What more to be publicly viewed as the real no. 1?

Look at Nadal's H2Hs:

Nadal - Federer 11-6
Nadal - Djokovic 9-3
Nadal - Roddick 3-2
Nadal - Davydenko 3-1
Nadal - Gasquet 4-0
Nadal - Ferrer 6-3
Nadal - Wawrinka 3-0
Nadal - Murray 3-0
Nadal - Tsonga 2-1
Nadal - Youzhny 6-4
Nadal - Berdych 4-3
Nadal - Almagro 3-0
Nadal - Robredo 4-0
Nadal - Mathieu 8-0
Nadal - Stepanek 4-0

Exceptions :
Nadal - Nalbandian 0-2
Nadal - Blake 2-3
Nadal - Gonzalez 3-3
but those three are going to change soon in Rafa's favour...


so, it's innapropriate to say that he is the real no. 1 ?

Blaze saw the light years ago: "Nadal = real #1"

Indeed, the general public's favourite past time is looking through tennis head to heads on a friday night.

Re: What more to be publicly viewed as the real no. 1?

Federer - Djokovic 6-2
Federer - Roddick 15-2
Federer - Davydenko 12-0
Federer - Gasquet 6-1
Federer - Ferrer 8-0
Federer - Wawrinka 2-0
Federer - Murray 1-2

No Exceptions for Federer:
Federer - Nalbandian 9-8
Federer - Blake 8-0,

Notice any difference? That's why he isn't #1

Re: What more to be publicly viewed as the real no. 1?

something remains true:

nobody's beaten Rafa more times then Fed...and nobody kicked Fed's ass more than Rafa

(Nalby and Hewitt included)

What he needs to do to be #1 ? Let me think ...

Win more than one GS / year ?

Re: What more to be publicly viewed as the real no. 1?

Interesting to look at H2H records....has nothing to do with the number one position though! Until Nadal gets more points than Federer, he obviously could not and should not be viewed as "the real number one".

(and this is coming from a Rafa fan!)

Rafa vs Hewitt 3-4
Fed vs Hewitt 13-7

That THE exception.

When I wrote "no exceptions" I didn't mean there are no exceptions with Fed,.I meant that Nadal's exceptions are not Fed's. That what I mean.

If tennis was only played on dirt then Nadal would have a decent shot at #1, unfortunately that's not happening anytime soon

If clay was only played at Houston then Rodduck would be the clay no 1.
