I have pointed out what you have have said that is either complete crap, or a subjective opinion presented as fact. Also, I've bolded up where the truth has been stated, and you don't like it.

What is the point of this thread? "Exciting" is a subjective word.

I like both styles and find Nadal's style spectacular and Fed's good too versus the average opponent, but Fed's game turns rather ordinary v Murray, Joker and Nadal. When Nadal plays Federer, Nadal plays a much more exciting brand of tennis out of the two, and makes Fed's usually fluent game (which he can bring against lower ranked guys) look rather average. That's a fact and commentators repeat that over and over. For example Nadal makes Fed run all over the place,twice as far as in his normal matches, and pushes him 2 m behind the baseline compared to Fed's usual position and thus takes away his strengths and a lot of his great shot making. He Makes Feds shots look ordinary because he has to hit them from uncomfortable positions so often.
Meanwhile Nadal looks like genius in the way he constructs points and maneuvers Fed all over the place, mixed with a lot of brilliant shot making.

Anyways that's how I have seen all of their finals and the commentators feel the same because it's clear as day. Its been the same at the last FO, WImbledon, and AO finals.

What's with the preppie gear...? Collared shirt, matched to his headband and wristbands. Normal shorts. And he almost straightened up and got a haircut... Jeez.

All I can say is at least he's not wearing patent leather boots out there a la Serena... (he'd probably win in them anyway...)

Dude needs some different drawers, or needs a doctor to figure out what he's pickin' at!!!:twisted:

I'd just like to see Fed show up in a muscle shirt, lose the belted pants, and kick over Rafa's oh-so-exactingly placed water bottles on the changeover. Then get the heck to net. That'd be a site to see... just the same... Fed needs to start winning to keep this a "rivalry."

Federer's tennis is much more exciting than Nadal's, I think this is a fact that is agreed upon by the general population. Federer's fanbase is also much bigger than Nadal's and that is because he is exciting to watch and is a good guy.

Federer is not an ******* like most of the *********s believe, how the hell would he win the sportsman of the year award (voted on by his peers) as many times as he has?

Also, I find Federer's responses a lot more honest than Nadal's sugarcoated bs.

I am a huge fan of both players. You are very hard on Federer with this post. Both Nadal and Federer are very likable and exciting. Federer, is opinionated and speaks his mind like most people do. There's nothing wrong with that and that doesn't make him less likable than Nadal.

Can't believe I'm about to say this, but I agree with you there. That darkness comment was bad. Btw, he called nadal one dimensional, which I believe at the time he was, but has long since improved and is no longer one dimensional. But thats a different story. As for the figuring out stuff, yeah, he needs to work on that.

About the video you posted, yes it's fun to watch but I think he was expanding too much energy at that time.

You don't want to burn out and you need to keep reserves.

Nadal plays a revolutionary exciting game... exciting to someone who hasn't watched much tennis before

Federer hits predictable shots... which are beautiful and predictable because we know how great he is
Nadal hits amazing unpredictable shots... once every 100 years

Federer is not a good fighter... in a fight against 1000s of people
Nadal always fights until the end... even though we know he doesn't last very long you know where.

Federer wears cardigans at Wimbledon to distinguish him from others... because he is the greatest
Nadal wears nothing special at Roland Garros... because he is nothing special

Federer- I don't work on my weaknesses... what weaknesses?

Federer- I know I can beat him... because he does every time.
Nadal- He will be a tough opponent... tough because nadal lacks weapons.

Federer- I should have won the match, I handed it to him... federer never loses, only gives away matches so that people think he is human
Nadal- He played better than me... 99% of the time.

Federer- He is one dimensional, you know what to expect from him... truth comes out from the legend

Federer plays a classic effortless game ... which is beautiful to watch
Nadal plays a revolutionary exciting game... exciting to someone who hasn't watched much tennis before

Federer hits predictable shots... which are beautiful and predictable because we know how great he is
Nadal hits amazing unpredictable shots... once every 100 years

Federer is not a good fighter... in a fight against 1000s of people
Nadal always fights until the end... even though we know he doesn't last very long you know where.

Federer wears cardigans at Wimbledon to distinguish him from others... because he is the greatest
Nadal wears nothing special at Roland Garros... because he is nothing special

Nadal is more exciting to watch and a more likeable guy than Federer.
I am really enjoying to see Nadal at #1 and Federer at #2.
Tennis needed a change and Nadal made it. Long live Nadal at #1!



-Does predictable mean...I predict the opponent to lose?, than yes, he is predictable.

-Not a good fighter? Coming back from 2 sets down, twice, to win 09 FO.

-I would like to see the quote where he says that he doesn't like being #2. He actually said it is better being #2 because there is less pressure to always win.

-He is so talented? 15 slams! Yes, he is so talented.

-Work on weakness? He is the most talented all around player, point out these weaknesses.

-He knows he can beat his opponent. Yes, look at his winning % every year, anyone would think that.

