How can people call this man the goat when goat is something you associate with mental toughness? I mean Nadal is pretty dumb but having the attention span of a goldfish has helped him out through the years
Another thing, Fedbrain calls out players that react positively after winning a point but has no qualms about bitching after losing important points does he? Poor poor Fedbrain
Federer served very well, but wasn't really hurting Cilic enough in the rallies.
Much of the match was very close, but at the end of all three sets Cilic gets tight as a drum and implodes. He only won a set because of a bizarre 11-deuce hold at the end of the second, that freed him up for the tiebreak.

A messy match overall. But Cilic played pretty well, hit with good depth from the second set onward and Fed had to dig very, very deep to get that deciding break. Oh well. These kinds of wins are good for your confidence

I am pretty certain that if you put masks of lower ranked players on top5's faces, and keep their identites secret, he'd win 8/10 matches
but as soon as he sees that these ubermen are on the other side of the court he starts playing like a moron
to be fair, here in canada he's been playing like that since the first match, but still...
We will continue to simulate the season with the second Grand Slam of 2020 - Roland Garros. The draw for the events will be completely randomized. Qualifiers are randomized as well and the WCs are chosen by me.
ALL-NEW - You may only vote ONCE EVERY TWO HOURS this week AND matches are best of...
Part of the reason for Djokovic and Federer's major success is their ability to be basically injury free. Its not an ability, maybe its genetics, training, etc. Regardless Djokovic and Federer have enjoyed probably 12+ years on the tour, practically injury free.
Federer had his back issues and...
I mean, the year 2020 in tennis is really something else.
According to local prosecutors, Basilashvili assaulted his ex-wife in a country house near Tbilisi on May 21st. He was arrested. The court today determined he could be released on bail of ~$31K. The main hearing is scheduled on July...
Wertheim really overstepped himself by challenging Djokovic on vaccine position and water quality interest. Bad look by Wertheim.
