    Anway, Fed isn't comepletely better, he just has more weapons.

    I think Fed has better stamina too, Rafa tends to burn out come indoor hard court season and at the end of a five setter Federer tends to still look fresh, he barely sweats.

    Monfils problem isn't stamina it's a combination of him showboating and not using his weapons.

    Lastly, Rafa wasn't injured at the USO he was tired.

    It's understandable..the dude was on FUCKING FIRE...

    FO>Queens Club>Wimbledon>Olympics>Toronto Masters>Cincinati Semis...he was undefeated for like 32 matches..
    In Spain we think that the gold medal in the Olympics was good for Spain but very bad for Rafa. It destroyed two possible holidays weeks with a trip to a very far country, playing 5 set matches...and I don´t know if he even played doubles in Olympics too.The consecuences was, as you said, that Nadal was very tired in the end of the season (SF in Cincinatti and QF in USA, no?). I hope we'' ll see a good fight Roger-Rafa this summer and autumn, after Wimbledon Roger was a bit depressed, I think, and in the end Rafa was physically destroyed, as you've said perfectly

    Actually Rafa made the SEMI'S of the US, and yea he played doubles, but he was taken out early..the Olympics helped Federer...the gold medal inspired him.

    I'm also hoping for Federer VS Nadal Wimbledon part IV lol

    Who do you think will be the winner? The last final was the best match in a final that I remember

    Re: Real Life Tennis Discussion

    Well Federer is in Zen mode or he should be..he got the monkey off his back, he has nothing to really worry about..he'll be playing free whether this is good or bad who knows?

    Nadal...i don't know if he'll make it..the loss at the french will make players think they can beat him and he's not at 100% and he missed queens to warm up at.


    Nadal out of wimbledon with an injury.

    Fed and Murray are the favorites here...

    Re: Real Life Tennis Discussion

    I saw on the news last night that there had been heaps of players slipping up (literally) on the new Wimbledon Courts. Is that how Rafa got injured? I hope Federer wins, I like his playing style (and someone needs to beat Peter Sampras' record).

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    I'd like him to...over here the Murray hype is high!!! they're predicting Murray vs Federer final, but I think english are overhyping Murray, they need to let him play his game without getting all excited, but he'll most probably make the final but Andy Roddick will be tougher than Ferrero was. I was quite disappointed that Ferrero didn't at least take a set off Murray but oh well...Women's semis today!!! 2 Russians, 2 Americans, 2 Sisters...2 places foe the final, who will make it??

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    yeah I saw, epic match versus Dementieva; there was nothing between the two players...coulda really gone either way. I'm going for Venus in the final though, if Serena plays like she did yesterday against her, she'll get severly punished imo...

    Lol yea people are slipping on the new grass.

    Thats not how Rafa got injured. Poor management of his schedule coupled with his grinder style took it's toll on his knees and he had to withdraw.

    I'd also like Federer to win.


    FED HAS HIS 6th WIMBLEDON AND 15th GRAND SLAM

    Re: Real Life Tennis Discussion

    OMG I stayed up till 5:30am watching the Wimbledon tennis but I'm glad I did: Tennis World Record made by Federer! I feel kinda sorry for Andy Roddick though. There were tons of places where he looked like he was going to win and in the end he got runner-up again. But, on the bright side, he's improved a lot and he's the only person (besides Rafa) to get Federer on to the last set.
