    Clay 2004-09 Federer vs 2011-16 Djokovic

    Nadal pummels excellent one handers on clay such as Wawrinka, Federer and Gasquet. Your stats are inflated due to losses to Thiem at minor tournaments. He massacres Thiem whenever they meet at RG. The only other losses to one handers on clay I can think off over the last decade are one offs to...

    Clay 2004-09 Federer vs 2011-16 Djokovic

    Are you trying to say that returning a high bouncing topspin shot on a clay court is easier with a one hander than a two hander? If you are welcome to the ignore list.

    Clay 2004-09 Federer vs 2011-16 Djokovic

    From 04-09 Federer lost only to Nadal and Kuerten at the French. Djokovic by contrast lost to Federer, Nadal and Wawrinka.

    Clay 2004-09 Federer vs 2011-16 Djokovic

    Obviously Djokovic matches up better with Nadal on clay with his two hander. Any idiot knows this. Federer’s one hander is susceptible to Nadal on clay. Federer on the other hand has beaten Djokovic multiple times on clay when he was past his best and djokovic was peaking. Federer can wrong...

    Does Nadal NEED at least 1 ...

    Nadal is the GOAT retriever. I’ve never seen a player push and retrieve as well as him.

    Anyone else feel like Nadal's poor record at the ATP Tour Finals has made the tournament less significance?

    Nadal’s a bum on indoor hardcourt which is why he can’t win. His one dimensional style of play does not work as effectively there. Hes incapable of taking the ball on the rise and his serve and return are garbage. Indoor hard is not a pushers surface.

    2019 has been the worst year for Fed fans

    The only real opposition for Nadal and Djokovic was an old Federer. Djokovic just beat 38 year old Federer so win Wimbledon. That’s like Federer beating Sampras to win the title next year haha.

    USO slam tally: Roger vs Rafa 5-4. Really weird, huh?

    Fed is great on slow surfaces but the US Open is supposed to be very fast hardcourt like when Sampras was winning it.

    i dont believe Rafa is capaple of winning slams after 35

    I honestly thought he looked terrible against Medvedev last night. He looked slow and was playing short balls all night. If he would have run up against Djokovic in Aussie form or a Federer in Wimbledon form he would have got killed. Nadal still has a lockdown on the French as his only real...

    USO slam tally: Roger vs Rafa 5-4. Really weird, huh?

    This is the truth. The US open is like Miami now. It used to be comparable to Cincinnati. Watch highlights from 05 and watch the winners just fly. They’ve turned the courts into a defensive push fest. I mean look at how many Cinci titles Federer has won. This should equal the amount of US Open...

    2019 has been the worst year for Fed fans

    Didn’t Cilic beat Nadal at the Aussie? If Federer could get some bum opponents in the finals he could rack up some more ala Nadal. Unfortunately an ancient Federer just can’t beat a younger Djokovic. Federer has been pummeling Nadal outside clay for years now.

    2019 has been the worst year for Fed fans

    Federer has more grand slam finals does he not? I think he’s won 4 and lost 4 to Djokovic in his 30’s. He wasn’t fortunate enough to get easy slam opponents like Anderson and Medvedev. He constantly was running into a prime Djokovic while he was old. Federer has been extremely unlucky with the...

    This victory is sweetest of them of all.

    Come on let’s be serious, Medvedev is a young guy who’s accomplished nothing. He’s nowhere near a prime Federer or Djokovic. Nadal should have given 10 games max and pummeled him like Montreal.

    7 slam titles outside RG

    I disagree. No way is a federer’s resume more skewed, give your head a shake. He also made a ton of Roland Garros finals being stopped by one guy that would have made his resume immaculate.

    This victory is sweetest of them of all.

    How is it the sweetest when he squeaked by a 23 year old guy who hasn’t yet accomplished anything? It’s like Federer saying the 2006 Aussie Open was his greatest achievement.
