Ok I came up with a list of truths I've discovered here on the board regarding pro tennis. It goes something like this. 1. The only match wins of any importance are those against Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray, regardless of the importance of the event, and regardless of the round of the event. 2. Winning a title does not count unless the winner beats 1) Nadal AND 2) either Djokovic or Murray, but beating both is even more convincing (Federer is not on that list BTW, oh thats probably because this is only a truth when Federer wins a title). 3. If a player wins a title but fails to meet the criteria of #2 because listed players from #1 got eliminated early on, the burden of proof is on the winner to prove they can beat the players listed in truth #1. Failure to provide adequate proof deems the winning of the title meaningless. 4. Nadal is a greater player than Federer, despite Federer having been #1 for four times the amount of time Nadal has, AND having won over twice the number of slams, including the career slam. 5. Murray and Djokovic are the benchmark for top quality tennis, even though they frequently get eliminated in early rounds of slams against inferior opponents. 6. Nadal only loses when he is tired, but he's also the most physically fit player on tour. 7. Federer wins titles because he is lucky.
