No, in fact he thanked Roger for beating Novak in the SF of RG last year - otherwise it would have been a year without a GS title as well for Rafa

Actually Tony did say something like "Nadal was unlucky Fed didn't win the semis"? What a compliment to Fed

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

As for US Open 2011 Nadal's serve was very breakable but then again Fed never takes his breakpoints, unlike Djokovic who does - I certainly wouldn't be confident for Fed.

While we are at it , he should have never won over Nole in USO 2007,2008, 2009 . I think his problem is that he thinks he is Nole, he is really jealous of him no matter what.

...and if Olderer didn't get most of his slams gifted to him by mugs like Roddick, he wouldn't be at 16 now, so it all evens out.

Of course it's exactly the same to lose 2 matches in 5 sets after having MPs then to win in 3 or 4 sets...

Would he like to have Novak's great run lately? Sure. Which player wouldn't.

Did he have such a run already? Yes.

I think Roger is perfectly fine with the career he has so far. No need to be jealous of the achievements of others...

There were much more to those matches than the sets. For one the schedule was against Nole

He never dominated his main rival and won the tournaments

He sounds bitter , condescending, dreamy, disrespectful and even cowardly because I don't think he would say this to their face. Not at all satisfied.

My point, in a nutshell, was, that it seems like if Djokovic doesn't stop Roger, e.g. RG 11, then Nadal will. But Djokovic might stop him first. Might not. But one of the two will do, unless Roger doesn't even get that far (RG 10, Wimbledon 10, 11). Always a bit silly to project forward based on the past, but in the last 8 slams Roger hasn't made it to the SF 3 times, been stopped by Nadal twice, and stopped by Novak 3 times. He has enough trouble beating one of them in slams now, beating both seems like a big ask. This assumes all three get that far in the draw but Nadal and Djokovic have been very consistent at doing so this last several slams.
Ok now I understand better : I had missed the "either ... or" in your previous comment, sorry

PErsonally I think that if he has one-day rest between those matches, there's no reason why, having beaten one of them, he could not beat the other one.

That said, I said "if he has one-day rest", and that's very important, because in 2010, Federer didn't know in advance that that one-day rest would be given by the rain before the final hence his feeling that "he had to win quickly against Djokovic" hence the fact that he played with too much offensive against Djokovic in that 2010 match.

Vida said that this sentence proves how much his defeats to Djokovic in USO semifinals have been painful,

personally I think that all he has constantly said about these events is that he was always concerned about winning the tournament first of all, not so much about the semifinal only.

useless old guy

Older Frauderer's fluke GS count = 16.

Older Frauderer's real GS count = 0.

Like I said. FLUKE.

He beat Novak in 2006 ....So much for being a fan of Roger:
1) You don't know your facts
2) You can't spell.

Goodbye .
