well done to those who have got on at big prices but he can't possibly be value now.

if Novak gets through that will be a match up that worries Rafa greatly- even though he beat him recently, his record against the serbian in recent years is pretty poor to be lumping on at 1-2 in outrights

Rafa really is free money to win this Slam. I just can't see any other outcome. He would have to seriously injury himself to not be victorious.

Nadal on clay at the moment is like how Mike Tyson was in his heyday.

Opponents are beaten before they step out on court.

Yep, the only thing stopping an 11th RG is injury.

Report mesmerised April 26, 2018 12:40 PM BST
As did making excuses for the biggest losses in your career, said he lost Wimbledon08 because he was scared from the thrashing a month earlier at Roland Garros. Said he was the better player v Delpo at USO09 for 4 of the 5 sets. Lots of subtle classless comments from Fed over the years that the media don't report.

Choosing to miss the French Open for the rest of his career will reflect very badly in years to come, it's not he has no chance. There is no doubt if Nadal wasnt around, he'd never skip the clay season, it's all about avoiding him and keeping the h2h healthy for his legacy status, which is really quite sad tbh.
Report mesmerised April 26, 2018 12:40 PM BST
it's not like he has no chance*
Report bb66 April 26, 2018 1:00 PM BST
It's only in the mind of those grasping at straws to find sth where Nadull outperforms Fed, that Fed would care about the h2h vs Nadull thinking of his legacy.
Report mesmerised April 26, 2018 1:18 PM BST
He was just lucky he was born in 1981 and not 1986 when Nadal was, imagine if they were born in the same year, do you really think it'd currently be 20:16 in slams, of course not. And he wouldn't currently hold a record for longest Number 1 either, his decline started when Nadal and Novak came good.

Moreover, imagine if there had been 2 clay court slams rather than 2 hard court slams, the Slam totals would be reversed and then some.

The tour is weighted against clay court players and favours those on hard, there are 6 masters events on hard, 3 on clay, 2 slams on hard, 1 on clay, and the World Tour finals is always hard indoords favouring Federer's tennis when really the surface and location if need be, should be alternated.

Nadal has a better slam conversion rate in slams - 1 slam win every 3.19 events played, Federer = 1 slam every every 3.6 events played.
Nadal has a better Masters conversion rate - 1 masters win every 3.5 events played, Federer = 1 Masters every 4.8 events played
And he won an Olympic Gold on hard court, Federer hasn't on either grass on hard. And he's won

Not many areas where Federer has outperformed Nadal, and no straw clutching based on all thatLaugh

If he wasn't for knee problems 6 or so years ago, he wouldn't have had so many first week exits at Wimbledon whereas before hand he was making finals almost every year.
Report bb66 April 26, 2018 2:13 PM BST
there are much more clay court tournaments than on Fed's best surface, grass. In former times, 3 GS tournaments were played on grass, imagine what the GS count would be then
Report mesmerised April 26, 2018 3:12 PM BST
Nobody likes Grass, it's not real tennis.
Federer likes quick, fast surfaces, plenty of fast hard courts, his style suits it, Nadal's suits clay.

I've always said the US Open or Aussie open should alternate between clay and hard at least.
