Re: I'm having a real hard time liking Djokovic

True but I was counting the slams only.

Re: I'm having a real hard time liking Djokovic

Between 2007 and 2009 when Federer was beating Djokovic most of the time, Federer's base rallying was much more solid than it is today, and he was also aggressively attacking at the same time.

Re: I'm having a real hard time liking Djokovic

I guess I ran root for Dimitrov but I can't rely on him playing at least 3-4 matches in a slam.

These days I'm finding myself rooting for Karlovic, at least it's fun to watch him slamming down...

I'm having a real hard time liking Djokovic

Despite all his successes I'm struggling to warm up to Djokovic. His off-court personality is another topic but I'm struggling to like him mainly because his style of play.

His style of tennis while...

Re: Believe it or not Federer still has a chance to win a slam

Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying. Realistically, how else would anyone expect a 34 year old to win a Slam? It's only still possible for Federer because his incredible talent and experience can...

Believe it or not Federer still has a chance to win a slam

From his performance in the past year and a half, and considering his competition, I would say he still has a real but slim chance to win a slam.

Yes he is 34 years old and is not get strong or as...

Re: Federer was lucky to be born earlier

No. Nadal and Djokovic are both lucky to be born six years later than Federer, so they can catch Federer on the decline.

There's not a lot of competition to Djokovic at the moment

The state of tennis is rather sad at the moment, I can't see any serious competition to Djokovic in the majors.

As we've just seen we can't expect Federer to beat Djokovic in a major anymore....

Re: Wimbledon SF: (2)Roger Federer def. (3)Andy Murray 7-5 7-5 6-4

Murray's decision to receive was a massive fuck up. It just put pressure on him serving at 4-5 and will continue to pressure him should he get broken for the set, as Federer will start serving in the...

How does prize money work?

For example, this is the men's singles prize money structure up to round 3.

R1 - 29,000
R2 - 47,000
R3 - 75,000

For example a player loses in R3, does he get paid TOTAL 75,000, or does he paid...

I think Federer needs a long break badly

I honestly think considering his age he's pushed himself too hard in 2014 by playing too many tournaments, and going deep in almost every one of them. From the start of the clay season in 2014 he's...

Is Federer the new matchpoint saving GOAT?

Previously it was Djokovic, in USO 2010, USO2011, and I think Shanghai Masters 2013 (?) he saved five MPs against Murray.

Now Federer saves 2MP in USO QF 2014 against Monfils, 5MP in Shanghai...

Has Federer screwed himself for 2015?

For a 33 year old his results and consistency this year has been tremendous.

This year to date he has achieved the following:

1 - Brisbane (F)
2 - AO (SF)
3 - Dubai (W)
4 - Indian Wells (F)
5 -...

Was the crowd really cheering for Nishikori?

I didn't watch the match but it seemed that the crowd showed strong support for Nishikori over Djokovic.

But I'm wondering did the crowd cheer for Nishikori because they genuinely wanted him to win?...

DId Federer just miss his best chance at Slam #18?

The US Open draw this year has been the easiest he's had for a long time. Then a gift came from the heavens when Nishikori beat Djokovic.

Unfortunatley he could not capitalize on this opportunity. I...

For a 33 year man he's played a monster schedule this year. In most tournaments he played he went very deep or reached the final.

He played both Indian Wells & Miami. Played Halle right before...

How long can Federer maintain his consistency for?

I'm wondering if Federer can possibly maintain his current consistency until his late 30s.

Other than a less than desirable 2013 due to injuries, his results in Grand Slams are incredibly...

Re: Federer needs to see a psychologist ASAP

I think he still believes that he can at least go very deep in Slams, if not win them. The mentality of a competitor is never that they just play for fun and don't aim to win.

There was NO EXCUSES...

Federer needs to see a psychologist ASAP

In recent years he has shown to be seriously mentally weak and can suffer horrendous and prolonged mental meltdowns if something doesn't go his way.

Not to mention his BP and SP conversion record....

Guys..... The most lopsided factor is that Nadal is 6 younger than Federer.

What's the main reason behind Federer's sharp decline this year

He wasn't winning much slams in the years of 2010, 2011, and 2012. But nonetheless he was consistently making QF and SF of slams, and winning Masters titles and WTFs.

But 2013 is a bit of a...

Re: Is Federer Ruining his Legacy?

No he is not at all. No tennis player will retire when he's still better than the vast majority of his peers.

Sure his results in 2013 aren't up to his usual standards. But consider this, in slams...
