    no wonder, it takes him one minute to remember how to serve each time in his service games :D

    I wonder if uncle Toni played video tapes of Borg when Nadal was little to program him to be the next clay GOAT

    He did but nobody realized somebody accidentally pushed the slow motion button when Borg was preparing to serve.

    Maybe Federer should start watching his own tapes of when he was "in his prime".

    LOLLLLL. Senti, that's harsh.

    It makes sense that he should watch his own matches. Plus, he's the best clay courter on tour right now, and perhaps of all time. No point fixing something that ain't broken!

    Woah. Clay is called earth/soil in Spanish? I didn't know that.

    Yes, "tierra" is short for "tierra batida". You can also say "polvo de ladrillo" or "arcilla".
