    ^^^ Last time I checked Fed has a longer winning streak on clay than Nadal, and gave your boy a bagel. Now go put some cream cheese on it and eat it.

    Additionally, he has the longest winning streak, and most consecutive games won on clay.

    Only the best player in the world could end Rafa's winning streak, only the best player could defeat the King of Clay :lol:

    Now the question is: Who will win Roland Garros?

    Federer will win the French Open, we'll be officially watching the GOAT, and Simon Cowell will inhale every word he has said for the last year.

    Weak smack talk. 1 match is not that important. Everyone loses once in a while. For Nadal it took 3 years for him to lose a match on clay. lol

    Whatever Fed clown. The next bagel will be in the Final of Roland Garros. Fed will be disgruntled wasting another opportunity winning the French Open. :p

    fed clown oh how original, but your right the next bagel for nadal will be the final as you seem to forget nadal has NEVER bageled federer and never will but it seems nadal likes some humple pie from federer 2 times already and will be more.
    i think winning 3 slams a year is better than 1 no?

    6 matches on grass could mean 3 or more years.

    Nadal played a total of 16 ATP matches on grass in his life AFAIK.
    It is a phenominal records on grass considering the lack of experiences.

    As Federer gets older and Nadal gets more experiences on grass hard courts,
    we can safely assume Nadal will improve his head to head records
    against roger on hard courts and grass courts...

    Nadal is already as old in tennis years as Federer. By the time Federer is past his peak Nadal will be as well. A player who plays the way Nadal does only has a limited shelf life at the top level, and considering he started there so young it makes it even younger.

    Federer is the one improving vs Nadal on hard courts, not vice versa. Their first 2 matches on hard courts Nadal had an easy straight sets win, and Federer a real tough 5 sets win. Their next 2 matches on hard courts Nadal had a real tough 3 sets win, and Federer an easy straight sets win.

    As for grass it is highly unlikely they will ever play again on grass, unless Nadal's ranking drops enough he plays Federer in the quarters of Wimbledon or something. He certainly wont ever reach another Wimbledon final. If by some miracle he plays Federer on grass he will lose though obviously.

    Nadal started 6-1 head to head with Federer. It is now 7-4. The only one who is improving and will keep improving his head to head with Nadal on any surface is Federer.

    That thread was for Fedal on clay. Prediction was not illogical. Hamburg 2007 was Fed's 1st win over Nadal on clay. Of course, most people expected Nadal to win.

    No. It just shows that Nadal fans are arrogant when it comes to clay and need it as their trump card against Federer. Now that Federer is not giving Nadal the satisfaction and getting wins against Nadal, Nadal fans are getting desperate to meet Federer on clay.
