Nadal will get the Rafa Slam in Roland Garros when he lose to Djokovic again.

This is why stats like H2H and lost finals should be irrelevant for GOAT debate. Should Nadal have dropped in the QF against Berdych or SF against Federer to avoid possible finals with Djokovic and avoid getting beaten 3 finals in a row? Surely, a finals result is still better than losing in the QF or SF but now he has this ugly record and Djokovic is closer than ever to reversing their H2H. In the end, all that should matter are the titles really.

Tell that to the rafatards who keep pointing out those RG finals Fed lost to Rafa. Surely, if Fed was sent packing by a random in R2 his legacy would be shinier.

That was my point exactly... Federer fan here. Now Nadal tards are victim to the same H2H ploy they've kept harping on. I hope they've realized something by now.

I want to see Djokovic beat Nadal in Monte Carlo F, that is known as Nadal's confidence booster when preparing for his domination of the rest of the clay season.

Default Re: Rafael Nadal is first one who is 3 times runner-up in a row in GS finals!!!

Placing him miles ahead of all the other players but the winner of the 3 slams.

Another achievement yet for Rafael. Of the last 8 slams, he has played 7 finals. That's consistency for you. And he's won 3 of them.

Problem was Rafa hadn't lost a slam final since 2007, leading many of his fans into thinking that his reaching a final was almost synonymous with winning it. He would fail to reach the final in some slams, but if he made it to the last Sunday, it was almost in the bag. Before WB 2011, he won 10 out of 12 finals, an almost outrageously good result. Now his record is 10 out of 15, which is still exceedingly good (99% percent of pro players never get to play a slam final, let alone win one).

People trying to portray a RU into a failure are ridiculous. What would one have to say then of those who fell in the SF, QF, etc? That attitude can only be driven by sheer envy.

Excellent consistency from Nadal, he's reached the last 4 finals winning 1. This is way better than Roger Federer or Andy Murray and there is just one man ahead of him at the moment. Being the finalist the last 3 times is nothing to scoff at, in fact, it adds to Nadal's legacy.

You misrepresent the feelings of many Rafa fans, who never said the above in derision of Fed, but as an honour for Rafa, since beating prime Fed (2005-06-07) in slam finals was obviously far more prestigious than beating another player. Likewise, Nole fans can legitimately argue that Djoko's last 3 slams are more prestigious because he won them against Nadal, instead of against smaller players like Tsonga (AO 08) and Murray (AO 11).

Anybody trying to argue that those results are a dishonour for Fed or Nadal is, I agree, a tard.

Exactly. And Fed's superhuman 16 slams are enhanced by his total number of slam finals, in no way diminished.
