Re: Roger Federer: "The best player in history, no doubt", says David Nalbandian

That opinion is perfectly logical if one looks at everyone's resume objectively. Does anyone think that Rafa wouldn't jump at exchanging Fed's career (that overall variety of accomplishments) with his? Or does anyone think that Fed would trade his for Rafa's - basically dominance on one surface?

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!

Re: ~~ GOAT discussions ~~ Vol. 2

Nalbandian says there is no doubt Federer is the GOAT, listen to the experts folks

Nadal GS Finals wins over Hall of Fame opponents: 2 (Federer, Djokovic)

Federer GS Finals wins over Hall of Fame opponents: 7 (Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Agassi, Safin, Roddick, Hewitt)


weak era argument?

Re: ~~ GOAT discussions ~~ Vol. 2

Well either Roger is the greatest or he isn't. Doesn't really matter what David and the like say... Of course it's a great compliment from one tennis genius to another, but GOAT isn't reliant on opinion - but objective facts. All the evidence points to one man, and no - we won't entertain the begging and pleading by Wafitards. When Wafa hits 17 slams with slams 15, 16, and 17 won off of clay, then maybe we will look at your posts seriously.

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

Re: ~~ GOAT discussions ~~ Vol. 2

These Fedtarts are so desperate and afraid of what Rafa can do that they cheer and exxo defeat as they would celebrate a Wimby win for Fed.

There must be a medical name for these kind of people besides fedtarts.

Suicide:
Doha´14(T) - Houston´14(W)
Miami´15(W) - Madrid´15(T)
- Nottingham´15(T) - Winston Salem´15(W)

FITD:
Washington´14 - Halle´14

2014 - PAW-> 51st - Suicide->41st - FITD->28th
2015 - PAW-> 38th - Suicide->1st - FITD->10th
Race - PAW-> 43rd - Suicide->1st - FITD->5th

As opposed to Dulltards who can't talk about anything except weak era competition , Dulls injuries(which mysteriously allow him to play Basel and Beijing but not WTF) and how number 1 ranking and weeks are no longer important.

Federer > Nadal

17 > 14
302 > 141
6 > 0

The gap is still huge even in 2015.

Nadull got nothing on the greatness of Roger.

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.

Re: Federer > Nadal

Doubt Nadal will catch him in Slams. Unless he wins 3 more times French Open.
