Yes it is my trollie friend and now it's time roger gets rewarded in us open for his hard work and patiense throughout the season.
Roger wins NO 18 and then i will hear your excuses of how can this be in A STRONG ERA that a 33 years old can win a major setting a 40 years record of winning a major in a most advanced age...................WEAK ERA FOLKS
Better luck next time Vasilis...impressive comeback by Roger, but alas, it's part of the game that you can't always get what you want...
1) Andreas the real fed fan ..... like u said he is an idiot so let him be....
2) Andreas the rafa goat..... u will cheer up when roger will beat rafa at the semis soon
3) Jason little sad trollie here are some facts........
FEDERER vs NADAL
SLAMS // 17-14
FINALS // 24-20
SEMIS // 34-21
QUARTERS // 41-26
WF // 6-0
MASTERS // 21-27
SLAMS + MASTERS + WF // 44-41
ATP 250 + 500 // 35-23
TOTAL ATP TITLES // 79-64
WEEKS NO 1 // 302-140
MOST BACK TO BACK SLAM FINALS AND TITLES // FEDERER (5 back to back in 2 slams)
MOST SLAM TITLES IN 3 OUT OF 4 SLAMS // FEDERER
I'm sure by now u must have taken bullman's whole maalox pills so i will slow down a little.
A little more info (u will need a few more pills trollie)
1) Nadal has 64 titles. At least 40 of those were at clay. roger won just 10 clay titles which means it's like this.
FEDERER vs NADAL // 69-24 non clay titles
WIMBLEDON // 7-2
US OPEN // 5-2
AUSTRALIA / 4-1
2) Nadal only dominates at clay trollie that's why he is a clay goat.
with 9 R.G titles and 40 atp titles he is the king of clay but overall roger is still ahead with most titles at hard and grass plus wins.
3) Nadal is 5 years younger that's why his h2h against federer is not really count as nadal had always the advantage especially when roger passed his prime at 2010.
A h2h should count only when 2 players have up to 2 years difference AT THE MOST.
Even with nadal 5 years younger trollie fed LEADED H2H UNTIL 2013 with 8-6 excluding clay.
Becker and chang won wimbledon at 17. nadal won R.G at 19.
most champions were dominant since they were 19-20 years old so don't give me the bull that roger had the advantage cause nadal was young.
NADAL WAS NO 2 AT 19 IN JULY 2005 and he couldn't be NO 1 cause simply roger WAS THE BETTER PLAYER until 2010 (nadal went to NO 1 in 2008 cause roger had MONO DISEASE or else roger would remain at NO 1 until 2010 without interruptions).
4) Your weak era theory is laughable at least. Your weak era between 2003-2008 included NADAL THE NO 2 IN THE WORLD FROM 2005 TO 2008..
With weak players (like u claim) arround like pagdatis, gonzales, roddick and hewitt NADAL SHOULD BE EASY NO 1 SINCE 2005.
WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT WEAK ERA TROLLIE AND NADAL COULD NOT BEAT GONZALES AT AUSTRALIA 2007 SLAM ?
WAS NADAL WEAK TOO OR HE WAS INJURED LIKE HE IS ALWAYS IS WHEN HE LOSES ?
Only when federer passed his prime trollie nole and nadal became overall the better players after 2010 AND STILL federer although he droped to NO 4 in 2011 he came back at 31 by winning 9 titles from basel 2011 to cinci 2012 including wimbledon, 4 master titles and the WF title at that period and THE NO 1 ranking at the process which he kept for 17 weeks breaking sampra's record, PROVING ONCE MORE AT HIS 31 AGE WHO IS THE REAL GOAT EVEN IN THE STRONG ERA (always by your standarts trollie).
Now if federer claims his 18th slam at his 33 it will be the unthinkable miracle as he will break the only record he don't have.
Agassi's record as the oldest champion to have won a slam in 40 years.
Agassi was 32 years and 9 months old when he won his final slam.
