1) I was talking about on hard.
2) Did you SERIOUSLY include the Olympics but not any of the Masters?
Did I include any of the masters on clay for that matter? No - the list is too extensive for both. A simple click on the ATP Tour has all the masters, clearly favoring Novak as the H2H record will show. Mentioning the H2H on Hard Court is enough. Unless you think mentioning the masters is more relevant than a major tournament like the Olympics, a once in a 4 year occurrence? Olympic gold, one of the most coveted awards for a tennis player. In Slams and major tournaments like the WTF and the Olympics - the advange on HC's is non-existent. USO, AO, WTF, Olympics - Nadal 5-3. Novak fans should know this. Now, if Novak fans want to gloat about the importance and value of masters please be my guest. It only strengthens Nadal case for GOAT.
Yet...12-7 on HC is "slim" advantage but "Novak's at Nadal mercy on grass"???Woah, explain that pretty please
Just did. Like I said, on grass there really isn't much to talk about. Nadal has the better resume, as well as the better H2H. It's common knowledge who's decisively better on that surface - Nadal. Maybe what's to blame for a larger sample size is a short grass season but even then there are other measures - which I mentioned.
