    One choice: Offensive or Defensive?

    Offense and defense are neutral terms. People on this board need to realize that there is nothing complimentary or insulting in a player being labeled 'offensive' or 'defensive'. It is just a description of playing style with no positive or negative connotations meant to be assigned. One can...

    The Berdych Thread

    I don't know if you noticed but I used the word 'hope' in my post :wink:

    The Berdych Thread

    I hope for a Nadal-Berdych final in every grand slam tournament this year. Ok.. I am willing to swap Berdych for Gasquet to meet Nadal in one grand slam final

    Hantuchova appoints new coach

    She should have hired me as coach. I am willing to spend all the time needed with her and practice all day and all night long :)

    Muzzy looks ready, Ralphy not so much!

    Of course Nadal looked bad and rusty. If Nadal came out versus Murray like a world-beater and favorite for the AO, then all the haters would say he's doping b/c that's the only explanation for coming back strong after a long layoff, no? So whether he looked good or bad, Rafa's haters were...

    Nadal will win CYGS

    I'm calling it even though I don't believe it. He won't win CYGS but I figured there's no harm in making this thread. If it doesn't happen, feel free to bump it and we can all have a jolly good laugh! But if by miracle it does happen, then I will call myself Merlin. Cheers! Happy New years!

    Djokovic will win all 4 Slams in 2015

    Sweet! I've always wanted to witness history. If it doesn't happen we can always bump this thread for fun. So either way, if CYGS happens or not, we all win!

    Rafa no longer cares about No.1 anymore

    Because I thought you were better than that, no? Like I said, you used to be a decent poster. And it isn't just your post in this thread. It's an overall trend I've been noticing the past 2 months.

    Rafa no longer cares about No.1 anymore

    You used to be a decent poster but lately I've noticed you've become extremely trollish and vehemently anti-Nadal. I don't know whether it's some adverse reaction to MN but I wish you would return to being a level-headed, decent Djokovic poster b/c they are very scarce.

    One Wish: 2015 Slams

    Nadal wins AO, FO, and Wimbledon. Nishikori wins USO to stop Rafa from CYGS.

    Rafa no longer cares about No.1 anymore

    It's quite rich of you to assume what Rafa fans might say in this thread, no?

    Rafa no longer cares about No.1 anymore

    Even if that is true, it ultimately won't matter with Rafa. He has won a lot more slams as #2 seed than as #1 seed. I think the underdog mentality makes him play better.

    Who wins the most slams from now on?

    Baby Djokovic is better than any of those 3; Nishikori might still do something significant but the ship has passed for Dimitrov and Raonic. At their age their resumes are underwhelming for what was expected and does not portend multiple slams.
  14. triforce defender

    Rafa no longer cares about No.1 anymore

    That's not true. The #1 and #2 seeds have equal chance of drawing the #3 or #4 seeds in the FF. #1 - #4 seeds have equal chance of drawing the #5 - #8 seeds in the QF. Being #2 will give him equal chance of winning majors as being #1 so Nadal needs to move up 1 spot in the rankings.

    Who wins the most slams from now on?

    1. Nadal 2. Djokovic 3. Coric aka Baby Djokovic

    Rafa no longer cares about No.1 anymore

    Rafa states in an interview with a French TV station that he will not sacrifice career longevity for the top ranking. Being healthy enough to play as long as possible is now the most important thing to him...

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    This is one of the reasons I am confident that Nadal can be too much for any player in history. He beat the reigning FO champion when he was only 16! Nadal on clay is like game genie on the court.

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    You can take that as an excuse if you want but if I were merely being a fanboy why would I even bother to explain what I just explained to you? I would just ignore you but instead I took the time to admit I wished I had edited my wording. I mean, how many people point out their own mistakes...

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    I apologize if my wording was a bit inflammatory. That was not my intention and next time I will try to review my writing before posting. I do feel Nadal would beat most past champions in 3 or 4 sets but explaining each individual matchup would have made my OP 2 pages long and that's not good...

    Tennis player with biggest personality offcourt? (ever)

    What do you mean by "biggest?" Most interesting? Most tabloid-worthy? Worst behaved? Ernest Gulbis-like honesty?

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    I don't know for sure that anything I say is true. On the other hand, 99% of everything spouted on this board is opinion so I don't know why you are attacking me specifically. If you disagree, feel free to explain why you think I am wrong. I may be a fan but I'm not stupid. I enjoy...

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    MN does not own the copyright on "King Rafa" or fanboyism for that matter. I'll use whatever words I like, thank you very much. With that said, I didn't like the final wording of "King Rafa" and "too tough" after I posted the polls and wished I used better wording but unfortunately, i always...

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    Muster the perennial FO underachiever? Not a chance! Muster even needed 5 sets to beat Costa that same year.

    How Would Nadal Fare at FO in Other Decades?

    Personally, I think he would have had approximately the same success as he has this past decade. Federer and Djokovic are excellent clay courters, almost on par with champions from past decades. Here's how I see it going down. Keep in mind that b/c Rafa's 'decade' spanned 2005-2014, I decided...

    Players you're supporting in Australian Open 2015.

    Actually I had no idea you took a break from these forums. But as a warning, this new poster once started a thread about how Nadal tanked vs Soderling at 2009 FO b/c he was scared to play Federer. What a thread! :shock:

    Interesting. Federer trains on small things people do not like

    Does the training involve practicing hitting tweeners? Because I've never seen a player attempt so many tweeners in grand slam matches. I remember Djokovic at USO 2010 being interviewed whether he could pull off a tweener like Federer and he replied that no, he can't hit it between his legs...

    Who is better on clay: Murray vs Hewitt

    Maybe Sabratha finally saw the light and realized not every thread has some hidden agenda for bashing Hewitt. It' was getting quite tiring and paranoid on her part. Btw, is Sabratha really a her?

    Players you're supporting in Australian Open 2015.

    If your only criteria is a fellow Djokovic fan then yes by all means like him. But if you are looking for a poster who doesn't embarass other Djokovic fans with his constant ignorance and trolling threads, than disown him. This new poster makes Chico look good by comparison!

    Who is better on clay: Murray vs Hewitt

    Kafelnikov managed to win an Olympic Gold Medal too. How many Masters do you reckon that's worth? :-P

    Who is better on clay: Murray vs Hewitt

    Didn't Kuerten play Yevgeny Kafelnikov in the QF every year he won the FO? Reminds me of how Nadal always played Almagro the QF during every one of his 3 most dominant FO title runs (2008, 2010, 2012).
