Rafa will be considered the GOAT by June anyway, since he will be on 21 slams. This WTF is simply the cherry on a very large cake.
but Hewitt did beat the greatest HC player of all time Federer in a Bo5 match very close to his prime (Davis Cup 2003)Credibility goes downhill when someone thinks Hewitt is beating the greatest HC player of all time in his prime in a BO5 match.
Nice try though.
Peak Murray, Goating Nishikori all beat Hewitt.but Hewitt did beat the greatest HC player of all time Federer in a Bo5 match very close to his prime (Davis Cup 2003)
you also lose all credibility pretending Novak is anywhere near top 3 at USO level wise or achievements wise.
Beating djokovic at USO - Frickin Nishikori did it. Stan did it. Murray did it. All 3 worse at the USO than Hewitt.
Your tennis IQ/knowledge is -ve. That's the reality.
Nadal’s beaten more slamless slam finalists than Fed has.add Bagdatis to mix as well. Seriously how one on earth can compare Fed 20 to Nadal 20. Fed had a free run which stopped as soon as Nadal/Djoko emerged on the scene and you want to use that free run as an argument against Nadal/djokovic? bamboozling indeed..
2014 USO Nishikori is beating Hewitt in 4 sets. Hewitt could only dream of playing that aggressively for the course of a match. Hewitt beats any other Nishikori though, correct.lmao @ any version of Nishikori over Hewitt.
Even 90's Clay would have been offended by this.2014 USO Nishikori is beating Hewitt in 4 sets. Hewitt could only dream of playing that aggressively for the course of a match. Hewitt beats any other Nishikori though, correct.
Hewitt took the ball early but Nishikori took the ball early and changed direction consistently.
When has Prime Hewitt ever displayed the aggression and level that Nishikori did in that match. He was ripping backhand winners unconsciously from everywhere on that court.Even 90's Clay would have been offended by this.
Take USO 2005 SF vs Fed for example:When has Prime Hewitt ever displayed the aggression and level that Nishikori did in that match. He was ripping backhand winners unconsciously from everywhere on that court.
No ones denying that Hewitt wipes the floor with Nishikori in most of their matches but not in that USO 2014 SF.
Djokovic has only one FO and three USO, that’s only 4 total at 50% of the majors. That is sad too?Bottom line is that Nadal is a one trick pony who can’t win consistently off the dirt. He’s only got one two Wimbledon titles and one Australian. That is 3 titles total at 50 % of the majors. That is sad. His resume is way too skewed and he’s not nearly as well rounded as Federer or Djokovic. He’s way too one dimensional.
Since the beginning of time it’s always been a fact that you need to be considered dominant at Wimbledon and an arguable grass GOAT to be considered the greatest of all time.
Nadal is 0-15 against Federer/Djokovic outside of clay since 2013US/2014AO
How do Fed and Djoko fare against him on clay since 2013?
It's all in the thread title.
If he wins the WTF, he will have done everything. Olympic Gold, all four grand slams, tied for most grand slams, many weeks at #1 and most at #2, Masters, clay supremacy. There's just no path for Djokovic or Federer to overtake him anymore once Nadal closes the deal here. That will be it for at least a generation or two.
