Linda, I didn't exactly think the title was positive. He is definitely trying to equal Borg's record though. I can change the title to "Time to attempt attaining Borgian status on Clay" if that makes you feel better

Nooooo, make it "time to fail to attain Borgian status on clay" that'll please her more Ridiculous thread title as it is now I'll inform George ASAP of your fangirlism delusion that Rafa is as good as Borg so he can come here and explain to you all exactly why he isn't

I am afraid that's as far as I can go to please Linda much as I adore her. As for the thread title I was waiting for some Borgtard to come and tell me Rafa will never be as great as Borg on clay. It turned out to be a Fedtard instead Do you think GWH will participate in MIT if I lure him in with this title.

tell him that the trophy is a t-shirt with shirtless Rafa vamosing and 'Clay GOAT' written underneath. That should get him begging to participate.

Hopefully, Djoker will fall in Federer's side of the draw and he will help Nadal get closer to #1
Haven't been keeping track of the rankings, eh?

We want Djokovic on Rafa's side so we can make sure he's as far away from #2 as possible.

Nah screw that be on the Cheeses' side of the draw so that Rafa can get closer to the number 1 ranking!!!

I hate positive threads cos whenever im positive bad crap happens, i never thought it was possible for him to win hamburg with everything going against him especially with the cow lover playing the best tennis on clay since 06 Rome (well it was just mindlessly going for his shots and then rafa makes a few unforced errors with concentration lapses and being a bit underdone cos of the thigh strain), and being worn physically! And then i saw 5-2 and the trainer and i thought yeh thats it hes gonna retire....

And he wins the damn thing.... But i thought Rome was in the bag sooo.... naahhhh Ill be negative

Re: Attempt to attain BORGian status on clay- The RG Thread

I BELIEVE Rafa can do it! So please put me down for a WIN. Thank you!


I hope Rafa will be 100% by RG and sweep them all.
VAMOS RAFA!

Life is boring without (Rafa's) fist-pumping.

hra87, I keep track of the rankings alright...
Nadal is #2 in the race, just 11 points behind Djokovic and he is #2 in the rankings, 360 points in front of Djokovic.
By virtue of having won Hamburg, Djokovic can go on the other side of the draw at RG and progress to the final if he can. If he does ... That would be great!

(sorry, please don't get offended, breath in, relax and read on)

Nadal beats him on the final. Nadal remains #2, although with Djokovic closer behind. Nadal jumps to #1 in the race and Nadal cuts Federer's lead in the rankings by at least 250 points ... Which greatly improves Nadal chances of attaining #1 at the rankings later on in the season (during or after the US open I hope).
Notice that if Djokovic had progressed to the final in Hamburg or Nadal had not won that final, then that Scenario would not had been desirable (by me and you) as Djokovic progressing to the final of RG would had deprived Nadal of its #2 ranking even if Nadal wins RG.
Besides, I prefer Djokovic and Federer battling each other and then Nadal beating the "survivor" of such battle than Nadal having to battle with both of them at consecutive matches.

We all want Djokovic behind Nadal, but we want Nadal to become #1 one day, don't we? I know I do ;-)

Yes, thanks!

I know Rafa probably won't win RG this year but, if he somehow pulled out the unexpected Win, think of the thread titles we could have next year
