Pretty much this. Or it's their way of baiting and disrupting the forum.

The bodybuilder is only entering his prime now. It is known that bodybuilders peak at around his age. Hence he can make 9 out of 9 finals since his return, play a marathon match with Djoker in the FO semis, and look like he can go another 5 sets. You can't quarrel with facts Kyle.

Case in point is IW this year where Fed was clearly hurt yet he played and didn't withdraw beforehand. Nadal, in a similar situation, withdrew vs Murray in the Miami semis last year.

Another thing is when Roger is injured you can see he is clearly affected, in IW he was arm serving anf didn't bend at all to return, whereas in nadal's case he is injured but plays like he wasn't. In Wimbledon 2012 I couldn't see on court that he was injured.

Nadal is never injured and he withdraws because he is losing. No one believes the guy anymore. No one with anything that resembles logic anyway.

GOAT Disucssions wont be complete without Ballerina. BodyBuilder and Gymnast Apart.. You have to remember that Builder still needs 6 Grand Slams to overtake Ballerina. And with his Effort of winning a Grand Slam we all know, it gets him a year off to a Hospital.

As for Gymnast, he needs conistency now. For some reason after winning a Tournament he goes on for a Walk ABout for around 2 3 Tournaments.

He was ready to play but he backed out because he got a little stomach virus, right?

Even if he was healthy in October he would have returned in February on his beloved clay.

Just came to my mind if Tennis didnt have Clay in it, Builder would have become a Dirt Race Bike Rider instead.

Fedtards are a joke. They start with the usual insults as soon as they run out of valid points and bring Djokovic fans for support. Not that they have many valid points to begin with anyway. As Nadal is the common tormentor of Fedovic, Djokovic tards are always willing to offer a helping hand to Fedtards.

No fed fans bring anyone to the discussion it is your illogical, highly biased, la-la land arguments that bring people of all fan bases to question your fallacious arguments.

And, you are the one who is a joke.

The Builder was just skipping HC to keep his precious h2h's positive. He probably thinks like his thick fans that h2h is the most important stat in tennis

When in the holy hell have I insulted Nadal? I just stated a fact, that Rafa was set to play the AO then he got a virus.

And, you are the joke
There is not a single illogical argument from my side. I explained with facts how 300+ weeks and his slam count are overrated stats. Federer starting his prime in a field without an all time great in his prime is a FACT. Nadal being injured and forced out of the game is a FACT again. I answered all your responses to it as well again with FACTS. You guys have nothing left and start with the regular insults like Bodybuilder, Dull etc. Kids stuff.

Yeah, ask any tennis expert if Federer's Slams and weeks at #1 are overrated. They'd laugh in your face.
