He was just on holiday. He needs to rediscover winning because he's become beatable

He will be just fine!

Who said he won't be fine?
The question is does he want reestablish himself and start winning titles again or does he want his main rival to walk all over him while he slips here and there ?
If he gets #1 before olympics, it shows a sense of urgency and puts a spotlight back on him . This year is not like last year unfortunately so he needs to adapt. If he had a big win streak and a big lead , he may be cautious but now is the time for some change.

Re: Grass is made for eating! Wimbledon cheering thread: SF vs Federer

He was the only player not to play before wimbledon and if he did he'd still be on top and probably better prepared. He is taking
it too lightly but he is not on some big winning streak .

Re: Grass is made for eating! Wimbledon cheering thread: SF vs Federer

Grass --> clay --> grass

Rank#1 or #2 won't affect his draw in Olympics. If he wins, he will regain his #1 ranking although unless Federer totally bombed out in the two summer 1000 events or Nole wins both, Roger will be back to #1.

I see absolutely no reason for Nole not taking a rest before the long summer.

Number one or number 2, doesn't really matter. Nole will still be, cliché but true, will still be our number one. Besides isn't it a bit boring if number one is always the same. Variability is the key to happiness.

If he plays this tournament he is back to #1 for olympics and gives him some security for the summer.
If he doesn't play, he will get penalized and will get 0 as he won't play 500 tournamets until after USO or maybe like last year won't play them at all .
Getting #1 for the USO is also important as he would be the favourite. That's not to mention that Rafa can also take him over and quickly he is at #3 which is also very realistic.

As for the rest, he just had 2 weeks of rest between the slams. He has played only around 45 matches this year. I was listening to John Mcenroe unfortunately and he said that Nole will never get back #1 again and there are many of them who are hoping for it.

Losing #1 rank is bad to a player that doesn't respect you
Losing #1 rank is bad to a player that you have dominated lately
Losing #1 rank is bad that is on the other side of 30's
Losing #1 rank is bad to a player that just plays more than you do and is more motivated
Losing #1 rank is bad when it can lead to slipping further away

I don't know about what goes through his head but that list makes me cringe.

Yes but why not prove him wrong ?
Things are looking bleak and then going into USO, he may really fall down.
JMAC and others like him will love it.
The main thing is that I think is that he has forgotten winning. Even when
he won AO , he almost gave it away and probably thinks subconciously , it can
be turned around like that all the time.

Did he say that during the final, any video of that? If true I lost a lot of respect for him.

He may have had the beginning of a cold. I lived in England for 5 years, believe me, it is damp, humid, cold, windy even during the summer. Easy to catch a cold.

Maybe that explains the low energy. He made an effort in the second set but he realised he didn't have the energy needed to win the whole match.

But that second set should make us optimistic. If he could have played like that for 3 sets, he would have won, even against JesusFed. He just had a cold.

Let's wait for the Olympics. Even on grass. Even indoors. Even against Roger, Nole can win gold. I'm sure of it.

He just had a bad day on Friday. Nothing to worry about. Nole is not as lucky as Roger, in the sense that when Roger had a bad day, Malisse still insisted on gifting him the match. No such luck for our Nole.
NOBODY is as lucky as that guy.I'm starting to believe that story about selling your soul to the devil is not just a story.

what he believes and say it and then he will play better . He gets no respect from the international media, fed and just barely from Nadal and probably never will so he has to push himself out there and stick it to them.
FUCKING A.
