WTF more prestigious than winning a Grand Slam
 
Look at Murray, he has to win 2 matches to take the AO trophy. It's a disgrace to give it more prestige than the WTF where you have to win 5.

Honestly what's more worthy:
Winning 5 matches against top 8 players,

OR

Having 5 practice sessions then winning 2 matches best of 5.

You need win just 4 out of 5 matches.

LOL, are you serious? Federer has more Slams AND more WTF than anyone :lol: We don't have any delusions or biases in this regard :)

Muzzer has gotten an easy draw, but LOL @ this thread

Agassifan 01-22-2013 09:53 PM

But yeah... since Feddie's got more slams than anyone, this aint really ****ism

smoledman 01-22-2013 10:02 PM

Feddy has more big titles than anyone in history. He's on his own transcendent plane of existence.

17 slams + 6 WTF + 21 Masters 1000 = 44 big titles

Stop being a fcking dick.

I would say the WTF and Slams verify different aspects of a tennis player.

The WTF is about laser focus, intensity of challenge, being better than the proven best.
The Slams are about stamina, diversity of challenge, being better than the current best.

I suppose WTF is more prestigious than Wimbledon, too. Federer only had to beat two players at The Championships. Oh right, Federer is old and therefore has earned the seniors discount at draw time.

It's good to know TW's historians have already penciled in a second asterik next to Murray's name.

Peters 01-23-2013 02:33 AM

Yep, they're getting in their excuses early for another Murray GS win.

GS1 due to wind.
GS2 due to only playing two matches (whatever that means).

=not real slam titles!

I wonder what the excuses will be for GS number 3, 4 and 5?

vive le beau jeu ! 01-23-2013 02:57 AM

generally i don't think it's more prestigious, but in some cases...

in my opinion, stich's W+WTF is more prestigious than kafelnikov's RG+AO.

axel89 01-23-2013 03:14 AM

Lol your god federer had a joke of a draw at wimpy last year. Moron

ductrung3993 01-23-2013 03:27 AM

Honestly, so far his draw is even more of a joke than Nadal's USO'10.

And now got to face the tired old man.

augustobt 01-23-2013 03:32 AM

Nobody is giving excuses. The fact is that Murray's draw was one of the easiest that I've ever seen in a major (although isn't comparable to Nadal's USO 2010, the EDOAT).

Nadal's 2008 & 2010 Wimby draws were wimpy beyond measure.

Come back from 2 set down, beatdown Djok and Murray consecutively = joke draw. Good stuff, philosopher.

Nope, nothing comes close to slams (including AO which wasn't always the case) when it comes to tennis.
