What would be more impressive?

Between these 2 great accomplishments.

I say Nadal's because he had to beat the best and did it in a shorter time.

Re: What would be more impressive?

You should compare these two feats AFTER THEY ACTUALLY HAPPEN.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Federer cause at least he's won 10 of his slams in a decent era.

Re: What would be more impressive?

If Nadal won a career slams six years ago then it would be a well achievement. Not in this era

Nadal was 16 then. It sure would be much impressive more.

Re: What would be more impressive?

Awesome. "Nadal's CGS at a young age", "Federer winning FO beating Soderling"... If you're going to be biased, at least try to cover it a bit. Oh and I love how the third option is "Neither is that good" but there's no "both are equally good".

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Pretty much my thoughts.

I like how you threw Soderling, the clay master, in the poll.
