    The next set proved me right too. I think Fed just gave up the set, and maybe it wasn't a bad strategy. I think Rafa will still win this, but he's not going to get a repeat of that set.

    The only reason I watch tennis is for Nadal. If he isn't playing then I have no reason to watch.

    I'm still picking Djokovic to win btw, but I'm less certain than I was before, simply because of how well Roger played today.

    Surely you're curious. Two top players. Federer's chance to literally end the GOAT discussion. It's Sunday and you'll have nothing else to do

    I am absolutely curious. I will be checking the score periodically but I'm not going to sit down and watch the match. I can only do that when Nadal is playing.

    Decent odds for Nole, especially since he's been far and away the best player on tour over the past year

    I already raided what was left in my mother's purse to drop some on Nadal. While I'm pretty confident Djoker will win, I won't be betting on it.

    Djoker is already the GOAT. He's been consistently better than the other two since he became a truly elite player, and is also the most consistent across all surfaces.

    Federer had already racked up 16 major titles before Djokovic got his 2nd (Djokovic won one Australian Open in 2008 but wouldn't turn into a great until 2011) and Nadal 9. Nadal hasn't won a Wimbledon or an Australian since 2010 and Fed hasn't won a US or French since 2009. Djoker's dominance turned them into respective specialists while he won everywhere.

    Since 2011, he beats them both 2/3 times he plays them.

    Nadle fought the good fight, Federer at 37 is still a beast

    Longevity is only one aspect of greatness. Djokovic was better than Federer when they were both in their primes - that counts for more.

    If Djokovic beats Federer, he's only 4 grand slams away from him anyway. He'll be a good shot to overtake his career tally.
