Re: US Open 3R: (32) Fabio FOGnini expelled (8) Rafael Nadal 3-6 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4

I thought nadal hit through well in the first 2 sets. He lost energy behind and couldn't finish off fognini. Its age catching up.

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

It will work against the current nadal who can't pull off a passing shot

Also, the ball comes back to the server very fast, there is less time to set up a pass.

Re: Cincinnati F: Federer def. Djokovic 7-6 (1), 6-3

Federer's new return from the service box is sexy.

Fans criticized him chipping every 2nd serve back.

I wonder whether this return can counter Nadal's sliding 2nd serve to the T.

Re: Most gracious loser on the ATP tour

Ferrer and del potro.

Djokovic only after the match after smashing racquets and throwing vulgarities.

Re: Federer hitting the ball at the other side of the net

Its legal to hit a shot on the other side of net as the ball bounced backwards due to spin. Provided the player don't touch the net.

Re: Cincinatti F: Federer def. Djokovic 7-6 (1), 6-3

Not when he miss some routine shots he wouldnt miss 10 yrs ago. The scoreline would have been a trashing.

Re: This is the first time Federer has beaten the #1 and #2 in B2B matches to win a t

I always knew he can return a serve standing in the service box.

It can be countered if the person hit 2nd serve flat, rarely in the tour does it except pete.

Re: Andrew Barron Murray has lost 10 straight sets to Roger Federer

Murray is alright. He is tired and needed this loss.

Winning cincy and canada will be 0% for US open.

Re: Cincinnati SF: Novak Djokovic def. Alexandr Dolgopolov 4-6 7-6 6-2

It will be close in the final, fed is old.

even for djokovic's age he is old and going to decline soon. He looks bored and unmotivated nowadays.

murray will win djokovic in big matches in 2016.

Re: WWW:Cincinatti Final - [1]N.Djokovic vs [2]R.Federer

It is taxing when he extend the matches into 2 to 3 hours and deciding sets, pushing every shot back. Even Nadal at his peak has more aggressive forehand.

The oil will burn out one day.

Re: Cincinatti QF: [1] N.Djokovic def. [5] Wawrinka 6-4 6-1

Against king of clay nadal at his peak he don't have a chance. Both matches wasn't close.

Against wawrinka he lost the most important chance.

Re: Did Nadal fans really think Rafa was going to destroy Fed tomorrow?

Nadal clearly want to avoid this. He lost to everyone else.

But if he lost to 34 year old Fed at slow courts his career is over.

Re: Cincinnati R3: Roger Federer def. Kevin Anderson 6-1 6-1

Kanderson is easy for Fed's variety. When he mix it up Kanderson cannot ballbash.

Why is this match even hype up? just because Djokovic nearly lost in 5 to him.

Re: Suggestions for Djokovic to become an even better player

He's pretty much maxed out his game.

The next level is like perfection tennis but it will be too risky playing aggressive.

Re: Cincinnati R3: Lopez def. [8] Nadal 5-7 6-4 7-6(3)

Rafa evading to preserve H2H.

He don't want to meet another top player outside clay for rest of his career.

His spanish friends get a win is always for tank purpose.

Re: Roger Federer: “I think I'm a better player now than when I was at 24"

I think is not easy for Djokovic as well after 27, probably he will get 2 free slams due to this weak era competition in 2016,2017. He gets pissed being outplayed by inferior players way too often.

Re: Roger Federer: “I think I'm a better player now than when I was at 24"

Delusional. His running shots are crap nowadays compared to 24.

Even if he is better tactical player than 10 yrs ago, he got punished by faster and stronger players.
