Yes, I miss him . There was a noticeable lack of buzz in Cincy this year without Nadal. I am sure this Forum is not as much fun for haters either without Nadal to bully. Personally, I tolerate Rafa's game style but love the energy and excitement he brings to the court. Wish him a speedy recovery and warp speed return in the rankings.

I was gonna start a thread today about how much I miss Ralph, but you beat me to it, Ms Ralph.

I miss Ralph chasing Fed's slam count, it must really suck to be his fan right now knowing he's fallen behind.His knees are falling apart like the Titanic,it breaks my heart. It'll be sad if he just goes out like a claydud(which some ppl still think he is,sadly).

But as a fan there is always RG , so my Rafa will win RG again and show the detractors that he has no plans to quit.
I'm so thankful for the red dirt to keep my Rafa hopeful of the future. :D

I was pulling for Murray, too, but that has more to do Murray being too good a player not to have a Slam than anything else. I like Djokovic just as much, if not more. It's ridiculous how personal people take the rivalries and discussions. Lighten up, even the players like and respect each other.

Seems a bit ironic you saying that. I just watched some clips of the 2010 USO final and it was endless extended baseline rallies until one or other player finally managed to end the point with a winner or was forced into a fault. Just like in 2012. Similarly, the final set went to 6-2 (although it was a 4th set rather than a 5th) and Nadal converted championship point after Djokovic missed a forehand, again just like in 2012.

Ditto for 2011. Each of the last 3 USO finals were not very dissimilar in style IMO.

Some of the Djoker-Nadal matches can get a bit boring, but most of the times they have me on the edge of my seat ( like the USO last year or AO this year, or even the french. Just about all their matches I was really into the match). Yet watching the Murray-Djoker USO final, it was like wake me up when its over.

Oh come on! Their 2012 AO semi-final was one of the best matches ever played and was the perfect curtain raiser for the final. And you can't argue that their USO final didn't have dramatic twists and turns even if the level of play was a bit patchier because of the windy conditions.

Murray is completely afraid to force the issue or even come to the net 90-95 percent of the time.. Nadal and Djoker at least have some of that force the issue mentality.. I can't count the amount of times, Murray could have came into the net and end the point yet refused to do so. Whenever Nole plays Murray its as though Nole adapts Murray's strategy or "out pushing the pusher".

Maybe you can enjoy that but I sure as hell can't

At this level, you don't get pushers. You have junkballers who mess with the opponent's mind, you have defensive baseliners like Ferrer. The fact Murray prefers to let others make the mistake doesn't make him a pusher. He is simply clever.

Anyway, I do miss Nadal. His style never gets old and he has the most energy in the game. He would be my second favourite of the Top 4, after Djokovic. Even the haters should miss him, he's fun to hate.

"A clever junk baller" if you will who just chips and blocks shots back until his opponent makes a mistake. A PATHETIC style of tennis. Which makes my interest in the game decline even further from where it was.. When a player with that style of game gets to the top of the tennis word, it shows the sad state the game has become

I repeat. Did you not see the 2012 AO semi-final? I just cannot understand how you could write that match off as boring! Yes, Murray is a bit too tentative at times and it has probably cost him but at the USO final he came out in the final set with a renewed determination that belied his past collapses and took the game back to Djokovic with a vengeance. Probably assuming that he had already turned the tide as on previous occasions, Djoker was completely taken by surprise and quickly floundered trying to counter Murray's unexpected aggression on serve and renewed power on his groundstrokes. In that 5th set, where it really counted, Murray forced the issue with a vengeance. He seems to have turned an important corner in that regard.

Watching the 2010 and 2011 finals, I hardly saw Nadal and Djokovic approach the net at all. They just battled it out from the baseline much like Djokovic and Murray did in 2012. As I say, all of the past 3 USO finals have been very similar in style from what I can see albeit Nadal hit the ball with a bit more aggression as he typically does.

I get that you don't like Murray or his playing style but it seems to me you pre-judge him and every match he plays and condemn him for adopting the same tactics that Nadal and Djokovic also frequently adopt. IMO more prejudice than fair and objective assessment.

Not really. Especially at this time of year when all he would be doing if he were playing is mugging up the indoor season. He should just sit on the sidelines until the clay season rolls around next year,and then after it's over,go on hiatus again until the clay season rolls around again,rinse and repeat. He's useless any other time of the season anyway.

The third set of last years final was absolutely glorious.

Bit like Federer the next few years, get out and see him before it is too late.

So WTF Federer/Nadal was a double whammy opportunity for me, even if it was RR stage. Who knows how many times they will meet again in a final. Maybe never. Maybe Indian Wells was the last ever match up and RG the last ever final.

So? Other than winning on clay this year,what else did he do on other surfaces? Nadal has not won anything off of clay for 2 years,and by the time he ever gets back out there,it will be going on 3 years since his last title not on clay. His entire career has been like this so I don't really get why you're getting all worked up about what I said.

I never said it wasn't,but d*mn,in going on 3 years he could have won something off of clay. That's an eternity in tennis years without winning a thing off of one's best surface.

Federer and Djokovic are simply better hardcourters than he is. That's the simple explanation. So is Murray, these days, in 3-setters. He's made reasonably good runs on all surfaces.

Well,Fed did win The Madrid Ice Capades which is labeled as being played on clay so I guess that counts for him. As far as the other 2 are concerned I agree with you,and have pointed it out myself. Nadal really should have won something not on clay in 3 years,though. And he does get more scorn about it than anyone else because his best surface is seen as a peasants only surface by most of the folks around here. If he had won primarily on hard courts,not a peep would be uttered about it. Double standards are a funny thing like that.

While not all of those were beatdowns, it was a good post nonetheless. 8)

Even ı am bored with him I still wish him to comeback but that will not happen.İf it happens,it is going to be painful process for Nadal,just like Borg after he tried to comeback.
Did ı miss him ? NO.I think both on and off the court he isnt same exciting figure as he once was.

I always enjoy watching him play..in a best of 3 format. Basically in best of 5, it's either a boring straight sets beat down of a scrub that just gets sad after a while, or a match against a top player that lasts over 3.5 hours. I like watching nadal, but not for that long. Personally one of my favorite matches of his was the 2010 yec final. Not because Fed won, but because it was a close match, high stakes, some great rallies/long points, yet the match wasn't too long.

I'm not missing him but rather enjoying Murray step up in his place.

Why are you more interested in his buttpicking than his shotmaking? Is that all you look at throughout all of his matches?
What "shotmaking"? His loud grunting distracts me from seeing any shots that he hits.

Looks like you have the definition of a beatdown wrong too, like your fellow Ralpheena. So its YOU who got "shamoan'd". Feel pretty stupid now, don't you?

We can see BP that you have a thing for grunting, tight shorts of boys and butts,
we know how you roll. :twisted::twisted:

Please enlighten me as to how these were beatdowns?? Its only a beatdown if the loser does not even win a set. 2 of the above went 5! and one was 4 and the other was 3 in dubai.
