Federer vs Nadal-Who Owns Who?

Im sure this topic must have been brought up here before but without me having my say, so here goes. If you look at the stats it would appear that Rafa clearly owns Rodge. The head to head is currently 12-6 in favor of Rafa to be exact. So it would appear that Rafa owns Roger, but far from it. Ten of their eightenn meetings have been on clay, where not surprisngly Rafa has won nine of those. On grass Rodge leads Rafa 2-1 and on hard 3-2. So in fact Rodge leads as far as the battle of the surfaces go. Its just that Rafa is the best clay courter of all time and most of their meeting have been on clay.

Whats more is that Rodge has won 13 grand slams and Rafa only 5. In the end id say Rodge would at least win double the amount of slams that Rafa does, making him clearly the better player. The thing is Rafa is an animal, the way he carries himself on court, where Roger is a gentleman. So its a really interesting rivalry. You can read more about that here. So in the end i'd have to say the rivalry is pretty close, even though it doesnt apear that way, and Rodge will go down in history as a better player for sure.

Re: Federer vs Nadal-Who Owns Who?

This thread sucks because:

[_] This topic did not need a separate thread
[_] Fake account
[_] It asks when and/or will Nadal become #1 in the world
[X] It is a Nadal v Federer thread where making sense is prohibited
[_] It assumes Federer will forever be on top of the tennis world
[_] It is a lame ass troll attempt
[_] It is a “Threaten to leave” thread
[_] It was started by Rafa=FedKilla
[_] It over hypes players that don’t deserve it
[_] It contains the Croatian contingent in a argument either among themselves or with others
[_] It was started by JustCause
[_] Original Posters grammar makes me suspect the post was written by 4 year old
[_] It claims Player X career is over after 1 bad loss
[_] It tries to determine the best player ever (on any surface) for the 200th time
[_] It asks when or if a young player will ever reach their potential after a totally expected loss
[_] It is a serious discussion of a exhibition match
[_] It proclaims a 16-18 year olds career is finished after a couple of first round losses
[_] It has the word Gilbert in the subject line
[_] It discusses doubles when its not a Davis Cup weekend
[_] It is a serious discussion of a clay clowns chances at a clay event or in a individual match against a competent clay player
[_] It is the annual thread where people bitch about clay courters not showing up and embarrassing themselves on grass
[_] LOL Jerry Seinfeld
[_] To much sex talk in this thread
[_] It speculates whether player X is on dope without any evidence
[_] It asks/assumes Safin is finished in tennis after a totally expected few first round loss to the local baker in the first round of small tournament X
[_] Use the damn search engine
[_] It accuses the loser of choking when he did nothing of the sort
[_] It talks about fake injuries and/or fake injury time outs
[_] Cramp is called a injury
[_] BROKEN CAPS LOCK
[_] It claims females can be competitive with males in any form of tennis
[_] Wrong forum, douche

Its not to early cos Roger is the greatest of all time, and therefor owns Rafa.

You can't compare this as Roger is a few years older It's impressive what kind of career Rafa had for his age so far. Nobody knows how much more GS titles he is going to win, but who would have thought some years back he would ever win Wimbledon for example? Nadal had great results on all surfaces, even though he hasn't won a GS title on a fast court (yet).

I think the title of your thread is a bit misleading. Nobody owns the other Nadal is a bad match-up for Roger, especially on clay, but even on that surface they had a few close matches which Roger could have won (like the Rome final 2006). On the other hand Rafa could have already beaten Roger in Wimbledon last year.

It's surely an advantage for Rafa considering the h2h that they meet so often in a claycourt final, but he has shown in matches on other surfaces as well that he is a player who causes Roger trouble.

I dont get how it is dumb. Since you cant make an intelligent reply id have to conclude that this thread might be redundant but that you are in fact a moron yourself.

I hear ya but Rafa wont last much longer. He had his best season of 2008 in his career, it wont get much better for him. He puts too much of an effort into his game and already he is injured. Rafa will keep doing well at the french but he start struggling eventually physically. Roger's career will be much longer cos of his economic and effortless style. Rafa is just a workhorse, he will brake down mark my words.
