Re: Grassdal vs Clayerer

Now Federer on clay for sure. Nadal doesn't have the confidence on grass. In his prime though I'd probably go with Nadal on grass.

Not even close. Clayerer by far. I even don't mention he still doesn't have a bad loss at the RG since 2003.
On the other hand clown loses at Wimbledon to top-200 players left and right

Player must be assessed on the best results, not the worst. Nadal has 2 Wimbledon title, Federer has 1 RG title. Nadal was able to beat best grasscourter ever in Wimbledon final, Federer could not beat best claycourter in RG final. :worship:

Re: Grassdal vs Clayerer

Grassdal and it's not even close.

2 WIM vs. 1 FO

And more importantly, Grassdal actually beat Grasserer to win WIM and took him to 5 sets in another final, while Clayerer didn't even take Claydal to 5 sets once.

Re: Grassdal vs Clayerer

Is this a serious question?:superlol:Although Nadal has been making himself look like a clown on grass since 2012, but 2 Slams + dethronement of Fed are giving Rafa an obvious edge here:aparty:

Federer can't even take a set vs Djokovic at RG when the circumstances are equal with no Tankini's walkovers:lol:

On a side note, Grassovic > Grassdal and Clayovic > Clayerer:yeah:

Re: Grassdal vs Clayerer

The one with two slams on his worst surface.
Nadal's worst surface is not grass, but indoor hard.

OT, it must be him, but only with a slight edge. Federer was a really steady and offensive claycourter in his prime 2005-11, after that he declined heavily.
So was Nadal, his only luck was 2010 when Berdych took out his only 2 dangerous opponents and had nothing left in the final... therefore got 1 more GS title, totally undeserved. Maybe that Wimbledon win was the biggest fluke on any surface of all times, in any conditions, in any draws.
So in my book, it doesn't really count. (Of course, Nadalfans can argue that Federer's '09 RG win was also undeserved, since without Söderling he never would have achieved it, though reaching that many finals and playing against the King of Clay made it truly deserved.)

Therefore it must be their peak level and general playing style. Even there I only give Nadal the edge because of the ridiculous passing shots, in all other areas Federer had the same level on clay as he had on grass. Though a top player obviously needs other weapons or strengths on clay/grass, therefore also considering that.

It's not so much a question as a test for adequacy for Federer fans :)

Negative, negative, it must be assessed also by general peak level consistently during their best years and playing style.

And more importantly, Grassdal actually beat Grasserer to win WIM and took him to 5 sets in another final, while Clayerer didn't even take Claydal to 5 sets once.
That was only due to their matchup, especially on clay.
And of course you can even acknowledge that if you are not a Fed fan or Fedtard.

Why the fuck are you starting a thread if you're going to refute every answer with your own twisted logic?! :eek::eek::eek:

Start a thread that you are neutral about. Or just don't start it at all.

Another Fedtard/Dulltard/Djoktard with his view on tennis world which he needs to share with his idotic comments, what a surprise. Really an endangered specimen on this site.

Re: Grassdal vs Clayerer

In shot-making abilities Fed's is better. I forgot when the last time Djokovic made a short cross court backhand winner
Remember better last match when Federer didn't hit his backhand in the sky :lol::lol:
