Well done Federer but this was by far the worst Wimbledon I've ever seen.

Poor tournament overall.

Most one-sided final ever?

Since Hewitt beat Nalbandian 2002
Worst Wimbledon since 96
Uniformity of courts and serve and volley merchants are causing a real problem in the game
Only federer's story lifted it above that 96 tournament
They are introducing a next gen series in November
But with some true greats of the game nearing the end
I fear the game is in for a period of torpor
Only dip into tennis now rather than when I was younger and would go to Wimbledon and on that level still quite enjoy watching the game but I couldn't imagine being glued to it anymore

Imagine tennis 5 years from now.

All the greats will be retired.

The sport is in trouble.

Kinda like West Ham v Bolton finishing 5-4 or something

Yes, I'm probably using the term as a bit of a catch all
I mean the robotic nature of players with the personality and flair of a table lamp
It was ok when it was in contrast to flair
Hence the enjoyment of that mueller / nadal game last week but when everyone's like it
It makes for dullsville

Del Potro will be king


Anyway 5 years is a long time for someone to emerge but it does look weak atm.

I think Zverev is the one.

Only 20.
