Re: Who is the Usain Bolt of tennis?
Physically, Nadal - but how good would Bolt be if he were to run sideways instead of a straight line?
Maybe the better comparison is in terms of mental strength, and resilience. In terms of mental strength, Nadal has a shot. In terms of resilience over time - given the limit in the prime age of a hundred meter athlete, Bolt's back-to-back gold is comparable to Roger's resurgence to #1 when no one expected that.
Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no color in anything, except the posters that were plastered everywhere. The black mustachioed face gazed down from every commanding corner. There was one on the house-front immediately opposite.BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption said, while the dark eyes looked deep into Winston's own. Down at street level another poster, torn at one corner, flapped fitfully in the wind, alternately covering and uncovering the single word INGSOC. (1.1.4)
