The pile of excuses grow and grow every time you post, this is too tiring sifting through them all. I'm sorry, i'm not reading whatever you posted just now. It's just regurgitation at this point. Adios, i'm done here, didn't make one post to engage in another ****-fest of excuse-making with you.Fed clutched out that 3rd set in Miami 05. Nadal didn't lose it.
AO 12 will also be thrown out of the list , since AO 12 was post prime Federer.
Nadal wasn't visibly sluggish in AO 09 final. he made some really insane gets. there were 1 or 2 points in set 4 where commentators started saying Nadal was maybe getting a little tired, but he came up with insane defense in the rally of the match to get to BP at 1-2 Federer. That was Nadal's best AO and he played his best tennis in that final.
I'm stating that Federer served like cr*p in that final, that's not an excuse, that's an observation.
it was prime fed, but not peak. whereas it was absolute peak Nadal.
Strictly speaking, prime to prime, they had only one match on HC, which could have gone either way.
yeah, that's because Nadal wasn't injured/sick in any of his matches vs federer.
not giving much weightage to Basel 2015 match in Nadal's worst year is fair game, but that's about it.
Whenever he was in injured/sick in general (&completed the match), I've mentioned it in the past : AO 11 QF vs Ferrer, USO 07 vs Ferrer, Rotterdam 2009 final vs Murray, AO 14 final vs Stan, abdominal problem in USO 09, doha 11 vs davydenko etc.
I've defended his MTO vs delpo in Wim 11.
My point was about this anyways.
" Nadal was the only player who could beat Federer even when he was playing extremely well. That demoralized Federer. Perhaps it is responsible for one or two losses, but not 23"
but you don't have the guts to accept you were wrong here, do you ?
