Why is it so pathetic? Nadal is an excellent player in singles, surely he can translate some of his singles game to doubles. He also won a title in doubles this year.
You're all shocked.
It's pathetic as Raf is supposed to have just come back from a major injury, so severe to even force him not to defend his Wimbledon Title, playing along with a 41-year old.
If this isn't a pathetic result from Djoko + Vemic, I'd really like to hear from you what you think IS.
I "think" Borg was the only guy McEnroe played that he did not misbehave. He may have in some of the earlier matches, can't remember for sure. But later in the rivalry, after he gained immense respect for Borg he did not erupt with Borg across the net.
True, I remember having had the same impression, even if it's a long lost memory from over 30 years ago.
