I disagree with you but I don't want to launch that other debate.

But in other periods of tennis, yes clearly Fed would have had more natural talents.

Anyway, even in today's period, Nadal still has his massive "Achille's heel" in his legs (and their adequation with his footwork).

And even if I also think that the H2H between Fed and Nadal is overrated and not representative at all on hardcourts.

Federer just completely copied the game of Sampras which is made to bore people out of their minds among other things. He is also massively backed up by tennis establishment and corporations. Players like Djokovic and Nadal play a totally unique game and they have totally trasformed it for the future. In the future players will copy Djokovic and Nadal but not Federer if anything.

This is just absurd. I might as well complain about Nadal serve-and-volleying too much and Djokovic using too many underhand serves.

I thought Federer didn´t play Djokovic there, but of course, I might be wrong.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

ok kids, obviously my opinion has left you speechless and defensive. That can only be because you see a lot of truth to it.

It's a disgrace this clown has only made the 2nd round of ACC. All the Djokotards must have been in euphoria after WTF, so they stayed on MTF in this dead period of the year and defended all the other Djokotards.

ACC should be held during WTF or in January.

What's up with insults ? Do my words come that close to the truth that you dare not admit?
Being popular? Coca cola and Mcdonalds are popular with the lowest common denominators. It doesn't mean that it is any good, just the poor taste of the brainwashed masses.

All hail, the Serbian version of heya



"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
