    Nadal vs Kyrgios will be very fun. I hope Kyrgios plays his dirty mindtricks on him.
    Will be rooting for Nadal. I enjoyed Kyrgios until his match against Tsitsipas. Went full clown-mode and turned it into a circus. Too much abuse from him directed at umpire and opponent as well but never gets warning. He is way too good to resort to those antics. Seems like he is kind of forcing becoming the bad boy of tennis which in turn makes you not being one.

    probably best game of the tourney so far

    In the third set , game 3 that Nadal won , those winning shots were incredible. Don't know the term in tennis but it's when you chip the ball in football. He did that 4 points in a row (iirc) and won them all .

    It?s called a lob I think. He started to rely on those to win points. Never saw him do it that often.

    I am almost certain you guys are talking about drop shots, the shots close to net to make Fritz come in. A lob is hitting it over your opponents body when they are close to net.

    Nah Kyrgios is entertaining. The most entertaining final will be Kyrgios vs Djokovic. Both are absolute mental beasts and won't get rattled easily.

    Kyrgios a mental beast? Dude gets pissed off at everybody almost every match. That said, I will root for him against both Nadal and possibly Djokovic. Cause he's entertaining as hell and can be unbeatable when he wants to be (on his own serve especially), and because I'm a Federer guy.

    Meh... geriatric Nadal and Djoko should be consistently sent home by now in these tournaments, but generation iPhone is just the worst.

    Yeah, at this point, Federer having it easy from 2003-2007 (until Nadal hit his prime in 08) is offset by Nadal and Djokovic dunking on these next gen at 35/36 while not even physically fit.

    I honestly don't see anyone stopping Nadal/Djokovic in slams in the next 2 years. Another 2-3 for Nadal and another 3-4 for Djokovic.

    Alcaraz was slated to be the next big star but even he shit the bed. It's actually incredible to see so many of these young players crumble under pressure. Look at players like Zverev and Tsitsipas, great fundamental players but cannot handle any sort of mental pressure. Medvedev also good but doesn't have that x factor.

    I would argue Fed's competition in 2002-2007 had a lot more players with big balls and not afraid to take risks.

    Current era is worse than the early to mid 00s Federer faced. Safin would beat the shit out of these softies. Roddick too most likely. Young Rafa himself was a beast on clay.

    Like you say there is a mental problem in all of these players. These guys would lose to Nadal or Djokovic from 2-0 in sets and 5-1 in the 3rd.

    Not to mention that I miss Murray from early to mid 2010s. The guy actually beat all of the big 3 in big tournaments. There was actuallly a big 4 at the time. Even Wawrinka was different level of beast. Del Potro too, shame about his injuries. Guy actually took out prime Nadal and Federer back to back. Nadal won something like 6 games in the USO semis. Those were Nadal and Federer in their 20s not these guys who have borderline arthritis in their knees.
