I'm still gutted, bros. We were only 3 fucking sets away from eternal glory.

*NATO bombing flashbacks intensifies*
>>113317533God I love tennis
how are we holding up, djokobros?
>>113317533Good. Fuck that whiny bitch.
>>113317533What happened? Asking unironicallyBtw how is del potro doing
>>113317533Would be harder on him if he actually choked a lead.>>113318334he missed the calendar slam by 1 matchpermaded
>>113317533>eternal gloryIt was already over in the Olympics. There's only one GOAT and it's Steffi Graf.
>>113318042fine. am happy with meddy. luv his serve and play. as soon as he threw that coin at the umpire i knew he was based
Will Indian Wells have the meme champion instead of Bercy this year?
Is Laver cup worth watching?
>>113319931Yes lmao what kinda question is that
>>113319931as long as you're aware that it's tennis WWE
>>113319994Is that the famous band The Red Soys?
>>113320855Just team Anglo
>>113317971I want to Grand Slam her if you know what I mean... heh
I still can't believe it didn't happen
First thing Novak did when he landed here in Belgrade is he went to the gym, per multiple news sites. Guess his schedule should be released soon enough.
I LIKED THE PART WHEN EMMA WON ^_^
>>113321441Why isn't there a single women GS champion that's actually pretty?
>>113321441man imagine solving life at 18 years old
>>113317533All his career he desperately tried to be liked, and there he got what he asked for, just didn't like the price for it
>>113318334basically, a flash of lightning hit New York, which meant an Djokovic and Raducanu switched bodies. for one night only, Djokovic became a spaghetti spilling Brit while Raducanu became a clinical Serbian warlord.
>>113321472I don't know, almost all female tennis players are ugly and the few good looking ones rarely win anything
>>113321761I wouldn't say ugly but the face is always off somehow. Sharapova came close but she got that rough slav-babushka shit embedded in her face.
>>113321472Say no more
>>113321472Mugu won RG and Wimbledon
>>113321923Sry but manface
Naomi Osaka is cute
>>113321903>>113321923the search continues
The trip to Tokyo was a massive mistake by Novak, ruined his whole rhythm
>>113321472Too young to remember Maria Sharapova?
>>113322072Nah. It was the 5 sets v Sascha.
>>113322091She looked a Russian farm maid without 2kg of makeup.
>>113322072In another dimension where Novak skips Olympics and wins USO people would say "lmao he easily could have had golden slam what a retard to skip olympics".
>>113322447>>113322237Even before that match he looked off compared to the rest of the season, Tokyo took its toll, even with all the positivity around that fucked with his psyche.
>>113322447Of course lelAnyway he was just too shit to win either
>>113322578Yeah he was too shit to even put himself in that position, unlike literally every other male tennis player...take you mental illness outside zerg
You will never be a real goat. You have no gold medal. You are a fraud twisted by veganism and instagram tier spirituality into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your coaches are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “fans” laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.Westerners are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed people to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even a swiss who “pass” looks uncanny and unnatural to a real fan. Your lack of golden slam is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a bronze medal home with you, people will turn tail and bolt the second they get a whiff of your resume black hole.You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your wife will find you, heartbroken but relieved that she no longer has to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you outside of Monaco and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a Serb nationalist is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably unvaccinated.This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.
>>113321903what video game is this?
>>113322535Meh. Everyone said the same thing when he dropped 2 to memeshitti and then one to Matteo @RG. Nadal looked way worse dropping that solitary set to Ivashka and then losing to Rublev wherever it was in the clay season. Felt like his career was ded seeing that way more than I did with Djoker's minor hiccups. But typing this actually yeah the loss to Sascha was his only non-quality loss. Maybe it did wear on him. Tbh I think Matteo was really bad and playing Brooksby rather than Karatsev really hurt him. He needed better prep in the tournament. And then Sascha exhausted him
>>113322913Nadal and Novak both started the clay swing incredibly slow, but ended up in the final of Rome and met in SFs where either one would beat Sissy in the finals. Long gone are times when those two could come out gun blazing at any tournament.
>>113322913That’s true, I guess Djokovic really isn’t 25 anymore to keep up the level of play. But if there’s something to take from this season’s autopsy it’s that a golden slam is impossible in mens tennis and the grand slam is nearly impossible.
>>113323218The calendar grand slam is impossible too, but non-calendar one like Nole Slam could perhaps happen in next 30-40 years.Calendar Grand Slam is almost cursed I think, Federer was 26-1 and 27-1 in 2006 and 2007, both time losing to the toughest possible opponent.Novak has been 27-1 twice now, and in 2015 really Wawrinka was the toughest possible matchup for him, and now Medvedev who is his equal on hardcourts. You could bet if they less tough player to play against they'd clinch it once for sure.
