Unless Nadal can find a magic energy pill, he's stuffed against Federer

Yesterday Rafa was clearly struggling, and now around 24 hours later he's back out there. Federer might have finished his match later, but he's had a much less demanding week.

It's no secret that...

Re: Your opinion on Roddick's approach shots?

What approach shots? He almost looks like he leaps into the net rather than approaches. 'Approach' implies craft and skill.

Everything about Roddick is guileless. Even his serve would ordinarily...

Re: Would Rios beat Muster today?

There's so much sexism on this board...honestly, people have to apologise for even a WTA mention. Bloomin' heck. I think there's often parallels to be drawn between the two tours.

Re: How Long Can Nadal Stay At The Top?

I'm not sure, it depends on his body. In a year's time, we could be looking at a long-term injury and questioning whether he'll ever win a tournament again - you never know with Nadal, and that's the...

Re: Will Roddick retire in 2011?

His year was going great until the grass court season.

He won Miami, which was the biggest title he'd won in the last five years. Then he had a reasonable clay season by his standards.

Re: RANT- no way is nadal ahead of borg, you cannot be serious

I am Nadal's biggest admirer, and I've almost cried tears of joy with him through his successes this year. After being written off last Christmas, his grave stone readied and simpering former rivals...

Re: Maybe Pete just didn't try hard enough

People are forgetting something.

In those days, Wimbledon was played on a much faster surface. If you played great serve and volley tennis you would win Wimbledon, and that's what Sampras...

Re: Federer has higher expectations of Nadal than Nadal has of himself

Again, not true.

People were talking about Federer as the greatest of all time since about 2004!!

In January 2006, Tommy Haas said he was sick of people talking as if Roger was anywhere near...

Re: Federer has higher expectations of Nadal than Nadal has of himself


And as if nobody was talking about Federer as one of the greatest ever before he'd won in Paris.

Not only that, Borg never won the Australian OR the US Opens, and he's without a doubt one...

Re: Peak Sampras vs Peak Federer : On Grass In Best of 7 Matches

Sounds like I'm one of the only people who thinks Sampras would win most of them - even on post-2002 grass!

I just can't see how Federer would have returned that serve if it was firing. He's...

Re: Should Nadal wear sleeveless shirts on court again?


I miss his beautiful hairy armpits. So masculine. There is never so sexy a sight as an attractive man's armpit hair, and Rafa is hot.

Those muscles and the hair blowing around when he...

Re: Tomas Berdych complains about playing at 12pm at noon.

He should grow some body hair and man up a bit.

Stop shaving his pits and waving his legs, then less moaning too.

Re: Nadal could surpass Roger and become GOAT...

I think this is all more than a little premature.

Nadal is 24 and on 8 slam titles. He's been an ever-present among contenders for over 5 years now, and he's won 8 slams. If he wins at this rate...

Re: Which is the best? Nadal 2005, Nadal 2008 or Nadal 2010?

I'm going to be controversial.

I think Nadal is slower around the court than he was in early 2009 and not quite as powerful. He doesn't get the same depth on his shots.

I think the difference...

Is it me, or has Nadal lost muscle bulk?

It might be that he's better covered up now that he's ditched his sleeveless tops. But, to me, since he came back from injury he's just not looking the physical specimen that he did 12 months ago.

Re: ~ Pics of Tomas ~

Noooo...there's nothing there. A little bit around his navel, but none under his arms. He must shave way it wouldn't grow on a guy with that much testosterone in him.

Re: ~ Pics of Tomas ~

I do wish Tomas would STOP shaving his armpits. In every single shirtless picture I've seen of him, he's got a beautiful bod but he shaves his pits, which I always think spoils a man. It somehow...

Nadal plays one of the greatest epics of his career to subdue Djokovic in a gruelling four hour contest, with his leg strapped,...

Re: Perspective on the "Federer decline"

You missed my point.

Nadal is the primary player who is undermining Federer's confidence. He somehow gets under Federer's skin and makes him doubt his ability to remain in a rally, or to keep the...

Federer in Denial that there's a Problem

I've followed women's tennis a lot in years gone by, and there's a resonance of Graf-Seles about the Nadal-Federer rivalry.

In 1990, up until losing to Seles in Berlin, Graf was on a 66-match...

Re: Sunday OOP + Scores

Their matches remind me a little of Graf and Sanchez-Vicario's in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

If Graf was at her best, people said that she would always beat Aranxta on any surface. But on...
