Here's a Quiz for You!

How many times has Federer ever celebrated a win against Nadal? And how many times has he sat on the sideline while Rafa was celebrating?

Re: Here's a Quiz for You!

You should have requested a wildcard for the arseclown contest when you had the chance, I'm sure the tournament directors would have been impressed with this dazzling show of form, but alas... too late.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Here's a Quiz for You!

There is always next year.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

My initial suspicion was that this was this poster's 1st post, but now I realise she's been here since July 2002

Re: Here's a Quiz for You!

Please! All the slams are done with. What's wrong with nitpicking at Federer's record during the slow season?

Yeah, I'm very excited about next year provided both Roger and Rafa stay healthy. Aussie Open 2007 cannot come early enough for me.

Re: Here's a Quiz for You!

Everyone on this board has 6-2 burned into their memory.


Good try.

It doesn't hurt to reminisce during the slow season. Unless you're a Roger fan of course;-)

Re: Here's a Quiz for You!



Now the crazy Fedtards will come out of the woodwork to protect their god.

P.S. Remember Federer is the greatest and is facing tough competition but Nadal is not the greatest clay player as he is facing easy competition.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

I don't know before 2006. This year, he probably celebrated Clement's, Blake's, Moya's, Hewitt's, his own, Berdych's, JCF,'s and Youzhny's wins against Nadal. All eight confirmed that Nadal still has some catching up to do.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Good try! Federer wasn't on the sideline (courtside) ready to cry during those occasions. Plus one would think it's beneath him to celebrate when a lesser player takes out Nadal?;-)

Re: Here's a Quiz for You!

Federer needs somebody to take out Nadal for him.

His ballet tennis will do shit against Rafa.

Heart > ballet talent.

In Reality Rafa=Fed Killa Roger Federer

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.

I answered the first of your questions. The answer to the second is five. Dubai, MC, Rome, RG, Wimbly.

I suspect he celebrated it just a little, but of course not as big as his celebrations after AO, Wimby and USO. Those wins must have mattered a lot more for him.
