Re: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

His description of the tennis of Roger and Rafael seems accurate. Does anyone disagree and if so what aspect of his analysis?

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: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

Is this suppose to turn into another Berdych bashing session??

I think his description is fair. Nadal is young and can always try and add more dimensions to his game

Re: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

I think he was very "nice" about what happened to him,
I watched the highlights and he was surprised about the reaction from the crowd and Rafa to his "shussh".

So he finds Rafa a more comfortable opponent than Rog, good for him no harm in that.

Re: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

Berdych's speaking the truth. What do you want him to say? Do you want him to lie and do like most other people that know nothing about tennis and say that Nadal is "very talented and can play offensively"?

He didn't use these words, and he's right.

Re: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

There's nothing wrong in what Berdych said. It's nice to see he didn't degrade to Nadal's level on his comments Seriously speaking, he's not saying that Nadal is a bad player, just stating that Nadal is one demensional and that's something that even Nadal's fans should be able to admit.

Re: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

I think the problem which some people have is seeing one dimensional as a big insult. Most players are one dimensional. Berdych himslef is every bit as one dimensional as Nadal. There are few players in the top 10 who aren't to be honest. Federer, Nalbandian and Baghdatis are the only guys who can definately be said not to be one dimensional.

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

berdych is not one dimensional

he has great groundstrokes.

great serve.

he can volley and come into net

good return

What other dimensions are you speaking of? he cant play great defense, and his movement isnt the best...but other than that, he has shown the ability all over the court.

as far as the groundstrokes are concerned berdych does hit the ball flat, and doesnt use the slice. but nearly all of the players play one style.

for example, safin is considered to be multi, but he hits the ball very flat and rarely hits the ball with much topspin at all. In fact, many of the great have had a traditional way of hitting the ball. sampras eastern fh meant he hit fh's with very little spin. So is he one dimensional too?

if you are talking about the ability to strike the ball differently, only federer and nalbandian are the top players who can do this. if you talking about all-round ability, as in weapons vs weaknesses, quite a few have a multi-dimensional game.

Re: Video: Berdych saying Nadal one dimensional, Federer multidimensional after match

Perhaps the list would be shorter if we named those few players who weren't one-dimensional?

Berdych seems to have a personal vendetta against Nadal for some reason. Anybody know their history?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

I bolded that part of your post as that is what I feel many of here see as being one-dimensional. It doesn't have a set in stone meaning so it is easy to misunderstand what others are meaning. There are few players who don't play in one style. Safin, Federer, Nalbandian and just a handful of other players. That is what I interpreted as the meaning but if you disagree that's fine.

What Berdych means in the interview is that Federer can change his style to adapt to other guys games. Most players struggle to do this. It is probably as much about tactical nous as it is about ability and game. For instance, Nadal is clearly a better player than Murray but I would say Murray can adapt his game better and in a more clever way than Nadal.
