If I saw it twice, I'd call it unbelievable luck. He's done it too often for it to be a coincidence. Still, the lack of mental fortitude of the field today has also played its part.
yeah, but he didn't lose the final And not even nearly. Yeah, 4 sets, pfoe tight one.

How did those tight matches between Fedal end, Looner?

not sure what you've been seeing during federer-nadal matches, but the fact that nadal is mentally stronger than federer helped him win those close matches

rome 2006, roland garros 2006, wimbledon 2008, australian open 2009

about the only close match federer won between them was wimbledon 2007

Having an advantage on which you've worked for all your pre-pro career whilst watching said rival is not being clutch. Why was Nadal Rosoled if he was so clutch, eh? It's a pointless argument.

Tailor made threads for Nadal are hilarious.

it's easy to be mentally strong on clay when you have no real rival

and your only rival is a hard court player who refuses to change his game while crying and insulting people in press conferences

success breeds confidence

it's no wonder that people think nadal is mentally strong, relatively

still, as i said earlier, the answer is djokovic

Yeah he wasn't mentally strong in the greatest match of all time. He wasn't mentally strong on hardcourt every time he thumped the 'hardcourt GOAT'

Really has it come to this MTF with the Nadal hate? One thing that nobody would be able to hate on would be his clutch factor, can't believe what I'm seeing. Should've known better

Saying Djokovic is #1 is fine with me, that's reasonable as well. But saying nadal isn't clutch, and even that Federer is above him... just wow

1. Djokovic
2. Nadal
3. Del Potro

Anyway, none have anything on Sampras when it comes to this. That guy was a mental beast

when did i say federer was above him?

i put nadal at 2 earlier, and federer at 10

2 is higher than 10

you need to look up the word hate

nadal is a victim of circumstance when it comes to the clay

wins loads of titles, but no real, strong rival on the stuff
