As more people come to believe in something, others also "hop on the bandwagon" regardless of the underlying evidence. The tendency to follow the actions or beliefs of others can occur because individuals directly prefer to conform, or because individuals derive information from others. Both explanations have been used for evidence of conformity in psychological experiments.
There is no need to answer, but I will do it: some people believe that majority is more likely to be right than minority, so they go with a majority opinion. In this context, what these people say is what they think.

Do you have actual proof that it is REALLY what they think?

Yes or no?

Re: Who better? 2011 Djoker vs 2006 Roger Federer?

i was thinking today (and it burned) about what is really Federer and tennis' most understated achievment during all these years - its reaching all 4 GS Finals in the same season

if you think about it thats closer to winning the calender slam than anything

winning 3 in one season doesnt mean as much now that Nadull and Nole did it

but since Rocket Rod in 1969, who is the only man to reach all 4 GS Final in one year (and do it 3 times) not Newcombe, Lendl, Mac, Connors, Becker, Edberg, Wilander, Courier, Sampras, Agassi, Nadal or Nole

Rogelio Federer.

Re: Who better? 2011 Djoker vs 2006 Roger Federer?

Next year maybe we can start a thread about the Nole 2012 year. I'm curious whether he's able to improve; that would be on the 2nd half of the year then.

Now open for the 2013 subscriptions! Subleague for MTF currently the biggest in the contest!

Game will start with the Australian Open! Sydney / Auckland test week will advance as soon as the draws are available!
New this year: Cash Money prizes (no entry fee for the game)

I have as much actual proof as you. What proof do you have?

If you believe everything you see and hear on TV and on the web, you have a problem of the not small variety.

Now stop flirting.

Rogelio.

I'm pretty sure Nole won't reach all 4 slam finals this year.

The 23 straight GS semis is the only record of Fed's that I don't see ever being broken. Marvelous consistency for almost 6 years - 2nd place is not even close - 10 (Lendl/Laver) isn't it? It's hard enough not being injured or sick or having a bad day for many tourneys.