>>113323494It's not impossible. Federer should have completed it in the weak era. Nadal could've done it at some point. I just think Novak had an abysmal first 5 round set of opponents that didn't harden him. He's a chameleon.
>>113323593Mate, if none of those three didn't manage, no one will, unless Chinese bioengineer a kid from scratch that's made to win every match. Even when Laver won it, 3 slams were on grass and one on clay. The low ranked opponents were amateur tier, most of top guys didn't even play in AO, and there was no worldwide attention to tennis before Connors/Borg. He literally won USO because he had in reserve cleats with longer spikes to prevent him from sliding and his opponent didn't. It wasn't as tough to do it in modern times.
>>113323738The problem is the lack of grass at the lower levels. Some hard hitting clay courters with grass experience could manage it.
>>113323799I think they'll add more grass events and also start de-homogenizing surfaces, because that allows for more random results and more title winners in a season. Every sport nowadays is trying to push the "look it is SO competitive in here literally ANYONE can win ANYTHING" which is good for entertaintment in short term but idk about long term.
>>113323738Timing is key, there’s usually only one season window during a “changing of the guard” era - Fed’s window was only the 2006 season with Safin, Roddick and Hewitt not being dangerous and Nadal, Berdych etc. not old enough to be consistent. Djoko had 2 windows really, 2015 when everybody else was off and only godlike Stan stopped him and this year, when the second best player is fucking Medvedev or Zverev, but an unlucky draw in the US and Tokyo weather killed his momentum. I’d still bet any money that with Meddy’s draw he’d win it, but that’s tennis.
Don't you miss when the WTA was consistent?
>>113324163No. Fernandez was kino. She should've won. Her opponents were insane
What does it mean if #150 in the world is the women's champion?inb4 depth
I think that if Novak won the break in the 2nd set it would've finished 3-1. Momentum is huge part of tennisOh well.
Might as well rename D*ilyMail to D*ilyRaducanu it's that bad already. If you're a shy teen your whole world would be turned upside down by the shitrags.
>>113322072I also think this was the case, his aura of invincibility started to fall apart with that, and all those dropped sets against his pigeons didn't help either. In normal circumstances he would have never lost sets to Berrettini, to name one.
>>113325942Graf shouldn't have retired at 30 and played until her 40s like Serena if she wanted the titles
>>113326017Who cares about titles you dumb seppo, the point is Graf was objectively a better tennis player than Serena.
>>113326025>who cares about titlesEveryone also Serena did get one of her biggest opponents stabbed by a psycho fan
>>113326076>who cares about titlesHow dense are you, american idiot?Having the most titles does not make you the best player.
>>113326124It is. That's what 98% of big 3 flamewars are about
Move over men
>>113326263Thank you for confirming your stupidity, idiot.
>>113326494SEETHING. Graf would get stomped
>>113326271The NoFans effect
>>113326630t. idiotGraf won 22 titles and retired at 30.Serena won 23 and is still desperately trying at 40.She will never catch Court, and she was never better than Graf to begin with, idiot.
>>113326705you mean tennis in general? kek
>>113326271I can't believe that is the case. Even my girlfriend and his family watched the men's final and she doesn't give a fuck about tennis. Meanwhile I don't know anyone IRL who watched the women's final
>>113327129these are american ratings
>>113324593Hey Serbian cock sucker found your former BF>>113327417 Now try to get him back Faggot
>>113326271what's your point? these are clearly just 1 channel's ratings
>>113321441This is a great image and props to her. I would love it if they took a photo of her with a genuine WTF expression though because she must feel like she's in a dream.
Why it is so common for pros to act like a child and smash their rackets? Why do commentators emphasize about how tennis is a """mental""" sports? Even a friend of mine, that played in his childhood, would parrot this during matches.I never played tennis but, for example, why people dont say that swimming (or any endurance) is mental? In swimming you need to focus 100% of the time to not die.I dont see swimmers trashing the lane markers because they lost a 0.0001 sec during a turn.
>why doesn't anyone recognize me>the music is too loud>my feet hurt>i'm hungry
>>113322019Obviously terrible handjob technique.
>>113326271Yeah that's because of the cinderella story with Emma making it all the way through from qualifiers (+being cute) in contrast to Novak, who has never been much of a crowd draw, and Medvedev not being a household name yet.
>>113328453Tennis is a mental game in that it’s a 1v1 match where you need to outsmart and outplay your opponent. It’s not just a matter of hitting a shot on fair grounds, it’s shot selection, pace of play and finding a strategy that exposes the other player’s weaknesses. And that person is trying to do the same to you. Swimming is a competition. There is nothing you can do that could affect a competitor’s abilities. A backstroke is a backstroke. The winner is the one who executed it better. The racket smashing is a result of them being spoiled children with no outlets to vent their frustration. Immediate point deductions instead of warnings would stop that nonsense real quick.
>>113322746>Even a swiss who “pass” looks uncanny and unnatural to a real fan.
>>113328557>EmmaAmericans were probably more familiar with Leylah due to her beating Naomi
>>113317533>I'll tell you one thing and I'm not ashamed to say it, my estimation of Novak Djokovic as a tennis player just fucking plummeted.

