    Djoker always places his serves well, especially when facing break points. It's always been one of his super powers. It was frustrating af to watch when he'd easily save bps against Fed.

    Alcaraz grew up mid-match. He dialed it back and played a steadier brand of tennis after that disastrous 1st set. Actually tried to construct points instead of just trying to hit through Djoker. It also helped that Djoker committed some uncharacteristic unforced errors. But that's aging for your.
    I agree. But I think part of the thinking was due to Alcaraz feeling a little tired and then doing some splits and remembering his cramps. He stopped going after every damn ball and just played it a bit safer. This is growing up. Alcaraz is a much better athlete than any of the top players. Its all about the head. And getting a more consistently placed serve which is a part of playing smart.

    But then again he says tennis is fun beyond winning. so if he wants to put in a show while losing, Im okay with that because his shot making ability is ungodly. Good entertainment.

    Probably the best ever. ^ Also checks the box for believing in witchcraft.

    Bjorn Borg will never be surpassed in frequency of les won however.
    He retired at 25 yo.
    6 French Opens, 5 Wimbledons Completely different surfaces and he handled them both with ease. No player has shown this type of dominance in such a short career.

    Back in that day a higher % of people across the world participated in Tennis also. But not a wider number of countries. US, France, Australia, Spain, GB had a huge % of people playing.

    Longevity Joker.
    Most talented possibly Borg. Those numbers are incredible. Watching old you tubes he was as fast as it gets. Would have been a great Short Stop.
    He strung his rackets much tighter than any other player because his ground strokes were so powerful. Most players could not even hit with his rackets.
    Sampras was also very dominant and got bored. But he was good only on fast surfaces. Not an all-rounder.

    If the Joker pulls this off it may be one of his best wins

    He beat Alcaraz in cinci pretty recently, but alcaraz is looking damn good in this grand slam in the tougher side of the bracket.

    The young American with his back against the wall made it interesting but the GOAT purely and cleanly put the upstart in his place

    Very anxious for Novak on Sunday. Meddy already beat him at US Open before.

    Man you know how to take a great tennis player and make him look like a moron.

    The high bouncing fast court like the US open surface is really good for the taller players imo.
    Joker beat them all anyway. Alcaraz could not get it done. Carlos might be like Borg and do best on Clay and grass. Slow surface with lots of sliding shots, and a fast low bouncing court.

    He’s also got the best peak ever in 2011 and 2015, did it against much harder compe ion than Federer had in 2005-2007 when he had his peak.
