Absolutely phenomenal match, Wawrinka was God-Federer like at times, but Djokovic proved why he's the best in the world. Has to be one of the best matches i've ever seen.

Damm, fuck!


Disappointed with the result, but still, what a fucking epic match. Really enjoyed it. Gotta feel sad for Wawrinka, he was really fantastic, never seen him play that well before.

@NJ88 he plays Berdych, really hope Berdych plays well, he could be able to beat Djokovic because Djokovic may suffer from fatigue.

Berdych only plays well against Federer

Epic match. Who would have thought that it would go down to the wire?

Hopefully Federer & Tsonga win tonight, so another good QF battle

No excuses from him.

Djokovic/Wawrinka. Incredible incredible match. Last point summed it up perfectly. Wawrinka beasting with his backhand, Djokovic defying logic to return clear winners and just edging Wawrinka out by the finest of margins. Sucks for Stan to get nothing from the match in the end after that performance. 5-2 up in the second, he shouldn't have lost it 7-5 though. Turned off completely at that point which really cost him. Was a delight when he was on though. Djokovic is #1 for a reason as he continues to show. Incredible resilience and fitness. Any other player playing Berdych less than 48 hours after THAT into the second week of a Slam I'd say they had no chance. Djokovic is super human though so I fully expect him to still come through. Would have been Murray's title to throw away if Djokovic had gone out on top of Del Potro.

I think you could use Djokovic-Wawrinka as an example as to why courts are too slow. Wawrinka was hitting some bombs, and they weren't getting through. Of course, some of it is down to insane defending from Djokovic, but even on Rebound ace surface, those shots would have gone for winners.

This is another example from last year...



Berdych was hitting some bombs, and Nadal was just retreiving. Although Nadal is a great defender, if the courts were faster then Berdych would have won that point. The best players (with the exception of Fed) are all primarily defensive players who have great defensive skills. Attacking players aren't getting a break because they have no chance of hitting through them because the courts are too slow. To become a top player now, you have to be a great mover rather than a great shot maker. Adding to that, the slow hard courts are bad for the players health and fitness. The long rally's and grinding points are bound to take their affect on them (see Nadal), and there is an increasing chance of a player getting injured (see Serena hurting her ankle earlier in the tournament).

I'm not saying that all courts should be fast, because that would then favour the attacking players. But there should be a fair balance instead of most courts being slow. Hard should be Medium or range between fast & slow, Grass should be fast, and Clay should be slow. Therefore neither attack or defense has an advantage, and there is less of a chance of players getting injured

No coincidence that faster courts would suit most of your favourite players then?

Would benefit Tsonga definately, but Del Po & Kei probs not as much.

It's nothing to do with my favourite players though. The courts are too slow. There should be a variety rather than having most courts fast or most courts slow, so no style has a big advantage in the grand scheme of things.

Do you agree or do you think the slow courts are good for the sport?

Edit* Thinking about it, it would benefit Kei in a way, because faster courts might decrease his injury issues

Damm was pulling for Wawrinka, by far the match of the tournament.
