Re: Wimbledon Chat Thread: The Lawn of Dreams
Thanks Nadal. You just ruined my Wimbledon.
The most infuriating thing about being a Nadal fan (besides his corny haters) is that more than any of the other top guys he's a confidence player. When he lacks confidence, as he often does in early rounds, he plays very much like everyone who hates him says he plays. He just refused to go for his shots, and his backhand was even worse than it was during the beginning of the clay court season. If his knee was bothering him he should have just skipped this tournament. Although of course, no one wants to skip Wimbledon. I also think Nadal needs some new voices around him. There's no excuse to go into the first round with such a limp backhand and horrible return and lack of confidence. Hopefully this is not the beginning of another sabbatical.
First, the Heat win the championship again. Now, Nadal out an even earlier round than last year. Thanks sports gods. I'm done with this Wimbledon for now. I'll see ya'll if/when Shara makes the quarters.
