We know you are trying hard, GSMNadal, but you'll never convince any non-heya person 2009 was during the period of 2004-2007.

Nobody without TV and internet access you mean?

Nole did in the Olympics.

He is too mentally weak to do what Novak did. Not surprising coming from a player who's never had anybody decent to compete with for the majority of his career.

Avoiding injuries in matches that many is not pure luck.

Also, who's to say Fed never sustained injuries while playing? Just because he is not a drama queen does not mean he never had any.
Yes, much of it can be attributed to luck. I follow many different sports. There are many athletes with horrible movement who never sustain injuries throughout their careers,

Name one of them (the sports) that requires movement comparable to tennis, and more so, on surfaces comparable to those in tennis.

Few sports require such explosive yet restrained footwork. The constant, hard change of directions and quick, small steps interchanged with great strides is quite unique to the sport. Not to mention that this is primarily done on hard surfaces. And as if that weren't enough, few sports require continuous play like tennis does, let alone all from an individual player.


Common sense and a basic understanding of the human body yields that the more economical player is less at risk to injury, no matter how convenient it is to attribute it all to "luck".

Roger Federer’s friend and countryman Marco Chiudinelli tells ESPN Deportes that while he would like Federer to play Davis Cup more, it might not mean that Switzerland will finally win the Davis Cup. Playing without the world No. 3, Switzerland suffered a 3-2 loss to Czech Republic in the first round of World Group play, and will host a play-off tie against Ecuador in September.

“Obviously everyone on the team, including myself, are disappointed that he does not help us more often in these early rounds,” Chiudinelli said. “He played last year. And it doesn’t mean that just because he plays, we will win every time. We’ve lost series with him in the team. We lost against Czech Republic in 2007 with Roger. We lost last year against the United States, at home, with Roger. It’s not a guarantee of success with [Roger]. But obviously we have more chances if he’s with us.

“I always regret that he is not playing more. Everyone on the team regrets it. But there is nothing we can do about it….[But] he’s always honest about his decisions. We know a few months in advance. There has never been much room for discussion.”

Marco's absolutely right. It takes more than one person to win a Davis Cup, however, Switzerland are also privileged to have a solid top twenty player as their number two. Usually such a team would be going deep every year in Davis Cup, but it is of course up to Roger to decide what he wants to do. He's just let down his teammates a couple of times, I feel.

He downgraded DC among his proirities a few years ago, just as Wawrinka became good enough for the team to be a serious force. Bad timing for the Swiss, perhaps, but he was open about keeping/regaining #1 was the priority. He's not the only top player to have thought so. Sampras immediately comes to mind.

Yes, he did it in the locker room, where he didn't steal winner momentun or made ​​him feel uncomfortable. In public he behaved like a man.
