    Do one for Cvac. His title droughts aren't so great,either.

    Can we add others? Hewitt won in Las Vegas in March 2007, and didn't win another tournament again until Houston in April 2009 (25 months).

    He's currently on a 27 month drought since beating Federer in the Halle final in 2010.

    Benneteau - his entire career is one long title drought.

    You know,we could do this all day. Cvac went 3 years without winning a title off of hardcourts. Actually,he went a year and a half without winning a masters title on ANY surface. As of now he hasn't won a thing off of hardcourts for a year and a half,and by the time he gets another chance to win a non-hardcourt title,it will have been 2 years since he last won one. He's no more versatile than Nadal,and is less so if you compare their careers.


    Oh,and Nadal has 4 non-clay slam titles while Cvac has a whopping 1 not on hardcourts.

    William Renshaw won his 7th Wimbledon singles title in July 1889. His title drought is currently 1,478 months :(

    But you know there are 9 big tournaments played on HC and 5 played on clay/grass! Seems to me that's easiest for Nadal to win one......

    So what? If a player is good enough they will win on all surfaces. Isn't that what the brilliant folks here like to say when it comes to Nadal? Cvac is not as versatile as Nadal,and since he labeled a one dimensional moonballer,what does that say about Cvac?

    Too bad. He could have drowned the GOAT in Wimbledon this year.

    You can't help but feel sorry for the old man. 0-6 in finals and approaching the final stretch of his career without a single ATP title.
