Re: Which AO final was better

Well maybe you should have gone to last year's Wimbledon final, US Open final and this year's Australian Open final. I mean, you were in Melbourne already for the semi on the 26th, why didn't you stay for the final? Your presence would have turned the tide for Rafa. By the way, they get full sized trophies for the US Open. True story bro.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

The truth is, it never really was a rivalry.
Below are what's considered other rivalries:
Emerson - Laver (18-49)
Connors - Lendl (13-22)
Wilander - Lendl (7-15)
Edberg - Becker (10-25)
Chang - Agassi (7-15)
Next to these, Federer's record of 9-18 doesn't look that bad. H2H records don't have to be split for it to be considered a rivalry; a player just has to win his share. It's not as though his winning rate against Nadal is 10%; their last two meetings have been split 1-1.

Re: Which AO final was better

I remember after watching AO 2009, I was really pissed and was like ugh what a horrible final. I re watched it like a few months later and it was a fairly good match, well atleast the first four sets. despite liking the result of the 2012 final a lot better, 2009 wins for me.
