But if they don't do sqaut when Roddick calls them a "f*cking asshole" I guess I shouldn't be suprised they let Nadal abuse the time limit between points.
I also wish the umpires would do more about the time rule. Heck, Nadal and Djerk were in the midst of another competition on Saturday.....

"I can take longer between points," mused Nadal.
Djerk replied, "You can pinch your arse but my bouncing balls will kill more time between points."
"Oh the Pression to be no. 1 at killing time between points. I will try my best, no?" answered the no. 1 player in the world.


Personally, I don't find Andy's liberal use of offensive words to be as irritating as the breaking of the time rule In fact, it's sometimes amusing to watch.......adds some zest to some otherwise boring matches Then again, I like Andy so maybe I'm biased

Supposedly Nadal said this after the final:

"There are no positives, there is little to analyze," said Nadal, who had won his previous 33 clay-court matches. "He broke and broke and I went home."

I saw all of the action and the coin toss, but I actually thought nothing of the waiting. If Roger did this to give Nadal a taste of his own medicine~~good on him!!Time to stop being such a nice guy and play *ugly* if he has to. (IMO)(Just not too ugly)

I know I have been waiting for Roger to do this for a while now, it seems to me Fed always plays the calm collected good guy on court, never celebrates too much and def. no stare downs. Some of his opponents on the other hand

Re: Qué Será, Será - Buena suerte a Madrid Roger

2009 RG for the career slam and matching the record...2009 W to surpass Pete, coming full circle (1st slam, 15th slam).....Is Nadal, by any chance, an astrologer? You can ask him whether it's all written in the stars.

Re: Qué Será, Será - Buena suerte a Madrid Roger

I was today at the exhibition mary Cohr, never saw Roger this close, on clay, it's SO beautiful, the land was perfect, great weather, and Stan was georgous too watch also. Two players with single backhands, and then after it was nadal and Clement, some people in the stand were doing 'et hop' every time Nadal was fixing his pants.
It was relaxed, joyous, just perfect, we felt we had Roger all for ourselves.

His serve was very good

Roddick about Federer:
"It’s easy to be a winner when you never lose"
