i have quoted the part of federer's statement that i objected to and explained why i found it objectionable. did you miss it in my posts? the onus is not on me to do any more than that when simply statiing my opinion.
Apparently you believe that admitting to sometimes losing matches because of your bad play discredits your opponents. You haven't actually made clear why
this is the case, or why other players should be offended by such a mundane truth.
with regards to your last sentence....shouldn't he? i mean that is what you guys think Rafa should do with all his losses isn't it? and there is paranoia and mayhem on here if there is even a hint of any other reason given by him or his fans(even when a blatant knee injury or a raging flu is staring you in the face).
Well, if we extend the same standards you're applying to Federer to Nadal, then Nadal can't even admit he lost because he played badly, let alone because he had an injury! Does that seem reasonable? From my perspective, though if it's the truth
, then what's the problem?
Why is federer allowed to say "sometimes" about his losses?
i want you to be very honest here if you can; take exactly the same statement given by federer. imagine it carefully in your head. can you see it? good.
Now imagine that rafa said it.
You mean imagine Rafa had said "sometimes I lose because I play badly"? I don't think anyone would bat an eyelid over such an obvious and banal truth. I think everyone accepts that Nadal doesn't play well in every single match
, and that sometimes he loses as a result. Nadal himself has said as much, on numerous occasions.
