I would LOVE for Roger to go up against Nadal in the semis

Yeah, I'm at the end of my line but why wouldn't Roger fans want Roger to go up against Nadal in the semis? He will lose 90% of the time but even if he didn't play Nadal and makes the final, he would be up against Djoker and probably lose also. Why not be like Roger and take every small chance to reach Greatness? 10% isn't unworkable, and losing in the semis rather than final doesn't mean anything worth a damn for a player as great as Roger.

That's my take on things, but of course Murray could beat Roger too if he's lucky.

Do Fed fans agree with this?

Federer will still sadly lose to current Nadal. Sad but true. Nadal might not make it to the Semis though.

Absolutely. But we all know that Toni will order a loss before SF, as he knows The Dull would get his ass spanked this time. Dull plays Roger only when he thinks he can win.

I am planning on it, but the point I’m making is that there’s a misconception that Roger fans are scared of Nadal. I’m showing that we aren’t in the LEAST bit afraid of Nadal, but we acknowledge that Roger has everything to gain from a victory and nothing to lose (because of the match-up disadvantage reducing the meaning of Nadal wins).

Game over. Forever.

I don't think Fed is bothered who he will face in the F or SF, he just plays and tries to win against anyone, he never tried to avoid any player.

Re: I would LOVE for Roger to go up against Nadal in the semis

I actually think Federer fans are selling Roger a bit short against Nadal. If they were to meet in the SFs here I don't think the outcome would be NID at all. Federer has been the better player in recent times, and although Nadal is a tough match up for him, I still wouldn't be surprised to see Federer prevail here.

A lot depends on whether or not Nadal will improve as the tournament progresses, but as of now I feel like the odds are 50/50.

Re: I would LOVE for Roger to go up against Nadal in the semis

No. I prefer Roger facing some mug in the semis and Wawrinka in the final. I want Roger to reach the semis ... and I want Rafa to save the last Albino Rhino instead of playing tennis. Time is short and these creatures are all going extinct while Rafa wastes time chasing tennis balls. Disgusting

Don't worry. Rod Laver will be there to hand the trophy to Roger come the 1st of Feburary

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple
