What was up with that? Did he go watch Federer at all?
Praying for Berdych to beat Nadal?
I don't know, I had my suspicions for sure LOL. He did seem to be into the match a lot though, and was clapping and cheering for Nadal a lot. Maybe he secretly likes Nadal more?
He was trolling Nadal
maybe he was coaching berdych the volleys.
He did keep saying; "Let's go!" but really that is only coaching if in Spanish LOL
Did you have a secret Rodcam installed with direct connection to your house lolvile?
or are you just talking out of your bum again?
I love it.
Rod Laver is Rafa's fan.
Laver saw Rafa's picture and thought it was the Melbourne zoo.
Laver is doing an interview together with Federer right now.
Is this going to be after the Murray match? On TV or at the arena?
Its on now, ESPN booth outside.
Rafa walks in and says " Hey Royer, who the old guy next to you"?
Thanks Rommil. Watched it on TV.
No problem............AO this year has a lot of botched up line calls but great interviews the last few days.
Yeah I really enjoyed the Lendl interview. Who else was on?
Fed...........a little bit before Lendl.
Oh yeah, I forgot I watched that one as well. That was a good interview.
Oh, look, judging by the title a LOLville thread that isn't about Fed, a refreshing change...
...sorry, my bad.
Oh no doubt Laver likes Nadal more as evidenced by all this which makes his open era ranking of players in which he puts guys like Mcenroe, Sampras, Borg and gasp Federer ahead of Nadal all the more objective and carries a lot more weight.
Laver is probably not a Nadal fan (I remember something controversial Laver said about Nadal that people considered offensive. I can't remember what it was exactly). Laver knows Nadal is almost certainly going to beat Federer and was watching in the hope that Berdych would take him down. Laver left the court when Nadal got on top.
Laver was watching Nadal because he knew it was his last chance to see him win a match this tournament.
Seriously? That is pretty lame, must have some hate in anger then?
Yeah I noticed that! Very astute observation fellow TT'er! He likes Nadal so much that he put him at #6 in his top 10 list and federer at first too!
Maybe he was scouting for Rogi? Looking for something that might help him win. Probably not, but you never know...
It isn't weird at all, Laver is just a stand-up old school kind of aguy, when faced with such a serious task(ranking tennis greats) he doesn't let his personal bias(obviously he likes Rafa) get in the way of an objective analysis.
If he says Rafa is #6, you better believe it.
Who knows, they seem to be really good friends.
I saw the footage this week of Nadal getting his phone out and taking a picture of himself with Laver. It's as if they've never met.... Why would that be? I've seen Laver with Federer frequently. I doubt Laver's sincerity toward Rafa.
Do you know they have never previously met, or are you just talking out of your arse?
Did you notice how Rafa gave his own phone to a friend to take his own pics of him with The Rocket.
Does he do that with just anyone?
I think I saw Laver attending the Wimbledon final yesterday.
He also had some nice words to say about Fed recently:
“Murray gets in a position where he’s maybe up a break or in a position to win a game, and he just plays it back,” added the great Australian.
“That’s when you put your foot down and make sure you win that point so you get either two breaks or you get a break back."
Shove it Rod! He praises nadal and federer a lot by why is he so mean when it comes to Murray?
