Delray Beach QR1: J-P Smith d. Rublev, 4-6 6-3 6-0
Anyone know what happened here?
Federer on Nadal: "He's quite one-dimensional with his game. The more I play him, the better it is for me."
Federer on Djokovic: "He says nothing outrageous in his game. Always pretty predictable, which is a good thing."
Delray Beach Q1: JP Smith def. Rublev 4-6, 6-3, 3-0
Horrendous post-USO form of Rublev continues. If i am not mistaken, he will drop out of top-200 in 2 weeks (maybe even the next week). I don't know what he should (and can) do with all of this. Seems that he should have played more at challengers, all these WCs didn't do a great job to him.
He's 27 and we're about the enter the Djokovic era, so much time left, you cannot even imagine how much time it actually is. I'll give you one example to understand what we're about to enter. Michael Jordan won his first championship at the age of 28. And now he's considered far and away the greatest basketball player of all-time. And no one comes even close. That's what will happen in tennis in the next 5-6 years. Considering the state of tennis - this is not even a difficult prediction. It's so, so obvious. Be prepared, bro, be prepared.
That will be the last victory of Rafa for quite some time.. With his joke mentality and pathetic game, I hope the disgusting player loses every single match next season. He's disgraceful. He should just retire. He's a joke.
It is not easy to be consistent underweight young gun, no matter how talented.
Either he doesn't care enough or he thinks that technique and power are more important than fitness and movement. Which is far from the truth. In fact, it has never been further from the truth in tennis.

It's all PR... Someone started talking about Coric and now you guys believe he's so wonderful kid, his highest ranking - 84, Dzumhur highest ranking - 87. The same actually. Difference? Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.
