re: Tennis Discussion Thread
Murray was shocking yesterday. First 7 games he looked great and had Federer on the ropes. Then he just looked to stop caring and threw it away. Best Federer has played since Wimbledon though. Sucks that Murray sucked after Federer's first break because Murray playing Federer at that level would have been great to see. Murray wont be on Djokovic's level consistently until he starts finding ways to step his game up when he's losing and not playing his best. Against Djokovic and Federer this week he's looked deflated and pretty average when he's gone behind. Speaking of which Djokovic is insane at refusing to die. Great match between him and Del Potro. Love to see Del Potro expand the top 4 to a top 5 next year. He's good enough, just gotta add some consistency to his game and do it at the Slams.
Djokovic/Federer should be great if the same Federer that played the 2nd set vs Murray turns up. If the Federer from the rest of the week does then Djokovic will take it as comfortably as a win vs Federer can realisticly be. Going for Djokovic. Hopefully in 3 rather than 2.
