Has it ever happened in sports where a player gifts a match to his rival just

out of respect/ out of pity

i know it sounds stupid but can anything as such happen or has happened in the world where a player might feel for other and out ofrespect might want to help other thinking that this is his, most probably, last chance and he is great player and he deserves it atleast once in his life time.

they are two good friends with lot of respect for each other. will rafa feel pity for roger, will his inner self come to haunt him and make him realize that let roger have this one, he (your friend) deserves it as this might be his last chance to get the status that he deserves. can he have such a feeling.


i wish players were as good as im thinking. hehe
thats the only way roger can become the champ

now plz dont get serious over this, i know these are professional players and there is no as such thing (but who knows ...)

im just thinking the unthinkable

Rafa hates Fed and would rather die than let Fed lift the RG trophy

Probably not really on the scale you speak of, but Verdasco and Almagro surely must think Nadal is a barbaric Aztec god.

Nadal doesn't gift out matches to other players, but I'm sure many players have done this in the past.

Fed has kept Nadal from becoming #1 and has taken 2 Wimby crowns away from him.

Fed also has 12 slams. I doubt very seriously if Nadal would give Fed a time of the day, let alone his title as the King of Clay.

what was that score again in the last set in Hamburg in 2007? it was 6-0 in case you dont remember. Fed has a thrashing coming to him like never before on sunday.

so this is what it has come down to now. Federereeeeeeeeesians are actually looking for pity. he is only the one of the greatest ever to lift a racquet. why cant he win honestly and fairly. he gets gifted a sweetheart draw as it is.

Oh, okay. I was just wondering, cause you quoted me lol.

How many sets will Nadal lose from now until when he's holding up the trophy?

Yes but Nadal defeated him twice on clay this year, Federer should have both matches comfortably, like 6-2 6-1 on Monte Carlo and 6-3 7-6 (he did take a set) on Hamburg.

Davydenko gave the match to Vassallo Arguello.

Re: Has it ever happened in sports where a player gifts a match to his rival just

no one would be pity for roger, he already has 12 slams, its 4 times of Rafa's

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
