Nope, no way. Only Nadal haters make such ridiculous claims...

Nadal fails your own double standards.
I don't think anyone even knows what Rafa complained to the umpire about.

Give it a rest , haters, Rafa is and will always be a great champion. No one, except a bunch of scumbags, most of them already posting in the thread, has ever seriously questioned Rafa's Sportsmanship.
Let me preface by saying that I'm not a hater even if I don't enjoy watching his style of tennis. But it really puzzles me why he engages in this type of behavior. I can even forgive the whole ass picking and taking forever between serves if they help him concentrate but what he did today pretending not to be ready was so unnecessary.

Like you said evilmindbulgaria, he is a great champion who has the game to beat 99% of the tour so why even bother with the shadiness of deliberately interfering with the server's pace? As a Rafa fan, maybe you can shed some light on his psyche. I'm genuinely curious (no trolling here).

Hi guys, does anyone have a video link to the Nadal umpire discussion about Rosol's breathing? Sounds weird to me so I'd like to have a look...

Why would you say he was pretending?And why on that precise point? I don't think that Rafa benefited at all from the supposed "gamesmanship" people are accusing him of, that's all.

Also, deliberately interfering with the server's pace are accusations that are very easy to be made, but hard to prove. The thing is, whatever Rafa does is looked at under a microscope and then blown out of proportions in a hateful,disgusting way on this forum.

Now,let me ask you for your comment on something.A couple of post earlier a poster claims that the 2010 Stefan Edberg award should be taken away from Rafa. Now, of course, noone can take a claim like seriously except the delusional poster and a couple of others on MTF, but here is my question - why on earth was that same award given to Federer in 2009 when 1) he broke his racket in anger against Djokovic in Miami and 2) he cursed in primetime TWICE during the USOpen Final? What about his sportsmanship back then? Did anybody make a spiteful thread about it?

I hope you get my point.

The gamemanship with the complaining and the bumping is a little bit annoying but it should be alowed. He can try to get him out of his concentration or intimidate him when it is within the rules. If he wants to complain about his opponent breathing etc, and the umpire does nothing it´s ok by me.

But saying he was not ready for that serve, the coaching and the time wasting, those things are cheating in my opinion.

Nadal was exposed or the cheating bully he has always been today by a hero. He stands naked before the tennis world. There is no more hiding.

Default Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

didn't watch the match so can't really comment. But I don't think he bumped into Rosol coz he wanted to intimate him. It had never happened before and this was most probably an accident. He had other worst losses before such as trailing with the scores 0:5 but he never did that.

but if he really did complain to the empire coz of rosol's breathing, i do think this is not right.

he knew very well that he was going to lose, even toilet break wouldn't help him. He was not breaking any rules, a lot of players took toilet breaks or injury breaks.
