Fed in the final. Again.

Greatest sportsman of our time. Federer is kind of like 5-time Masters Champion Tiger, if 5-time Masters Champion Tiger had kept his shit together and never ran over a fire hydrant etc.
Word up.

I was also happy to see Caroline Wozniacki (sp) finally win a major. She has had the unfortunate fate of being considered a 2nd rate but attractive player. Now we all know she is a good player and attractive. No Serena, of course, but competitive with the best.

Disagree. I think Caroline is more attractive. To each his own. :nope

By the way, this morning I do not know who has won the men's final. For I am flashing back to the 80s and beyond: I am suspending reality via tape delay. Last night before bed I made sure to change the TV channel and close all tennis related websites on the computer. Currently I am hermetically sealed off from the whole world of tennis. The only tennis information being allowed into my home is this ESPN tape delay broadcast of the match. If anyone makes a post here, don't even bother putting it in a spoiler because I'm not even going to open the thread. That's how little I trust you knuckleheads to not spoil this match for me. Last year's final turned out to be one for the ages and I missed it entirely. This year's was probably a dud, with a disappointing result. Oh well, we shall see over the next couple hours!

TRULY MAGNIFICENT

Last year when Roger Fed won two slams, I thought it was an extended fluke. I was wrong. The modern tennis game changed, it belongs to Fed again.

New forum-wide rule effective immediately. All specific references to the great Roger Federer must be as "the Maestro". "Roger Federer the Maestro" is also acceptable. Compliance is not optional. Don't make me wake up the auto-correct bot.

Is RFTM acceptable? Or some other snazzy short-cut?

I admittedly am not a huge tennis fan currently, but I know that it's a young man's sport. I didn't realize he was 36 ( I thought maybe 33 or something). That's pretty amazing that he's world #1 at 36. I'm kind of sad that I didn't keep up with tennis during his reign. Not sure that I would've had time for it.

WAS a young man's sport

It's not just Fed. Right now there is not one player under 30 who owns a Grand Slam title. Nobody in who's in their twenties currently has even threatened to win one. :puke OK so technically Cilic is still in his twenties, but only til September.

It's hilarious that there are literal factories in Florida, Eastern Europe and god knows where else where they try to engineer the perfect tennis player and still, they cannot make a dent in old ass Federer's armor. It takes all-time greatness to take down Federer. Unless you are also headed for the tennis hall of fame, just give up. Fed just won another tour title yesterday in Europe, an absolutely routine beatdown, of one of the most touted of these twenty-somethings. :fkno

Big Sunday. 5-time Masters Champion Tiger, Inbee... and Federer Express :facepalm

I watched Fed's quarter and semifinals in which he schooled two guys who are several years away from car rental eligibility. He is now stepping on the throats of guys who are 1.5 generations younger. :facepalm

That said he faces one of his toughest ever foes in JuanMartinDelPotro in the final today.

I sometimes wonder if Federer (and other top pros) dump matches. I think the ATP requires participation in a certain number of events. So the big names will sign up for a fairly minor event, practice minimally and lose in an early round so they can go home and rest.

"The 36-year-old, who suffered a shock 3-6 6-3 7-6 (7-4) loss to world number 175 Thanasi Kokkinakis in Miami, ..."

Roger Federer has left Nike and now wears Uniqlo. Holy fuckin shit. That is kind of like 5-time Masters Champion Tiger showing up at the Masters wearing Old Navy. You know who else wears Uniqlo? The beefster. Adam Scott does too. So why the heck aren't you? The worst part is, this stuff is probably cheaper than what you are wearing right now.

Great final match coming up this afternoon, at something called the Northern and/or Southern and/or Western and/or Eastern Open. Of tennis. Obviously. Anyways it’s Federer and Djokovic. That prick. Great player but so annoying. After a big point, he always looks up at the crowd with such disdain, like “Hey, why you no love me? Like you love Roger? Novak just as good tennis as Roger!”

My time as a tennis fan is coming to an end if it hasn't already ended. Fed is fading and Serena Williams is a disgrace.

This goes way beyond one loser fan's disillusionment. Men's tennis is in ruins and it's only going to get worse. Right now there is not a male alive under the age of 30 who has won a "Grand Slam" tournament. Furthermore there is no young player in the world who even seems remotely capable of winning one. Now with Federer succumbing to age, Nadal and Djokovic will now split every Grand Slam title between them for the next 3-4 years. Men's pro tennis has a real problem--it has created a competitive arena populated almost entirely by dysfunctional, entitled spoiled brat pussies.

I fully expected a bloody battle between these two but I wake up to find out that Djokovic flat out abused Nadal, dispensed with him no different than one of those whiny blubbering tantrum-throwing zit-faced tour youngsters. As a Federer stan/fan I am glad that Nadal was "stopped" from gaining on the all-time slam record. Still as somewhat a Nadal fan I wince at the final scoreline. This is the kind of beatdown that leaves a permanent mark. :facepalm

Federer Nadal 39 coming at you this afternoon at 4 EST. While you're busy swooning over Rory McIlroy or Chesson Hadley or Jim Furyk or whoever, two legendary real athletes will square off in a real athletic contest.

The Maestro into the final of another top level tournament Miami. Fuckin shit. I'll be watching a tennis and most likely not a golf final Sunday. Stakes are high. Fed's opponent John Isner is a Trump guy.

All hail the Maestro. This was a big event. Djokovic was in the field; Nadal wasn't, but he's pretty much pfffft anyways. Hasn't beat the Maestro in years, and is declining sharply as of late. The Maestro on the other hand is still going strong. He is clearly over the hill, but on the other hand the end is not really in sight. Still winning events, still getting deep into majors, still beating all the zit-face hype newcomers. And because he still has fun doing this, why the hell would he even think about retiring. Pure nonsense.
