Everytime there´s a thread about Nadal or Federer, some *******s have to bring up somemething about the US open. It´s like the holy grail, i mean, it´s the main argument to put Nadal down. AO is also HC, maybe slower, but who gives a damn? US open is also the only GS that forces players to play semis on saturday and final on sunday. 2 five setters in a row?? Some years ago, Fedtars used to say that Nadal was only a clay-courts wonder. Then Nadal reached 2 WB finals and beat federer in 2008. Then , they said that he was also good on grass. fair enough, but he would be destroyed by Fed on Hard courts. So Nadal beat Verdasco at the AO after 5 hours and hardly getting any rest, he beat Federer. They say that AO is slower HC, but Nadal also won the olympics on fast HC. At that point, *******s had to come up with something else. Oh yeah, The US open thing. It seems like the last shelter for *******s, the holy grail. what will thay come up with when Nadal wins the US open?
