If Nadal wins AO 2014, it has a big asterisk

How predictable, the Fed Fanboy circus has come to town.

It was only a week ago that the Fed Fanboys and Djokotrolls were celebrating the difficulty of Nadal's draw. Side effects of Djoker having a joke of a draw were that a) he wasn't in form and b) when he lost there's no one to be in the finals with a strong chance to win.

Whining crying babies is what you are...
Haha best post of the day :)

The fact that the C@pytards say that their guy has a hard draw just shows how many cake walks he's had in the past.

A hard draw for Nadal doesnt exist, unless it is R1 Davydenko R2 Davydenko R3 Del Potro R4 Del Potro R5 Djokovic R6 Djokovic R7 Djokovic

Do you really think guys this heavy Del Potro who can't move his *** enough to beat Bautista would beat Nadal ? haha

Right now, Nadal got 13 grand slams, how many times did he beat Federer and/or Djokovic to win these 13 ? Now compare with Federer. Thanks.

Federer had Roddick.

Roddick = 10Capys.

end of discussion.

What asterisk? Not a bigger asterisk than Novak's 2013 AO title surely. Nadal proved he can beat his nemesis off clay in a slam at USO, and it's not like Nadal was trying to avoid Djokovic here or anything.

That said, Nadal isn't through to the Finals yet (though he is a strong favorite for the title at this point).
 
They are all asterisked, Fed's hardcourt slams and claycourt slam.

Self explanatory ...

- Winning without facing inform Nadal

- His nemesis Nadal

- Injured Nadal

In addition

- the unfair imposition of Anna Wintour's debilitating medusa stare on opponents

- the presence of Gavin Rossdale .... he is just unacceptable.

:rolleyes:
**** ROTFLMAO
 
He is just mad nadal is winning the tournament
Nadal has not won the tournament yet (hope he does though)

But Djokovic quest for the #1, has just taken a huge tumble.

If Nadal does win the AO, he will be 4610 point clear of Djokovic.

The pressure Djokovic said Nadal would be feeling in April, is the pressure Djokovic is feeling right now.

No. No asterisk.

If he wins, he won because he deserved it (unless every player he is about to face retires due to food poisoning, in which case, Toni would have been up to his usual tricks).

Self explanatory thread..

- Winning without facing inform Delpo

- His nemesis Novak

- Injured Murray

In addition

- on court Coaching

- Time Violation
Oh boy, that's why they play the whole tournament and not just skip to the top 4 seeds. Part of the success is handling nerves, health fitness.

If you win a slam you won no ifs ands or buts
 
LOL at people claiming no luck is involved.

I am not saying that Nadal will not deserve the major. What is the harm in accepting it was with a good dosage of luck ?
Nice backpedal rose petal.

This *asterisk* thread of yours clearly was to discredit a (possible) Nadal win by inferring that it would be undeserved.

And your butthurt follow up posts confirmed it. When the more sensible Fed fans even started saying "stupid thread" you then backed off.

Please...

That's why people should talk less and let the tennis do the talking.

Most of the time your words come back to haunt you.
 
Big asterisk.

It says "double career slam".
I actually think Fed is winning this. OP twisted his panties prematurely.

Man, was Fed playing well. Vintage Fed + Huge Blister on Nadal's hand that looks like Rosie O'Donnell's face after 3 tequilas = No need for asterisks.

Your signature! :lol:

Maybe you switched off your telly/stream when Fed was serving for the match in the third at 5-4. :)

Thanks about the sig. I miss Chico, btw.

edit: If Fred wins this I promise never to troll Nadal fans again. I'll be a Nadal fan henceforth. I've always respected him as a person, I'd hate to see him go away.

However, if it's a Fred-Wawa final, i might just root for Stanley to win his first. I'd love to see the ecstacy on his face.

That is not nice at all. This thrash should not be tolerated in the forum!

Enough raddish in posts from Amely Muaresmo. Please be nice next time.

Have a very good day indeed! Thank you!

Yawn. It's not Nadal's fault that del Potro, Djokovic and Murray crashed out early. Nadal has had code violations for coaching and taking too much time, so the matter is dealt with.

No Asterisk, but definitely Nadal chances have sky rocked with the plummet of Djokray and resurgence of Federer.

If Federer wins, is there still a BIG "*" ? :evil:

-Faced Tsonga, who had one of his wort seasons last year, coming back from injury

-Faced Murray, coming back after 4 months & post Back surgery

-Facing Nadal, big a_ss blister on his hand, physically compromised

-Didn't have to face Djokovic

-Final against his "pigeon" countryman

-Court speed altered suddenly from this particular year

Tell me OP, does Federer get an asterisk too? Or is it only if Nadal wins :mad:

Nadal only won because Dimitrov missed a simple put away forehand at the net with an open court, just like Federer only won Wimbledon in 2009 because Roddick couldn't make a volley.

Unless Nadal was doing a sparkling impression of Murray, I think you'll find it was the latter who beat Djokovic at Wimbledon.
I don't think anything about Murray ever sparkled, but heck, I am hearing this expression for the first time, so cut me some slack.:)

Nadal's FO all have a big asterisk too, since he didn't beat Borh, Kuerten, Rosewall, Muster, Lendl, etc to win them :oops:

Have we ever seen an asterisk in tennis?
Yeah, 1941-45, not played because of WWII.
Aus Open date change 1977, etc....maybe 98 bc of possible doping findings?

But i have never seen an asterisk on a completed slam simply because of the distinct sound of the whine of a gaggle of fanboys.
Add 1973 W to the asterisk list.
