will the next 4 years be as boring as early 2009 ?

since nobody seems to be able to dispose of Nadal on any surface too soon,
i guess male tennis will be very boring to watch until 2011-2012.

At least Fed had Rafa ...

the new King will dominate all surfaces, with 1, maybe 2 Grand Slams waiting ...

Boring sport...

does anyone see it differently ?

all boredom comes from within.

Murray will beat Nadal 6-7/10 on a HC even in grand slams.

Djokovic wil be 5/10 on a HC with Nadal even in GS and about 1/10 on a clay.

Tsonga/Davy/Verdasco maybe 2-3/10 on a HC against Nadal. Unlikely in GS.

Nalbandian????????

And 2009 hasn't been boring at all.

Go Andy!

why? does the truth hurt or something. i mean what really is the purpose of this thread?

its all depends on one`s vantage point and perspective. latest issue of the TENNIS magazine declares that tennis is in its golden age. check the article out. its a good read.

now with that said, i will leave your thread alone.

Funny mode : so what ? it's only been 5 years since Nadal won both Monte-Carlo and Barcelona (and the only suspense for RG is that he might get injured )

At least I have to say it's very practical for me to update the Race : I did it far before the match, just waiting the match point to post the new Race

Serious mode: on other surfaces don't worry : he's far from being invincible.

Is that supposed to be a joke?

yes, nadal will lose a few on hardcourt to various players but 60-70% against murray? that comment would only come from the retarded british media.

anyway on clay and grass, the above have little if no chance.

There are plenty of other sports. . . . .

And what happened to all the Murray-hype? He'll win a slam soon enough.

Nadal is still very beatable on HCs which make up the majority of the tour. Because of this, he's never going to dominate the game in quite the same fashion Federer did in his peak, which means it won't be as boring a period for the neutral observer than a few years back

When #1's a lock, shift your focus to #2.

Re: will the next 4 years be as boring as early 2009 ?

I can guarantee that Murray and Djokovic will put up a much better fight than Roddick and Hewitt did.

Why don't you wait for 2009 to end before declaring it boring (although it's been anything but boring so far. The AO was amazing, the masters have been quite eventful. In Miami both the top dogs were taken out. Murray has already taken Federer a couple of times and Nadal once, if I remember correctly. Djokovic is getting back in tune. Del Potro finally made a breakthrough. Roddick seems to be finding some form.

RG hasn't even started yet, and even if Rafa is the favourite, it would be interesting to see who makes it to the QF's, SF's and if we have a Fedal repeat in the final or something new.

Wimbledon is also sure to be exciting this year. It's hard to choose a favourite between Nadal and Federer at Wimbledon. Will Nadal hold his title or will Federer make a come back? Also, Andy Murray is going to be the crowd favourite again and this time he will play with more confidence, both against Federer and Nadal. Roddick is an outsider with a server's chance, and maybe this time Djokovic can put on a better performance.

As for the US Open, it's wide open to the top 4, and the top 10 underdogs might just be capable of pulling off some upsets themselves.

It's boring because 99% of players are brainless moonballing/grinding mugs. And Nadull is the biggest one of them all.

At least Rafamug's more handsome and nicer than Fedmug, Stepanekmug and Hewittmug.

Only Roddickmug's more handsome and clownish than Rafamug. Djokomug retires too often before the hour mark. Murraymug will slide and slip off the clay and grass tournaments.
