Re: Nadal supporters delusional

I like to use punctuation when I type, personally.

Anything can happen. injuries, a slump... just plain old going-off-the-boil. I think Nadal could get there. I don't especially know or care if it happens as I'm a fan of nobody mentioned in this thread so far (though Roger is cool)

Isn't the current Roger much better than when he was 19 ??

Why the current Nadal can't improve ??

I have no idea if Nadal will be able to be number one, but i don't understand why some persons compare the current Federer with the current Nadal when this isn't objective , Nadal is still developing his game and Federer hardly has things to improve ..

Within some years we will know the answer, meanwhile it isn't ver unfair to compare Nadal with Federer

Re: Nadal supporters delusional

some federer supporters are delusional, think he can stay on top forever....

dont get me wrong, i like federer, but no one can be no.1 forever! people have to accept the fact that one day, he will be taken over, if not nadal, some day, somebody will!!!

but i still think nadal can be world on.1 someday, maybe not next year, maybe not take it from federer.... but he will!!

I meant that when a player is 24 as Federer is right now you have a little margin of improvement in your shots, that is you can improve a bit this shot, but if you hasn't been able to hit it amazingly so far , it's very difficult that you can improve a lot this shot in the future.

Fed's backhand can still improve , above all hitting high balls and in his backhand return , but his margin of improvement is very limited , on the other hand Nadal can still learn to volley , to hit more flat, to be more aggressive etc, it's only a matter of age

Re: Nadal supporters delusional

If Nadal supporters are insane and delusional for thinking that he has the possibility to become the number one than we're in good company.

Federer said that he believed that Nadal would be the next number one and McEnroe also said Nadal has the game to challenge him for the top spot.

Re: Nadal supporters delusional

This place needs more Fed trolls.

"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: Nadal supporters delusional

I don't find it fair, either to compare Nadal with Federer right now! There are so many different things...first of all the age! Nadal is only 19 years old, an age at which he is developing his game while Federer is 24 and his game is really complete! I think Nadal will be number one...maybe not next year but someday not very far...And Federer will not be nr.1 forever. If not Nadal, somone else will take his place sooner or later! That's the way the system goes, I guess..

Goooo SAFIN ~ BERDYCH ~ MURRAY ~ SIMON ~ NALBANDIAN ~ SODERLING

Re: Nadal supporters delusional

It's funny the bad memmory of some persons thinking that Fed was already an all-surface player when he was young..

At the current Nadal's age , Federer's record on clay was 3 wins and 12 losses , even he lost in a row his first 11 matches on clay ..

With this stat i only try to mean that watching this Fed's stat maybe someone could say in 2000 ( this player will be a bad player on clay in the future ) and nowadays we all know that there are only few players on tour better than Federer on clay . Federer learnt to play on clay .. Why can't Nadal to learn to play on carpet and grass ??

Nadal is improving day after day , some months ago people said he was just a claycourter and he has shown that this was a bad definition since he has won two TMS on hard and reached another final .
Some months ago it was almost impossible to think that he could win a TMS at indoors and he has done it , i mean he's improving day after day and his game and playstyle on carpet and grass will improve ...How much he will improve ?? Nobody can answer this question, but as i have said before , to compare the current Nadal with the current Federer is an outrage . Nadal needs time to show how much all-surface player he can become...

Well, when the people in white jackets come to take the Nadal fans away to the loony bin, we'll be sure to throw you in there too because anyone who thinks a player has maxed out his talent and potential at the age of 19, when there are definitely many areas left to improve in the players game, deserves to be taken away with the rest of them.

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