Re: Rafa: Roger is the best

it's not like he is not telling the truth, results-wise it isn't even close, not to bring up records and everything else, he still has a long way to go if he wanted to catch up with Roger.

bet Djokovic wouldn't be saying that when (if?) he is finally #1, not his mother at least.

Re: Rafa: Roger is the best

Rafa's a very fine fellow, who fully knows how to acknowledge his major rival's achievements. Just the way that particular rival has done so all the same in return. Returning the Compliment, that's how it's called. Never hurts to do that, does it?

If only their mutual fanbases could be so generous and behave like their favs... sigh.

Re: Rafa: Roger is the best

It's all a big fucking game to these people.

They know how to play to the tennis crowd which swoons at the most superficial shows of respect among the top players because it redounds to their own self-satisfied view of themselves. "The players are cordial. Ergo I must be a better person for following the sport."

Just once I'd like to know what these guys really thought of each other, instead of bearing witness to these assinine stage managed affairs.

Re: Rafa: Roger is the best

I don't think it's purely a game or just false modesty for the sake of image. Of course, it does make make him more marketable in these politically correct times.
But does anyone think it is tied to the mental side of the tennisfight? From a young age, Nadal has been thaught by his uncle to remain humble and to think of tennis as a game, not a matter of life and death that makes ones life worthy.
I think it is this (combined with a great competetiveness in games) that helps him to play point-by-point, hardly ever letting his head down during a match or getting negative.

Re: Rafa: Roger is the best

I'm beginning to wonder if he has some sort of ongoing bet with somebody which requires him to say this line in just about every interview he does.

Re: Rafa: Roger is the best

While i don't believe he is lying about what he says, maybe he is a little too modest at times. But so what the world is watching and people are listening. Everyone knows how easy it is for the media to spin things. Im sure he would love to be a keyboard warrior like many of the posters here on mtf with zero repercussions for what is being said.
