    Nadal vs Federer U.S Open 2019 G.O.A.T MATCH

    So federer should win this, he's beaten Nadal 6-1 since 2014 and Nadal hasn't beaten him off clay since then either. He has the advantage of a much easier draw, more rest time between the semi's and the final. The stars are all aligned. However if he dosen't it means Nadal has the federer slam...

    I think Djokovic's the best in the world right now...

    on hard courts at least. He's been to the last two slam finals, losing to a ralph who's played the best he's ever played at the us open. Regardless of the outcome of himself and ferrer/murray in the final. He's done really well since the atrocious French Open 2010 serving fiasco. I think his...

    Congratulations to Novak Djokovic on winning his first U.S. Open Championship

    You're the best and you're in great company, following in the footsteps of Juan Martin Del Potro in defeating Nadal and Fed in the slams consecutively. 2 slams and surpassing the greatness of Sir Andrew Roddick on the same level as legends such as Lleyton Hewitt.

    Facing the possibility of a career threatening and forever most talked about subject in tennis history, the tentatively titled, CAREER Slam domination of one of the greatest if not THE greatest rivalries of all time. Already 2-6 in gs, and 2-5 in GS finals, across all surfaces no less, Federer...

    2010 is the BEGINNING of Prime Nadal

    His prime should last around 2-3 years. He'll be a threat at slams to a lesser extent for another 1-2 years after that. :) (Barring Injuries and if he takes care of his knees and scheduling.)
  9. Turning Pro

    Nadal should have 8-10 slams now and Fed should have 13-15.

    Too bad he overplayed and aggravated an injury last year for the FO and Wimby. It probably would have been an 5-0 at the french, 7-2 in gs and 6-2 in GS finals across all surfaces. Wimby, we all know he pushes federer and it would probably be another 4-5 set epic. Federer is lucky. Another...

    Hewitt back in Top 20. I predict a good 2010 providing he can remain injury free with a top 10 year end finish and possibly a masters place. The AO 10 he can gain ranking points and do some damage with a good...

    If an Injured Nadal beats Fed at the US Open on Nadals worst and Feds Best surface

    If Nadal beats Fed at the US Open on Nadals worst and Feds Best surface Then Federer is indisputedly NOT the GOAT. And Nadal isn't even the GOAT yet or even ever. Imagine if players like Sampras, Agassi, Lendl, Connors, Becker etc in their primes were in this era. Henman, Hewitt in their primes...

    Safin's U.S Open

    Well it's apparatantly his last slam ever? How well will he do? I'm guessing 3rd/4th round at best. But i'd obviously wouldn't mind if won the whole damn thing, but i doubt it very much. Comments?

Roddick broke overall more times then Fed in the match yet still loses? lol federers luck and his weak field of competition between 03-07 when Nadal, Djoker and Murray not even at their peaks proves he isn't the G.O.A.T but Laver is and Sampras is above him purely because...

    Should Nadal have won in straight sets in the 08 W Final?

    Well if the roof was in play for 08 or no rain delays, it may not have been the best match ever. Should Nadal have finished it in 4 anyways with the match points? How about the 07 W Final where he was lucky Nadal had an injury in the 4th and Fed was crying about the line-call and wanting for...

    Nadal will still win Wimbledon 09.

    And he'll mostly likely win the French next year. It took one of the best clay court performances of recent years and a freak, once in a lifetime performance to dethrone a very off Nadal. Nadal isn't going anywhere. :twisted: People forget he's still the reigning Aus Open champion, won 2...

    2009 Predictions.

    Federer will have no more than 2 slams. A slightly better year than 2008 overall. If Nadal and Federer both reach the Wimbledon final and both are fit, then Nadal will win it. Murray will not win a slam. Safin for a minor resurgence. (Top 20) Hewitt for a minor resurgence. (Top 20)...
