Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

So the last Slam of the year is over. Now you can refelect on your favourite player or players US Open performance. 10 being great and 0 being crap.

Okay, here's mine.

Tsonga: 1/10
1 word, Shit. 2nd round isn't acceptable, and he was crap in doing so. Disapointing US Open for Jo.

Del Potro: 6/10
He did what was expected of him really. Came up against Nole in the Quarter Finals, and couldn't do anything because Nole was playing great in that match. Wasn't too convincing leading up to the quarter finals, but he did what was expected of him.

Jo Wilfried Tsonga

Federer 5/10: quarters is the minimum result for Fed. Extended his qf streak but should have done a lot better IMO. Watching how everyone's played the semis and finals, he had a shot at the title. However I knew before the match berdych would be tough for him to get through, 4 days off didn't help him either.

Too happy about the rest of the season to complain though!

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Roger: Underwhelming. Berdych is always a tough opponent for him but the way he played that match had 2010/2011 written all over it. He could have and should have done better, but I can't ask for more from him as a fan after the incredible summer he gave us.

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Del Potro: 6/10

As stated in the first post, did what was expected by reaching the QF and losing to Djokovic. Other than the final 2 sets against Roddick, he wasn't convincing at all during the tournament.

Ferrer: 8.5/10

Excellent tournament for Pics. Obviously getting the #4 seed meant he was projected to get to the SF, but his performance in getting there was great. Won 5 of 6 tiebreaks aswell (including a 14-12 TB and an 11-9 TB) which is impressive. Gets an extra half point for annoying the haters even further.

Roddick 7.5/10

Brought back some form from pre-2008 after announcing his retirement. He seemed to dig out that old FH from a dusty cupboard somewhere in place of the puffball he had been hitting the past couple of years. Wasn't truly expected to beat Del Potro, but he made it damn interesting for 2 sets. At least he didn't go out pushing.

Harrison 5/10

Did well to get past R1 given his awful form coming into the tournament. Was never expected to beat Delpo in R2 though.

Mardy Fish 6/10

R4 was his ceiling given his draw, and obviously he had to pull out due to health concerns. Still, he registered 3 wins prior to that, including bouncing Davydenko from 0-2 down in R2.

Tsonga 0.5/10

Everyone was looking forward to a Tsonga - Murray QF from when the draw was made. He might have registered a couple of points if he went out to a dangerous floating unseeded player, but Klizan? Please.

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Fed Clown: 3/10
Like tripwires said, an appearance from 2010/2011 Fedclown, not great on the eyes. Vintage FedError. I mean losing to Bird SHIT after he tried choking? I can't...

Ferrer: 9/10
After leading 5*-2 and play being canceled I was excited. It was the first time ever I felt like David had an actual chance winning a grand slam. Sure the feeling was misleading but it was great. Throughout the tournament he didn't even play well, though he peaked near the end but ended badly against Djoko.

Djokovic (in the final): 5/10
His adaptability really disappointed me.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Nadal 's gamesmanship

.

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Berdych - 8/10. Played great all tournament just got screwed by the conditions.

Murray - 9/10. Didn't play his best for most the tournament but mentally he was great every round.

Tsonga - 1/10. No need for an explanation.

Del Potro - 5/10. Put up a good fight agains Djokovic, but still lacking his complete game.

Monfils and Soderling - 0/10.

Federer- 5/10 Very disappointed in Federer. If he could have gotten past Berdych, he would have won this tournament. He played awful in the Quarters. But you can't win them all.

Kohli - 8/10

Good fighting during his Matches. Gave it up a little in the end against a great tipsy.

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Del Potro - 7

Good tournament. Went as far as he could go given his current condition.

Berdych - 9

Was not allowed to be in the final, but played more than well enough to be there.

Tsonga -



Seriously, WTF?

Cilic - 6

Very good tournament overall, but the mother of all chokes against Murray leaves a very bitter taste, very bitter.

Nishikori - 6

Played decently, lost to an on-fire Cilic in R3.

Djokovic - 8

Good tournament, just unlucky with the conditions in the final.

Re: Rate and summerise your favourite players US Open performance

Tipsarevic - 9/10

Defended his points from last year, beat who he should beat, played his best tennis in the QF and was a part (and a big reason for happening) of the match of the tournament. If only he could hold after 4-2 or break at 4-1* 30-0 in the 5th...

Djokovic - 8/10

Good tournament, was looking great, probably would win if it wasn't for the wind, but he adapts so poorly to it, he deserved to lose.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey
