    This thread is in response to, http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=299641

    At end of the day, 15-6 is way more significant than 13-7, don't you agree?

    Here's why the h2h is skewed:

    Since 2006:

    Federer made the final of 11 of the 16 clay court events which both played in. (GS & MS events)
    Nadal made the final of 14 of the 16 major CC events which both played in.

    Nadal made the final of 7 of the 36 major HC events which both played in. (GS, MS, and TMC/YEC)
    Federer made the finals of 18 of the 36 major HC events both played in.

    So while Federer has left Nadal 'hanging' so to speak only 3 times on clay, Nadal has failed to return the favor in 11 events where Federer made the finals on HC. Not to mention that there are more HC events in a year, yet a majority of the meetings have still come on clay due to Nadal's inability to reach HC finals. This is more directed at the people who try to claim the h2h makes Nadal the better player, which is clearly not the case.

    Obviously you can't take away anything, thats the point of this thread. The logic of "Fed-Rafa H2H w/o clay bias: Rafa still better " thread is dumb and pointless.

    But at least I have a valid point that At end of the day, 15-6 is way more important than the H2H between them.

    Let's say Nadal and Federer met 20 times on clay and 20 times on other surfaces . . . what do you think their h2h would be??

    Again, Fed is clearly a better player than Nadal, but that 7-13 is a big blemish, no matter that Nadal is a bad match-up for Fed.

    The total slam count will be more meaningful by the end of their careers. Right now, the comparison ought to be more like 12-6 or 13-6, the number of slams Federer won since Nadal first came on the scene and won his first FO. It's still a large margin.

    Nadal is much more dominant on clay than Fed is on HC. No one is arguing that. This is beared out in the amt of finals each made on the respective surfaces. While Nadal made 87% of the clay finals during the time, Fed only made 50% of the HC finals during the time period. So since Nadal is better on Clay than Fed is on HC, its always going to be skewed towards Nadal.

    It is already reflected in Federer's grand slam count of 15, and not more. It isn't reasonable to double-count it, like some want to do.

    Not just 15 slams, I'll be quite happy with having just 1 slam than having a 13-7 record against one player.

    I think Rafa should worry more about the top ten players than thinking about Federer.

    Rafa's last 10 matches against the top ten players has a record of 1-9. These are the top players he met:

    1. Federer – Madrid
    2. Soderling – RG
    3. Del Potro – Canada
    4. Djokovic – Cincinati
    5. Del Potro – US Open
    6. Davydenko – Shanghai
    7. Tsonga – Paris(WIN!)
    8. Djokovic – Paris
    9. Soderling – WTF
    10. Davydenko – WTF


    His win/loss ratio in those 10 matches:
    Win….Loss
    0……….2
    0……….2
    2……….0
    0……….2
    0……….2
    0……….3
    0……….2
    0……….2
    1……….3
    0……….2

    Total set win = 3
    Total set lost = 20


    And:
    Of those 10 matches:
    -His serve was broken 37 times.
    -His opponents got broken 8 times.

    Can we make a pact with the mods? Any new thread on this subject leads to an instant ban of the OP, no questions asked.

    Yeah why not? It always was the nadaltards and samprasclowns that bring up Fed/Nadal H2H in every single threads.

    *********? Samprasclown?

    Moi????

    Nadal is probably my least favorite player in Top 10 (apart from Muzzer). I never cared too much for Pete either, and I believe Federer is a far more legitimate GOAT contender than him.

    Well it wasn't exactly directed at you in general but the Nadal/Samprasclowns that bring the H2H argument into every single discussions on this board just to troll, even the none Fed/Nadal related threads. I know you created that thread for whatever reasons you thought might be interesting but it gave the nadal/samprasclowns a chance to jump all over it and express why their think H2H is so important (this thread shoves them back in their little hole).

    I agree. But you only give them yet another venue for their idiocy by creating a thread like this.

    I didn't create a thread for "whatever reason I thought might be interesting". I made a thread because I believe Nadal would lead H2H even if they played most matches on hardcourts.

    H2H is what it is. If Fedfans believe that H2H doesn't matter, that's OK with me. The number of slams is more important than H2H and Federer has obviously more slams (and will finish his career with more slams).

    But, the problem is that some Fedfans (many Fedfans, actually) say that the H2H is skewed because of matches played on clay. And that's not true. And I made a thread to respond to those people (not anyone else). If anyone thinks H2H is less important than the number of slams, he should simply disregard my thread.

    So, bottom line, H2H is entirely legit. Rafa would still lead even if the matches were evenly distributed throughout the entire season (meaning: mathces on HC the most frequent, then the matches on clay, and the matches on grass the least frequent). It's a perfectly correct to say that H2H is not that important. But it is not correct to say that Rafa leads H2H just because of clay.

    I think Federer knows the way now. He should have just tanked all of his pre-nadal clay court matches.

    I see your point and I won't disagree that it is not correct to say that Rafa leads H2H just because of clay.

    Point of this thread is for those nadal/samprasclowns that think Nadal is better than Federer because of H2H, and sampras is somehow (insanely) better than federer too because of feds losing H2H with Nadal.

    I think your the stupid **** who can't accept the fact slam record is more important than H2H. Point of this thread is 15-6 is more significant than 13-7. Get it, dumbdumb?

    I think thats exactly what he did. Why do you think he has an 1-0 advantage over Nadal on clay this season while Djokovic is 0-3 against Nadal?
