Default The egg

I haven't been following MTF much recently and can't help but notice all the references to Djokovic's egg. I suspect that the people who keep writing about the egg aren't Djokovic fans.

I am extremely stupid, so please explain to me what these references to the egg actually mean. As I see it, it could be one of two things:

1 The egg is too effective and is giving him an unfair advantage.

2 The egg doesn't really do anything at all but MTF's use of the word 'egg' is a euphemism for something else. In other words, you're all suggesting that (bearing in mind that tennis has weaker doping controls than the 1999 TDF) Djokovic's amazing fitness is down to something other than the egg.

Which is it?

They are just clutching at straws, trying to dig up any dirt possible It's early in the season, Nole played almost all the time at night, so no idea why is it so big deal if he's not crippled by one long match. Fed for example played 5-setter against Del Po at RG and looked pretty fine later on, don't remember anyone freaking out because of that.

Default Re: The egg

Bringing up the egg is similar to Rafa fans bringing up Roger's tears or Nole fans bringing up Fed's finger wagging. A way to annoy the other fanbases.

The egg = red herring.

As far as I know, the egg is in New York right now. Posters who bring up the egg again and again and again and again are simply worried about Nole being better than their fave.

It happens this way many times on MTF.

I guess they needed to refresh the old 17>5.

Nothing there, Djokovic explained it already. Just the way Fed fans try to provoke Djoker fans.

Don't give those clueless tards ideas. You know they love to suck anything that they might throw against their old man's rivals. Simply pathetic.

Do you actually realize it's not an egg.
