True, it's common knowledge that Fed is not the most intelligent player on tour.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

He may not be able to play Nadal, but we all know who's ultimately the greater player.

thank you...finally.,...!!

Olderer only won first set because of serve. Nadal owns Fedmug in rallies.

Re: AO 2012 SF: Nadal def Federer 6-7(5) 6-2 7-6(5) 6-4

Fed should have done what McEnroe suggested - just hit to and approach on the Rafa's backhand until his forehand side is wiiiiiiiide open - then hit the winner. It's almost like Fed plays instinctively - playing the "correct" next shot (against everyone else) but not Rafa. He could have hit all those approaches to Rafa's backhand. I wonder if it's as Cahill says - Fed doesn't really analyze the video of the match - just going from memory. And WTH was with those 2 first serves in his last game that he just spun in - too tired?

Maybe it is as McEnroe said - it's too boring for Federer to keep hitting to Rafa's backhand? Or that the variety in his game is so engrained in his head that he can't just have a simple, straight-forward game plan as hit to Rafa's backhand over and over and over again?

Predicted correctly in the poll - too bad I'm too chicken to bet - I always go with my heart anyways. Nole will pound Rafa's backhand on Sunday as Fed should have. Wonder what all the "experts" who question Fed's GOATness say about Rafa with regards to Nole's ownage of him. Well, at least this match was competitive. I am happy to be watching Fed play at this level at this age - don't know how long it'll be before he retires - sure beats watching Shankerer (well he did show up after the fireworks).

I can't say I'm surprised at the excuses or hate being thrown at Nadal I guess by now that's to be expected. What's more sad is using Nole as a way to take the sting of defeat away. As if to somehow imply that Rafa fans will be avenged by losing to Djoko...that's beyond sad and pathetic.

Fed fans have not handled this loss well at all...pity.

Good match this one, was well worth the view.

On Sunday, Nadal will be crowned champion.

Nonsense. Sick & tired of reading about any number of "Golden Eras" which. quiote honestly were just that in their time. That said, dollars to donuts that the top ten/twenty players today would be more than competitive at any other time -- simply a matter of the sheer number of players involved in the game along with Darwinian evolution (training methods, nutrition, body-types, technology, sports medicine, etc.). In fact, I daresay players such as Murray, Tsonga, Byrdich, Soderling & Verdasco to name but a few, would have a Slam or two playing against the old guard. Never mind the top four -- they'd have a hard time losing to any of the old timers in 2days game.

The only way to make any sort of balanced comparison would involve a time-machine were the Borgs, Lends, Connors, Lavers et al, could jump forward in time and train with the the same methods available today. Otherwise we're talking routs. Tennis is a great sport and has been for a long time, but like any other it's akin to mental masturbation to compare eras...might get you off, but it's all in your mind.

Enjoy the moment, forget the hate and the irrational comparisons. Today it's all that matters.

Federer can't push Nadal from side to side . I guess he doesn't have a penetrating backhand and a spin forehand to control the rally.

Choking till the very last game.

I pray to heaven Nole wins tomorrow.
This match shouldn't count on H2H, Olderer had injured back.