Federer is already older (now he is 32 years and 11 months old)
Now i think u had enough and you must took all your pills so for one final time......
THERE WAS NO WEAK ERA.......
HEWITT, RODDICK, NALBANDIAN, SAFIN.....WERE ALL TOP CHAMPIONS WHO WOULD BEAT TODAYS ALL TOP CHAMPIONS EXCLUDING NOLE.
NOLE IS THE ONLY REASON THIS ERA IS STRONGER THAN FED'S // NADAL'S ERA.
As for who is the best that's why we have titles to prove it.
Slams, atp titles and weeks at NO 1 combined tell the truth.
Sure now nadal is closing the gap but still he has a long way to go AND HE WILL PASS HIS PRIME NEXT YEAR so it will not so easy as u think that u will win the bet.
As they say u are laughing better when u are the last person to laugh.........
MAALOX ANYONE ?
Vasilis I am so depressed, please cheer me up: Nadal is getting awfully close to Roger's 17, how are we gonna be able to defend him any longer....14 and counting and that horrible head to head, it makes me sick to my stomach...
Hey Vasilis, I'd like your reply on the following, since we have a bet! We have been talking about consistency a lot here, and how much long runs in the majors mean. Now I tell you what all time greatest do when they show consistency: they don't talk of QF runs, no, cause losing in the QF's means you were consistently kicked out, true greatest of all times, they win majors for frigging ten seasons in a row (cause a G.O.A.T. is great always, so definitely in all seasons in his own time)! That is only possible if you are Rafa Nadal! One for my friends Siva and Vasilis: Rafa has now won 14 majors in only 38 attempts (he wins 38% of the majors that he plays). Do you realize that your idol Federer won his 14th major in his 40 attemp (shall we not mention in what kind of era the majority of those 14 were won)? Now as a Rafa Nadal fan, this entire clay season was a true pain. Rafa never showed real form, except a few times this RG. And still, who holds la Coupe des Mousqetaires? Yes, the h2h against the fantastic Djokovic has moved into Djoko's favor a lot lately (4-0 in their last meetings prior to this final). But who never lost to Djoko in a major so far after that Aussie Open 2012, when Rafa said 'he figured Djokovic out?'. Indeed, that's four in a row now people! And that against a player who is truly one of the best the world has ever seen. Djokovic was clearly not a 100% alright today physically, that deserves to be said. But it's time for respect to Nadal when it is due. Show respect to 14 majors in so few attempts, to an incredible bounce back after the Australian Open and a difficult clay season, and most of all, to take our hats of for 9 French Open titles for the True King of Clay, who we both (one day I am sure) will call in sheer unity, tennis' Greatest Of All Times!
Vasilis, that idiot with the pic of Federer crying is not me, he's using my name and posting on comments. Don't be mislead by him, I never have and never will have a pic as my avatar
I know love...i enjoy yours too very much and i hope i will find her someday..
As for murray u know that i admit him as a top player....etc.....and sure he is the best brit//scotish player. It's just his attitute that strangely makes me mad.....LOL
Anyways it's an honor of having you as a friend in these boards.
Thanks for your message Vasilis. I always enjoy your wonderfully optimistic posts and unwavering confidence for our champ - and there are no hard feelings on Murray. I don't agree with all of your points, and indeed I've never been a great fan of his tennis, but he's a clever player and if he learns to attack more, I might change my mind. I just want some recognition of his achievements in a tough era, and being a Brit I see the need to defend him at times.
Surely you could find a woman to match at least three of your obsessions!
thanks for being a fan of mine Vasilis!
You are welcome Jeremy. I enjoy most of your topics here and u are among the few writers at BR i really appreciate regardless if we agree or disagree sometimes.
As u know roger is playing great tennis again this year but he is 33 now so if he can win one more slam or a masters title it will be awesome.
Let's hope he does so that he gives joy to his millions of fans at the last phase of his glorious career.
