If Nadal Retires After Wimbledon

I know most of you are making a good fist of being bullish about the future, but I'm still finding it extremely hard to come to terms with the gaping void that Nadal's immediate retirement would leave. I fear that we'll find it near impossible to fill the deep chasm theRAFA(tm) has left.

Love him or loathe him, he's pleasured each and every one of us for six glorious years. The early days on hard court were frustrating of course. We were teased and tempted with flashes of brilliance, but our collective yearning to be fulfilled by a young boy from Spain was often left unsatisfied.

Patiently however, he was expertly groomed through his youth, broken in slowly by unkle tony to be able to play on both hard and grass. Whereas other promising kids were pushed hard by their coaches at a young age and gave up until later on in life, unkle tony let the piggy time to breathe. He was in and out with his results for the first couple of years, and sometimes due to his knees, he often pulled out early.


It was worth it of course. Through gentle coaxing, he grew from a callow youth into an explosive colossus. Each climax he has provided us with since has been followed by another soon afterwards. His career has snowballed and we have gleefully lapped up the full load of glory he has covered us with. It was a pleasure to witness the fluid exchanges between him and his opponent week in week out. Of course we've had to take the rough with the smooth, but it's been a hell of a ride.

It was in 2008 however, with the slowing down of the wimbledon courts that his moonballs really started to mature. That summer they finally started dropping into the courts at wimbledon, and as they did his confidence erected so much that some of his opposition didnt even try.

Wait until 2009 at the french open and that is when he finally came and realised what he was doing and where he was going, so he had to clean up this mess in preperation for wimbledon. This however didnt happen and the mess just got bigger and bigger every day after he kept erecting himself to practise every day for 4 hours.

It just got too much in the end and that ended up with the climax of his career.

And now, we have to face the back of our thePIGGY(tm). We must somehow bite down hard and take it like a man, with the search for a new atp fan boy star(tm) soon to follow, that person must step up now an embrase the task and as long as he is given the appropriate protection he will do it.
What will tennis life be like without the piggy(tm)??
The answer is I don't know. All I know is that his discharge is going to be very very hard to swallow...

I can't make up my mind whether to take this seriously or not. If you're spoofing, you're brilliant, if you're being serious, you're probably wrong.

If Nadal retired after Wimby,I would accept Murray better
Tennis would be the same when Nadal was still playing. Nadal doesn't add or take anything away from the game really.

Yes, he does add a lot to the game.

His moonballs are sometimes orgasmic to watch, and with each and every day that passes with him at number one in the world he is touching a lot of kids worldwide.

Re: If Nadal Retires After Wimbledon

An injured Nadal who might skip Wimby is already creating a void imo.

"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.

If he skipped wimbledon, he would create a void so massive that we would need a suprise player to come along and fill the void with his massive moonballs and firing personality. Maybe that player is big dick(Norman), he is certainly big enough and talented enough. Maybe even federer if he used a 100" frame, however as we all know... its not the size its how you use it.

Borg and Henin are the closet thing I remember to that in the unlikely event it did occur.

Maybe he needs to limit the use of topspin

He should definitely retire, he is playing a little too short these days.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
