Not just was Carreno's shot down SP in by a CM, Djokovic's next at-net pass clipped the tape and stayed on his side.



I felt like Djokovic had quite some luck with the necessary margins going his way 2018 WB, 2019 WB, 2020 AO... that and the whole arrogance of his fanbase, I felt like something was coming back to him.

Something was bound to happen and interrupt the fairy-tale.

Good fortune balances out. Every tennis player has had things go for them and against them. I don't see the point of kicking others when they are down. It was Federer being kicked last last year, now it's Djoker. I suppose we have a number of childish posters on here, whose life seems to be determined by whether their favourite player has won or not. I can understand teenagers behaving like that, but not if you are 20 and above.

To be fair, unless the ball that hit the net cord just dribbled over, PCB would have gotten there in plenty of time to make a good shot. He was already midcourt and moving forward as soon as he saw the ball hit the top of the tape, from what I see in the video Budadii provided.

Yeah, it feels in retrospect like it was destined to happen.

Maybe he would have been Covid-DQed before the final as predicted.

Who really know what would have happened?

I had picked Thiem to get his first major here, even if he had to play Djoker. I honestly feel Djoker was never going to win this event. I would have preferred Thiem to beat one of the big 3 to get his first major, but a major is a major. I don't think gloating about Djoker's demise is worth while.

I wish someone can do a super slow-mo enhanced blow-up of the first shot, since I think Hawkeye or whatever you call it missed that shot, since it appears to me to be 1 or 2 cm out.
