is it alright?
Until his next loss its fine
It looks OK. Ever since the clay season began his serve started to come back slowely but surely. In the FO he served very well (his serve saved him many times from defeat) and at Wimbly 1st round his serve was on fire.
Yes, agree with this.
How long will Djokovic be mentally exhausted from his match against Nadal in Madrid?
Answer: Until his next win.
The same as Rafa's knees.
Fine until they loose.
federer is fine until he loses, then its either one of back,mono, face, groin, mirkas groin, etc.
I don't think Fed is that much of a cry baby like the non-"*******s" seem to attribute to him.
In 2008 in Australia he was recovering from mono. Now mind you when a teen gets it they often miss a semester of school or college. He did play so he was okay to play but he was not as prepared and the mental drop began. We shall see if Rafa has a similar reaction to his FO loss and withdraw from W.
Every tennis match is won or lost because one player won more sets than the other because the winner was able t keep the ball in play longer. That should be the standard answer to all losses and would keep a player from being labeled an excuse maker. I also hate hearing how someone played the match of his life blah blah blah.
None of the pros are that good that they can never lose. Maybe they should not lose but anything can and eventually will happen.
Yep..and he did not blame his loss at AO entirely on mono..he actually said that he has beaten many players even when he was ill but Novak just proved to be too strong for him that day.
Also Roger has been consistently talking about his back problems regardless of a win or a loss.
If Nadal can go on and on for years talking about his knees why cant Roger talk about an injury or illness if he had it?
Now to be on topic-He's said it has been better ever since the clay season started .I guess HC was proving hard on his body with the injury still in rehabilitation but his first serve percentage is better overall than it was and to me,that seems to be the prime indicator of a better back.
Exactly. He has occasional complaints, but he finishes his matches -- unlike a certain someone else who is now in contention for the career slam of quitting (Djokovic, with the AO, FO, and Wimby -- just needs the USO).
OK I usually hate these threads, but this was just plain funny.
I don't buy it. Federer in his infinite arrogance would never say anything positive about anyone...
considering he's won teh frnch open, his back is just fine. however, if he makes it to the wimbledon semis, and loses, his back would have been the issue--even if he got as far as the semis. there's something about ailments that strike in the semis.
Federer never had a back problem. It was a Nadal, Murray, and Simon problem.
He said it to Courier on record..If I find the video I'll post it.I dont care whether you buy it or not.
I guess Nadal has a Soderling problem then :lol:
you mean he lied???
good thing nadal never does that:roll:
Course not. You just happen to be both Federer's chiropractor and Nadal's doctor at the same time.
^^^ Yeah that explains the Paris, Madrid and TMC (3rd set getting a treatment) lost.
I was quoting NF.
Roger's back will flare up the next time he loses.
Much like Rafa's knees and Djokovic's throat, no?
I can't remember the last time Rafa made any excuse when he lost, not even at RG when Soderling took him out. And now that it's been confirmed that Nadal's parents have separated he still won't make any excuses.
Personal woes affecting Rafa?
Nadal's media manager, Benito Perez-Barbadillo, returned an e-mail with this spare answer:
"We do not comment on personal issues for Rafa. We never did, and we are not going to at this moment."
"There are no excuses whatsoever for his defeat at Roland Garros," Perez-Barbadillo noted later. "He said that clearly."
Roger, meanwhile, can't remind people enough times how he was suffering with mono/food poisoning/back/etc.
Federer on Murray:
"I don't want to make excuses but he played me at a time when I had back problems which made it hard for me to call on my best performance level."
As for Novak, well that's our Djoker. What a kidder.
So he had a blake problem as well since he withdrew from paris masters before the match against blake, correct ?
Confirmed ?? Do you have any links ? I have only heard rumours about it
Well, he almost did a few years ago against Monfils at the US Open. He had trouble breathing and called numerous medical time-outs and delayed the match over and over until he could recover from the tough, long games and he eventually won the match 7-5 in the 5th set. I think this was the match where the criticism of Djokovic's gamesmanship and abuse of timeouts began.
Yeah, and Nadal never won Wimbledon.
You see, I can make up crap, too. :roll:
When did Federer ever make excuses? He published on his website that his back was still hurting days after the AO loss. He didn't blame his loss on AO.
As for the French Open loss, it sounds like Nadal did plenty of excuse work there, claiming that he played short and played bad and that's why Soderling won.
No, no. What he said was that his problem with Nadal, Murray and Simon was back
He claimed that he had to play Murray and Nadal in back to back tournaments.
damn even a thread like this turns into "lets rip athletes" thread :ROLL:
Nope. Until he wins another slam. Should be quite a while
Or never ,,,
Those are the facts! Roger as a player amazing, Roger as a person sucks @$$.
I was joking...
It's true when Roger wins, it's his opponents are always clowns. When he loses, it's always because he's injured, sick, whatever.
And Nadal doesn't have a knee problem. He just had a Federer and Soderling problem that was so bad that he decided to skip the entire grass court season...
Sounds just as stupid the other way around don't you think?
It's conventional logic that Roger always loses straight up, but Nadal always is injured/tired/personal problems/whatever...
Until he starts serving at 30-40% it's fine.
Don't know. But my back's been hurting lately and my whole game is in the toilet as a result. It's shocking that he played through whatever he had.
\you forgot blisters. That's why he lost to Safin in the AO semi's in 05 RF said.
