Re: WWW Indian Wells SF: Nadal vs Federer

It would be good for the game if Federer beats Nadal or Nadal beats Djokovic. It is no good for any era to be this predictable.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

where is the turkey? nole is only 14-16 and he still needs 12 straight wins to make rafa a turkey.....as a matter of FACT, nole was nadal's turkey for a brief period when it was 14-4 to nadal.....

About 12 or 13 of Rafa's soon to be 19 wins were over Prime Fed

Re: WWW Indian Wells SF: Nadal vs Federer

luie just needs to kick nadal out of his house and be done with him general shanks. he is married to him and it is clearly not a good marriage.

this defeat is going to leave fed and the blind breed in such a bad state.....i think they both deserve this......fed for his over the top ego and the blind breed for the blind rafa hating.....
are you serious? you can not be this hard up over nadal and federer playing. why not just enjoy it when nadal wins(if he wins) instead of bashing fed at every turn...all the hating isnt necessary and makes it hard to wade thru posts trying to find something about good tennis strategy and who others think will win.

No matter how you stack it up, 16 is greater than 10 and when nadal gets to 16, then you have an argument but every player has a player that they up against that they have a losing record to, so it's no big deal except for people such as yourself, who likes to start ISH and you come off so mean spirited...

Yeah, but only 2 were on fast surfaces. On the other hand Djokovic also got only 2 against Nadal on clay so far.

mostly on clay

federer didnt start losing to 1 dimension properly untill 2008

it was 6-8 at the end of 2007

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

My helpful suggestion is to live stream it on tennis alternative.

Maybe Nadal would want to lose because Fed winning against him will give him the hope that he himself will be able to overturn the losing record against Nole at a later time?

We have to approach this multi-dimensionally.

It's closer than u think , in their last 10 matches Novak has won 9-1 so if he wins one more it will be 10-1 vs Prime nadull . This has never been the case with past all time greats even federer.

Ha ha nadull went on a 5-0 run against fed in 2008 when fed was 27 years .
Fed started losing to his turkeys during that time frame fish n steps(tunder lips) etc. nadull simply took advantage of a declining fed. While Novak is on a 9-1 run against nadull starting from 2009 .

Re: WWW Indian Wells SF: Nadal vs Federer

Nadull in 2 . Tennis to have another chunk of its life sucked out of it today.

The only thing I'm looking forward to in today's Fedull clash is whether Nadull's game is affected (if Nole wins) knowing his nanny is waiting to spank him in the final.

a) It's 8-2 in the last 10 matches, not 9-1
b) Prime Nadal is not 2011 onwards only - his peak is probably summer 2008-early 2009 and as for the prime it's probably 2008 to now with dips in between.
c) Nadal has always had an equal or winning record against Federer - even when he was 17 and even during Fed's 2004-2007 hegemony days. Novak still does not lead the H2H (I'm sure he will get there soon) even having played 30 matches. So to compare the Fedal and Rafole matchups is silly - they've had different dynamics.

Nadal won his US Open final & Olympics semi (in effect the final) against the guy who for him is the worst HC match up -Djokovic. Fed couldn't beat Rafa at the French and (credit to him) capitalised when Rafa wasn't there. Rafa also beat the best on grass, Federer, to get his first Wimbledon. All of this just shows that Nadal has done admirably in both his main rivalries. Losing to Novak so many times (primarily on Hard Courts) is nothing to be ashamed off and he's also won 16 times.

I was speaking of Prime turkey . Novak is on a 9-1 run against nadull from 2009. They are both in their primes 11 months apart . Nadull beat a young Novak with a lot of medical issues once Novak matured its curtains for nadull , despite a 2 day rest he can't be a hapless Novak , similar to fed against nadull . The so called rivalry is headed in one direction , nadull has no wagers to hide.
