This moonballing mug needs to either retire or suck it up and accept the fact that the ATP won't always cater to his pathetic demands to cheat his way to victories.

The ATP has already gifted him countless slams for slowing down every single surface to suit his pathetic moonballing game.

London (CNN) -- Rafa Nadal may wholeheartedly believe that hardcourts are "too tough" on players' bodies, but there is currently no proof to back up his claims, a leading sports scientist has told CNN.
Quote:
"Identifying trends is still very difficult, but I know of no convincing evidence to suggest that there is an increasing problem that more players are now becoming more seriously injured."

Winter isn't without sympathy for the 26-year-old, who he says has suffered a lot during a seven-month layoff from the game, but a knee jerk-type reaction by the tennis authorities is unwarranted.

"To what extent is this an expression of disappointment and to what extent is this an expression of a general trend?" added Winter.

"For what it's worth, my money is on the former more than the latter.
It is heartfelt and sincere expression of disappointment which one should sympathise with, but it is not an accurate comment on a general trend."

The ATP declined to comment on the matter.

Winter: you're a tool. Anyone who actually PLAYED on hardcourts and clay knows exactly which is worse for the joints. There is a reason why players in veteran series don't like to play on hardcourts.

Why do players who prefer hard courts like Connors and Agassi enjoy long injury-free careers while dirtballers are usually washed up in their late twenties? Obviously dirt is softer than asphalt but points on dirt last much longer. There is a reason why Roland Garros has always been considered the toughest tournament to win. Nadal's two longest injury absences were both after a long clay season and at the start of the grass season. Winter is correct that anecdotal opinions are not evidence.

This used to be true, but not anymore. Check the winner % stats for every GS tournament if you need proof. It's far easier these days to finish points off on clay than on slow hardcourts.

Because they clowned for years, that's why. How many slams does connors and agassi have again?

They only worry about their dirty money. Those snobs are just a bunch of greedy pig capitalists.

The correct word is do. Connors has 109 titles and if he hadn't clowned around he might have had 200.

Excuse me, but isn't Agassi the guy who had to sleep on the floors since his teenage years since his back was a total mess? The guy who was forced out from the game by crippling hip injury? As for Connors, he played most of his career during an era when hardcourts weren't as dominant. In fact, ATP lists him with 617 hardcourt matches - less than Federer! Plus, many of those matches were played in tournaments where many of his opponents were, shall we say, not that formidable.
