Don't care about neither of them, Djokovic all the way!

(And my boy João Sousa won in another ATP250 in Valencia, currently number 34 in the world)

Maybe a bit classless there which as surprising because he's usually well-mannered. I guess he feels bad about getting thumped by a 34 year old with 4 kids

On to the YECs!

Why would he be classless? Him and Fed are good friends

And indoor hard is Rafa's worst surface (prob the biggest reason he's never won the YEC) and one of Fed's best. So take whatever victory you can get against Rafa, it will not reverse the beatings he took in the slam finals at the hands of Nadal while in his prime.

All Federer has to do is flash his 17 grandslams
Nadal is never getting there

17-302-6 .
Novak is the only challenger to Federer's GOAT title left

I second ArbitraryWater's wish.

One should enter this thread dressed in white, play by the rules, not violate the code, and shake hands with his fellow poster after a discussion.

I was kind of joking, you all know that
It was just a funny capture by that guy with Nadal being a little bit bothered about the lost.

Still, i always stated that for me Nadal is a little bit too much cocky.

lol... i wasn't referring to painting in extremes either, seņor jasi.

i mean, what if you were to dip your brush in to something other than a can of black paint or a can of white paint? would the earth stop rotating around the sun? would the moon be flung in to jupiter's big red clifford spot?


@arbitrary,
that's the spirit! besides which, as much as you guys adore rafa, djokes and fed between y'all...... i still evaluate and calculate little rod laver as the greatest of all time, with only sampras, fed and rafa coming close so far.


take your angst out on ME, not each other, bishes!

my boy bdreason: going off track here, but you probably havent noticed that any time you make that 'Cavs have the easiest distance/SOS plan' post, people laugh at you afterwards... as now. Stop it, you're looking mighty stupid. And no, this doesnt count as violating the Tennis Thread Policy, this is about the Troll Warzone that is the NBA forum.

Not sure what you mean... my post was general and in reply to AW's one, I hadn't even read the exchange between the two of you.
However, if you refer to my "dressed in white", I was just speaking about the dress code at Wimbledon

Facts are facts homie. Cavs are gonna coast to the Finals, and everyone, including Vegas, knows it. They have a stacked roster, the highest payroll in the NBA, and they play in a Conference where you don't even have to win 50% of your games to make the playoffs.

My man!!
He's a pure technicist i can honestly say that he's top 5 in terms of play near the net or just in pure technique skills.
He just needs to get his head straight, which he's now doing since he's climbing the ranking.

I've been posting Paire highlights like this all year on facebook
