Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

Djokovic-del Potro 14-4



Turkey #14, and the first non-European one! That is pretty interesting considering he has pigeons from all 6 continents (no, I'm not counting Antarctica).

Waiting list updates: Nishikori still 1 match away, escaped becoming a turkey by handing Novak a W/O and then letting Delpo take his place the next week

Monaco retired, so he's off the list of potential turkeys, Lopez takes his place with 1-9.

^
It must be unusual against a turkey to have a majority of matches go the distance. Six wins in deciding set, five in straights.

Also 0% TBs won (0-2) by the eventual winner of the match must be unusual.

Djokovic-Simon 11-1



Turkey #13, Frenchman #5.

Next in line: Kei and Delpo with 1 match away and Raonic, Fognini, Baghdatis and Monaco with 2 matches (8-0 against each).

Federer: the ability to unturkey. Next step unpigeon, then dominate

Can Federer unpigeon himself as well? (side note: why a 4+ differential is needed instead of 5+?)

Roger unturkey himself from Rafa, would they meet again during the Clay Season ?

It's incredible how Olderer has managed to make a 3 Slam champion a near ostrich.

Djokovic is actually closer to whatever-the-next-one-is against Berdych, with 25-2.

Djokovic-Tsonga 16-6



Djokovic adds his 12th turkey and 4th Frenchman (after Gasquet, Monfils and Chardy). One match away with Simon.

If they could only meet more often now

Djokovic is as far as I know the only one to fully reverse turkey status and get ahead in a H2H. Will be interesting to see if he can do a "turkey cooked on both sides" eventually.
