Djokovic, Murray and Nadal have hypochondriac tendencies. Federer is generally stoic.

Federer is tough, but Nadal is tougher. Look at how he came back at the Roland Garros final this year. It was just frightening.

Federer, he likes to send these no so subtle messages to his adversaries like the famous finger waging. :lol:

Federer. He totally destroyed Mugray with mind games before AO final.

Clearly Stalldal and his time delay tricks. It starts in the press room before the match. "I am injured here, here, and here."

Then, before the match, the locker room, him bouncing around, then delaying to walk out, delaying for the coin toss, wasting time in the warm up, and this is all before the first point is played.

Tio Toni Mafioso taught him well.

generally federer. but between them, Nadal has power over Fed, Nole over Rafa, Fed over Nole. I don't think anyone actually owns Murray mentally, no need to yet.

definitely nadal.

"So rafa, you have beaten fed at this venue many times (French open), how do you feel about facing fed in the french open final again?"

"Well.... Fed is playing very well, no? Best he has played this year, no? Fed is the favorite no?"

Than federer, the moron he is, gets all pressured and shit and chokes

Nadal by a mile. The in your face jumping up before a match trying to scare the opponent. The false modesty. The fake injuries and the fake time outs. The guy puts sir Alex to shame.

Nadal. Collapses during a press conference with cramps and plays like crap against weaker opponents, then once he gets to the QFs, he mysteriously starts playing high quality tennis. He lures his opponents into a false sense of believing he is injured or not playing his best, and once he gets to the later stages of the slam, he becomes harder to beat unless your name is Novak Djokovic :eek:

If a person is going to be intimidated by a dude jumping in front of them, maybe competitive sport isn't for them.

Anyway Federer does it best because he knows what he's doing. He seems very sharp.
Nadal does it on a subconscious level due to his OC disorder and rituals.
I believe Nole is the toughest mentally but he also doesn't play the mental aspect of the game as much as the other two,
