    Just thought we should have an area in which we can consolidate all Rafa's complaints into the one thread.
    It's just that there are so many it's getting tough to keep track.

    It is getting pretty ridiculous. The guy never used to complain and now it never ends. It started once he began getting beat by Nole. It's like he is a grumpy old man.

    Yes, we should abolish all pro player discussion threads except this one.

    I don't hate him in the least, but I am bored witless with hearing about his issues.
    He should give it a rest for a while.

    Rafa just complained to the ATP that righties can have 2 handed backhands. He also complained about allowing those who are born naturally left-handed to play at all.

    Rafa is an annoying complainer. Nothing new here. This thread should get plenty of action considering Rafa's history.

    I beg to differ. These threads are actually useful as they help to identify closet Nadaltards, a few of which have already contributed ;)

    While I agree that Nadal does voice his opinions more than others, it would be nice if the trolls would make themselves useful for once and list chronologically (and post links to interviews, not Bozo articles) all the instances of Nadal 'complaining'.

    Seeing comments like 'he whines ALL the time, breakfast, lunch, dinner, while I am on the loo...' etc makes you pause and wonder whether it is just the length of each thread on him that makes people think he mopes, frets and gripes like a nag.

    lets start counting from this week.. his return.. Lets number the things so that we will have a final count in the end..

    I will start..

    1. His knees are "Still paining" and do not have the "energy" (so who's fault is it?? definitely not his.. oh yeah.. it is the ATP's fault.. next point)

    2. ATP does not care about players... football is not played on hard courts.. there should be no hard courts

    3. The 25 second rule will harm tennis audience.. (professional opinion on everything)

    4. Brazil open does not care for player's health.. extrapolating to ATP does not care again for players.. ( but still he is going to play that very 250 tournament in the middle of nowhere)

    Feel free to extend the list from here...

    OP meant NADAL's complaints, not your complaints.

    And we're not hating, we're just keeping it real. The dude has had 3 complaints since he returned a week ago. Do the math, he basically complains every other day.

    Nadal is the first player in tennis history to complain about clay, rules and hardcourts in the same calendar week. :p

    In the next few days, he has a chance to be the first player in tennis history to complain about clay, rules, hardcourts and schedule in the same calendar week. :p

    Vamos Rafa! :)

    Nadal complains about 25 sec limit because it's hard to fit all my OCDs in 25 sec, no?

    Best thread ever!!!! and pretty useful too, needless to say!

    I think it should be sticky, on the very top of all the sticky threads! Bamos!!!

    Also, it could be handy to write a list of all grievances of our darling Martyr Rafi - just to keep track of them.

    I remember the famous banana sabotage and the following drama :

    it was too hard to breathe!!!

    The next year, the very colour of Madrid's clay was too much for poor Rafi, he ******d to boycott the tournament if the blue stays (it won't. phew!!) :

    Playing with constant injuries: knee, foot, butt, etc... (remember he never loses unless hes injured)
    Unfair rules: 20-25 seconds between points, no coaching from the stands
    Unfair schedule of too many hardcourts
    Unfair court speeds: not every surface is slow yet
    Unfair drug test procedures: too many tests, has to be available at anytime
    ATP and ITF not caring about the players health and basically indirectly causing all of Rafa's injuries.

    Have Mercy..........

    All of this complaining is Rafa lashing out because he is frightened about his knee. The docs have have told him to go easy, but that is not his way.

    I still believe there is more to this story that they are not saying. He may be facing something he doesnt want to, if he continues to play this way.

    Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

    Breaking News from the Nadal camp: the indoor clay in Brazil is too slippery proving yet again the ATP is sabotaging the health of its players. In addition, the lines on the slippery Brazilian clay courts are cracking. But, Nadal's team is working with the tournament to see if something can be done to "fix" the situation.

    The guy is weird. Do you think he lines his drinks, silverware and plates up just so at dinner each evening?

    The only thing getting ridiculous is the haters' obsession with him.

    Get a life people, really.

    I'm curious to see if he still wants to bring up the 2 year rolling ranking system now that it no longer benefits him and actually makes it more difficult for him to climb back to the top.

    Rafa's the modern day Borg. When Borg couldn't win and remain at #1 anymore, all he did was ***** and moan until he retired.

    Even scarier is how similar their records are. Go look them up and you'll see how it's almost a mirror image.

    (although i'm not sure a single thread will be enough to contain his current whining eruption that seems even more intense than before !)

    for sure is not fair, no ?
    ... because sherpas madrileƱos like verdasco, for sure they are used to altitude, no ?

    A lot of people don't like Nadal because he's dominated Federer beating the guy 18 times and humilating him in numerous grand slam finals on three different surfaces.

    Nadal has done a lot of good for tennis making it more popular in the Spanish speaking world.
