lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

first win in miami federer was sick

2nd win was in doha was 3 sets

lost in miami to fed in 5

basically hard is 1-1

clay
3-0 none in straight sets, 2 4setters 1 5setter

this isnt called dominance, its called a rivalry not a dominance

lets make the fact clear that nadal is #2, its not federers fault nadal didnt make it to the finals of AO, wimby, USopen, those basically count as losses

you can only say dominance if the player is better than the other, gg

Re: lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

You've convinced me.
I'm hard at work on my own little proof of how Federer doesn't dominate Andy despite the overwhelming h-2-h. Help from a master like you would be appreciated.

5-1 looks like domination to me.

Emotions of a Safin fan

Re: lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

But if Roger wins the final he will be totally dominant of Rafa, right?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

5-1 is domination. No other way to put it.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

He doesn't dominate Roger gamewise, but unfortunately he does result-wise. And he dominates badly

But you made quite a good case that the dominance is based on mental edge and nothing else. Roger has no problems to outplay Raffa in a game or in a set, but he has problems to win matches!

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open

Re: lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

It's domination...Roger hasn't been able to solve Nadal's game just yet. Certainly helps Nadal that they've met three times already on clay, so that is an advantage.

Re: lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

In 2 of the 3 encounters this year Roger has won more points. If Roger converts just a few points he could have lead 2 to 1 this year. The contests have been very close. Of the 6 matches, each player has won more points 3 times each. Difference is that Rafael has won key points. Certainly not domination.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: lets make this clear, nadal doesnt dominate roger

u cant use dominate when u dont know what the word means

# To enjoy a commanding, controlling position in: a drug company that dominates the tranquilizer market.

his wins on clay are not easy and enjoyful, nadal has had to fight for it, those matches couldve gone either way, we have to wait to see them play more matches

I don't think people really care if he dominates Fed or not. A +4 differential is enough for most.
