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.

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

It's a good thing you added "again in a tennis match", otherwise you would have (accidentally of course) brought up an interesting debate. I see Roger waiting for Rafa in a dark alley, yeah.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

No, I had to put 'tennis match' or else people would say 'maybe not in a grand slam but he will probably beat him in a non-slam' so I wanted to avoid that kind of dillydallying and simplify the issue for those with an awkward response style.

You open too many threads and post too little sense. No wonder people around here dont take you seriously.

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

the more nadal threads you created, the more the critics he got ...

my answer: yes. Nadal is leading in heads to heads at 13:6, not 30:0

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

I think yes. The ratio will continue to increase in Nadal's favour but don't rule out Federer in any time they meet again. Remember, Roger lost in 5 sets both in Wimbledon and AO.

"If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same"

Believe in yourself, Novak.
That's all I ask of you.

2011 & 2015 US Open.
2011, 2014 & 2015 Wimbledon.
2008, 2011 - 2013, 2015 Australian Open.

Go ahead and specify if Senior Tour is included.

But sorry, pointless thread. Open one again if both reach a non-clay final.

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

Although by continuing to lose in 5 sets Federer is showing that he can't win a close match v Nadal because he isn't clutch. Sometimes it looks better if you lose in 4 rather than losing in 5. Losing in 5 shows either you don't have the stamina to stay with Nadal or you are a choker. If Federer's going to win he will probably do it in a short match where he dominates.

Um, no.

It's better to lose in five than to lose in four. Do you play tennis?

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

Thank you for the pictures of Nadal and Federer,OP. I wasn't sure about who they were with just the title.





Nice useless thread btw.

Re: Will Federer ever beat Nadal again in a tennis match?

These guys are going to be playing each other until they're old men like John McEnroe and Pistol Pete....i'm sure Fed will take him down sometime.

Fed probably has a better chance far into the future, as Nadal's greatest asset(athletic ability) will be considerably worse.

Hopefully Nadal's legs aren't destroyed from his style of play at that point.
