Yes - he'd have met Soderling in the final of RG 2009 instead...and still lost.

Assertions are fine. But they're not convincing if you can't support them with decent evidence.

Who did Noserer beat for his RG title? First time ever slam finalist? Lol. His draw was weak precisely because he beat pigeons and chokers on his way to the title. He never faced anyone who could trouble him.
jajaj , you should be happy than nadal in 2010 faced the most weak year of the last years with murray , federer , nole in patetic levels and del potro out.

that djoko of 2010 played almost all the year without serve and murray said in an interview that the 2010 was his worst year , federer was a disaster too.

that 2010 he faced melzers and youzhnys in slams semis.

in clay he never faced real competition too , only federer and djokovic fast courts specialists

Nadal? Losing a final at Roland Garros?

This.

weakest clay era ever when a ballerina suited for fast courts makes it to 5 finals.

Anyway I don't understand how can Dulltards be complaining about Del Potro 2009... Maybe they forgot he smashed their idol 2,2,2 a few months later. And soderling? The only man to beat Nadal at RG, is this a weak opponent?

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Haas arguably choked, Del Po probably got tired - but so what? Basically all you're saying is that 2 of the tough opponents Fed had in that draw were in such good form they played well enough to beat him. How exactly does that make it easier?

I posted that on paper Fed had a harder draw.
When you don't understand how a choking opponent makes your win easier, well....then you either don't know what the word choking means or it's even worse...

An easy win is 6-2,6-2,6-2. Having to come back from 2 sets down is not an easy win, even if your opponent gives you the opening by choking. As wins go, that's a hard win. If Haas hadn't choked, Roger wouldn't have had a difficult win - he'd have had a loss.

I repeat: how is it easier when your opponents are actually playing well enough to beat you?

Re: Endless Djokovic/Federer Debates (Who will end up with the better clay career)

Matt's arguments are hilarious. Basically, he is trying to say that the draw was easier because Fed won. If Fed had lost, the draw would have been hard. It's not my logic, it's his and it's complete rubbish.

I said "easier" and not "easy" but you probably don't know the difference between these two words either.
And now stop asking me useless questions because I'm not going to answer them.

But because I'm nice: DelPotro and Haas did not well when it really counted and that is what really matters in the end. They played up to their standard in the beginning of their matches (Fed didn't even play that well) and then (I repeat they choked their matches away.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Djokovic - Chardy

If you had read my posts or would have been able to understand them, then you would have noticed that I'm not making these kind of claims about hard or easy draws. I'm letting the Fedtards make those kind of cheap excuses about Fed's "hard draws from hell" I've read that often enough here from you and your fellow Fedfans.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Djokovic - Chardy

if rg 2009 was a fluke, then djokovic's whole 2011 was a fluke

and true, if a at this time 4-times-rg-finalist wins his 1st rg-title, it's the perfect definition of a fluke

Just a tard worthy comparation when u dont have anything smarter to say... I know it hurts when Balerina is helpless against his master Nadal in every slam.

Yes, winning is "easier" than losing, & if you are being outplayed your opponent generally has to do something to let you back in, but I repeat, how is a draw full of Top 10 players playing well - an easy draw?
