Always wondered why when Roger is dominating the field, its a weak era, but when Rafa dominates on clay, he is the greatest Spartan clay warrior king of all time

Amazing record though, not just 8 titles, but 8 consecutive

It's only Nadaltards that say that. Us Fedtards are smart enough to respect both sides.

For those who didn't see(or believe this incident, whatever you say) it. Watch this video from 1:12 mins.

Incredible record. Whether or not people hold this tournament in high regard or not, it just shows how dominant the Spaniard is on clay.

It's weird to think that Sampras was just one Krajicek away from doing the same thing at Wimbledon.

He didn't though. You could say Nadal was one Soderling win away from having won RG 7 in a row - a much more physically demanding slam and one with far more specialists on the surface than on grass.

Same for Fed - he could have won US Open 09 and maybe even 10 - he was very close. He'd have had 7 in a row there.

The reason the 8 is so impressive is precisely because he's not had one bad day - and to me it's tougher in a best of 3 in some ways as it's easier to be upset by a hot opponent. If you're as great as Sampras was at Wimby or Nadal at RG then it's more of an achievement to beat you there than in a best of 3 event on grass/clay - the fact that Nadal hasn't lost 2 sets in a match at MC over 8 years is astounding. He's not even been close to losing. Been taken to a deciding set 4 times and won that 6-1 three times I think. The closest was Gasquet in 2005 (6-3/6-4 in the final set I think....).

It's a perfect match of man and surface. Since 2007 he's lost 2 sets - one to Djokovic, another to Murray.

It's not about saying that 5 Wimbledons or 5 US Opens in a row aren't impressive - they are. But winning 8 in a row of anything, in any sport is nigh on impossible.

Yes, good post. Nadal's domination at Monte Carlo is unprecedented in any tournament in the Open Era.

If it's so easy then how come some of the supposed all time greats fail at RG? If all it takes is to run down the ball, you'd think they'd be able to win at least one.

in the 90s grass and fast courts in general had more "specialists" than Nadal has had to face on clay.
