    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...

    This is the practice shirt he wore during the Laver cup practice. The design is quite similar to the last years designs, and i think there is a bull logo on back... Anyone knows ? ;)

    Rafa's serve

    Does Rafa have the worst serve among the true greats? Genuine question. I was thinking about it and couldn't think of any other great for whom the serve was less of a weapon.

    First Title of The Great Players in Tennis History

    nadal to not drop a set at Wimbledon

    last year, i believed he dropped a set to Soderling and 2 sets to Haase and Petzschner each. this year, he will not drop a set, as i believe the gap is even wider. the guys a beast on green clay. gives you nothing. no question he will win 100% of his matches imo
