    It's funny she's the biggest troll and all she does is accuse others of trolling, what a joke, LOL.

    Fed had a normal practice on the grounds yesterday for the first time since he got sick; signed lots of autographs, was smiling.

    So seems to be physically back on track.

    Have you completely lost it? No matter how annoyed you may be at a poster, this is a disgraceful statement.

    The irony is that you wouldn't be making this comment if it was directed toward a *******. That's the most disgraceful thing of all.

    What? That is just way over the line, wishing death on someone is horrid. Wouldn't even say that about some of the biggest trolls on here like Nadalwonbullzillawhatever..

    Rafa isn't favoured by the surface distribution. Most of it is hc, and Fed is the betetr hc player (indoors is not a different surface either...).

    I don't know, certain hardcourts suit Nadal quite a bit, like Indian Wells where he's always done well. Federer overall is a better hardcourter, but against Nadal he really needs to play his best or play on a fast low bouncing hardcourt, because on anything nuetral or slow and low bouncing Nadal just has the game to make Federer's day very difficult. If Federer plays bad and it's on a court that suits nadal, then Federer is gonna get blown away like last year in Miami. If Federer plays well and the court is slower it might be a close one like AO 2009 or Miami 2005. The difference there was in 2005 Federer was the better player and in 2009 it was nadal, but both matches were close.

    There is no such thing as a hardcourt that suits Nadal more than Federer. Federer is the 2nd or 3rd greatest hardcourt player in history. Nadal beat 2006 Federer at the fast hardcourt DUBAI. Nadal is just too good, regardless.

    Wait are we talking against the field or against each other?

    Against the field Fed is a better player no matter what type of hardcourt. I think 4 AO's to 1 AO essentially shows that against the field Fed is better even on slow HC. Against each other, slow HC is definitely in Rafa's wheelhouse, the H2H is 4-1 on slow HC I believe.

    For Rafa vs Fed, Clay >Slow HC>Grass> Fast HC
    For Rafa vs field Clay > Grass > Slow HC > Fast HC

    For Fed vs Rafa

    Fast HC > Grass > Slow HC > Clay

    For Fed vs field

    Fast HC = Grass > Clay > Slow HC

    Clarky is one of the most annoying posters to me, but wishing death on someone, really?? Imagine how you'd feel if Clarky truly committed suicide after that Big_Dangerous. Hope you wouldnt feel to happy.

    Hey dude, you could learn some tolerance. Or put her on ignore.

    I actually find Clarky quite amusing (even if all her threads follow the same one pattern), lol.

    And before i forget:

    Nadal on schedule for another Joker drubbing ....

    Am I the only person that actually likes Clarky? Yeah, I don't agree with her most of the time, but she has some pretty insightful views on tennis and the players. It's pretty evident that she loves the game.

    At least she knows how to play the game and it's intricacies, unlike others who have no comprehension of tennis mechanics.

    Clarky

    good points

    Can recognise flaws in her favourite player
    Can recognise good things about rival players (ie Federer)

    bad points

    Goes well over the top about Nadal facing defeat in every match
    Goes way over the top on the djokovic hate, and contradicts herself on whether he is a weakling who had to dope, or a superman who fakes injury because he cannot ever be injured

    I agree. I generally like posters and people who love tennis. Clarky, MichaelNadal, Mustard, and a few other Nadal fans really love tennis, and that's easy to tell. Many of our fellow Federer fans love tennis as well. But a lot of people here don't actually like tennis, they just like the player and want to see them win, regardless of the medium. It's pretty apparent in their posts.

    I do? It's no secret I don't like him,but I hardly spend time in his match threads and such bashing him. Unless you find my harmless nicknames to be bashing,which is silly since to me it's all in good fun. I have also complimented him plenty,and have given him credit for being a great player. Shoot,I bash my favorite a heck of a lot more than I do Djesus.

    yes, and the same time Nadal was getting beatdowns from Blake, Berdych etc who were getting beaten regularly by fed ..... Shows that win was either a fluke or just due to matchup problem or just a choke from fed .....:)

    Oh and federer is the greatest hardcourt player in history and Dubai was medium-fast, not fast in 2006

    Still no real evidence that Clarky is, in fact, female. I think that is just an affectation as part of this troll's parody of a "typical" Nadal fan: paranoid and jealous teenage girl. I'll never forget the fact that he/she knew Nadal would never get past Lacko at the Australian Open.

    Well, there's nothing to prove otherwise, either. I mean, we can't assume that every poster here is male.

    Yes, if you count complimenting his chemists and egg chamber suppliers as giving him credit for being a great player, because that is the extent of your praise.

    Well,there's no real evidence that you are in fact male. Should we start to refer to you as an "it" since we can't be too certain,you know. :roll:

    And I AM FEMALE. Some of you really need to get off this train about this subject. It's starting to get very bizarre at this point.

    Yeah, I don't understand why it matters of what gender you or any other poster are. If we're all tennis fans here, then it really makes no difference. Bulz1lla, for whatever reason, was particularly perplexed that a female would be posting here AND actually know something about tennis.

    Sure it is,It. I have said that I believe all of the top players are taking something,not just Djesus. Just like several other people here believe the same thing. And I have given Djesus plently of praise on here. Shall I send him flowers and gluten-free candy in oder to make you happy?

    Yeah,and I do not get the obsession with my gender on here from some people. I have said I am female because I am. Why would I go to the trouble of lying about something so mundane and irrelevant on a tennis forum? All it is an ad hominem attack on me. Nothing more nothing less.

    Ha ha ha. People always think that. I'm used to it. One poster explained why, but it was a long time ago and I've forgotten.

    I don't agree with this position because the courts are the same and have been since 2001 or 2002. They didn't suddenly get slow as Federer is aging. And, regardless of how many tournaments are on a particular surface, a player can only play a certain amount of tournaments per year anyway.

    It seems to me, since I've been on this board, that whenever Nadal has won a certain event the surface immediately became slow. He couldn't win on grass because it was too fast. He couldn't win on hard courts, because they were also too fast. Then, when we did, those fast courts immediately became "slow."

    However, when he burst on the scene the courts were always considered "fast." Now, shockingly, the powers to be have conspired to slow all of the surfaces down to indirectly benefit Nadal.

    That would never happen.

    Everyone knows there are more hardcourt events than any other surface.

    Uhm..No. AO was changed to plexiscushion in 2008. USO was considerably slower last year due to the change in balls, it was also slowed down in 2006 when Roger first complained about it, same with FO which was slightly faster due the balls used. Wimbledon? Well, it's certainly slower but whether or not it has been slowed down after 2002, I'm not sure.
    Either way, while Roger may be an all-surface player, slower, high bouncing surfaces clearly put him at a disadvantage against Nadal.
    It seems you actually bought the BS Jacksonbile spouts

    Apparently Rafa said this in his presser when asked about the slow conditions at IW.

    Have Federer and Nadal grown apart? They seem more willing to verbally go at each other more frequently.

    I suppose it's not terribly surprising. But, I'd hate for there to be so much tension at the top of the game outside the court.

    How is it Fed's fault if Rafa get's time violations? IMO that wasn't a very classy thing to say. I hope this is just the media twisting his words to make him look bad and he doesn't actually believe this.

    Fedal bromance :(

    Is he talking about court conditions or the time taken between points?
