Will Stan Tank again ??

After 2015 Us open fiasco ı am convinced this match is kind of a formality.Fed as good as or as great as he is still not at his PEAK and Stan under normal circumstances should be very difficult opponent. Yet somehow Stan tries shorten things and hit the ball out and to the net all the time. No he isnt that bad but Rogerio should have been FRESH for the finals. NO ???

SAdly I think yes..which really pisses me off ..if he d lose in 4 tight hard fought sets I wouldn t have any problem if fed outplays and outcluches him..but if he starts hitting again 100 stupid pointless UE s,it s gonna be a ****fest.

Come on , why would he tanked GS SF?
I'm sure he will fight as hard as he can on this court which happen to suit his opponent almost perfectly

There is no irony at all. Just my two cents. Federer is better player on these courts , Stan used to be favorable match up to him, on hard esp.But I don't think Waw will just tank.

You realize there is difference between tanking and playing poorly, right? One is intentional and the other is just a product of the level you're playing at the moment.

G.O.A.T.
2013: 4R loss to eventual champion Djokovic in 5 tight sets (final set 12-10).
2014: Champion
2015: Semi final loss to eventual champion Djokovic in 5 sets.
2016: 4R loss to Raonic in 5 sets. Raonic went on to play semis and lost to Murray in 5 sets.

So yeah, seems like he chokes a lot in Melbourne.
