Nico :sad: But what can you expect when playing Federer :rolleyes: I know a lot of posters complain about their favorite players and the draws they get, but I must say I would put Nico's draws up against any other player as being just plain awful all the time :ras:

Nico isn't good on carpet - though yes, he's better on carpet than on grass. ;) :lol:

And he just has to get a good draw for next week - has to - the tennis gods are being soooooooooooooooooooo unfair to him this year. :mad:

When he will have won FO, he will be the best tennis player of all time.

Better luck in Lyon! :p

When he will have won FO, he will be the best tennis player of all time.

Agreed. :yeah:

I still think Borg was the best ever. But that's just my humble opinion. ;)

And I think Borg had far more competition. Half the people who are in the top ten now shouldn't be there, and Rafa is his only competition - not because Roger is unbeatable but because half the time these guys don't believe they can beat him even when he doesn't play well..

NicoFan has spoken and I totally agree with her :worship: ... Borg was better so much better and Fed is that good just because the rest of the top ten (except for Rafa) let him be in that place :o

Nico with a better draw can get more than 2 wins in Lyon, I'm sure about that :yeah:

ChinoRios4Ever
10-17-2006, 10:23 PM
i never saw borg playing, but i know that he was fantastic
but i think King Fed WILL be the best tennis player of all time

for me the best player i saw is PETE SAMPRAS :worship: :worship:

okay No1Rios with all your respect I'm about to kill King Fed :mad: .... he said that it's always nice to beat an olympic champion :fiery: ... that's it... i"m going to kill him!!!!!! :mad: :p

from cooperativa.cl .... please translation NicoFan ;)

Federer destacó a Massú: "Me gusta su espíritu, disfruto jugando contra él"

El número uno del mundo brindó elogios a la entrega del viñamarino en el partido disputado este martes en Madrid. "Siempre es agradable vencer a un campeón olímpico", afirmó.

El suizo Roger Federer, número uno del mundo, destacó la entrega del chileno Nicolás Massú (45º), tras vencerlo por 6-3 y 6-2 en la segunda ronda del Masters Series de Madrid.

"Me gusta su espíritu, siempre luchando en cada punto, y concentrado. Disfruto jugando contra él", aseguró.

"Siempre es agradable vencer a un campeón olímpico. Disfruto jugando contra él cada vez. En Roland Garros fue especial, una gran batalla. En Indian Wells y aquí fue más fácil", agregó el helvético respecto de su victoria sobre el viñamarino.

Yep Borg and Sampras are still the best...in my opinion. But Federer has a chance to climb in this area! ;)

Well now Kid I didn't say that. Roger is an excellent player - one of the best - I just don't think he is The Best ever. And I rarely see him seriously challenged except for Rafa - part of that is that he's great, but part is because the players who face him don't step up to the plate and try to hit one out of the park. I think he'd still be a dominant player in another era, but he wouldn't be as dominant.

I wrote to you about him on the MSN site. I have nothing but respect for Roger. Though I wish Nico didn't keep drawing him. ;) :lol:

Greg Norman - the golfer - was talking about how golf's ratings have gone down. He thinks its because there is no one to take on Tiger. He wishes there was someone in golf who like Rafa with Roger dares to take the top guy on. Personally, I wish that more guys other than Rafa would try to take on Roger.

No1Rios - Pete was great, but he's another one that in a different era wouldn't be as dominant. He came right when the game was changing, and he took full advantage of the power to have such an awesome serve. But guys have learned how to return big serves now - he wouldn't be able to accomplish today what he did then.

Here's the translation:

Nice words by Roger about Nico. :yeah:

Federer emphasized to Massú: "I like his spirit, I enjoy playing against him"

The number one of the world offered compliments to the delivery of the viñamarino in the match disputed this Tuesday in Madrid. "Always it is pleasant to conquer to an Olympic champion", affirmed.

The Swiss Roger Federer, number one of the world, emphasized the delivery of the Chilean Nicolas Massú (45º), after conquering it for 6-3 and 6-2 in the second round of the Masters Series of Madrid.

"I like his spirit, always fighting in each point, and concentrated. I enjoy playing against him", assured.

"Always it is pleasant to conquer to an Olympic champion. I enjoy playing against him each time. In Roland Garros was special, a great battle. In Indian Wells and here was easier", added the Swiss one regarding its victory on the viñamarino.

You have a big imagination, Roger didn't say nothing wrong (just because you don't like him, isn't? :lol: )

yeah right, I can imagine his face while he was saying that :ras:

Well, I have to agree with Nicofan on this Kid-I certainly do get tired of my favorites loosing to Roger but that doesn't make him a bad person. He meant those comments about Nico as a compliment not a diss. :)

kidnicky
10-18-2006, 04:09 AM
the time will give me the reason :lol: ... yes Fergie it's not that I don't like him ... I'm getting a little tired of the guy who loves the Tea :rolls:

and since I'm always the one to think the opposite don't worry, I'm getting used to swim against the flow :haha:
