    what was the purpose of this - nadal fans aren't glory hunters as they don't root for federer - the player with the most GS's

    not a cool thread, not cool at all

    So would Nadal have as many fans of he hadn't won 6 Grand Salms?

    Would you be a nadal fan if he had 0 Grand Slams at this stage?

    be honest and don't deny the truth...

    I actually used to hate him between 2004 and 2005. Around 2006, with his Wimby run, he won me over :)

    Fed, on the other hand, never won me over.
