Nope, Roddick never beat Nadal at Wimbledon. Point is, Nadal endured much tougher draws than Federer at Wimbledon over the last 3 years yet won it twice (and skipped Wimbledon the other year). So if anyone is the true Wimbledon champion it is Nadal.
And Needle you totally missed the point. I brought up Federer losing 3 times in the 1st round of Wimbledon because you seem to value Nadal losing to Federer at Wimbledon despite it being part of Nadal's "learning period on grass". Nadal should have lost in the 1st round for 3 years instead of making 2 Wimbledon Finals, but he over-achieved. Some of Nadal's worst years on grass were almost as good as Federer's best.
All you are doing is making excuses for Nadal. Nadal has what he has. 2 "true" wimbledon titles. Federer has 6 "true" wimbledon titles. There is no such thing as a fake wimbledon title.
You had no point to begin with, Nadal's losses dont interest you but his wins leave you in a delusional state of fanaticism. Bottom line is, learning period or not, Nadal lost those 2 finals. He certainly knew what he was doing on the court in both finals.
"tougher" draw.... lol.....
Needle, another poster began using the word 'fake' in response to me using the word 'true' when I said Nadal was the 'true' Wimbledon champion. The point is I have no doubt Nadal would have won Wimbledon 2009 if healthy, so I don't really take Federer seriously as a 2009 Champion. Federer actually played worse in 2009 Wimbledon than he played in 2008 Wimbledon (despite the claims of mono).
Oh okay I understand man. I know how you feel though, I dont take Nadal as the 2008 champion seriously either. The point is, I have no doubt in my mind that Federer would beat Nadal at wimbledon if 2008 hadnt been the year his decline started. Not much glory invovled in beating a mono-inflicted and mentally worn Federer who was receiving beat downs from Mardy Fish, Roddick, etc.
my two favorites so far
Solid one hander.
How do those little tiny feet hold up a big kid like that?
^ No idea.
In any case it's one more evidence that a 1hbh is as cool as tennis gets.
This is an interesting picture in that there are three Roger's but the other guy doesn't seem to move.
I view the forums with posts-per-page set to 90. The first 'page' of this thread was amazing, it's just completely typical, and depressing, to see most of the second page devolve into nadal/fed rubbish.
My fave so far is this, I had it as a desktop for some time, if anyone has a link to a large-size version pls post it (or email me with it), I'd much appreciate it:
Tha is real cool, but I thought he looked a bit cooler on the version I posted (he's not even bothering to look)
But anyways. How about the forehand? Not bad looking either imho:
Hermes plays tennis.
You can continue bombarding us with several hundred Federer pics.
I still think he's a weird looking bugger and not my idea of cool.
Nothing fancy about this shot... but look at that footwork :shock:. If he didn't have a racquet in hand, you wouldn't have guessed that he was playing tennis.
snap snap snap
Set the camera on burst infinity, I'm sure even I would look cool in one of them ha ha
the fed aussie 09 ones and rafa french '10 ones are amazing! and the fed wimby and us '08 ones
This picture epitomizes the prime RF
This has turned into a contest between fed and nadal pics
should have known it would come to this
Rafa's cute little feet are indeed a serious problem.
credit goes to weaver
Good for you :neutral:.
Awesome pics btw guys and girls. The R&R (Roger&Rafa) ones in mid air are awesome.
do you have a higher resolution one of this?
From a different angle.
As for the Federer backhand at 2006 RG, this is not quite the same but it's from the same shot on a different angle too.
Slight break from the Fed/Nadal show this thread has turned into
Love this thread! Keep them coming! A few months back someone posted a picture in it's own post that had Berdych hitting a forehand and the Lux in his mains just bending all over the place. I looked forever to find that pic, it came from atp.com but I still had no luck. If anyone has it and can post it here that would be awesome.
