NID. fed will dominate indoor season and will be the favorite for AO 2013, not.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

It's weird, I still get the impression Nadal is more pumped to play Federer than to play Djok. I think it would hurt Nadal to lose to Federer more than it would hurt to lose to Djok. Especially in a slam final. I think Federer is priority number one for Nadal, still.

does beckers 25-10 H2H vs edberg affect edberg's legacy

no.

who cares if nadal can beat an old federer

during fed's prime it was 6-8 and even then mostly played on clay

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

I don't get your logic. Nadal's only problem right now is Djokovic. Rafa simply owns Fed... why would it hurt more to lose to Fed lol?

How would you feel when you lose to the same player 7 times in a row? not fun.

Edberg's 2-1 Majors Finals vs Becker rightfully takes some focus away from the 10-25 H2H. Winning on the big stage counts for a lot.

Because Federer is the GOAT. The player all others will be measured by in history, until Nadal replaces him. In 10 years, nobody will care what Nadal's h2h is vs Djok (btw it's still 16-14 Nadal, and 5-3 at slams). Nadal vs Federer rivalry, will be talked about forever. So the bigger lead Nadal can get over Federer, the more glory historically for Nadal. Every Fedal meeting is historical gold for Nadal.

How would I feel if I lost to a player 7 times in a row? The same way Djokovic felt when he lost to Nadal 5 times in a row. 5, 7, it makes no difference.

I think it would make a difference as to when the defeats occurred. Exhibitions? Not a big deal. Davis Cup? That's manageable. Quarter Finals? That's not too bad. Finals of majors and the surfaces where you're considered the king? That's gotta mean more.

Honestly i think Fed don't even care about this as much as Nadal. He don't even try to compete like the past nowadays in their matches. Maybe he really think Nadal can't pass him in slams. No more exertion and he hand over the match when Nadal gets physical. Body is more impt to him i think. Unless its indoors and he knows he only need to exercise in short intervals for max 1 hour.
Their matches are not fun to watch anymore cuz Federer kept stopping the rallies(hit to net mostly) when he has a free shot. Its like pointless in his opinion that Nadal will retrieve and he will need to hit the same shot again.
