No. I think Federer's decline is a fact and he's not winning any major in the future. 39 17.57%
I kinda agree... He's in a great moment, but the other 2 guys are too good. No more slams for Feddy 45 20.27%
I totally agree. Fed's still playing great tennis and he'll probably win another major 105 47.30%
Hello. I'm Rod Laver and my records are intact. Suck it losers. 33 14.86%

Re: Two Posts Worthy of its Own Thread - Sharing is Caring Guys!

Why on earth did you open a thread for this on GM?

Jesus Christ.

Re: Two Posts Worthy of its Own Thread - Sharing is Caring Guys!

The first post makes sense and it seems to be based on actual facts. A good reminder through numbers for anyone getting excited about Roger's decline. The second one is some kind of emotional plea and not very convincing

Re: Two Posts Worthy of its Own Thread - Sharing is Caring Guys!

How about you just edit out the second post which is pretty biased while the first one just deals with facts

How about random posts by visitors to the guestbook at Federer's OS are not of general interest?

A new low.

Look, i intended the facts in the first post to be quite informative. I think by examining the performance of several past no.1's, it gives a bit of perspective. Is that little bit of perspective too much?

Re: Two Posts Worthy of its Own Thread - Sharing is Caring Guys!

MTF is allergic to perspective.

Also, there are not enough threads about Fedmug in GM.

If the stated facts are accurate, I don't see any harm in discussing it. The second post was very biased/conspiratorial so am glad you edited that out.

Of course you are right and I was just over-reacting.

Of course this deserved a thread of its own.

Re: A Post and Some Figures Worthy of its Own Thread - Sharing is Caring Guys!

the poster is forgetting the fact that roger has been playing crap since last yrs aus open and not only this yr. he barely escaped wimb defeat (though ill admire him for the champions quality he showed there) and shouldve lost the us open but thanks to chokovic, and then his loses to canas, volandri and nalby also showed that he is no more as dominant as he was before and hell have to work more hard to win the tournaments so he just cant put all the blame on mono. in simple roger decline had started long ago before that mono thing

Uhm, maybe it's not quite the same thing yes, but isn't MTF GM sort of a "guestbook of tennis" consisting of very random posts by very random visitors?..

I could even say that in a much harsher way too, you know.
