Yeah... The GOAT (record holder on everything but clay) vs the clay GOAT (record holder on everything clay) with the dynamics involved. Surely this will soon be forgotten, overshadowed by the Rafa-Nole rivalry...

The GOAT made his competition look like mugs because he was so good. Don't get confused Topspinny. I know it's hard to keep track of these things when you don't know shit about tennis and is just here to troll.

Their matches are boring and neither (especially Murray, who is unlikable to most) transcend the sport itself like Federer and Nadal. Neither have that one signature shot or games that people follow and mimic. So the answer is no. And Murray still is looked at as little brother and he isn't at the level to create such dynamic rivalries.

When competition picked up in 2008, Noserer got destroyed time and time again. Just shows that he's the luckiest player of all time to face his bitch all serve Roddick, pusher Hewitt and random slam finalists like Mugzalez in slams. Of course Noserer fangirls will never admit that off clay Noserer never had a real rival, it's much better to plug your ears and scream "Noserer is GOAT" despite having grand slam giants like Nalbandian, Baldenko, Ljubicic and Blake in top 5 and his biggest "rivals" during his prime years

This is just a huge pile of fails... almost completely.

Federer made the tour look bad by beating everyone for years saved for one player on clay. Nadal cannot sustain such a dominant form, neither can No2e. His competition was not of a lesser quality, it was owned like never before or since for such a long period. Nadal and No2e would have less success would they be at their prime back in 2004-2007, less titles on grass and HC, less slam finals.

Thanks for not debating the fact that Nadal was not good enough to face prime Fed on his own turf and implicitly agreeing that this is the main reason Nadal has so many wins VS Fed.

Or field just sucked so badly that Olderer routined those mugs whenever he wanted to. I just cant belive that players like Davi , Boredo and Blake who were top players on that golden era were so dam good, especially Gonzales and Fatdatis. Oh and ofcours Fatbaldian. Olderer didnt had any rivals bar young Nadal who owned him in his prime. Olderer got lost when he started playing against non mug choker bending players.

Fedole is clearly the best rivalry. It is the top 4 combo that provides the best matches and to spice it up it is also the only combo where the players don't get along with each other.

Dull is being made to look good because he won important matches against past prime Fed and a weak era. If he was in his prime in Fed's prime he would have like 5 slams now. Also played in the slowest era in history. If he played in the 90's he'd have like 2 slams.

The opposition in Roger's prime would have been seen as better if it weren't for Roger because they would have won multiple slams.

No, not really. Fedal is slightly overrated and overhyped, but as such, it brought many fans to the sport and deserves much respect. For the quality of tennis itself Fedole is my favorite by far. Then Fedal, then Rafole. Noleray (or whatever) is better only than Murray-Nadal (every possible term for that rivalry sounds just plain stupid).

And as a Novak fan, I do get more excited when Novak plays Rafa, but much more enjoy matches vs Fed then vs Rafa.
