Do you want him to go back to his standard, boring interviews? PR teams are the most disgusting thing in sport, completely taking away creativity and originality and coming up with the same, politically correct answers.

Of course the pathetic Nadull-tards on here nod their collective empty heads to anything Nadull spews out of his mouth.

Nadull has cheated his way to winning matches simply by taking 45 seconds between points and now he's whining he can no longer cheat.
You mad bro? Time to get laid I think. Lol.

Rafa

Now I know why Toni follows him everywhere. He's not just his coach, he makes sure that Rafa keeps his mouth shut as much as possible. Actually I like this Rafa. Gives us more entertainment when he is not censored by Toni.

Is there anything to be excitment, creative or original about this? It's the same arguments all over again and I am fucking tired of them. Again, as a player fan, I want him to give answers in a tennis court. Or do you think this non-stop whining will improve his game?

EDIT: BTW, your bad rep just proved me right

And people have the right to dislike what's on his mind. Nobody is forbidding Rafa from speaking his mind, but personal opinions sometimes have consequences, and this is one of those times. I remember when Nole lost to Rafa at FO years ago, he said in the press conference that in his opinion he was in control of the match, even though Nadal trashed him badly. Now, that was Nole's personal opinion, but MAJORITY of critics and fans were laughing.

No, not really. Not in sports anyway. Without strict rules, what is the point of competitive sports? Some players work really hard on their endurance/stamina, and they WANT their opponent to play the next point as soon as possible, certainly within 25 second rule. They don't want them rested. A fitter player who works hard on his stamina/endurance should be rewarded for his hard work, and an opponent that breaks the 25 second rule to rest is not fair.

Nadal dismissed changing his style to try to extend his career.
''I'm not that good to be able to reprogram my style, I only have one, it's virtually impossible to change it,'' he said. ''I'm confident that my body will hold up. I'm not sure it will happen next week, or next year, but I'm confident that it will be like before again.''

Sure, and others have a right to criticize him.

The right to offend is integral to freedom of expression.

Nadal's arms strong!

It certainly is a good thing that Nadal didn't follow his first love of football. I don't think he would be able to convince the ruling body to allow him forty seconds rest every other minute. Face it people--Nadal's impressive physicality is a myth.

Staks tearing new assholes as usual.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

According to the clay-lovers Rogi's innuendo was a sin of the highest magnitude, deserving of capital punishment or worse.. So enough already with the faux pity for Nadal's legal privileges.

Look nobody is questioning Nadal's inalienable right to free speech. It is the content of that speech that we also have an inalienable right to question, and that is what we're doing, thank you very much.
Couldn't have said it better.
