When somebody plays better than you, sport is not very difficult. When you play against somebody that is better than you in most of the things that really matters in this sport, in this kind of surface, then it's tougher."The Shanghai Masters is Federer's 94th career title, moving him into a tie with Ivan Lendl for second place on the Open era list.
"He played very fast, and he played well."Of course was not the best match for me of the week.Federer said he was surprised to see the wrap and didn't feel Nadal was struggling with his movement.In his postmatch news conference, Nadal elected not to discuss the knee injury, saying, "I don't want to talk about that now, sorry, but after losing final is not the moment."Asked if he would play upcoming tournaments in Basel, Switzerland and Paris, Nadal refused to confirm his participation.But, it has also been discussed seriously, but there is, obviously, no definitive equation. From his "fashion" choices, to his fat girlfriend, it's also juvenile backand forth.But, it shows that the question does arise outside of a gay context like DL.