Where's my Indian Wells wildcard?
>>113331723define nowhere. like literally nowhere or you thought they would do way more than they did?back in early 2014, i was watching nishikori heem people on clay courts. he destroyed everyone at the barca open and i was convinced he was going to become the next big tennis player. but then he lost that final to marin cilic and with injuries... feel like he never lived up to his potential and now his career is at its twilight.the early 2010s has a lot of players like that who seemed like they could be the next thing but they never really got anywhere pasting jobbing at grand slams.i thought david goffin was going to be better as well
im still sad novax lost and the match was shit too
Novak is still my GOAT
>>113331860>i thought david goffin was going to be better as welloh how things changed after getting hit in the eye
>>113326271>>113327129>>113328557no it's because the women's final was on Saturday which means it didn't have to compete with anything else while the men's final was on Sunday and that just happened to be the opening day of the NFL season so it got fucked by that.

Can anyone beat Novak 338 weeks streak? Let’s say Novak dies tomorrow and his streak ends. That’s literally 6 and a half years. Seems impossible to me.
>>113352535It's not a streak tho. But either way, Novak and Fed are a rare breed with absolutely no real surface weaknesses. Nadal is close in that respect but was a bit less consistently successful on grass.
Does Jannik Sinner need more time?
>>113352196>scammed gorillions of parents by working with serena after her peakTruly the Elizabeth Holmes of tennis
>>113352558Sorry my pt is that Daniil or Tsi would struggle to emulate that because of their surface weaknessesMaybe if Daniil wins 4 hardcourt Masters per yearMatteo is the closest to the big 3 in terms of versatility across surfaces
>>113352566He'll end up being less successful than Fraudix and Baby Nadal. Don't get the hype, personally

so i use an eastern grip on a forehand like Roger does and only handful of players these daysI just tried to hold a racket with a semi western and western grips and it feels unnatural, impossible, and with western grip outright insane to grip a forehand like that.Yet like 90% of pros these days use those gripsMy question is: How?How is it possible that people hit a forehand with a western grip?
>>113354707just look at this.what is thiswhat is wrong with this guywhy is he doing thatwhyi am seriously agitated with this
>>113354707dude just hold the racket lmao
Will there ever be a zoomer who could at 24 win a 5 hour match then two days later a 6 hour match like Novak did in AO 2012? Surely the fitness regiments and recovery methods will improve right?
>>113354707Isn't just the racket head is facing a different direction. Don't get why you think its a big issue? Most tennis players use semi western so its just practice more?
>>113355456no, zoomers sit down and play games too much. As evidenced by the zoomer shit doing video game garbage

So I got really into tennis during the U.S. Open. Is it worth subscribing to ATP Tennis TV or something else and trying to get into the sport more by watching non-Grand Slam events? What's coming up the rest of the year that's worth watching? Thanks /tennis/ bros.
>>113365747Watch my ex gf back then https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esH1LLfDY9k
Djokovic is a like a character in a Richard Curtis romcom. The only thing that could break through his ice cold mental state and stop him winning was the one thing that he desired the most, love. And in the end that was more important that his 21st Grand Slam.

