Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only. Nadal leads

Hewitt loses to Mathieu, down to 30-15.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Losing to PHM of all people. And he was top of the list at one point, wasn't he?

No way will Rafa be >80% for ever. One day he'll lose to Dr Ivo in a 5th set. Book it.

Um not really. GOAT stands for Greatest of All Time & Borg was 24-4 in 5-setters. That's 86%. Better than Nadal.

Where are from these numbers?
It's 26-6 or 26-5. It's a matter of counting Challenge Cup. ATP counts it as tournament of the main level I'd rather say "exhibition" so I'm closer to 26-5.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

It's the figure I've always known; think I originally got it from someone here. May be wrong. I'll take 26-5. That gives us 84% - still better than Nadal.

Actually, Fed's 5-set record is something of an embarrassment for a player of his stature. Rather like Sampras's record on clay, or Nadal's indoors.

sampras has no embarrassments over his clay resume because he never cared for it as much and neither does rafa over his indoor resume.......rafa hasn't even finished his career if you din't know that already.......

playing in an era of specialists on clay, sampras has 1 masters victory on clay, 1 davis cup victory on clay and respectable showings at the FO, 5 set victories over multiple french winners.......nadal has 1 masters indoors, winning after being 2 sets to love down in the final and beating ljubicic in 5 sets.......5 set matches are a test of a player's mental toughness.......

lesson: no need to associate every clown weakness of federer in his resume with certain things in resumes of mentally much tougher players like nadal and sampras.......

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only. Nadal leads

It's about respective 5 set records and none of the other wankfest, that my mother is tougher than your mother.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only. Nadal leads

why such an uninvited comment? in what way fed's embarrassment over his inability to win 5 sets equivalent to what he said about sampras and nadal?
