SlayThat he was 2nd in the decade dominated by Federer and also 2nd in the decade dominated by Djokovic.

Therefore, he was their greatest rival.

It tells longevity of Rafa is second to none

That he was 2nd in the decade dominated by Federer and also 2nd in the decade dominated by Djokovic.

Therefore, he was their greatest rival.

Nadal was the first in the decade dominated by Nadal (2006-2015). Nadal won 13 Slams in 2006-2015, more than any other male tennis player in that decade.Slay

P. S.: a decade is any period of ten years.

Savage post.That he was 2nd in the decade dominated by Federer and also 2nd in the decade dominated by Djokovic.

How did Nadal actually dominate 2014 and 2015?Nadal was the first in the decade dominated by Nadal (2006-2015).

P. S.: a decade is any period of ten years.

Obviously, @Nole Slam writes aboutNadal was the first in the decade dominated by Nadal (2006-2015).

P. S.: a decade is any period of ten years.

More than 50 matches played:

Djokovic - Nadal

Djokovic - Federer

And Djokovic leads both H2H.

Djokovic - Nadal

Djokovic - Federer

And Djokovic leads both H2H.

Only overtaking both in the H2H once they were past their primes.More than 50 matches played:

Djokovic - Nadal

Djokovic - Federer

And Djokovic leads both H2H.

Just like he should do....

Not beating Djokovic and being past their primes are two different things.Only overtaking both in the H2H once they were past their primes.

Just like he should do....

Then this would make Djokovic the greatest rival hmmMore than 50 matches played:

Djokovic - Nadal

Djokovic - Federer

And Djokovic leads both H2H.

And since 2015? 7-1 for Gramps, sorry to tell you, mate. (and yes, it is 7-1, not 6-2 like you claimed last year).Though I don’t know if you can call 10-4 (hidden 15-4) in Slams a rivalry. More like Nadal schooled Federer and he had no place to hide.

fixed it for ya palIt tells longevity of Rafa is second to Roger

best #2Nadal is simply the greatest.

best wingman

best injured person playing tennis

It’s 6-1 and not 8-1 like you wish it was. 1 win in 2015, 4 in 17 and 1 in 19.And since 2015? 7-1 for Gramps, sorry to tell you, mate. (and yes, it is 7-1, not 6-2 like you claimed last year).

Let’s count together, it’s really simple:

1 (one, uno) + 4 (four, cuatro) + 1 (one, uno) = ?

almost like in 2011, like there was no tomorrowHow did Nadal actually dominate 2014 and 2015?

and if you count all the matches where Nadal didn't show up while Rogerio was waiting?It’s 6-1 and not 8-1 like you wish it was. 1 win in 2015, 4 in 17 and 1 in 19.

Let’s count together, it’s really simple:

1 (one, uno) + 4 (four, cuatro) + 1 (one, uno) = ?

This definitely makes Djokovic the champion of champions!But Djokovic costs Federer more than Nadal costs him. Think of all those Wimbledon crowns, and all those match points!

And Djokovic costs Nadal more than Federer. Think of the 7 straight finals losses!

it tells us that he is the best top 10 player, with the consecutive 800+ weeks in top 10Nadal is the greatest rival of BOTH of his contemporaries.

So,

I ask you,

What does this tell us?

an achievement that probably won't be beaten by the likes of A Zverev, Berrettini, Tsitsipas, Agut, Goffin

but unfortunately not the best #1, which is the goal in any sport

so, ladies and gentlemen, let's award the best top 10 player award right where it belongs, to the ombeelibable Rafa!

He is #2Nadal is the greatest rival of BOTH of his contemporaries.

So,

I ask you,

What does this tell us?

Devastating soul shatteringBut Djokovic costs Federer more than Nadal costs him. Think of all those Wimbledon crowns, and all those match points!

And Djokovic costs Nadal more than Federer. Think of the 7 straight finals losses!

Nadal has owned Djokovic their whole career. 20-18. Federer era. Then Nadal era. Slay.

Therefore, he was their greatest rival.

Djokovic is the third wheel. Slay.Nadal is the greatest rival of BOTH of his contemporaries.

So,

I ask you,

What does this tell us?

20>18Nadal has owned Djokovic their whole career. 20-18. Federer era. Then Nadal era. Slay.

Djokovic had no era, bud. Roflmao.

I'm salty.

Every time I watch a match with Fedr in it I barrack for the other guy. No matter who he is. Fedr is just a biatch. On the other side every time Nadl plays I want him to win as long as Djok is still in the game. If he isn't then Nadl must go down. If he is, I want Nadl to be in the final with Djok. Why? It's simple. If Djok wins it means he won legit. If he loses, well he lost to Nadl, so it is OK either way. But the orgasm comes at 40-15 on a MP if he plays Fedr in a final. Or when he plays Nadl like Dubai 16 in the final.

Otherwise

What does hidden mean here?Though I don’t know if you can call 10-4 (hidden 15-4) in Slams a rivalry. More like Nadal schooled Federer and he had no place to hide.

US Open AvoidererWhat does hidden mean here?

Ah... well, can't the same case be made for Nadal not reaching Federer at slams? What counts as avoiding?US Open Avoiderer

Nadal is ONE year older. ONE.Only overtaking both in the H2H once they were past their primes.

Just like he should do....

You mean younger.He is ONE year older than Nadal. ONE.

Yeah, my bad. Meant Nadal is one year older.You mean younger.

I mean, you can make this statement about any of the big 3, like a revolving wheel

That he is a clay court specialist in an age when no one else is so he gets to vulture clay tournaments at a high rate? Just guessing this is what you meantNadal is the greatest rival of BOTH of his contemporaries.

So,

I ask you,

What does this tell us?

If we take a period of, say, 4 years for peak duration, Federer's peak would be 2004-2009, Djokovic's 2011-2015. Nadal peaked earlier on grass than on hard, but you could say he peaked between 2007/8 and 2011/12. His best year slam-wise was 2010, which if you take those years for peak Fed and Novak, is the one year he had which was both, his very peak, and the best on none other direct rival. Also won the clay slam that year; only time he did. He was injured in 2009 and had to retire in the 2010 AO, but maybe could have had a shot at the cygs.

Then it should be 2001-2010 and 2011-2020; there was no year 0.Obviously, @Nole Slam writes aboutcalendar decades, ie the 2000s (2000-2009) and 2010s (2010-2019) decades.

Djokovic is also Nadal's greatest rival, because he inflicted much more damage on Nadal than anyone else!
