Wink Juju Henin or Rafa Nadal?

Who is better at RG?

Juju 4 titles, 3 consecutively and Rafa 3 titles consecutively.
Rafa is 4 years younger than Juju.
Juju has not lost a set since her '05 quarterfinal.

Rafa tournament record history is 21-0, Juju's 38-4.

***** Do not compare ATP players' game with WTA's, please. *****

Re: Juju Henin or Rafa Nadal?

Not even close, the man from Mallorca.

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".

WTA is rubbish.

Henin faces moronic ballbashers, the clay just shows it even more.

Re: Juju Henin or Rafa Nadal?

Rafa always needs to win 3 sets to win a match in RG, so it's Rafa by far.

Btw, if you don't want to compare wta and atp, why do you come up with a comparison between a wta and an atp player?

Vamos Nando! Come on Andy! A portuguese Vamos to André Sá e Marcelo Melo! Vamos Gastão!Auf geht's Dustin! Vamos ChristianLindell!Vamos David! Pojd Tomáš! Davai Dolgo!

Re: Juju Henin or Rafa Nadal?

Juju 80-12 sets in 8 tournaments in RG
Rafa 62-8 sets in 4 tournaments in RG (one match against Nole was finished after 2nd set, Nole retired)

As I said Rafa needs to win 3 sets in every match to win, so Rafa is better....

Re: Juju Henin or Rafa Nadal?

It's impossible for Nadal's record to be any better -- he has never lost at RG. He has never been pushed to a fifth set; in fact, he has never lost more than three sets in the course of the two weeks. On top of that, he has defeated the greatest player of his generation en route every single time.

I believe in luck. How else can you explain the success of those you don't like? ---Jean Cocteau

Utter bullshit. She is not even the greatest of her era. You guys here think anyone who hits the ball hard is a ballbasher. That makes Henin a ballbasher too Insecure sexists
