How can saying let’s get festive at thanksgiving be considered trolling lol!
It is not the festive spirit that is indicative of your trolling. I see that you are already pretty well versed in the flaming attempts, so I have no doubt that I am right about just about everything I said about you.

I really have no clue what you are talking about tbh.

Stating Nadal fans are going to have a great Christmas and bask in his glory is again not trolling.

Yet you are going on about this. BTW, you don't understand (just like all of you previously) that you are only confirming what I am saying with continuing to insist on how you feel about the Christmas time when defining it through your Nadal fandom. Christmas is time for family and friends (in real life, not imaginary). It is sad when you have to resort to your thoughts about a person that doesn't even know that you exist as a person in such a time. I hope that your reality is better than that.

Rafa 2019 was the best Christmas present for millions of his fans. Rafa is loved not just because he is the greatest sportsperson to have ever lived but because he is the nicest kindest most humble person anybody could wish to meet.

Milions of people have no better Christmas present than to think about Nadal?

That is sad on so many levels.

No man. He may be 3-1 against Federer at AO, which is a strike against Federer, but he has not reached his achievements on hardcourt, not even close. He's actually 8-6 against Federer on outdoor hardcourt. He did win 4 USOs but he did not win them at the peak of Federer. Federer's peak there was between 2004-2009 when he won 5 of them and Nadal didn't reach him to play him. You cannot say Nadal is comfortably the better outdoor hardcourt player when Federer has 11 Slams to his 5, and 20 Masters to his 9. Federer has double the success. Leading the head to head cannot negate that.
It is a slight strike against Fed, but:

1. They are 1-1 in finals, which are their biggest AO matches to date.

2. Nadal did not win 2 of the tournaments in which he beat Fed, so those wins brought him nothing.

It is a measure of how much he is loved. Only person I think was ever comparable was Elvis Presley.
I don't think that you understand what I am saying. If the best person the people can express their gratitude and passion about is a tennis player those people are seriously lacking on a personal level, no matter how much they might admire him.

Federer lost both SF matches though which is a definite strike especially when he won 2 more AOs after those losses and Rafa hasn't won it since 2009.

Look I like Rafa tons and do consider him to be ONE of the greatest sportsmen I have ever witnessed.

But come on, that is pure opinion, and if you wanted to make an argument on the most beloved tennis player (as football is bigger worldwide), then Fed would likely win that. He has shown this in every way possible (more crowd love, more sponsorship money, popularity world wide, etc)

So while Rafa is massive worldwide, and he may be the biggest sportsmen to you, it definitely is not a fact.

Actually has there ever been a poll done on most popular sportsperson ever?

Wonder who that would be? If anyone says Messi I will scream!!!! Surely has to be Muhamed Ali, Pele, Maradona, Nadal, Federer, senna, or Ronaldo(Portugal) and possibly Ronaldo (Brazil) or Bolt or Woods.

One of the above surely?

Yep, but it would vary widely depending on the question and people polled.

Is the question "who do you think is th most popular sportsperson?"

Or who is your favorite?

Is the poll evenly spread or are they younger or older?

Younger people will probably be in that Messi and ronaldo range. Older people will be in that Ali, Pele, Senna, and Maradona range.
