So, Rafa & Roger are cursed.

If Roger wasn't so damn good, Nadal would have been #1 long time ago... but thanks to Roger, Rafa is gonna be the player more weeks #2 forever in history (I hope Voo can put some stats here).

If Nadal wasn't a bloody clay bitch, Roger would have been not only GOAT, but the best clay player in history long time ago... but thanks to Rafa, Roger is considered shit on clay by some tards... and Grand Slam keeps fading away.

So the curse is on for both, and for the ATP... because what we got to change history? Nole, the Joker? Kolya, the fixer? Nalbi, the Eater?
Ah yes we got Tsonga, le Mirage... I forgot about him....

¿Any thoughts of a change in the near future?

I don't know what are you exactly thinking about
Nadal is incessantly the No. 2 in the world since 25 July 2005 (after triumph in Stuttgart) it means he "sits" on this position for almost 3 years

Re: So, Rafa & Roger are cursed.

If my aunt had balls, she wouldn't be my aunt.

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: So, Rafa & Roger are cursed.

This is kind of like saying that if Rosewall hadn't been born Laver would have won every single major and important pro event in the 1960s.

This is boring and tiring. Yes, if you revel in this dream so much then I'll give you this: if Roger was playing against chumps he would be unbeatable.

There. Nothing more needs to be said.

A set of Wilander's go a long way in beating Nadal.

This thread, it's time to bring out the orchestra.

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: So, Rafa & Roger are cursed.

If Nalbandian cared, he would be not only the best clay player, but also the best player in general.

I think somebody cursed him. It must have been that George's mutant aunt with balls.

Re: So, Rafa & Roger are cursed.

If Federer wasn't around, then Roddick would be a multiple Wimbledon champion, but it means this.

Would be
Could be
Maybe

What ifs count for crap.

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

If Sampras was not born Agassi would be all time best.
