Watching it as a fan was never fun, but it usually got the win for the player.
Yes, that's just exactly how Mac topped Borg. Or Laver Rosewall. Or Rosewall Gonzo. Or....

Is Fed a turkey yet?

Well, sir, it's this rug I have. It really tied the room together.

No, but he's a bit of a chicken... unfortunately. He just can't quite get over some of the mental humps and bumps he runs into when facing NIDal.

Federer is making Rolex look bad.

They better give me a million dolar contract and let me wear those watches for them.

It appears that Nadal is back to using his physical advantage on the level that Djokovic is using it nowadays. Smart move by him, that is the only way he really stands a chance against Djokovic....or any other top player.

Re: AO 2012 SF: Nadal def Federer 6-7(5) 6-2 7-6(5) 6-4

What a shame. Even when he's utter trash, this disgusting excuse of a tennis player continues to reach slam finals. I seriously hope that Djokovic loses, otherwise it will be another utterly dreadful final between the worst top 2 of all time.

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 2 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 630-174...
TITLES: 44 and counting...

Lleyton Hewitt has little to do with this, so why do you bring him up? Sorry to tell you this, but that poster is correct. Nadal is nowhere near being considered the GOAT, and never will be. I hope you can live with this fact.

Can you break that finger? Why on Earth would you do that? That's disgusting. Honestly, you're also bitching about him thinking he's the champion of all champions. He has 16 grand slams and is the best player to ever play the game. Of course he's the champion of champions. He's the GOAT.

He may not be able to play Nadal, but we all know who's ultimately the greater player.