>>113365747Tennis Channel is good if you want to subscribe, they have all the matches, but it's not necessary. For the rest of the year there's Indian Wells Masters to watch (Masters tournaments are a part of so called Big Titles), it starts October 4th, ends October 17th, then there's Paris Masters in beginning of November, and at the end there's Tour Finals (another big title) for both women and men. In Tour finals only the Top 8 players of the season play so it's always interesting

so after the emotional meltdown and winning the crowd over by showing frailty, will Djokovic become the new fan favourite?will it make him lose his strongmind permanently? there's a feeling all he ever wanted was to be liked. now he's possibly achieved that, will he lose his drive?
>>113382851They just cheered for him because Americans are programmed to hate Russians. Wait for AO.
>>113382851Nah, he always had great support in places like China and he has a monster record there. It's just that for 10+ years every single match in USA and especially New York he had to play against the crowd. He even said after the match "he didn't expect much or any support in finals" and that's because they still cheered against him in 6 matches before the finals. Had they actually cheered for him all the way instead of rooting for le epic underdog win 6 times things may have been different, but who knows.
>>113382851>>113382881Most burgers at the stadium had no idea what's going on anyways. They were just told it's some big event and also yeah, russia bad

>>113383140No. I meant the final precisely. It was filled with upper class normies and celebs and you could hear it, that shitshow towards the end was the best proof those people didn't care about tennis in the slightest. Nole just got unlucky it was final against a russian, otherwise the crowd would be against him and he'd be in his usual environment
>>113383279You're right about most of that but Novak was just gassed I think. And Daniil was serving lights out (had been all Yank hardcourt swing). FAA chokes massively and gave Daniil an effective bwalkover which didn't help. Med was practicing all morning on finals day because he was so fresh
We'll see how will the crowd treat Novak in next tourno he plays. He's officially on the list for Indian Wells but he could always skip it. After that only Vienna and Paris left (and Tour Finals), but there's a lot of Serbs in Vienna so he'd get support there no matter what. Becker said here that Novak just wants any kind of energy from the crowd, either for or against him. Silence is the worsthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfQOw8KQLp0&t=700s
>>113383362I don't think he will skip palm springs. He kinda likes it there.
>>113383334Yeah, I shouldn't discredit Daniil like that because he played the match of his life and I'm sure it surprised everyone how good he was serving. That said I also believe that Djoko in his good form could still win or at least drag the game to a close 5setter
>>113383411Novak being half a step slower than his usual self still had the opportunity to win all the sets he lost. Tennis is an ultimate momentum game, if Novak wins that 2nd set he'd probably free up and relieve the tension, and play like he is able to. Dakneel is too smart to have given him that chance, he dug deep in key moments
How good is Medvedev's French?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQX9xQorljA
>>113374521>>113380858when a porn star has a crucifix or christian tattoos, it makes me think better of them, like perhaps they won't do that their whole life and get a real job eventually and live a decent life
>>113384001His French is pretty good he spent time in France as a kid a lot
>>113384001They care a lot about the accent and his is very good especially for a Russian.
>>113384001I learned french in school, I would say not as good as Roger's, but much better than Rafa and Novak's.

I am 100%sure it's just something she wore as a kid and it stuck with her. Like an old watch or a hair-clip or a doll that girls refuse to let go, since it gives them some emotional comfort (childish but everyone is superstitious when they're young). She's probably more interested in Jimmy Choo than Jesus Christus desu. PS: Posting shit to keep the thread from archiving

>>113387727He beat Nadal. That's his only achievement tbqh
Why does Tsitsipas love high bounce balls to his forehand but his backhand sucks, he's just gonna be in the purgatory forever with this compromised style, not really excelling on any surface
>>113389622His backhand doesn't suck, and he excels on clay.High bouncing balls to one handed backhands being a weakness is a meme. Just because Frauderer sucks at it, doesn't mean it's a weakness for all players.
will we ever seen such raw natural talent again?

