1/2 means a half. How would I feel about him if he'd have a half slam? I would feel sorry for him.

Re: How would you feel about Nadal if he only had 1/2 slams

I wouldn't mind Nadal's brutal tennis if it was just being effective on clay courts, which is the only place it should work really. But now, everything seems to play like clay and we don't get to see beautiful attacking tennis anymore I don't even care that he has 6 Roland Garros because he is truly a beast on clay but he had no business winning the career grandslam if everything hadn't been slowed down to a pulp.

I'd feel he was a half slam wonder.

Re: How would you feel about Nadal if he only had 1/2 slams

i am asuming this means 1 to 2 slams not half a slam, is being a runner up half a slam? lol. i would think that,s a lot of work for not much reward, instead it,s a lot of work for a lot of reward !

Re: How would you feel about Nadal if he only had 1/2 slams

He wouldn't he'd definitely have at least 5 French because he earned those, 6th title he was easily beatable but Fed is his GS helper. The 2008 wimbledon he earned fair and square, played amazing that summer. All the others are debatable. So, I feel he's mostly earned his glory, and been lucky on the way too.

I feel exactly the same.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

7 Wimbledon titles

He'd work hard to improve and win that other half that eluded him first time around.

Somehow.
