We know that he has changed from Queen's to Halle already. Now this article shows up in which he is complaining about the high tax rate. I actually somewhat agree with Nadull on this one but the guy is stinking rich so he comes across spoiled and bitter about losing more and more. Let's face it. He hates indoor tennis especially at the O2 because it's super fast. I am wondering if he has some ulterior motives or is this just about him getting more pounds/euros and paying less in taxes? Honestly the tax rate does seem very high, so I can see his point, but for him to claim that he is not switching to Halle because there are offering twice as much money in appearance fees is pretty laughable. That is VERY VERY HARD for me to believe.

Thoughts on this potentially explosive topic?

Who thinks the taxes are just insanely high?

Who thinks the top players need to stop whining so much and expecting to be coddled? I mean he is also complaining about the balls in Asia and upset at the US Open too because of scheduling, but also Murray and Roddick have complained about more and more stuff. What's the real deal here?

He's a crybaby :baby: Complaining about taxes? Nadal, you are a clown. Go and sulk about your latest loss somewhere where we can't see you :wavey:

As I was saying in the halle thread, I love the guy, but this whole thing makes him come off very greedy. He should just shut up and play.

I hope they speed the surface even more in Bercy and the 02 Arena:drool:

O2 isn't fast at all, it's ITF rated at medium/slow. Just the low bounce confuses things :)

Apparently playing Queens actually costs Nadal heavily, even if he wins the tournament, because it crosses some tax threshold.

Well Federer is leading the H2H in the epic Fedal cash hoarding rivalry.. so it's understandable. But what an epic match up it is.

Woah. Nadal has been quite outspoken this week. Quite weird. hmmm.....

The WTF is gonna move away from the o2 anyway in 2 years time. Next years WTF will be the last one held at the o2.

Wow what a douche ball. 50% isnt that much when you get to travel the world playing your favorite game and earning millions of dollars. That is a better life than 99% of people get to live. What an ungrateful little troll.

Bitches on this forum will cry, but at the end of the day, money is what makes the world go round. So I have NO problem with Rafa or any of the other top players ensuring they make as much money as possible. Greedy? Is that supposed to be an insult? Throw as much money as Nadal makes in my face, or have the opportunity to make much more money in a given situation, anybody should take advantage.

Oh, and he's right, the tax rate is quite high. He's only a man looking out for his best interests and the best interests of his fellow players. Smart man, very smart. Make that money, Rafa.

What? He's a professional athlete with millions of dollars under his name. He shouldn't be complaining about taxes, of all things :rolleyes: He's an ugly, greedy man :rolleyes: Then again, he is a little crybaby too, so it's not too surprising, I guess :shrug:

For the first time ever I actually agree with you.

Just because he has millions it means he shouldn't seek to make millions more or make as much money as possible? Please. You are ALL haters and bitter because he's a smart businessman, and you'll never touch his bank numbers if you tried.
