I want to thank everyone for commenting on the Nadal issue. The issue obviously has far-reaching consequences, especially for the annals of tennis, but also for the general well-being of professional and amateur sports. The biggest problem is of course the impact such drastic measures have on our youth and their confidence as they play sports and seem inferior to these so called Übermenschs (supermen). It creates another virtual reality that is unreachable under any normal circumstances. It’s like watching Neo fight Morpheus in The Matrix and wondering why you can’t do that. It disgusts me and I actually now question the validity of all sports, especially individual sports like track (Usain Bolt), Cycling (Lance Armstrong), Swimming (Michael Phelps), and Boxing (Manny Pacquiao). These sports in particular present the biggest farces because of the mano y mano nature of the events. It’s like Barry Bonds batting in all nine slots in a baseball game, of course that team’s going to win. Nadal and these others are the same. You can see the cycles in their performances and it is hard to deny that something mysterious is happening. I have no direct evidence, except my own perception and history. I am disillusioned and saddened by the state of sports.
