Sad, sad, sad. The Great Man was an idiot letting Haas beat him.

The problem is he won't get enough matches practice.

Backhand very rusty today. Haas took full advantage. Fed has a long way to go. Hopefully he gets more match practice in Halle.

In practice it's all about the individual shots and you come to play your first official match and it's almost an extension to the practice season until you start to tune and connect back to winning strategy etc.
 
He had about 12 break points converted 3 and had match point in the TV of the second set.
 
He will be again at risk losing in Halle to players that played many matches.

True. But I suspect he'll hang around and practice hitting with some of the guys?

Losing to a semi-retired 39 year old... there goes out of the window his
desperately preserved aura and confidence. LOL

Who also happens to be a damn good grasscourt player. And a young 39 year old, whose career has been continuously hampered by injuries. So no, nothing goes out of the window.

And a real hunk too. Out of the window without a doubt. If he doesn't
win Halle everyone and their dog will be smelling blood...

Just like losing to Thiem in Rome crushed Nadal's confidence at the FO, hmm?

I don't think he will win Halle. I hope he gets two matches there.

1) Still I think Haas will win.
 
2) He is the male Steffi!

Yes, just look at the list of parallels: (1) both are German (2)both are blond (3) both won won over 20 slams...
 
Well--both are German anyway.

She turns 48 today!
You wouldn't believe that considering how beautiful she still is!!
 
Live long and prosper, Steffi!

It massively different playing on grass, it's much lower and takes a while to get used to, Nadal being sensibly careful with that! Also Murray will be playing so that a tough one.

Interesting how he loves Whisper's loony contortions of logic only when they elevate ol' Clayfeet.

You missed Agassi.
 
Btw it's common decency, in case of a tie, to list in
chronological order and with empty spaces to get perspective on
gaps. Your view of presenting is incomprehensible.

This is your list of Wim/USO greats in a true and proper way.
 
 
 
12 Sampras, Federer
11
10
09
08
07 McEnroe, Connors
06
05 Borg, Djokovic
04 Becker, Edberg, Nadal
03 Murray, Agassi, Lendl
 
 
 
Interestingly, Wim and USO title would place Djokovic at third
open era, ahead of McEnroe, just behind big two, Sampras and
Federer. Quite a leap from his current mediocre placement.

> Why not 7. It's an awesome number. You develop the 7 year itch after the 7 year. Besides Borg, MCenore and Wilander flaked out before the 8th full year on tour.
 
I see, so in order to degrade their status we choose number 7.
Not very smart.

Degrade their status? Do you know basic math? If I include 8th year Borg, MCeNroe and Wilander suffer

Hahaha ... You never stop trying :)
 
But Sampras is still the third, did you fail to come with a
formula to push him ahead of Nadal and Sampras?
