Can't compare Federer with the likes of Laver since Fed's wins were all on green clay.

If he does, which isnt a given, it would mean nothing. Like i said Nadal has killed grass court tennis. There is no such thing anymore.

But not the same courts legends like Edberg, Becker, Sampras and McEnroe won, so shut the f*** up and go back to mommy's house, fanboy.

rafa is definitely top 10 grasscourt players all time, 3 wimbly finals, winning one of them, 1 queens title and a grass court winning record of 82%, compared with 83% for sampras and 87% for federer. facts are facts whether u like him or not or believe in conspiracy theories of this 'slow grass' bullshit, rafa is a great grass court player. u simply cannot change a natural surface. but i guess the conspiracy nutters still cling onto what some nutjob with too much free time said. they probably believe 9/11 was an inside job and humans didnt land on the moon and that big foot exists too.
people said borg could never be a good grass player and he won hardly ever coming to net, the rafa haters just cannot stand the fact that rafa wins on grass different from the traditional style which is more due to different balls and racket technology. but technology changes in every sport and as time goes by sport has to advance and cannot be stuck in the past.

There was a time when 3 of the 4 Slams were on grass. Rosewall won 6 grass court Slams, despite missing 11 years because he was a Pro. Therefore: Laver, Rosewall, Sampras, Borg, Federer, McEnroe, Newcombe, Edberg, Becker. More or less in that order.

Thats not the point. Fed can play grass court tennis, he showed that by serve and volleying Sampras off the court. No ways NAdal could have done that. You can keep coming back with irrelevant arguments but it wont help you much. You are wrong, thats all that matters.

I think Rafa has to win a few more Wimbys before we can put him in the top 10. There is many players with more Wimby titles then him.

dude just stop with these insanely idiotic conspiracy theories, stop believing these lunatic conspiracy theories. ur a crackhead for believing so many conspiracies.

Fact is you won't find a specialist claycourter capable of winning Wimbledon, just as you won't ever see Roddick make a RG semi-final. The difference between clay and grass today is huge, and you don't seem to understand that or want to understand that. Because you are a fool, you operate on emotion without the benefit of intellect.

yea maybe a couple more wimbys but i think he deserves a little recognition and respect.

Personally I think any one who puts Nadal in any top 10 grasscourt list deserves to be shot, but it's prior 2008 anyway. Someone like Philippoussis deserves to be ahead of Nadal on that basis.

When did Fed S&V Sampras off the court. I must have missed that one.

After some thought, I had to go back before 2001 when there actually was grass court tennis. Past the top three, really struggle with the order and would change it based on my mood. Really could not come up with a #10 really solid "GRASS" court player.

Sampras
Laver
Borg
Edberg
Becker
McEnroe
Newcomb
Ivanisevic
Conners

I don't think this ORGASMATRON character ever saw Sampras play :eek: or he's on drugs and thinks he's in a parallel dimension where grass doesn't exist anymore but existed when Federer was winning, thats what I've gathered from his illusions so far :D
