Yevgeny Kafelnikov: "Rafa the best thing that happened to men's tennis"

I asked former world nº1 YevgenyKafelnikov: «are you a Federist or Nadalian?» «Nadalian; Rafa the best thing that happened to men's tennis»

http://twitter.com/#!/MiguelSeabra/status/21015773131

«Nadal much more charismatic than Federer, brings much more energy to the public & will win more Slams than Federer»

Kafelnikov is a tennis expert. I loved him always. He knows tennis better than Rios, for sure.

The biggest fan of Santiago Giraldo

He speaks the truth. You realize without Nadal, Fed would have made an absolute fucking joke of the sport of tennis considering the ineptness of the rest of the field for the last 5 years. Without Nadal, Fed probably would have gotten 4 calendar slams already with possibly 23-24 slams and counting.

Nadal kept tennis alive IMO

i totally agree.

without rafa, tennis would be only about federer and all the past greats would be treated like dirt.

rafa saved tennis, he stood up to the bully.

Interviewed...

Kafelnikov loves the vodka, we all know that. He was probably hammered as hell.

If anything, he killed tennis with the antics, moonballing and incessant timeouts.

You only say that because you seem interested in Frauderer not winning slams. Seems like rancour to me.

Nadal is the only player who consistently stood up to Fed. And he was doing it BEFORE he reached his apex as an all surface player. Tell me who else was going to stand up to Fed and stop him from winning 25-30 slams by this point?


Nadal didn't kill tennis.. He stopped Fed from making a mockery of the sport, and kept people's interest. Who the hell was going to watch slams or masters or YEC events when you know the same guy was going to win every slam for 5-6 years straight if not for Nadal.


Was One dimensional Darkwing Duckman Roddick, Hewitt, Blake, Gonzales, Baghdatis, Ljubicic, Crippled 3000 year old Dinosaur Agassi, Ladiesman Safin who showed up once ever half a decade to play tennis, Fatboy Nalbandian, going to stop Roger from obliterating every record tennis had? ROFL

kafelnikov should strictly stick to vodka and poker at this point of his life.

Wow, that's rancour talking alright.

Sorry mate, you're just talking out of being upset that Frauderer surpassed some of Sampras' records. Why so? I'm a big Sampras fan but what you're saying is just completely wrong. Everybody with a little tennis sense knows Sampras records mean more because he played in a much stronger era. You don't need to feed this bitter feeling towards Frauderer because of that.

Your reasoning is the same reasoning developed by a person who cuts his leg to heal an infected nail. Nadull saved tennis for you because you couldn't take Frauderer beating Sampras' achievements (on paper at least).

I agree that Frauderer's dominance in the mid 2000s was farcical but so is saying Nadull "saved tennis".

Sorry if I unintentionally said something you may consider "aggressive".
