Federer's final match is tomorrow.  He's playing doubles with Nadal against Sock and Tiafoe.

Federer still has the skills and reaction time, but the legs (knees) wouldn't cooperate.  Still a joy to see him play one last time and pairing him with his long time rival Nadal was a great touch. 

 

Everything was so well done and the ovation he got and the speech he gave was so moving.  At the end he was struggling to get the words out and fighting back tears, something that I couldn't do.  What amazing amazing moments from an amazing amazing man.  Federer, you will be in our tennis hearts forever!

French Open gets going this weekend and for the first time in 18 years Nadal won't be there to play because of injuries.

Good. One of the most overrated athletes in history. Up there with Bill Russell, Scottie Pippen, Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter.

Rivera def not overrated. Neither is Brady. Neither is Nadal. Its all relative I guess. Rivera shouldnt have been the first unanimous HOFer but not overrated. Brady isnt so far and away above every other QB but not overrated. Nadal essentially on par with Fed and Novak but not overrated.

Rivera blew two post seasons for NYY people gloss over that. He’s overrated cuz, like you said, he was the first unanimous HOF

Nadal is a one trick pony.

Brady played in a God awful division, almost always automatically got a BYE, had best coach ever and almost always a great/elite defense. Made a living throwing 5 yard quick outs to short white guys. OUT

Even if you ignore Nadal's 14 French Open wins, he's still won 8 grand slam titles.  That's as many as Conners and more than McEnroe.

Correct.  Nobody is debating he's not amazing.  He's overrated because he's mentioned in the same sentence as Fed and Joker which I think is laughable.

One. Trick. Pony. What’s his record against Joker in non clay grand slams?
