Since Federer's AO 2017 win over Nadal, we have been hearing endless theories about how the big racket has neutralised all of Nadal's strengths exploiting Federer's weaknesses, and how if only he had changed his racket a lot earlier, he would have beaten him at the French open as well. With this straight set drubbing when Federer played with his big racket, we can confidently put that theory to bed and just say that Federer is no match to Nadal on clay, particularly at Roland Garros.

Reasons why Roger Federer won 5 straight matches against Nadal:


  • None of those matches were played on clay
  • Olderer's first-strike game is much better suited to beating Nadal
  • Fed had the right mentality after his time off and lack of clay-related mental scarring
  • The bigger racquet allowed Fed to drive and block his backhands more effectively and enabled his aggressive tactics
Reasons why OP made this thread:

Nice rant. Now try and tell how Federer would have won all those French opens if he had changed the racket earlier- the arguments that several of the tards have made in last 2 years.

There was a gale blowing yesterday in case you hadn't noticed, Federer's first serve average was down by 20km/h. We will have to wait for another clay meeting before testing your theory.

Obvious ridiculous excuse. The wind of course did not affect Nadal.
