How can Nadal be a GOAT candidate if...
 
...he lost every match he ever played against his greatest rival Federer at every World Tour Finals meeting since 2006? They met 4 times and Nadal lost all 4, having only won 1 set.:shock:
Doesn't a GOAT candidate have to show at least SOME skill indoors as opposed to just winning all clay all the time and having never successfully defended a non-clay title in his entire 10+ years on the tour? Furthermore, only having won 5 hardcourt Masters titles and 4 non-clay Slams? And getting blasted off the court by his main rival in every indoors meeting? :-?
Obviously Nadal wants more clay tournaments. Why no demand for INDOOR tournaments? :lol: Oh yeah, I know why...
A little hard on the knees mixed with the fact that he has no game to compete with Federer indoors so why bother eh? :lol:

Quite simply because Nadal leads the GOAT
in Grand Slam finals: 4-2

and Fed's never beat him at the French.

Nadal isn't a GOAT candidate.

Nadal made Federer cry like a baby girl.......that made him a GOAT candidate. :twisted:

A troll thread deserves a troll post :)

Well, as we all know, Nadal can't play tennis. Here we are: the Goat (swiss cheese) is mentally challenged and has never found the solution to constantly beat an inapt tennis player in slams. In the process, he gave that inapt tennis player the opportunity to become one of the best of all time. Poor tennis fans, that idiot named Roger Federer made so much damage. He completely ruined the game.

:cry:Don't give up Mike, you'll find a job soon. Try to get more letters of recommendation from professionals and former professors etc. Strengthen your application letter and update your CV. When you go to job interviews, don't forget to take a shower beforehand, brush your teeth, get a haircut. Finally, make them want you by telling them positive aspects about yourself that set you apart from other candidates. Don't give up, your time will come!

Hahaha sick burn!

P.S: Moot as Nadal isn't a GOAT candidate.

More importantly Nadal needs more years at #1. He is rivaled by Djokovic and Hewitt in that category now, and in weeks as well. And having zero WTF titles looks pretty weak no matter how long he can milk a weak clay era and rack up 70% of his slams at a single event.

Pure gold lol. I noticed you did not ask Mike Sam to work on his public speaking skills. Do you think he has that covered? Or is that phase 2 of recovery?

OP, does GOAT exist? I keep checking the ATP site and can't find the GOAT rankings anywhere.

The GOAT debate was already close back in 1969.

I am sure TMF can help you out in that respect.

cknobman 10-02-2012 06:27 AM

This thread should not exist because Nadal is not a GOAT candidate.

It's your co Fedfans who keeps on making threads about it, dude.
Insecure much ? :-?

SoBad 10-02-2012 06:37 AM

Oh, stoned Rafa rolled into some indoor Christmas exhibition in a wheelchair and lost a match? Ban him right away from the hall of fame, I say...:lol:

LOL insecure about what, Nadal?

No I am perfectly fine with Nadal and what he has accomplished and if he achieves enough then I will be perfectly fine considering him as a GOAT candidate.

As it stands now he has not achieved enough. He is at the upper end of Tier 2 status with Borg.

RF20Lennon 10-02-2012 06:38 AM

At OP dunno yet when is he playing his first poker match?

I completely agree with you there mate. But *******s like Mike appears to be affected much by what Nadal has done, hence all these troll threads. Do you not agree ?
