    No, he really wouldn't. He was dire in that Tsonga match, absolutely dire.

    Annoyingly i think that if this were a final and either two played like they are, Fed would be winning.
    The only problem is that Fed would most likely be playing even worse.

    Ultimately, I think this has been a good French Open, but despite the Big 4, not because of it. All the best matches (Berdych-Monfils and Gasquet-Wawrinka for example) happened outside the usuals. It is beginning to remind me slightly of the dying days of the serve & volley era.

    Will Nole ever win RG? It's only gonna get harder for him with each passing year, given his recent injuries due to his taxing style of play. Nadal OTOH is still the best on clay by a mile, even though he has declined a lot especially in his mobility to move around the court.

    I'm a big Federer fan, but I highly doubt that this would be the case. Federer was struggling to just keep the ball in play against Tsonga. He really was poor.

    Sometimes I forget how good Novak is when he's losing.

    I agree against Tsonga but i'm talking about an average Fed performance which is better than they have produced today.

    ...

    Good point to break back.

    Fed would beat Nole, but against Nadal he is already beaten before even stepping on the court.

    Yeah, this. Roger is just mentally ****ed against Nadal now. Even on an indoor fast I'd be wary these days. He could probably still beat Djoker on faster surfaces now - definitely Cincinnati. Maybe even somewhere like Madrid, although RG might be stretching - 2011 was a while ago.

    I dunno. Federer would have a chance against Nole, but Nadal would definitely beat him.

    I wonder why Nole doesn't play with the same incentive when he isn't behind. If he does do that, he'll be unbeatable.

    Nole once again turning up the heat when behind. Impressive!
