Yeah Anderson looks exhausted in the final making so many unforced errors, obviously his feet didn't moved properly at all.

And Djokovic is definitely back near his best, maybe it's not the big four as it was before but we have the big three now and that's a promise for an exiting future of the men's tennis I believe.

Too easy for Djoka in the end. Let's hope he keeps up that sort of form and can return to the top consistently.

Yeah agree Ed, I think that would make it more interesting at the top.

I think he's the only person with a positive record against both Federer and Nadal and that when we have in mind he breaks last from these in the top tennis and was always on the loosing side to them in his first senior years.So that record should speaks for itself,

I think that if Nadal was the Anderson opponent at the final the match would of Finnish even faster as we know the Spaniard showing no mercy against a weaker opposition but Djokovic is the man for the big matches.

So its the "perfect" French Open draw now with the top four seeds the only ones remaining for the semis. I can't see Federer knocking over Nadal on clay so its going to be a Nadal vs Djoka final isn't it?

I've not seen any of this year RG matches Ed, and I even didn't knew the scores(shame on me) so probably not the person who should make any forecasts...but Smile when it started I thought in the form Djokovic and Nadal entering the tournament and being 1 and 2 seeded...well that should be the final...not going to run away from that now.

In fact I hope Djokovic could defeat Nadal...but if Federer is capable of beating Nadal on clay...well..I won't be disappointment at all by that...just it's tough to believe he could do it.

Well see I kissed Djokovic with the death curse! It was easy for Nadal in the end like it usually is in this tournament. Thiem at least took a set but after that it looked like Nadal said well I've given the fans their money's worth, now I'm just going to end the match.

Ha...I don't think that's on you Ed, probably I could take the blame for kiss of death this time saying that Djokovic could beat Nadal...well OK let's split it 50/50 between us Smile

I saw the whole thriller at the semis between Thiem and Nole lasting for over 24h. and surely the playing conditions weren't normal because of that storming wind in day 1 but generally Djokovic's attitude was too negative while Thiem accepted it and in my opinion was the better player of the course of a 2 day match.
Anyway, I've been quite sure that whoever going to win that wouldn't be able to be equal to Nadal for more than 2-3 sets on the final, the Spaniard had a long rest meanwhile and that only added to his advantage in a match that he would of been a favorite anyway.

Hope that things would look different at Wimbledon.

It's been an amazingly exiting sporting day yesterday..isn't it, I could say one of the most exiting ones despite watching sport for the biggest part of my life really.

Djokovic - Federer was another spectacle although the cricket final was the top of the three for me.

I thought Djokovic didn't play nowhere near his best, not that decisive in the crucial moments as we use to seen him before and Federer played quite well for the biggest part but still unable to win it.

I've switched the channel to concentrate entirely on cricket when it was like 6-5 and 40/15 at the Federer serve in the last set because it was obvious the Swiss will win it....but surprise surprise like half an hour later I accidentally changed the channel again just to see it's 12-12 and they were about to play a tiebrack.

Never been a Federer fan(to say the least Smile ) but I kind feel for him the way he lost the match in three tiebreaks and Djoko(at least for me) not on top of his game, I really thought he will loose that.

Yeah I read that Federer won a lot more points than Djoka in the match, and obviously a few more games too. He had his chances though, with those two match points on serve. I'm not sure about the tie break at 12-12 in the fifth. I know they don't want the matches to go on forever but I think an exception could be made for the final!

Yeah I agree on the tiebreak subject Ed, I was surprised to see there's a tiebreak to be played at 12-12 cause I wasn't aware...and I wonder if it's just for Wimbledon or it's valid for RG and Australian open already...probably sooner or later they'll stick to US open tiebreak rules and I don't think it would be a big deal once the players have settled for it.

And you know what comes to my mind speaking of a tiebreak at 12-12...that's still been the longest in length final match at Wimbledon..like 5 hours or something..the women's final ended in about 50mins!!
And that's just for the final matches.

I don't argue women should get less prize money - just the opposite... but common...make them play 3 out of 5 at the GS (women's final arguably wouldn't last more than hour and a half with the form Halep showed anyway) but if they can't play 3/5 (for whatever reason that is unknown to me) I would be really considering make it men's matches 2 out of 3 if I was in the ATP board or something.

Don't get me wrong I love all the traditions but that just doesn't seems fair as it stands.
