re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Fuck!!!

Federer choked pretty badly in the last few games. He should have served it out in the second set. Brilliant point from Djokovic on the match point, he deserved to win but Federer should have taken the 2nd set.

The tie-break was the deciding game imo. It was really close, both players played really good in the tie-break.

Shame it didn't go to a 3rd set. It would have been better.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

and it had nothing to do with Djokovic being out of this world and then adding another dimension to that on the really big points. He's astonishingly good on normal points but he's an absolute beast on major turning points. Yeah Federer should have served it out but serving the set out against Djokovic is a really tough ask even for Federer. Certainly wasn't a bottle job. Losing a set you were serving for doesn't automatically equal bottle job unless you've unforced errored every point.

Yep, humongous choke from Roger which is a shame. But queue everyone writing Roger off as too old and on the decline again now as they do every single year, and once again he'll prove everyone wrong and win another slam or the tour finals next year.

It's the fact who lost two service games in a row and made a number of UE's in those two games and massively dropped his intensity levels, that is a definite choke.

As I say though, Djokovic deserved to win in the end no matter what way you look at it.

Djokovic was good in those points but Federer lost two service games in a row with a few UE. You don't see that often from Federer.

Federer stopped playing well after Djokovic broke back while Djokovic started to play better and won the set.

Djokovic deserved to win in the end though, I am not denying that.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Great match. They saved the best til last.

Federer started out in beast mode, and i thought he'd go on to win the first. But Nole is never down, and broke back. Some of the tennis in that set was amazing. Got the right result with a tiebreak at the end.

The 2nd, Federer started well again. I thought he'd take it from set point, but again Nole showed he's never out of it. He Fought back and deserved the win. Proved why he is the best in the world.

I think the final presentation woudl be better if all the players who competed were on court too. I don't know why i think that, it just opped into my mind

Tsonga will have a bad year next year and will drop out of the top 10.

Shvedova will continue to prove why she is the best player in the world at choking.
