Rafa: 'I'm An Ordinary Guy Achieving Extraordinary Things’

Post by Tenez on Wed Jun 13, 2018 2:32 pm

I could not agree more. This is what science can do nowadays. A dedicated player not even using his natural arm can thanks to hard training and modern diet can achieve. Nadal has raised the physical bar of the game 13 years ago and has stayed ahead of the field for that long.

It's a made up champion and I am glad he acknowledges it!

"What are your thoughts when people say you're an absolute beast on clay, and that you're a myth, a legend, a hero after winning for the 11th time?
My answer is that I'm an ordinary guy achieving some extraordinary things. That's the reality. I don't let the superlatives get to my head because I don't have the time for that. I don't want to sound like I'm something special but yes, it's unique to win the same Grand Slam 11 times."





now manipulate as much as you want.

Tenez, are you ok? Don't even mean to be snarky, sincere question.

You're a narcissist who has no competition on clay because it's a weak clay era.

As for naxroy:
If you think his words - carefully selected - are meaningful, I pity you.  I've seen him demand umpires be changed, that surfaces be changed, that tournaments be played on clay.  Seen him barge into Rosol, say 2 different things in interviews about the same match dozens of times.  Seen his snarky comments about Federer.  Seen him fist pumping double faults and every other point he can.  Admits to cheating in autobiography.  Blames injury when he loses. Uses tactical time outs - numerous times he has done this. Booed in Australia the last time. BOOED. Breaks time rule like no other - blatant cheating.

And I've missed a few things from that.



Why don't you take the frickin' sand out of your ears?

I think he is a great champion and I am very happy about his recent success, when 2 years ago I thought he was over.

really amazing, and we can all enjoy, talking about it in the forum

That's your response to Nadal cheating and attacking other players?  

You're a devoted fanatic.

Hello Daniel

Big Grin 

Breaking news - sportsman advocates changes that favour his game

As for the rest - he is no worse an offender than many others (with the possible exception of time between points and dubious MTOs - the latter being something he seems to have cut for the most part in recent years).


A great champion, role model and a credit to the sport.

I am the Emancipator
