Nadal:"Tennis is about victories. Who remembers the defeats [Soderling,Coria,Ferrer]"

Tell that to MTF.:angel:

"Tennis is a sport about victories. Who remembers the defeats? In fact, we speak about my success in Paris, 8 times out of 9, but not about the time I lost to Robin Soderling. We speak about the fact that I won Monte Carlo 8 times out of 10, not about the first time I played here in 2003, and I lost to Coria, or the last 2 years, when i lost to Djokovic and Ferrer. We speak about my 7 wins out of 10 in Rome, not about the time I lost to Ferrero. When I lose I'm not happy, but I'm not desperate. [hopefully, to be translated]
Just as I do not esaltavo to the stars when I was winning so much. I try to consider wins and losses with detachment. I am so pleased and happy with everything that happened, if I lose, I do not stop to be happy with my life. "Well! Being a champion so great and so proud there is no doubt that not tell the whole truth. Or maybe After 10 years of success, even the great Nadal is really pulling the oars: "Ten years is a long time for all, I remember well the first title here, and everything else, it is the weight of time to create me problems, but things that have happened in recent years. So many things, good and bad. One thing I have to say it, even if it makes me look conceited: my results on the ground were exceptional. I, too, if you go back do not think I could repeat myself. Let us also remember the 81 hits in a row that I've had on red. "Welcome home, Prince of Monaco."

Someone has a bad memory then...I remember very well Coria´s loss to Gaudio. 11 years and still pressed...

On the other hand, I also remember Soderling´s vicotry against Rafael.

It's just a point of view, do we speak how Soderling won or how Rafa lost? In a tennis match there's always two sides to talk about.

Re: Nadal:"Tennis is about victories. Who remembers the defeats [Soderling,Coria,Ferr

I remember Gullermo Coria "El Mago"and not Gaudio.
I remember Novotna crying after the biggest choke in tennis - Wimbledon! The picture is still in my head. But I don't remember Peter Korda or Thomas Johansson.

I remember the talent of Marcelo Rios, I remember Andy Roddick loss at Wimbledon 2009 and not Federer's fency suit!

There are champions who won't be remembered and losers who will. It is just a matter of personality or certain circumstances. I watch tennis because I enjoy the game. I will remember Fabrice Santoro, Arneud Clement, Llodra and many, many other magnificent players. Monfils will be rememberd for his hot game. To me, as a fan - it is not about the wins, it is about the players, personalities and the game itself.

Well yes, from teh POV of NAdal , its abt the victories. Same as how Soderling savors it as his own rare victory !!

Just goes on to show that Nadal is a positive outlook.

He just listed some defeats. Thought he couldn't remember them?

Of course Nadal wants to forget getting owned 3 times in a row to nobodies at Wimbledon. It's ok though, he's not bothered. He's so cool with it he takes 7 month breaks and gives 1000 excuses. He's cool with it though, no?

Defeats for one player are victories for the other. Nadal makes no sense, as usual.

The general public will remember Nadal for his victorious and the general public will remember Söderling as the man who beat Nadal at the French Open.

Who could forget the defeat in RG? that's only happened once. Who on the other hand will remember all the disappointing slam finals during Nadals reign of terror?

Even Rosols 5th set vs Nadal in Wimbledon is more memorable than 10 of his own matches. Seeing the moonballing Nabull doing the same thing over and over will only blend it together in one big mess, but those "defeats" stand out, like light in darkness.

That was beautiful. Now I feel like a beautiful human being and I want to dance in a fresh meadow covered with purple and orange flowers.

Like it or not, Nadal is the winner of 14 slams. True, most are on clay, but two are on grass and three on hard courts. I don't know who your favorite player is, but if it is not Federer, you have no business trashing Nadal's record, especially considering the Nadal-Federer H-H

The thing is a defeat for Nadal is a victory for someone one else. So someone will always remember it.

Nadal loses to a qualifier - whole MTF erupts ..

Fraud loses to anyone - business as usual .. Dulltards dont say much let alone go on thread opening streaks.

Thats just collective insecurity of a fanbase on display - not necessarily a memorable match where Rosol defeats a champ by out of this world play!
