All this hating has got to stop!

This is my first post here, alhough Ive been an avid reader of this forum for a while now.

Im here because I love tennis, and I love that there is a place where people with the same interest for tennis as I have, share their thoughts.

However all this hatred between the people who like Federer and the ones who like his opposition is getting out of control I believe. A little banter is alright, and maybe there is sarcasm in there that I dont get. But you do not have to belittle one players ability to enjoy the other ones.
Instead shouldnt we celebrate that mens tennis is looking brighter and more competetive than for many years.

For Fed fans, nobody is saying that the new breed is better than Roger, but you cant deny yourself that these players are extremely talented.
Nadal is on his way to becoming the greatest clay courter ever and for two years, the second best grass court player.
Nole is 20, and this year is showing consistent improvement in GS, while being the second best player on hard courts.
There are Gasquet, Berdych and Murray waiting for there breaktrough.

So for me personally, Im really exited about the future of tennis and cant wait for next year!

You have a lovely attitude.

Good luck hanging on to it. I mean that sincerely.

Re: All this hating has got to stop!

Hello Xman. Good post.

I don't think it's predictable about Nadal's future because of his knees and the fact that his style is wearing on his body. Djokovic has made an amazing improvement ! I agree about him.

Roger Forever !

Re: All this hating has got to stop!

Like communism, it's great in theory, but the reality of this fiefdom, is that it won't work.

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".

Re: All this hating has got to stop!

I think a separate forum for trolls (read RFK) and other anal retentives should be set up. The people who want to talk tennis and perhaps disagree some can stay here.

It was once proposed that there be a Nadal-Federer argument forum I'd propose a Nadal-Federer-Djokovic argument forum

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: All this hating has got to stop!

Yes, I proposed a Federer-Nadal argument forum.

When Djokovic wins a Slam, then he can get an argument forum.

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".

Nadal had to build up his hatred to get his position and Nole should do the same, though he does have the fact that he beat Nadal and Federer in the same event in his favour.

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".