-One Dimensional?? This is the biggest laugh of all!! Federer one dimensional hah. you must mean the drop shots that spin back toward the net. The running forehands, one handed backhands down the line. Nadal, slam the ball over and over from the baseline. nadal net points?? ha, where. Nadal's dropshots are embarrasing for any pro. His game is all bash bash bash from the baseline, ONE DIMENSIONAL.

- Nadal, best in history. Yeah 6 slams, 36 titles, 46 weeks #1, that'll barely get you in the top 20 all time.

Federer is way more fun to watch.

That is true,it must be tough to see their favourite not even able to compete at Wimbledon and lose at the FO for the first time in his career.However some of them really deserve no sympathy whatsoever given how much they were bashing Fed this year,this thread is one example.

A Spanish claycourter with a heavy forehand and a two handed backhand. Never heard of that before. :rolleyes:

Federer hits predictable shots

Predictable shots? Federer has hit some of the sickest shots I've ever seen. Nadal has too, but let's not overdo it here.

Federer is not a good fighter
Nadal always fights until the end

21 GS semifinals in a row (and counting.) Not much more that needs to be said.

Federer wears cardigans at Wimbledon to distinguish him from others
Nadal wears nothing special at Roland Garros

He wore custom-made shoes with the number "4" on them, indicating the number of times he has won RG. And the pink shirt, lol.

Federer- I hate being called number two
Nadal- I don't feel anything different being number one

I keep hearing this. Never did Federer say anything close to that. He said that it feels weird being announced as the No.2 player in the world. That's natural, seeing as he was No.1 for over four freaking years. That's just indicating a change of pace. Nothing more.

Federer- I am so talented
Nadal- I will need to play well to stand a chance

Federer- I don't work on my weaknesses
Nadal- I need to improve many things

Federer- I know I can beat him
Nadal- He will be a tough opponent

Federer- I should have won the match, I handed it to him
Nadal- He played better than me

The first two are ridiculous, and unsubstantiated, either that or taken out of context. Please provide links for these quotes (whether paraphrased or not.)

I also never recall Federer ever saying that he handed a match to another player. If he did, Nadal fans would be running wild. But whatever.

@Nadal: Are you kidding? He gave very little credit to Soderling, and Gonzalez after AO '07. Not that I'm holding that against him, he's a champion athlete and he has an ego, just like every champion athlete, like Federer, Murray, etc. etc. But propogating that he is a perfect, infallible sportsman is both silly and naive.

Federer- He is one dimensional, you know what to expect from him
Nadal- He is the best in history

When will people get over this? The "one-dimensional" quote was made almost four years ago, and back then it true to an extent. Since then, Nadal has improved his serve, has gotten better at the net, and has flattened his forehand on hardcourts. So the label obviously doesn't apply now (I don't think it did then either, but still.)

Also, I remember him adding that Nadal has done more with that dimension of his game than anybody he's ever seen. So it wasn't a derisive comment per-se.

Nadal is more exciting to watch and a more likeable guy than Federer, but for some reason has never won the Edberg award which the winner is elected by his peers and is considered a prima donna in the locker room, whereas Federer has won the Edberg award multiple times.

People often express their feelings differently, whereas some players smash their racquets, and others go fire their coaches, federer cried when he was so close.

I genuinely felt bad for him when he was crying. :( But at the same time, I found it a little disrespectful. It's perfectly natural to be upset when you got so close to something worked so hard for, but then again, it's not like Nadal waltzed his way in there without trying. He worked his *** off too.

Did I not say that expressing emotion is fine when it's warranted like losing a loved one?

Crying after winning AND losing a tennis match is a little much.

First quote above: exactly the reason why Fed won RG and Wimbledon while Nadal is having early career problems with his knees. I reckon that if you stand a chance to see Federer live and see how he moves, you may change your mind.

Second quote above: Federer plays predictible shots? What? The players will be the first to disagree. Federer won RG precisely because he doesn't play predictible shots. Otherwise, he would have lost the Del Potro match and probably one or two sets with Soderling.

Third quote above: I thought most people agreed that the last 3 Wimbledon matches have been superb efforts from both players, and if you remember well, Federer was in all of them. He actually won two.

I agree with most of the other quotes, but I think it's plain funny that somebody thinks that a lazy and predictible player can be number one and actually considered the best ever.

It's a strawman argument because I said that it's ok to cry when you lose a loved one, not when you lose a tennis match.

You then said that my position was that it's not ok to cry ever, which was never my position at all. Therefore you created a strawman to attack.

"Even if he did cry (which he didn't, of course) he did it by himself in the locker room. He didn't ruin the celebration ceremony for Federer.

Federer's pathetic display at the AO 09 final was just bad sportsmanship."

You said that "Federer's pathetic display at the AO 09 final was just bad sportsmanship." Federer cried at the AO 09 final.

He said "I don't care about the sportsmanship of crying, I'm trying to understand your Cro-Magnon view of expressing emotion."

Your Cro-Magnon view of expressing emotion being expressing emotion publicly, as Federer did at the AO. We know that your view is against public displayed, since you defended Nadal's crying privately, but derided Federer's public expression. He never said that you think it's not okay to cry ever.

