What is more important for Fed fans: Federer to win, or Nadal to lose the USO?

Personally I want Federer to win. The reason I posted this thread is because I've seen some hate over Nadal achieving a Career grand slam. What are your thoughts?

Re: What is more important for Fed fans: Federer to win, or Nadal to lose the USO?

Apologies for sounding a bit direct, but have you considered the fact that being a Federer fan and being a Nadal fan is not something which is mutually exclusive? As a fan of both I'm motivated by the thought of one of them winning rather than for someone to lose. Moreover, unless they both make the finals, there is no guarantee that a Nadal loss will result in a Federer win.

Secondly, I don't understand some of the hate directed at both Federer and Nadal recently. Can we not just sit back and enjoy the tennis / respect their achievements for a change?

A Federer win could kill both of those birds with one stone.

But that isn't the question I'm asking.

I think if Nadal loses to Misha today, Fedtards won't care much about Federer's defeat.

I'm sure that's not true.

I can easily tell by looking at their posts if they play tennis.

Out of all the players left in the draw I like Nadal's style of tennis the least, therefore I want him to win the least.

But nowadays I like Djokovic and Federer equally, maybe Djokovic a bit more, so I'm not sure I'm a "pure" Federer fan.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

If Nadal doesn't win USO, Fed can loose to anybody else 0-6 0-6 0-6. I don't care.

Re: What is more important for Fed fans: Federer to win, or Nadal to lose the USO?

You know, I respect Rafa.
I like some aspects of his tennis.
And I have no problem of his career slam. (Well... The bad thing about that is the tards in MTF, they will be so stupid... As usual).
I want Federer to win, and to get 20 slams, or more... He's the best player in history, I enjoy so much watching him play.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.
