Excellent!!!! And many thanks for the effort!!! Much appreciated.

Very nicely written. I think this "beauty" (or grace I like to call it) is going to be more obvous to more people as he retires.

Tenez wrote:I am convinced that Fed can still beat Nadal on clay if the balls are like FO 2011. In fact I think he will beat him next year.

paulcz wrote:But nobody knows and as you say faster balls and Nadal a bit struggling could result in such a challenge.

If all these favourable conditions do not help Federer win another FO, perhaps Nadal's knees need to be sabotaged for Federer to win another FO. It is highly unlikely, according to these comments, that Federer can win RG, playing Nadal, fair and square. Am I correct in my observation? Winking

I want Federer to win RG, without any artificial and favourable conditions. Devil

PS: This is the fearless Federer I want to see write his legacy, not someone who requires external help.

“I came here and never dropped my serve. That's the kind of reaction I wanted to see from myself. I didn't have a letdown,” said Federer. “Even though I reached almost all goals already this year by securing a medal, winning Wimbledon, and getting back it to World No. 1, it's important for me to push forward and give myself the best possible preparation for New York.

Interesting tidbit. Federer is plating two exhibitions in South America.

Dec 12 - Del Potro in Argentina ( Buenos Aires perhaps)

Dec 15 - Tsonga in Colombia (same venue as Nadal-Djokovic perhaps)

according to Lester/Koenig during the ATP commentary during the changeover at 5-0 in Federer-Djokovic first set.

Is that Fed's first time in SA in the last 10 years? I don't understand why they have not got better tournaments there with their history of the game and great players.

It's an amazing effort for European players to spend a few days over there at the end of the year around Xmas.

Dancing Salsa is good for the soul, NITB. It is like Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Perhaps Djokovic and Nadal should join and have some fun too. Winking

There is aplace and time for salsa LF, and it ain't a tennis court in front of thousands of leery spectators Well...at least not in MY books

The resulting applause in the stadium can be used a barometer for the appropriateness. Winking

PS: Can you add 'h t t p : / / w w w.' (without the spaces) at the front of the text and try.

I saw the same link when I was on tennis.com, they are fixing the website at the moment, I may try later smiley

The ATP website has it up already. You can try either.
