A fresh Soderling will beat Nadal at RG next year..book it.

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

Not nearly everyone.
Why don't you start a useful thread for once if you're that bored.

Mcenroe : Nadal is a better athlete than Federer

There are few more impressive sights in sport than Roger Federer in full flow on a tennis court but the Swiss great cannot compare with Rafael Nadal as an athlete, says former world No.1 John McEnroe.

Debate rages on over who is the better player but McEnroe said Nadal's only rival in terms of athleticism is his old sparring partner Bjorn Borg.

"The two greatest athletes of all time are Bjorn Borg and Rafael Nadal," the American, still playing on the seniors tour as well as commentating, said at a sports conference in Qatar where he was joined by Borg and Romanian Ilie Nastase.

"Federer is one of the greatest players ever, but I don't think he's as good an athlete as those two."

Federer, who has a record 16 grand slam titles to Nadal's nine, will get the chance to continue his rivalry with the Spaniard in London's O2 Arena at the ATP World Tour finals which start on Sunday.

Nadal, who is fit for the season finale after missing the Paris Masters with a shoulder injury, is already confirmed as the year-end world number one after winning three of the year's four grand slams to leave Federer in the shade.

Five-times Wimbledon champion Borg believes the Spaniard could maintain his dominance next season.

"He's still up there. If he stays healthy and motivated, he can sustain it for a long time," the Swede said.

World number two Federer won his 65th ATP tournament earlier this month win to move ahead of Pete Sampras, although he still trails Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl and McEnroe in overall career titles.

Re: Mcenroe : Nadal is a better athlete than Federer

All i did is print an article that quotes Mcenroe. I didnt even make a comment!!!

So now we are not even allowed to quote hall of famer John Mcenroe on a tennis discussion board?

Please give me a list of what articles I am allowed to quote?

Re: Mcenroe : Nadal is a better athlete than Federer

that's oldddddd news.. that thread's been on this forum so long ago it has grey hair. Try doing a search next time and save yourself the embarrassment



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Re: Mcenroe : Nadal is a better athlete than Federer

They are different types of athletes, so it's very hard to compare the two in that fashion.
