Poll: Federer fans, at this point, do you not really care as long as Nadal loses?
Obviously Fedtards want nothing more than to see their hero win more slams, and get closer to that 20 mark and chase some more history.
But I do wonder, once Federer is out of a grand slam, do they basically support whoever is left, no matter how much they may dislike said player, simply because Nadal is the one who is closest to Federer, and whether they like it or not, is going to have a chance to get very close to Federers slam tally, and if he can rack up at least two of every tournament, may have many things going for him to be called the GOAT even if he doesnt win quite as many slams.
I mean theyre happier to see Novak get a couple more slams, or even Murray, because they know they wont win many more.
A lot of people claim to not support Nadal because of his ugly style of play, but I think the over riding factor is they want to see anyone win with a lower slam tally, so that Federer remains so far above the pack.
"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "
