This is why.
There’s something really unsportsmanlike in belittling your opponent’s skills and hiding it under a cloak of objective analysis. C’mon Roger, if you’re gonna talk smack, at least have the balls to do it straight out.
I don’t understand why everyone hails Federer as the greatest tennis champion who ever walked the earth. When he loses a match, he NEVER gives the credit to his opponent. He always comes up with an excuse why he didn’t play so well. In his mind, the opponent is never better than him – it’s just that sometimes he (Federer) played poorly.
And this artfully veiled criticism of Nadal from a man who hasn’t won a Grand Slam in two years? You have got to be kidding me. You gotta grow a pair, Roger.
