    Zverev 0-10

    I would go that far.

    Sleeveless muscle shirts just look …unprofessional to me in a tennis tournament.

    Yes, because a completely unknown club has more "dignity and class" than all the four Grand Slams. All the Grand Slams allow players to play sleeveless. Even at Wimbledon, the Holy Grail of class and elegance, players are allowed to wear a sleeveless T-shirt. Tennis players are performing a...

    Better chance against Nadal in the final?

    Tsitsipas is destroying Zverev so my comment makes 100% sense. Tsitsipas >>>>> Zverev on clay.

    Better chance against Nadal in the final?

    Tsitsipas is clearly a tougher matchup on clay. In Barcelona Tsitsipas represented a touguer matchup for Nadal than Zvevev did in Rome Madrid doesn't play like RG at all.

    No one is talking about Zverev

    I doubt it. Tsitsipas in Barcelona represented a tougher matchup for Nadal than Zverev in Rome. Not to mention, Tsitsipas (#1 in the race) is in better form than Zverev.

    History on Nadal's side?

    Tsitsipas made Nadal suffer in Montecarlo, while Zverev lost in straigth sets in Rome. Tsitsipas has had a superior season (leads the year race) and is in better form. There is literally nothing Zverev can do to damage Nadal in the PC. If Nadal were to face Zverev in a RG final, the Spaniard...

    How would todays Nadal go against his younger self on clay?

    Why Federer was not as dominant at Wimbledon than Nadal at Roland Garros ?

    Nadal did not allow Federer and Djokovic to become ATGs on clay. It is unfair to dismiss Federer and Djokovic as claycourters to attempt to make Nadal's competition look worse. Federer and Djokovic would each have won 5+ RG titles without Rafa. Federer did not stop Nadal and Djokovic in...

    GOAT debate ends on Friday

    Clay is a valid surface, all Slams are equally valid in the GOAT debate.

    GOAT debate ends on Friday

    I agree with you. You can't be considered the GOAT if you have less Slams than your rivals.

    GOAT debate ends on Friday

    The number of Slams is the most relevant all-time great criterion (with other criteria being tie-breakers in case two players are tied in Slams). You mention Djokovic's tie-breakers (weeks as #1, YE #1, ATP finals), but you strategically forgot to mention Nadal's tiebreakers (Olympics, H2H in...

    GOAT debate ends on Friday

    You seem to be the salty one. You assume your subjective opinions are objective facts, when they are not. Unlike what you asserted with subjectivity, the GOAT debate can indeed be "decided". By decided I don't mean 100% of the human population thinking that X player is the GOAT. I mean the...

    All the pressure on Djokovic

    As a Nadal and Roddick fan, I gotta admit that the whole pressure is on Nadal. It is RG. Nadal is the God of clay and is expected to destroy Djokovic at RG (as usual).

    Diego Schwartzman: I don't want to be in the same side of the draw next time with Rafa

    Then Djokovic was literally a pigeon, because Schwartzman was a much tougher opponent at RG 2020 than Novak was.

    Diego Schwartzman: I don't want to be in the same side of the draw next time with Rafa

    Schwartzman would have defeated Djokovic at RG both in 2020 and maybe 2021. In 2020 Schwartzman was a much tougher opponent than Novak for Nadal. Following your logic, Djokovic is a pigeon for Nadal at RG (unless you display now a double standard).

    Can serving save Novak?

    Schwartzman is a vastly, overwhelmingly superior returner than Berrettini. That is not an excuse. It is a fact.

    20-20-20 heading into the US Open

    So you are "not convinced by his matches" despite the fact that Rafa murdered superior clay opponents than Novak such as Schwartzman, but you are convinced that Novak "will put a tough figth" despite having lost multiple sets to inferior clay players than Schwartzman, including losing 2 sets...

    Djokovic is actually playing better than Nadal at the FO

    Nadal himself is post-prime. Post-prime Djokovic is easy for prime Nadal, but not for post-prime Nadal. P. S.: Nadal has also been facing Schwartzman, not only Thiem and Djokovic. Schwartman had chances to win RG 2018, RG 2020 and RG 2021 without Nadal.

    If it ended 20-20-19

    Sampras has more titles at 3/4 Majors than Nadal does. But still, Nadal is greater than Sampras because 20/21 > 14. Analogously, if Nadal were to win RG 2021, Nadal would become greater than Federer because 21 > 20. The number of Slams is the most relevant all-time great criterion. Nadal has...

    Just a reminder for anyone criticizing Jannik Sinner

    That is indeed a possibility. But Federer also could have won. Remember that, at RG 2011, Djokovic was the favorite over Federer, yet Federer won.
