Hewitt played a really good match but it was not enough, still a great effort. Nadal was not happy with the weather today, he could not get the full spin on the ball and Hewitt's shots came in flat which troubled him. Good news is that apart from today and maybe on Tuesday(Nadal is playing on Monday and Wednesday) the weather is gonna be very favorable(not much wind) and sunny.

Overall it was a good match by Nadal over a very tricky opponent.

I know. Rafa's humbleness is why I like him as a tannis player. But there can be too much humbleness, and it just frustrates me sometimes. There must be a fine line, and sometimes I think Rafa is too hard on himself. Maybe he didn't play a good match, but he still won, so I wish he would look more on the positive, but oh well.. Him being a perfectionist is probably why he is such a good player, always wanting to improve. It probably is a good thing, just annoying sometimes.

No, no need to do that.. I like the fact that he is humble, but he almost never says anything positive about the way he plays a match, and it sucks. He should be more positive.

I mean, yeah, he is humble, and it's something I both hate and love about him, if that makes any sense, lol..

Q. I have a different question for you. Everyone in tennis loves Roger, respects Roger. He is said to be the best of all time. Yet two out of every three times you play him, you win. You've won six of the last seven times. Who's a better player?
RAFAEL NADAL: You like this. You are focused on the Roger thing, eh? (laughter.)
Yesterday with the clay. Today with the if somebody says I am better than Roger, I think this person don't know nothing about tennis. That's my answer.

Q. How so?
RAFAEL NADAL: Why?

Q. Yeah.
RAFAEL NADAL: So you don't know nothing about tennis.

Nadal shows the way but the Rafatards still fail to see the ligth.
Poor tards

Well... didn't he continue to say there was differential between players in the top ten. Didn't he say that on a given day, anybody could beat anybody? He said something like, "That's tennis."

I don't think Rafa's so much humble as he is expressing the reality of the situation except in a few cases I will refrain from mentioning. It's true Rafa, at this point in his career, has NOT achieved Roger's success. It's true most of Rafa's victories over Roger have been on clay... as he said. So it is what it is.

What I like about the presser is that Rafa seems a bit tired of talking about Roger! It's as if his career is "defined" by is rivalry with Roger, and I think he wants to be more than that.

So Rafatards shouldn't get all upset by Rafa's comments. He's just telling it like it is... What Rafa is trying to say is.. "Compare me to Roger when and if I ever win 16 grand slams; then we'll talk, but not now. For now, I'm tired of answering these types of questions." I mean.. Rafa is successful in his own right and in his own terms. He has his own legacy. It's not like he's a failure if he never has the same type of success as Roger.

Yes, you nailed it. I think there's a a truth to this.

Read into it what you want. but the words are clear. Rafa thinks Roger is greater because he has 10 more Slams, and he is tired of this BS.

I'm sure Rafa would be very embarrassed about the crap his tards talk in forums like this one.

He might think Roger is greater overall that doesn't mean Rafa isn't proud of his own accomplishments. That doesn't mean Rafa doesn't respect other players talent, game, and accomplishments, too.

Rafa is just stating the obvious concerning Roger. It's everybody else who keeps bringing up their H2H--which Rafa acknowledged his lead is due to beating him mostly on clay.

At the same time, Rafa CAN beat him. He said.. sure I can beat him. In other words, in spite of Roger's "greatness" overall, he can be beaten just as Rafa can be beaten.

So... Roger's past accomplishments don't really matter much if he has an off-day, or if another player just beats him outright. Sure, Roger is respected, but IN THE MOMENT, he's just as good as his last win , and as Rafa said, the same is true for him, too.

I just think Rafa is pretty realistic. I don't think he's necessarily ass-kissing at all.

No-one could deny that Fed's achievements are greater than Rafa's or that he's had the better career What is the fuss?

Rafa knows that he is good enough to beat Federer, no-one can deny that either.

I know. Like you said, he is tired of talking about Roger all the time, and I understand him. It should be about his game, not Roger's.

Well... I think Rafa's in a great shape.
But if you think about it, he's always in a great shape.
Lleyton played a very good match, with great highlights, he really wanted to win the match.

Also I want to salute everyone in the forum, it's my first day here

I dont want to torment you Rafatard: But the question Rafa answered was not who's achievments are greater (which is a no-brainer) but "Who's a better player?"

But hey, Rafa is the greatest on clay and he will remain so even if he does not win RG this year (unlikely).
