To Fed fans who talk about weak opponents for Djokovic

2006 AO Federer wouldn't even make the final. Lol.
Ah yes, the one obvious tournament where he was hampered. Still might do it lol. Seriously. For the sake of pedantry, however, let's try post AO 06 to post AO 07 then. Inb4 'every corner' might still not be fully envisaged. Cincinatti 06 muggery! Oh noes!

Djokovic has had 5 straight weak years. Sucks for him that he got injured/lost motivation in 2017 or whatever, he may have the slam record by now.
You've been crying weak era as long as I can remember regarding Djokovic's victories. According to you, Djokovic has 10 weak era Slams. Lol. No it sucks for others that he didn't remain on his tree hugging quest.

I think Federer fans take the cake with the embarrassment when they come up with stuff like Djokovic has benefitted the most because it's just silly. Also, who is the people that said physical decline doesn't matter? Surely you need to address them with your rebuttal because I never once said that. I said being younger does not necessarily mean automatic victory and it doesn't. Also, these guys have improved certain aspects of their game as if we should ignore that just because they've declined physically. "You people" just don't like it when someone blows up your claims that 2006 Federer would own every corner of the tour today or that 30+ is decrepit and you're too far from your best to be dominant. The rest is just a lot of redirection and spinning.
Lol spoken like a true partisan. As I expected, zero self awareness. Plus everyone who doesn’t glorify Djokovic as the second coming of Christ is a secret fed fan apparently

Hampered? Why is this always the go to when he plays like s***? Lol. He just was not in the best form and played a bad tournament. It happens to all of them.

Maybe because of his ankle injury he sustained at the tail end of 05? He did generally play below par outside of just movement also so I'll concede that. How about he played unremarkably? ;) Tbh, this is small fry compared to what the VB have conjured up over the years, so I reject the 'always'. He was fairly poor at AO 18 too.
 
Are you telling me that 2012-2013 Novak could have beaten 2018 Nadal at Wimby? That's disgusting and insulting to tennis.
Obviously he could. Would favour 2012, even odds for 2013 pre-final & 2014. The '13 final performance was sickening but an outlier and the actual Nadal match occurred in the SF, if one rather compares it to the '13 SF vs Delpo the latter doesn't look bad at all.

Isn't this a pot/kettle moment? There is no secret since you are a Fed fan. Lol. Sorry if that ruffled your feathers but this has nothing to do with glorifying Djokovic. He has the trophies so he doesn't need anymore glorifying. This is about some fans distorting facts and being overtly critical of this era and his level of play to dull the shine of his victories for their own agenda.

You're insulting both my intelligence and the sport of tennis.

The reality is that each of the Big 3 has currently gulped two weak slems (Fedr AO 06/18, Nadl USO 17/19, Djovak WB 19 / AO 20), but only two of them are primed to make further use of possible weakness because the other guy is too old.

Yeah because he’s had no ATG level opponents for years.

Yeah it sucks for Fedal (Nadal more so) but also him because he was injured/unmotivated during this weak period for a good 18 months.

I still think he gets it though, unless young players step up.

He played like s*** and I never thought his ankle had much to do with it, since he had over 2 months to recover. Unremarkable does work in this case. ;)

2020 AO is probably the worst I’ve seen big 3 play but manage to win the slam in the end due to other guy missing everything. Actually add Wimbledon 2019 to that too.

Worst for Fed would be AO18.

Nadal 17/19 USO.

Of the big 3, I am a Nadal fan though Safin is my favorite player. I was an OG fed hater from like 2001 due to his man bun, tendency to cry in public, and obsession with fashion and celebrities though he’s grown on me over the years. I enjoy countertrolling Lew though which might be the source of the confusion

Your aura of self delusion is apparently impenetrable though

So basically you have grown into a Fed fan. Lol. Fair enough.

This is laughably ironic. :D

Dude is like a boil on the ass of humanity. These fed freaks might actually believe they know more about tennis than laver, bg, etc.. got to say tho the only thing they are decent at are gas lighting and projection. Fed fans are now become like the poor mentally ill homeless man you see walking around ranting and raving to himself. Cray cray. Hope fed just retires and puts them out of thier misery.
Only some. I like some of those guys so I don't want to put them in that boat but then there are some that are a lost cause. :laughing:

Do hope djokovic beats fed at least a few more times in a major tho. Just to rub it in even more. Damn i just might become blood thirsty like strong rule. Noooooo!

If we take out Djokovic then yes.
Nah, Fed beats Djokovic too. Decrepit 2020 Fed with an injury should have taken the first set in the SF and Djokovic was poor for large stretches in the final. Fed was far from his best in 2006 but still good enough to take advantage of such dismal play (y)

Maybe not, but I think his level in the first two sets of the final could have been low enough for Thiem to at least win one of them.
Easily. Just saying I'd back Fed to win, Djokovic had patches of brilliance so it's not a slam dunk by any means I'm just not going to pander to the Nole fam and their fantasies about Djokovic this year being some insurmountable force...

My life is amazing since Fed isn't my favourite tennis player.
Sad you rely on Djokovic to bring you joy.

Wow this really is insane.

Also Laver recently said Fed will always be GOAT.

Well it was wrong however i was refering to hard courts and he was not near his best game off clay in 2008. Also with his 2008 hard court game he had work to do.
Wow this really is insane.

Whatever dude. As i stated i listen to Laver. Carry on.
