Is Nadal the only player ever to beat the BEST PLAYER in his first 6 slam titles?

Nadal beat Federer in his first 6 slam titles. Anyone else had quality opposition like that? Agassi only beat Sampras twice (both at Australian Open, in Final 95 and Semi 2000) in his 8 slams, for example (and I think those 2 meetings were in his first 6 slams).

I suspect Nadal has the highest opposition of all-time for his first 6 slams. He was due for a couple of lesser opponents in Soderling and Berdych. Now Djokovic the 3rd seed.

in the words of the dalai lama

fuck off

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Why, it is very important who you play in slams, makes a big difference not just because of talent level of opponent but its the 1st-time slam finalists who play nervous and make it so easy. Play established player and its always harder.

That's cool, don't mind that at all, Nadal beat him in 2008 Wimbledon and also they should meet at 2011 Wimbledon Final.

Nadal is always lucky when he faces Federer in the final, because he always gets mug draws up until the final whereas Federer has to take on opponents he struggles against such as Roddick, Hewitt and Davydenko, meaning he has nothing left for the finals.

It's a conspiracy the ATP, ITF and Toni Nadal have been working together on since before Nadal turned pro. I'd have thought that much was obvious.

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Nadal beat Murray at 2008 Wimbledon, and had a murderously difficult 2009 Australian Open Semi-Final vs Verdasco.

It was considered the highest standard match of the Australian Open. Higher standard than the Final according to those who saw it including myself.
