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 as someone else mentioned, Toni said that Nadal had been terribly unlucky in last year's US Open ... because Federer had 2 match points against Djokovic !
Rafa said something quite the same : "he's been very lucky : I really thought Roger won it"
And the funniest was Moya saying "the real one who was unlucky in this semifinal was not Federer, it was Rafa how horrible for him !"
That said, I was not surprised that the one who started that thread was a Nadal-fan also Fed-hater (actually quite many Nadalfans have become fans of Nadal's because
they hated Fed, the opposite -people who have become fans of Fed because hating Nadal- doesn't exist),
but I'm very surprised about the reactions of Nolefans here, including Nolefan
First of all how on earth is this a problem for Djokovic ?
Secondly when I read "stupid old fool" what do people want ?
When one reads MTF, one has the impression that every match is won in advance, that all this is scientific, and experts on MTF who are not fools of course do know, and that players should just admit this "scientific truth" rather than trying their best
And of course once "MTF's science" is contradicted, everything gets back in the opposite direction
Deal with it but Federer still tries his best on court and he believes.
It reminds me of Hewitt once asked in Wimbledon :
"You keep on losing like that, how do you do to come back and keep on believing and trying ?"
Hewitt answered : "maybe that's why I'm in this seat and you're in that one"
