The guy, a 30 year old player with a worse footwork and inconsistent ball striking, was able to adjust the blue clay, turn a disadvantage to an advantage. Same goes for Berdych.

Nadal and Djokovic could not adapt to the conditions, so then they lest, and the panic came, and they started whining about the conditions and threatning they would not participate next year if the clay remains blue.

Apparently, you take Nadal out of his comfort zone and he's lost. Funny that less player were injured in Madrid than in MC.

Oh god you're right. And Verdasco is more talented than Nadal and Tipsarevic is more talented than Djokovic and and and smurf turf has no bearing on tennis played anywhere else.

Of all the things that prove that Federer has talent, this is the ultimate proof you've come up with?

Good for you, buddy. Good for you.

In some ways yes, at least as far as adapting their game to new surfaces.

makes nadal and djokovic even more endearing. they don't have the same physical gifts as federer, yet can still defeat the greatest of all time. proof that hard work, determination and most importantly humility, can overcome so much.

Not really. Delpo hurt his knee in Madrid,Serena hurt her back,and Fed said his back and hips were bothering him after playing there. Fed even called the trainer in Madrid. How often does Fed call the trainer? In his whole career I bet you could count on one hand how many times he has done that.

Whoopdeedoo, Federer proved he can play on an ice rink better than Nadal and Djokovic.

What a great accomplishment!

These aren't injuries. Real injuries happened on MC.

They're not injuries? Could have fooled me considering Delpo specifically blamed the Madrid "clay" for his knee injury,and has been taped up like a mummy ever since. Fed himself said the clay caused him to have to struggle to stay upright,and that it put a ton of pressure on his back and hips which has caused him pain. He almost pulled out of Rome because of it even. Again,Fed called the trainer in Madrid for the first time in years. He was clearly bothered by something there,as it's no coincidence in happened while playing The Madrid Ice Capades.

Send me the link for the interview that Delpo alleged that.

I can remember the Monaco injury in MC...

Proof? We don't need anymore proof. The proof is a breathing, living legend that still impacts the tennis world in his 30's and will go down as the GOAT when all is said and done.

By the time Nadal and Djokovic get into their 30's they will be losing in the 2nd and 3rd round of majors.

Not likely on 2/3 accounts. Fed will probably ruin his reputation pouting about losses to Djokovic and many other players so that the public gets to see the real hate-filled jealous Federer, and Djokovic will adapt his game - he's clever like that. Nadal, yeah he's done for.

Even if that were to happen, it doesn't prove jack.

It would just show Fed's game is better suited for old men.
