he beat a worn torn, injured clay warrior who had to win damn near every single tournament and every single match on clay before coming to wimbledon.
 
and he had to beat nole not once but 3 times in the finals on clay where nothing is easy.
 
fed is as superior to young as the living are to the dead. its the same way with nadal and rosol.
 
so he got his one lucky win of his lifetime over a top gun. he is right back to being nothing again.
 
nadal wins more matches in a single season than rosol will win in his career.

concurred........no wonder why flukers like rosol are given so much praise, all the praise stems from hating nadal........when soderfluke beat rafa in 2009, the amount of hype he got was sufficient for the rest of his tennis career........

we all know what happened to soderling's career after that........meaningless hate only comes back to bite you in the arse and it is proven in most nadal haters' cases.........they praised whoever took care of nadal once or twice and nadal showed them who the real boss is........

even this year, rafa has turned the tables on djokovic and hammered him three times in a row........

I don't think Novak "chickened out" of anything.  First, he was probably mentally tired in Cincy after winning Montreal.  It is very difficult to win both of them back-to-back, but at least he made the finals in both.

Secondly, at Wimbledon, Novak didn't play his best, but give Roger some credit.  Roger played great in that match.

Also... it probably was to be expected that Novak would come down some from 2011.  I mean - the guy was on fire that year.  It would have almost been impossible for him to keep that level of play up this year.  But I remember when Pete once said (or was it Lendl)...anyway...whoever said if you win ONE slam a year - you've had a great year.  Novak has already won the AO...so no matter what - he's had a great year.  Plus, he's won some master's titles too.

nothing is easy on clay. nadal has had to win damn near every match and every big clay event for the last 8 years.

that has taken its toll on him. so he is more vulnerable now.

Come on, it wasn't all hype about Soderling. He came back the next year and beat Federer in the quarters! And he is the 3rd best indoor player of this era. Give him some respect!

Only you can talk trash about a player when he is injured and hasn't been able to play for an entire year..  :mad1:

shank, I can see your point but couldn't disagree more with you. no matter, how good a player is they lose at some point. I think you are angry with some other posters on the 'other boards' who made fun of Nadal losing that match. Nole lost to Anderson, Fed lost to Canas 2 times, what was it, back in 2007, crippled Nadal lost to Youzny 6 0, 61 at Tokyo and I can go on and on ....

it kinda bugs me that you  started  hating Nole but, hey, it's your choice. Even your signature about Vajda is so silly. I like you and I think you are a passionate guy ... but I sometimes really don't get your logic to be honest with you. If I used that reversed logic I can tell, hey guess what Djokovic  def. Rafa in Madrid and Rome (fast, and slow clay) back in 2011. And also, Djokovic hammered Rafa 7 times in a row on all surfaces. Not sure what your point is.

If you are so frustrated, have a drink. I'll buy it for you but please you know better than this bud  :))

just watching Raonic and it seems to be a  complete disaster. so much hype in Canada about him, and I like him but this is not looking good at all . too slow ... even  if he somehow wins this match he won't go too far

about my sig, i put that after nadal hit back hard from defeat last year and almost took out djokovic at the beginning of the year in one of the greatest AO finals ever.......i thought he deserved such a sig after such effort........

Karlovic lost....

I was wondering what that noise was I heard earlier today...
It was the collective sigh of relief from the players in that section of the draw... :) :)
Nobody wants to play that guy...
He never is a threat to win a major, or even go deep, but he always has "upset potential"

I'm not too kind to Nole at all. If he was smart enough to play a one MM 250 tourny he would be still #1. sorry I might have misread your post but it seemed to be a bit malicious. I love Novak but please I'm not Dallas who can't live without Federer  :rofl_2: (oops, love picking on Lady Dallaserer)  :))

Always check the facts before making statements like that.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Tennis/2011/10/Features/FedEx-Reliability-Career-Indoor-Records.aspx

Three current ATP World Tour stars -- Swiss Roger Federer (No. 6), Scot Andy Murray (No. 8) and Swede Robin Soderling (No. 11) -- all rank highly in the all-time indoor list, according to the FedEx ATP Reliability Index.

So yeah, he is the 3rd best indoor player of this era.

But no, for you, the facts just don't matter!!!  :rofl_2:

I'd suggest you watch that match once again. Rafa ran a lot that day, and Soderling made him run. Once you are on the court to play, no excuses. If he wasn't fit, he shouldn't have played.

Seriously, sometimes I just don't understand guys like you. Every loss of Rafa is attributed to injury or fatigue. Newsflash: he is human, just like you and me. He will have a bad day, once in a while. It's natural!
