Dont get me wrong. I love both of them.
I am just bored of them.

and Yes , you can love something and yet be bored with it.

When do you think we will have a real shake-up at the top, finally?

Rafa is 24 and is looking very strong
Roger is still playing well enough to compete in all 4 Slams

I don't think there will be a replacement for about 4 more years or so, till both decide to retire :lol:

Del Potro will be the man to shake things up his game is suited for all surfaces and the last time he play Rafal and Fed he beat both of them Rafal easily and Roger who should have won last year but I honestly think he choked when he saw the finish line.

Their matches stink? What kind of tennis have you been seeing these past years? :rolleyes:
Their finals in Wimbledon and AO are remembered like some of the best ever.
I'm not a fan of Fedal by any stretch of imagination, I'm completely bored with them, but to say that their matches stink is hilarious. The Fedal rivalry is very popular and it will probably be the most remembered rivalry in the game.
But I agree that it's becoming so boring to watch these two players get to the finals and win time and time again. I'd like to see either Djokovic or Murray, or even Soderling and DP, stepping up to the plate. I think it's just a question of one or two years, no more.

I don't spew hate or anything. But I always find it refreshing to see a different player face off. That's why I watched the Del Potro/Federer match last year to the end and enjoyed it very much.

People tell me there's more tricks to Nadal and Federer. I'm not looking for fancy shots anymore. I'm looking for competitive spirit that I honestly don't see in Fedal anymore.

If you have 1 excellent match, 2 good ones which total 3 out of 21. If you think that's a good ratio of quality matches between great players, then you just believe in media mythology cause they need something to write about without any basic analysis.

You don't even have a clue to mention their best ever match.

Unlike you tennis didn't start in 2005.

*Raises hand* Too much dominance inevitably becomes a snoozefest and yes their matches stink for the most part. Aweful matchup, bringing the worst in both. Federer is far worse than normal, can't seem to do anything right, Nadal is even more repetitious than normal. I found even Sampras-like dominance on the boring side, but at least there was enough guys with both the skill and big match experience to make it competitive and snatch a win occassionaly.

IF Nadal reaches the USO final he is losing to Fed. Nadal is due for a loss in a slam final. He has won 5 slam finals in a row and let's face he is not Federer who was able to win 7 slam finals in a row between 2003 and 2006, only losing his first slam final at FO 2006. Rafa is not as good.:wavey:

I'm not bored of either Fed or Nadal. They are both amazing players. I will never be tired of Fed's effortless play, his fluid movement and his killer forehands...and what can you say about Nadal? His will to win is immense, his physical and mental stamina is unmatched. Anyone who's ever thought "it can't be done..." should watch Nadal. There is no "can't" in his vocabulary. I don't know how can anyone be bored of watching these two when they are at their best. Once they're both gone we will realise how fortunate we were to have these two in the same era (or in any era for that matter). If both Fed and Nadal were to retire tomorrow, what would mens tennis be like? Think about that. There are a few very good players out there but Fed and Nadal are tennis and have been for quite a while now.

What I am bored of is this notion of dream Nadal-Fed final. Let's face it there is no such thing as Fedal rivalry. For it to be rivalry both players have to win sometimes. At the moment their H2H is 14-7 in Nadal's favour. That's not rivalry.

US Open yet...after that perhaps it'll be more boring...

09-09-2010, 03:57 PM

In slams no it isn't, but that wasn't my point. I'm talking about how everyone always talks about dream Fed-Nadal finals/their rivalry. Their matches are more often than not pretty one sided.

But as far as slams go...16-8 may look big difference right now but you fail to mention that Nadal is 24 while Fed is 29! If Nadal plays until 29-30 and wins 2gs per year (very doable for him FO and AO/Wimbledon) he'll have 18 slams!

He wins FO pretty much every year. And now that Fed's lost his hold on Wimbledon Nadal will win 70-80% of the time in next 2-3 years. He also has a realistic shot at AO...so what is so unrealistic about Nadal winning 2gs per year for next 5 years?

Nadal will be the heavy favourite only in Paris, never at Wimbledon or at oz, too many dangerous guys for Nadal there, so that is unlikely.

As for Del Potro. He sounds like the Djokivic and Murray of yesteryear, when almost everyone was tlaking about how they were going to be challenging Fedal for majors and keeping them from monopolizing the slams and...

It didn't happen. Until Del Potro gets his hand on another piece of hardware and starts making Fedal really feel their mortality, he's just the latest giant killer.

I completely agree about this. Clay and grass are obviously his most favorite surfaces, and also the surfaces he plays his best.

Not many can compete with him on clay or grass, Federer is the only one to come close to Nadal on clay, and Federer is perhaps a tiny bit better, or perhaps equal, as good as Nadal on grass. The fact that Nadal played so well in Wimbledon says something, Rafa has won the tournament TWICE. How is that not being the favorite? Or at least being up there with the biggest contenders for the title..

Simple reasons why Fedal can NEVER be boring :

1. Two best players on tour
2. Contrast of styles : all-court vs backcourt, genius vs ultimate competitor
3. Wealth of experience = no chokes a la Murray/Berdych.
4. Great chance of history being made. Right now, every match they play writes some interesting bit of history.

