How the mighty have fallen in tennis

Maybe a changing of the guard is imminent. How in the heck do u bagel someone the first set and let that guy come back and beat you the following two? Also, I believe this is twice in a row the supposed "GOAT contenders" Fed currently, and Nadal in the future has let slamless Davydenko just bully both of them on the court. The way Davy put the hurting on these two, it would seem Davydenko himself was supposed to be some all time great.

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

yeah yeah, it's not like other "GOAT contenders" (as stupid as that is) have been defeated by slamless opponents

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

Davydenko was ranked #3 a few years ago, so why is it so surprising if he beats Federer and Nadal sometimes? It is more likely to mean that he is back to his best, rather than there is anything wrong with the top 2.

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

A veteran player who has never made a slam final is wiping the floor with hasbeens who've won majors.
Welcome to the WTA, suckers!

Now, just wait for Fed and Nadal to be less consistent, so that other players can win something, then it'll become a stronger era. It won't be long, Fed is old and Nadal is injured most of the time. Strong era, here we come!!!

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

Until someone regularly beats them in the Grand Slams (in Feds case anyway) nothing as changed.

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

Davydenko happens to be a damn good player. Sorry if some people don't understand that.

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

davydenko is so underrated by so many people, don't forget that he was #3 a few years back, he owns nadal on HC, and he has played some very close matches with fed, but just lacked the mental strength and belief to beat fed.

nowadays is a time when he is hopefully playing to his full potential.

Re: How the mighty have fallen in tennis

i think the main reason for all of this and fair play to him

Davydenko has improved his game and taken it to the next level

this cant be argued, just too good.

Federer hasn't gone anywhere. He's an elite player, and, unlike many of the pimps and playboys on the ATP tour, he knows what he's doing. The JMDPs and Djokers are not consistent and elite enough to prevent him from winning some more GSs.
