What a terrible justification. He gets off on a technicality and that's
okay? I can't believe that the American people believe it's okay for a
presidential campaign to collude with a foreign power to influence an
election, or would condone presidential interference into an FBI
investigation into such an activity. What sort of a government do you
want, anyway?

For the people and world peace, perhaps?

That is true. Congress can impeach any federal official for any reason
they want. But surely, when defining whether something is an impeachable
offense, members of Congress consider whether an actual crime has been
committed or not.

No question, Presidents are often criticized for their pardons.
Frequently they are accused of letting personal friends or political
allies off the hook, of pandering to valued constituencies (e.g. Obama
pardoning Chelsea Manning). That's why they often do a raft of them at
the very end of their last term in office, when they are heading out the
door and it can't do them any political damage.
But what the public reaction might be and what the president's powers
are, are two different things. In this case, the president can
per-emptively pardon someone who is only being investigated for possibly
having done something.

And Lendl goes on to destroy the hapless Chris Lewis in the final. And the rest would be history. He wouldn't be too desperate and nervous to win it. Actually win AO on grass and not skip any FO. One match could change an entire career.
A one push on a button somewhere in America or Russia can change
the world too.

How can a guy with 8 slams including zero W be "there" with guys with
11, 15, and 18 slams? That's really poor thinking.

Muster had a claim for clay boat even with 1 FO.
You're clueless about boat and what it means.

Look who is posting this type of rubbish. Muster had a claim for clay boat ? The guys was a dominating figure on clay for that 1 year and he won 12 tournaments, other than two master series events on clay and FO in 1995, he just went on to play little clay court tournaments that top players did not even bother to turn up when majority of them were playing Wimbledon or preparing for USO on hard court. When we talked about great clay court players during that era Muster would be well behind Guga, Bruguera and Courier. Good on Muster for winning Umag, Kitzbuel, San Marino, Estoril but they are not comparable to a FO even Muster win 24 of them in a season.

So Krajecek must also have a claim for grass boat with that 1 Wimbledon titles too if we follow your logic.

Rafa's wheels fell off when the biopass was introduced. That was
followed by a period during which Rafa barely had the stamina to hit a
FH past the net or finish matches. Then the stamina is back in 30 days
prior to last years RG. A mysterious "injury" takes him out of RG,
another long break after which Rafa has been peakity peak.
My hunch is, God is barely involved.
Rafa's going to have busy July BTW. Wimbledon 3-16.7, The Bachelot trial
7.7 -->. Maybe Toni's already making offers Bachelot can't refuse?

I don't mind Bouchard or Sharapova, but I agree it's awesome. I'm

Counting up to the FO this is Nadal's best year results wise: Finalist at AO and winner at FO; He had the same results in 2012 and 2014 but in 2014 he only had one master's win (he has two so far this year). He had two in 2012 but this year he made an additional final. For the remaining parts of 2012 and 2014 Nadal was basically absent (no shows at USO, early exits at Wimbledon and except for one all remaining masters skipped). This year he does not seem to be in a state to quit for the remainder of the year. Additionally with Djokovic and Murray still not at their best can Nadal turn it around on Grass and second half of the season to have his best year ever (FO, W, USO in 2010)?

I don't think everybody else here hates Nadal. He is easily considered the best on clay. His resilience is admired. He is considered the one hole in Federer's resume.
except for TT(who idolizes him) and myself. You're wasting your time. Nobody thinks he's the GOAT except TT and his views about Nadal are delusional. Bob, Whisper, etc. don't really like Nadal, they only want him to surpass Fed's records because they resent Fed so much for stealing Sampras' thunder.
Nadal just went past Sampras slam count.

BRANCHBURG, N.J. — President Trump is considering scrapping or postponing a planned visit to Britain this year amid a billowing backlash over comments he made after the recent terrorist attack in London, two administration officials said.
Over the past week, Mr. Trump has expressed increasing skepticism to aides about the trip after coming under intense criticism for a misleading charge that he leveled against London's mayor, Sadiq Khan. A day after terrorists killed eight people in the British capital, Mr. Trump went after Mr. Khan on Twitter, saying the mayor had played down the danger to citizens in the wake of the assault.
