    Both Roger and Rafa will retire by end of 2016 with Fed retiring with 18 GS while Rafa with 16 GS.
    Novak will have 12 GS and Andy with 5 by then.

    I think Roger will retire before 2016 (except if he accepts to lose in all Grand Slams before the quarter finals. :lol:

    Rosol. Don't forget Rosol.


    That's too much. Won't happen. 13 tops.

    The same as what? He's playing tennis. You were convinced he would never play again. He's playing and winning and competing.

    I guess you missed the last match. Serving for a set at 6-5 is the literal definition of having at least the set on your racquet. Nadal didn't execute and Nole did. Maybe it will be different next time.

    Keep trolling. Obviously, disparaging Nadal on this forum does something for you emotionally and psychologically. It scratches some deep psychic itch. Who am I to ask someone to stop doing something that obviously feels so good. However, I'm more and more convinced that you're not actually even watching these Nole/Rafa encounters. It's the only logical conclusion one can make it you think Nole won any of those eight matches "in his sleep." All of them were tightly contested and could have gone either way; a few were absolute knock-down drag-out wars that literally hinged on one or two points (Miami 2011, AO 2012). Wimbledon might have been the only one that had one-way traffic in the entire bunch.

    I'm not trolling. And you need to stop playing armchair shrink, dude. You honestly do not know a thing about me, and coming from a middle aged man who said Nadal's losses depress you, maybe you are the one who needs to see a shrink.

    I also think Cvac beats Nadal easily more often than not. He always controls their matches and they are always on his racket. If Cvac plays at 50% he wins.

    You're right. I don't know a thing about you. In fact, you're probably a wonderful person. But your posts, almost all of them, are pathetic and lame. I do think you're trolling and mucking up these boards, flaming on in order to antagonize people and get attention. It's a free country. You're allowed to write whatever your want, and I'm allowed to respond to you however I see fit as long as I'm not profane or cruel. You know where the ignore button is.

    Then don't read them.

    Wrong.

    Attempting to psycho analyze a stranger on a tennis forum isn't profane or cruel? How many times have you insulted me with your armchair psycho babble on here in the past week alone? How many other people on here have followed your lead after you've insulted me yet again with your armchair psycho babble, causing all of you to gang up on me like a bunch of playground bullies? I think you, and several others on here who know who they are, simply need to get over yourselves. I'm not the one starting entire threads about how Nadal's losses depress me to the point of where I can't function. Giving mental health advice really isn't something you should be doing given the circumstances.

    And you know where the ignore button is, too.

    No one's "ganging" up on you. You keep posting asinine comments and people will keep responding to your asinine comments. Are we no longer allowed to comment on what you write because it might hurt your feelings? Do you get a free ride to write whatever you want because you might get sad if we comment on it. I've posted lots of stupid things on these boards and been taken to the woodshed, so to speak, for saying such. There are actually quite a few articulate, interesting posters on this forum. I won't put forth anymore "psycho babble" as you say, but if you keep posting stupid, nonsensical things about Nadal, don't cry when you receive a volley of responses.

    This is what I'm seeing too. I don't see anything wrong with his game, he just looks a bit disinterested right now.

    Well it has been less than a year since he won his last.

    Federer has always said he was planning to play for years ahead.

    Thing is he loves to hit a fuzzy ball over the net.
