Scary thought: Had it not been for Novak's intervention, Nadal might have had 13 slams by now!

Had it not been for Nadal's intervention, Federer would have had 22 Grand Slams (AT LEAST) now.

just the way sport works. Could have, can have - doesnt matter. Tis what it is.

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.

yes, but Roger winning 22 isn't scary. Nadal creeping closer to Roger's 16 is.

Think of what it would be like if Nadal moonballed his way to 17 slams, had not Djokovic grown stronger? Generations of tennis players would be fed on the thought that moonballing is the way to win grandslams. In fact, what you do the first time when you hold a tennis racket - which is put the ball on court - can get you slams. Talent, technique count for nothing. Only fistpumping and moonballing will get you 17. Scary!

In short, Nole saved tennis, no?

You're on the internet pal, you can bother looking up what you remember to verify them as facts before posting them. Posting nonsense gibberish based on your hazy memory and personal bias (which you admitted) does make you stupid. I misunderstood nothing, you posted wrong stuff and you admitted it and now you're claiming it to be a fail of reading comprehension on my part. Next time, look your shit up.

Nope. He is doing some amazing stuff for his career but he is in no way saving tennis. Not that he even has a chance today. Tennis cannot be saved today if ATP and ITF continue to turn a blind eye to the fact that their slowing down of surfaces had adversely affected both this sport and the players.

Worrying times for Don Toni and Nadal. He lost to a man who was far from his best and had played for 5 hours in his previous match. The scoreline flattered Nadal. Djokovic's poor break-point conversion gave Nadal a sniff of a chance which he blew spectacularly. 3 in a row . Never thought a player of Nadal's class would get owned like this.

He wasn't owned at all in that match, it could have gone either way. And reaching 4 slam finals in a row is an achievement, not something to be ashamed of.

I know this has been said many times, but it's worth repeating: if not for Nole, Nadal would be on 13 slams by now! Man, Federer must be having wet dreams about Nole these days.

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

who would have thought a player who runs every fucking ball down would have had 13 slams in such a short period of time. Essentially, anti-tennis could have been the GOAT in tennis? scary thought

horrible horrible, just horrible, he is on his way to get his 4th and 5th too, just horrible, poor rafa

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
