Federer: "if I'm not playing so well, that's when he wins"



Quote:
Brace yourself for this Federer quote:

"It's always me who's going to dictate play& decide how the outcome is going to be. If I play well...
... I will most likely win in the score or beat [Nadal]; if I'm not playing so well, that's when he wins."

Jesus Christ, and people said Nole was arrogant.

Roger and Rafa are two of the most arrogant tennis champions in history.

He's right. Federer doesn't play well because Nadal FORCES him into errors. Forces him to go closer and closer to the lines.

But let's just wait until the haters fill this thread with vile and hatred. Vamos.

That's what, it's 'on Federer's racquet' means, Roger's right.

But Nadal wins because it's nearly impossible for an attacking player to maintain the level of play that's needed to beat him.

Seriously is that not what every player thinks, If I play really well I win, if not he wins. But I know what Federer is trying to say though.

He's right

Same with Rafa, if he's not playing well, other top guys can beat him. When they aren't playing well against lower-ranked players, they can still win with their experience, but against the other top guys, when you aren't playing well, you lose that advantage of experience and top ranking and intimidation and your chances of pulling out a win when you're playing like shit are much lower.

Of course the haters will be here soon spinning their usual bullshit, but whatever.

Well he's right. Not everyone is a fake humble champion like Nadull or verbally fellating Nadull like Murray and Fakervic

Re: Federer: "if I'm not playing so well, that's when he wins"

Sounds controversial but it is the truth. Two ways you can win vs Rafito:
1. Hit through him
2. Out moonball him

1. is almost impossible on clay since Rafa's defense and ability to keep his moonballs deep is amazing. 2. IS impossible for any active player.
