I know you should never let trolls wind you up but once in a while they catch you with your guard down and nail you with a sucker punch.

My god. Shaking my head so hard I might dislocate my fucking neck.

indeed, there is some spellbinding stuff here... though, i believe i have pretty much identified their pain, and thus their motives, with my previous post...

but these things always balance out...

fast forward to 2011, and the mental imbalance had been redressed... djokovic's resolve had not been broken by nadal, only strengthened... djokovic had accepted what he must do to match his foe nadal... he discarded the wta-like need for drama, the vain need to be loved and the penchant for retirements... and what unfolded was the biggest match up issue since federer vs nadal... what is ironic was that without nadal, the djokovic of 2011 could not have happened...

what we have today is the match up issue that tennis observers expected to unfold between nadal and djokovic... nadal's default two shot finishing combo vs federer that has collected innumerable points (of high and heavy forehand to the ad court + finishing strike to the deuce court or in behind) did not work against djokovic... in fact, as seen in the match up, djokovic likes striking it up there at chin level... similarly, murray's inability to strike a confident forehand down the line, allows nadal to camp in his favoured position way right of centre and take control of the rallies murray often lets him...

but with djokovic, nadal has nowhere to retreat to... for nadal, there is nowhere to run... nowhere to make the rally neutral... nowhere on the court he can find some breathing space with some 50/50 ball... djokovic is all over him like a very severe case of genital warts - and all over him all of the time... just like an ageing nalbandian displayed in indian wells, djokovic's ability to strike down the line and cross court with authority from both shoulder height and from a low contact height means that nadal's dominant rally position is now more centred - nadal can see that djokovic can strike easily at the open ad court should he offer the space, and djokovic obliges just to let him know... what is the result of nadal's more centred rally position: yes, that's right... nadal's weaker backhand is exposed...

the match-up of djokovic, nalbandian and davydenko vs nadal is perhaps the most obvious match up issue we have on hardcourts today... less so on clay as nadal has more retrieval and recovery time, but djokovic showed us in 2011 that the match up does extend to clay also...

players adept at cross court and down the line shotmaking at any contact height are nadal's match up issue... unfortunately for nadal he does not possess the skills to overcome this match up issue... he has tried slicing down the line to djokovic to change the rally speed and work djokovic's strange inability to do anything substantial with off pace balls, but the nadal slice is largely inferior to those that have gained reward against djokovic with it, it is better left as something defensive...

simply put, nadal has nowhere to run vs djokovic... gone are the days where the match up was based in the mental realm... as i said, that imbalance has been redressed....

we are witnessing the match up issue of this age... one that will cause a negative H2H match up record where once it was mightily positive... the technical limitations that nadal's mental fortitude hid vs supreme ball strikers is negated...
This is too sensible for MTF. Thanks mate.

Where is the one person controlling the accounts of Failerko, Tard da Fail, Clay Fail and FailFK? Posts one time using his quad accounts and leaves.
LMAO what?

By the way just for the record (in case there exists a dope smoking MTF mod that shoots first and asks questions later) I'm not a quad account of not a single other account whatsoever, neither of Start Da Game nor of ClayDeath nor of whoever the fuck this lunatic nutsack calling himself HKz is referring to as "failFK".

Does it now show that there was nothing called as Bad match Up for federer against Nadal. It was the same old SLOW COURT same Old Nadal and his game Plan of hitting Looping Balls to federer's Backhand. And Gues what? It somehow didnt work.


What does it show then?

All the while when Federer lost to nadal he purely had a Mental Block which came from losing the previous Match Badly. He said in his quotes also after his victory against Nadal





This shows that he clearly was carrying Baggage from his previous matches against Nadal and there was little Truth in the so Called Match Up.

I wanna go ahead and say that. Federer clearly a very talented player,all the while depending on his talent alone was winning over the rest of the Tour. but when faced Nadal he clearly got rattled and never really recovered after that. He himself said that baggage was preventing him from playing at his best and thereby laying to rest the Myth called as

Bad Match Up.

But then you could say that Federer's accurate and penetrating forehand is designed to be difficult to get to. His low slice is designed to be hard to attack. His serve is deigned to be diffiult to return.

In short, all players are trying to be a bad match up for everyone. Therefore overall there is no such thing as a bad match up. There are only players who are better than you.

Djoker has beaten Nadal recently in the past year, because he has been the better player on those days
