Congrats to Djokovic on his slam.

Anderson too mentally weak to deserve a slam. Had chances in the third set with Djokovic below par and couldn't even take the set.

Congratulations Novak. Sitting in a hostel in Paris watching the 2016 RG final on tv, getting quite emotional seeing him complete the career slam, I thought many slams were to come.

The past 2 years have been a roller-coaster with injuries, personal problems, motivation issues, coaching changes and a fear he would never win another one. But here we are! #13

Well done to Kev for fighting and having 3 set points himself.

Too mentally weak? He just got through two very taxing 5 set matches, the bloke is simply cooked unfortunately.

He was cooked the first two sets and played like garbage. A WTA player would have beaten him in those sets.

Third set he was playing well. Had many set points and Novak didn't rip anything out of his arse like against Nadal to save them. To me that is mental for Anderson. He was clutch against Federer, however is known for not being mentally strong in plenty of tour finals in the past.

Maybe 5 set tiebreakers should happen but only if the final set is 12-12.
I reckon For anything but the final 10-10 all in 5th is a tie breaker.

In the final let it go. Players don’t have to back up.

The fact that Joker leads Rafa and Fed , arguably the 2 greatest of all time head to head is extraordinary.
What a player, what an era.

Well done to Novak, good that he's been able to make a comeback after all the various problems he's had in recent times. Would have been great to see the underdog win but I think Anderson played his final in the Semi.
