Re: Is Rafael Nadal Parera an underachiever?

Biggest myth in tennis must be Rafa's knee problems. How can you have chronic knee problems and still be ranked no.1 or 2 over five consecutive years? Cannot be very physically challenging this sport....

In some interview before the retirement Safin said about those whining that he's an underachiever that according to some he should've won 20+ GS and Federer 50+ GS or smth like that.

No.

He seems to have made the most of his tennis talent and physical attributes.

He may not have the talent of Federer and possibly 1 or 2 other players, but he certainly is the 2 nd best player of this century behind Federer. In many ways the injuries are the reality of the way he plays and it probably was unfeasible to remain fit all the time with the demands he places on his body.

Certain posters seem to be trying to edit history to place Nadal ahead of Federer.

Providing your attention span allows it, do some media research. You will find out that Federer is already acknowledged as GOAT or a strongest candidate for goat status by the vast majority of pundits and journalists.

Re: Is Rafael Nadal Parera an underachiever?

first this :

"Noserer is probably the LPOAT (luckiest player of all time). If he played in an era where players had balls and talent, he would have less than 10 slams."

then this :
"I guess it's too bad Nadal turned pro - Noserer would have won 20+ slams by now and 2 calendar slams back to back giving sycophants like yourself even more reason to kiss his ass."


Topsindoctor again showing here that he has intelligence of a chicken that is about to cross the road...

Re: Is Rafael Nadal Parera an underachiever?

why is this about Federer again?
I've said this before but I'll repeat it for those with little understanding: bashing Federer does not make Rafa great, and vice versa. Just as bashing evolution does not make Chrisianity true.

OT: no ofcourse he is not an underachiever. He won 11 slams, is the greatest claycourtplayer of all time. The guy is a legend...at 26.

You didn't answer the question at all. Seems to be a common theme with the Nadaltards.

When Nadal and Djoker reached their prime, he struggled to win 1 slam every year. It's easy to dominate when your "rivals" consist of Roddick and Hewitt.
So Nadal and Djokovic are allowed to reach a seeming "peak" yet Federer isn't allowed to have years where he has left his "peak" because fact is is Federer left his peak before Nadal/Djokovic started their peaks, so honestly your analysis is piss poor as usual. Your clownism becomes even more evident considering Roddick has a winning record over Djokovic, and Hewitt has a 3-1 record over Nadal on hardcourts and 1-0 on grass over Rafa, as in he had a 4-1 H2H record over Rafa at one point before Rafa only started facing an aging Hewitt on clay.. Hell, Hewitt should have taken that Hamburg match, but whatever. Either way, these "clowns" of Roddick and Hewitt gave Djokovic and Nadal a run for their money.

I think for some of them, it was not a choice; the fire in their loins/manginas was too powerful to resist. Becoming a Rafatard is not a rational decision for some, it's a decision made by the little head.

In any case, the effect of all those years Nadal spent at #2 behind Federer is the same: bitter-messed-up-irrational-Fedhating-Nadaltards.

All that hate comes from Nadal spending years at #2 behind Federer. Nadal handled it a lot better than his tards. Some of them are evidently still messed up, especially now that the GOAT is again #1 and that Nadal sits at #4, closer to the #9 spot than the #1 rank, occupied by Federer, the GOAT, current ranked #1. While Nadal is #4, 3 spots behind Federer.

You can't win with era tards because they are simply to dumb and bitter to understand logic. Greatness comes with having critics and haters. The more haters you have the greater you are.

he does have some weaknesses, that sometimes he hits the ball very short, can get pounced on by big hitters, his serve is not always reliable, and that if his movement is off very much in a match things can go badly for him because he relies on it so much.

I think he's achieved what is expected for his style and besides the AO 2012 he has won what he should. like many greats though, you can always say they 'could have' won more, which is shown in the cases of the finals he has lost at GS finals in Wimbledon and the Opens
