Umpires should enforce the rules, however if they don't the players themselves should start complaining. Same goes for Djokovic

I can’t believe we’re quibbling over 10 seconds

What’s next? Players drinking water and toweling off on the change over after the 1st game.

If it was a Federer antic you'd be the first one to bitch about it... this is not a thread for sensitive Rafa fangirls

Well, I admit Nadal shouldnt waste so much time, at least this is true what people write here. In the other topics NO

After all this bitching, not only from MTFers, I still don't think or don't get the impression Rafa actually gives a shit. Hence I don't see him changing his habits soon. Whining like old ladies when they have arthritis is futile.

That's why the umpires should do their job and actually enforce the rules, since the concerned players don't seem to give a crap...

Of course he's the strongest and has the cutest arse on tour, but cheating is bad, even for the better and cuter ones

The ATP and the ITF are doing everything they can to favour moonballers, so what can you expect?

Cheating is something you do willingly, no? But this 'time-wasting' has always been a habit of his; it's not like he does it with malice. You're all acting like he should be dismembered. Consequence of Sunday, much?

Several things may come as news to you:
1/ I’ve never had a problem with Federer’s on court behavior - I even like his little mini temper tantrums.
2/ I’m not necessarily a Nadal fan – I just like him better than Fed because I prefer fight, grit, emotions.
3/ Being a Fedtard means you’re half retarded

Djokovic bouncing the ball 20 times is 20 times more annoying than Rafa stretching the rules by 5 seconds.

Personally, I don't think it's wasting time. He's using his time wisely.

Of course... so if someone is caught with cocaine in a blood test it shouldn't count because it's a habit too?

Of course, if you're biased towards Nadal...

Both are bad enough.

Of course, Rafa's too much of a sweetiepie to do anything bad intentionally...
