Can someone summarize me the state of tennis after the US Open?

Not a troll thread, but after Nole won the US Open I completely stopped following tennis out of disgust. ( I previously used to follow tennis intensely ever since 2005). Now I am back after hearing the good news. But it seems, I have missed out a lot in the interim. Can someone summarize in a few words, the state of men's tennis in the interim along with any important results/changes?
Love and Thanks in advance.

Djokovic and Nadal destroyed each other in the US Open Final. Federer couldn't be arsed to played the Asian swing, so Murray cleaned up over there winning 3 titles, including bagling Raga in the Tokyo final. Federer returned for the indoor season, winning Basel and Paris (the latter for the first time) with Murray basically being fit one minute and then injured the next and Djokovic unfit with Rafa skipping it all.

Not much else happened, unless you support Argentina and Spain, but being a Brit I don't bother with the Davis Cup as we're crap.

its one of the following:

A: Nadal and Nole lazy pieces of trash when the conditions don't benefit their game, and they have pretty much gone into hibernation post USO.
B: Legit burn out to Nole and Rafa.. They have busted their tales all year and never have enough left in the tank for the end of the year
C: Just better threats indoors who's game benefit them more

I guess its a combination of all of the following.

Faster conditions indoors with no wind and lower bouncing balls better fitting for their game then slow conditions outdoors.. Nole still nursuing an injury, Rafa just not caring until January hits and Nole and Rafa just plain aren't as effective indoors against guys who are hitting bigger and going more for the kill

Probably one of the worst post US open season of the last 10 years.

Djokovic tired/injured (?)
Nadal lackluster/poor indoor form
Federer fresh/strong indoor form

sums it up

You need to give credit where credit is due. It is DELPO not Nadal who destroyed Djokovic.

The Serbian's recent era can be divided into two Davis cup events:

before and after the Davis cup win
before and after the Davis cup loss (a.k.a before and after the DELPO ass-whooping!

But Novak was already spent when he played JMDP in that match

In summary, shitty.

That is all. Best moment was Murray's 6-0 set vs. Nadal.

Until in the middle of the Delpo match everything was going perfect for Djoker and everyone was 100% sure that he would win everything without a shadow of a doubt as he has done for months until then.

It's Delpo who rewrote the script and stopped the unstoppable high-speed "Djoker train" dead on it's tracks. Djoker became spent BECAUSE Delpo cleaned his clock in his own backyard.

Newsflash: he wasn't.

He became spent AFTER the Delpo match started (when he started getting the rocket bombs. Until then everything was going 100% fine.

:help:

Did you watch men's tennis from Australia to Wimbledon?

Yes, and Novak fell very hard. How would you expect Novak just to bounce back after those 2 last matches in NY and a few days later take on JMDP at his best in Davis cup, I mean wtf? It was stupid he even played, but he values Davis Cup so much.

that is a funny photo!

honestly OP, the other posters have summed it up well. Djokovic has spent himself and has had some sort of injury problem :confused: for a while, or at least he claimed he had one. at this point he looks fine physically and maybe has lost his confidence after losing to Del Potro in DC ?

Rafael Nadal has been of horrible form since US OPen, possibly still wounded by his continual bitching by Djokovic in 2011 and seems to be either slightly disinterested or out of shape, hopefully both of which improve in 2012.

Roger Federer starting in Basel has had sublime form, citing claims of a ressurection of Jesus Christ.

Andy MUrray had some amazing form in the asian swing but one must wonder if this was caused only because of the very much absence of his other top competitors (besides Nadal in Tokyo). now he appears to have developed some sort of groin injury likely caused by jumping on Nadal's bones in the locker room.

and last but not least, the rest of the tour has been as boring and absent as they were for the rest of 2011, besides maybe flashes of Tsonga and Ferrer!

you picked a perfect part of the season to skip and you probably should have went ahead and waited until 2012 to come back out
