Excuse me? Isn't this the ONLY reason Nadal is owning your boy according to Fedtards? Nadal is the most clutch player the game has ever seen along with Sampras. Djokovic is very, very close

Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

No, Nadal is nowhere near clutch like RF. When he faced his true rival (according to his diary book), he got whooped. He almost lost the RG final this year FFS. Next.

Djokovic, on the other hand, is a clutch player. He goes out of his comfort zone on MPs and pulls out ridiculous stuff time and again. If I saw it once, I'd call it luck. If I saw it twice, I'd call it unbelievable luck. He's done it too often for it to be a coincidence. Still, the lack of mental fortitude of the field today has also played its part.

Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

This one is largely reflected in their rankings since one's nerves are best measured by their ability to win.

There's no way, for instance, that a guy like Berdych should be ranked higher than Murray because the latter obviously wins more, hence his higher ranking.

Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

I can write a long post on why GSMNadull's wrong but that's not going to change a thing. Saying a defending, pushing mug like that disgrace from Spain is clutch is ridiculous.
