Re: Federer Concerned for Injured Nadal

I think I used 'calling out', didn't say 'condemning'. My original post was also framed in questions. Calling out means to question, to challenge some people's line of thought. I'm not sure that...

Re: Federer Concerned for Injured Nadal

Have they publicly said anything remotely similar to what Federer said? No, as far as I can see from any news source. Yet some of their fans indict Federer for doing exactly that- for getting...

Re: Federer Concerned for Injured Nadal

So showing concern is phony? And we have to disparage Federer for doing this and we have to question his motives?
Whereas the vast majority of the rest of the tennis community is a no-show in the...

Re: WWW US Open 2012: The City That Never Sleeps Discussion

No, I suppose not. As regards Nadal, I'm not writing his career off or anything, I was simply thinking along the lines that he might not be in slam-worthy form in time for USO. I mean he's not even...

Re: WWW US Open 2012: The City That Never Sleeps Discussion

Agreed. But we might be underrating Murray (or maybe I'm overrating him:). But his most recent form saw him defeat Djokovic and Federer. Nadal may be rusty and Murray might actually dismiss Nadal...

Re: WWW US Open 2012: The City That Never Sleeps Discussion

It's nice to take a breather here from the flame wars in the other threads, lol.
Anyway, I think this is going to be the most interesting and wide open USO in a long while. It's pretty much up for...

Re: Olympics point distribution. McEnroe thinks they should be the same as Slams

Keep it as is, imo. More points and you risk inflating the rankings based on something that is too anomalous in terms of timing, relative situation (with other pro tourneys) and preparation. Less...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

You seem like one of the better Rafa fans around here. Fair-minded, objective, intelligent and not suffering from Tourette syndrome. Wish there were more like you. Good post. :yeah:

Re: Was Federer's loss bigger loss for Olympic tennis event? Please, be serious

This part especially. We're social creatures by nature (evolutionary biology). If you don't profess to love your fellow primates, you must be some kind of abomination. The Olympics have become...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

I was addressing the premise in what Jagermeister had written to me in a post, to quote: "It's much safer to assume that somebody as decorated as Federer would be only satisfied with gold than him...

Re: Olympics are very close to slams importance wise!

I don't like to overrate or underrate the Olympics, especially so in tennis. Olympics will always be about what an athlete does for his country. The Olympics are also a highlight for sports that...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

But notice I didn't write subconsciously happy with silver. I wrote 'subconsciously satisfied that he is AT LEAST assured a silver' implying that his fire, his passion, may have dipped after that. ...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

I love logic. Logic is about the structural consistency between premises and conclusions. But that is not to be confused with 'truth'. For example, many times in analytic philosophy you'll see...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

Fair enough! Agree to disagree. :) I think a person can be on a mission and, still, subconsciously their level can drop (from relief, from mental & physical exhaustion) if they've already clinched a...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

Things in life aren't always black and white. I could want a Ferrari very, very much. But if I work very hard and then get a Porsche before I could ever get the Ferrari, my original hunger for the...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

I'm not trying to convince you. We're not kids in junior high, we're adults. I hope. I'm just giving you my opinion, my read on the match and having an interesting conversation. Nobody has to win...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

Murray definitely has a long way to go before we can pronounce him an all-time great. Great job today but he has to do this at the slams. Tennis is not about one or two h2hs but about the totality of...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

I don't think that he flat-out 'didn't care', things are rarely that black-and-white in life, but notice his reaction after the Delpo match versus his reaction after the Djokovic match in Wimby. It...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

What do you mean? Did someone delete your posts?
I personally have no problem with someone posting those two opinions ^ although I might argue against certain premises inherent in there. :)

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

That's exactly what I thought too. This is not to say that Murray did not fully deserve his gold or that he didn't thoroughly outplay and outhustle Roger. He did- on all these counts. But Roger...

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

Yes, could be that Murray always felt intimidated by Federer so he has to measure his praise for him. Djokovic and Murray have always been troubles by Federer so one way to exorcise the demon is to...

Re: Where does Federer go from here?

How is he arrogant? By being honest? And he was gracious to Andy Murray and gave him props.
He said that maybe he felt a little emotionally drained after that semi (maybe physically too) which is...
