    eheheheee:)

    Frustration coming out of Nadalite *** like fart. WTF is now holiday exo because their hero cant win it even if he sweats his butt out. The "problem solver" cant figure it out and the same guy who took 3 majors off his resume has beaten him twice in a row. Nadal was running like a dog left and right to hand Djoker the ball just for another blow for the whole 90 minutes, I can understand how much pain that must have cause you.

    Has Nadal ever had a good indoor year?

    Indoors is to Nadal what clay is to Sampras.

    Even at the slams....AO roof went up he lost.

    Against Rosol roof went up he Lost.

    Nadal has never been a good indoor player.

    There's Dragonblaze and Nitish, those two come to mind instantly.

    There's a lot of fans that I'm not sure who they're a fan of.

    I'm not surprised to see this. That's pretty much what I thought about you as a poster.

    You're fair to all sides.

    I think that's cool.

    There's a ton of players that I like, but only one that I love and I'm sure everyone knows who that is. I can't afford to invest in too many players because it would be emotionally draining.

    I like Murray a lot, always did. I just love his sense of humor. And I would want him to win because he struggled with the injury all year and lost time with the surgery. I love his game too.

    So, yeah, he's my #2 and then everyone else is equal.

    Another person I like is Mathieu. Just something about him.

    Exactly, and at 17, new to the tour he was beating Fed. I think that's more devastating.

    I don't know the future. I tend to stay in the present.

    That's very cool. I like Murray as well, I feel that sometimes he gets less respect than he deserves since he's constantly overshadowed by Fedalovic. I don't think there is a player that I actually dislike though. I think I may have disliked Rusedski way back when.

    Right on point: the Federer fringe is isn full desperation mode, hence trying to elevate the WTF to the level of a major (laugh inducing at best), in some obvious attempt to tear down Nadal--who had the best year--by far--of all ATP players. Their false "god" Federer is fading, so they have to clamp down on the tit of Djokovic, in the hope that he will be the one to stop Nadal. The Federer fringe wished for that all year at the majors, and it failed them at the FO & USO.

    Sad little group.

    He was nowhere, as Djokovic is utterly inferior (in too many ways to list) to Nadal at the most important events.

    Nadal is Djokovic's master.

    I feel the same way. Dislike is as far as it goes. Hating anyone is sick! I don't like Federer much, but I respect what he's done in the game and have softened towards him more as he ages, so the only one I kind of really don't like is Roddick.

    There is no sadness till Nadal gets 18. Till then it is paradise.

    Of course , whatever Nadal gets has to be shared with Toni.

    You made an assbrained prediction based on your hatred of Nadal. It--like your every thought--failed you. To reiterate, if you were even aware of the sport (other than fan sites dedicated to Federer), you would not make such a foolish, unfounded prediction, when Nadal's career has been one of proving the uninformed wrong on at non-FO majors--the very thing you said he would not do this year.

    clay warrior is a killer. he will use this loss to fuel his unremitting thirst to kill again.

    I can assure you that he will use this loss only to motivate himself further.

    he needed this loss far more than he needed to win today.

    True. They have nothing else. Federer and Djokovic failed them as "Nadal killers" at the majors, while Nadal's 2013 is a matter of record--one driving them to fits every day, every night. The only reason they attempt to turn the WTF into something it is not: a major.

    Next, expect one of the usual suspects to post some trivia list that has become comedy, thanks to the desperate way it is used.

    Rafa beat Djoker where it mattered, in 2 slams this year and on Djoker's so called best surface, in Montreal and the USO.

    Comparing the WTF to a major is like comparing apples to oranges. Even the ATP agrees with this sentiment and allocates less points for winning the WTF. It's the halfwit mentality of certain fans that post statements littered with misinformation.

    Dont be upset with today's loss. Nadal still has a couple of years to try. There is a reason why players call it the best of the best and the ultimate tournament.

    Glad to see Nadal can finally play a full year. Earlier you used to say his year ends at the FO/WO.

    He also lets the little ones beat him at the WO :D :D

    here is what is likely to happen in 2014:

    nadal will capture the first 2 slams and then fade a little bit.

    I don't see him doing well at Wimbledon.

    he will then recharge his batteries and try to make a solid run at flushing meadows.

    bottom line: he is getting 2 slams and may even take the 3rd.

    I'm not upset.

    Nadal took 2 majors and a Masters from Djokovic this year.

    Come on now, which would you want?

    If I was upset I wouldn't have come on the board. I would've disappeared like so many fans did after Rafa won the USO.

    It was like crickets in here.

    They only started coming back when Rafa lost that 500.

    Don't think I get down in my life over someone else's tennis results.

    I came online to laugh at the predictable behavior of certain fanboys and I have been ROFLing all evening.

    Since 2011, Nadal has beaten Djokovic 6 times, 4 times on clay and twice on HC (2012 MC, 2012 Rome, 2012 FO, 2013 FO, 2013 Montreal and 2013 USO).
     
  35. Uhhh...

    Nadal beat Djokovic three times.

    Roland Garros. Montreal. US Open.

    2 slams, 1 master.

    Djokovic beat Nadal three times.

    Monte Carlo. Beijing. London.

    2 masters, 1 500.

    There is a clear, clear difference here as to whose wins were much bigger and more important.

    And it wasn't Djokovic.

    This also wasn't Nadal's best year. At least not how he played.

    Nadal came back from 7 months out with injury, only played 3 slams, went out in the 1st round at Wimbledon and still finished the year as #1.

    Epic.

    Rafa rached final for second time... No need to think novak is the best player ever... He has only won 1 GS in each of last two years...
    Rafa has never been good in fall season, and with no Andy there...

    According to the ATP, Nadal was the best player of 2013. They actually presented him with a trophy for that.

    Sour grapes will change nothing.

    If he can't beat Djoker in his BEST YEAR EVER

    If Djoker can't finish the year ranked above Rafa when Rafa came back from injury and didn't even play the complete season, he should be embarrassed.

    Rafa finished the season with more than twice as many points as Federer and more points than Federer and the #3 added together.

    You think I'm a Federer fan because I say he is the GOAT. That makes you a very shortsighted man.
    Your fancy English words can't hide the fact that you lack knowledge about tennis and that you lack brains, hence you never make sense at all.

    The fact that you use red letter makes you look desperate.

    The ranking system is a joke, Nadal gained so many points because he didn't have to defend points in the second half of the year. So if you say Joker should be embarrassed after the amazing season he has so far (with a chance to win the Davis cup,as well), I think you're the one who should be embarrassed for saying something so plain stupid.

    Look at all those points Nadal has to defend next year, it will be impossible for that talentless grinder. His days are over, the sooner you little fanboys realize this, the less you will cry yourself a sleep at night.

    Fine, but when Novak (who I am a fan of mind you) doesn't win RG, and Rafa gets yet another will you kindly insert foot in mouth and be brave enough to post you were full of crap? I doubt it, TT posters are notorious for back tracking and never owning up to anything!

    Nadal lacks belief indoors. He played well, but I don't think he ever truly believed he could beat Djokovic there.

    At Y/E, it's irrelevant how many points you had to defend.

    No I'm not desperate, I'm just exasperated at the blindness of people who can't see the wood for the trees.
