    No it's not. You're asserting that these two going around tanking matches in order not to give each other psychological advantage. I can't see any evidence of this speculation in either their words or deeds. The contrary appears more to be true and that is that winning against each other is more satisfying than winning against anyone else in whatever real tournament that they play.

    One is a virus the other is a symptom. Fever is not just a symptom of the flu but other illnesses as well. Saying you have a fever does not necessarily mean that you have the flu. I've only heard Nadal say he has a fever.

    Just because YOU can't see it, does not mean it's not there. 'Appears' is the keyword. Appearances can be deceiving.

    Sounds like Rafa is in great physical condition but that his breathing is effected if the point is long (and if he's pushed around like a yo yo by Davy) and the coughing starts. So the cough has to go away for him to be comfortable playing the long points.

    Lol. I will have to decide between a watch and a house. :)

    I think Nadal might be in the airport lounge.

    Regarding the picture, his status was updated via an iPhone, no more crackberry? Or maybe it belongs to the person who does his updates for him?

    Me either :( Seems like his fam has been following him everywhere. I bet she gave him the cold. If she hadn't taken his jacket maybe he would have been warm and not fallen sick. :evil: :mrgreen:

    Exactly, she brings him nothing but misfortune. Maybe that's what she was talking to fed about. together they're plotting against rafa

    Funny, that is what we established about Stan Wawrinka's ex-Wife.

    :shock: Someone mentioned how Fed was totally fixing his hair while talking to her. Hmm, no Mirka and Xisca whose needs a sick Rafa cannot fulfill :twisted:

    I want more than one phone :(

    When isn't Federer fixing his hair? He does it constantly and obsessively.

    Yeah I noticed the hair fixing and the intense concentration while they were talking and I was like mm roger macking on Rafa's girl won't work, if anything it will **** him off and we all know what happens when Rafa is pissed :p

    cc0509, yes fed always fixes his hair but that there something extra lol

    fedace "I will bet you that Mirka lets Roger have some fun now and then....they are pretty liberal over there in Swiss."

    I wouldn't be surprised.

    Babbette already stated but article:

    http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-new...ck-and-heads-to-melbourne-20110110-19k2w.html

    The result saw Federer firm into favouritism to lift the trophy in Melbourne but many still see Nadal as the man to beat.

    Sorry NSK :p

    Hey, have they ever made a documentary about Nadal? Like the "spirit of a champion" series they did for Federer?

    They tried to do one but they failed. Unfortunately it's still going on...

    And yes, I am merely trying to troll a little bit, I'm not serious. :twisted: I don't think Nadal would ever...

    I wouldn't really put the Daily mail or the Sun in that category of 'Newspapers'. I'd say its closer to waste paper, or maybe even tissue paper, but technically since they put a line on page 17 about 'Thems floods in Oztralia', they can be classified as news. This is obviously ignoring the front page exclusives on why Kerry Katona had to have brain surgery because she thought aliens were burrowing inside her, or how Jordan lost ten stone through a breast reduction. Or the Mail's rants on why everyone is being killed by everything, and we should just lock ourselves inside the basement, so as to best avoid the poisons of the outside world with their 4x4s and global warming. But they can sometimes be relevant, and this was apparent during the recent elections. The Sun in particular, ran some very unbiased, neutral and beautifully written pieces throughout the campaigns. Just take a look:

    How on earth is this "Mission Accomplished"? And many already thought fed was favourite for the AO back at the WTF. It doesn't make it better if rafa is underdog, in fact I'm pretty sure many had him as favourite for Wimby '08/joint for '10 and USO '10, and he still won there, so it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    It doesn't make a difference to Rafa, but it's better in the 'legend' of the story that he be underdog. It just reads better. Federer had not been the favorite until now actually, Rafa was the betting favorite until now.

    This is actually true, he was a close second tho. I haven't seen the latest odds, so i don't know how much has changed.

    Lol, So randomly put together that article. Once min she says she wants to meet Rafa then she talks about dating. As if Rafa would fall into her arms if she was ready. :lol: Even tho I throughly dislike her I certainly pick Princess X over this chick.

    Yeah the story just reads better when Federer is the favorite. Be awesome if Rafa won his 4th straight slam while Federer was the favorite. I think if they both make the AO Final the odds will have Federer as the favorite.

    I think it's perfect if Fed is the favorite, takes a bit of pressure off Rafa's shoulders

    Yeah, if Rafa is even aware of the media, not sure, but yeah if Rafa is aware of the media then its good that Federer be favorite. At some point there will probably be a courtside interview hyping up the 4 slam streak etc., so be good if Federer is favorite to subside that talk. It would be amazing if Rafa entered the AO Final as the underdog and then 4 hours later holds all 4 slams :shock:
