I can compare all this with boxing.

For example I am Lenox Luis , and in my prime years, there is no any boxer who can beat me and because of that I get numerous titles. After some time new young boxer comes , for example Vladimir Klitchko and he kicks my ass dozen of times.

Does all my titles won mainly against weaker boxers makes me better than he ? I think not....

H2H is more important. Especially between champions.
Nadal is the undisputed champion on clay: 12–2 H2H. On hardcourts and grass it is more even: 6–5 and 2–1 to Federer.

Even if Federer had won all their matches on grass and hard, Nadal would still lead the H2H, because he is so dominant on clay.

I expected more against a one-dimensional grinder.

But what if one month later Federer wins his 8th Wimbledon?

What does all this recurring nonsense about H2H have to do with this thread's topic? This is an injury update thread. If you want to troll about Nadal being goat or disprove the trolling do it somewhere else.

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal confirmed for Viña del Mar

Video of Nadal practicing today -- practiced for 3 hours with Pere Riba.



Another video by @genny_ss here: http://telly.com/0W44GQ

Said he's feeling good on court, will try his best in Chile in a few weeks. Also talked about Armstrong and how bad he was for both cycling and sport in general as he was a myth that turned out to be a lie.
