When Nadal stopping winning Slams for a 1 1/2 years, he dropped out of the nation's collective consciousness. Now that he's started to win again, it will take a year for regular sports fans to realize that :p

This years awards show was really wack IMO! Like nobody really was there. Usually EVERYONE is there, Lebron , Kobe, Serena. This year it was like the Saints team, damn near every person who was in the Winter Olympics and Derek Fisher

So 11 hour mugfest between two clowns with no return of serve or ground game somehow deserves and award, while Nadal's second Channel Slam doesn't. Now I know these awards are useless.

The funniest is Landon Donovan winning best performance under pressure :lol: So he happened to be at the right place at the right time to score a goal in the last minute of a groupe stage match. Wow!

Compare that to a golfer on the last hole of a major championship or Lindsay Vonn in the starting gate of the olympics downhill...

I once read somewhere that the ESPY's count until about april or so, so Nadal's performance will count for next years awards unless he is upstaged by Usain Bolt or someother equally dominant athlete.

So 11 hour mugfest between two clowns with no return of serve or ground game somehow deserves and award, while Nadal's second Channel Slam doesn't. Now I know these awards are useless.

You know I actually agree with you but I guess we are in the minority. This match is nothing to be celebrated on this scale. I was cringing when they were being presented with their awards on court for having the longest match:o

I havent got the slightest how ESPYs are nominated nor awarded, but as its clearly post SW19 2010, its rather bizarre its Roger and not Rafa on that list. IMO.

If that were the case then Mahut-Isner wouldn't have won their award this year :shrug:
