that's how nadal fans are talking now . few years back one of their biggest fighting argument with Fed tards was that Nadal doesn't lose big or epic matches. And one of biggest trashing Fed argument was some big and close matches which Fed lost. Currently, they are building Nadal's legacy on ex Fed trashing reasons . What an irony
i usually don't agree with samanosuke but in this case he is completely right. how can you say its a plus and only 'helps Nadal's resume' to get to the finals of Grand Slams 3 times in a row but lose, when a few years ago everyone argued that Nadal was so great partially because of how clutch he was in important moments and Grand SLam finals???
this certainly is somewhat detrimental to Nadal, losing these big matches, his legacy. there are pros of course, a final is a great accomplishment at this level BUT you can't seriously say now that Federer is tarnished by losing in some finals/big moments and that it actually helps Nadal to do the same? it's absurd
