Nadal now leads Fed 4-1 H2H, does he own him?
I know it was kinda expected, but Nadal beat Federer in 4 sets today in the monaco final. He now leads their head to head 4-1. Considering the unbelievable regard in which Roger is held throughout the world, everyone think hes just wins wins wins, and dominates completely. This is 99% true, except for when he has to face Rafa.
former champions and respected tennis pundits have said the last couple of years will be looked on as one of the most dominant times of mens tennis. Again, this is mostly true, but how can it be described as a totally dominant period when the #1 player has a 1-4 record over the #2?
all this after roger said about Nadal - hes quite one dimensional.
I think Roger is gonna have to work work work or else he can kiss goodbye to roland garrosIt might end up another Sampras situation, as Nadal isnt going to decline, hes going to keep imrpoving. I honestly think the only way in hell Roger will win the french is if someone else beats Nadal, i cant see him doing it on clay.
However, by the same token, I also think, the only way Roger wont win wimbledon or the us open is if someone else breaks his wrist.
I have a huge respect for both guys. No doubt in my mind Roger is most awsome player ever probably, Nadal is also amazing, and he is HOT! hehe and also mega exciting to watch.
I think he may have gotten into Rogers head a little, I think Roger will fear him a lot more than he will fear Roger, howeverr, if we are in such a 'period of dominance of one player' as is the way the whole world seems to think it is in the mens game right now, shouldnt that statement be laughed out of court?
