Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Nadal's just a disgrace to the sport. The sooner he is gone, the better. I've given up hope of him ever ceasing to persist with such petty tactics.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Making Rosol replay his serve because Nadal was 'not ready' was not cool, considering how slowly Nadal was serving.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

foot fault bullying designed by officials to help their player is a much bigger concern than rafa's antics.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

They really should ask for the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award 2010 to be returned, this was a total disgrace.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

His antics was too erratic, i actually think what he was doing is what made him lose. It is because the more bullying he was doing and the more complaining he does, Rosol was loving every moment of it and was fighting back, saying come on's to Rafa. It's good that the umpire wasn't bullied by Rafa. I just hope that they put Eva Asderaki to umpire Nadal sometime, he will get defaulted due to time penalties. Also, it's something to vent your frustration on umpires, that is expected but to place on your opponent is something else, very rarely seen.

Are you a clown? 'Thread isn't necessary'. Like you're some moderator. If the topic doesn't interest you, don't enter the thread you tit.

Anyways, I thought the bump at the sitting was an accident, Nadal was relatively magnanimous in defeat, I wouldn't expect him to be all smiles, he is a winner afterall.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Sigh. What a bunch of bitter people. His sportsmanship was just fine. And his behaviour was impecable after the match.

"OMG, he very slightly "bumped" into the another player, THE HORROR!!!".

Well, he did it all and bumped the guy and complained to ref. But he did sign those autographs for those kids so I forgive him. It was tough to know that he is not as good as Roger in real life as a human being or in the rankings. Soon he will be overtaken by Murray too He lost a lot of points today

You are 100% on target. When Nadal started his antics that told Rosol that Nadal was losing his cool and was consumed by fear. As soon as a player realizes his opponent is scared to death he should gain huge confidence. Notice that Federer always tries to project confidence at times of stress even if he has to fake it.

Ah. the bump is slight. But Rosol breathing is a big nuisance.

Nadal fails your own double standards.
