The hate seems to make Nadal just fight harder.

    Or it could be the more simple reason :

    Nadal keeps beating Federer and you guys don't like that.

    Nice stats. BTW if Federer wins this US Open, Roger will have 6 USO titles which would equal Nadal's TOTAL number of GS titles.

    Wait...What exactly has Nadal won lately? He won Rome...That was in April. He lost in Madrid, FO, skipped his two grass events and then lost in Montreal and Cincy.

    I also think that there is very little hatred of Nadal...That's a strong word. Crowds tend to get behind underdogs, hence the rooting against Nadal and the Williams'. For some reason Federer is well liked and cheered for by crowds everywhere...It must be because he's such an awful, arrogant, lucky guy who is talentless and can't beat any of the top players.

    I think you have it wrong:

    Nadal 6 Federer 15

    Oversimplifications of arguments are fun!

    There is no reason for any ripping on Federer or Nadal.
    Those two are both class acts and good for the sport

    Wasn't defining what a man is. Was drawing a parallel between Rafa and Martina.

    Those second rate players were good enough to defeat Nadal (Blake, Youzhny, Gonzales, Ferrer, Soderling). Verdasco should also be on that list, too bad he decided to double-doublefault.

    Hi mr beck. I would like to welcome you to the boards. Also i would like to commend your very interesting thread.
    There is indeed a lot of hate for rafa. Its a sad reflection on fed fans, particularly the ones jumping on the libelous doping smear campaign.
    To quote the song and film... I guess you could say that fed knows all there is to know about the crying game.

    I didn't see any Nadal hate. People just want to see a good match.

    Nadal got booed off when lost to Soderling, and also got booed when he beat Federer in one of the finals. Its a disgrace, Nadal deserves more respect than that.

    I was saying that i don't think any crowd would favor Nadal over Monfils becuase of race.

    I think the US Open crowds generally like Nadal. I know I do, and am praying for a Fed-Nadal final. Any other finalist will be beaten by Fed, except for maybe Del Potro.

    Oops looks like Mr.Troll is banned already.

    No one hates Nadal it is just typical crowd cheering for underdog. After the first set and midway through the second it was obvious Monfils was spent and Nadal was running with it. The crows just was hoping they could get Monfils back in it. It worked for a few points but never long enough to make any real difference.

    gj will be back on Friday night when the mods may be off, take advantage on the weekend and get banned again on Monday. Sad, and a bit funny.

    Well i saw the after tournament interview he gave on court and I thought there were loads of people cheering for him and one guy came up and gave him a kiss!
    What I liked about that interview was the fact that he was surprised with his performance and delighted that he had won. He doesn't take much for granted these days

    It's also funny to see him vehemently deny it when it's clear as day.
