If Nadal had Federer's fh, and Federer had Nadal's fh, how many majors for them?
 
Other than the fact their forehand's have swapped, they are exactly the same player, btw. Same movement, backhands, volleys, serve...etc... and Nadal still plays lefty and Roger still plays righty.

You should've swapped their serves. When asked what component of the other player's game he would like to have most, Nadal always answers: "Roger's serve".

Both forehands are good, they probably wouldn't complement either of their games. However Federer's forehand would probably be a little more effective for Nadal's game than Nadal's forehand for Federer's game.

The real question is what would happen if they switched backhands :)

Nadal would improve, Federer would not.

changing Nadal to Fed's FH would make him much more dangerous. He could outlast you or launch an attack with that missile launcher that Federer has. Ironically, if Nadal had Fed's FH, it would be a better matchup for Fed.

Feds backhand is way better just not against nadals forehand.

I agree, I'm a Rafa fan and I think his BH is pretty much just top 20 level. I think there are tournaments where his BH has been on fire but overall it is still just a rally BH.

Now Djoker's BH, that I would take over any of these guys in a heartbeat. Even though his slice isn't that good, the groundstrokes are just so much better and so much more consistent.

I know Federer's backhand is better, I'm just curious to see what would happen if Federer had Nadal's backhand and Nadal had Federer's backhand.

I would imagine that Nadal would be playing a lot like Almagro, while Federer would probably be playing with less variety(slice backhands are also traded).

This one is easy. Nadal's results would improve, Federer's would get worse.

If Nadal had Federer's underwear, would he still pick his butt?

After reading the title of the thread, you can kinda tell the age range of a lot of tt members.

no he would only smack Delpo in the face constantly, so then maybe Delpo won't look like a giant ape

Nadal would win more, not MUCH more, but definitely more. Roger would probably win less bc his play is better as aggressive, and he'd play more like Djokovic with Rafa's FH.

penguyen17 08-02-2012 07:28 PM

Whatever the outcome, they would have the ugliest tennis form known to man. Nadal's forehand on the Fed body, with a 1hbh would be just awkward. The same goes for Fed's Fh on Nadal body. And they probably would have as many fans, lol.

tank_job 08-02-2012 11:46 PM

but Nadal wouldn't be able to get the ball up high on so many backhands with Fed's fh, no?
