What Rafa Roger Rivalry?

When ESPN analysts desert Federer and pick Murray or Nadal for their picks, you know Federer's era is over :devil: Except, Murray and Nadal meet in the semis.

So why does ESPN hate Federer this much? They have always picked against him. At least in the past 3 years. Last year, Bonnie Ford picked him for early exit :confused: I do think Murray may win it though. Easy draw

That Cliff Drysdale guy is up federer's a$$. He will pick him.


The people that picked Murray, seemed to have watched Toronto.

(Must be some new form of grammar, maybe I'll grasp the meaning if I sleep over it).

I am not sure why you seem so confused. this is not your kindergarten boy. Unless you are claiming that ESPN is not a relevant news site, I suggest you find some other way to waste your time :)

Doesn't mean much, tennis.com and Sports Illustrated have mostly gone with Federer. Maybe ESPN are under contract to keep their picks 'interesting' :p

Cliff is going with Andy Roddick. He's had a man crush on Roddick for years.

I don't care if they go with Federer or not. I am just wondering why is it that Bonnie Ford and Mary Joe Fernandez (who's husband works for Federer or used to) keep picking against Fed every time. And they pick Nadal when Murray is clearly going to beat Nadal's butt if he reaches the semis :)

Yes. Why is that? haha. Brad Gilbert is hard on Nadal. Darren Cahill is in love with Djokovic. Patrick McEnroe is confused. Bonnie Ford is anti-Federer. Mary Joe Fernandez has a crush on Nadal and doesn't know it. And Pam Shriver is still mad at Blake. :devil:

I think it is safe to say Patrick has always been a Federer fan :0

:lol:Right. You're bitching about about ESPN not going with Roger because you don't care if they don't go with Roger. Uh-huh. Is your world coming to an end because these minority of people don't think Roger is "THE" favorite?:rolleyes:

In both these posts lay your true motives. Which is create yet another "Lets bash Rafa" thread. I don't get Nadal haters. If you all are so certain he is not a contender, why waste your time talking, bitching, and whining about him? I mean, most of you respond or reply more to post that are about him than one about your favorite player.

I choose this color because it matches Rafa's USO gear. The only thing I'm looking forward to, to be honest.

Oh, and since when has Killer been in love with Nole? Because I would love if that were true.

great post.

now that is calling it like it is.

but then we know what to expect from clueless rodents like cyrusqueen. the motives are always so simple:

create endless fed worshipping and fed nuthugging threads and also at the same time have the opportunity to bash some of the top players of the sport and their fans.

smart fedrereeeeesians do not engage in such practices. they laugh at cyrusqueen.

fed`s records will stand forever and his achievements speaker far louder than any words.

**on the avergae, its only the most incompetent and the most immature who use these forums to trash some of the top players. i guess they are too stupid to just enjoy the very best the sport has to offer.

I see no indication of the OP bashing on Rafa at all, so I have no reason to believe what the bigger Rafa fans are talking about...

As for ESPN, good for them for having diversity in their picks. I already know that Murray, Nadal and Federer are the top picks... it's been shoved down my ear for this past month. I don't hate them (though Murray tends to get annoying... and that's saying a lot considering I'm a Roddick fan), but it gets depressing when it's always the same picks as it was last year except for Nadal.

But hey, why /not/ add the other Andy, or even Fish, or the world #3 Nole and Soderling and whatnot? They've been going kind of deep in tournaments so I see no reason why not to factor other people in.

Except Brands. Never mention Brands.

Maybe they realized that Roddick
was on tour all along, to make his pimp Federer look the greatest. Last but not least, he was delighted to pay for a life with wealthy big-breasted bimbos:shrug:
Pat McEnroe gets along with the twins...I mean twin daughters he has (he compares his twins to Federer twins).

Sharapova is an elegant and distinguished woman. my favorite quote from her was during French Open 2008 during the match against Safina. naturally our shitty crowd chose to cheer up for the worst player-> Safina, as usual. So, after winning a point, Masha gets angry and defiantly adressing the public says:

UP YOUR F*CKING ASS!!!

She became de-facto my favorite player :)

Oh, you're one of those, aren't you? You're just going hardcore Federer everything; damn objectivity.

Murray was ill...

In AO '09, he was. Certinfy, I've only glanced at your avie. No joke, I thought that was a chick.:lol: When I read your sig and location, then looked harder at your av, I realized who it was. :lol: So, how young are you?