I miss line judges. It's probably really easy now to rig matches with electronic line calling....
I don't watch tv shows (never watched sopranos, breaking bad, lost, or that dragon medieval fantasy stuff people were crazy about for years)but I just watched the Mardy Fish anxiety documentary. It was ok 7/10kinda makes the brother of McEnroe look very bad as davis cup captainit also made me feel bad for Roddick's 2009 wimbledon lossThe big 3 are really crushers of dreams of every other tennis player. I see Roddick and Murray as Courier Lendl level players that were demoted to only 1 slam and 3 slams for having to compete against the best 3 tennis players ever.
>>113384114yeah. luv me some good chrisjun pornstar
>>113392373imagine unironically thinking servebots and pushers deserve to win slams
>>113392151He had 26 matches to play instead of 28 and 3 out of 4 slams were on grass. Also back then the most important skill was volley and everything came after it, whereas today you need to have a very good or full package to win
>>113386178Same with Djokovic. He still wears a cross necklace but he hasn't been Christian for years. He believes in New Age magic
>>113394325I'm glad he lost. He would've credited this retarded mumbo jumbo for his success if he had won.
>>113394397He never credited that shit even when he won. He always credited the team, his diet and mental training, and he never expanded on that last bit.
>>113392310Same, robot calls are so soulless
>>113391845>raw natural talentBro the way he plays is far from natural, it’s extremely technical and impressive but takes a high cost on the body try doing the straight arm forehand for 2 hours (with topspin somehow added)He just said trains intensely
Imagine blowing the chance to surpass Federer and Nadal and do it with a calendar grand slam at the same time, might as well just kys at that point desu.
>>113396056Anon...he already surpassed both long time ago
Novak went to Bosnian pyramids for the weekend, so it's fair to say it's over for the rest of the guys in the remainder of the season
>>113317533Nadal still has one or two chances left to win RG and raise the bar to 23. Most likely Djoko will win the race at the end though
Let's go, Aslan!!!
>>113317971>God I love pennis>posts ladyboyyou degen, go back to /gif/
>>113396958His body is fucked, bro. Djoker still has zest in his backhand and serve. I think Novak would straight set him on every surface
>>113396959Ivashka in quarters is tough
>>113362891Look at Emma to fix it mate.
>>113397066Yes, but that's half the fun. Don't want him to win if he isn't playing well anyway
>>113396056Against Medvedev in straights. It’s like a joke result you’d have a laugh about but actually happened. Kinda like the olympics meltdown too. Le mental giant.
If the ATP wouldn't protect Novak, Meddy would be NO.1 already.The whole frozen ranking thing was just created to protect Slowak.His Faggot fans will defend that shit and keep crying about his "poor treatment"
Tennis is so fucking easy...imma make these novak/nadal niggas look like farmers
>>113399585And that only changed last week kek you fucking loser, ATP took away Novak's 22 weeks during pandemic
>>113399585>>113399630Can you post the standings before USO...oh right...heh...Novak would be #1 no matter if the ranking was normal. The only protected one is Fedora
Reminder that LTA has tried hard to get Novak to switch to British citizenship and play for them, because they knew how talented he was. Could you imagine just how much bong and burger media would suck his dick if he was playing under union jack and had this much success?
You have been talking about Novak nonstop for a year now. Don't you ever get bored?
>>113400026>burger media would suck his dickYeah, just like with Andy Murray, ohh shit that never happened>>113399630>>113399654The only person who's constantly dreaming of sucking Slowak's dick is youPutin should let his friend take care of the gypsy,a corrupt Serbian preventing a Russian becoming NO.1 should be punished accordingly
>>113400401Keep coping, if ATP counted points normally all the time Medvedev would start his first week this week and Novak would have already had 359 weeks. Imagine playing 8 more tournaments in a year and still not being able to go past ahead. Also Novak played less than 10 tournaments this year and is 2000 points clear of Daniil who played 14 in the race. Also if you like Turkic tribes in Russia you should go and live there instead of stealing german gibs.
>>113400401Andy Murray doesn't have a quarter of Novak's success.
>>113400473I would love to live in Russia, especially in a place with many tatar cuties.But a Faggot like you can't understand that
>>113400711Go then and live there, what's the issue? Ahhh yeah, german gibs are higher than russian gibs and tatars don't allow basement dwellers in their society.
>>113400761It isn't easy to get a Work visa in Russia and I can't speak Russian good enough to communicate with the people.But it's funny that a dirty gypsy like you is talking about tatars and "their society"
>>113400401Memeray is hyped incessantly in America. He's getting all these Mickey Mouse wildcards
>>113401063Of course it's hard to get a work visa for you when you do nothing but shit your underwear in your basement waiting for gibs.
>>113401537Diego outside clay is like fish outside water
>>113401285I have a job, you little Idiot.And btw it isn't Novak who is giving Serbs a bad name, it's people like you.You talk shit about Federer and Nadal all the time, but you get emotional and angry if anybody is talking bad about your hero.
>>113401589His opponent is unranked
>>113401692You literally live on gibs and everyone here knows that.Not to mention how wrong you are in the second part. It's literally you and couple others who can't get through a day without being obsessed about Novak. Ever since Wimbledon 2018 you can't take Novak's dick out of your mouth on near daily basis.

