They think they have a shot against Nadal on hardcourts because, Montreal last year aside, Rafa's success on North American hardcourts at this time of year has been a bit limited.

So they're up for the fight a bit more.

Re: Why are Nadals opponents always fired up and Federers aren't???

Nadal has had to play better players this tournament.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

supersexynadal, it's not the case of his oponents not wanting to beat him, but Federer being a better player than Nadal

Word. and Nadal's alleged 'improvement' this year at the Open is nothing but an illusion, he would have lost in the 3rd round again had he drawn the same opponent.

Re: Why are Nadals opponents always fired up and Federers aren't???

Yes, this seems obvious, and might come off as Nadal bashing or whatever, but the truth is, Nadal is way more susceptible to upsets, barring clay. I mean, you have a player like Luis Horna or Youzhny who plays well and just takes all the wind out of Nadal's sails, and even the way Youzhny played today, you still get the feeling he'd be hard pressed to defeat Federer.

Nadal just isn't as daunting a task on non-clay surfaces.

I don't believe that was the question lol. The question was why do Rafa's opponents come out fired up and not Roger's. James is not gonna back down emotionally I don't think, he'll probably lose but not b/c he's not fiery enough

Well he was for the first set in Indian Wells then seemed to lose the fire fairly rapidly.

I actually hope he does a better job this time round.

Yes, I also think that's true. And I believe that Nadal is giving his opponents more surface for attack or aggression than Federer because in Nadal's game there is more aggression and I think some opponents take power from his actions when he is having a fistpump or sending over an angry look.

you say it, he 'would'
actually he didn't and it is an improvement
and had player XY drawn player AB at tournament CD he would have lost too

I think last year Nadal was just way too flat and physically not at all up to the task; he didn't play really well this year yet, but better than last year and yes, it's my subjective view on it.

Re: Why are Nadals opponents always fired up and Federers aren't???

Players know now that they have a hitter's chance if they are hitting big and cleanly. It has been done time and time again and they go out onto the court knowing they have a chance. What exactly works against Federer? There is no one thing that you can point to in all of his losses really.
