Why was Nadal Fogged in straights Today?

OddJack

G.O.A.T.
Some reasons may be considered:

1- He was injured
2- He doesnt care about Masters
3- Uncle Toni showed up and messed him up with some bad advice
5- High bouncing FH
4- Add your own...

Well, the ball wasnt high bouncing in US open when Nadal got Fogged. And he cared about a grand slam, I guess?

The real reason is : OK, he is getting old not at his best, BUT

He always had problems against players who have a bold personality and cant be bullied. Remember he was 2 breaks down against Pella as well and he came back.

but Pella is no Fog, Or Rosol, Or Soderling, or Kyrgios. Can you think of any other with such personality?

Did you hear him yelling " Comon" ?? Last time he did that was against Rosol. I mean, how funny of him Yelling "Comon" when he always says "Vamos"!!! Also remember he shoulder bumped Rosol in that match. Didnt work.

What a sweet win for Fog. Remember Moya was his wife's boyfriend. To beat Nadal and his coach both must have been a great satisfaction.

I am hoping he gets the title tomorrow!

RAI TV are scrambling to smash out a 3 part tv special as we speak. The same way that eskimos have 400 words for snow, there aren't even words in the english language to articulate the intertwining layers of mano-a-mano BS in this situation.

I love the way Fog only really got going and started applying himself after the code violation for chucking the towel and ball in the direction of the umpire's chair at 1-3 which was, as his code violations go, pretty pisss weak. Then telling the umpire "that's a big mistake that you made" on the change of ends at 2-3. Never looked back. He and Nick should go for drinks.
