Things you don't like about your favourite player?

Nadal has always been my favourite player since he burst on to the scene. I have always disliked how long he takes to deliver a first serve. I also find his butt picking and subsequent smelling the...

Well of course Nadal vs Novak is a far better rivalry in terms of competition there is no doubt about that.

Excuses, excuses and just excuses.

The GS H2H is 6 matches on clay, 4 on HC and 3 on grass. Guess who is on on top even if we remove clay altogether?

This clay argument is the same BS that Federer...

Since Nadal is no longer any way near his prime it really doesn't matter now if Federer beats him. The time has passed for Federer to beat Nadal to prove a point. He has emphatically lost this battle...

Yes but 3 is still very much a material difference. Nadal should really win at least one more GS to stand alone on the 2nd spot to have a far better argument at being GOAT.

Quantity wise the biggest...

When you wanna talk about peak level of play then you only talk about the biggest matches because that's where a player performs at their peak.

Re: Former No.20 speaks - Djokovic is the best player in history

This thread is such a joke really.

First of all there is no such thing as "post 2011" being used as some sort of an argument because tennis didn't start in 2011 and neither did Novak's career. He...

Re: Which slam would you like Rafa to win next?

Why do people want the 10th RG? It doesn't change anything just because its double digits. The record of 9 GS is as secure as it gets. He is already the surface GOAT and nobody in sight is going to...

There can't be an objective way to determine it. But logic tells a 5 match sample is woefully small it doesn't even give the losing player a proper chance to work out the battle and try to fix things.

Re: There is no such thing as a bad match up.

Yes they are. I understand in tennis you won't find too many rivalries with double digit matches but in order to satisfy the ascertain of "consistently" beating you have got to have a big sample.

Re: There is no such thing as a bad match up.

Pretty small samples here except for Soderling vs Ferrer. You really need bigger samples to satisfy the criteria of "player A consistently beating player B".

Re: There is no such thing as a bad match up.

Except the fact that Davydenko did not "consistently" beat Nadal. It's 6-5 as immaterial a H2H "win" as it gets.

Only matchups with a good amount of sample matter.

Davydenko is the only player who is ahead of Nadal with a meaningful sample. And it's just a gap of 1 match. If Federer and Nadal were something...

No it can be said that a player is not able to realize their potential due to the variety of variables that can affect a player in team sports which are completely out of their hands.

Re: Is ferrer the greatest ever to never win a slam?

By this logic nadal is greater than federer no? Consistency is a very important part of someone's career and in determining who is "best".
