LOL..now that's funny. That's a quote from some hack on this site. Not anyone with any credibility. I'm not claiming to be an expert myself, but the the talk of Nadal's physical limitations were coming directly from credible folks in the game for years. I have yet to hear anyone with anyone creditably predict Nadal even in gerat health will win that many more French Opens.

Federer has reached 34 consecutive QF's.

Nadal has played in 33 slams total.

Says a lot.

Why is their even a debate?

17>11
6 or whatever YEC fed has > 0
77 > 45ish
Masters equal, fed has like 200 more weeks at no.1
More finals of GS, more Wimbledons etc etc

This is as one sided as those stupid Schumacher vs fangio debates

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

I don't think the debate is about 17 vs 11 because the numbers are clear. Federer has achieved more in the primary categories. Nadal has kept pace in the secondary categores.

I believe the debate has more to do with how can Federer be the best ever if he loses over 60% of his matches against his main rival. Roger has an excellent record against the rest of the field. Nadal has a great record against the rest of the field, but not as good as Roger. That being said, Rafa still has a better winning percentage.

What secondary categories?

Professional tennis is played mostly on HC, and yet most of Nadal's wins vs Fed (or anyone else) were on clay.

Rafa was a slam contender at all the slams from 2008 on (at least SF in every slam that year).
So if the Nadal-Fed h2h is so important, then Nadal should have stopped Federer from winning USO 2008, RG 2009, Wim 2009, Aus 2010, Wim 2012.
Then Fed would be on 12 slams, and Rafa on something like 16. In that case, the h2h would actually matter.

In real life, the h2h means nothing. Fed is clearly the better player, despite having a match-up issue.

Muzza has a winning h2h with Roger. Is he a greater player? Does it make Fed not the GOAT because of that?
Again, Muzz has never taken Fed out in a slam, so the h2h is almost meaningless.

Great comparison since 9:8 is the same as 18:10 including every surface in a Grand Slam

The moment Rafa-Fed H2H is mentioned Fedtards should humbly bow their heads,say "Too good", and walk away with the little dignity they have left.

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!
