Irrelevant. Djokovic was a shell of himself at Wimbledon and went in slamless that year losing to mugs like istomin and with no confidence and still beat Nadal. When he finally got winning slams again and confident he crushed Nadal in straights at AO
That make Nadal a one trick pony? And considering Fed and Djokovic both have titles in their weakest slams and the WTF (literally ATP's biggest tournament) and Nadal doesn't.... Nadal isn't complete. He is also far less complete than Djokovic who has all the slams, masters, WTF and has beaten his main rivals everywhere while Nadal hasn't
Disagree. Little pressure on Nadal as he has won his pet slam this year. Federer is at his pet slam and has to win it. No question Federer has the pressure, like Nadal did in Paris and Djokovic did in Melbourne.
Wimbledon isn't really his pet Slam, although it's his best of the 4. At his peak, AO, W, and USO were all his pet Slams. After he got older, he couldn't beat the younger Nadal and Djokovic consistently.
I don't think you can say Rafa mastered clay, he just hasn't faced anyone of Borg, Lendl, Kuerten caliber on clay. Fed has beaten Sampras on fast grass with smaller racket and Pete was way closer to his prime than Fed was.
Consider that Rafa just beat Roger in Paris a month ago and narrowed the slam gap, but she still is a trolling, mindless hater. I can't imagine inhabiting this brain or this heart. Pitiful beyond belief and frankly, Rafa deserves a higher caliber fan than this.
