Which is more likely Federer winning Olympic Singles Gold or Nadal winning the WTF?

Obviously, things are setup to be far easier for Nadal to win the WTF because he gets a chance every single year, whereas to win olympic gold you only get a chance every 4 years. Even so it will be challenging for Nadal as indoor is his worst surface. He got close in 2010, don't know if he can top that. We will see.

Nadal will never win the WTF. He isn't good enough on hard courts and he sure isn't good enough indoors. Never gonna happen.

Nadal will never win a WTF title.

Because the draw and his puppets are not there to help him. Every player is a potential upset.

You mean indoor hard courts surely? He has a dominant record over Federer on outdoor hard courts (Federer has only beaten him twice, today and 7 years ago).

Federer winning olympic gold in singles. If he is in form, he's the best player in the world in my opinion. Yes, others can still beat him at that point, but if he's on fire at the time, he'll have a very good chance. Especially considering it'll be on grass, where he should have an advantage.

As for Nadal and the WTF...the players are too good. At the end of the year he's burnt himself out (no excuses, his fault for his playstyle/schedule managing) and the guys there are too high quality for him to win the whole thing. There are better HC players, and they can hit him off the court there. If the WTF moves to somewhere else and has different conditions, who knows? But I give Fed a better chance.

No,I mean he is not good enough on hard courts period. He hasn't won a hard court title since Tokyo 2010. For a top player that's abysmal.

Beating Fed on a HC =/= winning the WTF

Nadal will never win WTF. His best chance was in 2010. Not now.

Federer winning Olympic Singles Gold is more likely.

Nadal will never win WTF because Clarky said so...
