My friend Aleksey Vayner (he posts here occasionally) took a set of Fed in a practice session. I'd imagine that any other 2+2er who can can string together a few 140mph serves down the T wouldn't have much of a problem taking at least a couple sets to tiebreaks.




For some reason this seems ridiculous.

Nick,
Is PA aware of our unhealthy fascination with him?

If he is, what does he make of it?




unhealthy?

Hey Nick can you beat Ryan M? Did you carry him in doubles and did he grow any. When I played him in the juniors he was almost a midget. I never thought he'd be big enough to be a great player but someone told me he played #2 for the national championship team. Can you beat Adam L. or are you guys to big a gap in age to have played?

BTW best poker playing tennis player is Pete Sampras hands down. Although I did see him last year in an ex. match and his return was bleh and he couldn't close the net worth crap and was constantly hitting his first volley a step behind the service line.

surely a hustler like you must've had inside info on USC sports. Did you win any decent bets.

Do you have any insider info on futures/challengers matches and on what site can a US resident bet on challenger matches (or are the limits so low it's not even worth the time)?

Nick,

In a typical 5 setter, how many games would you expect the average 2+2er to be able to take from Roger Federer? Also, how many games do you think you could take from him?




a better question is how many points. And that is determined solely by how many times Federer double faults.

Ryan Moore and I were ranked #1 in the country 2 years pre season and were NCAA finalists our sophomore year. Not to mention 3-time all americans and NCAA team Champions.

I am fairly certain Ryan Moore owned you all throughout juniors. And why dont you grow some balls you [censored] and post your real name.

Yeah the average 2+2 would have a hard time winning 10 points in a 3 set match against Roger. In my prime I am sure I could have gotten 2 or 3 games. lol maybe 1 or 2. He is so good.

QFMFT. The rest of the world just doesn't understand how good this guy is. In sports there are arguements about how X would fare against Y in his prime. Well anyone who knows tennis knows Fed stops every great champion in his prime. It's the only sports arguement where I can say without a doubt who wins.
