He's as desperate as Lendl who wanted to win Wimbledon so bad in the 80s.

Nadal is also desperate to win WTF.

Being desperate is a good thing. It means that they really want to win that one title, that has eluded them. Keeps them hungry!

You forgot to mention how hungry Federer is, for the Olympic singles Gold. So much so, that he's gunning to participate in Olympics for an unprecedented 5th time. Now that's desperate, no?

As Federer is desperate to win MC, Rome , but it is Novak , then it sounds much worse.
I suppose you also believe Roger is desperate to win Delray Beach too since he hasn't won there. lol

We are talking about major events here. You don't get desperate on small events.

You forgot that Roger has won 2 medals(Gold and Silver). Not to say that he doesn't care about Olympic anymore, but he has done enough for his country.

Yes, my bad. Federer was the Runner-up in the singles Olympics.

Doubles Gold is awesome, although it doesn't add much significance to his Singles career.

Thank you and have a nice day!

Really? Maybe DC, oh wait , that's not major event
.To say that player of Novaks caliber is desperate to win sounds a bit odd.
For sure that Novak want to win RG one major that he lacks, but desperate :confused:

Nope. He just loves his country. That's why he played way more DC and Olympic matches then all other active players.

Yes, excange some casual words with him, looks like very nice,well spoken, and polite person.
Imo , TV and photos tend to exaggerate his features like narow face. Body is great, long and lean..Beautiful eyes, long lashes , every girl would envy him for that.

I think you meant "every guy would envy him for that" but I see what you mean. Jelena certainly does! :razz:

Roger is not going to lose any sleep if his team can't win DC. However if Nole still fail to win RG this year it going to be another long summer for him to get over with. Yes, he's desperate to win RG, just like Federer was desperate to win until he finally won in 2009. Nadal is also desperate for WTF, otherwise he wouldn't complain about WTF playing on indoor hard court, and want the event to play on clay.

Not entirely true. This is a quote of what Nadal said,

"I know it's not going to happen for my generation," Nadal, who stepped down as vice-president of the players council last year, told reporters on Monday.

"I'm talking for the future generations, something that will be a little bit fairer for the players. And I think for the fans it will be interesting to change the surface every year to the surfaces we qualified on for the (World Tour Finals).

"A good player has a chance to qualify for the (World Tour Finals) four or five times in his career, so if during this four years you have a different surface every year, a minimum one time he will have the chance to play on his favorite surface."

To quote the OP from Nadal news thread:

...
Fans of other players, kindly do not troll in this thread, or your posts will be reported without a second thought.
This thread is just for posting relevant news/articles/updates/photos/match highlights/interviews etc. concerning only Nadal.
...
The same way, this thread is ONLY ABOUT DJOKOVIC. So fans of other players, please kindly do not troll this thread.

Thank you.

So it looks as if the baby was conceived towards the end of January during the Australian Open! Maybe that's why he was too tired to get past Stan or maybe he needed some consolation from Jelena after losing to him? :wink:

Jelena wasn't with him in Australia but AO landed early this year and with his early elimination, he was back in Serbia for the last week or so of January. They went on a skiing holiday to Kopaonik and he skipped Davis Cup

From his FB on 28th January:

Today i took Jelena for a walk on the mountain where i grew up, Kopaonik. Wanted to show her all the places where i used to spend time as a kid...And we got lost in the woods. Well, in my defense, it's much harder to find things when everything around you is white.

Obviously had to do something to keep warm while they were stranded out in the snow for hours :p

Any news from Novak, guys ? I am getting a little worried about RG preparations. I will be nervous if he doesn't do well in Rome.
Three continuous years of bad luck at RG is a little too much. I hope he gets it this year. After that Nadal can keep winning it till the end of time.

According to Kolar (czech fyzio who gave short interview today) he has inflamation in his tendon (arm). So I guess its encouraging for you guys since there is no word of wrist problems any more... :)
