Rafael Nadal, the only player in the top 8 who is in form and 100% fit

We're experiencing dark times in the noble sport of tennis, but luckily we have one man to keep it on life support for the moment.

I don't even like him, but he is the biggest asset to the sport we have. Thank you, Rafael!

He's known as Nadull around here for a reason.

can't tell if you're serious OP but I agree with Federer's back problems, Murray's constant self degrading attitude on court, and Djokovic's pretending of injuries- it's up to Nadal to keep the integrity of the sport

Djokovic: out of form, might be injured
Murray: out of form
Federer: out of form, might be injured
Ferrer: out of form
Del Potro: not able to perform on a professional level due to his fitness
Berdych: injured
Tsonga: out of form

Nadal, who has just returned from serious injury, is sadly enough the only one we can depend on.

Ferrer out of form because he was 1 point away from winning his biggest title of his career?
Murray out of form because he won Miami?

Anyway, with Clay coming up it doesn't matter who's in form and who isn't, we all know his winning the titles

Ferrer was good that match. And how is Berdych injured exactly? He is definitely in form.

Berdych pulled out of the Davis Cup due to a shoulder injury.

Djokovic: injured
Murray: in form, not injured
Federer: declining, dealing with back pain
Ferrer: same as always, but not a real top 8 player
Del Potro: in form, but dealing with constant niggly injuries
Berdych: fatigued, but generally playing well
Tsonga: inconsistent/hot and cold

That is a joke, right? Every time Bashtro loses, his fans automatically claim he was injured/tired. It's getting old :o

Sure, the guy's slicing all his backhands for absolutely no reason at all. He also lies in every interview when he answers "yes" to reporters asking whether there's pain. Makes all the sense in the world.

I'm glad that's what you attribute it to. I've moderated a 25,000-member forum for some years now, and I'd be embarrassed to let people see the things I still say to the most stubborn/antagonistic members... I've never even banned anyone for more than a day. Too much faith in humanity. :o

GOAT won't lose another match for the rest of the year. He was tanking against Zeballos. That is the only valid explanation I can offer for that loss.

To give lesser opponents a chance at some glory. Nadal is generous like that. He knows a clown like Zeballos wont achieve anything in his career so he felt sorry for the guy and gifted him a title :shrug: But when he met opponents he didn't care for like Fatbandian, Shitro and Vulture, he dutifully crushed them :shrug:

Why, were there people you wish weren't permanently banned? For us it's called a blacklist, blocks that IP address from ever joining again. My friend uses it left and right, and gets death threats in her inbox. :rolleyes:

Aw thanks. I'd clarify though--I have some degree of respect for Ferrer-like players, it's just that I would have achieved more in my own life if the system worked against them.

Fedull's not out of form. He just has no game or plan.

Djoker's emotionally out of it.

Nadal's surprisingly fitter.

Berdych just beats Fedull.
A little retarded & backwards cuz you're supposed to beat the top player and everyone beneath Fedull too.

Murray's the dirty helper for Fedull if Djoker plays badly.
Murray is doing ok. Usually, he has no game plan, like the 30 year old guys, but he's more talented than them, so he doesn't rely on San Jose, Memphis, Halle or Queen's to stay in the top 6.

Nadal is 100% most of the time. Probably the least injury prone of the top players. When he says he's injured it's just an excuse or a reason to run away after an embarrassing loss.

least injury prone when gone for 7 months and missing two slams in a row..... any other top player who has had that happen in their career of the top 5?... hmmm. Didn't think so

He did that after losing to Soderling too. He is just scared it will happen again so he gets an 'injury'. I don't believe a damn word that comes out of his mouth anymore. He has told one too many lies.
