So the difference is that Nadal covers up his pathetic cry baby mentality and lies to the public to look strong. the guy bawls his eyes out if a guy takes a set off him on clay because he thinks he will lose lmao. maybe he was fearing another beating. what a guy, cries to get the match taken off which save his arse and then STILL cries even though the officials helped him out. he probably cries if he drops a hotdog on the ground.
Much more understandable to cry with defeat in a slam final you should have won with the whole arena and millions of viewers expecting you to talk. back in the confort of your room, 2-1 up in sets with the officials helping you to win? What a pansy.