I don't have the patience to enumerate the other countless reasons.

Sophocles
09-09-2010, 04:54 PM
The rivalry, although it rarely produced first-class tennis, was compelling until Fed's decline began in earnest in 2008. Could Fed beat Nadal on clay? Could Nadal beat Fed outside clay when it counted? Would Nadal's match-up advantage over Fed be enough to get him to Number 1 or would Fed continue to dominate the rest of the field enough to hold on? Since then their matches have been predictable & the rivalry has been one-sided, & the absence of new challengers has meant a healthy Nadal is a lock for No. 1. That would be fine if Nadal were a gloriously fluid ball-striker a la Federer, but he's not, & he needs to be challenged - & beaten at least sometimes - for the game to be interesting. It is an indictment of the rest of the field that the main responsibility for challenging Nadal continues to rest on the shoulders of a 29-year-old match-up-fucked former Number One.

Don't get me wrong. I consider Federer to be one of the 4 or 5 most talented players in the history of the sport & I shall always enjoy watching him play. Although I don't like his game or on-court demeanour, I respect Nadal and enjoy watching him when an in-form attacking player makes him fight. But it is time for somebody new to get seriously in the mix at the top.

well.. for one, we haven't seen them play each other at the uso.. so i would think the potential for such a match-up this week would have the tennis world ready to jump for joy.. that's partly why i don't quite get how anyone could be 'bored' with their rivalry when such a tantalizing prospect could potentially take place in 3 days.. matter of fact, if there ever was a time to revive interest in the fedal rivalry, it would be now..

Del Potro immediately comes to mind as the guy who was supposed to do to Nadal what Rafa did to Federer. A young upstart who while not as consistent in slams yet, would get the better of the older player more times than nought b/c of match up advantages.

He is really sorely missed right now, and I fear that it will take awhile before he gets his form back.

I'm bored of the majority of top players. And the US Open has mostly been dull for me and I'm ready for it to end. So I guess my answer is yes.

Challengers are where it's really at.

Not bored at this point persay. Whens the last time they even played each other at a slam AO of last year? thats quite a while. Too bad they were 5 years apart and their primes didn't coincide with each other

I am a bit bored actually.

I wish it was more like the WTA where the #1 position was a revolving door. Just kidding. :lol:

Seriously though, it's not even a rivalry when one person's winning all the matches. Hasn't Nadal won like 6 of the past 7 or something like that?

I would like some new blood challenging for the top, and not just playing second fiddle, like all those not ranked 1 or 2 right now.

Del Potro immediately comes to mind as the guy who was supposed to do to Nadal what Rafa did to Federer. A young upstart who while not as consistent in slams yet, would get the better of the older player more times than nought b/c of match up advantages.

He is really sorely missed right now, and I fear that it will take awhile before he gets his form back.

Not true at all. Nadal owns Del Potro if you remove 2009. And guess what happened in 2009? Everything went wrong for Nadal, not just the matches he played against Del Potro. Even Federer beat Nadal on clay in 2009!

I΄m tired of Nadal, he΄s game is so boring to watch, always the same stupid heavy top spin shots, no variation, nothing, no net skills, no drop shots, just running like a psycho and retrieving, retrieving... Even murray is better to see

On the other hand, Federer is just the opposite, he just do everything better than Nadal, too bad he always have a mental block against him.... we΄re lucky to live in the same era of the best tennis player of all time!

Pre-2009 was pre-peak Del Potro, idiot.

See another fedal final?

Honestly, if you are not a nadal fan, does anyone truly want to watch this match-up? There is no suspense to it, and the result is NID..

i love this rivalry, i love all the haters of rafa and fedtards saying that because federer plays a stylish type of tennis that he is automatically superior to rafa, but rafa destroys federer every single time on every surface.

everyone was saying that nadal has no chance against federer, but its federer that stands no chance against rafa.

first it was that rafa was only a clay court specialist that denied federer the FO.
then its was rafa can never win wimbledon.
then it was rafa has never won a hardcourt slam.
then its rafa has never won the USO.
then it was rafa will break down and will never equal borg's FO record.

now its rafa will never get close to federer's slam record.

go rafa, prove these disgusting haters wrong.

I know Rafa fans are hurt after his loss at Wimbledon. But am I the only one who finds Fedal matches as being overrated. They played a couple of good matches but that's all. With Novak vs. Nadal, there seems to be a lot more drama even though only one person wins all the time lately.

Yes.

Hate both players and their matches against one another are usually awful choking mugfests which people hype up just because of a few good matches they've played. If we had a Fedal final today I doubt I would have watched it.

This was the shittest match between the two of them in quite a while. The majority of their matches are pretty dramatic, but this was just plain awful (mainly thanks to Nadal's shocking performance).

Novak won, didn't he? I told you Rafatards that Novak was gonna win. I even predicted a straight set match. I knew it was not going to be close. Novak should not have given him that set. You can make fun of me but I have been consistently right with my predictions (except at RG).

I recommend you taking a volume. You being angry with me because Rafa got destroyed and exposed does not change anything
