Well Dallas, at least you are honest about it . I do expect Novak to win many slams. Why not. It's all good.
If Novak def. Tsonga he will have something like 5165 points. Rafa has 5980 and Roger 6630.
1. Federer 6630
2. Nadal 5980
3. Djokovic 5165
I mean this is crazy. These 3 are the most dominant players in Tennis history I think. Anyone?
this is what the men`s tennis has been missing. if we can get one more in the mix here, it really gets interesting.
For some of you.... Not for me. Wonder why? I think tennis has been very interesting for the past 4 years!
Yeah I'd be saying the same about the WTA Tour for the last 4 years if Maria had the 4 years Roger has Although maybe when the titles don't come as often you cherrish them and get so much more emotional because its not somehting you expect to happen 3 times a year that sort of thing, although i'm certainly not turning down another 2 Slam titles for Maria this year
That's what I mean. If Nadal had been dominating for the past 4 years, I'm sure as heck that Herc would not see these years as being 'boring; or if Djokovic had won almost all the slams the past 2 or 3 years, you know his fans would be on cloud nine and would want that domination to last for years! Or if Murray won 4 or 5 or more slams the past 2 or 3 or 4 years, you know sid wouldn't want anything to change and would say those were the best years in tennis! So it's all in perspective if it's your favorite doing the domination. You don't want anything to change at all and those years certainly would not have been boring in tennis for you. And you certainly wouldn't say that player (your favorite) losing would be best for tennis because it's your favorite losing.
So I can understand all the other fans wanting new players in the mix and saying it's good for tennis, but selfishly, for me - that's the last thing I want to happen!
Glad your boy won Alex!!
This is what we have now.
1) Fed trying to hold on and show he is still the clear favorite.
2) Nadal, still the clay court king, getting his points and trying to make some noise on hards.
3) Novak, wants to prove this is for real and trying to make a move on the rankings.
4) Nalby, don't forget he has some serious skills. Was derailed by back problems. Let's see if he has some commitment.
5) Now Tsonga, he knows he can play with some of the best, consistency is what he needs.
6) A few others are making some noise, Murray and Gasquet have had flashes of great tennis.
The first 2 show no signs of improving but have great games already and win where there supposed to usually (consistency).
The last 4 can improve somewhere, mentally, shotmaking, or consistency.
Djokovic has become more dangerous as he has gained confidence against the best, he fears no one and shouldn't as a top player.
Fed has it all still, consistency, no fear at anytime during a match(tipsarevic).
Only problem is being match ready( no sickness or injury).
