If Fed was to break the rafa clay code..

and win RG and most of the pre-RG clay Masters would your tennis intrigue die? As a Roger fan I’d love to see him do it, but a small part of me thinks would I care after that point? Would he for that matter? And of the neutrals would it seem like enjoying one of the all time greats or would you be thinking ‘he’s killed it for me’…

Not happening.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: If Fed was to break the rafa clay code..

depends on how it happens. if he fights hard to accomplish this I'll be happy for him, but will be a little board with it all.

if he wins by luck, fluke, or just general lack of competition. I'm sure it won't be as sweet, neither to me, nor to RFed himself.

disagree...most people applaude agassi for having a career grand slam rarely do people say he beat a nobody like Andrei Medvedev to capture RG

This generation of tennis died a long time ago as it became so predictable. I think, even if they don't admit it, most people are waiting for Federer to retire or start losing to gain more interest in the sport

I'd rather Fed break the Rafa Asspicking Code.
