from everything i posted in here, all you picked up was that i was defending rafa from his haters?

the bulk of my posts on here have been defending my rightful opinion about a single word federer added to a statement that he said.
this has brought out the fed fans in earnest to let me know how wrong i am and some have been trying to ridicule my posts when a lack of a suitable rebuttal was evident.

the only time rafa's name has come up is from my response to some of these posters who are trying to make my opinions of federer about rafa simply because i am a fan of his. namely you, the mugician etc.
i have also used rafa to point out the double standards on here as they usually apply mainly to him.

note carefully, that i have been the only rafa fan in here(i think) for the past how many posts. everyone else has been federer fans(i think) who have been trying to beat me into submission for daring to utter even so much as a single letter in objection to their great one.
that's because the point i have been trying to make has not been about rafa. it's just my opinion(which remains unchanged) about federer. no rafa fans need to defend him because this is not about him. the rafa fans have actually only commented on the post topic and rightfully so.

Re: Rivalry with Nadal has forged stronger friendship, says Federer

I remember in a presser just before Miami 2005 Fed saying that people didn't realise just how good this guy (Nadal) can be - and that was way before a heap of these Rafatrds jumped on the bandwagon, and when people like SetSampras and SDG, then Shankar, were still shouting from any housetop they could find that there was no way Federer would get to, or surpass 14 slams.

How times have changed



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

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.

Quote:
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?

Quote:
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.

Singularlity, you DO know you're expressing way too much plain, ordinary commonsense for the WUM (Wind-up Mercant) to deal with?

It does feel weird stating something so plainly obvious, it shouldn't need stating at all.

OK.. Its just that you guys seems to interpret alot from their fake media images,persona. You tend to sway with media hype than substance of what takes place on court.
On a tennis forum your main focus is his personality as opposed to his tennis.

The law of nature,only the strong survive.




THE GREAT TACTICAL RIVALRY OF THE OPEN ERA
FEDERER 10 VS TONI NADAL 20
ADVANTAGE TONI NADAL
RAPHEAL NADULL,A PRETTY FACE & MUSCLE
NOTHING MORE

Fed 2 nadull 13 fed is nadull CLAY TURKEY. THE REAL ERA 2003-2010.

WTF? Can you actually read? You were defending Rafa from his haters in the match thread after he lost to Kolya in Doha. How can you expect respectable behavior from people for your favorite when you're spouting bullshit by the pound in this thread. Btw the OP is a Rafa fan, as well as Guy Haines and I_mac so I don't know what the feck you're babbling about.

Re: Rivalry with Nadal has forged stronger friendship, says Federer

People really believe that they like each other? Federer acts like a Nadull's buddy only because he's owned, If this rivalry was reversed he wouldn't even shit on the Spaniard.
That's the ugly truth.

RAFAEL NADAL PARERA

Career HIGHLIGHTS

2007|David Nalbandian strikes lucky to win against Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-0
