Fedalovic: Statistically as close to perfection as tennis has ever been

Interesting statistical analysis of every Grand Slam tournament in the Open Era which finds that the current era is statistically the strongest and best - followed by Aus Open 1990 with Lendl, Wilander and Edberg and then US Open 1981 with Borg, McEnroe, Connors. Even if people might not agree with the conclusions the analysis is really interesting.
http://www.sportingintelligence.com/...r-been-130201/

The figures at the end about each player's peak at the Slams i.e. their best run over a 4 year period is staggering in showing how far ahead of the field Fed was - he got a "perfection" rating of nearly 80% - Nadal comes second at 58%, then Borg, Lendl and Sampras tied at 57% and so on...

There's also analysis of the rivalries - looking at the "level" both players were at when they met and what the combined "perfection rating" was. Fed/Nadal had the highest peak at Aus Open 09 final, followed by Djokovic/Nadal at Aus Open 12 final... A lot of interesting stuff in the article and worth a read. When 27 of 28 slams have been won by 3 players it probably doesn't need this much analysis to say it's the strongest top 3 tennis has seen at the same time but good to compare.... Rafole's achievements as ever are enhanced by the era in which they did it in - Fed's in a league of his own but it has to be said that if we only look at his achievements post-Rafa coming on the scene i.e. from when he had a top tier rival, 2005 onwards, then the gap reduces slightly - 12 slams for Fed, 10 for Rafa, 5 for Novak.

And what about the other one of 'the big four'?

Del Potro was struggling with an injury, but he will be back.

I don't like Nadal.

Now it is Fedalovic?

It was easier to write that than "Novak, Rafa and Roger" and also the title of the article.

Re: Fedalovic: Statistically as close to perfection as tennis has ever been

too old player Davydenko is better then heyday Nadal

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Re: Fedalovic: Statistically as close to perfection as tennis has ever been

"heyday" lol

Surprised SportsTennis never returned after his ban. Some people don't care for fame or the spotlight looks like.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

Murray may be part of the Big 4, but he's far behind the others as individuals, never mind as an overall trio.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 592-171...
TITLES: 38 and counting...

Re: Fedalovic: Statistically as close to perfection as tennis has ever been

Federer at 33 with big family is not Federer at 27 . If he could do something now it is a bonus for him. He still can play great tennis but his mind is not a 100% on the game. Fed is not hungry as he was before 5 years.Let see how hungry Nadal will be next year and how long time! If Novak beat him in F at FO how Rafa will take it?! He talk a lot for AO and how tough was for him to lose it !
