He's done it again: Simon Reed "It’s inconceivable that Nadal won’t win French"

Federer and Murray will clean up in 2012

Right from the outset I was pretty sure that Roger Federer would win the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2.

And with Murray not fit, that was it: the way was clear for Federer.

As for Novak Djokovic? Well, it's been fascinating watching him over the last month or so. I have a theory that I'm happy to repeat to anybody who'll listen that Djokovic could well have peaked, and the rest of his career will be downhill from here. :spit:

Rafael Nadal has simply not played at his true level all year, even in winning the French Open. At Roland Garros he was far from at his best, but somehow he found a way to win despite that -- yet before that, and since, he's struggled with his timing and not looked the same player he was last year. In London he looked ill - was ill, in fact - and it caps a tough season.




If that proves to be the case, Federer and Murray must surely mop up 2012 between the two of them.


so thats Fed and Muzza finished in 2012, Nadal winning 3 GS and Nole winning 1

Re: He's done it again: Simon Reed

And talk about damning Federer with faint praise besides. In Simon's World there would only have been only one winner if the Mighty Muzzah had've been fit, so lucky you Rog that he wasn't. :yeah: :rolleyes: Last time out wasn't he saying that we shouldn't read too much into Federer's late season form? He speaks so much shit you need a couple of doggy bags to clean up everytime you read one of his pieces.

Re: He's done it again: Simon Reed

Such a Fedtard. :lol: :lol:

Federer, for his part, never really went away. He was overtaken by Nadal when the Spaniard enjoyed his moment in the sun, and Djokovic has blown everyone away in his amazing 2011.

Throughout all that Federer's level has remained pretty much the same over the last few years, though he did have a poor 2010. His tennis has been superb this year, and when you analyse it he was really only a few points away from picking up a Grand Slam or two this season.

Okay, so he's not what he was in 2006 or 2007, but the fact remains that as the year turns he is the best tennis player in the world. There's a distinct possibility - a probability, actually - that he'll win one or two Grand Slams next season, and if he does he'll likely become world number one again. Frankly, I'm amazed to be saying that, but there's no doubt that he enters 2012 as the clear favorite.

2012 is over.

AO and USO to Djokovic.
RG and Wimby to Nadal.

Thanks to all fans. That was a great season.

Re: He's done it again: Simon Reed

Reed may not be wrong about Djokovic and Nadal. Nadal´s season after the US Open was disastrous, his game at WTF was the worst he´s played in years.
Djokovic also showed nothing after the US Open, it was all injuries and lack of motivation. I´m sure his injury was real, but he didn´t show a lot of heart, either.

So how they will recover and prepare for 2012 is anybody´s guess. Federer is the only one who seems healthy and motivated. As for Murray, I´d say Federer winning a calendar year Grand Slam is more likely than Murray winning even one Slam.

Re: He's done it again: Simon Reed

Ahahaha :lol: Nadal/Djokovic have won the last 7 slams, Federer wins WTF with half the field sick and injured, and Murray wins Tokyo just after a brutal US Open final for Rafa, and all of a sudden those two will clean up the slams :haha:

Not just win one or two slams, noooo, mr. Reed only deals in absolutes. What an idiot

Re: He's done it again: Simon Reed

As always Simon is getting way too ahead of himself, however, it isn't the say there is no merit here. Murray did play his most consistent season in terms of the slams and he actually managed to defeat the best player of the season unlike Nadal. As always, he just needs to get over that last hurdle at the slams and he can surely pick up a title at any of the 4 slams honestly. It is still very poor to say such a thing because this is clearly not the first time he has been hyped and this is honestly an even more poor time to hype him up considering that Tokyo and Cincinnati were his only saving grace and they certainly don't necessarily translate into slam success.

Federer on the other hand, well it is Federer, you never know what he is capable of. It does irk me to hear people say slams are impossible for him to win at this point. I mean look how much in shape he still is at the end of the season as he appeared to be by far the freshest player and he played virtually the same amount of matches compared to Djokovic/Nadal. Sure you can claim that Djokovic/Nadal are much more exhausted since they played in more finals, but Federer pretty much played just as many matches/finals 2004-2007 and he certainly didn't look as exhausted as Novak and Rafa.. Plus as Simon pointed out, he was very close to getting a title. Djokovic was just too good at Australia and the US Open, and he choked at Wimbledon but he certainly had his chances at Roland Garros against Rafa. I mean that is his most difficult slam and his most difficult opponent, yet he played very well despite the circumstances, so there is no reason why he can't pick up more.

Re: He's done it again: Simon Reed

Simon Reed is right here. Djokovic and Nadal are playing like rubbish and they look like they're fading/burning out. Murray and Federer will win most of the tournaments. Nadal and Djokovic will slip and fall. I'm looking forward to it.
