the poll result is right......nadal will be physically and mentally ready to fight for 7 hours if needed in a french open final.......that itself breaks the will of the opposition.......that is why defeating nadal in a french open final will be widely regarded as the toughest task in tennis.......

Federer's made 7 Wimbledon Finals, Nadal 5 RG Finals, Djokovic 2 AO Finals...

Can't be compared? :shrug:

Do you mean since 2005?

If that's the case, then I'd go with Djoker & Nadal. They've yet to be defeated in their respective finals :)

Can't go for the whole task right away. First a player must find a way to lose a set to Murray in a slam final :clap2:

yeah i know that Soderling isn't doing any better :worship:

Nadal has the edge here in terms of invincibility and based on the date window having never lost in 5 finals. Federer with 4 final wins and only 1 defeat is not far behind. Djokovic needs to reach a few more finals at the AO to make a 5 final minimal comparison and win at least 2 of them.

The toughest task in tennis is probably losing to Yen-Hsun Lu on clay. Congrats Verdasco for achieving that.

The answer is beating Nadal in RG. Its obvious since he is the most dominant of the 3 on his strongest surface.

But stupid thread anyway...there isnt a question about the result of the poll, so you probably just wanted to get some compliments for your boy Rafa.

Nadal in RG, by far.

Unless you include Murray winning a GS fin.......well, Murray winning a set in a GS final.

even that can be achieved only after overcoming the great clay gladiator in the best of 5 sets format on red clay of roland garros......

the thread is not retarded, but your skewed view is......i have an even more tougher task than what you said......and that is winning the cyggs and then backing it up with a cygs......somebody will then come and say cyggs, cygs and another cygs......what will you say then? how about taking the thread in the manner it was meant to be?

Clearly Rafa's feat. Only one player has beaten Rafa at the French in any round - and I'm pretty sure that player won't even be in the draw this year. No matter how Novak has played against Rafa in the last year or so, until they meet at the French Open it will always feel like "yes but Rafa rules at Roland Garros".

:lol: SDG fishing for praise for Nadal. Probably should have asked "Who is/was the best clay court player since 2005, with a surname stating with the letter N, who's also a butt-picker?"

Wimbledon and Fed, Nadull has just had a endless stream of chokers since 2005. Pure fluke imo

Mark Lenders
04-19-2012, 09:57 PM
What's the point of this thread? The answer is very obvious.

Nadal in Roland Garros won 6 finals without ever going to 5 sets and lost none.

Federer won 6 Wimbledon finals, but lost one to Nadal and got taken to 5 by Roddick, and also struggled greatly against Roddick in 2004.

Djokovic won three finals in Australia, but he only crushed Murray. His final this year vs Nadal was an incredible war of attrition. His 2008 final vs Tsonga was extremely competitive, Nole was just a bit more clutch on big points. That was my favorite Slam final in the past few years, superb tennis from both guys, extremely entertaining.


The answer is quite obvious: beating Nadal in the RG final has so far proved to be a far sterner challenge.

This is a most one-sided thread. Why would be a super-human task to defeat players in a final who have already been defeated in lesser instances? Then Söderling, Tsonga or Pedro Perez are the super-heros of tennis since 2005, because it is more difficult to defeat any given player in QF than in F.
The toughest task in tennis since 2005, or since 2012 for that matter, is to break the big records that have been established by brilliant and hard-working champions.

nadal obviously

although i'd say in the last 20 years beating pete on wimbledon fast grass would be harder than beating rafa

pete won a final whilst taking injections in his knee- he just toughed it out- what mental strength

nadal has played with damaged knees but his level significantly drops
pete could hold his serve no matter what

musters insane finals record should be up there too

not even close, Nadal duh! but we all know you made this thread, startdagame, just so we would all say how great Nadal is. he's a legend, nothing left to prove, his supremacy at ROland Garros is unmatched by any player at any slam.

Nadal and Federer both have great legacies at Roland Garros and Wimbledon but Djokovic cannot be considered that great yet at the Australian Open. gotta win a few more.

This.

The Clay Monster will be holding down the fort for this most precious of all the Slams, and anyone in his path to recapturing the most illustrious achievement for all Spartan Warriors, the Sacred Dirt of Roland Garros, HAS to be PREPARED for the inevitable lesson in humility and learn to appreciate the fact that they are simply getting the chance to get the best seat in the Stadium to see this genius play on the opposite side of the net.

This year may end up showing Rafa at his BEST as well. Rafa was clearly BORED going to play his matches at RG every day, just to end up seeing Muger "Ballerina" Frauderer accross the net on Sunday every slam and pummeling that listless buffoon into submission. :mad: Now Rafa has a cause, actual goals, and he will thrive off them when he meets Nole 2.0 in the Final.

great post as usual, ms. machael.....it's just pathetic that some people can't take the thread in the manner which it was meant to be.....just because nadal has an overwhelming poll result, the thread has to be crap.....what insane logic......and these are the same clowns who preached not so long ago that fed was greater than sampras on grass.....where is that argument now?

Before 2010 i would have gone with Roger at Wimbledon. But his last 2 results there haven't been up to his outrageous standard, so the answer is without a doubt Rafael at Roland Garros.
