Why? Because everybody will go all Ooooh, poor RogieGOAT , that's the only reason he got beaten so often because evil Nadal slowed down the play on purpose?
Everybody who knows something about tennis and is not looking for excuses knows that's not exactly true...
Nope, not because of that. Who takes The "Angel Rogie who singlehandedly tries to save tennis from the evil clutches of Demon Tio Toni, Godfather extraordinaire and puppetmaster to his nephew Rafael" Club serious?
But trying to read and understand what Toni has to say, independently from what the above Club tends to sell as facts, is not an easy thing. Esp. if you depend on translations.
It's just that Toni, IMO, doesn't have a clear way of talking. He tends to get really philosophical and seems to just let us listen in while he ponders out loud. It can get great quotes but it's very often not very clear. Too often, when Toni has given an interview, you see contradictory interpretations in the media and at times, we've seen Rafael Nadal having to correct those interpretations.
