Nadal doesn't care about AO, it's the least important major. This MM tournament should be thankful Nadal even made an effort to snatch the title against Olderer in 2009 just to give a little reputation that a spartan GOAT like him care.

He just had a very Good Clay Season. And in any year that is expected of Rafael Nadal. So that doesnt make him Best Player of 2012.

You need to play at a high Level throughout the year. He doesnt even Qualify for it because he hasnt player throughout the year.

Ridiculous Thread.

Nadal's win percentage (when healthy) in 2012: 100%

That is the record that is going to last for centuries.

For many years now all the top players go and play in Australia. And, since it's the first major of the year, most players are rested and haven't picked any injuries. So the Australian Open has actually a stronger field than the other majors. It's tougher to win it.

It's true that every player dreams with winning Wimbledon, because of its history and tradition, but in terms of how hard it is to win a grand slam, I can see no reason to say that one is more difficult than another. To say one of them is less important is, in my opinion, subjective judgement.

We can go back to substance of the thread. Are we doing this in order? So we'll have Ferrer and Berdych next?
>why do you say that the Australian Open is the least important major?

The importance or prestige of winning the tournament has nothing to do with Novak.

It boils down to tradition, remote location vs. participating player demographics, historical surface changes, and harshness of climate.

Respectfully,
masterclass

masterclass, it would appear as though you lost the plot here.

perhaps for both the first and last time, as i always consider you to be one of the best posters here.

djokovic, federer and murray all had better years no matter how you look at it, and depending on perspective, some others did too.

It boils down to tradition, remote location vs. participating player demographics, historical surface changes, and harshness of climate.

Respectfully,
masterclass
But that's my point: that those were factors in the past. In this day and age, remoteness of location is irrelevant: everybody's there, ready to start the season. I don't know what you mean about player demographics, but in the past 10-15 years I haven't heard of a single top player deciding not to play in Australia because it's too far or the climate is too harsh. Also, other grand slams have changed surfaces: the USO used to be played on grass and on clay. It has changed surfaces and that hasn't made it less important.

We have to move with the times: thhe fact is that nowadawys (not 40 years ago) all the players who can play, do in fact play. After an off season when they can heal injuries, relax, recharge batteries, tinker with their games, and start the new season full of enthusiasm. If anything, all players are even more competitive, ready to start the season on a good note, not tired or diappointed.

It has less tradition, it's true, but it's as important for players as any other slam, and fewer players pull out with injuries here than in the other slams, due to the position in the calendar.

I really don't think any of the reasons you gave are sufficient to consider it the least important grand slam.

Maybe you like watching it less... That's a question of taste. Not of intrinsic importance, in my opinion.

RG QF and SF alone is enough to make him the best player of 2012, and it almost certainly confirms his GOATness as well.

let's all bow down to magnificient Humbalito - the unbeatable and divine descendant of spartans. Too bad constant injuries are breaking down his body, otherwise the other mere mortals would not have a prayers chance against our humble hero. VAMOS!!!
