Roger Federer takes Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal as the opponent, so that he can get his best level. Severin Lüthi: I don't think so. Clearly, Roger has played on Thursday against Djokovic, and it is a General rule that the Best one in the normal case, the most demanding. But Roger will succeed against other opponents again and again, the top of his game.
When Federer reached at the weekend to be top of the class, can beat him in London none. It is true: If Roger shows his Best, he is beat very, very hard to come by. But we don't look ahead so far, because we know him in the semi-final, a difficult Match awaits. In the last two years, he lost the ATP-Final in each semi-final, even though he was favored.
Federer in pain defeats less than in the past. Also I don't see in him. But it is certain that he has learned in the course of his career, defeats quicker to arrange and tick off. In the past, you can change nothing more. It's a great Rogers strength, it is actually always quickly able to look forward.
Federer has played in a defeat is never better than in the Wimbledon Final in 2019. It is difficult to compare individual matches. The fact is that he has done against Djokovic a lot of things right. I think he was over long distances the better man on the court. But he really played better as the 2008 Wimbledon Final against Nadal? No Idea.
Federer plays as good as ever, but has more bad days – this is an old question. It's not easy to level for months to uphold. I don't have the feeling that he had more bad days than in the past. But the top has become wider, therefore, he loses, in the meantime, perhaps a little more often on an average day.
stagnated The level at the top in the last five years. There are still the Same at the top, nevertheless, I would not speak of a Stagnation, but of a development. It is true that Roger, Nadal and Djokovic are no longer the same player as five or ten years ago. We take Nadal as an example: Offensively he is as good as ever, he's become on the Defensive a little weaker.
So many strong players now it has been in the men's tennis never. The way I see it. Although there used to be a strong competition, but lately have come to the years of Top-20 players, many of the Young to be better.
in 2020, there will be a new Grand Slam winner. You think a long time, the long-term Dominators, would be replaced, and yet they are still in the front, and that is no coincidence. Yes, Thiem, Tsitsipas, Zverev and Medvedev are all very strong. But it is really managed, no one can know whether or not you are able to win a Grand Slam title. I can't close that next year will be a new Grand Slam Champion. But if I had to tap, I would say: in the year 2020, there will be a new Grand Slam winner.
The young players are not for the three stars more dangerous than their previous challengers, because they solidify in front of them in awe. This is difficult to assess. Also for Stefanos Tsitsipas or Denis Shapovalov, to name only two, it is not easy to respect them. Since you can think of, dominate Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. In addition, The win not because of their Aura, but because you always manage to find on the square is a solution.
Federer no longer plays a lot of Exhibitions, because the success is not so important as before. Since I don't see the connection. The Exhibitions are for Roger a welcome change, especially as he goes, but mostly there, where he would not play in the ATP Tour, otherwise. The special experiences and impressions will help him to stay motivated. In addition, this is just a Phase, next year he will be riding hardly so many show matches best. His hunger for success has not determined decreased.
