Thiem, Zverev, Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Berretini, Rublev, Shapavolov, Schwartzman, Khachanov, Auger-Allisiame, De Minaur, Ruud, Pouille, Hurcakz, Fritz, Humbert, alll young enough to improve heaps and promising its going to be a great next decade and wont be the easiest for the older 3 to keep winning slams as some of them are really close.
You can take De Minaur out. The others yep.

That was an exciting final. One of the things that made the final exciting is that most predicted Muguruza to win. Another thing is we got a new winner. When the game comes predictable, it becomes dull and frankly not worth watching.
Exciting final? What to see how many doubles Muguruza could serve?

Don’t worry happy for Kenin but that was an utter error fest the whole match. Tonight was winners from both players.

The ending last night summed up that match.

Could happen in our lifetime.

No one thought anyone would surpass Sampras' record of 7 Wimbledon Championships and yet Federer achieved it about 10-15 years later.
I wouldn’t be betting on it. Think we’ve seen 3 of the greatest players in one era. It’s likely it won’t happen or go close to again.

It might happen but the odds are against it.

Don’t think he’ll get the love until Fed retires to be honest.
Won’t even get the love then honestly. Most Fed fans will probably choose Nadal next or one of the nextgen players.

Pretty sure that most people don’t like Djokovic because of his personality. That’s why I don’t like him and I have heard the same from many others. There is no changing that.

IMO Djoker behaves like a twat because thats what he needs to do to stay in the zone. Look at any of the greats of any sport and they have a killer attitude. Djoker probably acts similar to Draymond Green but at the end of the day they need their killer attitude when competing. If both acted like complete twats off the court then you could criticise more. But from what ive heard or read, Novak is quite a good bloke to fans outside the game

He’ll get more of the love when Fed retires and Nadal really only is relevant on the clay.

Don’t have an issue with his personality, he is quite nice and has a laugh off the court.

The guy pretended to almost die to throw Murray off in a final here, no one with any level of human decency likes or wants anything to do with the guy.
Hahaha, you sure he wasn't distracted by his wedding ring swinging around on his shoelace? Murray's a professional choker, no need to get sour grapes. :$

The biggest joke is Novak gifting that muppet 2 grand slams. How he managed to lose those is a mystery of the highest order

I'm a big Djokovic fan, but you're disrespecting Murray here.

3 grand slams, 11 grand slam finals, 14 Masters and 46 titles overall and clearly the 4th best player of this generation.

If he had played in a generation without all the big 3 playing at once, he would have won 6-8 slams.

I couldn't care less for Murray or whoever he was playing that night, if you watched it Novak was stumbling between points almost falling over yet once he got in front he was fine.

It was intentional cheating imo and I'll never have any respect for the guy.

So the doctor actually said he was dehydrated and thought he’s suffering from a few different things.

Can the lame agendas against Novak finally stop?

It’s not the first time he’s stumbled. I love him, but the guy’s diet is trash. I’ll never understand why so many people think a plant-based diet is actually beneficial to them.

Yeah ok kid, he totally cheated himself to victory by "almost falling over"... :drunk:
