What you dont get is that Rafa is the one who slows down any surface. His game and huge topspin bounces high of anything, and if not then he uses slice to slow it down. It has everything to do with Rafa then the actual surfaces. Put Raonic vs Isner and we would be watching an ace fest on this same court.

Rafael Nadal - The Greatest of All-Time

14 grandslams - Olympics Singles Gold - 4 davis cups - 28 masters 1000 - 69 singles titles
Career Golden Grandslam - Most titles at one grandslam - At least 2 slams on each surface
10 consecutive years with a slam title - Slams on clay, grass and hard in same year
3 year end no.1 finishes -141 weeks at no.1
9-2 in slams vs Federer - 9-4 in slams vs Djokovic - 7-2 in slams vs Murray
10 doubles titles including Olympics Doubles Gold & 3 Masters 1000

One could only imagine what his totals would be if it weren't for his many setbacks/injuries. Truly an icon.

He's so much better, that's why he choked in the two biggest matches they played this year when he was in a winning position both times.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

This set is Rafa's. ... let's face it

SheepleBuster: Nikola Tesla of MTF ...Jesus of America - the Capitalist Crusader.. the Morning Star ... the Bringer of Light.

My Black List: InfiDULL, Gutless Federer

Suarez & Nadal : True Trailblazers in Sports
*Proud hater of the neo-L.Ron Hubbard of Espana, the fake Pharaoh without clothes ... cult leader extraordinaire and ...

Fact: George Washington did not lose to Nole in Wimbledon final

Nole, don't you dare become a clown during this set like you have earlier in the round robin.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Are you people(yes, I am aware I am generalizing) ever satisfied with anything? All the constant bitching and complaining! Also, how many are fans of the game vs cult of personality followers? Damn!

Just venting, no replies required.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

How many times has Nadal come back from a set down against Nole? I can think of Wimbledon 07 which ended in a retirement and Madrid 09 only.

14.