There are posters here who never were in /f1/ but I can tell you: for a whole year there was a german poster (called hamspammer), spamming pictures of Hamilton day after day after day in attempt to rile up /f1/ because we all hate the cunt. He got reported from spamming multiple times but that didn't deter him, to the point he started using VPNs (in this case, mexican VPN). In the end, during this season, another german came and called out the spammer for being Loserbernd, which no one believed because he "uses" his username all the time, right?! However turns out the german was a longtime krautchan poster, along with some other posters, and knew what was up. The spamming stopped that day.https://archive.4plebs.org/sp/thread/111110545/#111111854No one writes journalists or random words at that with capital letters like an idiot, not to mention making up acronyms, except for the mentally ill hapa.https://archive.4plebs.org/sp/thread/108903079/#108918068Another german in /tennis/ itself pointing out the schizohttps://archive.4plebs.org/sp/thread/108153809/#108176174Again, another case in point. Germans are generally deranged people, but there's only one poster under the german flag that is so deranged about multitude of sports and people that he keeps on going literally every day of his life, purposefully namefagging when it suits him, mentioning sister fucking randomly to diss others when he actually assaulted his own sister, fantasizing about death of pure Germans, loving Nadal to his death and hating Novak in turn, and it's loserbernd. Any regular krautchan poster can easily confirm this. The worst part is he doesn't actually watch much the things he's posting about because even the simplest of sports are too high IQ for the thaifaggot. I won't comment on this fucking loser anymore, he can cope and deflect eternally for all I care. Be born a loser and die a loser.
>>113354707most tennis players use semiwesternthe western grip is less common than in the past, perhaps because the new better strings make it easier to generate spin, so you don't need an extreme grip for that anymoreNadal went from western to semiwestern like in 2007This man had the most extreme grip ever, hawaiian grip. Alberto Berasategui.He didn't have to change grips between forehand and backhand.He was pretty good, once made a Roland Garros final, and lost to Bruguera, who was the guy who had the most topspin before Nadal. He would surely have more topspin than Nadal with the same strings of Nadal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8eIz2nfw-o
>>113404736i miss the 90s aesthetic desunobody wears those loose collared shirts anymorewomen would look so cool in it>>113404649fix hellas kek10/10
>>113404736>>113354707the extreme one handed backhand grip is also less common than in the past. now only kohlschrieber and gasquet have it, who are both super old. kuerten, gaudio, corretja, costa etc use to have it, it was the most common one among good one handed backhands.If you have an eastern forehand, you should look at Bautista Agut, he has the most classic one, and it works pretty well for him. It's like a shot from 30 years ago.https://youtu.be/pncoHEnVIfQ?t=25the Pella match will decide if the Daniil kid that beat Schwartzman is a new sensation, or if the Jew was wasted
I've only started following /tennis/ during US Open, but I can say without a doubt Serbs are the worst posters here. It's a pretty usual behaviour for third worlders though, they tend to obsess over the one sportsman/team that makes their shithole relevant on the world stage.
>>113405474Talmbout flat forehands?
>>113405560I can understand them because Novak must be their Maradona. Tennis players here play with less pressure because the pressure is on football players.Even Novak must have felt the extra pressure of doing something, not only for himself, but also to "give joy" to the Serbian people. Federer doesn't have that pressure because the Swiss have a pretty good life.>>113405449I miss the white polo shirt + cap, best look

