yeah real tough. i can see how one could almost go into mourning and vast depression over this. how many wimbledons, u.s. opens, australian opens, and masters cups has he won in a row now? his only rival of any note the last 2-3 years has winning titles 10 months at a time. how dominant has he been for the last 4 years.Well if you think that Roger is so vastly superior to every player out there and will always have his 'A' game and always annihilate his opponents, then his draw will always appear EASY to you, no matter what. I'm a little more realistic than that. And I never mourn or get depressed over a damn draw. Like I said, such is life, you play the draw you are dealt. Geez...
fed`s game is as vastly superior to those around him as living are to the dead.
Of course, the way you guys (Herc and Kittens) are going on about how easy Roger has it just means that if Roger doesn't play perfect tennis and win his 13th GS...then we'll get to listen to you guys going on and on about how pathetic Roger is. If that happens, then his past 12 GS and his domination won't mean anything. I can hear it already...
there is nobody here who shares your brand of realism here. check the above posts again. kittens spells it out.
and you best wake up and smell the coffee. i am hard on my player--nadal--but never on fed. guess why? the guy is just too good relative to his competition.
here i will repeat it again since you seem to be having trouble with english today: he is the most complete player in the game. he is most dominant in the game. he is the most dominant ever relative to his competition.
he has won 5 wimbledons in a row
he has won 4 u.s. opens in a row
he has won 3 australian opens and the last 2 in a row
he has won 4 masters cups and the last 2 in a row
he is #1 for the last 4 years in a row
he is only 26
he is healthy and fit and has no injuries
he is surrounded by players that he owns completely
so easy is his competition that he just skates to the finals where it is just a matter of formality.
his closest rival is nearly useless on hard courts now. once again he is on a 10 month/no title plan.
in his 12 slam wins in the finals, he has been pushed only once. he has made a complete mockery of men`s game. he just cannot find a formidable rival anywhere.
translation: he simply towers over his field at 75% of the slams. the new surface here makes him even more formidable.
how dominant is he? i did not bother to watch the u.s. open final after the first set and instead went on a bike ride. i was not the only one. tele revenues and ratings, worldwide, were down significantly as lot of people did not think djokovic would have much of a chance. they were right.
please. save the paranoi for somebody else. he has #13 in the bag and he loses 1 set at best and that is pushing it. now that is being realistic and calling it like it is.
