WWW: 2010 USO Rafa! vs 2011 AO Nole?????

I am that this hypothetical match has not yet been entertained...


I think Nole is better hard court player and stronger in this match-up!

Re: WWW: 2010 USO Rafa! vs 2011 AO Nole?????

I think because Nole is 7-4 in matches & 16-9 in sets H2H and wasn't always in such good form and only lost when tired (ATPMC -07, USO -10), inexperienced (IW -07) or won more points (Olympics -09), he is the favourite when these two play on hard courts. Yes, I think Novak in top form will beat any Nadal (including Toni).

Thumbs down Re: WWW: 2010 USO Rafa! vs 2011 AO Nole?????

You know, I am really disappointed by how NOT helpful you guys are! It has been nearly a full HOUR since I asked how you edit a pole and NO ONE has replied! I have to say, this is not so nice...

I'll tell you why.

Because this is a stupid thread with a stupid poll (that is how you spell it) about a topic no one can truly answer.

That, and it is a Friday night.

Re: WWW: 2010 USO Rafa! vs 2011 AO Nole?????

Well, thank you, but I would like to have the Rafa & Nole options in two different groups if you follow? So that the first 3 are Rafa and the bottom 3 are Nole? The current layout is a bit confusing and difficult to overlook.

This is an above average quality and relevance, hypothetical match-up GM thread imo. 2003 has made many similar threads.

Re: WWW: 2010 USO Rafa! vs 2011 AO Nole?????

this is a tough one because although it can be argued and may be likely that Djokovic played at a higher level at Australia 2011 than Nadal US OPEN 2010, you have to consider the two players overall. Rafael Nadal never gives up and although Novak has improved his mentality over the past few years drastically, he certainly is not as fit as Nadal (assuming no knee problems arise). Also factor in the fact that Djokovic has more often than not failed to defeat Nadal at bigger stages and may not have as much belief as Nadal. let's face it, Nadal almost always is going to know that he can win a match against Djokovic and is always going to play like he knows he can. SOmetimes Djokovic against Nadal doubts himself a lot. So I would say in this hypothetical situation that although Djokovic might have more talent at the time, he would lose in best of five scenario due to weaker mentality / physicality.

Re: WWW: 2010 USO Rafa! vs 2011 AO Nole?????

May depend which Djokovic : Djokovic's Melbourne SF one would win in 4 imo, Djokovic's F one was a little bit physically diminished imo (movement esp+serve, he just took his opportunity in first set then he was confident and Murray killed himself) then I think Nadal would have beaten him physically.

I don't think Nadal played that great in USO, I think he played better in WTF imo.

Btw Mjau could you write with an usual font ? it's hard for me to read you, I4ve nearly given it up, and I don't think you write not to be read

useless old guy
