Federer was a joke. Djokovic pushed Nadal harder

And people thought that the only person that could beat Nadal was Federer.

Even though Nadal was pretty much untouchable this entire championship, Djokovic, IMO, was Nadal's greatest threat...and the stats prove it. He won more games against Nadal than anyone else (12 games vs. Federer's pathetic 4) and had a set point.

Djokovic is Nadal's greatest threat....not Federer. And he better thank God that he didn't face Djokovic in the semis.

i have been saying that for 100,000 years now. Djokovic has surpassed Fed on all surfaces.

Fed is bloody lucky he didnt have to face Djokovic in the semis.

Re: Djokovic gave Nadal the sturnest test at this RG

Federer had an off-day, so what? MC semi-final Federer scared Djokovic so bad he had to fake a retirement. No way Djokovic is better than Federer on clay. Roger can challenge Rafa when he's at the top of his game which he under no circumstance was today.

Roger Federer. Legend.

In that case Mathieu is better than both as he pushed Nadal closer at RG than anyone.

Excuses, excuses. Fed got 4 games. Even if he wasn't at the top of the game, he should get more games than that.


Novak Djokovic

Re: Djokovic gave Nadal the sturnest test at this RG

Djokovic pushed Nadal a little harder. You know "a little" Wasn't even a push! If Nadal was really focused to embarrass Djokovic, he could do it. I believe there is some kind of friendship between Djokovic and Nadal. I know fans would like them to hate each other, and that there is love between "Federer and Nadal", but some games in match Djokovic - Nadal, Nadal just wasn't there, and kept making errors which he usually doesn't. Today Nadal was on every single point. He wanted to demolish Federer so bad, while I believe he really didn't want to embarrass Djokovic, and if he wanted, he could do it!

I don't like Nadal.

Nobody can test Nadal on clay at the moment. He is just too good on that surface

Um, this was not an off-day for Federer; this was a supreme day for Nadal. Nadal deserves all the credit here.
