    Nadal stated

    Direct link: http://www.madrid-open.com/site/news/6/3331

    So...why are most of the most vocal Nadal fanatics saying he was "tired" and "washed up". Are you seriously stating that Nadal has no fitness whatsoever?

    lol.

    Dude, that's Nadal being modest, etc etc etc. BTW, he never lies either.

    Off course Nadal is not going to say anything about being tired. What did you think he was going to say?

    I wanted Nadal to win, but I watched the game and I don't think fatigue had anyting to do wit it.

    UNLESS YOU WANT MEH TO SAY "AHHHHHH NADAL ID WASHED UP ASMD<ASMDFLMSDLFM, HE NEBBER LOSES IF HE NOT WAHED UP AND TIRED".

    ha.

    We all know that Nadal is the biggest ******* of them all.

    Irrelevant, this is.

  7. From espn.com:

    "The second-ranked Swiss broke a sluggish Nadal once in both sets before firing his sixth ace of the match to claim his 15th Masters Series title on the second match point."

    No one is making a big deal of this match because I think everyone knows it's fairly meaningless.

    Nadal never lies. Especially here when he talks about how much he loves his new "cortex". Nope, never lied at all.

    Modesty is a euphemism for lying in the case of professional sports. If he says he wasn't tired and really was, then that's a lie, which contradicts your second point.

    So you are saying Nadal is lying? I would believe the words coming out of Nadal's mouth rather than some ******* journalist on ESPN!

    Nope. YOUR post was irrelevant.


    I have a lot of respect for both players (Nadal still is the undisputed king of clay), and I am sure a lot of you do too, but why it seems like a common trend that the ONLY excuse for those fanatics is that Nadal was "washed up" and "tired" and "exhausted".

    Nadal is such a good person. It's good to lie sometimes.

    This tired business is an insult to Nadal. No one ever claimed Federer was tired when he was reigning No 1 and I am sure it bothers Nadal that people are making excuses like this up. The guy is as fit, if not fitter than Federer.

    Nadal never comes up with lame *** excuses like other mofos do.Even if he was tired he would'n't say it.

    So the fittest athlete in tennis since Bjorn Borg just said he wasn't tired after a 4 hour match that was delayed mainly due to time antics by both players (2 injury timeouts, multiple delay of serves, rallies that required no energy because both players were pushing, etc.) is lying?



    Nadal said he wasn't tired; he gave it his all in the final since it was his home crowd. Federer simply beat him with a better gameplan that Nadal was not ready for.

    Federer was tired all 16 months through his MONO and still played and won the US OPEN. Nadal only played a 3 setter, hardly a legitimate excuse for losing

    THis is the big difference between Nadal and Federer. Nadal doesn't make lame excuses while Fed says the lighting isn't proper, I beat myself, and etc.

    Right. Nadal doesn't ever make lame excuses. Why do his fans do it? Why not follow where he is leading?

    Actually Toni is the biggest ******* of all! :twisted:

    Maybe thats not such a bad thing for Nadal. If you can learn to beat Fed, you can learn to beat anyone, right?

    People, Nadal played a three set match. Whatever you want to say about it, it was only three sets.

    Because then people would bash Nadal all they want w/o anyone defending him...and when you're a fan of someone you don't just let people say whatever they want.

    Federer played very well. I think this is more important than beating Nadal in Hamburg. This was in Madrid - in front of Rafa's home crowd. It meant a lot.

    Roger can hang with Nadal when he's serving very, very well. High percentage, some aces and unreturnables.

    Sadly Roger hadn't served well for a long time. He needs this part of his game and an improved return of serve to challenge Nadal at the French. But perfecting these facets does not guarantee anything. Keeping up this kind of play in a best-of-five match is a tall order.

    I disagree. If you look at this forum, it is predominantly Nadal fans (and Federer fans) who launch a pre-emptive strike and then defend their statements. Nadal doesn't make excuses. Federer doesn't make excuses. For some reason, their fans seem to think it important to do so for them.

    bottom line is fed just destroyed nadal. Whether nadal was tired or not. He stepped on the court and got out played. If he wasn't match fit he shouldn't of played, simple as.
