    Roger's arrogance

    Probably not that tough to be good for one match on the whole year ;)

    Who else thought Rafa would finish the year No. 2???

    But you disregard the huge gap among the top 5 players. He may be still no.4 but the distant with the top 2 is big. No If, why not if Nadal did close off the win in Miami vs Federer? Nadal cannot beat players who didn't show up, you discrediting his titles because the draw is weak has...

    Best Backhand

    That is Moya. Fed forehand is definitely much more a weapon than his bh, but that is not a proof to say his bh is nowhere near Gaudio Guga and Gasquet. That is an exaggeration.

    Who else thought Rafa would finish the year No. 2???

    Yes all true but he is not exactly that cluelss on other surfaces except perharps grass. He did beat Ivan the then hottest player on his favourite surface in Madrid. We also know he was very close to beating Federer in Miami and Hewitt at AO. Hewitt hardly even show up 2nd half of the year...

    Who else thought Rafa would finish the year No. 2???

    No such thing as real #2 or not. Nadal earned his no.2 this year and don't forget he did give Hewitt a very tough match in AO and I will not be at all surprise if he does well in coming AO but I do agree he still has lots to prove on surfaces other than clay till then he is not ready to take...

    Worst player to win a slam?

    Ferrero? If anything, I think Ferrero should be winning more slams. He has some of the best groundstrokes I had ever watched among the current players. Watch his match against Federer on grass this year in Wimbledon. I wish it is him dominating the clay now instead of Nadal anytime.

    Best Backhand

    All true except not many players of today have the ability to keep pressing Federers backhand to break it down. It used to be but not anymore. You cannot say his backhand is not in the league of Gaudio or Guga or Gasquet, because they use it very differently. Federer has more varieties in his...

    How could Tim Henman improve to win a slam??

    Maybe with the Henmanhill turning into Murraymount now, he might just win the Wimbledon for all you know.

    Roger Federer Should be Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year

    Isn't that what my second point of my original post was about? Tennis competing with the locally much more favourite sports, not going to win, so the point is? Did I say Federer should have won it when all other tennis greats haven't? You used Sampras as an example and I asked you which...

    Roger Federer Should be Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year

    Did Sampras ever have one particularly great year like Federers of 2004 or 2005? I thought Sportsman of the year assess their achievements of that particular year. JMac might be better comparison. They should just call this the US Sportsman of the year. I don't understand why won't they...

    Roger Vs Pete !?

    It is not ok to tell others they are wrong but don't bother to explain how. Until you do, I don't think I read you any wrong especially when I have analysed what you said quote by quote.

    Nalbandian has got "CUP without Masters".

    Winning the "Cup" beating the "Masters" make him the Master.

    Roger Vs Pete !?

    So comparing players in differnt circumstances does not work for you, but you are able to conclude sampras time has tougher competitors than Federer? Dude, you are really contradicting yourself. I am confused. So Federer has excellent records against his fellow top ten players, but that is...
