bland?No. He was bland. That is why he lost. No creativity whatsoever.
On the match points, he showed no variety, as usual, just kept giving the same ball back and thinking the more louder he grunts the better. Federer made him pay for it and rightfully so.bland?
The guy was pathetic at the end of the tie break no first serves, he had two match points, and he wasted them, not to mention that he was another of the countless players who could not stand the pressure of the people when they cheer incessantly for Federer.
Come on that’s not fair.No. He was bland. That is why he lost. No creativity whatsoever.
I am talking about the tie breaker...Come on that’s not fair.
He played a very solid match and won 12 more points than Federer over the 3 sets.
Fed hung on by the skin of his teeth and by his own admission got lucky.
Let’s congratulate Fed for his tenacity and flair rather than dump on Coric.
yep, i dont see him getting a set and i know that im normally pessimistic, but its nadal on clay. atleast we will always have that streak in 2017 where he won each time they met and the epic AO final.I can be a huge fan, but I'm realistic. Rafa is going to crucify him on Saturday IF he gets by Stefanos.
Amazing, and some people find this "refreshing"? There's no accounting for taste I guess. Apparently some go crazy for the Shrimp Martini too. Different strokes...Fed? He's like a 100 year old Zen master, cool and collected in a 22 year old's body.
Nick's age? Well Mentally he's like a 9 year old Brat:
2017 I could understand because he was coming back from knee surgery and playing on fire. Wim8y was his big goal.Federer has definitely proven those wrong who said he could no longer play on clay. We can now only imagine the possibilities in 2017 and 2018.
Your fails are well known, so I am not even sure that you are so good at deluding yourself (never mind the others, you are known to basically everyone who has come across your postings) to maintain that line.I can be a huge fan, but I'm realistic. Rafa is going to crucify him on Saturday IF he gets by Stefanos.
There is a difference between "taking a set off Nadal" and "he will be lucky to take three games" and those also would be "granted" by Nadal.yep, i dont see him getting a set and i know that im normally pessimistic, but its nadal on clay. atleast we will always have that streak in 2017 where he won each time they met and the epic AO final.
