Federer vs Nadal

Hi, everybody. I am a fan for Federer and Nadal both. I think Roger will win the FO this year and this result would actually be better for Nadal's future. This is my opinion. May be I am wrong.

Re: Federer vs Nadal

Hi Duane! Welcome to Roger's forum!! Is it a bit complicated for you to see your two favorites facing each other in an important stage like SF of French Open?

And, I hope you are right about Roger winning and Nadal losing but good for his future...

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

You're right duane. A loss for Nadal wouldn't harm him, it could even become a big help for him by taking down the hype a little bit. Despite how mentally tough you are on the court, getting hyped like Nadal is, will truly effect an 18 (soon 19) old "kid" sooner or later. Beeing tough and mentally strong on the court doesn't mean you're as tough outside the court, to handle it. It's a little bit like capriati years ago (really just a little bit ), though i don't think Nadal will fall into that hole.
Besides this is a great opportunity for Roger to win RG and will take a lot of pressure for him in the future, too.

"This is not about class, colour or races,
let’s get around and see different places,
put a smile on those distant faces,
wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress

Re: Federer vs Nadal

It's nice to find a group of other Roger fans here!

HOPP HOPP Roger ! ALLEZ Roger !

It would be so wonderful if Roger could win the SF and eventually the title. It'd be great for him to join the list of guys who have won all 4 slams.

It will be something to see how Roger manages against the all out pace of Nadal and the way he gets back so many balls. The thing that gets me is that Nadal will just take a flying stab at a ball out wide and still it he gets it back and it's often a winner. That's sick ! Roger will have to be his best in their match. Roger has the weapons to win, and I hope he does. It will be great for tennis if Roger wins. Let's cut down on the Nadal hype mania and realize that Roger is still the greatest. Sure Nadal is a rival, but Roger is not going away !

Roger Forever !

Re: Federer vs Nadal

i like both men as well but hopefully Nadal will have many more times to win RG -- this year has got to be Rogi's best chance. so i want him to win it.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Federer vs Nadal

Roger will not have a better chance than this but even if he lost there is always next year and years after that. Roger will be around for a long time if he doesn't suffer any major injuries. The sooner he wins this thing the better he will be as a player. Roche has to get some sort of coaching legacy off of Roger because if Roger doesn't win RG under him; I think the press will blame Roche for it.

Welcome TC.

Re: Federer vs Nadal

Bebop, Roger is not Ferrer. Roger is all weapons. Nadal will be pushed to his limit for sure.

I feel you there, Pam

We all have to be prepared for a tough match. Many said Nadal can't win RG this year coz he's only 18, and it's his first time playing here etc but so far he showed no sign of nerves and is incredibly focus (you can dislike him, but can not disregard that is admirable from a 18 yo). From their respective interviews, neither feel having any advantage or disadvantage over each other. I find it interesting to note that Nadal who had said a few times before that "if Federer plays his best, he will win" had changed to "it's 50/50 and if I play my best, I have my chance" sth like that, being more focus on himself now, that shows his confidence too, rightfully so with the way he had been winning.

Also majoriy draw their conclusions that if Nadal can come close to beating Rogi in Miami final, he should be the favourite here, but I like to stick to my conclusion that Rogi won the 4th and 5th sets rather easily, so Rogi can adjust to Nadal's game and will find the way to win...yeah I know...I'm slightly bias here, I just want to focus on the positive part

Too many speculation in GM on who will win, and some big talks from respective fans but the fact is that nobody have a clue what will happen. For me, I just want to believe that Rogi CANand WILL WIN this (yeah I learn this from poster of GM, seems like if you underline and type in CAPITAL letters, it might just turn into the fact )
