Commonality between Federer, Nadal, Sampras, and Borg
 
I am surprised that no one has ever brought this up. This blew my mind.

At one point in the career, Federer, Nadal, Sampras, and Borg were all 10-2 in Grand Slam singles finals.

After that, Federer went 7-5, Nadal went 1-3, Sampras went 4-2, and Borg went 1-3.

Unbelievable.

Blows my mind away!

I still can't believe it!

This is the kind of insight we have been waiting for

Another commonality is that they all have wielded a tennis racquet.

They are all men.

No one posted it because no one cares.

A more interesting commonality is that they are all tied for the most consecutive years of winning 1 slam per year (8 years), which Nadal has the chance to break next year if he wins at least 1 slam.

Have a 1-star rating and a report.

That's what they want you to think.

Or that since going 10-2 in Grand Slam finals, both Borg and Nadal have gone 1-3 in Grand Slam finals. Of course, Borg, never won another slam after his 11th. It would not surprise me if that the same happens to Nadal.

Really? Holding a 52-1 record at Roland Garros, far greater than Borg's, with no one to challenge him there at all, and it wouldn't be a surprise to you if :D Rafa :D did not win it next year?

They all have 2 balls,one in hand while serving and other in their pocket.

I am surprised that everyone is downplaying the amazment of this commonality. I would love for others to even come up with another commonality between 4 other great players. Go!

That would be great accomplishment for Nadal, really. What saddens me a little (or gives me the giggles) though, apparently this is what you will be repeating in 5 different accounts over and over and over and over (and over and over and over) again for a considerable future.

The only thing I'm repeating is that this is my only account on this forum. You're obviously just trying to discredit my originality :mad: every time I make a post about :D Rafa :D.

Heheh, nice. I guess it says a lot about me that I can recognise a baconator on a cropped, tiny forum photo :P

The most striking commonality is that they all bow down to Our Rafa (apart from Our Rafa himself).
