What's more difficult to win: WTF or Olympic singles gold medal ?

Let's forget about the fact that the Olympics is every 4 years...
As far as I know, the winner needs to beat 5 guys en route to the title in both events.
The single difference is that the final is best of 5 in the Olympics, not anymore since 3 years ago in WTF.

What's your opinion: you think it's more difficult to win a WTF champion title or an Olympic Gold in tennis singles ?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

I do love Federer, BUT, I'm here also because (you beat me with the deletion, but you will get it):

1. I love Voo's statistics
2. I find nice article references here
3. I find live stream links
4. I always find the rankings updated before ATP website
5. I love to mock Start da Game

Re: What's more difficult to win: WTF or Olympic singles gold medal ?

The two events cannot remotely be compared. Different field size, different field strength, different format, different frequency of competition. It's ridiculous to even try and quantify difficulty.

No, but was there any other reason this thread was started?

Re: What's more difficult to win: WTF or Olympic singles gold medal ?

I say Olympics, you have to peak at the right time of the year on the right surface, which changes every time, once in four years.

The competition at the WTF is more difficult, but if you are a top player you will have more chances.

Nestor - Chvojka - Pospisil - Raonic - Peliwo

Re: What's more difficult to win: WTF or Olympic singles gold medal ?

It's not really important. That's like asking which would be harder for a tennis player to win: Wimbledon or the PGA championship? the fact is tennis has no business being in the Olympics. Olympics may be or may not be harder to win because so many factors have to fall into place (kind of like Davis Cup, another event Nadulltards use incorrectly) but it in no way reflect on anything or anyone beyond the luck involved. Unless you think Nicholas Massu is one of the top players of the decade

Re: What's more difficult to win: WTF or Olympic singles gold medal ?

The top players pimp out the events they get paid to play in at the behest of the ATP? Why don't we ask them next what they think about Dubai, maybe that should be the next grand slam. Oh and while your at it, ask them what they think about whatever crappy event/exo they are playing at, you'll soon realize every event in the calendar is the most important event they've ever played.

As usual, Fed is the closest one to the truth and the only one who can sort of speak his mind because of the star power he has. He acknowledges it has no historical importance, it's not part of the tour, and as of now it is in need of massive promotion. Of course he says all this very diplomatically, but don't let that stop the Nadulltards

Re: What's more difficult to win: WTF or Olympic singles gold medal ?

This Mtweezi is good.
Don't you have an opinion? You keep posting articles to stir up shit for no reason and you're in every Fedal thread fueling the fire.

Your idol on WTF [also whining about the court]:
“To me this is the most difficult tournament of the year. The surface does not help me at all to play at my best, nor my rivals of course,”“I don't understand why the (event) has to be indoors when you qualify on an outdoor surface.


“My goal remains for me that the [Barclays ATP World Tour Finals] is probably the last big tournament that I didn't win,” he said. “That's true it’s the most difficult title for me to win because we play it indoors, and when indoor, indoor very quick surface, so gonna be always very difficult if we don't change that. But at the same time is a challenge for me to keep improving to have the chance to play well there and to have the chance to win, so that's what I’m gonna try this year.
