That ungrateful Nadal camp. Out of the goodness of his heart, Novak donated Rafa a French Open and this is the thanks he gets? :sad:

Who cares about Phony's thoughts? The guy apparently got frustrated after several beat downs of his nephew and trashtalk is the only thing he has left.

Don Tony is used to controlling the world. Of course he won't be able to handle it. All we can hope is that it stops at words in the press and nobody ends up "sleeping with the tennis balls" :eek:

Uncle is pressed and desperate it seems...for a moment it seemed like slowing down of all courts will propel Nadull into total domination, but Faker just happened to find a cure. Tough times for spanish mafia indeed

Serbian website making a mountain out of a molehill. They took an answer where Toni says that Djokovic had a bit of luck and translated it into him saying that Djokovic had a lot of luck. :rolleyes: Starting drama where there's absolutely no reason for it.

well, he said more than that...but I agree it's a bit inflated by the press (which a good spin doctor knows will happen)

He manages to diss both Djokovic and Federer in the same answer :lol:


"Yes, it is clear that Djokovic is where he is because he deserves it, totally. But it is also true that, apart from being very good and being the best, he had a wee bit of luck that maybe could have facilitated us. For example, in Flushing Meadows, he played against Federer and he almost lost. And maybe, if we had played Federer in the end, we could have won ... Well, better not make these calculations. In short, you should always have a wee bit of luck."

There is a very good short story by Denis Diderot (18th-Century French philosophe) entitled "This Is Not a Story". For some reason it springs to mind.

I have to agree with Uncle T for the most part

Nadal was beating joker- then just before the clay season he loses 2 close matches- then he loses on clay- 3 in a row knocks all his confidence- and since then on key points he plays passive (moonballing) and novak abuses the heck out of that

nadal is mentally not 100% against nole just as Roger was never mentally 100% against Rafa

i hope people can now realise that you can be mentally clutch and still have a kryptonite player

i was thinking about sampras and if it applied to him- not obviously but i think brug once said- "i can beat pete anywhere on any surface"
bruguera had a leading H2H if i remember correctly- although they didnt play enough for it to be conclusive

I actually agree with Toni too there, and I'm far from a Nadal fan. For all of Nole's supposed dominance this year he got very lucky at the US Open vs Federer. I mean the guy was 2 matchpoints down on Federer's serve. Just think, if Fed had hit just one unreturnable first serve and the entire last two months or so on this forum might be totally different.

Kinda amazing to think about.

i cant believe i will stood up for the serbian media, but starting drama is when a person who is supposedly knowledgeable in tennis, says that 6 defeats and no clue what so ever how to beat his opponent, are down to luck
so that means you are in the range of uncle toni :stupid:

Most interesting in that interview, Toni says he hasn't read and will not read Rafa's book, he never reads anything about him or Rafa....

I have to agree as well with Toni and I am a fan of Nadal but not a big fan of Toni. Djokovic had been more than lucky this year. Not only at the US Open and all the moments posters above mentioned but also at the Rome tournament where actually all began in my opinion. With Nadal's illness in Rome and the tricky match against Murray where he should have lost, this opened the remainder of the year for Djokovic.

I agree as well Nadal got lucky in other moments of his career. Toni doesn't deny that in the interview. And I often hear Nadal himself claims he's been lucky in matches. I don't see a big deal. Just Toni being honest. That's my objective 2 cents.
