When Tiger was 26, he had won 8 majors and it looks like Jack Nicklaus record of 18 majors will likely to get broken in the future. However Tiger won just 6 more majors over the next 13 years, and none in the last 6 years. With injuries and aging, many fans believe he will not win another major.


Nadal also won his first major at a young age. He was on pace to surpass Federer's total major count, and when he won 3 slams in 2010, many fans believe he will break Roger's slam record. But today, Nadal has fallen behind Federer at the respective age. He hasn't advanced past the quarterfinals in the past five majors. Injuries and aging has coming into effect.


Even if Nadal and Tiger never wins another major again, both career will be celebrated.

Looks like a cardiac arrest - flatlining. Someone get the defibrillator, stat!

And I don't think it has anything to do with that. Nadal's gameplay vs. his body is what happened. Woods had none of that. On second thought, there might be similarites - in terms of Nadal ruining his body on court, while Woods was ruining it by fucking sluts and pornstars in unhealthy positions.

Whatever, both Nadal and Tiger have had two of the greatest careers their sport has ever seen, even if they retired today.

Tiger hasn't won a slam in six years, Nadal in one. There is no comparison between the two. Nadal is in a minor slump (still ranked in top 10) after an injury, whereas Tiger's glory days are long over.

Yup there is a parallel. Especially both being struck by injuries. But both have achieve things in their respective sports that make them legends and always in the GOAT argument. And that's all that matters.

Federer ain't Jack Nicklaus, for various reasons I don't want to go into.

Personally, I have more respect and place more value on Stan Wawrinka's 2 slams than on Federer's 17 slams.

The difference between Tiger and Rafa is, Tiger won't break the majors record, while Rafa will.
They are absolute opposite personalities.
No two men have ever been more different to each other....

Nothing like that to be Honest, People like Sampras,Agassi,Maradona,Jordan all were childhood prodigies and went on winning till they greyed out,
