sick?. interesting. The way the fan of Novak Djokovic has justified the excuse.

When Novak wins in SF. An injury of Roger's back. sick. A decline of age. These become a cause similarly. Do you say that it is the same also as it?



Roger Federer had a slump of sick influence repeatedly. And present, he has already declined.

We know it.

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Re: Federer vs Djokovic. Who is the favourite for the Olympics?

i honestly don't get it.

who is the current grasscourt major winner? who did he beat to win? how can you favor the loser in the same exact scenario just 3 weeks later?

you can hope and dream as, thankfully, anything is possible in sports, but can you really rationally believe he's the favorite?

oh and please, spare me the he was ill crap.

I'm not 'handling' anything. It's not up to my interpretation if the man himself claimed to have felt ill. It was also very obvious to anyone who watched the match with his eyes.

I know there are many people here blind to actual facts, who watch their favourite through their hearts. It's cute. But facts remain.

But anyway, if they both manage to meet, then I would say

Djokovic's patriotism >>>>>>>>> Fed's patriotism and the Olympic gods will definitely assist him due to this.

what Prejudice.

The number of times that Roger Federer played a game from the Davis cup. It is already larger than Sampras and Nadal. Roger held too much many games, when young.

However, it was not rewarded. Switzerland is a small country.

You cannot understand Roger Federer's patriotism.


lol

I voted for Federer but Fed has a long history of olympic chokes and often plays badly in Davis Cup matches. Best of three is a disadvantage. Djokovic gets the bronze.

Who is more likely to be upset?

Does the fact that the tournament lasts 1 week only and hence the grass is less worn out by the final weekend favour Roger?

Discuss.
What do you guys think about the question in bold.

Do you think the grass will be in good shape in the final weekend? And will that help Roger (should he get to the finals)?

Re: Federer vs Djokovic. Who is the favourite for the Olympics?

It should be but the hotter weather (for the first few days) might have an influence. Let's hope it rains for the decisive stages .

I think so too. But since I've read in other Olympic related threads some posters saying that djokovic is the favourite I thought to make a thread about it.

IMO Roger is the favourite because he moves better on grass than djokovic does.

WWW between Fed and Djokovic? Neither. Young and Harrison are going to the finals, and Young will win. When will you guys start realizing the facts?!
