2016 Roland Garros Finals
« on: June 04, 2016, 21:16 »
Now on with Serene Williams versus Garbine Muguruza!  I will pick the latter in view of her consistently and tenacity!  Fast on the court and runs down every ball versus the now lethargic and lazy Willams!  Lucky to go thru' the Qtrs and Semis with so many unforced errors, very sluggish in her movements, guess she getting old now! ;D

She may be out but she will be better in Wimbledon!

Now is Novak Djokovic versus Andy Murray!  I have to go with Serb because of his punishing ground strokes and consistency in his overall play!  Andy seems to lose his cool easily against him!  Guess at least a four setters to decide the eventual winner!

Happy viewing! :)

Basically novak is thriving in a time when the men's field is weak. He is lucky that he is a late bloomer which coincided with Fed and Nadal's decline. Currently he hardly has any real challengers. All the supposedly next gen like kei and whatever all failed to develop. That he was playing Thiem in the semis is already telling. If Fed and Nadal did not exist in the same period of time, both of them would have many more titles. I have no doubt that novak is extremely good - but watching him compared to watching Fed, i definitely have much less "omg-how-did-he-do-that" moments. Tennis is definitely on the downhill - i have never watched so little tennis as this year. And I subscribe to SH sports group JUST for tennis (Mio doesn't show much tennis).

Actually MIO shows all the 4 Grand Slam events live and that's find with me!! :)

As for the Serb, he is already 29 years old but if he can keep his fitness and agility for the next 5 years, he may surpassed Fed Express of 17 GS and be the GOAT!  Wish him luck! :)
