    What's crazier is the fact that Rafa is the man to beat on this surface, a fact that I will never deny * Roger is the man*. But there are so many threads trying to discredit Roger's clay court game. In a case like this, I would gladly crown Roger 2nd best on the dirt.

    7 of 9 loses coming to the same man, and only wining 8 sets. That includes the Hamburg victory last year. A part of me is realistic and another part believes he can bring his game together in 3 of the most important sets in France, against the best there is on clay.

    Yea, Federer really sucks on clay...he should retire, switch to a larger racket, get a 2 HBH, or something.

    The 1st few sentences of the 2nd paragraph ignore the context of: who else has been able to take more sets off of Nadal than Fed? Who's played him better? No-one.

    So basically Fed's played him as good or better than anyone else ever has, except early 2005.

    Overall, you can cut that crap out about David Ferrer is the #2 player on clay. In your mind he might be, but facts prove otherwise.

    Ok, fair enough there, I overlooked him (my fault, it was bolded). But still, he's done well.
