    I already posted this in the Murray thread but I don't think many people have read it.
    Some interesting questions :)

    If only Murray could take Rafa to a desert island for a year AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, even RIGHT NOW, that would be great.

    Then he could have picked Sharapova.

    Pretty sure he'd look like *** if he publicly said he'd pick a female tennis player, since he already has a girlfriend.

    After drawing each other 16/19 times in slam draws, it is but natural that they get along so well. Shame that Fed-Djok can't emulate their example.

    It makes sense that he would want to do that. Nadal leads the slam H2H with Murray 6-2, having won 4 of their previous encounters. He would want to learn more about his opponent.

    screaming unnecessarily when Federer was already conceding the point and of course " the king is dead" drama. Don't even get me started on Novak's dad giving Federer a thumbs down as he walked off the court.

    Well In monte Carlo semis 2008 djokovic hit a forehand long but it caught the line and Nole's parents started yelling behind fed and he told them to keep quiet. Djokovic is really cool guy but his parents are such idiots and there do annoying!! But fed and djoko are pretty cool there not best buddies but there still friends

    I think someone on this forum said that some fans invented that story and it wasn't true.

    Does Federer have the right to attack the crowd? Federer comes across as an irreverent bully. Hope Djokovic stomps him into the ground :D

    He revealed that Rafael Nadal, resting his injured knees in Mallorca, had been in touch. "He messaged me after the match and said, 'Just enjoy it, I'm very happy for you. You deserved it.' That means a lot to me. I got a lot of congratulations from a lot of people but, when you get it from someone you competing against and he's one of the best players ever, it means a little bit more."

    Oh, it's definitely true, Djokovic's mother said it when interviewed live on TV a few minutes after the match ("The king is dead, long live the king").

    That was in Jan '08, of course, so it looks like the dead king has still got a bit of bounce... ;)

    Apologize? Roger did what Novak couldn't tell his parents, to shut up. I think Novak even whispered a thank you to Roger:)

    No kidding. Obviously the whole Djokovic team all have the same delusional ideas about Novaks grandeur. His father went on the same kind of rant during the rain delay at the French Open, telling an interviewer that Novak was going to win and prove that he was the best player and that Novak was going to be proclaimed the best tennis player in history. The interviewer was a little taken aback by that and asked him if best in all of history was really what he meant and Pop said oh yes, for sure, Novak is the best ever. Apparently Pops was half crocked as he had been sitting there swigging champagne during the rain delay. So classy those Djokovic's. :???:

    It's called belief, not delusions of grandeur.

    And if you yourself say Pops was soaked, then why pay attention to what he said. :):twisted:

    I think a trip to Mars would be better, desert islands are so last-century, and these 2 can afford a ticket. Mars is made of red clay so Rafa will be delighted.

    It's not belief to say that Cvac will be better than Fed in a few years,and also the best clay court player in a few years time as well. He sounded like an idiot. His entire team/family are big mouthed big talkers,and I can say that it has been extremely pleasing to see them get put in their place this year. The seal clapping girlfriend included.

    "Put in their place" :shock:??? He won AO and almost won USO were it not for that gentle breeze that wafted over from Scotland across the Atlantic messing with his laser precision shots.

    He's almost a shoe-in (sp?) for the #1 and the family will very much be in your face come January :D
    "Clapping gf included".

    Lol. Mars' gravity is also weaker so he would have more net clearance. ;)

    Low grav means less stress on knees (and leg muscles). He'll finally know what it is to float like Federer :evil: :)
