So? The fact he was always behind while playing much much better is just another reason.

Del Pony played well. Nadull won playing that same awful moonballing stuff he always does.

OP's nicknames are just embarrassingly bad

"Tough match?" World #3 Federer's ("greatest player to have ever played the game," you just said before rushing off the bathroom to change your underwear) H2H against World #58 Seppi is 6-0.

If it wasn't tough, Federer's victory would not be as glorious and godlike! Naturally, if Seppi and Isner were in Nadal's side of the draw, any victory that he managed to scrape out against these Tough Titans of Tennis would be pure luck!

there are a lot of matches where you thought he should have won. In AO 09 he even won more points than Nadal and I really don't know how he managed to lose 3rd set. His serve let him down a lot in the US Open 09 final, 11 double faults!

...well i am no nadal fan either but i can put that aside and not allow it to cloud my judgement. being two points from the final is a lot closer then being 2-sets all and never being anywhere near winning the last set...not to mention the stupid way he lost the second.

Again.

Being two points or a million points doesn't matter. What matters is the balance of power in that situation.

that doesnt matter...roger is/was the second best clay courter hasnt helped him any more than anyone else. your skill set only matters when you bring it...he was a lot closer to bringing it in the USO than the AO
