LDG,The scenario in your post 244 is a very common one, so nothing new there. Who won the match?This could go on and on if so be, however the two points I made about Federer’s head to head against Rafter and the exhibition matches between Nadal and Federer are valid from the go. Your point still doesn’t change the fact that Rafa beat Roger in the match you a referring to.
@240 - I'm not sure exhibitions count really. I'll add another stat for you that Nadal fans will be unaware of or blatantly deny. Federer has played a 5 set final on clay against Nadal and scored more points in the match, unfortunately losing the 5th set in a tiebreak, despite having match points.This really could go on and on...
Yes it is a grudge match for RF, Sue Barker, Rod Laver and all RF cronies. It is also grudge for Nadal. I hope Nadal takes revenge of AO2017 when RF stole the match. Rafa win in 3 sets also to give mesage to Wimb..... for seeding no 3 before n 2. How Sue Barker and the Duchess of Cambridge will weep if RF looses.
Nadal will be facing a RF who is a cheater as his MTO when he had lost his serve to Nadal at AO2017 showed. In addition he will be playing in a madding crowd full of disrespectful RF fans turning the match into a circus. Wamos Rafa, you are the best.
14FOREVER,Murray has had a great career. So true.I can’t for the life of me understand why some people bash him the way they do. We are all entitled to our opinion but his results are very good. I like him and think he has a great personality.
LDG,I thought I would add this as well.Nadal also leads Federer in exhibition matches as well by a resounding 7-2 margin to take their total head to head to a whopping 31-17 in Nadal’s favour.That is something else Federer fans probably didn’t know or should I say, don’t want to know.
Oh god here is Sue Barker pretending she best friends with another ex-player.
@234 You mean when Novak was tired after having got to the final of Rome straight off of winning Madrid and was in a 3 set battle till late on the Saturday night.
Two womens semi finals and no HYS...…….WHY?
Some of the posters feel the need to throw Murray into the mix just so they can bash him. Really pathetic and unjust if you ask me. Murray is a double olympic champion, 3 time GS winner, Davis cup winner and won 43 titles in all. Not at all bad.
It's always the same players in the semi-finals and it makes for a rather boring spectacle.Why not give Djokovic, Nadal and Federer a bye into the semi finals and let the other players battle it out for the last semi-final place?
"novak wil demolish either one of them in the final" just like in rome when nadal won 2 sets against djokovic 6-0 and 6-1?
Even if Novak goes to 5 sets and Roger or Rafa win in straight sets. Novak will demolish either one of them in the final.
Its safe to say that all 3 players are worthy of the goat title so what it comes down to is what do you favour more? the brute force of Nadal, the superhuman (for lack of better discription) Djokovic or Federer ( I dont have enough characters left to discibe him)? They are like Zeus, Hades and Poseidon deviding the world of tennis amongs each other. Enjoy it while it lasts!!
@230 agreed although Rafa had to contend with Novak for nearly all his career too.Neither Roger or Rafa has beat Novak at a slam for over 5 years.
