"Djokovic is the one guy in the world that can actually run with Roger and hit with Roger, you know, can do all that stuff"

I thought Nadal did that too in Paris and Wimbledon? Silly me.

Yeah, Pete says that players ranked #4-#25 are in the same boat. Are they really?

I think Pete is over analyzing it and making the big three like they are untouchables.

Yes they are the big 3- the favorite to win any tournament they entered but please remember Davydenko is closing the gap in and is not in the same boat as the other 4-25 players.

I think needs to do his homework first before giving such a general statement of current players.

Pete doesn't watch tennis anymore. 1 or 2 sets during a whole GS tops. He admitted that himself in the past. And it shows !

pete is right, maybe he should have subdivided the boat into two parts. (A and B)

top 3 are untouchable, no doubting that.

then comes boat A (4th ranked to 10th ranked player) which for me includes the likes of rod, nalb, davy, murray, ferrer, even blake, etc who in any event after the top 3 are going to be the fav.

and then comes boat B which includes the players ranked from 11 to 25

I'll even throw rafa into the boat A for the HC events:devil:

Why would I argue ? I didn't say he's wrong, although I don't agree with all his points.
It's just that his comments lack insight and don't go any further than some stereotypes or some general conception. Like...Pete: "Shit, they ask me to talk about the current state of tennis, better look up some recent results quick."

ps Didn't Pete say at the end of last year that he see no one challenging Roger and that Roger is going to win 17-18 Slams. If he watch any tennis he would've known by then that Djoko would emerge as a big threat.

He recently told the reporters, speaking about this year's Stella Artois C'ship in Queen's, London, that

"It would mean the world to me if I was successful enough to win two huge tournaments (Queen's and Wimbledon) such as these but I don’t want to push myself too much"

More at http://www.artoischampionships.com/1/news/video_2008.asp

My understanding is that he is 1000% sure that he could win both, but, for the sake of something, not quite clear to me, he will not do his best...

What kind of philosophy is this one ?

Queens should actually be very interesting, if I recall correctly, Nole, Rafa and Roddick would all be playing there, no?

Funny how they avoid halle like the plague.

It would be interesting to see if Rafa can keep his stronghold as 'second on grass' there, Djoko would love to dethrone him, and that tournament could be another battle for number 2, I believe, should Rafa win the French and Nole makes it to the Semis.

Any type of good player can win 12 GS in that weak era. Playing injured players, chokers, teenagers and old men.

The only real GS Fed one was last years Wimby and he needed Nadal to get injured to win.

Now that Djokovic has arrived there will be no more tainted GS wins for Fed.

He only had Rafa to compete in RG and could not win even that.
Rafa takes RG and Fedex takes rest , sad and lucky for him.
No wonder he has 12 major GS , there was no REAL competition !!
Rafa is good player on HC but not in same class as Joker and Fed.

I don't think Federer will brake Sampras record.
Joker is the future of mens tennis !

They pointed one thing , competition is good for tennis and from now on we will enjoy more than Rafa-Fed final but Joker - ???? finals aswell !

I listen Peter Fleming alot and everybody gives Fed respect but they know there was no real competition before Joker turned up.
Rafa was takong RG and Fedex was taking rest GS.

How exciting !!!

Now lets se what happens and how many will they take now ?
