    Nadal has only ever lost slam finals to Federer and Djokovic

    I am sure that despite calling yourself a Nadal fan you have not watched Nadal in the mid-late 00s .... Anybody who insults Federer to glorify Nadal is like spitting towards the sky and then the spit landing on their own face. Rafa was an exceptional beast in the 00s but he could not win HCs...

    Fed: A 20 time slam winner that should have won 30

    A trash clay courter like Sampras would never have won a French open in the modern era .... he failed in the 90s, he would do worse in the presence of Nadal who would run circles around him

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    No those were washed out versions whom he defeated. There is a big difference in the energy levels of Fedal of 00s and 2010s. It is not Novak's fault but he has not faced Peak Fedal in his own peak.

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    People who have watched tennis for decades know that Federer has been the most dominant force in the history of this universe. Novak is nowhere even close, some 18 month stretch over some washed out rivals won't make him special All you need to do is watch tennis from 04-13 and you will find...

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    Vs top 10 .... Fed 50-6 win% 89.29 (over 33 months) vs Novak's 54-6 90 (over 18 months) Plus Fed's losses came vs superfast Nadal at his peak on clay and vs Peak Safin (who had the power to spank Novak on his buttocks). Novak's losses came vs 34 yr old Fed (4 times) and twice vs murray...

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    He doesn't have to hold all 4 slams. His rival Nadal on clay was higher than any rival Novak ever faced in the 2010s in terms of level of play. Vs that Nadal this Novak of 2010s would be crushed mercilessly .... Nadal was a savage ...

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    Win % of 95+ over a period of 33 months is far ahead of some 18 months silly stretch when your biggest challenger is some 33-34 yr old ATG, LOL

    The greatest ever 18 month run in ATP history

    Federer from Halle 2004 till Dubai 2007 225-11 which is a 95% win record overall In Slams in this period - 71-3 which is a 95.96% win record overall. This is the Most dominant stretch by any player in history

    Djokovic has never left Roland Garros as the only undefeated player

    Nope, Federer did himself a big favor by not retiring in 2012 and continuing until 2021-2022. IFs and BUTs type glorification of yesteryear greats only happens in TTW, in the real world recency bias takes over bigtime. In the real world legacies look different in 10-20 years time, like for...

    Could any Big 3 member could beat Prime Bruguera on Clay and Prime PETE on Carpet in the same season?

    Federer has 70% win record on carpets He will do it in any era..

    Could any Big 3 member could beat Prime Bruguera on Clay and Prime PETE on Carpet in the same season?

    Nobody can do it. Seregei Bruguera can only be beaten by Nadal and Nadal cannot beat Sampras on carpets&grass Federer can beat Sampras on carpets&grass but he cannot beat Sergei Bruguera on Clay. Djokovic has some chance of sneaking in wins but chances are very very very less....

    How would you classify the psychology/mindsets of different ATGs ???

    Federer was fit as a fiddle but the age gap ensured that Novak had more energy and he knew in the back of his mind that he could outlast Fed.

    If Nadal didn't have his own era, then did he have the toughest competition? - 18 slam finals against Fedovic!

    I had HCs in mind when I wrote that. Nadal's slams on hc from 05-08 were ???

    How would you classify the psychology/mindsets of different ATGs ???

    I feel that as an athlete there are 3 States of mind where you can be in : 01. A state of confidence 02. A state of superiority complex 03. A state of inferiority complex Confidence is good to have when you are playing anyone, it keeps you believing in yourself but you are not too carried...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    At the USO and W Novak is far from being GOAT Yes he is rhe GOAT at AO, who beat him there? It was a certain animal called stanimal, not Murray Plus stanimal is one of the 3 guys who won the French open in last 16 years without having a surname of Nadal....so that matters too, wonder why...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    Murray would be a significantly weaker player if born 6 years earlier, those extra 6 years of better nutrition, modern day training that honed his grinding skills in the baseline would now not exist if he turned pro in the SNV era. He wins a max of 3-4 slams even in this era with 2006 being the...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    A full motivated Safin born in the house of Srdjan Djokovic as Novak's older brother would go on to win 6-8 slams Upbringing matters....

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    I wish Safin had won 5-6 slams, he certainly deserved to be in a higher tier than he is. He occasionally being a clown prince with poor work ethic cost him...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    Safin's feats Took down Sampras in Slams (twice), including a US Open final in 2000. Beat Agassi in Slams (twice), including a huge win in 2004. Beat Kuerten at the FO when Guga was in his prime. And again at the AO the next year (the only time that Kuerten lost before the QF in a Slam that...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    Sadly Murray could not even be that opportunist, his peak was that bad ! His Wimbledon and USO itself were vs tired/not yet at peak on grass Novak. His 2016 wimbledon and year end rankings all came at a time when big 3 collapsed and whole of tennis was down with injuries

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    08 Safin beat Novak in 08 after Novak reaching 2 grand slam finals and winning 1 of them as well So Safin is a legit threat to Novak as well, 2-0 H2H in slams, he would have been an advanced version of wawrinka if they were in same gen

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    Exactly Thats why I said, all of these fellows including Murray would divide slams before Nadal touched top gear. It would be like 3-4 slams among them all, none of them would defend slams, we would have different winners every year.

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    Murray beat your boy 2 times, ohh yes, thats his only achievement! Murray's win over Nadal at 08USO was also good but then lets face it, Nadal wasn't great on HCs yet. Murraty's win over an injured Nadal at 2010AO or over an injured Fed in 2013 in Fed's worst year won't give him any credit...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    He can better for all he wants but that still isn't giving him more slams because Stan will produce superlative performances in those 2-3 matches that Murray cannot. So despite being better Murray won't be better in slams tally. This topic is about slams tally, so peak levels are involved...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    On a scale of playing gears from 0 to 10 where 10 is the absolute peak level we witnessed in last 20 years (Nadal's 2008 french open can be 10) This is how the greats of the last 20 years operated .... 01. Federer IMO is the only Tennis player who regularly/or on most days operates on an avg...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    Murray can be higher in masters, olympics, slam Qf/semis appearances etc etc Congrats to him But that is all useless once he reaches the semis/finals and meet that guy who has a higher peak level than him, Murray has been a guy with extremely consistent level of play vs mediocre players...

    Put Sir Andrew Barron Murray in the 2003-2009 era instead of Federer, how does he do?

    I don't think Murray can stretch peak Safin to 5 sets. It would be a 4 sets affair.

    Who has the most years between their first and last Slam appearance ?

    Just appearing for a slam is not enough. Biggest span of winning slams in the open era - Serena - 17.5 years Biggest span of appearing in a grand slam final - Serena - 20 years However if doubles included and just appearing for a slam, the it is Navratilova for sure....
