Nadal is better than Federer on a hard court also

Here is the video of the Dubai Final which was played in 2006 on a Hard court surface...if you watch the video Nadal loses the first set but after he gets warmed up he does everything better than Roger...He is more consistent and is actually creating angles and coming up with better shots on the hard court...the only Surface that Roger has an edge on him might actually be grass...

The only problem is that more people can beat him on hardcourt than Federer.

Re: Nadal is better than Federer on a hard court also

here is showed only the nadal winning points. I think that at this final Federer underestimated Nadal on hard. Definitely the next time, won't !!!

Re: Nadal is better than Federer on a hard court also

Nadal beats Roger.
Roger beats Blake.
Blake beats Nadal.

Is James better than Rafael? No.
Is Rafael better than Roger? No.
-It is simply a factor of styles-

Add to that, the fact that Nadal CAN lose to anyone, any day.
And Federer only loses to Nadal.

Its obvious that Federer has greater control over the tour.
But his kryptonite just happens to be 1 spot away from him in the rankings.

Agree! Nadal should play on grass against Fed but I think it takes a little time for this

Re: Nadal is better than Federer on a hard court also

So Rafa leads the H-2-H on hardcourts 2-1. That's true and that's great for Rafa. Roger has 4 slams on hard courts, Rafa has zero. Roger has god knows how many titles on hard courts, many more than Rafa that's for sure. Rafa isn't even anywhere close to Roger on hardcourts.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

, as proven by their results in Dubai, IW and Miami.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

the spaniard is so good on fast courts that he will win queen's, wimby, toronto, cincinnati, usopen, and whatever tournament he will enter for the rest of his life... provided he meets fed in the finals...

Too logical for the thread starter to understand.

not fair to compare
blake/nadal and nadal/federer

blake beat nadal twice
nadal beat federer 6 times

and

Nadal is better than Federer on a hard court, on certain matches at critical points....

Re: Nadal is better than Federer on a hard court also

Rafa beat Roger Federer when he was only 17! on a hard court! imagine what an effort. In straight sets as well. hardly anyone beats roger in straights

this boy is improving and will be able to beat federer on hard and clay. He is only 20. Federer arguably can't improve anymore. Nadal is going to be the better player.
