Ya and Nadal never plays hamburg and munich/gstaad are journeyman tournaments..

Basically in boxing, this is what they would call a paper champ!

Uh, well he beat Coria in the Hamburg final the year that Coria was the hottest claycourter out there.

The only reason Nadal is winning all these clay matches, is 'cause he THINKS he is good, but in reality he isn't, he's just fooling himself

Maybe because he always loses to Nadal. Just a thought as to why he was brought up.

I knew he would get brought up, but I guess I was hopeful it wouldn't be in a condescending manner towards Fed.......and this is coming from me, a Nadal fan.

Sorry man. Fed fans are always talking trash about Nadal so I always feel like attacking back. Fed would be winning plenty of clay court tournaments if it wasn't for Nadal as he is clearly the second best clay courter out there.

Yeah us Nadal fans are on a big high right now so I guess some of us like to trash talk. We were the ones getting trolled a lot during the hard court season. Especially with the Berdych incident in Madrid. Anyways we should not take credit away from Federer just because he can't dominate every surface. Federer and Nadal are friends. It should be a win-win with Nadal and Federer doing great.

Vive, you should feel like the happiest man alive today, no? ;)

Congrats to Roger! And you too vive, since your constant support of Nadal's opponents finally paid off today.

That's hilarious. I should try that. I've never played tennis before, but if I just think I'm good, then I'll win 81 matches in a row.

That must be why Federer's won all of his matches to.

Mind over matter, I think therefore I am.

eheh... thx !
ah yes you're right, i'm happy : i think i screamed louder than roger in front of my TV when he won the match point ! :D
(the cat was afraid when i did that)

a bit similar to what i felt when i was rewarded for having supported goran during his bad years, at wimbledon 2001 !
... a big difference being that i also liked pat, while today... well, you know...... ;)
(and that he ends this damned streak - on a donut - is a delicious bonus !)

but let's now head to RG... with more confidence !
allez roger !!! :D
