How many slams will Novak acrew before Fedtards stop supporting him?

More of a fun thing, but id be interested to know.

Its patently obvious to me as a Fed fan people see Nadal as somewhat of a danger to Federers 16 GS record. I think if Nadal wasnt the greatest claycourter of all time people wouldnt worry so much, but seeing as the guy is a lock for at least a couple more French Opens at some point, If Djokovic 2.0 haddnt come along and Nadal had won all those GS finals in 2011, I think Fedtards would really be starting to worry. I think had Djokovic not come along Nadal would have a real shot at at least getting to 16 slams.

So what im saying is, think that if Djoker gets to around 9 or 10 slams, the support from the Federer fans will start to waver more to maybe Murray or one of the younger guys, given that will be at least a few years from now? Maybe someone else will come along and spoil the whole party though.

Nothings for certain in tennis as they say, except for Federer losing to Nadal at Roland Garros.

But what do you say? I think obviously it depends on his age. If Nole is 28-29 with 9-10 slams I doubt there will be too much cause for concern, Noles style is just as taxing as Nadals and it will take its toll.

But the support does suprise me, as Djokovic is not exactly an attacking player, just not as defensive as Nadal.

I think there will be a lot of support for Murray too, but only if hes on Nadals side of the draw. People dont exactly want Murray beating Djokovic with Nadal waiting in the final.

Re: How many slams will Novak acrew before Fedtards stop supporting him?

If Joker have 10 slams at this time next year, it will start totaly and ultimtly fall of this forums. For 2 simple reason :

1. Milion Noletards on mtf

2. Milion Fedtrards and flame wars between them

Armaggedon is coming...



Vamos...

Re: How many slams will Novak acrew before Fedtards stop supporting him?

Fed fans won't stop rooting for Nole (when he plays against Rafa) since no way in hell he is reaching 16 slams. Let's get real here. I even doubt Nole will win 8 slams let alone winning more than 10 slam and having a chance to break Fed's record. That won't happen.

Re: How many slams will Novak acrew before Fedtards stop supporting him?

I have feeling that nadal tards will stop calling him great serbian slayer before. Actually think this is one of reasons why start da game isn't coming back . As one of biggest pro nole nadal tards recent happenings were too much for him to keep cool head with serbian warrior

It's not just Fedtards.

Normal fans like me do NOT want to see Nadal or Djokovic taking advantage of pathetic homogenized conditions in their favour to break the slam record against a mentally weak tour.

The Djoker and Federer have followed slightly similar paths to success. In the beginning Federer was a serve and volley player. That was not getting him anywhere so he pretty much became an aggressive baseline player. When the Djoker first arrived he was pretty much baby Agassi with his brand of baseline attacking tennis. That got him a major but success dried up just as the courts slowed down. He went from being an ultra aggressive baseliner to a medium attacking baseliner and that has brought him greater success. Federer changed his tennis style around 22 whilst the Djoker did it around 23.
One of the things Federer had to change was his mentality, he toughened up and worked extra hard. We all know about the Djoker's mental struggles, he has worked on that to the point that he is the best fighter around.

Federer used to have a poor record against Hewitt and Nalbandian. For him to succeed he needed to reverse his poor record against these guys and he did it. Like Federer the Djoker has had a poor record against Nadal and Federer himself. Djokovic is now doing what Federer did, he is turning the tables in his favour.

Djokovic will not get anywhere close to 16 majors because his game is not efficient enough. Federer and Sampras held their service games easily thus putting pressure on the opposition. Djokovic does not have that luxury. Changing his action pretty much ruined what was developing into a very potent first serve. Coaches should not tamper with a player's service action unless a player has had shoulder problems or something. Anyway the Djoker deserves 4 or 5 more majors but he will not get 16. Nadal on the other hand could potentially crash the 16 slam record.

Re: How many slams will Novak acrew before Fedtards stop supporting him?

I don't think Nadal will get to 16. At best, he's looking at around a total haul of 14 – probably a couple of French and the odd Wimbledon/Australian. The three major finals that Nadal lost were huge in determining whether he got to 16 – he would likely be at 13 now if not for Novak's breakthrough. That being said, I don't think Djokovic will even come close to 16 – perhaps 10 or 11.

You mean the support Novak gets from the Fed fans is not genuine?

This I'll agree with.

If not for Djokovic, Nadal would be sittin' on 11-13 slams right now, and the Fedtards would be in full panic mode.

Luckily for them, Djokovic turned the tennis world upside down. Now with him at 5 and Nadal at 10, the Fedtards will be rooting for Djokovic to continue to beat Nadal, but only until he gets more than Nadal. For instance, if Djoker wins 13 slams, and Rafa is on 11 or 12, the Fedtards will root for Rafa then. And so on.

Same as any fan group, really, we are all human.
