Even though Federer is hailed as the greatest player ever, Nadal has the #1 ranking right now.

Who do you support?

Nadal for sure, I love watching the guy play tennis, so much self-determination, fights for every point like his life depends on it, and the crazy spin he puts on the ball, so much dip. but most importantly, he has the iron heart of a champion, VAMOS!!!

I think Federer is one of the greatest players tennis has seen, I like watching his game, but that is about it.

I like Rafa's 'heart' if you know what I mean, no angle is to difficult no point is irrelevant.

but there's something about roger's movement (he looks like he's gliding not running), the finess in his stroke, he's slick, he's deceptively fast and eerily effortless and particulary his improvisation at what is seemingly unreturnable shots that just leave me:eek:

Depends on the situation. I rooted for Roger over Rafa at AO 2009 and I rooted for Rafa over Roger at Wimbledon 2008. They both are two of my favorite players so I'm rarely upset if one beats the other. They are both amazing champions who deserve total respect for their achievements.

Roger is my favourite player so of course I root for him, but that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate Rafa's achievements or have to write negative things about him.

Both of these two players have done a lot for tennis in the last years, whether you like just one of them, both or neither.

Maybe people will be able to respect the players once they have retired and remember that the guys weren't that bad ;)

Federer may be a little pompous and arrogant, but at least he's not a cheater like Nadull.
OOOoooh scary powerful talent, let's hope Nadal never has to see it...
For Nadull's sake, I hope so.

He deserves the respect of everyone on the planet for his achievements.
Federer dreams about those Nadal's abilities when they play against each other.
Nadull's abilities? The ability to dent the roof with his moonballs? Nah.

I will still cheer for him even if he beats Murray. He is the GOAT, no shame in losing to the GOAT.
