Federer dominates the indoor events because he's the only player not tired after USO

    Federer never looks tired at the end of the year, while the rest of the top 10 are a shadow of themselves, most years. This is why he dominates the indoor events each year - he maintains his level, while the others are spent. And this is why he wins the World Tour Finals each year. It's less to do with it being indoors, and more to do with the gap between federer and the tired pack.

    Poor Nadal getting tired so quick. Should drink more milk or eat more bananas.

    Lolworthy thread, dear NSK.

    Rafa doesn't like milk. He eats his bananas with Coca-Cola.

    That's part of sports: staying at peak health and fitness to compete. It's their fault that they aren't as good as Roger at that.
    Or at winning slams.

    Nadal could be fit too, but his style of play is too taxing on his body. No wonder he always complain about the long schedule since getting all beat up after USO. Federer's effortless style is an ideal for a tennis player. If a player wants to have a long and healthy career, play like Roger not like Nadal.

    There are not good indoors players today, except Federer.It is not their fault 1005 since there are almost no indoor tennis events of interest, compared to 1970 to 1999.

    Nobody plays with more physical pain than Nadal.

    I think Nadal is better at winning slams (and will win more slams than Federer). But Federer is better at the post-US Open schedule, because playing Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US summer, doesn't tire Federer. Nothing does.

    Put them on the tennis court together and Nadal is better, and already has 11 slams.

    Nadal is rarely injured, but he has tendinitis, and most people with tendinitis take time off. Nadal fights through it, and I'm surprised Federer's fans don't love that. It is harder than anything Federer did.

    right.. having twin girls to worry about is so easy ..

    yet everytime Nadal loses people say things like "Nadal was tired, he shouldn't have even played" or my favorite after FO '09, "Nadal was injured"

    you win some you lose some...

    if the WTF is important to Nadal like Wimbledon is, he'd adjust his schedule to not be so tired. he doesn't care.

    the "offseason, is only 3-4 weeks anyway, I saw a pretty refreshed Nadal at the AO this year. he's been out for that amount of time since his last match so when he loses at the Roger's cup, prepare your next excuse ahead of time. I'm sure he was tired or still hurting from his wisdom teeth being pulled

    The real issue is that Federer isn't good enough to engage in epic battles to win slams with Nadal & Djokovic, so he loses quickly in slam season and has energy left over for indoors. But who cares about winning WTF titles? Slams are what it's all about.

    i think it is more than just the tiredness of other players.......once they got rid of carpets around 2006 and laid down dead slow hardcourts, federer started dominating that part of the season.......he is a really good player when wind and sun are out of the equation and the surfaces are such that you cannot easily hit through a good defender like him.......

    Which explains why he's the current Wimbledon champion at the age of 30 (will turn 31 this year).

    You outdid yourself LOLville, it's quite amazing as I didn't think such thing was possible, this is probably the most ignorant thing you said to date.

    Fact is, Fed is the player who's arguably the best ever at not losing quickly in slams, his consistency in going deep in slams is unparalleled, even at 30 he's not going out to Rosols of the world in slams.

    Not to mention that out of 6 Fed's YEC titles only one came in the year in which he didn't win a slam and half of them came in the year in which he won 3 slams so your "loses so quickly so he has energy left" is utter nonsense.

    Clowns like Sampras, Fed, Lendl, Becker, Borg, McEnroe etc.

    Fortunately Fed has 17 of them.

    Are you saying federer only wins the latter events because he's on steroids? I don't think its appropriate to mention that kind of thing without evidence.

    Poor Rafi, very tired, no? The warrior is tired during the Wimbledon and Olympics this time. Hope mama feeds him well at home

    On the other hand, too much rest is bad for Rafi too. Took a month off last WTF and got destroyed once more. Lulz

    Its because he needs a very controlled, perfect environment to do his bidding. He is a swiss ballerina, an artiste, but not by any means a gladiator or fierce competitor. Maybe he is the most graceful and elegant player of all time, in fact he likely is. But he prefers the courts to play super quick with low bounce and the conditions still, so he can enact his precision waltz. In the past years, he was so far above the weak era field that it didn't matter, but now that Djokodal has usurped his stranglehold on the game, he does do better in 'still conditions'...under the roof, indoor Fall Swing etc...

    PS: Don't bring up Indian Wells in the wind, the conditions were so bad there that it was a crap shoot.

    That's actually a pretty good assessment. Nadal's aesthetically inferior workman-like style needs slow high-bouncy courts and someone else to control the game for him to look a fierce warrior.

    Djokovic is limited to HC greatness although he will win RG in the future prolly

    Interesting

    Federer is the best indoor player because he has the most endurance throughout the year (according to this thread), but in other threads Federer is washed up because he is old? How does one holds these two together?

    Thanks same to you.

    I don't know who said Federer is washed up and old (and whoever said it is probably joking). Most of the threads I've seen say Nadal is on the verge of retirement and that Federer will play into his mid-30s and a shot at 20 slams.

    Federer

    I have seen so many threads here where Federer is discounted over the last 4 years or so, because he is 'old'. Its just nonsense, but it just keeps coming up. You can't compare age with age - people age differently. Was McEnroe's 35 years old equal to Rosewall's 35 or Tilden's 35 ?
