This is Federer's best start to a season since 2006. Since his absolute peak, that is.

You really find it hard going trying to find a bad thing to say about Roger.  He's got to have some deep dark skeleton in his closet, no way someone is that perfect.

Yeah this is a ridiculous season for Federer. 

His 2017 will pretty much end the debate on the greatest of all time, regardless of how it goes from here.

His first serve has been pretty poor too. If he can get that sorted, he has a real shot at another slam this year.

Nah, Nadal fans will say he was a shadow of his former self by 2017, so Federer's Australian Open was a fluke. In saying this, they will hope we forget Nadal beating the likes of Coria, Berdych and Ferrer in slam finals.

He is already light years ahead of the pack as far as the GOAT discussion goes but it would be fun to see him put a few more superfluous nails in the coffin.

It's a real shame Nadal has him in his back pocket when they were both at their peak :-)

:lol: Their peaks never overlapped. Pretty much everyone agrees that Federer's peak was 06-07 and Nadal's was 2010. 

The age difference between them covers the entire span of John McEnroe's slam-winning career. They are from two different tennis generations.

For what it's worth, I expect Nadal to win here. It's the closest thing to clay conditions that you can get on a hard court. Federer is awful here.

Bolloks 😝👍

Nadal has whipped his ass more times than I can remember 

And he will do it again pretty soon
