When The Hunter Becomes The Hunted, And Then The Hunter Again

There is a creature who is hunting the most prestigious prize in the history of tennis – a calendar year Grand Slam fourth title at the US Open and the all time record of 21 Grand Slam singles titles won.

This man began his professional career in 2003 as a hunter. By 2011 he was the No. 1 player in the world and instantly transformed from the hunter to “the hunted.”

He has been No. 1 for 337 weeks, the most in history, and he’s been year-end No. 1 six times.

Every other tennis player in the world wants want this man has – the honor and distinction of being the best tennis player in the world. They are plotting, scheming, devising ways to necessitate this king’s downfall and to take his crown. Every player in the world looks at him and tries to figure out how to beat him. They discuss with other players and experts. They study for weaknesses and flaws. They use mental warfare and media mind games to try to irrirate him, such as the time Rafael Nadal said this tennis tyrant’s obsession to win is “unhealthy.”

But all these machinations to destroy this man have not only failed, they seem to have made him even mightier. This year he has won all three Grand Slams and now after beating Kei Nishikori, Jenson Brooksby and Matteo Berrettini, he’s just two matches away from winning the US Open for his 21st Grand Slam and overall calendar year Grand Slam, which has not been achieved since Roger Laver did it in 1969.

Now he has reverted back to his hunter days. He is channeling is inner wolf spirit and energy to hunt for something beyond the reach of even Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Only three men stand in his way from making history – Alexander Zverev, Daniil Medvedev and Felix Auger-Aliassime, the other three US Open semifinalists.

Right now the king of the tennis court is resting inside a mansion in Alpine, NJ, in a peaceful, secluded property just about twenty miles from his hunting ground in New York City.

Tomorrow he will resume his hunt. And Alexander Zverev will have to be terminated.

Our man is a terminator. The ultimate warrior, the most awesome creation of tennis destruction the world has ever seen. He is a machine programmed physically and mentally to destroy every man that crosses his path on a tennis court.

The hunter has two days of work to do.

The hunter is coming.

    Djokovic looked great vs Zverev, the match was high quality and it looked super intense at times and at other times it seemed like a friendship match. Djokovic said after Zverev is one of his closest friends on the tour… Connect those dots…

    Scoop, if you believe their friendship may have been a factor, why do you think Zverev showed no mercy in Tokyo?

    Didn’t see the match, but wasn’t surprised that it went five sets.

    Sam, I believe Djokovic ran out of gas in Japan and all the distractions with other athletes sapped him too. Now he’s more focused by staying at the remote NJ mansion six miles from me. He wants this US Open more, Zverev needed to win Olympic gold, first major title, more than Djokovic needed it. Maybe he respects and likes Djokovic too much to break his heart twice (subconscious tank in the big moments?). Doesn’t really matter, we have the final we want.
