Nalbandian booed by crowd

Richly deserved too. His performance was awful (as was his giant peach outfit)

Well done to the New York crowd. They say: either show up and put some effort into it or don't bother showing up at all. That match was a waste of everyone's time (Roger's and the fans who paid for to watch that crap).

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

Let's take another look at that great performance put in by your golden boy in the first round of this event before you start pissing on other players, clementine nightmare.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

Did they boo all Sampras' opponents, not named Agassi?

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

Someone needed some vcash or some needed posting time to come up with this. If your intent was to be insulting, you missed the mark badly, dear. Thanks for playing.

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

David no va a poder dormir porque unos gordos come-hamburguesas lo chiflaron con la boca llena, seguro

EDIT: At least this thread makes more sense than the "Roger Federer has no dress sense" one

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

And anyway....I booed him briefly. Even I realized how badly he performed, but I get no joy in making a thread about it. Tasteless...classless...

So what happened? Did he tank the match?

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

As I said in other thread, coming from a person that quotes from Peter Bodo´s site, this thread makes sense and it doesn´t surprise me at all

Precisely, cause I am sure neither Federer nor Sampras stepped up to the plate when it mattered the most.

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

I think he was booed when he broke a racket when losing the second set. So? What's with that? Is he the first player to do it? Do we really need a thread for this?
In fact, I heard much more cheering for David than for Roger, but I might be biased

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

He made some tame errors in the third set, but I think Federer worked hard to break him down and get that double break lead - by then he had just run out of ideas and belief. I don't think it was the mind that let him down tonight as much as the serve, which has of course been observed numerous times about him. Federer just has too many chances to get into his service games virtually every time in the course of a set. If he'd held onto the 4-2 lead in the second, we'd be in the middle of a tight encounter right now.

Re: Nalbandian booed by crowd

He didn't play that badly, otherwise he wouldn't have had all those break points. It was just unfortunate that he couldn't hold serve and Federer played well on the bps. I don't see a lack of effort from Nalbandian but maybe after the marathon matches of the past few days, the NY crowd has been pampered to expect matches of similar intensity and duration.

Like I said, someone needed vcash and was spoiling for a fight. For someone who claims not to be a fan, this thread just proves what a closet fan this person is. What a waste of energy!! This thread is useless. Moddies, do your job.
