If Only They seperate Federer and Djokovic in the Draws till that time Nadal will keep coming in the FInals. And those who argue that Nadal will have better off Federer anyway, No thats not right. It depends upon surface to surface. On Clay he will be . But on other surfaces Federer has equally good Chance.

It's a good point - just like Federer could imagine how many more slams he'd have won but for Nadal (including calender slams), then Nadal recently must have thought but for Djoko's "gluten" transformation he'd probably be on 14 slams now ....... and on course to overtake Federer.

Probably just as well, tennis is boring when someone is totally dominant.

Nadal's 5 is currently 3rd on the list in the Open Era behind Federer's 10 and 8.
Djokovic's 4 is currently tied for 4th in the Open Era with Laver and Agassi.

Best in history

8 Roger Federer (SUI).... 2008 RG - 2010 AO
7 Jack Crawford (AUS).... 1934 AC - 1935 WC
6 Don Budge (USA)......... 1937 WC - 1938 USC*
6 Rod Laver (AUS).......... 1961 WC - 1962 USC**
5 Fred Perry (GBR).......... 1934 WC - 1935 WC
5 Frank Sedgman (AUS). 1951 USC - 1952 USC
5 Fred Stolle (AUS)......... 1964 WC - 1965 WC
5 Rafael Nadal (ESP)....... 2011 RG - 2012 RG
4 Lew Hoad (AUS).......... 1956 AC - 1956 USC

4 Andre Agassi (USA)...... 1999 RG - 2000 AO
4 Novak Djokovic (SRB)... 2011 WC - 2012 RG

*Don Budge had 6 consecutive Wins in those finals including a Grand Slam.
**Rod Laver had 4 consecutive Wins twice for two Grand Slams.

Look here, you can't argue in one post that Nadal's legacy can be discarded because it is overwhelmingly only on clay, and in another post that his wins are due to homogeneus surfaces. If they are as homogeneous as you would have them, why has Rafa 7 FO but only 2 Wimby's and 2 HC slams?

Make up your mind and choose either of your arguments. That would do tons of good for the logical rationality of your posts. The alternative is that you keep on being perceived as just a hater clutching at straws.

in Borg's and Connors's case you can't really consider it meant skipping a tournament : very few players played the Australian Open and Connors was forbidden to play Roland-Garros.

In my opinion skipping Borg and Connors because of that is deeply stupid because it's actually more difficult to do it when you have to do it on a longer spare of time. Except if it was a case like a player who is ciompletely unable on clay skipping a claycourt tournament ... but that was not their case.

90s might be overatted but at least you had to adapt

Do me(or yourself) a favour; actually watch a couple of Rafa's matches during this Wimbledon, preferably in the early rounds. Do it with a non-hate filled, analytical eye and an open, objective mind then come back here and write what you HONESTLY see. I won't tell you what to look for but since you allege to know so much about Tennis, and how it's played on grass, you should know.

The irony in your statement is that Rafa is actually the only guy, of the three, who changes his game from clay to grass and would actually be a whole lot more successful on hard courts if he would change a few aspects of his game there too. Federer and Djokovic(more so djokovic) play the same way on all surfaces. No change in their playing style. Picking on Rafa is unfair since he seems to be the only one who is, noticeably, adapting his game.

A disgrace for tennis. But 3rd place really suits nadull. Roger with 8 and 10 consecutive finals (you might wanna add 18 of 19 slams finals). There hasn't been greater consistency in the men's game.

nadull's run will end on the us open this year methinks (unless the courts are still slow as ass).

Unless you think djokovic will be able to save MP regularly... He was lucky in both matches to have come through.

Hypothetical scenarios aside, Nole and Rafa have contested the last 5 slam finals. Until proven otherwise they remain the favourites to compete in the next 5 especially given that they are so far ahead of the rest of the chasing pack. If opponents can't even beat them when they're not playing well (hence all those MPs) what chances do they have when Rafa and Nole are at their absolute best ? Zero.

They can be the favorites, but your point was that there is no one to challenge them. Facing, and saving, multiple match points is a pretty good challenge.

That would be 10 consecutive DjokeDal GS finals between Wimbledon 2011 and USO 2013, it just doesn't sound realistic. Even 3 in a row never happened before, 10 is just too much.

I think we will see at least one different finalist this year at USO or Wimbledon.

I can't see Nadal or Nole been beaten at either Wimbledon or the USO if both are playing at anything more than 75%.

Nadals serve and backhand have improved immensely from 2011 this year and i think that will ensure he'll be very hard to beat in the remaining two slams. The australian open is where Nadal struggles the most and can be beaten by an on fire Tsonga/Murray before the final.

