    I must admit, AO is getting boring to speak of. Can't wait for Roland Garros/Wimbledon, hardcourts are boring......

    you realize that if Nadal doesn't win the Australian Open you'll look like an idiot? All this talk about 6 Slams in a row, Calendar Slam, non-calendar Slam, history and stuff will burst like a bubble

    If they ever tell my story, let them say I walked with giants.
    Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die.
    Let them say I lived in the time of RITG, greatest of Rafa's fans.
    Let them say I lived in the time of suresh, tamer of *******s extraordinare.
    Let them say I lived in the time of Nasal_Slam_king, great slayer of Federer fans.

    :D

    Nadal has never dominated the field. 9 hard court tournaments in the last 7 years in a hard court era, I beg your pardon. He's hardly dominating grass too. Federer losing a set on any fast court Slam a couple years ago was a sensation, Nadal played 2 5-setters in this year's Wimbledon alone against whom? Peztschner and Haase?

    Federer at his best was miles ahead of the field on hard and grass courts and he was second best on clay for years only behind Nadal.
    Nadal + clay were probably the only mix in which Federer could lose (and it had to be really slow clay like Monte Carlo or the French Open cause even in Hamburg/current Madrid where the clay is faster they have 2 matches won each)

    I think NSK might just be having a little fun with the OTT declarations. Or is that just being totally naive?

    It's because this thread is somewhat of a 'safehouse' for 'tards
    They can let out all there inner '****
    Without the fear of being banned and sent into Fed despair.

    These are the facts of life my friend.

    Really? Probably because to Sharapova, Nadal is like that guy in your high school class that you know has a crush on you, but you don't look at him the same way because you go for guys a few grades older or whatever. Probably similar type of scenario.

    I'll post on fridge, thank you that is the only poem I've ever liked :shock:

    I don't have any heroes, I'm already ranked higher in history than Rafa so it's not possible for me to hero-worship.

    I said "they probably sense they won't ever meet a person higher up in history than he is headed for", they probably won't meet me. But for sure Rafa is ranked higher than me on the tennis court it's not my specialty (although I can play darn well).

    I only record the Grand Slam Final but at this AO I'll record the final game of each match before the Final. Missed it today because of the 6-0 5-0 completion, but I'll get that Final game in the replay.

    No, she's not his type at all (too big) but the photo you posted is super cool. Thanks a lot. OTOH, Camilla Belle (Pova's actress good friend), seems to like Rafa a lot. Remember the photos of her and Rafa at that party a while ago?

    He does have an aura, definitely, and most definitely he looks nothing like my plumber. It seems I should switch to yours. You have his phone number?

    It's OK Meg. It's what Rafa wants. He doesn't like playing first (He said so before)

    He's dominating the field AND Federer, much better. Fed has never dominated Nadal and I bet he never will. He's found his master and he's bowed down. :twisted:

    Nadal has never dominated the field as much as Federer NOR did he Federer. Period.
