This is a very overlooked statistic in relation to Rafa's achievements. He has won a grand slam and a masters for ten consecutive years and counting. This is a remarkable achievement. People often state that Rafa's style of play is taxing on his body and that he will burn out quicker than his cohorts yet the closest Federer ever came to this type of consistency is by winning a slam for 8 years. This is a very incredible piece of statistics as Rafa's style of play and his will to win has allowed him to win a slam and masters for 10 years plus whereas federer could not achieve this. Federer has a less physical style of play and could not better this achievement, it seems rafa's consistency is overlooked.

Rafa - 10 years winning a slam and masters
Federer - 8 years winning a slam and 4 years winning a masters
Djokovic - 4 years winning a slam and masters

What I want to know is this. People constantly slate Rafa's style of play but he is the most consistent in winning a slam and masters each year, he has surpassed Fed, Sampras and Bjorg in this department.

Feds style of play has allowed him to win a slam for 8 years whereas rafa has won a slam and masters for ten years and counting. Now that is what I call consistency, this will be an all time record which will last for many decades.

it is a massively impressive stat that's for sure. It is however mostly due to his utter dominance on clay. Doesn't make it a lesser achievement though.

Useless thread, Nadal focuses on clay season every year since 2005, unlike Fed/Djokovic plays entire season. Nadal is clay man, bo matter how anyone spin it to look better. If Someone have so much belief in Factor's consistency why he don't open thread about Weak at No 1? :lol:

This is the greatest achievement for any tennis player.
One grand slam each every year for 10 consecutive years. wow.


For those who talk about court type and discredit Nadal of his achievements.....federer has won mostly in weak era....if you remove those slams won in the weak era....there is nothing left for federer.

Federers achievements are mostly winning ATP 250 titles.

This basically, a poor attempt of elevating clay man in group of Consistent greats. :lol:

9 RG+ 1 AO+ TONS of mickey mouse tournies= Consistency in Word of Nadal fans. :lol:

So, just because federer could not do it...its a useless thread?

Accept it...Nadal is a greater and better player than federer.

Nadals game is exciting to watch whereas federer's boring to watch.

Sign worthy stuff JK! I admire your consistency. Even if one Decided to change sign every day still he won't run out of sign, as long as you're posting here! :lol:

Considering Nadal was #2 in the world since 2005, I would say the weak era debate is IDIOTIC. Nadal won multiple ATP1000 hardcourt titles that year as well. The weak-era debate is a made up theory with no basis at all. Nadal was #2 in the world for the majority of this "era".

We are celebrating this in Canada. Our Prime minister just talked about it on TV. The Queen was involved too.

Without Wafa, this world would be hungry and desperate ... :)

It's amazing that in all that time, Nadal's always been fortunate to be healthy for Paris. Lucky, this Nadal is.
