    All three are the GOAT to be honest. Absolutely phenomenal from Fed and Novak there.

    It's wild that Fed leads in majors and has a losing record individually against both the others. It's been quite a top 3

    If/once Novak passes Fed’s tally, he’s the undisputed #1 for me. Nadal is third solely because his dominance on clay really skews his numbers...despite still being so great on the other surfaces.

    1a, 1b, 1c situation :crylaugh:

    His peak was before theirs - quite considerably so in Djokovic's case.

    Forgot how long the last set in the Roddick match in '09 was, 16-14

    I remember feeling so bad for him and don't get me wrong I love Roger

    I legit cried at the end of that match. His only break of serve all day was to lose the title.

    Tiebreakers all went Djokovic's way eh!!!

    I get the scheduling issues that could be caused by the two games clear rule for 5th set. Perhaps leave it in place for only the final? I want to see the two best players battle it out.

    On seperate note; slightly gutted the wimbledon ballot is going online. It's purely for selfish reasons as i have done the postal ballot / tennis club ballot and managed to attend 5 of the past 6 years. Putting it online will probably make odds of a ticket slimmer for me im guessing.

    Speaking of Andy Roddick - he did a stint at commentating at Wimbledon with BBC maybe 2 or 3 years ago. He was phenomenal. Funny, insightful, engaging. Never done it again - gutted!

    You gotta win the right points. Novak played the score all day.

    Before I die, I gotta see a night match on Arthur Ashe...preferably a Williams sister/Federer/Djokovic. So next year.

    Maria is playing an absolutely fantastic match and Serena is still up 6-1, 4-1. Absurd.

    I've seen all four of them on Ashe over the past few years (at least three at night?), and it's pretty electric.

    And what the hell is going on with Federer tonight? He's missing so badly and is already down a set.

    This potapova gauff match is strangely poetic

    Watching Halep go down to a basic serve and a volley strategy was incredible.

    As a Halep fan, that was not incredible.

    I have zverev in my work pools. Guy has seeding of 6 but all his rounds have been 5 setters!

    Would rather be watching Wawrinka than this clown's doubles match

    But ya know, ratings I'm sure. Gotta tune in to see if he'll act like a baby
