Re: Was Djokovic just really unlucky at slams between 2008 and 2010?

^ Although Agassi's drug-taking was recreational drug-use, Crystal Meth, which only helped him get to number 141 in the world. The ATP knew it wasn't performance-enhancing obviously, so they were...

Re: Is Fed done ?

At the slams, apart from 3 losses (RG 2010 to Soderling, Wimbledon 2010 to Berdych, Wimbledon 2011 to Tsonga) he's looked the same as always. And even those losses were perhaps due to him facing an...

Re: Is Fed done ?

Federer was definitely in his prime in 2011-2012, with he 24 match winning-streak. Ask him, if you don't believe me. He has already said it was his best tennis ever. That is why the betting odds gave...

Re: Was Djokovic just really unlucky at slams between 2008 and 2010?

Does Federer even get drug tested? Nadal was tested at 6am the morning after celebrating his 2011 Roland Garros victory. And he's already been test 3 times this year, he said yesterday in fact (in...

Re: Is Fed done ?

Federer was just on a 24 match winning-streak, and during that streak he spoke of how he is playing better than ever, the the media was also calling him 'vintage Federer' a few weeks ago. Losing to...

Re: Was Djokovic just really unlucky at slams between 2008 and 2010?

You don't think there is something supicious about a guy who never looks tired, and plays his best tennis at the end of the year, at age 30, no less, while Rafa and Djok collapse? Federer is the most...

Re: Was Djokovic just really unlucky at slams between 2008 and 2010?

In 20 years people will say:

Djok owned Nadal for a year, but Nadal at age 26 lifted his game higher (than the calendar year 2010 when he become the only man in world history to win 3 slams on 3...

Re: DC Round 1: Isner defeats Federer 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-2 (USA leads 2-0)

I agree, it is hard to imagine Isner knocking Federer out of a slam. Seems extremely unlikley. Then again, Berdych knocked Federer out of Wimbledon 2010. We'll see. Maybe Federer is about to lose...

Re: DC Round 1: Isner defeats Federer 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-2 (USA leads 2-0)

3 factors:

1) People generally can relate to (and gain inspiration from) players who rely on great work ethic, more than great talent.
2) People generally prefer humble people.
3) Federer's game...

Re: Was Djokovic just really unlucky at slams between 2008 and 2010?

Also the 2010 and 2011 US Open where Federer had 4 matchpoints. And the 2012 Australian Open where Nadal led 4-2 and had an open winner for 40-15 to go toward 5-2. For sure, Djok's luck has changed.

Maybe Nadal will usher Federer into retirement at the Olympics. Or better yet, at the US Open :yeah:

Re: Will Nadal manage to win a set against Novak on clay this year?

I know, and some things only last a year.

Re: AO 2012 SF: Nadal def Federer 6-7(5) 6-2 7-6(5) 6-4

Because Federer is the GOAT. The player all others will be measured by in history, until Nadal replaces him. In 10 years, nobody will care what Nadal's h2h is vs Djok (btw it's still 16-14 Nadal, and...

No surprise Isner is the only man ever to force Nadal to play 5 sets at Roland Garros.

Re: AO 2012 SF: Nadal def Federer 6-7(5) 6-2 7-6(5) 6-4

It's weird, I still get the impression Nadal is more pumped to play Federer than to play Djok. I think it would hurt Nadal to lose to Federer more than it would hurt to lose to Djok. Especially in a...

Re: Will Nadal manage to win a set against Novak on clay this year?

Well, when Nadal regains power over Djok, Nadal won't suddenly start losing to Fed and Murray necessarily. So Nadal will go on a long streak of slam victories. And I've seen the way Nadal plays the...

Re: Will Nadal manage to win a set against Novak on clay this year?

Anyway, be careful what you guys commit to when it come to writing off Nadal. Because if Nadal conquers Djok, then we are probably looking at Nadal winning about 4-6 slams in a row. He has reached a...

Re: Will Nadal manage to win a set against Novak on clay this year?

Only if it takes Nadal 6 hours to win the RG semi-final. If Nadal wins the semi in 3 or 4 sets your prediction won't look impressive actually.

And Nadal accomplished these 6 hours with the newly weighted racquet. Nadal said before the AO that he wasn't ready and that he needs another month to adjust to the newly weighted racquet. I saw a...

Re: Will Nadal manage to win a set against Novak on clay this year?

And Nadal didn't play great in the 2nd set (and 3rd set). Nadal only lost that 2nd set 6-4, despite playing poorly. Nadal wasn't far from being up 2 sets to 0.

Re: Will Nadal manage to win a set against Novak on clay this year?

The opposite. Those who predicted Djok would win the AO final achieved nothing. They played it safe. Any dumbo could predict the favorite. They failed, because the match took 6 hours and Djok was...
