What do you prefer: Nole Slam or Nadal's 7th RG?

As a neutral fan of the game, and since I actively support neither Nadal nor Nole, I am interested to get a popular opinion about what MTF has to say about it?


With the Nole Slam, he'll be the first male in the open era to get 4 in a row and become genuine GOAT candidate.

With Nadal getting his 7th title here, he will equal Borg in total number of titles, and become the undisputed ClayGOAT.

What would you prefer?

Nole Slam would be more impressive imo, Nadal will no doubt get the 7th and probably 8th in the coming years.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Novak Slam. He'll hold the set, but only for 3 weeks. The career slam achievement has already been cheapened by Nadal winning it.

Nadal 7th slam. Novak is not allround enought to deserve a Nole slam.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

neither one. I'd love to see someone win their first slam but even if roger wins this one i'd be happier with that outcome than either one of the 2 options

None of these are my preferred outcome.

However, if I had to choose, I'd rather see the Nole Slam because (a) I like Djokovic far more than Nadal and (b) I believe he deserves to be the first man since Rod Laver to hold all four Slams (and I'd really like to see someone do it in my lifetime, so why not a player I actually like?)

If Rafa won as it would once and for all deal a fatal blow to all doubts about who the greatest player on this surface is This is my preferred outcome but I'd also be happy with a Nole Slam just so I can say I witnessed it

Not really. But Nadal hasnt won a Nadal slam (only career slam). However, Nadal is great enought on clay to deserve to have the RG record.

Borg has 6. Nadal has 6.
