OP is a Murray fan?
And all 10 on the list are unexpected one I suppose based on your logic. Thats why they made the list. Now I understand. Thank you.Oooh, we've touched a nerve with this thread, haven't we, Captain Thin-Skinned?
The point remains that Djokovic's win at Wimbledon 2019 against a 37-year-old Federer was the expected outcome.
Djokovic was 32 years old and #1 in the world and had a much easier SF.
It was hardly a momentous result, merely the expected one.
Sorry to Djokovic fans who might feel hard done by. Not intentional. Will be best ever in the end anyway
Thanks. But surely not so cool like all your insighful and unbiased comments on this forum. We are so lucky to have you here.Cool story, bro.
Karatsev story wouldn't have happened without the pandemic, that's for sure. He used the situation brilliantly to train without having to worry about results.Maybe some random guy in China catching a virus has also had a big effect on tennis
Obviously Djokovic has been a part of some really big matches and moments in tennis history. Sometimes you guys are a bit too sensitive about all of it. What can you expect when his own father talks crap about Federer like every single day? There's a thread up right now about it.For what, because Next Gen KIng did not praise Djokovic ^^
Be sure I am DEVASTATED when I read something nasty from muppets like him or you.
Except you are a muppet and he played the muppet with an agenda : trolling, attraction whoring, pleasing MTF global hate against Nole.
Karatsev 2021 is refreshing but far more insignificant so far than Zverev 2017 or Medvedev 2019 or of course Nole 2011, just brand new.
Need more time to confirm
If you put some distance, and even if NGK is right saying Tennis is not only Big 3, there are key moments in their rivalries which are quite crucial (1 2 3 are not ranks just to separate things) :
1) Nadal Djokovic Madrid SF 2009 3/6 7/6(5) 7/6(9)
Djokovic having huge leads in this match like 5/2 and loosing.
Both exhausted (because of Madrid and whole Clay season when they faced every Master 1000) in following FO and Federer winning his only FO title against Soderling.
IMO Soderling appeared a Giant in his match against Nadal not because playing super well but because Nadal being under par. Credit to him not to collapse or choke but he never confirmed despite playing two extra years so I am pretty sure I am right.
2) An Echo of this one is of course French Open 2013 SF with more or less the same situation even if more of a roller coaster.
Both those defeats after a huge lead destroyed IMO Nole's confidence on Clay if facing a 90+% Nadal.
3) Then of course 3 Matches (2 USO SF and 1 Wimbledon F) when Federer had match points and collapsed....
Considering his form at that time, Slam count would have been 22 or 23 which could have been enough to stay in front. what is 99.9% impossible now.
