What if Rafa has Ivanisevic's serve?

I know this is an utopic idea but if it would be like this according to me Federer would be beaten in 3 sets in Wimbledon final. I imagine Federer's helpless look at Rafa in the final if he would have Ivanisevic's huge lefty serve. All of Federer's beliefs of defeating Rafa on any surface would have gone in that match after such a defeat on grass especially in Wimbledon final:)))
What do you think of such a dream final?

Well ask yourself this first- what if you hadn't taken a leaf from Cash's book and smoked it before creating such a stupid thread?

Don't be angry. I opened this thread for having fun. Write something and we can laugh altogether. Don't take it serious.

You can't be tall and have a game like Nadal's. Case closed.

Nadal would beat him at worst 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.
Without the serve Nadal will beat him 7-6(12),2-6,7-5,5-7,10-8 ;)

What if Federer had Nadal's balls?

He would be the GOAT and a multiple RG champ.
He would play Spartan tennis.
Also, he would be a guy and dump Mirka and find someone hot.

What balls? You mean the balls to loop everything back into play? I don't think he would have achieved what he has now.

thsi is along the lines of what if Roddick had some groundstrokes, verdasco had a brain and Blake had some tactics

The balls

to play and win on clay.
to sacrifice your body to win.

I don't see what makes this worse than the majority of the crap in GM? It's actually one of the better ones lately.

There's a simple answer, though, he would probably be unbeatable.

Ivanisevic's lefty serve was nothing compared to Roscoe Tanner's.

He'd play so called 'Spartan' tennis, and have a shorter career with less slams (4 RG + 1 AO or something probably).

Right. 97 MPH. forehand returns are akin to "looping everything back into play." :rolleyes:

As for denying Nada's "balls," comments like yours make me think you own a pair of marbles yourself. Jealousy and inferiority complex being the root of them.

Get treatment ASAP. A transplant even. Obviously, they would be real, but they'd look like you have some.

Yup. If Nadal had that kind of serve, he would have relied on it too much and other parts of his game might have been neglected.

he would probably be injured as much as Goran and never achieve much.

:haha: Why do you feel the need to defend Nadal in all your posts? Calm down man, it's a message board. It's not like I'm the only one that bashes a player. If you can't deal with it, I don't know how you can come here.

Then he would be Goran. This raises an interesting issue though, if Rafa had a great serve (never mind Goran's serve) then he would not have developed his ground game as he did since winning free points from serve would reduce his incentives for doing so.

No? What about Stosur, one of the fastest serves in the women's game and only 175cm.

Women can't actually play tennis....though what they do is vaguely similar. Not fair to compare, at all.

Sexist pig. Stosur can serve faster than quite a few men in the ATP top 100, so I suggest that you keep your mouth shut.
