Re: Murray expects Nadal to make RG Final, Thinks Federer will have trouble.

Nadal already has a press agent.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

A hilarious admission of self-irrelevance.

And for a while I thought he reminded me of John McEnroe. Not anymore.

I like it too, he has learnt well from Rafa Nadal, take pressure off yourself, unlike the talkers.

Re: Murray expects Nadal to make RG Final, Thinks Federer will have trouble.

Yes an admittance of self irrelevance on clay or simply mounting pressure on others. Rafa seems to do it a lot, he's never favourite for the slam he's won 4 times. In a row mind.

If he really said this then I expect him in the SFs.

And treat those two impostors just the same"

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

Re: Murray expects Nadal to make RG Final, Thinks Federer will have trouble.

Mind games or modesty? Does Murray expect to reach the SF and then lose to Nadal, or does he not expect to get that far? Either way it's a good way to take the pressure off himself.

I have to agree it will be much harder for Federer.

Re: Murray expects Nadal to make RG Final, Thinks Federer will have trouble.

LOL maybe he's trying to bother Federer, because we know how much Federer likes to be a favorite. This is a sneaky way of bothering Federer because most people who read the quote will be interested in Murray's assessment of his own chances, they won't think of Federer being the main point [but Federer will].

Re: Murray expects Nadal to make RG Final, Thinks Federer will have trouble.

I personally can't believe he said this as he is in the same half as Nadal. That's insane.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

Re: Murray expects Nadal to make RG Final, Thinks Federer will have trouble.

mind game

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.
