It's getting more and more justified mate. I don't even know where to start from his little rant here. Sure, he's entitled to his opinion but parts of this interview are just ridiculous. He's sounding more and more bitter every day. Yes, we get you have been injured, yes we know it's frustrating but cmon mate... He basically wants tennis conditions and rules changed to accommodate his own agenda. You think you're the first person to be hampered by injury..?

It's bordering on tragic...

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.
Pure brilliance. Seriously. You hate with such a passion, it's incredible. I've honestly never seen the like of it on MTF. I always enjoy your posts for that reason.

I'm pretty sure most players deep down want conditions to suit his agenda. At least the guy speaks his mind. At the risk of sounding repetitive I bet Federer would get love and attention if he started making similar comments, but because it's Nadal he gets hate, no?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

I don't agree with some of his opinions, but I do agree with others.. all I'm saying is the guy has the right to speak his mind.

Of course he has the right to speak his mind, but doesn't the same apply to everybody else here? We can also speak our mind about his mind

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

But when Federer speaks his mind you would call him arrogant no?

Federer already draws enough adoring lynch mobs whenever he speaks his mind. You don't have to worry about that. In fact, 'Rogi' got torn into itty bitty pieces when he once dared to opinionate that clay is a sort of second-rate surface that requires a one-dimensional skill set. 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.

The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species.

I really don't think Nadal could seem a bigger douche if he tried...

That's nothing new for those who have been saying this for years now... Lol at him protecting the lower-ranked players. All he ever protects is his personal interest and his rump.

U all know im not a hater (besides my working place) but i hope this 25 seconds comment is a journalist Mistake or quote taken out of context bc i really really dont agree with this, a rule is a rule and any player who cant play by the rule should leave the game, tennis is bigger then any player no matter who is he


rafa should Keep a low profile, talk less with Journalists and fire all his PR team bc it starting to sound Ridiculous.

let's change the rules of tennis for me, no?

win at any cost.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.
