Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

It will be pathetic fanboyism to hope Djokovic overturn the H2H, Fed is playing past retirement age as a gift to his fans and won't care about h2h.

Chances are he will extend this h2h to further...

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

The refusal to play straight ball rallies against Nadal and Djokovic costs him on the slow courts. Of course he can cut down on UEs playing these neutral and safe rallies. He is like 34 and during...

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

yeah thats true. I believe he can get the 18th when he keep knocking at the small events. The issue for him is over playing small events last year, the slams are Bo5 of 7 matches and often we see him...

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

Rog was much better younger although tactically better right now.

The fluidity hitting of 06,07 was gone. The old videos show his windscreen racquet headspeed. From 08 this speed had decline. I...

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

Frustrating is Nadull stands behind the baseline and still returns any placement. Fed serve gives trouble to anyone who try to stand inside to attack.

Re: Coric are average with very agressive attaking players (from Top 100)?

Coric has good ability to keep ball in play but is clueless against all out offense. He will improve his attacking game and weight of shots. Still a very young dude.

Re: WWW? Dubai F: [1] Djokovic vs [2] Federer

I rather Fed lose this and win a slam final against Djokovic.

Mickey mouse is nothing. Fed is fresh in first week usually. 2nd week his physical fails him.

Re: Andre Agassi: "AO 2015 was the best tennis I have ever seen him (Murray) play""

Murray 2012, 2013 much better.

In AO he has enough to play consistent in 2 sets. But in those years he can go to 5.

Dont think Agassi watch him much anyway.

Re: WWW Dubai [SF]: Coric vs. Federer

Fed like to trash youngsters before they emerge. Done it to Djokovic, Nadal, Murray, Tomic, Coric will be same.

Re: Talent overrated

Attackers are all talents. Its much harder to hit flat aggressive balls than top spin retrieving.

Re: Nadal to Carlos Bernardes: "I will ask for you to not umpire my matches anymore"

Hitting close to the lines does not work anymore..obviously. The modern player will stand 5 meters behind to retrieve, making the tennis court longer. The net is no longer an obstacle.

This aspect...

Re: Nadal to Carlos Bernardes: "I will ask for you to not umpire my matches anymore"

The excuses here are ridiculous by Nadull fans.

Nadull needs more rests between points because he is a grinder. As simple as that. If the pace is fast he will be out of breath, points will be short...

If this goes on (nadal retirement, fed old) Djoker will have 7 YE #1 anyway...no one cares because its so boring.

Re: Why do you think Djokovic is less popular than Federer and Nadal?

Certainly he ranks far behind in popularity. It is translated by sponsorship money pie that Djokovic receives being 10 times less than Federer, 5 times less than Nadal.

Re: Djokovic career at 30+ vs Federers at 30+

He is not as good as finishing points, at 30 he still need to run to win a rally.

Rogie will have a better post 30 career.

If the field turns weak without nadull, Rogie will take more slams as...

2) NADAL the never say die attitude, silence when lost and likes to be trashed to comeback. Spectacular defense like sports car.

3) Djokovic Boring game,...

Re: Djokovic career at 30+ vs Federers at 30+

Today Djoker is struggling with youngsters already...every slam he goes through need 5 setters. How u expect he still winning in 30s?

The 5 setters will turn into losses.

Looks like u've met Nadull. Its frustrating to be Fed.

The match is in your racquet and u have to hit accurately. Your inside out and inside in FH, dropshot, DTL backhand. Playing a smarter game can...

Re: Federer's needs to find his forehand!!

His new volley game isn't good enough although his coach said he got faster around the net. He is supposed to block everything back when he go to the net then he can win slams.

This is if his...

Re: Novak Djokovic wins the Australian Open 2015 without being anywhere near his best

He has declined for sure..this is the level he will bring up this year, since last year was this level.

If Nadal and Fed bring back their old form they will collect the other...

Re: Will Djokovic be a GOAT candidate if he wins 12 slams?

More slam finals upsets will happen, his game is a pusher without a hell of a weapon.
