    71 wins-10 losses

    That's probably not even top 5 in the open era...

    And yet, he won three slams in a row. Absolutely top 5 in the open era.

    Probably barely top 10. Winning slams surely is most important but maintaing a good WL is what differentiates the truly special player

    It is very similar to Federer's 2007 record. 68-9 W-L, 3 grand slams, and 8 titles. Nadal just had 1 less title.

    Nadal sweeps the entire clay season, wins three grandslams on three different surfaces (consecutively) and his year wasn't good?

    Tell me more, *******!

    It was good. Just not as good as Federer's 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, when you also factor in the all important W-L.

    All those years Federer could barely get a win on clay. He didn't even win one French open in all those years and they were better than Nada's 2010? Yeah okay...

    I believe in those years Federer really only lost to Nadal on clay. Check 2006. Nadal ONLY won FO's in all those years. The only reason he had such great 2008 and 2010 was due to Fed injuries.

    Oh, please enlighten us on what injuries allowed Nadal to sweep three grandslams in a row?

    Fed had a lung infection at the beginning of the year and leg injury during W10. Rafa won USO10 legitimately however, with a cakewalk draw. We'll see what happens when the law of averages takes over.

    Just because you have a head it doesn't mean you have to stick it up Ralph's arse, as your reply clearly shows.

    What do you wanna know Ralphette?

    How many players have had years with fewer than 10 losses and a better W/L ratio?

    my friend got mono recently,I'm hoping it's the Roger Federer type where you can play top level tennis and get cured when you win a slam title

    I'm not saying that Rafa's year wasn't good when I say what I am saying, but bear with me:

    Fed's 3 slams and a slam final is better than 3 slams and a non-slam final, especially when Fed could make the finals of RG consecutively for years...

    ROFL X 2500, V!

    See, Roger Federer is a truly unique player ... he can play high level tennis with mono yet when the light diminishes ever so slightly, as it did in the Wimbledon final 2008 against Rafa, he can't play good enough, losing in 5 sets! ROFL!

    Certainly, but the real miracles is having tendonitis that allows you to destroy Hewitt in a Major and then at the same time allows you to use it as an excuse for skipping Wimbledon. Now that's magic!

    Well, Nadal's own "injury" at Wimbledon's 3rd round allowed him to win that match. In fact, Nadal should thank the "injuries", or "injury timeouts" I should say. Nadal won many titles BECAUSE he was "injured". The most fake champion of all time.

    Smart? Maybe. But with that he is also fake and a cheater. If you are willing to respect a person like that then have fun. I know I can't.

    Where did Fed come in?

    Nadal had a great year. He came back from a lot of injury and a really BAD 11 months. To come back in style like that, beats any other numbers. What a true champion.

    1) Get over it.

    2) LOL at the idea that Nadal would have lost that match. Sorry but Petz's streak was about over when Rafa took his MTO. Result would have been no different.

    Nadal cheated to win Wimbledon, when the umpire turned round he hit Petz with a steal chair.

    I love it how all the Nards reply with the likes of "shut up" or "get over it" because obviously they don't have any valid points to add. Anyway, let's focus at the AO, if Nadal wins that he would have completed the "Cheater Slam".
