Lets face it...we just love this domination!

With Roger taking 3 and Rafa taking 1, watching tennis becomes enjoyable for everyone in general.

If we have a third party entrance in this grand scenario, we'd really hate it.

Rafa's domination on clay and Fed's on the rest of the slams make for enjoyable viewing because it makes the rest of the tour look silly.

No?

Re: Lets face it...we just love this domination!

I have to admit, I'm looking forward to a GS final that doesn't have Fed in it. I think this will happen at AO 2008.

Two top players are living up to every hype. That doesn't excite you?

Only if you are gloryhound or a starfucker.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I love it! But Nadal will not win the French Open in 2008. Roger will.

Re: Lets face it...we just love this domination!

I will clarify the statement, as good as Fed and Nadal are, they need challengers and consistent challengers as well. Djokovic has shown something, but there needs to be others.

If I am a Federer fan who lives through his results, then it's great, though the collective panic by a lot of them when he loses a game is over the top.

Nadal fans bitching about Fed's dominance, but say it's ok that Nadal only dominates for part of the season and not the majority.

Believe it or not there are fans that appreciate the game, but not necessarily have a wank over Fed or Nadal.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

No. Rafa takes RG and Wimbly, Roger takes AO and USO!

Make the polls public, always more interesting.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nole's golden year is 2009.

Fed and Rafa should dominate 2008 as well.

Why not enjoy tennis exclusively through Fed and Nadal.

BTW George, how do I edit the polls?

I am an arrogant prick, not a delusional fanboy like Fedfan_2007 or the many others.

Just watch Nadal and Fed matches and leave the rest alone. See you are an example of a gloryhound. Tennis Fool is the best example, the guy has Federer, Nadal and Djokovic in his signature that is starfucker/gloryhunter at its best

How impolite.

Such rudeness coming from a senior member like yourself.

Not rude at all, just factual. If you want to be narrow, then that's your choice and I gave a perfect example of a gloryhunter.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

You missed your ride on the circus. I wanted Federer to win, but research skills aren't exactly very high on your list.

Oh! saying hurry up and get to 15 Slams as soon as possible really refers to Djokovic.

When Federer starts declining and stops winning Slams, go find another sport.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
