It's not unfair for the Year-End Championships to be played indoors - barring a few years it has always been like that - it's tradition. Indoor tennis has been around as long as lawn tennis and the indoor season isn't as prestigious as it once was, and the WTF helps keep some of that prestige.

And believe it or not, Rafa complaining about everything that doesn't suit him is a major reason why people dislike him, and he's been doing this for as long as I can remember.

He came, he saw, he whined and he blasted.

But its wrong and as far as the point of the poster I was replying to, its amply proven wrong by my post.

Wait when there is no Federer to save the tournament from specialists. We will have to call Berdych / Raonic the Year End champs (not just Indoor Champs - mind you). See how fast it loses its charm then.
What is wrong with that? So Berdych/ Raonic do not deserve to be champions at any event? When Davydenko/ Nalbandian won WTF did it lose its importance? They had to work extremely hard and were deserving champions. You have to beat TOP 8 PLAYERS. Not an easy task on any surface. Post US Open it's always been indoor season . I see no reason why it should change just so that Nadal & Murray win more WTF. I don't see Novak fans complaining because he is good indoors and has won WTF. Let us try to be objective here. Is it mandatory that Nadal/ Djokovic have to win every important event? Does that mean tour is in bad shape? It makes it extremely boring and predictable. Its better to have at least some kind of variety and some new faces as champions. Why does the ATP have to dance on the whims & fancies of Nadal? Nadal should improve his indoor skills and be competitive at WTF. Not the other way round . There are hardly any faster surfaces on tour now. Why don't we have more grass court masters then ? In the 90 s top players were excellent indoors , now they are not. That is the only difference.

Why mention Murray? He is petfectly capable of winning the WTF, he has pretty good indoor results, but he just has not shown up at the WTF yet... I am sure that can change.

Good thread. I can see both sides but in the end I agree with the idea he should develop his game for all situations. Fed managed it. Djoko has too. I understand that it doesn’t favour Nadal but I think it is a weakness of his game.

Yes, this Nadal is a modern day Robin Hood. Fights against injustice and inequality, even says no to a private plane to Madrid from New York to save the Spanish state money. What a humanitarian this Nadal.

No problems can be found.

Okay I usually sit on the fence with this kind of discussion but I'm fucking sick of Nadal and his whiny comments. They only seem to come from him - so fuck him. Why don't we change all the surfaces to clay then, no?

What a joke.
