Poor Federer. In denial.
He says but he doesn't
As a Rafa supporter,i say it's a good thing that he still has that belief. Hopefully FO this year will be more interesting to watch.
"I'm happy how I am playing now and it's getting better every week,"
Is this not what he said back in indian wells, miami, monte carlo and rome
And every time its the same result no matter what but this time federer has a chance he has a good draw
Considering how badly Federer played in the fifth set at the Australian Open, I wouldn't say he was "so close."
Nadal still won. It's not like he was rattled by the two games he lost in the final set.
On the contrary, I'm sure he was very happy.
Nothing can rattle Nadal except injuries, which Federer cannot inflict upon him without being put in jail.
Glad Federer feels like he's playing better! I'm really excited to watch him play in this tourny.
Rattling Nadal is not enough. He will be shaken, but not stirred. He will just raise his level a notch and demolish Federer.
he's saying what he needs to say. frankly if his message was much different i'd be pretty apprehensive myself.
Federer is delusional, just like his worshipers here.
He should worry how to get to Nadal and the finals first, since he is not able to do that as well any more.
''Federer is delusional, just like his worshipers here.''
You didn't have to go there your just asking for trouble
but he made nadal work in that match, that's for sure.
Rattle does not mean "beat" or "win".... Any player in the top 50 should be able to rattle Nadal, doesn't mean they are going to beat him.
I am just honest and telling the truth.
Not as much as verdasco in my opinion
Well to me it's a good thing that the Fed is having his confidence back.Not that he'll beat Nadal at RG,but he'll at least make FO(if he reaches the finals)competitive.Thus worth watching.I don't like *** whopping,beatdown.etc.
I agree. I am sick and tired of him bagging on fed fans. Btw, I see nothing delusional about what he said. No one really knows what he meant by "rattle. perhaps it means taking more than 4 games off of rafa at the french. I feel like fed can never win here. I don't get what he's supposed to say.
Definitely....he would have probably taken the third set if he had broken Nadal's serve.
Ultimately, though, the fifth set was somewhat of a disappointment with 2 breaks of serve.
lmao!! Wow, thats a good one.
i think at that point federer just kinda gave in, which is a sad thing to see in any match. but for those four sets, i had no idea who was taking it. when federer won the fourth, i honestly thought that he was gonna raise his level to take the fifth.. but didnt turn out that way
yeah, Verdasco really pushed nadal. against ANYONE else he would have been the finalist and not the loser. one of the better matches i've ever seen, until the end. that was a disappointing final game, but incredible match.
Djokovic is delusional, just like his worshiper here.
He should worry how to get to Nadal and the finals first, since he is not able to do that as well any more. When was the last time he played in a final of a GS?
Rattle: to utter or perform rapidly.So maybe he meant that he's going to outplay Rafa at RG!!!
oh no, don't bring djokovic into this. Otherwise 2/3 of this thread will be you and him going at each other and calling each othe trolls.
Good stuff. Sounds like he is working hard practicing. Hopefully he continues that.
lol, I'm going to with winning more than 4 games because that seems more likely.
Fellas please let's keep this thread clean.Pleaseeeeeeeeeeee.
Listen we all thought Sampras was done and he did win that final US open to shut everybody up. Agassi won the french open and we though he would never win on clay. I think Fed has a slight chance to pull the upset but I would not put money on it.
Haha I have stopped taking him/her seriously anymore...
How don't you have faith in your fav? The guy reached 3 finals in a row and a semi,which is no bad imo.You never know which Fed 'd show up in the finals.Not that he'd win but at least give Rafa a tough match.And i'm saying this as a Rafa supporter once again.
well I'm talking specifically about the french open, not in general. I'm not sure if roger is saying he can rattle nadal in general or at the french. If he meant at the french, then I'm going with winning more than 4 games. I still have faith though.
Fed is just building himself up only to get knocked down again aka Roddick style. lol
That is exactly what he and P_Agony do on each and single thread. Start with mindless nonsense attacks and destroy threads on purpose. And they always do that in sync. P_Agony just started with trolling on Michelangelo thread. Unbelievable.
i think many people agree with me-how can i get this through to you?
you are the worst poster on this forum. no. really. you are.
just stfu will ya.
LOL, so Djokovic says something like this and he's just confident. Federer says the same thing and he's a clown. Funny.
"Rattle" is one thing. "Beat" is another. LOL.
Rattling a player isnt going to get you more slams. BEating a player will
thank you for your valuable insight o impartial one you
You always have to believe in your chances even if they are small.
Do you expect him to admit he can't win?
Well Fed didn't even have to say that to be a clown in general terms. lol
Maybe physically rattling him before a match might do the trick
i'm not a rafa or federer fan per se, i.e., i'm not loyal to either of them. however, given my somewhat biasedness towards sampras, i usually want federer to lose for that reason, among others (his arrogance, the self-important attire, the backhanded compliments to players, etc.).
but, the guy is FAR from finished. i do believe him when he says he can still rattle players and win majors. of course he can, and he will. if he goes this entire year without winning a major or getting to a final/semi final, then there would be concern...
I just briefly read through the thread and I have to disagree with you. I see nothing wrong with what P_Agony said. The only person who I saw trolling was you with your "mindless federer bashing". Anways, I don't want to get into an argument with you because I know it will be pointless.
Are those that are fans of Federer to stop believing in him now? Are they not to take solace in the fact that he feels like he is playing better? It's one thing to say he is going to win the French Open, but it's another to be hopeful that he can give Nadal a good game.
People let's keep the flame out of this thread please.We're all mature enough to get along each other,can't we?
fed's the one that seems rattled and scared
Nothing wrong with this?
Pure trolling and lies.
When you think of it that way, it actually sounds he is discouraged and only hopeful to make it close. lol
This article isn't news. A player said he believes he can win. Big deal.
You arent going to rattle a mentally tough player like Nadal PLAYING HIS GAME. You have to attack consistently and not let him breathe. Never let up on him. Fed just doesnt have what it takes. He should have kept his 2003 game. Not the baseline weak crap he has now which a player like Nadal can expose all day long
