No Nadal doesnt enjoy the attention, not a bit at all, nooooo

8 months of FB updates every day and banging on about some fish he caught the day Federer won Wimbledon, trying to steal Fed's thunder like the little beeyotch he's always been

I can't wait for the draw.
...and probably won't have until RG, so it'll be very interesting to see how the draw unfolds.

The only whining and moaning I see around most places is Nole and Rafa fans trying to discredit Federer's accomplishments by saying that he played in a weak era and that Fed would stand no chance against Nole in 2013 even though Roger has won 2 of their last 3 matches.

Ljubicic was #3 in 2006 and he was a very good HC player in that time. 3 tiebreaks in Miami that year. Besides, that same Ljubicic beat Nadal in 2010 after his prime.

He would've lost that point 10 times already against a real player like Djokovic or Nadal

You saw he was playing Davydenko? The same man who has 6-1 H2H against Nadal on the surface? In other words, what he tackled there Nadal has almost never tackled.

Now with regards to Nadal, it's still a bit premature to know just how far he can come back. He's made some real progress but we'll have to see him on the big stage and other events that are not clay to truly know. The next 4-5 months will tell us a lot of his future.
When you begin a physical decline and are past your prime life is over. Stop trying. Give up everything you love. Consider suicide. WRONG!! Keep playing. keep trying. Match your declining talents against the next generation. When singles is too much, take up doubles. Have fun. It's better to compete and lose than sit on your butt and do nothing.

Rosol also beat Nadal, but he isn't #3 now is he? And don't forget all the whining about slow courts, weak era, prime Fed who could beat god himself yada-yada. You reap what you sow.

Ar you seriously writing "You reap what you sow" to someone who registered here this year? What has he sown?

For you who has been here longer, guess who started the whole "weak era" crap......hint: It was someone who never saw it as realistic their idol would be the one winning most, and so needed "leverage" to declare him the best.
