A very good point. Gasquet wouldn't have stood a chance of winning with his passive, reactive game if Federer hadn't been physically below-par. Those umpteen forehand and backhand winners straight off the return and off the ground, including on matchpoint, were obviously winners because Federer's feet were no longer getting him to the ball. Sad.
Yes. :worship:

If Roger is tired and he loses that's his fault. Being tired is no excuse to lose. Almost everyone in the tour is tired with their schedule and Roger does not even play every week. The one thing that really pisses me of when I watch tennis matches is when those commentators attribute Federer's difficult matches to him being rusty and explanations that will not blemish the divinely pure talent of the great ROGER FEDERER. This of course leave no credit to his opponent. The press would then ask the opponent 'How in the world you made the match to difficult for Federer?' The opponent would then bow to the haloed Federer and say "Federer had a bad day". "He was so rusty I could have use WD-40 on him".

And why would he even be mentally tired I thought he's the king of that mental thing. Everyone has a bad day,You Federer fans-the leech of his success-should be happy that it does not happen to him to often. And about his feet bothering him too much at AO. He should have called me, I could have amputate them for free.

:rolleyes: Get a Grip and come down

Mainly he has 4 streaks now:

1) 31 matches unbeaten streak
2) 24 matches unbeaten streak on finals
3) 40 matches unbeaten streak on hard courts
4) 36 matches unbeaten streak on grass courts

According to you which is harder to beat? Also name the players that you
believe will end these streaks. Here is my opinion:

1) Rafa
2) Rafa
3) Rafa
4) Alien:)

As you see the hardest to beat according to me is grass court streak.
What are your thoughts?
4) Jaden Agassi or Christian Sampras. And of course if Hewitt would have procreated with Kim, baby Hewitt. But now that Lleyton is having a baby with Bec, the only thing we can expect from baby Hewitt is that he/she has the acting talent of Lleyton and/or the tennis talent of Bec. :devil:

Clever work there to remove that classy gem at the end of your post - which, for the benefit of others, said "Why did he complain about his feet at the AO, he should have come to me, I could have amputated them for free. :wavey: "
Did Roger complain about his feet during AO? I don't remember. But I do remember him talking about it either after Miami or when he pulled out of Rome saying that had he beat Safin he didn't know if he would've been able to play the finals because his feet were bothering him so much.

Don't be disrespectful Gasquet is 12 in the world at 19, he's not a fluke and he's very talented...
Yes, I would say there's no shame in losing to the likes of Safin, Gasquet and Nadal.

Also Nadal has very good numbers despite his young age:

1) 24 matches unbeaten streak (if he had skipped grass court season it
could be 40!!!)
Yes but if we could choose what to omit then I would say that if Roge were to omit RG, his streak would be 50+

Doesn't work like that. Roge has his streak despite playing all the slams and al except 2 TMSamong big tournamentes

It's streaks like this that show people why he is number one and will continue to be number one, that final streak is unbelievable, I don't think people realize how good that is!

and that his 2 defeats were in the semis. had he faced safin or nadal in those 2 slam finals, i think it's fair to say that there was a good chance that his streak would be broken.

The unmentioned one would probably be his 122 straight matches without a straight-sets defeat, which might also be quite tough to beat (though the clay season probably provides the best chance to beat him in straights). And, cecilija and megadeth, winning streaks don't look at 'what if's' or 'luck.' If he had faced Safin or Nadal in a final? At Wimbledon - probably both Safin and Nadal's worst surface (though I do believe both can play)? At the US Open - Safin was injured, so I suppose you can say that was a 'what if', but then again, mentally... And Nadal was rightly beaten by Blake (I wanted to see a Federer-Nadal final, too, though :sad: )... At the Australian Open and French Open - you don't know how Federer would have performed in a Slam final (we all know his performance in finals are typically better than earlier rounds). Australian Open, perhaps it would have been around 50/50. French Open, yeah, Nadal could have beaten him if their form in this year's semi-final had carried onto a final, but... "Could have's" are tough to judge.
