Only injuries can prevent Nadal from surpassing Federer's tally of 17 GS

Only injuries can prevent Nadal from surpassing Federer's tally of 17 GS.

Is the statement above true? If so, how can be Federer be called the GOAT if his GOATNESS depends on another player's health?

No it's not true. Unless you can predict the future....tell me you can so I can have you kidnapped.

Only gravity prevents me from flying.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: Only injuries can prevent Nadal from surpassing Federer's tally of 17 GS

don't worry.


excuse selfish gamesmanship cheat will be GOAT.




congrats.




lol

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Who knows what would have happened without injuries? Perhaps an unlucky kid we never heard of, who suffered gravelly in a car accident, would have 30 slams by now, denying both Federer and Nadal every last one of theirs.

Re: Only injuries can prevent Nadal from surpassing Federer's tally of 17 GS

Dont worry he will reach more than 17 slams wit ease.just look at the players challenging him only murray and djokovic. The rest of the field in this so called golden era isnt even worth mentioning except maybe federer.He can easily make 4 slams in the next 2-3 years.In todays era if you are not a grinder with good counterpunching abilities you cannot win slams.There is no place in todays tennis for short makers and aggressive tennis.I just wish they could make the courts atleast like they were in 2006-08.so bad for tennis.

Agreed.

Nadal's injuries are the main reason he doesn't have 17 already and that Federer does.

Re: Only injuries can prevent Nadal from surpassing Federer's tally of 17 GS

Some call them injuries ... others call them ... I mean it is obvious what they are considering that Rafa seemed like he was going to get his leg amputated at Wimbledon and then ran like a rabbit just a few weeks after ....

Oh of course, those dreaded "injuries". Only reason Nole, Murray and Federer ever lose to Nadal is their back problems, no? We can all play that game
