Well, after the match against Brown a dozen topics were started.
All about some kind of Roast, Dust(King) etc etc...

I really can't...
Ok, yes he is disliked a lot on here, but come on.

He has proven he can play well on every surface. Having won slams on every surface multiple times, and having lost finals on grass and hard against the very best (Djokovic and Federer)
So even the biggest haters can't admit he CAN play well on every surface if he's on?
You sure can't be serious every slam win was a fluke, and every slam win was by cheating. Wimbledon 08 was one of the best tennis matches EVER.
While I dislike the PERSON Federer, and thats obvious when I post, but I never take anything away about what an exceptional PLAYER he was and still is.
Yes, the goat debate is becoming more and more clear that Nadal won't surpass the slam count. But hasn't Nadal proven enough already?
I watched the match, and Brown played very well. Very entertaining game.
While we look at Nadal's losses past Wimbledons we can see:
Rosol: on fire (Nadal injured months after that)
Darcis: on fire (Nadal injured months after that)
Kyrgios: on fire
Brown: on fire

Every single match the other player just played very well. Yes, you can lose against a lower ranked player when that player is just playing very good tennis.
Federer also lost against Stak who was on fire.

It's clear Nadal has declined and still will decline more.
People get older.
What is so shameful of getting older? Whats so digraceful about decline? People don't blame Hewitt and Haas for still playing, why should they blame Nadal?
Nadal still has lots to give and will try his best. I just can't understand the topics inhere.
I watch a Nadal match because I like him, I'm a fan. I don't watch a match just because I want to see the other player lose...

So yes I am sad because Rafa lost today. Will I be hating on Brown now? Ofcourse not. He's a likeable guy and I wish him the best. How he played today would bother a lot of players, afterall, he's a grass court specialist.

So can't the haters just stop being idiots and watch the game because you enjoy watching? Not wanting someone to lose.
This is some sort of obsession for some guys...

Winning a tennis match legally would be a good start. Okay maybe he had those back in 03-04.

I dislike his style of tennis as much of the next person but the hate he gets is far too much, but you just have to look at it and laugh. MTF is a place of entertainment you have to remember! :)

Yet to prove he is able to win a tennis match without significant advantage in athletics.

1)That he is capable of defending a title on another surface.
2)That he can adapt or change his gamestyle and not stick to the same shit since he was small.

OP is exactly the sort of reasonable tennis opinion that does not go down very well on MTF.

OP is also a well known horrible poster and I'm sure a poor human being as well.

It's obvious that there are many people who hate Nadal and celebrate his every loss. Then there are several Fedfans, who hate Nadal and take it as a revenge for Nadalfans to mock Fed when he started to losing more and more. Then you have people like me (admittedly), who like to take the piss out of the favorite and his tards when he loses. There you have 3 groups who are potential source for these threads. It's the same for the other players, but mainly for Nadal and Federer.

And btw it's laughable to think that every user watch the game out of the pleasure of the game itself, many of the users don't even watch the matches. And that part about not wanting someone to lose is very rich from a rabid Fedhater like you, suddenly Noserer isn't the worst person of the planet and tennis isn't saved by his every loss? What goes around comes around...

Serena in 2014 lost in the 4R at the AO, lost in the 2R at the FO and lost in the 3R at WB, everyone was saying that she was done. Then starting at the US open she won the last 3 slams and is back in contention for the all-time slam record. Rafa will bounce back, stop being drama queens.

ATP tour is on a different level compared to WTA tour though.

Serena brutalizing the WTA tour, is simply not possible to replicate on the ATP tour - for anyone.
On topic, Nadal has nothing left to prove, so can go fishing for now.

Da fuk? OP is generally a terrible poster and a hypocrite. He was laughing his ass off at Federer's decline but can't handle the same thing happening to Rafa.

What does Nadal have left to prove? How about winning a tennis match while actually following the rules of the game. I for one have yet to see him do that.
Also, all surface player lol what a joke. He'd a glorified clay specialist that benefited from the homogenization of the courts and the shitty grass in the second week at wimbledon.

You make it sound like the competition in ATP is the same as currently joke WTA where Serena is basically punching every girl off the court.:wavey: Nadal has lost his physical advantage, the only reason that he won tennis matches despite being anti-tennis for more than a decade. Yet dream of fluke has never gone for his fans.
