He's right

Nadal is a legend, he should be shown respect.

Re: Nadal "only the best champions play bad and win"

link plz?
i know, nadal's so humble it's true what he said, but he shouldn't try and pull off the humble guy image and then say this kind of thing.

Arrogant? No. True statement. That's really what makes a champion. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

He didn't play well, and only biased haters, which you clearly are, will say that he did.

Re: Nadal "only the best champions play bad and win"

he just said it during the press conference

anyone watching british eurosport can confirm

other gems

"some days i play as world number 1 and some days world number 30. but to be number one you have to have more days as number 1"

"there's no pressure for me to win 6 french opens"

"i've made 6 finals this year. only one man has done better"

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Nadal "only the best champions play bad and win"

That is hardly arrogance. He's just attesting to how good the top guys are that they can play at a fraction of their level and still win slams.

Yes, he's right, of course.

But, if Fed was the one saying it, you would jump on him like a famished tiger on a limping gazelle.

No, that inclines more towards competition being a load of shit than them being that good.

Re: Nadal "only the best champions play bad and win"

Only trolls jump on Federer and call him arrogant when he says obviously truthful statements.

Seems like this is just a bashing troll thread.

Re: Nadal "only the best champions play bad and win"

It may be true, but it does *sound* arrogant. He won the match in three straight sets and then said he was playing badly. Indirectly, he's saying he's so much better than the opponent that he can beat him comfortably while playing badly.

If he were to come out and say directly after a victory, that he's so much better than the opponent that he's just beaten that he didn't have to play very well, it would be almost the dictionary definition of arrogant. So saying the same thing indirectly makes you sound arrogant.

But yeah, it's true.
