Which player tried consistently to stop Federer during the 2004-2007 period?
He consistently tried and he consistently failed.
That screaming blonde prostitute in Djokovic's box.
are you serious?
I think nadal is the only player to lead the head to head against fed from 04-07.
It's obvious that the answer is hewitt.
I guessed Agassi, don't know
Nadal of course. Dumb question really.
Are you telling me that a ~18 year old Nadal who was nothing but a clay specialist back then caused Federer the most trouble? He can't be Federer's biggest rival... :shock:
I'd say Hanescu..
Nadal made the finals of Wimbledon in both 2006 and 2007 and won 2 Masters titles on hard courts as early as 2005. He obviously was never just a clay court specialist.
Roddick was the one trying the most to get the better of Federer, so in that sense he was Fed's chief rival, but Nadal as well.
who else was his rival? hewitt? bend over-roddick? 100yo agassi (actually old not 29)? 12 yo Djokovic?
If anyone was his rival it was nadal although he certainly couldn't challenge him over a whole season at this point.
It's still a little concerning when a 18 year old kid who is no where near his prime is Federer's biggest rival. ( according to you)
What does this tell you about the rest of the field?
that's not a prostitute. That's dijana, his mom.
I never said it was a strong field.
Roddick and Hewitt.
Hewitt's career took just as big a hit by Federer's presence as Roddicks'.
Federer def. Hewitt R16 4-6, 6-3, 6-0, 6-4
Federer def. Hewitt QF 6-1, 6-7(1), 6-0, 6-4
Federer def. Hewitt F 6-0 7-6 6-0
Federer def. Hewitt SF 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(4) (lleyton performed much better than Roddick did in the F)
Federer def. Hewitt SF 6-3, 7-6(0), 4-6, 6-3 (Definitely Federer's toughest match of that USO)
Today's field is pretty weak as well. Nadal pretty much ravaged everyone in 2010. Berdych at Wimbledon? Soderling at RG? Djokovic at USO? None of those guys got even close to taking the trophy from Nadal.
Djokovic winning the AO against Murray (lol strong era :lol and back to back masters does not really tell us if this era has suddenly gotten stronger. When Djokovic manages to win a single big match from Nadal at a grand slam I will begin to consider it. Using a few months worth of results to make a statement about the quality of an era is utterly moronic. That is like saying that the era was strong from "October 2004- to January 2005 " because Marat Safin won back-to-back masters and won the AO. An era does not constitute 3 months.
how is this field any stronger than the one back then? nadal dominates this one... and federer dominated the other one, fields only look stronger if the top player gets beat more often, but does that actually mean the field is stronger or the top players are weaker..? IMO its impossible to determine that unless u can somehow compare every aspect which is of course not possible
I would say fed had no real rivals back then but a couple guys who gave him a bit of trouble, nalbandian for one.
Djokovic was exhausted because of the 5-setter he played with Federer. He still managed to take a set away from Nadal so kudos to him.
He was in a slump mode during most of the 2009-2010, but it does not take away for what he's capable of. He's still a dangerous opponent even without his serve.
Solderling is no ordinary claycourter, he already prooved that in 2009 and repeated the same result in 2010.
You are using one miracle of a example. Berdych is one of the lucky guys who broke trough, but this happens in every era once in a while.
I think you're taking Murray very lightly here. Do not forget that he's the one leading the h2h against Federer and has made 3 grandslam finals. This is another sign of a strong era. ( slamless Murray)
I never said that we have a strong era because of Djokovic's dominance. We have Nadal and Federer, one of the greatest players in history competing in this era and you dare to question it... Djokovic is another born legend who will proove himself in the next upcoming years.
tried or suceeded, because well roddick wins in only one of those catagories
pete sampras cus im cool
Take away Federer and Nadal themselves, and today's field is not any stronger than it was during 2004-2007.
The two are not mutually exclusive.
Enjoy your trolling while you can YKB...Djokovic's streak ain't gonna last forever.
Lol poor Yoda has his head so far up Djoko's arse that he sucks up to someone who pretends to be djokovic's little brother LMAO
Must be the lack of oxygen in there lol
The King would bagel everyone and stay undeafeted the whole period.(2004-2007)
Murray would atleast win 3 hardcourt gs. Solderling would get away with one grandslam (French Open).
The same goes for Del Potro as for Murray winning atleast 3 hardcourt grandslams.
I believe that today's top 5 ( Del Potro included) would completely dominate the tour. ( 2004-2007)
Who says it will? :lol: The King brought tennis to a whole nother level, as a tennisfan you should be happy.
The guy who gave Federer the biggest scares outside of Nadal was Nalbandian. He had the game to go toe-to-toe with him, leading to some absolutely epic matches.
