Yeah . Because you are only great when you never defended a non clay titleand hold the longest stall for no.2

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

Oh damn, was hoping to watch Rafa, hopefully he shows up in Doha and gets a match or two played out.

I just hope he doesn't pull out of Aus Open - that would really suck.

Djokovic, Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Thiem, Nishikori, Raonic

Congrats Djokovic on winning 2016 French Open and becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win 4 consecutive majors!

It's easy to see why the banal backup is so sad and afraid.

They did the same last year, don't you remember? Novak was ranked #1, yet he had to play one match before getting to the semis, where he met Roger, who had been given a bye, in spite of being ranked #3.

Last year some people said that that's why Roger lost so badly to Nole: because Nole got extra practice. Maybe this time Nole will lose to Berdych or Ferrer, they are the only 2 players who will get an extra match before the semis this year.

This one and Hopman Cup. These two are the only exhos I watch precisely for that reason: players actually want to win and it's all about the tennis and not so much about goofing around -although I remember Mahut playing a Hopman Cup mixed doubles match wearing a dress .

the "QF" between Murray and Tipsarevic is still scheduled : the winner will face Almagro who replaces Nadal

Hopman cup is just different, I love it. you get a little bit of everything and it seems that all players involved do care.

These fedtards have selective memory.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

Really? So Almagro gets a bye and Murray doesn't?

I read yesterday that Murray-Tipsy was going to be the other semifinal, that Nadal would not get replaced. Maybe they have already sold tickets to people expecting to see Murray play tomorrow.

Whatever, it's just an exho... But I was really hoping to see Nadal play here. Not only to see what shape he's in: I miss Rafa. Tennis isn't the same without him.