You are substituting a weaker argument for his opinion on your view and then attacking it. That's a straw man argument if I ever saw one.
So:
He thinks it's okay to cry publicly or privately.
You think it's not ok to cry publicly but it's ok to cry privately.
He inquired about your antiquated views on public expression of emotion.
You substituted a poor argument for his. You attacked a straw man.
You are an idiot.

edit: You're also a hypocrite.

Sir,

Who are you to decide when its okay to cry and when not ?

Thanks.

btw, Nadal cried after losing WO. Maybe:

its okay to cry 30 minutes after losing but not 15 minutes.
okay to cry in locker room, not outside
okay to cry at Sw19, not Australia
okay to cry in June, not January.

Federer- I hate being called number two

Federer- I am so talented

Nadal- He played better than me

Federer- He is one dimensional, you know what to expect from him

#1. Nadal's game is not revolutionary, although it may be exciting.

#2. Federer hits predictable shots??? This alone tells me that you have never seen him play.

#3. Federer is the best fighter the game has. He routinely comes back from 2 sets down. Did you watch Wimbledon 2008? Both players were fighting their hearts out!

#4. And your point is...?

#5. Okay, Federer is a perfectionist. It's not that bad.

#6. Exactly, Nadal needs to play well to stand a chance while Federer can still win by playing badly, so Federer must be better, right? (Note: I don't believe this, but you seem to, which conflicts with your own argument that Nadal is better).

#7. Federer definitely does work on his weaknesses. Again, saying Nadal needs to improve on many things implies that he does not have a strong all-around game (which is not true, but when you say it it conflicts with your own argument).

#8. Federer is more confident. A good thing, right? (I don't believe this either, they're both very confident people, but once again, you're arguing with yourself.)

#9. All right, Fed acts a bit arrogant in interviews after he wins, or loses. But Nadal is a bit more standoffish.

#10. Nadal is the best in history because he won 15 Grand Slams and completed a Career Grand Slam and has the most consecutive weeks spent at #1 in history.

Oh wait... that's Federer.

By the way: Federer is currently #1, not Nadal!!!

Conclusion: You're an idiot.

There are only 3 times in a man's life when he is permitted to cry. Pay attention cause I'm not gonna repeat this.

1. Your child dies

2. Your dog dies

3. Your mother dies


Any other time you need to cry, you better go hide in a closet somewhere and if you get caught, you hang yourself in there.

I cry when I work with strong spices and onions. In any case, I don't think we should judge someone by if they cry or not, especially in a situation we haven't been through ourselves. People often express their feelings differently, whereas some players smash their racquets, and others go fire their coaches, federer cried when he was so close.


First of all, no you don't cry from cutting onions. Its a chemical reaction from the onion being exposed to air, the reaction enters the mucous membranes of the eyes and your body secretes fluid to protect them, like when you get a blister from tight shoes. And yes, I'm a cook, thats how I know this. Second, yes, we should judge people if the cry or not. I tell my kids all the time to quit crying over nothing, or cause they didn't get their way. You must not have kids. If a man wants to smash a racquet or fire his coach, fine, thats what men do, they get ****ed off. Girls cry. My first post is my stand, and what I will tell anyone.

There is a reason they are called man's best friend. You must not have ever had a dog like that. I have. He was more than that even.

1. Mother: sister/brother/friend never gave you life, your father is a man, so he would expect you not to cry if he follows these rules.

2. Child: You never gave them (sis/bro/dad/friend) life.

3. Dog I already explained.

By the way, since when did so many men decide to cut their balls off. Were wars won and lands conquered by crybabies. Hell no. Do you think the men who stormed normandy were like "oh no I killed a ****, boo hoo", they looked at the fallen men next to them and soldiered on. Grow a pair. People die, thats life. There are a few exceptions I've listed. I'm 34 and have buried friends and family, more than anyone I have met my age. I cried once publicy and that was my dog who was born in my living room, I raised for 15 years, nursed through kidney failure, and laid next to when the vet came to my house to put him down. Man's best friend. The men in this world need to learn to be men, not girls.

LOL. Crying for your dog but not your father, brother, sister, etc. etc. Have some perspective.

Ah what do I care. Go feast on red meat, raise an ostracized child, binge on bodybuilding videos, flex, have a few ulsers, participate in a Civil war reenactment, marry a 40 pound wife, call people who show emotion "Nancy/woman/wuss/Dolly, name your pets "Rex, Hank, Tank, Butch", and follow your stupid arbitrary male code.

You watched too many war movies. War isn't some Jerry Bruckheimer blockbuster.

Almost all of those young men had a naive and idolized view of what the life of a soldier's like.
A lot of them ended up with posttraumatic stress disorder, scared for life, unable to sleep without horrible nightmares.
Many took up heroine because they just couldn't deal with those experiences.
And that are just those that were lucky and survived. Thousands of good men died alone on the battlefield, screaming and crying.

Calling those men crybabies, while sitting at home at your pc is a great insult.
