Simon Reed: Sorry, Fed: You're still the best

I was surprised to see Simon Reed was prepared to say so much:


"I want to start with a heartfelt apology to all Roger Federer fans. I got it really wrong.

Before the Australian Open I really did feel that the demands of fatherhood, plus the trouble that he showed at times closing out big matches last year, meant that we had seen the best of him.

I still thought he would have occasional great moments, but that they would become fewer and fewer.

Yet that one performance against Andy Murray at the final in Melbourne blows that theory out of the water.

Federer's decline will happen one day - it might be next year, it might be the year after.

But there's one thing you can say for sure about this season: he has got it back.

His form ebbed and flowed a little through the tournament - just as it did last year - and he even looked a little shaky in the opener against Igor Andreev, but when it came down to the big points in the big matches he came through, and in style.

Never was it better illustrated than in the third set of the final against Murray. With the Scot serving for the set, Federer came up with the goods to break, then closed out the win.

Not for a second did I think I'd be saying this, but if Federer wins again at Roland Garros then the Grand Slam is genuinely on.

---

I spoke to Andy after the final, and the thing that really got to him about his loss wasn't the missed set points in the tie-break, it was faltering when serving for the third set.

His star is still rising, though, and there's no reason to think that he won't spend most of this season as the number two in the world.

Part of that, sadly, is to do with Rafael Nadal's injury trouble.

He obviously thought he had the problems licked, and while nobody knows - not even him - how bad the latest set-back will be, it seems like the trouble isn't going away yet.

Let's all hope he'll get back to full fitness, because he's a cracking bloke and his talent is fantastic. I thought the best two sets of the whole tournament were the stunning first two against Murray in the quarter-final.

Of the other players, I was pleased to see Marin Cilic - one of my pre-season tips - play so well, particularly when he dug in and saved the match against Bernard Tomic.

Novak Djokovic had his moments too, and I believe he will stay in the world's top three and win more Grand Slams in the coming years. I still do think that Murray is a better player, though, and he will probably spend most of his career ranked above the Serbian."

Simon Reed has learned the power of his jinx. First Rafa now Roger. I figure he's planning on jinxing the whole of the top 10 bar Andy and then Andy is sure to win that first slam.

Simon Reed has just lost his comedy value and that means from no on no one will find anything of any special value in his articles, I think he will lose many readers if he continues this serious. It is like when Adam Sandler does serious movies and tries to be a serious actor, Simon Reed should embrace the fact that he is a clown and a tard, let everyone have a good laught at his expense.

Just wait until Murray wins Dubai and Simon Reed will come back to his senses and say something like: "Murray is still the best player in the world outside grand slams, if Murray plays like he did in Dubai certanly there will be nothing Federer or anyone else can do to stop Murray from winning Wimbledon and US Open"

If it weren't for Simon Reed doubting Federer then Federer would have doubled his Slam success during 2008 and 2009. Now that Simon Reed has realized the errors of his ways, all the paths are now clear for Federer to win the Grand Slam.

Well he can't be completely wrong all the time, even idiots can come up with a something that sounds sane every now and then. I am not concerned about Fed, he's above the jinxing powers of this clown.

But Murray is not. And because of that, he's probably gonna have a pretty bad year, based on this more usual Reed prediction:

His star is still rising, though, and there's no reason to think that he won't spend most of this season as the number two in the world.

Now that very unlikely now.

Federer is doomed. he probably will crush out in 1st round RG. Ending his SD-streak and never recover on the GS stage. Losing the next 10 matches to Murray without any BP.

Federer might as well retire. Legendary jinx by The Reedinator. As a consequence, we can expect Murray to win the remaining 3 majors this year.

Murray needs to win some MAster shields FAST

for Roger's sake

the jinx master must change his mind, and go back to his murray nut hugging soon

on a related note

the night of the Australian open, i stayed awake because i was so excited- watching 2 of the best hard court player thrash it out was just too enticing especially as the entire english media had decide to go into lock down and focus entirely on murray

before the match we had sue barker, and boris becker with tim henman sat talking about the final

thats 3 legends of tennis- and what were they talking about

the biggest pile of manure i have ever heard

tim- i'm not suprised, he's everyone's fave loser

boris- he was getting paid so he sprouted whatever bile they wanted

but sue- sue usually makes sense

but this was a woman possessed- it seemed like every other statement was about how murray was destined to win- with random facts

murray leads h2h
murray is playing his 17th major- federer won on his 17th
even if the 1st set is lost, all is not lost

ultimately- whilst watching i came to a conclusion

the english must suffer

its....... too good. the drama, is just to deliciously good- watching their hopes build up throughout a tournament- watching sur barker ask everyone and their father what chance murray has of winning

example- warwinka wins his singles match- he comes afterwards for an interview

retard interviewer

"well done. good match---- (pause 3 seconds) so will murray win wimbledon"

its just too good to watch, all the hopes go up.... and then watch a million chav hearts all break at once when murray enevitabley loses, because... lets be honest here- england didn't win world war 2... it was america

england just arent winners. they pride themselves on being losers... and its a positive thing

its almost become a cliche

the french are pansies
the germans have no humor
the americans blow shit up
and the british are losers

i cant wait for wimbledon. oh joy

^ Um, actually it was Russia who did most to defeat Germany in World War II. I'll give the Americans Japan.

The build-up/let-down should England reach the quarters or semis of the World Cup will be even worse. God I hope Spain wins.

Do you see a pattern going on here? Yet you have the balls to say no more slams after he had just won one?
