Re: Congrats Nadal but he PROVED its easier to win a career slam in this era.

if it was that easy to win a slam then why didnt more players win slams?

looks to me like its just the clay warrior and fed who have snatched up all the slams as far as the last 20,000 slams go.

the only exceptions being djokovic and d-pot.

No he wouldn't, the serving power of Sampras and Goran would have destroyed him. The surface of the past is faster then todays court, its a fact you can't ignore.
Serve and Volleyers in that era would never have given Nadal enough time to whip his forehand.
Not only that his ball wouldn't bounce as high as on todays courts.
He still would be competitive but winning wimbledon and Usopen back in that era with those courts, I wouldn't bet on it.

A glamorized clay courter with a clay court game primarily already winning a career slam by 24 years of age? That would have NEVER happened before. We all know it

We all know you are the greatest of all time, and Nadals career slam, even though you never got one, doesn't change that.

Well, we still remember it, asshole! GET OUT OF GM or put Rafito (preferably with USO trophy and No photoshop!) on your avatar and start praising his game! Especially since there is so MUCH to praise!

Re: Congrats Nadal but he PROVED its easier to win a career slam in this era.

no way nadal's game wins on 90s grass

just impossible

his forehand, his great weapon would be a HUGE liability, look at the way soderling dismantled it at RG by hitting deep and taking time away from rafa, now imagine that every round against players who would be able to outhit nadal in rallies

his backhand would be his best shot- though a great shot it is- it isnt good enough to win a slam on

he wouldn't get past the quaters in the 90s. and no way 90s sampras is losing a final to anyone on 90s wimbledon grass... not even roger

For no matter how long time and tennis history goes on people will always praise the past and how hard it was. People always thinks everything is way better in the past

Re: Congrats Nadal but he PROVED its easier to win a career slam in this era.

The OP is a joke. The only one that proved it's easier to win a carrer slam is Federer. His only major on clay came when the best player on the surface (Nadal) was injured. Nadal has won at least 2 majors on every surface proving his multisurface versatility, something Fed will never do.
