Federer owes Djokovic a win in Rome final.
 
Djokovic turned out to be the savior of Federer's grand slam records in 2011. Its time for payback. Though Djokovic will definitely take lead in the year race at RG or Wimby or let say the worst case,post Wimbledon hard court season. But still it would be courteous of Fed if he could gift Djoker by winning in the finals. I know that the guy is 31 year old and on clay, Raffy is almost unbeatable. Maybe by playing absolute aggressive tennis like Gulbis did, he can achieve it.

All NDjokovic did was delay the inevitable. And it'll be all the more painful for mentally weak RFederer fans when BOOM. RNadal won 18 slams. RNadal already owns the h2h (19-10 overall and 8-2 in slams), including the most Masters 1000 titles in world history. So now it's just up to RNadal to tidy up the slam count and sweep aside RFederer for good.

RFederer doesn't like NDjokovic. RFederer wasn't complimentary in the slightest in their US Open press conference after their semi-final in 2011 (where NDjokovic smacked a forehand return cross-court, totally destroying RFederer's pathetic mental foundations).

RFederer isn't strong enough to play aggressive tennis like Gulbis did. Throughout his career, stamina has been an issue (has a disgusting record in deciding 5th sets). Unless RFederer wants to fold after 4 games, he shouldn't do this. Not that whatever RFederer does is going to win him the match, anyway. 20-10 h2h, here we go, Talk Tennis posters. :-P

Rafita is still a drama queen.

Rafa can't win 7 more RG. :evil:

RNadal won't have to win 7 more Roland Garros titles (although he easily could). RNadal would just have to find 7 from the four slams. RNadal made 2 US Open finals the last time he played it, the Australian Open final the last time he played it, and RNadal has made 5 Wimbledon finals since 2006 (a feat only RFederer can match), and RNadal is still at the tender age of 26. Saying RNadal won't reach 18 slams is simply wishful thinking. :-P

tennisaddict 05-18-2013 01:18 PM

Will Rafa also have 5 or 6 YE no 1 ?

Will he get at least a couple of WTF ?

Does he have the honor of having the least number of weeks at nmber 1 for a guy with 10 plus majors ?

TheF1Bob 05-18-2013 01:21 PM

Agree, Fed needs to return the favor to our savior.

The Nadal dominance needs to be stopped! :mad:

Nadal is 27 in a couple of days..

Fed owes Djoko nothing. Rafa owes Fed a reality check about Fed's chances at RG. Can't wait!

Nope, Fed needs to return the favor to Novak for RG 2011.

You know I'm right. :twisted:

It's going to be carnage tomorrow!

The brahma bull is spitting and snorting, and the matador is going to get impaled on one of those top spin horns.

wait, what reality check? Did Roger call himself the favourite for RG or something?

mandy01 05-18-2013 01:52 PM

Roger owes it to himself to win this. Too many lost opportunities. I'm sure he'll try his best. If not, he still got match wins, earned some points, put himself back up in the race for now and can move on to Wimbledon with some hope. At his best, he's the best on grass.

After 2010 i was really concerned that Nadal might catch Federer. When you consider that Nadal has only won two slams in the last two years I believe the pressure is now off. I doubt very much that Nadal will even get to 15 slams let alone 17. This is a great thing for tennis. The last thing the sport of tennis needs is a 'Barry Bonds' record. I dont want to see tennis viewed in the same light as cycling, baseball, athletics etc

Hey with sufficient PED use, everything is possible. :lol:

If the ATP and ITF suddenly withdrew from WADA, Nads might be a lock to win 27. :lol:

But the fascinating thing will be what happens to his slam count in 8-20 years. Biological passports are coming. They caught Contador, and they'll expose the cheats.

Oh, btw . . . whatever happened to your avatar? :lol:

Djokovic is the winningest player at the Slams since 2011 with a 55% winning record. Nadal is second at 22%, and Federer/Murray are tied at third at 11%.

Nice imagery :)

Clarky21 05-18-2013 03:10 PM

Has Hitman had a lobotomy lately? Either that or he is building Nadal up to something he's not so that when **** beats him at RG, he can crow endlessly about it.
