Federer has only ever beaten Nadal on clay once..

Just because he's surprised people by beating Davydenko, Nalbandian and Fakervic recently, I really would not set your hopes too high.
Federer beat Nadal: 2-6 6-2 6-0 on clay.
While Nadal has beaten him 6 times on clay.
If Federer beats Nadal in MC F tomorrow, that'll be impressive, beating Davydenko, Nalbandian and Fakervic (who has retired against Fed and Nadal 3 or 4 times now) is nothing.

It's not illegal, you know.

They may be wrong but so what.

Re: Federer has only ever beaten Nadal on clay once..

This needed a new thread? You couldn't put this observation in the poll thread?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Why are they 12 but I'm only 5?

Bloomin discrimination.

Old enough that we don't need to desperately seek attention by starting a thread to state the most obvious fact in all of men's tennis.

That is about 1 more time than every other player in mens tennis in the laast 3 years.

How often do you see people pumped up thinking Federer will beat Nadal on clay?

Federer is confirming he is the best of the rest.

Nadal could end his career as the greatest clay court player in the history of the game. He is building a sizeable amount of evidence.
