I dont know, I think it is possible to have a prolonged peak that goes on for some time.

The point is though even at 30, I dont think he is done yet at all in terms of winning titles (Far from it in fact) and is still going to be a major thorn in the sides of Nadal and Djokovic for a while yet.

re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

I'm a bit surprised Federer is back at number one. Before this Djokovic and Nadal had shared the last 9 grand slams and faced each other consecutively in the final in each of the previous 4. I don't put much scope in rankings though (remember when Serena held 3 slams and was behind slamless Dinara Safina who had just been demolished 6-0 6-1 or something by Venus at Wimbledon that year), slams are what matters. I expect Nadal and Djokovic to go back to dominating after this tournament, though that's not to say Federer hasn't got more slam finals and victories in him. Poor Murray, he played his heart out today but was ultimately beaten by the best Wimbledon (i.e. grass court) player of all time. After the break in the last set and with Federer playing such sublime stuff, he just looked mentally done.

Poor old Murray might never win a Slam. You've got to feel sorry for him given how close he always gets, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't find it a little bit funny too.

The G.O.A.T.



The school of tennis by Roger. Sure, I was afraid after the 1st Set, but it was a Christmas in July for Murray anyway. Federer is a fucking grass genius. His mindset is unparalleled. The best of all time.


Oh, and I fucking hate this bitch:




Btw, I really felt sorry for Murray when he was doing the interview, finally a human, touching side of him.

re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

I was surprised Murray even won a set, even if I was supporting him and I thought he had the upper hand right up till 2 points before the end of the second set. But Federer showed his brilliance yet again from that point and Murray got fustrated. Federer is THE greatest Wimbledon champ and grass court player ever and he seems such a nice guy too. Great final and Murray, although gutted, should hold his head high.

I like Judy... but your right, it is shocking that you see her supporting her son during matches, especially in grand slam finals...
