    Thanks for the link, a well written article. Most Federer fans can probably relate to the authors view point, while most *******s are still trying to figure out if the article is insulting to Nadal in some manner or not.

    No, we Nadal fans are quite happy that he has highlighted Rafa's extreme fighting spirit and never-say-die attitude. Brought tears to my eyes, as a matter of fact.

    Actually, it was Novak who showed fighting spirit and never-say-die attitude and it's a mystery why nadal gets credits there:roll:

    nadal choked badly, that's all, what's there to praise??
    This being said, I'm absolutely delighted to see nadal in his status of official Nole's pet.:lol:

    Besides, the only interesting observation in this mainly pathetic article is this :

    ''The power of your ground strokes, as measured by their average speed, was higher in the sixth hour of tennis than in the first.''.

    Maybe some expert could explain this (and the serving during USO 2010).... like YANNICK NOAH, let's say. ;)

    ^^ Novak is a quitter. He has no fighting spirit.

    Until it is proven they are BOTH innocent!
    Forget Yannick, he used to drink a glass of red before doubles finals to calm his nerves...great player but he lost it...and lost a lot of credibility with the guys. Sad.

    It takes 2 to tango & unless you were watching something else..these 2 guys were in a war zone (fortunately without the bombs!).

    Nobody died but a little part of Nadal did.
    Roger & Muzza are hurting too...another chance gone.
    How does it feel?
    It sucks...

    How does Novak feel?
    Winners are grinners!:)
    Until the next time...
    Can't wait to see them at RG.
