28th of March of 2004 was the day when Nadal and Federer played their first match. Nadal was 17 years old and won 6-3 and 6-3 in 69 minutes. Since then they have bring us beautiful matches... and a lot of fights between Nadal and Federer fans :lol: (here in MTF too :lol:) My admiration to this two great tennis players. Respect.

The year Olderer's face started to mutate and change its shape into worse.

Getting old is tough, i hope mine doesnt mutate that dramatically.

Sorry, did I just see 'beautiful tennis' used to describe Fedal matches?

Bet Federeeesians still weep every day thinking about how long it has been and how much more they can take.

Any one got the link for the match thread of their first match? If there was one?

Back when Nadal hit flat on the forehand and playing a style I actually enjoy. Only other time Rafa has hit FHs like that is in exhibitions.

Forgot how decidedly feminine they both looked back then. Good stuff.

Nice thread. It's been that long already has it, well they've certainly provided us with some incredible tennis moments and imbued in this chapter of tennis an awe inspiring legacy of achievement and greatness. Thanks also for the images and the video link.

Federer and Nadal, 10 ans d'affrontement / Federer and Nadal, 10 years rivalry
and also have a look at the gallery

Three years? Not too far off. Turned out to be 4˝.

The use of 'Fedal' makes people sound like teenage girls. But given all the bitchiness on this forum, it would explain a lot. The only question remains... do they see Federer & Nadal as a cute homoerotic pairing? I have to admit, that video where they couldn't stop giggling was suspicious. There was a glint in Roger's eye that you don't usually see when he's with Mirka. The excitement of forbidden love.

So this happened in Miami? There has to be some kind of mistake... I thought Miami was the only real HC tournament left in the ATP. :confused:

Nadal was 17 years old and won 6-3 and 6-3 in 69 minutes.Basically says everything about their 'rivalry' aka one sided trashing.

So that anti-tennis damp swamp is where all the H2H mess started.

No wonder.

Federer was suffering from food poison.

Most obviously. There is a Fedal thread in the off topic section and I think the mods would do well to merge this thread there.

Still a nice thread, anyhows. Thanks OP. :)

Federer was suffering from food poison.
It was reported that he considered withdrawing from Miami 2004 only a couple of days before, but he didn't so.... "when you appear on court, you're ready to play!". ;)
