Because he's leagues above them. I can understand the fighting spirit but doesn't he have any pride? There's only a certain amount of beatings he can get at the AO before it starts to look riddiculous.

That was more than 3 years ago, he was 28 at the time and still in the top 30. Besides, I didn't critisize him, then. Heck, even a year ago he made a great effort getting to the 4th round and even took a set off of Djokovic.

Obviously, he'll do what he wants but I, personally, don't feel comfortable seeing such a fantastic player from a few years back getting straight setted in his home major by a former journeyman. Repeatedly.
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
