Is JMDP the main reason Murray won his Wimbledon and OG?

In olympics 2012 Federer just beat Del Potro 19-17 in the third set after 4 hours of play. Federer was exhausted and came back in the finals seriously deflated.

Same scenario Wimbledon 2013....

Re: Gasquet or Dimitrov: Who is the better Baby Fed?

Gasquet is baby Fed mainly due to one handed BH and he has an elegant touch. However, like many here say he is super defensive and he stands 10 ft behind the baseline.

Dimitrov is defensive as well...

Why and When did the Federer Nadal rivalry lose juice?

At the beginning their matches were very exciting. Remember epics of Miami 2005, Rome 2006, RG 06 and 07 and Wimbledon 06,07,08.

But then came the RG08 joke of a match followed by the incredibly...

Re: Nadal needs to avoid (or not win) WTF to solidify his GOAT claim

What? Federer has only one RG, but more titles at the other 3 slams. So he's safe slams wise.

We're talking about WTF here.

Re: Will Djokovic equal or break Federer's WTF record

So with Djokovic's win, he's now at 4. I think he has a very strong chance to at least equal Federer's 6.

Nadal needs to avoid (or not win) WTF to solidify his GOAT claim

Think about it. At this moment anybody who is claiming Nadal as GOAT is happy ignoring WTF or calling it an exhibition.

But what if Nadal wins it? It will be considered a huge achievement. And here...

Re: The Mother of all WWW hypotheticals: Nadal vs Davydenko at all 4 Grand Slams?

Good thread, PileDrive.

Davydenko is a difficult matchup for Rafa, but Rafa is so tough in slams. My picks are:

AO: Davydenko in 4 sets. Nadal will run forever, but Davydenko will eat his...

Re: Who would have won had Federer and Djokovic met at this year 's AO, FO and USO?

AO: Toss up. Federer was playing inspired tennis. He was king at the net. The court was playing a bit fast. On the other hand Djokovic wasn't at his best but still he's super great in Melbourne....

Re: Tomas Berdych : "Novak's performance was better than when I played Roger in 2006"

Exactly!

Plus there's a difference in style between Federer and Djokovic. Federer is so confident on his own serve. He just looks for that one break in a set and then cruises on. Djokovic will...

Re: Toughest matchup for Rafa?

1- I think Rafa's toughest matchup is JMDP. He blasts off both wings. His BH is barely affected by heavy topspin. And he slaps his FH on the run like no other player. This hurts Rafa so bad, because...

Re: Toughest matchup for Rafa?

Very well said.

And to add to your point, Neimenen was one of the few who took a set off Rafa on clay during the 81 match streak.

Re: Rank the Slams not won by Fed/Nadal/Djoko since 2005 by the most squandered away

Good thread Pile Drive, despite some poor analysis.

Will Djokovic equal or break Federer's WTF record

Federer sits alone with 6 WTFs. Incredibly, Djokovic has 3 already. Imagine if he wins this year he'll have 4 and only 2 to go.

Why has Djokovic failed so many times at beating Rafa in RG?

Djokovic is tough matchup for Rafa. He even beat Rafa on clay in Madrid, Rome and MC. But at RG, Novak has failed 6 times already.

Re: Peak Forehand years - Federer and Nadal

Good thread.

Federer: 2005! He was crushing FHs, topspin, flat, in the corners and everything.
Nadal: 2008 of course! The shots were so heavy and the pace was incredible.

Federer will an 18th slam no doubt

Yes he will. Look at his improvement from 2013 to 2014:
AO: SF --> SF
FO: QF --> 4th
W: 2nd --> F
US: 4th --> SF

His net game is now formidable. He's rediscovering his potent FH and his BH is...

Re: Sam Groth : "Roger Federer is not Rafael Nadal, he doesn't fight for every point"

While Nadal plays harder tennis, Federer plays smarter.

The guy has a point in that Nadal will pressure almost every return game. Fed like Sampras rarely does that. He often looks for that one...
