i expected rafa to play well. but stan looks feeble. no pace, no
corners, no painting lines.
 
perhaps you can only play as well as your opponent allows, but i'd
think stan would at least attempt it.
 
glad to see #s 10 and 15.

Imo that's the key - you can only play as well as your opponent allows.
Rafa is making Stan look worse than he really is. He can make him look
like Jesus Christ by feeding him balls in his wheelhouse.

Monumental numbers - 10 FO is mind blowing.

Think 1 game short thanks to Halep wetting the bed?

Yes, three more slams than anyone else's best at any other slam.
Whisper <beaver999@ozemail.com>: Jun 12 12:55AM +1000

I thought Rafa would win something like 64 75 63.
 
I guess if Stan can make this 7-5 or 7-6 I'll be close, but he's already
broken him 1st game of 3rd & cruising along.

Nope, you were wrong about Rafa's form (everyone could see he was at
peak and would roll through this FO), and now just 3 slams behind Fed
with FIVE years of age on his side, he has every chance in the world to
pass him.
 
Heck, Nadal could win W and USO and be at 17 slams just by the end of
this summer.

18 is uncatchable, so is 7 w, 5 us opens in a row, Fed is the greatest! Tier 1 with Budge, Tilden and Laver, Borg
Tier 2 is Rafa, Stimpy, Gorgo, Novak, Rosewall!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Fed is grooving his grass tactics as we speak.
 
He'll be tough to beat there. Maybe Kyrgios will go nuclear & hit every
line to beat him?

Guys, I am truly amazed at Rafa's health and the viability of his body at this age. The over all management of his body has certainly bucked the odds given his history. Just incredible! Well done to his team and his doctors. :))

Stan making nadal look 10x better with his shit playing. Fed would have cleaned his clock already.

Can he lose 3?
Whisper <beaver999@ozemail.com>: Jun 12 12:36AM +1000

If this was Halep, Radwanska or Stosur leading it would at best be a
50-50 proposition of them winning.
 
Rafa is a real champion so it's 99% certain he goes on with the job.
 
: )

This was always on the cards after his disappointing collapse in AO
final. He wasn't going to leave anything to chance here.

Amazing stat given the number of matches he's played on clay in his
career.
 
Can Stan make history?
 
I'll be generous & give him 3% chance.
