    Who Would Have Been the "Real" #1 if Novak Had Lost the 2011 Wimbledon Final?

    Novak would have still been the #1 player even if he had lost to RAFA in the 2011 Wimbledon final but in your opinion who would have been the "real" #1 player in the world had it happened? Since some give extra value for slams. Tournaments in that period: 2010 Canada: Nole SF, RAFA SF 2010...

    Rafa thanking Novak in Serbian for his contribution

    Two legends, huge respect between them. Rivals on court and friends off it. Nice to see in these tough times.

    Could Rafa have won 2016 French Open?

    Yesterday I was rewatching 2016 FO Final highlights, incredible tennis from both Novak and Andy. I remember being so happy for Novak to finally win the title after 3 lost finals (it would be a travesty if he didn't manage to get the career grand slam). That being said.. if Rafa didn't injure...

    Rafa shows middle finger to Novak

    Rafa clearly salty for ATP Cup loss, no? Disgraceful... Next year draw rigged with Berrettini in final, no?

    Fun trivia: did 2011 Rome have one of the most unbalanced draws ever?

    Just having bantz, don't get too pissy. Anyway, potential draw paths read as follows: (4) Murray: Malisse, Troicki, not Melzer [injured], Djokovic, Nadal (3) Federer: Tsonga, Gasquet, Berdych, Nadal, Djokovic (2) Djokovic: Kubot, Wawrinka, Söderling, Murray, Nadal (1) Nadal: Lorenzi...

    Nadal/Fognini Relationship

    Erase if thread already exists... I have noticed that Nadal and Fognini seem to get along throughout the Laver Cup, but in the past they have gotten into some heated arguments... I'll post "proof" later

    Centre Court vs Court No.1 speed comparison

    I've seen lots of people here saying how Nadal vs Querrey being scheduled on C1 is bad news for Nadal because of it playing a little faster than CC. I'd be interested to see what the reasons for this statement are.. C1 (on the right) is visibly much more worn down than CC (on the left), and...

    Nadal will win all clay tournaments this year

    Considering the terrible form of all the supposed contenders on clay, it's likely that Nadal will win for the 1st time in his career all the clay tournaments this year (the important ones, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros). Djokovic level and confidence are too low to beat...

    2018 Wimby Champion - Rafa

    Its an interesting Semi's line up. I was hoping for Delpo to make it to final two and then lift the trophy, I guess the psyche did its job. Having said that there's no doubt that RAFA is a great champion and deserved to win too!! I am going for RAFA to be the favorite to win the championship...

    A federer-nadal match this year - 2018

    I think the chances are too low. Last year, 3 of their 4 meetings were in the first half of the season (AO17 final, IW17 R4, Mia17 final) and the 4th was in october, Sha17 final. This year, first half has gone without a fedal match. Nadal skipped almost full HC season of the 1st quarter of the...

    Looking at Rafa's W% on clay

    Rafa's winning percentage on clay is often shown in a way that doesn't give it as much praise as it should receive. To show you what I mean I've used the formula y = x/(1-x) What this does is show how win percentage (x-axis) correlates with how many average wins/loss (y-axis) What this shows...

    How many sets will Rafa drop on clay this year?

    i think we all know that it’s a foregone conclusion that Rafa will sweep clay this year. So how many sets will he lose? Could he do it without dropping a set?

    Nadal's worst nightmare? One-hander on natural surfaces

    and the more natural one, the worse for Nadal... There is common view that one-handers are somehow handicaped when playing Rafa (because of his FH) and that this handicap is even greater on clay. What is the true? One-handers in general have just a little better winning percentage against...

    RG '08 Rafa vs Nole

    RG '08 is best known for its one sided, embarrassing loss of Fed against PEAKdal on clay. But the real gem in that tournament in Rafa vs Nole. The first 2 sets are a blowout. Nole comes to life in the 3rd, coming back from down a break and going toe to toe with the greatest Nadal we have seen...

    7 requirements for Rafa each match:

    1.) Must, absolutely must, take a million hours before each serve by pulling shorts from ass, bouncing ball, wiping nose, then one ear, then the other, bouncing ball more, grimacing, and then serving. If first serve is a fault, must go through whole routine again. 2.) Bottle labels must be...
