole match I'll admit that. I saw one of the worst chokes ever though. It's the same story over and over again. There's no one consistent enough to get it done. That's a fact.

Excellent post.

This is the WEAKEST ERA in 35 years of watching tennis. These next gen make Roddick, Hewitt, Safin look like GODS.

If someone EVER tells me that Fed won slams in a WEAK ERA -- I will SCREAM.

If Fed had a weak era, what is this exactly? Is this even an era?

It was actually high quality tennis but Tsits couldn't close it out when it was on his racket. This is the youngest USO in in 12 years though and the big 3 is going to eventually become the big 2 and then the big 1 as they all fade away. I don't see how tennis is in trouble since Djokovic can't win everything, and he has a lot more mileage than these guys.

The saddest part is, Djoker is visibly past his peak and yet he is still mopping the field.
Just hand him his fourth USO title already.
I really wish he completed the trifecta and sat out like Fedal lol. Ugh :p I guess it's the equivalent of putting crispy wings in front of me, he can't help himself ;)

We should have challengers tournaments, where Novak just plays the final and the rest of the field fights for 2nd place.
That is the gulf in talent.

Are we though? Did every generation have a 18-Slam winner?
We should at least be seeing some Mac/Edberg tier ATG's emerging now, but one of those prospects just committed career suicide today.
gotta be honest, didnt even catch the Tsits match

how bad was it?

how many MPs missed?
