Wait a second. Nadal is an 'all-court player'?? WTF? The man can't even step foot on a hardcourt without his knees dropping off.

Djokovic and Murray are by definition all-court players. It just happens to be that Federer is amazing on grass while Nadal is unbeatable on clay.

2 Wimbledon titles and 3 more finals.
1 AO title and 1 final
1 USO title and 1 final

Yeah, that doesn't look like an all court player at all


Tell me, what are Murrays and Nole's grass and clay credentials?

1 slam and 2 finals between the two of them.

No, because Federer was. And as for the clay court specialist part, look above at the numbers. So disrespectful you two with these comments

Nolandy strikes back. Fedal has no chance in 2013.

Well, they can have a good rivalry but I think that Federer has chances in WB and USO and Nadal will be fine at Roland Garros (and we will see later on Wimbledon and USO). Now they are the most consistent players on the top four but I don't see in both a domination like Fedal.

There's no option for Djokovic dominating alone.

Or Djokovic and Nadal.

I refuse to talk about Murray dominating the slams until he wins a few more. He's only got one, guys... Steady on...
