Mary Pierce or Rafael Nadal

I was just watching the match btw Ljubo and Nadal, and the commentators were saying that its hard to gauge how long Rafa's matches really take because he takes so long btw points

I guess my question is both Pierce and Nadal have their endless routines, who takes longer?

Pierce....good lord...

Mary Joe Fernandez used to take forever as well. She could play a 6-1, 6-0 match for 2 hours on grass.

Re: Mary Pierce or Rafael Nadal

I love them both. I guess I just like fellow OCD people. Novak takes a long time, too, and I like him.

Oh well. It doesn't bother me. I don't see why it bothers so many other people.

I love Mary but it gets annoying when she takes so long, and since I'm not a fan of Rafa it just seems like an endless wait. Get playing already jeez

Mary is a headcase and needs time to collect herself. She isn't going to change, though.

Mary and Djoko are lovable, they are so warm on the court you can forgive them sometimes

Re: Mary Pierce or Rafael Nadal

Do you think it can interfere with the results ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Mary Pierce or Rafael Nadal

I really like Mary, but I have to say that she definetely takes more time than Nadal between points. It seems like she takes forever...However, I do think that Nadal does take too much time and should speed it up just a bit.

Re: Mary Pierce or Rafael Nadal

Pierce is the worst... and if those tactics aren't working she goes with the injury timeout
Nadal is bad but Pierce is worse by a long way.
