Spartan of the year 2009.

...is Mr. Nole.
  • He has the most wins (71 so far)
  • He played the most matches (89 so far)
  • He endured it! Unlike his rivals, he didn't cancel participation at any tournament due to injury or tiredness. Such strength can only be achieved by Spartan training and fearless spirit.

Anyone surprised?

Discuss and vote.

Re: Spartan of the year 2009.

spartan is someone who defeats Federer at slams so Nolito failed in that this year

(I don't want to minimize Toad's and Goat's wins over Clay Monster, but Rafa wasn't force in those matches like he was in previous years. Spartan Nole prepared him for defeat just like king Leonidas prepared Persians.)

That was tactical move and wise one, as following results showed. Health is the priority.

Spartan ≠ fanatic/lunatic.

It's hardly spartan-esque to quit a match for 'Tactical Reasons'

It depends on who it does, of course.
Just like defeating Nadal doesn't count, as he wasn't 100%, but beating an obviously declining Federer will always count... to some.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
