HISTORY is on the line on Sunday! *many reasons*

If Nadal wins, he will become the greatest clay counter ever. Bjorn borg has 6, but I am sure even bjorn borg would say with 6Nadal is the best ever on clay given the competition.

moreover, he will be in double digits, (i'm not sure if djoke can put as much a fight on grass against him) so he would be really close to #11 which would bring him merely 4 slams away from 15 and arguable G.O.A.T) and would be kinda funny because everyone was wanting djok to lose, and it would only prove to be the start of another nadal run.

If Fed wins, he will have another slam, and surely be the current G.O.A.T. (won't be questioned unless Nadal reaches one less than his slam count)

Also, if Fed wins, Djoker is number 1 for the first time, and has officially accomplished a new Feat, and would upgrade his status a bit.

Doesn't matter who wins, a lot is on the line.

Re: HISTORY is on the line on Sunday! *many reasons*

Sunday's final may also end up counting for two slams rather than just the one as I would expect the winner to be favourite to go on and win Wimbledon given the confidence boost it would give them. 16-11 or 18-9 would be a significant difference in the GOAT debate.

Yup, nadal can cut the margin very quickly. If Nadal gets to 15 and fed is at 16... Nadal is in the G.O.A.T. discussion for sure. If fed wins, he is unquestioned g.o.a.t for a while i think.

Is this a joke? Given the competition?

Am I the only one that doesn't see Rafa winning Wimbledon even if he wins RG this year?

2000's competition> late 60's, and 70's. Deal with it, like it or not borg will so say himself, along with all the other great people.

there is no such thing as GOAT folks.

this concept is based on a very flawed logic.

Complete trash, and the same goes for the rest of your post. This is the most dire clay field in the history of tennis. You should be banned from posting.

while not as good on clay, Rafa has improved his grass abilities. If Nadal faces Fed/Murray in the final at Wimbledon. I think nadal would have the edge for sure.

Re: HISTORY is on the line on Sunday! *many reasons*

Here is how the match will go. As always when Rafa plays Roger, he wins the coin toss and elects to receive. He then breaks in the first game, and that's that. No history. Just the sad truth that even the hottest of fires can be choked out when you take the oxygen out.

and if Fed wins, all the whoever else is greater than him would be on the rocks until someone matches him or Nadal is very close to his slam count.

Well yeah, but since 2005 Rafa's winning record on clay has been something like 95% or somewhere around that.
