OMG Nadal lost in the 1st Rd on Grass...Is his career over?

I know title of this thread sounds absurd, but thats what threads about Roger losing it sound like. I dont see anybody running around in panic because Nadal lost on grass, which is his worst surface - like Roger on clay.

I know that. My purpose was to say Roger has many years left to win on clay. It's not a big deal.

It's alright that Roger has not won a Slam yet. He has made it to the semis of both. Still has not lost in a final. And he is the man that won 3 Slams in a year without a coach. He has already proved himself.
The purpose of this tread is not to "down" Nadal, but to show how people jump to such extremes.

Welcome to Overreaction Central which borders on Bandwagon Avenue.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I think thats funny. You seem to be an intelligent person. I hope understand, the title of this thread is meant to be sarcastic. I know many will not get it. But I am hoping the intelligents will.

I get the thread, my comment was probably more serious.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Even in ATP site they`re overreacting. They usually put online the photo of the one who wins the match

The Colombian Toolshed and the Troll kingdom isn't far away either.

Well, the traffic here on Player Hater Boulevard is awful so I'm afraid I won't make it.
