Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist

Read it and Weep, Federistas.
Read it and celebrate Rafa fans and fans of the truth.
This is from the Economist, one of the most trusted magazines in print.

I won't be doing any arguing or any back and forth on this, just wanted to put it out there for everyone's education.

Oh, good stuff! plagiarizing RAFAism's 'adjusted slam count' thread hidden away in The Ruins.

Re: Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist


This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Re: Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist

Oh no, Federer has been exposed. It's all over, this thoroughly researched scientific article has provided irrefutable evidence that Fraud is a weak era champ. Also thank you OP , for not reducing to our level. You GOATdal fans are superior. All hail GOATdal, #moralwinnerforever #neverfacedaneasydraw #19out19areallfakeslams

Re: Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist

Lets not forget how @Roxitova as well complained about bashing other players and fanbases when she first came back on here a month or so ago... how the mighty have fallen

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

At majors, the Spaniard has faced the other three members of the Big Four 13% of the time, and won a remarkable 74% of those meetings. In contrast, Mr Federer has played his Big Four peers in just 9% of his grand-slam matches, and won only 42% of them.

Re: Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist

I think the articie is being kind to Fraud. RAFAism did a way better job.

Re: Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist

Basically this article copied the great RAFAism but is just making it sound long and more eloquent? Okay

This USO was a freebee, but Rafa did beat prime Djok in 2013. Did Fraud ever beat prime Djok on hard in a slam? Honestly can't remember.

Re: Sorry Mr. Federer from the Economist

So in short, Rafa beat prime Djok on hard, but Fraud didn't. Good to know.

To be fair all of the "lucky Nadal" threads and the "Nadal in Federer's shadow" nonsense should be put in the ruins, they are merely bait and quite pathetic.

However I really implore you to drop the Roxitova-esque "reliable news" source and read post #5 (my own). The Economist is not there to make judgements but to apply economic theory to real-life examples to educate economic-minded students etc. May of these theories, particularly game theory, are controversial and disputed (indeed the Nash Equilibrium used in this article was not even verified as a hard theory for nearly 15 years). Plus, at some point a human mind has had to assign a judgement value, this is open to debate. This article does use stats to its credit but you can never truly gauge the context i.e the age gap and Fed playing the Big 4 past his prime whilst there were in his peak

My point is that it's a ridiculous debate and articles like this fail to improve its credibility, despite the desperate attempts of Roxitova, a poster who will bait and then fail to back it up with debate...

Do they really tell the story though when context is removed?

I have to admit I am disappointed with this thread. We all often disagree on this forum but I at least have always credited the majority of posters from all quarters to be intelligent. The first thing I was taught at high school was that you cannot believe everything you read in the written press and take it for granted

You mock but those things actually happened, in 08 and 13.
