Who has more magic in his left foot, Rivaldo or Messi?
Messi has more magic definitely, Rivaldo has more sheer power (although quite a lot of magic as well).
I'm new here
Here are my questions:
1. How would 2011 Djokovic go up against Prime Federer (2004-2006) on all Grand Slams?
2. Since I've just started, what was the peak year or time of the heated troll, flames wars of the MTF forums?
3. Peak Del Potro (2009) vs Peak Nadal (2008,2012) at Roland Garros?
4. Do you find Lleyton Hewitt's playing style boring? How does it compare to Ferrer and him as player?
5. Who hits harder: Berydch, Del Potro, Tsonga or Soderling?
Welcome. I see you've been lurking based on your questions
1-Prime Federer would win everywhere (most of the time anyway), I believe, although not without difficulties on hardcourts and clay. Apart from being generally a better player, he's also a bad matchup for Djokovic with his variety, would never let Djokovic get into a rhythm. I believe Djokovic's best chance would come at the current AO courts (Plexicuxion, not Rebound Ace) where he can defend against Federer more effectively, but I'd still take Federer - in his prime he could make even very slow courts look quick with how early he took the ball and how clean he hit every time. Matchup advantage to Federer on all 4 Slams imo. Djokovic would have to play very differently from what he does now vs Federer to challenge him, waiting for Fed to eventually shank a shot is an effective strategy now for the most part, but it wasn't in his prime.
2-I've joined a year ago so can't really tell either, sorry.
3-Nadal would win in 4 tight sets most likely. Del Potro is a bad matchup for him (Nadal's topspin shots play right into his striking zone) and would definitely take at least a set assuming he's in his peak (so far anyway, hope his best is still to come), but Nadal would definitely grind him out over the course of a 5 set match. There'd be a better chance at an upset in a 3 set match. I believe it'd be similar to their 2011 DC match in Spain, only even higher quality since both were not in their peak at the time. It'd all come down to, unlike Del Potro, Nadal being supremely fit and capable of keeping up his level for 3,4,5 hours if needed.
4-No, Hewitt was a very complete player who excelled as a counterpuncher and played the percentages better than most (if not all) players in tennis history, I liked watching him play in his prime definitely. He's much better than Ferrer obviously, Ferrer is a marathon runner on the tennis court, Hewitt actually had a lot of court craft and was (still is) a pretty good tactician. The only similarity is that neither had big weapons to rely upon.
5-Del Potro hands down, he's perhaps the hardest hitter (consistently) tennis has ever seen. Del Potro >>> Soderling >> Berdych >> Tsonga in terms of power off both wings.
