Default Who is mentally the strongest player?

So who's the strongest mentally? Who is the biggest fighter?
Who can take it on the big points?

Default Re: Who is mentally the strongest player?

To stay physically strong, and consistantly make it through all those rounds of GS tourneys, and never getting upset early, for 23 straight and counting, 18 of 19 finals, you have to say Federer.
To see him getting raked over the coals against Davedynko, and hear him afterwards saying how he just said to himself, "the shadow will be gone soon, and Dank won't keep playing at that level, and even if I have to come back from 2 sets down I can still do it..." and then do it!
That takes an amazingly strong self belief and determination.

Fed and Nadull, after these 2, I would put Murray, Del Pony and Duck in another bracket.

After all, the guy has won a slam. You can only do that if you have a certain mental toughness and determination. It is a big step to take mentally, and Murray, for example, isn't up to it yet (as much as I would like him to).

I'm not a fan of him, let's make that clear. But he has won 5 masters series tournaments, he has won the Masters cup, beat Federer in Basel. He has won the most matches of every player last year.
These are some results to be proud of.

Have to admit he can be quite incosistent sometimes, that's why I didn't vote for him myself.

Rafael Nadal. His mental game is invincible.

Of others that I have seen, Pete Sampras and Michael Chang.
