Re: Is the dominance of tennis moving on to Djokovic and Murray?

Wait a second. Nadal is an 'all-court player'?? WTF? The man can't even step foot on a hardcourt without his knees dropping off.

Djokovic and Murray are by definition all-court players. It just happens to be that Federer is amazing on grass while Nadal is unbeatable on clay.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

2 Wimbledon titles and 3 more finals.
1 AO title and 1 final
1 USO title and 1 final

Yeah, that doesn't look like an all court player at all


Tell me, what are Murrays and Nole's grass and clay credentials?

1 slam and 2 finals between the two of them.

No, because Federer was. And as for the clay court specialist part, look above at the numbers. So disrespectful you two with these comments

RAFAEL NADAL

1 AO - 9 RG - 2 W - 2 USO

Re: Is the dominance of tennis moving on to Djokovic and Murray?

Well Novak is excellent on clay...........second best to Nadal without question today..........3 clay Masters(Fed has 4 I think) RG final,few SF at RG,a lot of clay finals plus other clay titles............and he won Wimlbedon........Novak at his best can dominate everywhere......that is a proven fact unlike Murray(still has time to prove me wrong)

Nolandy strikes back. Fedal has no chance in 2013.

Re: Is the dominance of tennis moving on to Djokovic and Murray?

Well, they can have a good rivalry but I think that Federer has chances in WB and USO and Nadal will be fine at Roland Garros (and we will see later on Wimbledon and USO). Now they are the most consistent players on the top four but I don't see in both a domination like Fedal.

Re: Is the dominance of tennis moving on to Djokovic and Murray?

There's no option for Djokovic dominating alone.

Or Djokovic and Nadal.

I refuse to talk about Murray dominating the slams until he wins a few more. He's only got one, guys... Steady on...
