Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

Pete Sampraas and even Andy Roddick are correct they both said Roger has no rivals. Given the fact Roger once again won 3 out of 4 slams in a year for the second time in three years is an amazing accomplishment. I think for Nadal to get to the top he's got to do well on hardcourts there is no other way around it. Yeah Nadal reached the Wimbledon final but he had the softest draw on earth. He beat three qualifiers and no top 10 players to reach that Wimbledon final. Roddick had a soft draw at the US OPEN. Yet Roger Federer never gets a soft draw he always seems to have to go through the best to win. And for Roddick to say this is very honest indeed. Roddick also took a shot at Nadal saying he wasn't a rival of Federer either. And this is true. Yes Nadal leads Roger 6-2. However, Nadal is a clay court specialists he has yet to breakthrough on the American hardcourts. Nadal is young but i feel like the other kids like Murray and Djokovic are more naturally talented then he is. But right now Nadal is no.2. Players are starting to figure Nadal out. Nadal is excellent on clay but I believe Roger Federer is truly a great legend and he will figure out how to win the French Open he's too good.

Re: Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

Roddick and Nadal are TennisAgenda's viagra

"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: Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

Damn, a day late for the arse clown qualie draw. Check the alarm on your clock dude, you might miss work tomorrow.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

Well Rafa owns Fed and Fed owns Roddick so no there aren't any rivalries between these 3. Though I can easily see a great rivalry between Nadal and Roddick.

Re: Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

Nadal beat Baghdatis in Wimbledon.
Baghdatis is top 10.
Stupid Fedtard Logic.

My brilliance once again blinds the challenged Fedtards.

Re: Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

I am glad Rafa leads 6-2 in the matchup category and not 9-2 in the SLAMS WON category, at least.

It shows 4 wins on CLAY, and two wins on h/c when Roger was tired after just winning a prior tournament. Roger also lost to Murray in Cincy.

Nadal does have the advantage on clay....that isn't a surprise.

Roger Forever !

Re: Roddick and Nadal no Rivals of Federer

First of all, Roddick should not be anywhere near a rivalry talk.
Nadal, regardless of surface, fatigue, coaching, and this, that, and some more, IS a rival.

Since he struggled in the US hard court season, I think he has to prove again that he can play well on surfaces other than clay and reach finals to face Fed.
Fed also will have to beat Nadal again to prove that he can beat Nadal on surfaces other than grass.

Sometimes I wonder if Federer fans realize how lame they make him sound when they go on about how he lost because he was tired.

Then again if I was him and knew I was facing Rafa yet again in another final I probably wouldn't get much sleep the night before either.
