The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

MTF loves its wars, but it'd be nice for a little bit to just put that aside and marvel at these guys. Turn it onto HD and then sit back and enjoy.

Re: The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

No sight is sweeter for me than Federer in slow motion.

Neat to watch Rafa too to see the energy he exerts (in matches more than practice).

Federer fan, writer, tennis player.

Poetry? He's a haiku I wrote about Nadal:



Hitting the moonballs

A Scientific Marvel

Run Rafael Run

Re: The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

Gracefully florid Federer and overwhelmingly athletic Nadal.
both beautiful in slow motion
I felt a bit uncomfortable watching the too flexible Gymnast and the clumsy Murray.

Viña del Mar Delray Beach Estoril Båstad

Washington = unofficial 5th Slam

Re: The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

No.4 is David Ferrer.




lol

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: The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

Slow motion clips are dead boring unless they're for analysis.

Re: The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

Well guess you can't change the negativeness of MTF even if you try. For me Murray is the most boring to watch strokes wise - Djokovics forehand is quite interesting even if not his best shot. Neither of those 2 have the charisma of Nadal or Fed though. Both of them are so unique in their shotmaking and different to each other that it makes an intriguing mix.

Love watching Nadal's practice - just a different level of athleticism to the era of Sampras etc.

Well you didn't call this "interesting strokes in slow motion" did you? You called it "poetry in motion" and as much as I admire Nadal's athleticism I wouldn't describe Nadal or Djokovic's strokes as looking "poetic" or graceful.

I won't commentate on Murray so as not to offend.

Re: The Big 4: Poetry in Motion

Even better:


Tennis Fucking Sucks


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.


I respect Pure Tennis. First-strike, all-court, offensive tennis. Players who succeed here can succeed in both an offensive and defensive eras of tennis. Impure grinders like Nadull, Djokovic, and Murray could never win in an offensive tennis era.
