IS Roger on his way to become Rafa's bitch ?

2-1 for Nadal so far
Nadal is the only guy to have beaten him twice since Rog became number 1, thus being the only one to beat him in 04 AND 05, possibly Fed peak seasons.
He beat him on hard court and was 2 points away from beating him again this year in Miami (with pretty bad calls for Nadal BTW).
Do you think Fed can fear Nadal ?
In addition, Nadal can still improve and will get experience...
Did Roger finally find his master ???

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Number 2?????!!!!????
Well one thing is for sure Roger has problems with the lefty play of Nadal - but the more matches he'll play against him the better he'll figure out how to play Nadal. It took him a few matches till he sorted ot the games of Nalby and Hewitt but once he did they had no chance anymore.

So yes at the moment Nadal is Rogers bitch (or is it the other way round???) but I don't think for long...

Yes, pretty much I can tell you... Just give me more arguments and I will discuss...

For sure I'm a fan of his... Rafa is a phenomenon and I think Rog needed that kind of guy around. Plus the opposition of styles is quite clear... I have the feeling Federer is pretty uncomfortable to say the least against Rafa, so I was just wondering...

Re: IS Roger on his way to become Rafa's bitch ?

I seriously don't think so. He'll eventually lose matches to him, especially on clay and slow hardcourts, but I don't think he'll ever have like, a 5-win lead in their H2H. IMO, it might take long, but their H2H is gonna end up in Roger's favor. Unless they only meet on clay which I sincerely don't hope so, because that would mean Nadal would certainly lead their H2H, however that he's no good on other surfaces.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Re: IS Roger on his way to become Rafa's bitch ?

lol Federer will not be Rafa's bitch. Rafa's bitch on clay.... possibly... but as far as hard courts go, Federer still has the edge until Rafa improves his serve a bit more. I think overall neither one of them will be the other's bitch, and could form a good rivalry with a close head to head record.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: IS Roger on his way to become Rafa's bitch ?

I don't think so. Not at all. If Rafa makes it to the semis this week he'll probably lose to Roger. It's just the way it is. But I think they will have exciting matches in the future. Roger will make sure to bring out the "brutus" in him when they play.

RAFEL NADAL fot canya, NO ?

Re: IS Roger on his way to become Rafa's bitch ?

i think roger still suffer from getting used to rafa's lefty spin

and juz coincidently he played against rafa with pretty bad form

i think rafa is no way near roger in the grass court

and roger still got some advantages in hard court as welle
