  1. In a 4-hour, 55-minute thriller of a match in yesterday's Wimbledon Gentleman's Finals, Novak Djokovic barely defeated Roger Federer, the final score being 7-6(5), 1-6, 7-6(4), 4-6, 13-12(3). The match was so close that, at one point, Federer was serving with two match points on his racket, with the score in the fifth set 8-7, 40-15; yet, Djokovic somehow managed to draw even at deuce, and go on to break Federer's serve. The match was so close that Federer actually won more games (36-32) and more points (218-204). Today, Monday, a growing coalition is forming, contending that Federer actually won the match, and that he is the rightful Wimbledon champion. Reginald Halliday, one of the leaders of the movement, says, "Federer won more games, and most importantly, more points. How could Djokovic possibly be considered the champion, when he didn't even win a majority of these? The rules of tennis are archaic and unethical, and Federer will always be the 2019 champion to anyone of sound judgment." A representative for the Wimbledon tournament has not yet responded.
  2. There are several highlight films of Roger Federer hitting near-miraculous shots on YouTube. This 2008 Wimbledon tiebreaker against Nadal is as good as any highlight film - this is some of the greatest tennis ever played (by both players):
  3. I know these four have been beaten to death in this forum (but at least I didn't add Brooks Robinson), but I just cannot get over their total domination of the sport for the past dozen years, and even without Murray in the equation, the Big 3 have been unprecedented in their dominance of the sport. Look at these statistics: At least one of them made the finals of 38 consecutive Grand Slams, from the 2005 French Open to the 2014 Wimbledon Championships - that's 9 1/2 years-worth of Grand Slams. As there are 2 finalists per tournament, they made up 62 of the 76 finalists of those 38 Grand Slams. Beginning with the 2004 Wimbledon Championships, at least 1 of them has been in the finals of 47 of the last 49 Grand Slams - that's 12 1/4 years-worth of Grand Slams which continues to this day, and doesn't show much sign of letting up, at least not just yet. For 10 consecutive Grand Slams, one of them was champion, and another one was runner-up. One of them won 34 out of 35 consecutive Grand Slams - if you remove Murray from the equation, one of the Big 3 won 32 out of 35 (Murray is only 3-11 in Grand Slam finals). You can manipulate and invent all sorts of unbelievable numbers, but this is a pretty good start. We're witnessing the tail end of perhaps the most historic period of men's tennis we'll see in our lifetimes. And don't forget the one woman most responsible for who is arguably the greatest female tennis player in history: Venus Williams. Okay, okay, you want me to talk about someone else who's awesome? Boris Becker! Look! This is also a rare opportunity to hear the great Arthur Ashe commenting on the match - he doesn't waste words, and everything that he speaks rings of wisdom.
  4. Jan 28, 2016 - Semifinals, 2016 Australian Open Novak Djokovic wins, 6-1, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. Djokovic played as well as he's ever played for the first two sets, then Roger Federer's pride took over, and he found his form in the third before succumbing to the superior player in the fourth. Djokovic now leads the overall rivalry, with a razor's edge margin of 23 matches to 22. Can anybody stop this man? I don't see how - he looks to be the most dominant player on the horizon for at least a couple more years - maybe some young upstart will come along, but I don't see anyone just yet. Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of the conversation for GOAT, but Djokovic is only 28 years old (Federer is 34) - he surely has more Grand Slam titles left in him, but does he have seven? That's how many he'll need to tie Federer - it's not impossible, the way this titan has been rolling along, but I think he has a better chance to break Federer's "Weeks At #1" record of 302 - Djokovic has racked up 183, and I don't see any serious competition on the horizon. Maybe an injury is this man's biggest threat. Djokovic needs the French Open to complete a Career Grand Slam, and come Memorial Day Weekend, he's going to be *hungry* for the French, and I think he could take it this year.
