• Federer again in prime time at US Open

    8/30/12 4:25 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Federer again in prime time at US Open Roger Federer will feature in the evening marquee match once again as the US Open second round resumes in New York. He will take on Bjorn Phau of Germany.

    World No. 1 Roger Federer is in New York looking for his second Grand Slam of the 2012 season. The Swiss walked away with the Wimbledon crown a bit over a month ago and regained the No. 1 ranking from Novak Djokovic in the process.

    His second round opponent is world No. 83 Bjorn Phau. Federer and Phau have met just three times; the German won their first encounter way back in 1999, but Federer won the last two, including a win in 2010 in Estoril.

    Phau had a rough run-up to the US Open. He German lost three matches in a row before beating Maxime Authome in the first round this week. He'll be facing an in-form Federer who comes into the US Open with the Cincinnati Masters crown under his belt.

    Prediction - Phau will have a difficult time winning games. Expect Federer to breeze through in straight sets.

Nadal unsportsmansalike

bump Nadal into Rosol at Wimbledon

arrogant sore loser

Nadal bump purposely from frustration. It is clear.

Many of tennis fans know that Nadal is a player of dirty gamesmanship. fake time-out cheater.
too annoying always. excuse. bump to player. ugly protest. push of ego two-year-ranking.
looks down on Sampras era. etc.

can go to see. Nadal wear the shirt of "history 7" . Nadal and his fan perform a chat. And that video was exhibited all over the world.

selfish arrogant team

as always

well it's funny because Nadal's name is nowhere to be found in the article or title, yet tennisba's chosen to post that here. Cue nadline and her "Nadal IS tennis" comment variation below...

This person is a troll who just spams all the topic threads. It doesn't matter if it's a Rafa thread or not. It's just pure hate. Same garbage, same propaganda in broken, truncated sentences.
