sad for federer, have been stanning him for 15 years. but djokovic earned the shit out of it. wow.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

I just watched the whole match after getting through a whole work day dodging spoilers. Ouch. I couldn't envisage a more torturous match for die-hard Federer fans: losing with two Championship points after nearly five hours of up-and-down play, and a shank to end it. But, it's impressive he pushed Djokovic this hard. Djokovic is still looking like he's mostly in his prime form.

Between this match and the AO Nadal beatdown, I think Djokovic has a strong case for BOAT. I don't think he'll ever be considered GOAT over Federer (and if Fed had won this match, this discussion would be sealed forever). But, the opponent quality in all of his 16 major wins is insane: Federer (4), Nadal (4), Murray (5), and then three excellent players in Del Potro, Tsonga, and Kevin Anderson once each. At the very least, he's the most mentally tough and clutch player I've seen. He has the best ELO ranking too, for what that's worth.

nice @ those ELO rankings. crazy to see "the big 3" still there at the top. The only other dude who was able to crack through, was Murray, who unfortunately retired due to injury.

also nice to see Thiem ranked #4 there, he's legit. Always exciting when he plays, dude just blasts it non-stop.

ya Federer had that match. that one is going to sting. He's still GOAT right now, but Djoko has many years left to take that from him.
