Dafaq, I screwed up the poll

Call me a crazy but Istomin has a chance here . At the late Fed struggles a lot with ball bashing big servers

Re: WWW: Olympics Rd16: Federer vs Istomin

Istomin is the far better player, but Federer has shown some good form lately, so who knows ? He might pull yet another upset. That said, that can only happen if Istomin doesn't play his best, of course.

Federer in 2

Re: WWW: Olympics Rd16: Federer vs Istomin

Istomin in 2, or 2 if it gets really tight

Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Wimbledon W (1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980)

3 Channel Slams; 4 Consecutive RG; 5 Consecutive SW19

GOAT

It can't be Istomin in 3--he can't count that high. One, two, WTF is next?

Re: WWW: Olympics Rd16: Federer vs Istomin

This Istomin can actually turn out to be a really tough match-up for Fed.
I think Roger in 2 tight sets.

Re: WWW: Olympics Rd16: Federer vs Istomin

I don't remember Istomin hitting that huge of a ball tbh, very flat yes.

I say Fed gets an early break bc of Istomin's nerves and wins relatively comfortably in 2, 3 and 4.
