Does Roger's 2012 wimbly win feel hollow?
 
He didn't go through Nadal to win it.And he took advantage of the roof.Period:twisted:

No because he's 2-1 against Nadal @Wimbledon. Only the French Open is his white whale. Nadal on clay is his Moby Dick.

Andy just got himself broken for the second set. Momentum changing in Rogers direction was not unthinkable before the rain came.

It does a bit, as he didn't get to play Rosol. Fed is just unlucky, Nadal keeps all the good matches to himself... :(

2012 AO was better,better quality matches and heart beat-stoping tennis..2012 wimbly was a sham,a farce.

Roof automatically disqualifies a slam from counting as soon as it goes up. New rule I heard. Never mind that the steady changing of the surfaces is evolving the sport by a huge amount already. Bringing the roof into play just destroys the sport altogether.

This thread is pointless.

The only clan around is the 17 GS clan
the rest is just fantasy tennis stuff

Nope. It felt very satisfying.

They don't pay out on those who don't show up.

No. Boring slow tennis, lots of timewasting and a predictable winner and final. Anyway, i meant for me personally. You asked what I find, you were interesten in my opinion.

I doubt it. He's desperate enough to celebrate anything. The silver medal was hollow for him though.

You do realize Nikdom's thread was a response to your fellow Nadal fanboy making this thread first: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=451085

But to answer your question, it's kinda impossible to go through Nadal to win a tourney if you're a top 5 player and Nadal gets blasted off court by some 100 ranked journeyman in the 2nd round, I thought that was self evident.

Regarding the roof, well tennis is about adapting to different conditions, yes? It's not Fed's fault his 6 year younger strong era competitors couldn't adapt and weren't up to the task of stopping him from becoming the oldest Wimbledon champion since Laver some 4 decades ago.
