40 UEs explains the outcome of the match

10 less clayray would have won this match

good that dull is spending as many time on court as possible

ROGER FEDERER : GOAT

Fabrice Santoro (legend), Novak Djokovic, all the brazilian guys, Del Potro, Zeballos, Rosol, Dodig, Darcis, Wawrinka, Dolgopolov, Ferrer

Great play from both player,
Andy played brilliant
Rafa shows why he is the king of the clay, he fighted back when 2 break at the last set.

Stakhovsky,Delbonis,Gulbis,Nishikori,Kyrgios,Monfi ls,Cilic,Seppi more and more people are not afraid of Federer the "paper tiger".
03-07 is the weakest era for tennis

The one who lose to rafa 9 times and Novak 8 times in grand slam is the goat
Wilander: Federer played during the weakest era ever.
John McEnroe: Rafael Nadal is the best ever, even with a first-round Wimbledon loss
Agassi: Rafael Nadal as the best player in the history of tennis, ahead of Roger Federer.
Pete Sampras: Rafael Nadal Can Pass Federer and become the GOAT

Re: Rome QF: [1] Rafael Nadal Parera def. [7] Sir Andrew "Clayray" Murray OBE 1-6 6-3

Insane match. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Andy's level in the first set was unbelievable. The second set was alright; some good tennis. The third set.....fucking intense! Insane topsy turvy shit with brilliance sprinkled throughout. It's a shame Andy ran out of steam at the end but holy fuck I don't even care he lost. Epic match...credit to Nadal for hanging in there. His stamina is fucking insane at times...and credit to Andy for continuing to tough it out until he had nothing left. Best I've seen him play in ages which is a great sign....

Fuck...this match!

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 11 WINS, 5 finals, 11 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, 1 Davis Cup title...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 558-166...
TITLES: 35 and counting...

Murray ran out of gas and the end was uncompetitive. Hopefully Dimitrov can end this nonsense joke in the next round.

Rome QF: Nadal def. Murray 1-6, 6-3, 7-5

14-5


Sent from Verticalsports.com Free App


Rafael Nadal - The Greatest of All-Time

14 grandslams - Olympics Gold - 4 davis cups - 27 masters 1000 - 67 overall titles
Career Golden Grandslam - Most titles at one grandslam - At least 2 slams on each surface
10 consecutive years with a slam title - Slams on clay, grass and hard in same year
3 year end no.1 finishes -141 weeks at no.1
9-2 in slams vs Federer - 9-4 in slams vs Djokovic

One could only imagine what his totals would be if it weren't for his many setbacks/injuries. Truly an icon.

Same old story for Murray this year, running out of gas in the third against anyone in the top15. He had two relatively easy matches before this too, barely played last week, and didn't play Barcelona.

Undeserved despite what Sky Sports Rafa is telling me.


Andy Hardray

Wawrinka - Kokkinakis - Simon - Ferrer - Nishikori

Fognini - Paire - Evans


There are two types of tennis fan in Britain. Those who think Andy Murray is boring and those who watch tennis.

Why should he be. He took an average of 30 seconds between his serving points, and Murray reciprocated today.

Re: Rome QF: [1] Rafael Nadal Parera def. [7] Sir Andrew "Clayray" Murray OBE 1-6 6-3

good match overall, although abysmal from Nadal in the 1st set

what I find most interesting about this match is how BAD Nadal's forehand was yet how GOOD his backhand was

this is one of the few cases in which I think Nadal won the match because of his backhand being SO solid

good match from Murray considering the circumstances, he did fantastic at switching to an fro, from defensive to offensive tennnis

Nadal in the second and parts of the 3rd looked a bit like his old self, very focused and like an animal in terms of intensity

unfortunate ending of the match but the third set had a lot of superb points. Nadal will probably make the final but it would be a tough task to expect him to have the energy to beat a wayyyyy fresher Djokovic (most likely) there. good luck to Murray at RG, at least its apparent physically he is back to his normal self and there are no noticeable back problems

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3
