Funny seeing people posting shit about Fed about to be "humiliated"... Sure Federer loses often to Nadal but he almost always puts up a fight. In RG08 he got humiliated but that was 4 years ago - regardless of how hard Start da Fail clings onto it in his signature. (Nadal on the other hand got humiliated back, as recent as WTF11.)

Federer is serving too well to be crushed here. I expect this to be a close match at the very least.

no matter how the fedtards try to downplay it, feds pathetic losing record against nadal is going to be a huge shitstain on his career. should have risen up to the occasion and try to find a way to beat him but he thought he was the goat and he paid the price by becoming a laughingstock.

That's just stupid thinking right there. When Fed is in the ITHF(hall of fame) they are not going to be looking at his head to head against Nadal...that's so stupid, it's laughable.

Do they even mention that stuff with Pete Sampras or Andre Agassi, Hell No and they wont mention it for Fed.

Only Nadal and Fed fans care about that crap. Fed has nothing to prove. He got the French, which is the only one he needed. Doesnt matter if he played Nadal or not. He has it. As far as gold medal concerned, he has that too, even if it's doubles, the point is he got it.

As a Fed fan, I only care that he tries his best in each match and that he has the desire to keep on playing. Sure, i want him to win but in the great scheme of things, just continuing to see him play is a joy. No one, not Nadal or Djokovic will accomplish the things that Fed has accomplished and is still accomplishing at his age....When either Nadal or Nole get to 16 grand slams, look me up and they will get their props but until then, Fed is the one that those two have to equal in grandslams before either fan group needs to be talking trash talk.


That's all i have to say about that.

Tards, guys, fellas....

Federer doesn't need to be the best of all time in order to be the most adored and talented player ever. Let's be honest once and for all: Nadal is a better player overall, much more consistent throughout a match and much more adaptable to his opponents than Federer. So what? I can live with it.

What noone will never take away from Federer is the fact that in JesusFed mode he is untouchable (I don't care about the weeks, slams or other stupid records). That, the fact that he is an artist of the highest possible quality, hurts a lot of Rafa lovers and that's why, even at 18-9 and with Fed closing the age of 31, they still fear the old man. Rafa knows this detail (Fed being the embodiment of tennis itself), and can live with it. Actually he grew up acknowledging this truth and that made him the Rock that he is now.

I give a lot of shit abt their H2H, don't get me wrong, I would have loved it to be the other way around, but I can live like that, knowing that when Fed is flowing he is just untouchable, art of the highest and purest quality to watch. And this doesn't mean that Rafa is not talented. He is one of the most talented players that ever lived to play this hell of a game named tennis. Only that nowadays there are at least 2 players more likeable to watch. And I mean Fed and Nalby.

Even if it comes to, let's say, 30-11 at some point, and with Fed at 34-35 years of age, I am sure that in some God-forsaken day of some God-forsaken tourney that untouchable side of Fed will reveal itself once again and kick the hell out of Rafa's 29-30 years old big behind

We are reaching the "match-up" stage of the tournament when Nadal beats Federer and Djokovic then beats Nadal.

Nadal achieving a 10 winning differential over Federer and for Djokovic an 8th successive win over Nadal.

Just one word: No.

I don't even know why I bothered replying.

It depends on how you define "better". Nadal is more consistent, yes. (Although you could argue that in 04-07, Federer was extremely consistent as well, perhaps more so than Nadal.) Nadal may be the more adaptable one as well, but his adaptability is also overrated because his defensive playing style was designed by U. Toni to have as few holes in it as possible to begin with. The homogenization of the courts has also helped Nadal to adapt easier. But I admit that Rafa has made the most of his game and worked harder to make progress than Federer has. That is why I, if pushed, will admit I don't mind him winning 10 slams despite his annoying antics. I can also accept him having a winning record against Roger. My only real problem is his pathetic tards here on MTF.

The rest of your post I agree with.

True . It is a stain in his career but it's a price he has to pay .however nadull being owned by his main rival age wise is just as bad maybe even worse for 2 factors
1 nadull n Novak are around the same age .
2 nadull is in his tradition Prime and being own .
