If Rafa wins tomorrow, will tards finally stop assigning asterisks to RG09?

Now that Rafa has reached the final and has a chance to win the USO tomorrow, will Nadaltards and Fedhaters finally stop putting an asterisk on Fed winning RG, similarity will the Fedtards and Nadalhaters stop trying to devalue Rafa's win?

If Rafa doesn't have to go through the 5-time champion/6-time finalist to win his first US Open, then tards should stop trying to use the "Roger didn't have to beat Rafa to win his first French Open!!!"> argument.

So basically, can the fans both sides just agree that you play whoever is on the other side of the net and it doesn't matter if you don't beat the multiple time champion as long as you win?

If you use this logic, then Nadal's USO is tainted and undeserved.

Nice try but Nole is already a GS winner and seeded #3.

Soderling was a nobody and he still is.

The situations aren't comparable. Nadal was always the one stopping Federer from winning the US Open. Federer has never stopped Nadal at the US Open.

Because he was never good enough to make it that far!!! Your basically saying it would have been better for Fed to never make the RG finals before winning it.

There being no Del Potro here is a bigger asterisk than no Fed.

There should never be asterisks to begin with.

You beat who you draw. If you win 7 in a row, you deserve the title.

I hope so, but haters often defy logic and reason, so I don't imagine it will be any different here...

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Tell that to all the people astricking the RG09 title.

Fed had #5 and #3 seed to get to the finals. Nadal had a #8 and a #12

No I'm not saying that. I don't believe in asterisks, or at least in the sense that they carry negative connotations.

These are different situations. Before his streak of losing to Nadal at Roland Garros Federer lost to other people. Nadal is almost at the same age Federer was when he began going deep at Roland Garros and began his streak of losing to Nadal. It remains to be seen if Nadal will have a similar nemesis to overcome who keeps him from completing his career slam.

Nobody intelligent has ever seriously put an asterisk after any slam champion. No, not even the ones that Agassi won against Clement and Schuettler. Or that one that JCF won. No, not even for Tojo's. In short, only idiots and trolls apply the asterisk. That, and those of us who are funny and know how to use one properly.

That being said, that you think Nadal facing Federer in a USO Final in 2010 is somehow equally as daunting as Fed facing Nadal in any RG final ever, is very, very cute.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
