Tennis Discussions / Re: The French Open Draws Are Out
« Last post by Fiero425 on Yesterday at 10:38:08 PM »
The French Open has never been so "expected" with so many eyes looking at Rafa slide to #6 and to see if Nole can continue this "run!" This is setting up to be an even better season than 2011 for Novak if you can believe it; AO and 4 Masters so far!  ://  :innocent:  :whistle:

So the talk is aboooot Nole at RG and not The Rafa?
Considering how the season has started that seems apropo.
Should be fun to see how this plays out. :))

Yeah, you are smart.

Remember when Djokovic used to bounce the ball '100' times before he served. It used to drive everyone, including me, crazy. He stopped. Somehow he was able to change.

You do know that I wish luck to all players, Nadal included. But do not talk too much.

I'm actually trying  to watch challengers again. It is tough though. It's hard to find live streams, but I find my way  :)

yes, Nole improved and Nadal should too.  He is getting himself critics and pressure for not improving.

you really like tennis and not a glory hunter by watching challengers, bravo to you.

Yes, you have to follow the rules.  But not that I am biased towards Rafa,  but I do think if you are just a little bit over the time limit and especially in crucial moment like break points/set points, the empire should not be too strict, just a few second to let them breath more after the long rallies is not totally unreasonable.  Just like breaking rackets or cursing are also breaking the rules, but the empires also do not give them warning every time the players do so, so I think the same can be applied to time wasting.

don't get me wrong, I do hope he gonna improves.  Because not only does he break the rule but that it does not do him any good since he will be getting huge pressure since the empires may punish him at any time

I do think Rafa talks/complains a bit too much at the later stages of his career, he did not talk that much when he was younger.  And I do lost a bit of my respect towards him.  He better lets the racket do the talking.  But then, may be he is the biggest target of this time limit rule so he feels angry about it since though he may commit this fault the most for all players, he is not the only one who is over the time limit

they are now attacking him before the RG begins (guess they fear him too much even though he is clearly in a slump) by saying he talked to atp and removed the empire that had argument with him. They are now calling him the worst names possible  :mad1:
Babe, I know you love Rafa and I truly love you.

However. if Bernardes, who is a good umpire is getting 'removed' from Rafa's matches because Rafa doesn't like him that is really wrong. There is  a very good reason why we have rules/law ... We have to follow them. I just lost all respect for Nadal. Sorry, but he is behaving like a spoiled brat.

You can challenge the rules civilly. The Earth does not revolve around Nadal. I feel bad for an umpire who hasn't done anything wrong. Bernardes followed the rules. Nadal can not take more than 20 or 25 secs when he serves. Period. Those are the rules and they are same for everybody. NO Ifs or buts.

I agree with you.  That is why I say if the article is TRUE, then Rafa is not right.  He should try to shorten his time instead of kicking away the empire but I am not sure if the article is true.    And if it is true, he is not only not right but rather foolish, removing this empire still does not solve his time limit problem, don't y think other judges will not punish him when he committed the errors?
Think about it this way. Can Nole, Fed and Rafa get away with everything? Nope. It's just right that any of them are above the rules. Yes, they are all fantastic players.

I do know you have to follow the rules for the company you work for.

I would say the same thing if Djokovic, who is my favorite player, said or did  something stupid.

The ATP/ITF umpires are doing a hard work too. They don't get even 000000.1% of what  the big 3 divas are making. Djokovic, Fed and Rafa are worth almost $600 millions combined.

I think that Rafa should be smarter and there is that time when you just don't talk. I don't like big egos. I don't care how much money you make but still ...
