MTF loves its wars, but it'd be nice for a little bit to just put that aside and marvel at these guys. Turn it onto HD and then sit back and enjoy.

No sight is sweeter for me than Federer in slow motion.

Neat to watch Rafa too to see the energy he exerts (in matches more than practice).

Poetry? He's a haiku I wrote about Nadal:

Gracefully florid Federer and overwhelmingly athletic Nadal.
both beautiful in slow motion
I felt a bit uncomfortable watching the too flexible Gymnast and the clumsy Murray.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Slow motion clips are dead boring unless they're for analysis.

Well guess you can't change the negativeness of MTF even if you try. For me Murray is the most boring to watch strokes wise - Djokovics forehand is quite interesting even if not his best shot. Neither of those 2 have the charisma of Nadal or Fed though. Both of them are so unique in their shotmaking and different to each other that it makes an intriguing mix.

Love watching Nadal's practice - just a different level of athleticism to the era of Sampras etc.

Well you didn't call this "interesting strokes in slow motion" did you? You called it "poetry in motion" and as much as I admire Nadal's athleticism I wouldn't describe Nadal or Djokovic's strokes as looking "poetic" or graceful.

I won't commentate on Murray so as not to offend.
