but why are people going on saying that Rafa will be injured in the first place? I've been hearing this for nearly 4 years now and apart from that major injury he had in 05, he's only getting better and better...are these guys who are saying this only trying to kind of assure themselves that it won't be long before we have another change of guards or something? That's not going to happen soon now because Rafa has only 'arrived' so speaking and has a long way to go...why shouldn't he reign for a few years? Are they just hoping he'll be injured or are they really looking at it technically and saying that a 22 year old young man of sturdy build and unmatched stamina will be injured because he runs around more? Or is it just because 'others' have been saying it for so long that it has kind of crept into their minds that it is of course an inevitable thing? I find it kind of absurd...Fed has been playing for a really long time, his backhand takes the brunt of vicious spins...is his shoulder going to fall off?Those who are saying he'll be injured, please provide me with more details as to why you would come to that decision. And again, why should anyone wish that player X be injured? Silly fellows...hope that we get a very good match...would anyone be happy if their player won against an injured player?
In bold, with regard to the Sky people who want Rafa injured : So that Roger can win the FO, they have said for the past god knows how many years Roger WILL WIN THE FRENCH OPEN, they have been 100% in that!! They have been soo far up Rogers (backside) for want of a better word, that they have convinced themselfs that Roger is going to win the FO (for many years)...Every years the same: Rafa "could get an injury", or "Injury to Nadal is not out of the question" or "An injury to Nadal could well happen"
The people at Sky didn't even entertain or think Roger could or may get an injury at anytime of the year, ONLY Rafa "may get an injury"
The shock at Sky Sports about Rogers mono was enough to make Mr Barry "I love domination Roger " Federer take stock of the situation.... Yet Mr Barry Cowan never talked prior to this Roger maybe getting an injury or illness, it never enterted his mind, as he was far up Rogers a** and like the rest at Sky they didn't know how to handle themselves after Rogers mono
Barry "I love Roger" who has moved on to I love Andy Murray and I love Rafa", still brings up Rogers mono even to this day
Nadal getting injured is Sky Sports dream, Roger getting injured is Sky Sports worst nightmare
Sad but true
