Ferrer is more clutch than most of the players on this list aside from Fedal + Djokovic.

Definition of clutch is coming up with something big on big points, be it serve, winner or controlling your own destiny.

Pete and Nole are definitely the two best that I can recall.

Whether you do it with serve or not doesn't matter...it's just whether you come up with the goods on the big points and especially in the big matches

ok

in that case

federer might be one of the best on hard court, but he's mentally weaker than an inbred infant

nadal deserves credit for adapting his game to the slow hard courts of AO and US in this era

it takes belief to do that

Default Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

I disagree that Djokovic on average is that clutch. In 2011 when he was coasting on a wave of confidence, yes. And facing a player who was panicking when his game was being deconstructed easily.

He is considered clutch because of 2 matches against Roger, where he was outplayed for most of the matches by Federer nowhere close to his best and just about managed to outlast the older guy. On the other hand, look at all the 7-5 sets he has been losing this year (generally when serving), in big matches: USO final, 3 at the Olympics, two against Tsonga and one against Nadal at RG, Rome. Might be others.

"Tough match?" World #3 Federer's ("greatest player to have ever played the game," you just said before rushing off the bathroom to change your underwear) H2H against World #58 Seppi is 6-0.

If it wasn't tough, Federer's victory would not be as glorious and godlike! Naturally, if Seppi and Isner were in Nadal's side of the draw, any victory that he managed to scrape out against these Tough Titans of Tennis would be pure luck!

Australian Open 2012?

One of the clutchiest, beastiest performances I've seen since Nadal AO 09

Nadal is so clutch that he's trailing 6-5 to an old washed up burntout bald clown
those Kneedullita tards never ceases to amaze me

This says a lot. Fed just let Nadull have that slam final. Nadull seems to be "clutch" where he has the natural advantage. Haven't seen him very clutch against Soda or GOATsol.

Bored to rank it but lets just say even the Djokovic soft 2.0 version is the most clutch player in the world...Clownga is pretty clutch too, too bad he's a nightmare on top and a limited player.

Ferrer and Nadal are similar players in terms of clutchness, not relying too much on serve but putting pressure on the opponent...Nadal is damn good as a front runner.

Federer`s mental strenth was underrated for his whole career. Nadal is the only one in this list who can compete with Fed in that department.
