He has only himself to blame..
Some Losses are worse even if you don't hold championship points..
I'm asking about rublev match though, what exactly happened??
Yeah, don't believe the Nadalovic gang. Has nothing to do with this loss. Fed looked exactly like he did against Cilic in USO 2014. Just flat and as if he couldn't give af.
How many times do I have to ignore you for you to realize that I don't give a S about you? One more dumb reply and say hello to my ignore list. Then your 41-year old loser a** can sit all day and produce replies to me that I will never see.hahahahahah..Rublev GOATED? funniest delusion yet.
Its a high bouncing court, higher than usual and Federer, as I keep saying, is average on a high bouncing court as his BH fails. Federer is the most one dimensional player of the big 3. Not a huge surprise for me as I called it...my thread saying he looked broken was deleted for apparent baiting, when of course I was correct. I saw this coming two days ago!Well, I could not watch the match as it was on a midnight schedule.
Can anyone elaborate what happened in that Roger Rublev match??
You just don't beat roger 6-3 6-4 in cincinati....
Its ok...you are upset. I get that, but I am posting facts. Facts trump opinions.How many times do I have to ignore you for you to realize that I don't give a S about you?

Federer wasn't the best player at Rome 2006, it was Nadal. Federer barely got past Almagro and Nalbandian to get to the final, Nadal was crushing everyone on his way to the final. The final was dead even though.No Wim2019 was the worst. He was not the best player at these tournaments, except maybe for Rome 2006 but it was a Master 1000. At Wim2019 he was and had 2 f*****g title points
What happened to your VaproDude friend btw? Seems like he’s banned. Couldn’t stand the 40-15?How many times do I have to ignore you for you to realize that I don't give a S about you? One more dumb reply and say hello to my ignore list. Then your 41-year old loser a** can sit all day and produce replies to me that I will never see.
Your right, he did, but then the context was different. Losing tight matches in a slam when you're still relatively young stings but you always have next year/slam ahead of you. Federer is slowly closing in on 40 which means getting to a slam final is getting progressively harder as he's fighting an uphill battle and for all we know, it might have been the last slam final of his career. Coming so close (2 MP) to winning another slam against one of your main rival is going to leave a mark no doubt about that. You might argue that Fed lost IW final last year and he bounced back, but I don't think you can compare an MS-1000 to a slam. MS-1000 mean little compared to a slam when you look at the big picture.
I'm not looking forward to reviewing Rublev's renaissance because I found it very hard to digest the above-mentioned match. That was when I made peace with Fed's slam count, concluding he'd win no more.His worst performance from a total points won % perspective since the 2016 Aussie Open semis loss to Novak Djokovic. Terrible outing for Fed yesterday.
I think it was the worst given the amount of runway his career has remaining. Could be a hangover effect. To the point - what happened with Rublev (and not to take anything away from young Rube) - one scenario might be ‘I’d rather rest before the USO than play a and win Cincy’. So he makes the appearance, tanks it (with more flair than Nick) and preps for the next week instead of playing matches.No that was the worst.
That's how it appeared to me, too. I'm hoping we'll see him looking sharp again for the USO. If not, I'll start worrying a little...Even before the Rublev match, I was looking at Fed in the 2nd round against Londero and his heart didn't look in it. He looked unmotivated as if he didn't want to be on the tennis court which is something I've rarely seen from him. If we see the same kind of attitude at the USO and he loses in the 1st week, then I think we'll have more reason to be worried.
