    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    I think both are tough lucks, but, for me, AO was more of a matter of bad luck because he had chances throughout many years being competitive and going the distance, but was more often than not held by injuries. Imagine if he were healthy during AO 10 or 11, who knows. I wouldn’t even call the...

    The way which ballkids are treated on both tours is nothing short of disgraceful.

    The video doesn’t show, but I guess not. I agree Nadal os nicer than Djokovic. I just think that accidentally hitting a ball of a return of serve into the ballboy isn’t that big of a deal. Completely different from when he randomly hit the line judge, for example. Like I said, I do think...

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    You just make a fool of yourself by saying these things. It’s okay if you think Andre is the better USO player, but subsequently saying Nadal is an undeserving champion just make your whole point looks brainless and yourself look bad. Just saying.

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    He didn’t say that. The best match of the 2013 season is probably the Nadal-Djokovic RG match followed closely by Djokovic-Wawrinka AO match, obviously.

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    Honestly, no amount of luck at the USO will make up for the AO tragedies.

    The way which ballkids are treated on both tours is nothing short of disgraceful.

    Not a good example. Nadal himself hit a ball girl by accident once in Australia. He then went and apologized. I’ve seen Djokovic act all bossy toward ballkids quite a few times, but that’s not it.

    Toni Nadal on Federer’s retirement: “ Federer peak is unrepeatable in Tennis history.”

    Both are true, I’d say. Yes, Roger was playing mugs. Yes, he’s peak was astonishing to say the least. Those combined caused the astronomical dominance numbers he’s produced during such period.

    Does Novak Djokovic have a real shot at Federer's slam record?

    I don’t see the probably in Nadal supposedly declining faster than Fed. His style warrants that, but it payed off in the end as Nadal surpassed Rog in so many important long term stats. Yet, watch Nadal win another Slam even older than Fed was when he won his last and end such decline and...

    Does Novak Djokovic have a real shot at Federer's slam record?

    I don’t believe any of the fans here are in a position to acuse karma. There’s a lot of bragging coming from all sides and it’s not like any of the fan bases are saints.

    Will Nadal round his resume? Where is his biggest chace?

    The only shot Nadal still has is the ATPF, I think. He’s been skipping Miami already and after missing Paris this year he’ll probably start skipping it too in the future. I wouldn’t say it’s absolutely certain Nadal won’t win the YEC, tho.

    "Are you glad Novak Djokovic exists?"

    That’s actually REALLY good from him. Especially those first three goals. Great dribbling, shooting and awareness. He chose right, tho.

    Borg was better than Fedy at Wimbledon

    Where did I see this nonsense before? Oh wait

    Djokovic v Federer ( End of 2010 - 2011 )

    Well, yeah. If not for him, Nadal would probably have made it to 5 straight Slam wins. That’s part of what makes these 3 guys the undeniable goats (for me Nadal the most of them): they’re three ATGs playing at insane level, creating tons of epics and holding each other off all the time in the...

    Djokovic v Federer ( End of 2010 - 2011 )

    He did grow a bit his build, but overall he looked grown. As in if he was a boy then became a man in 2011. He’s posture on court, his fight and his overall looks. He improved in so many aspects, but what sums up for me is he suddenly grown into a man. Compare him and Nadal in 2010 and then again...

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    Well, one could argue that Andre’s titles were also vultures. Maybe not that better than 19.

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    Well, if we would separate “better” in three factors: 1. Success 2. Overall results 3. Peak level I’d give the edge to Nadal 2-1 against Andre. Nadal has obviously more success in 4-2, whilst Andre has more deep runs, but I believe despite one could argue that Andre’s good runs even out the two...

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    I believe 10 Nadal did beat Nole, who’s comfortably above such caliber.

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    What? Did you basically just said “if we’re including titles to Nadal’s titles, we should also add losses do Agassi’s titles in comparison.”?

    Agassi is better than Nadal at the USO

    Hmm, I don’t think so. You could dispute peak for peak, but Nadal would easily edge 04 Agassi out physically

    Borg was better than Nadal at the French Open

    Well, I do believe comparisons across eras can be made through analysis of an ATG dominance against his fellow contemporaries. That said, the weak/strong era arguments are inevitable and reasonable. I agree that it’s a bit excessive to say said ATG would completely dominate another ATG if they...

    Borg was better than Nadal at the French Open

    After 14 French titles and 137-3 record in BO5 matches lost on clay throughout his 20y career, I like his odds. I respect you, your opinion and of course Borg, but Nadal being clay goat is the most undisputed fact in tennis history.

    Borg was better than Nadal at the French Open

    I don’t think his equipment matters too much. A player’s quality should be assessed through his outcomes against the field. Borg played with an old racquet against players with old racquets. Whilst Nadal played with modern racquets against players with modern racquets. There’s nothing inflated...

    If you kept the 1990's conditions and gut strings, the future of the game wouldn't be this bleak.

    I can’t seem to understand people who are so fond of ball-bashing, 2 shot avg points and S&V. The drama in rallying and the boundaries pushed by poly are very good.

    Nadal - Djokovic H2H off clay

    I actually think Nadal had a legit chance at beating Nole at AO 12 (hence the epic) and AO 19 as well. The fact the match was a beat down doesn’t mean Nadal didn’t have a legit chance coming into the match. Same thing for Nole at RG 20. Djokovic had a more than legit chance at winning that RG...

    Nadal - Djokovic H2H off clay

    That’s a bit biased. Djokovic has seen the AO final from inside the court on 9 occasions - in two of them he faced Nadal. Nadal has seen the AO final 6 times - Djokovic was only there 2 times as well. The difference is obvious, but not so one sides as people are made to believe and it’s surely...

    Nadal - Djokovic H2H off clay

    It has to be noted that 8 out of 14 and 2 out of 9 is a biased conclusion. 14 title runs for Nadal at RG covers for almost every RG edition since they’ve become top players. Whilst 9 title runs doesn’t cover as much of the AO editions played by them as top players - Nadal himself reached 4...

    Nadal - Djokovic H2H off clay

    Same argument could be used for Nadal. 2010 - Winner 2011 - Runner up 2012 - Injury 2013 - Winner 2014 - Injury Had he been in form at both 2012 and 2014, he could very much have won those. Also, having won AO 19 would not guarantee a win at the USO against Nadal at all for Nole. It’d be an open...

    How many times has Nadal choked a match?

    I felt so too.
