Re: Would Nadal be as successful in the 90's?

Again, which era are you talking about? The one of Borg, who won Wimbledon 5 times in an era of fast grass? The one of wilander, who won at least 2 slams on each surface despite the fact that he...

Re: Would Nadal be as successful in the 90's?

70's : Borg, Vilas
80's : Wilander
90's : Muster, Bruguera,Kuerten (end of the 90's)

Players who have clay as their best surface have always been a force. And a player who was born to be a champion...

Re: How do you guys think Nadal would do in green clay?

He would be the favourite, especially in a best of five. The other players would have more chances than at RG though.

It's a pity that the surface has almost disappeared. I don't know how it feels...

Simon is a real cutie. I still like Rafa's looks better though.

Re: The best looking current player?

I don't find him ugly at all. I find him completely average (he's really the definition of "average looking man" for me). Ultimately, tastes are tastes, it's true. But I really can't see how MANY...

How the hell can Djokovic have so many votes? :confused: Are some of his fans so obsessed that they take a dozen accounts just to vote for him in this thread? Because I really can't see how he can't...

Re: Yevgeny Kafelnikov: "Rafa the best thing that happened to men's tennis"

His lasso is to die for and his game is a thing of beauty for many people. Too bad that you are too much of a purist to enjoy it. :)
And if you want epic battles, he's the one.:worship:

Re: Who has the best serve out of Nadal, Djokovic and Murray?

Generally speaking and without isolated some exceptionally brilliant or dark period:
1. Murray
2. Djokovic
3. Nadal

Murray doesn't get as many first serves in as Nadal, but when it's in, his serve...

Re: Can clay warrior take the next step in GOATness and defend a slam outside of Pari

I couldn't care less. I would love to see him defend all his titles next year because it would mean an incredible year. For the rest, I don't care. He has nothing to proof with this: being able to...

Re: Federer playing 4 tournaments in 5 weeks?! Will he skip Stockholm?

Before saying such stupid things, does it enter your mind that Nadal's season could have been compromised if he had finished the match? His knees were in such a bad state that it could have been...

Re: Poll: Could 2010 US OPEN Nadal ever have beaten 2004-2008 US OPEN Federer?

Of course, he would. Given their history, no doubt. Nadal was a man on a mission in this USO. And Federer can't stop that Nadal.

Re: Why Rafa fans hate Del Potro?

I'm a Nadal's fan and I don't have any problem with Del Potro. I'm not a fan of his game, but that's all. I doubt that many fans hate him because he beat Rafa at the USO last year. Federer or...

Re: What does Nadal have to do to be successful on fast hardcourts?

His serve doesn't worry me too much. He said he didn't practice too hard to avoid the abdominals problems he had last year. I think he has a good chance to find it this week. We'll see. The backhand...

Re: Is it harder to win GS or WTF?

Like you said in your previous post, it depends on the surface players like to play on. Nadal is at his best on clay and his worst surface is Hard Courts, especially indoors. And since Hard Court...

Re: Best Player Never To Win A Slam?

It's between Rios and Corretja for me. Mecir was great too. Nevertheless, Murray is the best player without a Slam, but he has many more years. I hope he gets one or more (but not now ;))

Why do I like the WTA less than the ATP? Because there is no Gabriela Sabatini anymore. Bring her back! :p

Re: Kafelnikov " Kuertens's Peak would beat Nadal"

Kuerten at his best would beat an average Nadal, it's true. But peak Rafa beats peak Guga easily, and an average Nadal beats an average Kuerten easily as well.
Rios could beat anyone, his only limit...
