Re: Nadal unlikely to beat Federer's record now

Despite Nadal winning the semifinal, they both left as losers in the tournament. There was only one winner - and his name is not Nadal or Federer. That's all that matters. Do you honestly think Nadal...

Re: Another Federer - Nadal H2H thread...

No true Fed fan is delusional about Nadal being the better player (operative word) in their matches or when they have been matched up. Nadal is however not the better player (as of today) on the...

Re: Nadal has to tank the Clay Season if he still wants to be considered in GOAT race

Yes, Pete was nobody's punching bag as you said. However, he was punched out every year he played at the French Open. For someone good enough to beat all these Roland Garros champions, you will...

Re: Nadal has to tank the Clay Season if he still wants to be considered in GOAT race

I do realize that although I beg to differ. It was not only when Sampras closed on Emerson that this was said. Slams have always been relevant. Further, even though Borg and McEnroe may not have...

Re: AO Final: Stanislas Wawrinka def. Rafael Nadal 63 62 36 63

Wawrinka is the best player where? At this year's Australian Open - yes, he is. Nobody is taking that away from him and nobody should. The best hardcourt player just based on slams is Nadal so far -...

Re: Nadal's back injury, what caused it and how it will affect his games from now on?

First off, Nadal's style is not and will never be the style to beat for two reasons - it cannot be replicated due to the fact that most people play right-handed and there are few left handers. The...

Re: Nadal's back injury, what caused it and how it will affect his games from now on?

Well said..... although he was not injured. Would he have acted injured if he was up a set and a break? No, he won't. Nadal would have retired to show he was 'injured' but for two things:

1. It was...

Re: Had USO 13' sf's been flipped for Nadal/Djoko, would the outcome have been differ

Maybe or maybe not. Fortunately, we will never find out. Djokovic obviously played the tougher and more difficult semi. Everyone with an eye can see but he choked the final. He was up 4-0 or so in...

Re: Nadal has to tank the Clay Season if he still wants to be considered in GOAT race

Who cares what your H2H is against the top 50 or 1000 players if you are not the last man standing? Nadal has the best H2H most likely against the top 50 players but how does that matter? Is the top...

Re: Nadal has to tank the Clay Season if he still wants to be considered in GOAT race

Every spot is judged by winning the biggest tournaments there is - that is the source. Lebron has been the best player for years but until he won, no one cared. Same for Peyton Manning - best QB...

Re: Nadal has to tank the Clay Season if he still wants to be considered in GOAT race

Rafa is the better player in his matches against Federer but not the better player overall. No need to sell any delusion. Better play wins against everyone and is usually the last man standing at the...

Re: AO Final: Stanislas Wawrinka def. Rafael Nadal 63 62 36 63

Not sure I will say Djokovic was injured in this match. He was the better player in the first, Wawrinka in the 2nd and 3rd, Wawrinka at the beginning of the fourth before Djokovic turned it around....

Re: Nadal has to tank the Clay Season if he still wants to be considered in GOAT race

For the sake of the delusional Nadal fans, let's even say Federer is not the GOAT. What metric (other than Nadal having a great H2H against Federer) makes him goat? None. Greatness is not subjective...

Re: The truth about Federer's BH

Federer has a good backhand but not a great backhand - great slice, above average topspin. His backhand seems slightly old school and tailor made to take the ball early while robbing opponents of...

Re: How to beat Nadal and which players can do it?

Very well said, mate! The use of the slice which I recommended was on occasion, not regularly. Countless times, Dimitrov kept himself in Nadal's service games based on that even when out of position....

Re: How to beat Nadal and which players can do it?

Friend, I respectfully disagree with that on the shortening of rallies on Nadal's game. It is the useless myth created by Brad Gilbert and Patrick McEnroe. Unfortunately, it has benefited Nadal a...

Re: AO Final: Stanislas Wawrinka def. Rafael Nadal 63 62 36 63

Very well said! Nothing is guaranteed in life. Federer was supposed to beat Del Potro at the US and Nadal at the Australian in 2009 but lost. That's life and that's why the games are played. Won't it...

Re: Nadal's back injury, what caused it and how it will affect his games from now on?

Sophocles is right. Wawrinka was being nice to Nadal but everyone can see clearly he cheated. The third set won by Nadal - Wawrinka had maybe 5 to 6 breakpoints and lost most on errors. The service...

Re: How to beat Nadal and which players can do it?

Part of Federer's greatness is his arrogance and unwillingness to utilize a very obvious game plan against Nadal. Unfortunately, that is also what serves to impede him from near perfect greatness. If...

Re: How to beat Nadal and which players can do it?

I know the truth hurts. Nadal does have an above average game for a great. He is a great player but with an above average game. That's the truth. He has very great defense which helps with the...

Re: AO Final: Stanislas Wawrinka def. Rafael Nadal 63 62 36 63

Agreed. Nothing to feel bad about. What will be funniest will be if he never wins a slam again? They keep saying it's a given he will pass Sampras. Nothing is a given in a life. I wonder what his...

Re: AO Final: Stanislas Wawrinka def. Rafael Nadal 63 62 36 63

Really hope so too. Del Potro has the game to be #1 but must learn to navigate the early stages/1st week in all the slams.
