    Surely if that was the case, they'd have sent a picture of a bloodied, but bigger Wilson racquet?

    Some of the posts in this thread are ridiculous.

    But.. hope Fed stays safe.

    Firstly, 99% of threats are nothing more than threats. Secondly, nobody is harder on their player than Federer fans are on Federer. Thirdly, most stalkers walk the line between love and hate for their subject.

    Exactly, Federer is the last player I'd want to see retire. Since 2008, both Murray and Djokovic have been more of a threat to Rafa at the slams.

    So as a Rafa fan, you mean you want Rafa to further slaughter Fed on a tennis court. How cruel can you be ? :twisted:

    That and also the fact that Federer helps Rafa every time he eliminates Murray/Djokovic. Although admittedly Federer rarely makes a slam final, so not much of a help.

    2nd Round isn't bad. Federer has lost in the 1st Round of Wimbledon THREE times. Rafa has never lost in the 1st Round of a slam.

    And Rafa? Well, he didn't even make it to the 1st round of a slam 3 times.

    But then Federer is the player with the 2nd longest streak of consecutive Grand Slam tournament appearances in Open Era tennis history and he's considerably older than Nadal.

    And Rafa already has won slams for 8 years in a row (9 years when he wins a slam next year) and he's considerably younger than Federer. By the time Rafa is Federer's age, Rafa will have an unbelievable streak record which will never be broken.

    Pfft. Nobody cares about winning slams for consecutive years in a row. The important thing is total number of slams won overall.

    Care to remind me again, RAFA2005RG. Who actually has the most Grand Slam titles?

    Oh yeah, QF streaks are important, but not WINNING SLAMS lol.

    Care to remind me, Zwhatever how old Federer is? Of course he has 17 slams. So he should.

    Federer is currently 31 with 17 slams.

    Nadal is currently 26 with 11 slams.

    When Federer was 26 he had 13 slams.

    There goes that argument.

    Problem is, Federer never dominated a slam to the degree Rafa has (7 RG in 8 attempts). It's going to take WAY LONGER for Rafa to decline enough at RG to lose. He's going to be winning it into his 30s. Whereas Federer decline badly at the US Open, and has been far more beatable at Wimbledon (including back-to-back QF exits in 2010/2011, and only ONE Wimbledon title in the last 3 years). Rafa will be racking up RG titles for as long as he wants to.

    Good ol NSK "Nadal will continue racking up those RG titles well into his mid 30s and 40s" again, eh?

    Why am I not surprised.

    ******* response:

    "Nadal will keep winning RG for years to come"

    26 years old, I doubt he will keep winning it when he gets to 30. So only 4 more grandslams if he can handle it.

    17 > 15 slams, if he is still playing. :)

    That's just NSKzilla's basic coping mechanism: "A thread about not-Rafa? And about some serious business, no less? Quick, let's derail it with meaningless :) RNadal :) future hypothetical records so I can bear to read it."

    2nd round is awful in one's peak years. It spelled the end for Sampras when he had the same result. I don't know what spacetime manifold you reside in, but being the most consistent player in grand slams ever isn't too bad.

    So sickening. Why threaten Fed or any tennis player? Doesn't make any sense how jacked up some people's mind are.

    The worst part is all the players are threatened because the would-be assassin knows Federer will become a hardened target and leave the other players as easier to get at.

    Thing is we didn't need this guy. Nadal & Djokovic already exterminated tennis the last 2 years.

    probably because Federer is famous and the guy wanted some attention.

    The ultimate punishment would be for the man to be tied to a pole, alone with Federer a racket and a cart of tennis balls.

    Leave the rest to your imagination.

    That would be a very dramatic final for Federer - dying to become immortal. Just imagine all those slam counts people would suggest he would have won.

    Always easy to say that in retrospect.

    If a Seles type incident happened at a Chinese tournament, the culprit would likely never see the light of day again.
    He would become tennis' Senna.

    I have seen more than one person threaten Nadal with bodily harm,wish injury on him,and wish him dead on here. I have also seen the same type of comments on other message boards as well; Fed's official message board included. Hopefully none of those nutters(and they know who they are)ever act out their comments.


    And hopefully noone hurts Fed. I doubt they will,but people can be crazy these days.
