Nope! It's a Federer forum, as evident from the most favorite players thread Also there's an F for Federer in MTF

He'd probably lose in the first round.

Usually takes him a few matches to get into a good rhythm.

Baby rafa beaten prime coria on extensive 5 sets. Dont wanna think what would do a prime rafa to prime coria, let alone what he would do to kuerten. Now about borg is too hard, we dont know how he would perform on modern tennis.

Default Re: Could a prime Rafa win Roland Garros with this draw from hell?

I think many are missing the point and looking at each match in isolation - there's a thing called fatigue. It would be a huge achievement for anyone to go through a draw like that all the way. I'd give Nadal 5% chance, he would have to be somewhat lucky to not lose many sets, if he gets too many long matches he would be toast.

Even giving him the first two rounds and making him a 2:5 favorite for the last five rounds, taht gives him not even a 20% shot.
Reality is probably under 10%


If anyone could do it it's Rafa. But I doubt he could.

3rd Round vs. Juan Carlos Ferrero
4th Round vs. Thomas Muster
Quarterfinas vs. Andre Agassi
Semi-finals vs. Gustavo Kuerten
Finals vs. Bjorn Borg

Could the CLAY COURT GOAT take out all these clay court specialists en route to a Roland Garros trophy?
Mug draw. I'm guessing Rosewall, Laver, Vilas, Wilander, Lendl, Courier, Bruguera and Kafelnikov are all in the other half. Uncle Toni fixed this one too.

They'd forfeit their matches in front of his powers of physical recuperation and durability.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

2008 version of Rafa was even more dominant at Roland Garros. The whooping some of those players received, including Verdasco, Almagro, and Federer. Total domination.

If he went through this draw 5 times, I'm willing to bet that he would win at LEAST 3 out of the 5 times.

So 4/5 is likely, and 5/5 is doable.
