A picture is worth a thousand words! http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/photo;_..._surfaces-nadal-federer_2_32_25_pm&prov=getty i love this great picture of these two great champs - it is evident that they have great mutual respect for each other and are actually genuinely fond of each other!! Even though they both fight tooth and nail to beat each other on court, they understand that life, at the end of the day, isn't just about winning or denigrating another person, but about learning to respect each! maybe there's a lesson to be learned for both the Fed vs. Rafa fans on this board??? especially, the Fed fans who resort to calling Rafa a "monkey" (a racially offensive perjorative) and other names, in an attempt to denigrate him or minimize his accomplishments, because he dares to consistently beat Fed and reveal a chink in the armor of the GOAT.
