He came, he saw, he whined and he blasted.

But its wrong and as far as the point of the poster I was replying to, its amply proven wrong by my post.

Wait when there is no Federer to save the tournament from specialists. We will have to call Berdych / Raonic the Year End champs (not just Indoor Champs - mind you). See how fast it loses its charm then.
What is wrong with that? So Berdych/ Raonic do not deserve to be champions at any event? When Davydenko/ Nalbandian won WTF did it lose its importance? They had to work extremely hard and were deserving champions. You have to beat TOP 8 PLAYERS. Not an easy task on any surface. Post US Open it's always been indoor season . I see no reason why it should change just so that Nadal & Murray win more WTF. I don't see Novak fans complaining because he is good indoors and has won WTF. Let us try to be objective here. Is it mandatory that Nadal/ Djokovic have to win every important event? Does that mean tour is in bad shape? It makes it extremely boring and predictable. Its better to have at least some kind of variety and some new faces as champions. Why does the ATP have to dance on the whims & fancies of Nadal? Nadal should improve his indoor skills and be competitive at WTF. Not the other way round . There are hardly any faster surfaces on tour now. Why don't we have more grass court masters then ? In the 90 s top players were excellent indoors , now they are not. That is the only difference.

Why mention Murray? He is petfectly capable of winning the WTF, he has pretty good indoor results, but he just has not shown up at the WTF yet... I am sure that can change.

Good thread. I can see both sides but in the end I agree with the idea he should develop his game for all situations. Fed managed it. Djoko has too. I understand that it doesn’t favour Nadal but I think it is a weakness of his game.

Yes, this Nadal is a modern day Robin Hood. Fights against injustice and inequality, even says no to a private plane to Madrid from New York to save the Spanish state money. What a humanitarian this Nadal.

No problems can be found.

Re: Nadal: Playing the Masters Cup every year on indoor hard is not fair

Okay I usually sit on the fence with this kind of discussion but I'm fucking sick of Nadal and his whiny comments. They only seem to come from him - so fuck him. Why don't we change all the surfaces to clay then, no?

What a joke.

I love attacking tennis

And believe it or not, Rafa complaining about everything that doesn't suit him is a major reason why people dislike him, and he's been doing this for as long as I can remember.
So appositely said!!!!!

I've wanted this forever, but it's not happening apparently.
Obviously for dulltards, watching tennis forever = from 2008 onward.

Otherwise they'd have known that WTF was played in places like Shanghai, Houston, Lisbon, and the southernmost biggest city, Sydney, in a very warm month.

Dull is lucky they changed the court from carpet to hard, at least he still have a scant of hope.

Dull = fake humble, but when things do not go his way, he cries, screams and sulks like a baby ghoul.

I have enough of this fake disgusting behaviour by dull.

Aside from his true nasty-self, I wonder what other secret has been covered by him and his camp. But whatever it is, I hope we will find out one day.

Re: Nadal: Playing the Masters Cup every year on indoor hard is not fair

Indoor hard? Dear Nadal, the courts were so slowed (mainly because of you), that today even grass looks as clay. I miss the time when we had 4 GS's on totally different surfaces. Now we have RG1, RG2, RG3 and RG4. Thanks to your uncle.

THIS

And perhaps Roland Garros surface should be rotated to make it more "fair"