But seriously Nadal and Novak are so far ahead of anyone - it really would take an awful performance for them to be beaten over 5 sets if they both maintain their current levels. Nothings going to stop them reaching the next few slam finals if they both remain focused and hungry - they are unbeatable over 5 sets when they play close to their best.

Except of course when playing each other.

Talk about irony, idk how atleast 50% of MTF is really convinced that Fed will win or have big chance to win slam. He hasnt wont a slam for 3 years in a bit and ppl are sure he is even favorite sometimes over Joker and Nadull. Not sure if delusional or not following tennis for last years.

Nadal has 5 consecutive finals and 8/9 since FO 2010 - the only one he missed was where he got injured in the QF against Ferrer at the Aus Open... This is a ridiculous level of dominance from the top 2.

When Fed was dominating like that Nadal still was inexperienced on grass and HCs. For both Novak and Rafa to be so consistent is quite something.

Still, would be surprised to see Nadal/Novak again in two weeks time - one of them will be upset at some point. If not here then definitely US Open where a lot more players can beat Nadal.

Connors and Borg made 5 and 6 each but no every tournament played

actually I checked : it's 6 for each of them ;)

Borg 6 in 1980-1981 just before retiring (didn't take part in the Australian open like nearly all top-players in that time)

Connors 6 in 1974-1975 (he played the Australian open but not Roland-Garros because he had lots of money concerns with the president of the French Tennis Federation : his achievement is not as good as Borg's because he was not as good on clay as Borg was on grass, however he definitely was able to reach RG finals in those years)

I am not saying Connors' achievement was as good - after all, a lot of players missed the AO, making it easier to reach the final there, but he did at least have clay in his series. US Open 1975-77 was held on clay.

He's been in more HC slam finals & won more HC slams than Roger has in the same period. :wavey:

As for the Nadal not being good on HCs in 2004-7 it wasn't a slight on Roger -- I was simply saying that at the time that Roger was so consistent Nadal wasn't at that level on all surfaces so you couldn't have the top 2 players BOTH dominating all surfaces - you had Nadal dominant on clay & Roger dominant everywhere else. There was a bit more variety at the slams. In contrast. Nadal/Novak the last 2 years has been different as they've both been very consistent at all the slams at the same time - that's unique.

It's so extremely difficult making final after final after final. This should put into perspective for Federer fans and others just how difficult it was to reach 18 out of 19 finals, 10 finals in a row and then another 8 finals in a row, 23 straight SFs (winning 20), 31 straight QFs, and so on.

What are you crying about now fella? Nadal was just exposed for the disgusting cheat that he is by a journeyman. If he wins 50 more slams the tennis world will judge him for his antics today.But of course he aint winning that amount of slams.

he for sure won't cry, why should he? After all 11 slams is not that bad.

Interesting distribution.

We'd expect to see it peak around 7-8, with it tapering off at the ends. Instead we see it exactly inverted, with 20 percent saying he'd get 11, but only 5 saying he'd get 9.

We all know Rafa is superior to Federer on clay. You can argue that Nadal is better or more dominant on clay than Federer on hard/grass. But there are more important tournaments on hard grass, you have to live with it:D

Apart from that Nadal got 2 huge wins over Federer (wim2008 and AO 2009). Along with the AO2008 loss to Djokovic they were the first signs of Federer losing his domination on grass/hardcourts that he had since Wim2003. But Federers peak (Wim2003-USO2007) is still by far the longest and most dominant peak on hard/grass in the entire open era, and Nadal didn't beat him at a hard/grass slam in that period.:worship:

And what is that about clay - isn't clay a tennis surface? You know that outside of hardcourts Federer's record aainst Nadal is even more atrocious! There are NO excuse for being owned that badly!

Well, that is true, but neither one of them is considered the GOAT, right? I know that Becker had something like +15 record over Edberg which did not discredit Edberg's achievements. But, again, Edberg is not considered the GOAT. The GOAT cannot be owned.

Player A is beaten by player B, player B is beaten by player C, player C is beaten by player A. Who is the 'greatest'?

And what is that about clay - isn't clay a tennis surface?
Clay is a tennis surface, but the point is that no one single person is the greatest on every surface. The 'all surface GOAT' doesn't exist.

To say Federer is the GOAT is just to say that he has the best results overall. He has poor results against the greatest player on clay. Again, to be clear Nadal is a much better claycourt player. He is just not (yet) as as successful as Federer on hard and grass.

On hardcourts the H2H is 6-5 in Federer's favour, and on grass it is 2-1.

Absolutely, Federer is more successful than Rafa in terms of achievements, I have never said the opposite. As a Rafa supporter since 2005, I am extremely happy with what he has won with hard work and determination throughout the years. The 5 consecutive GS finals is no small feat either.

Federer is one of the greatest players to ever play the game and so is Rafa!
