Default Konstantinos Economidis will challenge Federer

Many posters have followed some type of transitivity argument to substantiate their opinions. In short, if player x wins against player y and player y wins against player z, then player x wins against player z. Most recently I saw that in the thread about young players to challenge Roger: The argument was that since Djokovic lost to Safin easily then Djokovic will not be able to challenge Roger in the future. My contribution to this transitivity type of reasoning will be to provide proof that the Mighty Konstantinos Economidis http://www.atptennis.atponline.net/e...,+Konstantinos
will emerge as the next challenger to Roger. Here is the evidence:

Economidis-Monaco, J. (2002, Jamaica Futures) 2-6, 6-3, 6-3
Monaco-Costa, A. (2005 Buenos Aires) 7-5, 6-4
Costa-Federer (2004, Rome) 3-6, 6-3, 6-2

Thoughts?

My thoughts? That Costa won't beat Federer ever again...

You can never say never, but i tend to agree. However, you can pick any player that may beat Federer and i will find a finite path that connects him to Economidis. I chose Costa because it takes only 2 transitions. (Costa-Monaco)

Default Re: Konstantinos Economidis will challenge Federer

I found even stronger evidence that i missed during my first, superficial search:

Economidis-Nadal (2001, Barcelona, Ch. Qualifier R3): 3-6, 6-3, 6-3

This is not from the ATP site, since they don't have qualifiers, source is
http://www.tennisfacts.com/p1/E/A2439.htm

The evidence is now irrefutable: Economidis has won against Nadal on clay, something that Roger has not done so far.

I doubt Konstan can become more popular than Adam Chadaj - and he's certainly not as sexy as Andy Murray -, but yeah, it's fair to see Federer should retire now, if he wants to avoid the humiliation of being demolished on a regular basis by Econo.

I prefer Vasilis Mazarakis personally to Economidis, but Konstantinos will revolutionise tennis.

Oh, I posted the same photo twice.

I will find the second one later... there were two links, but I clearly blanked there.
