Going to be a bitter and difficult loss for Federer after having 2 match points on serve. But still, he was incredible. Tennis has a scoring system where you can be the better player through the match, win more points, but lose in the end.

Novak in that game where he was down match points was phenomenonal. What a champion.

Eating the grass ...bit of a knob performance that one.
It would have been Feds greatest win.
Can’t beleive he lost it like he did when 40/15 on serve
Knob move lol? You salty that’s why. It’s a show of respect from his culture.
Ohh but what have been feds greatest win..

Anyone have the stats of majors won by the big 3 against each other? I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere Novak leads them both but could be wrong..
Rafa and Novak are tied at 4-4. Rafa leads fed 6-3. Novak leads fed 5-1

Edit: could be wrong though, just did a quick scan of their matches

Federer won 14 more points for the match, a much better winner to UE ratio, more aces, more break points. It's a very tough loss for him.

Djokovic on the other hand was not at his best in the first 2 sets that I watched. He was clutch in the tiebreaks, which in the end got him the trophy.

Read up one.
I like Novak, have argued on here why he could be the GOAT well before tonight. Haven’t heard from you previously though.
I stand firm it would have been Feds best win. He’d be shattered like no other loss.
Novak’s best win was prob AO 2012, though this right up there imo, but fed had it on his racket and let it slip. Was hard to mentally come back from that.
It’s more of Fed choke in the end.

Sleep....I need sleep.

I kinda thought Fed should do a Nick on his first MP. hit a first serve on his 2nd serve. Have it totally on his racquet. But that might be sleep deprivation talking

well, the womens doubles have just started....I don't think anyone will be watching the girls I never like a final played in an empty stadium.

I think I am all sported out. Its all too emotional for me.

Don’t post much on these forum in regards to tennis. I prefer also prefer the 2012 Aus open to this game but that come back was special. I wouldn’t wanna get sucked into the GOAT talk. I did read what you wrote after but it was too late I’d already pulled the trigger on the post. Tbf I don’t think Novak was as great as he normally is. Credit to Federer for a class performance it would sting but someone’s gotta lose.

Nerves got the better of Federer, sadly. Well done Novak on a great win. Clutch when it mattered.
Not even sure it was nerves really-just played the match points he had poorly. Impatient maybe. Should have nailed them. Halep would have.
Champions take their chances. Fed didn’t.

The implication fed isn't a champion is a strange one.

What an incredible final that was.

Of course he is a complete champion and he was probably the slightly better player on the night. I should have said to take the championship, and so to become the champion on that day, you have to take your chances. Fed had it there on his own racquet and blew it. So he’s not the champ today.
A really good final.
