Just a quick reminder in case anyone forgot 😇

With the WTF surely not happening this year, and Nadal turning 35 next year, it is safe to say the Spaniard will never win an ATP Final tournament. Main reason: inability to adapt to fast indoor hard conditions.

This is easily the biggest flaw of the big 3, I think all tennis experts and most MTF users can agree to that.

Almost all legends have won it, some multiple times.

Roger Federer: 6
Ivan Lendl, Novak Djokovic, Pete Sampras: 5
Ilie Nastase: 4
Boris Becker, John McEnroe: 3
Björn Borg, Leyton Hewitt: 2
Andre Agassi, Stefan Edberg, Jimmy Connors, Andy Murray: 1

Nadal's losses at the ATP Finals
Roger Federer 4-6 5-7 (2006)
Roger Federer 4-6 1-6 (2007)
Roger Federer 3-6 6-3 1-6 (2010)
Roger Federer 3-6 0-6 (2011)

Novak Djokovic 6-7 3-6 (2009)
Novak Djokovic 3-6 4-6 (2013)
Novak Djokovic 3-6 3-6 (2015)

James Blake 4-6 6-7 (2006)
David Ferrer 6-4 4-6 3-6 (2007)
Robin Söderling 4-6 4-6 (2009)
Nikolai Dawydenko 1-6 6-7 (2009)
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-7 6-4 3-6 (2011)
David Goffin 6-7 7-6 4-6 (2017)
Alexander Zverev 2-6 4-6 (2019)

No one gives a fuck bar pressed and frustrated rabid Fedtards.

Big3 biggest flaw is this:

10-4 Nadal-Fed GS H2H
24-16 Nadal-Fed H2H

Plus the octopous in the Sahara level of uselessness at RG and the uncanny ability to lose GS F after 40-15.

So useless, that he won 4 games in 3 sets in the FINALS of a slam while being the #1 ranked player in the world. Oh, the humiliation.

Oh, I dunno.

After all, he made the final.

What's useless is losing to Rosol, Darcis, Dustin Brown (have I missed anyone?) in the early rounds of a slam during your prime.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather lose to an unknown than be humiliated by my arch nemesis.

Look at you trying to goad me. The head2head does not lie, hun.
I'm not trying to goad you at all.

Just fascinated by how your cowardly instincts match those of your hero: you'd rather lose in the first round to a nobody than get a beatdown from a rival.

Nadal is often injured or worn out in the end of the year, it has nothing to do with him not being able to adapt to indoor conditions. He's arguably the most versatile player out of the big 3. ATP Finals has lost a lot of credibility after Dimitrov, Zverev and Tsitsipas have won it in the recent years tbh.
