    Hahahaa,That's huge,I don't think I can eat it all at once.I don't remember ever eating a burger with bacon being stuffed in it.

    I am more fond of little chicken burgers that you get at Mcdonalds..I like those crispy and mildly salted French Fries.

    If Rafa were as resilient as you making new accounts quickly after being banned, Nadal wouldn't be out as long:)

    You always have to read between the lines in these interviews from Fred.

    See? Looks like he's being friendly and concerned about Rafa, but pointing the obvious that Rafa's injury excuses are over-exaggerated and fake. :)


    Of course Fed wants him to be in the USO, once he draws him in his half he'll get his dream joke draw to the final.

    I agree, this Federer person is soooo arrogant.

    He is bragging about his ability to write ( Nadal can only Etch a Sketch the number 11)

    Also, he is taunting Nadal's inability to bounce back from crushing defeats which even Federer went through from Nadal. Yet Roger comes back and fights again where as Rafa hides for weeks and weeks, galivanting in the company of other people's little children.

    Come back Rafa, show us the steely determination you are supposed to be exhibiting:)

    Nadal bounced back from 7 losses in a row to Djokovic, so it's ridiculous to question Nadal's ability to respond to defeats.

    Based on Mathilde's latest post today, Nadal doesn't seem ready with his knee and didn't practice much today. So if Rafa pulled out what is the last day for him to submit his withdrawal without a LL taking his place.

    If Nadal is out, nothing can stop Donald Young.

    Nadal will romp the US Open easily because sureshs said so.

    That is because there is no knee issue. It was an excuse for the early loss at Wimbledon after cleaning up the clay season yet again

    That photoshopped photo with the typewriter and cat of Federer is actually a photo of a very young Marlon Brando back in the 1950's.

    I don't think he lost at wimbledon because of his knees, but is it plausible that he then skips 2 HC masters events if he is fine? And right before the US Open? :confused:

    Nadal more talented than Federer? You really believe that?

    The only reason Nadal ever beat Federer is that he caught Fed on the downslide. Nadal, who I do like, is nothing more than a baseliner getting by on others mistakes. Even Nadal says Federer is better, even now!

    It might interest you guys that I have spent SO MUCH time away from tennis, that 3-4 months ago as I started training my 11 year old son, I started learning about what racquets we use today, what players, strings, it's all new to me. Federer is like the Ali of Tennis, it's not just how great he is, but how good it looks, so I'm a fan!

    It seems everyone today is a baseliner. I have started my son on a old wood 75 inch head. The result is that he's learned shot placement, footwork, arm strength, etc. Now he uses a PS BLX 90, and can really play. He just beat this 11 year old USTA championship winner.

    The game certainly has changed, I don't like the baseliners, seem like they don't really play, seems like they just sit back, hit it as hard as possible without aiming, and hope for the other guy to make a mistake. (No offense to any baseliners), I'm just saying the game has changed.

    Anyways, cool to be here, seems every night I'm looking up something tennis, I'm going to compete again as soon as I can get in shape and shake off what, 4 different injuries so far! I've spent the last 3 months on pain pills!

    So I guess Fed was on the downslide of his career at 22 years old in 2004. :lol: Some of you Fedite's are simply pathetic in your attempts to explain away the h2h between Nadal and Federer. This "downslide" excuse is by far one of the worst.

    I was merely quoting the greats such as sureshs. How dare I say anything contrary to what the inventor of the Real Slam says.:)

    Murray winning the upcoming US Open ... what will that signify ??? ... the end of the glorious Nadal era -- surely that's what Fred is really worried about. He's worried that the blame for the long-awaited Murray Era will fall squarely on his shoulder. First he lets Djokovic get through to USO finals, and we see Joker 2.0 2011 Edition. Unbeatable.

    Now he let's Muzza through in the Mulympics (or Murrympics), heralding the Muzzera.

    EDIT: Mick, have you check the FYB website (fuzzy yellow balls).

    Am I wrong when I notice that Fed and Nadal seem to respect each other more than fans of one player respecting the other player??

    They probably don't downplay their achievements to each other, either.

    Supposedly Fed wrote Nads to make sure he was okay, and then after hearing about his withdrawal he sent a singing telegram to express his sincerest apologies.

    Most people that are older than 16 refer to e-mail, texting, etc as writing.

    My dear Rommil,
    Not to 'pick', but quadrupeds may be said to have four legs, but they don't have four knees. The front joints are wrist joints. So Rafa;s knees will actually get half the weight if he runs like a gazelle :D Rafa will have a hard time looking for new excuses to avoid Noel and Andy on non-clay (red only) courts :D Maybe chronic carpal tunnel sydrome :)

    Cheers, Senti.