>>113409264Confused by how rich or not they are. Some articles mention a home in Kent (as well as Bromley SE London). Her male friend is a definitely a posh rich cunt son of a banker
>>113409191democracyArgentina was rich when oligarchs faked elections, or when the party poor people vote for was proscribed.When you let people vote, everything goes to shit, because they will vote for raising taxes on the private sector, and subsidies and comfy unstressful public sector jobs for themselves.the other problem we have is our federal system, which means 5 provinces have productive economies, while much of their money is redistributed to the other 19 provinces. Those 19 provinces are like emirates that instead of oil have free money from the 5 developed provinces, and therefore end up being ruled pretty similar to Brunei or Bahrein, which everybody living from the state, and always reelecting the politician that pays their wage every month.In the end the problem is indeed the people.

What are Federerfags going to do once Novak wins his 21st?Right now literally the only thing they have to feel good about is that Novak doesn't for the time being have more Grand Slams. But once he surpasses him will they still celebrate whenever Novak loses? Why?

>>113440920He's right. But 4chan is the worst. Is he throttling 4chan as well?
>>113440065I still don’t understand why they thought celebrating only winning 3 grand slams plus making it to the final of the 4th one and losing to the second seed is some kind of colossal failure. Fed never won the first 3 slams in his career and the last time someone did it was decades ago. Coping i guess?

>>113441699I know what you mean
more like djokobitch lol
>>113441865These funds for challengers are pretty sad, some of them as low as 44k for 32 players in singles and 16 doubles teams
>>113442244Around 6k for the winner before taxes
>>113442244Yeah it's terrible. But it's getting worse. Even Astana is less than $50,000 for the winner. I'm sure loads of players are retiring due to covid
>>113442636no wonder only shit-tier zoomers joined the game
>>113442244>>113442310>>113442636and some people try to say that tennis isn't a rich people sport...say for instance if you are a good jobber tennis player and you win the odd challenger, is that even sustainable? surely you will be in the red having to pay for travel, lodging, equipment, trainers and physios.i vaguely remember seeing some average prize money chart and people ranked outside of 300 will average less than 30k a year
>>113443955Being no 1 in your country probably helps a lot even if it's fucking Usbekistan. Istomin probably makes more from sponsoring than any Spanish player that isn't Nadal.
>>113444258Cope. Istomin is coached by his mom. A lot of people just want to follow their passion and will sacrifice a lot to say they tried.
>>113443955Let's say we have a spanish player from Madrid playing in idk Sevilla challenger, and you're bringing just your coach with you as bare minimum. By bus as cheapest means you're already wasted 200 euros (round way trip). Then you find a place to stay for 6 days, let's say you find some cheapass hotel with 30 euros a night for room,so that's 210 euros more. Three meals a day for you and the coach, let's say another 150 euros. Before the challenger even started, you're in a ~600 euro deficit, and that's with the benefit of two cities being relatively close, bringing just one person and finding very cheap hotels and not going for better things on food. The worst is if you have to qualify, then you add more plus you won't even get back to net zero before winning 3 matches in this case. Tennis definitely isn't cheap but it allows for rapid player progression and then if you get into Top 100 it starts getting easier.
>>113445457180* for staying in hotel but yeah, ~200 eu
>>113444258This is why tennis players move out for better pastures as soon as they can. I doubt Istomin's ambition was to be #1 in his country. If it was then congrats and fuck off. You've wasted your entire life. Could've had a better one being a chartered accountant. 99% of people would rather be Alcaraz than Istomin. The EU simply has much better culture of tennis. C'est La Vie innit mein Freund
>>113445457This is why match fixing is so common but most just become tennis coaches once they pass hit their late 20s. Tennis coaching is good money.
>>113445873Yeah, especially if you're a pro scammer
>>113440920Thats retarded, why do some Russian tennis players still have their residence within Russia? Dont they have the means to get out?

>>113446553unironically if i could win 20 majors, i'd win 1 Aussie Open just to say i'd completed the "official set". not one tennis player on earth would say they dreamt of winning the Aussie Open. not true for any of the other 3.didn't McEnroe completely dismiss it and never go? or was it Connors? i'm sure no one took it seriously.
