Federer admitting he was defeated by the better player on the day was never the problem. It's always been Nadull who comes up with phantom injuries, sicknesses, and bs excuses for his losses. Not surprising though to see a Fedal gloryhunter letting Nadull take credit for Federer's grace and humility
Hi, The Mad
ician. Now, u didn't refer to me by name, but i'm assuming u r referring to me from the tone of ur post so i'll answer to it/u as follows:
1. Nadal is a top athlete, playing a very demanding sport in a very physical manner at a very consistent level. If u think his injuries are "phantom" then u r an even bigger moron than I thought. Also that boy has NEVER used injuries or illnesses as an excuse for ANY of his losses. That is a "phantom" perception attributed to him. Brought on by idiot posters like u on this forum in response to honest and factual analyses of some of his losses by a few of his fans on here.
2. Federer, with the use of the word "sometimes", managed to grudgingly admit that he MAY have been beaten by the better player on the day in SOME of his losses. Thereby implying that he was the better player in his other losses and he therefore lost due to other factors...you know
. This just came off as condescending and arrogant. U don't have to see this as i'm not trying to persuade u. I know u have already drank the federer kool-aid. too late to save u now.
3. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should u EVER refer to me as a Fedal fan. this suggests that I am a federer fan which I certainly AM NOT. For the sake of his tennis I hoped I could be because he is a great player but his personality is such a big turn off that I can do nothing but dislike that guy. Plus i find his style of play and demeanour on court quite boring regardless of his great shotmaking. Just my preference.
Where u r confused is that I can actually dislike a player and still be respectful towards him and credit him with his accomplishments fairly. Foreign concept, i know
but try it
4. I am a Rafael Nadal fan through and through. I have been this way since that 2008 Wimbledon final and I will remain so forever. Regretfully late to the Rafa party i know but better late than never. I am NO gloryhunter. I have been his fan through great victories and horrible defeats and I have no intention of jumping ship when things go bad. EVER.
Rafa is a true champion and a spectacular human being. i don't have to give him someone else's humility and grace to justify my fandom (where exactly did i do this
). he has these qualities in spades; all on his own which is remarkable in someone so young. He is an inspiration to all
. Your guy could learn a thing or two from him
. Maybe some of it will rub off since they have been hanging out a bit more lately
