To Nadal fans. It's time you admit it

Most Nadal fans accept that as a fact. Federer fans are usually the ones who try to diminish Nadal's achievements and try to prove at all cost that Federer is better. Yesterday's thread about 11 Wimbledon finals being better than 10 RG titles just proved once more that some of Federer's fans (not all, but some) are the worst fans ever.

I've been a Nadal fan for 11 years, and for not a day of that was Nadal ahead of Federer in accomplishments, but for EVERY day of that, Federer fans have been insecure. Federer is in the final tomorrow and Nadal is out of the tournament, and Nadal is still on you guys' brain. During the FO final Nadal fans felt no need to bring Federer up..... #OhTheIrony

Like anyone took that seriously.

It surely is a stupid thread even in jest, though.

Old news.

Call me when Nadal fans accept that he is not in any way near a GOAT player because his actual dominance has basically been on 1 surface his entire life. Not every surface like Federer and several other past greats.

Things in tennis can change very fast. Imagine Cilic beating Federer tomorrow and Nadal winning the USO beating Federer in the final and finishing the year at #1. Nadal would all of a sudden only be two slams behind and still five years younger. The debate would become hotter and more intense than ever. Stop being arrogant.

If this actually bothers anyone they need their head checked. Nadal is epic, keep it moving.

I think we should let Federer play his career out before we hassle him with GOAT debates.

Let's enjoy this incredible player while he is still on court and worry about the GOAT debates when the dust finally settles.

Who knows? Federer might end up with something like 21, 22 majors. It sounds ridiculous but might be possible. It's not fair to weigh up his stats while he is still going.

The same goes for Nadal, who has reinvigorated his career this year and leads the ATP race to London despite being over 30. He also looks like he will still win a lot more.

this thread would make better sense if he wins it tomorrow and even then not really, like why bring up more fanwars as if we haven't already had those. just stop being obnoxious

If you think Nadal's achievements on hardcourt and grass are bad then you can't say Federer dominates on every surface. Federer's results on clay are worse than Nadal's outside of clay.

sorry about that :)
lmao maybe but the past few days, I admit I've been on edge too, have been insane and the OP's post was completely unnecessary. idk why bring up nadal or his fans and esp b/c fed hasn't even won yet and all this antagonizing other fanbases is seriously making me even more nervous for tomorrow

If that happened Nadal's resume would still be too clay heavy and along with never winning a single WTF he just isn't a GOAT candidate. Also never defending a title off clay is pretty laughable.

Slow news day. Even then I have read much better ones than this.

Anti-Fed fans finally seeing the light is more like tabloid material.

I wish the letters G O A T were blocked from this forum...
The following words contain any of those letters:

MTO, banana, chair, plate, reflection, tendinitis, court, draw, tired, motivation, fracture, tear, back injury, real tennis, blue clay, TUE, balls, ranking, rusty, peak, long layoff, focus, appendicitis, cheating, family issues

You realize what that means, don't you?

His biggest rival-pigeon threw away all his trophies.

Federer is player who thrives from special weak situations in men's tennis. Sorry, no goat there.

Damn it OP you're making us all look bad.
1: He hasn't even won the tournament yet, you're going to look especially silly if Fed loses
2: The ************* and Nolefam either already understand that Fed is GOAT without taking away anything from their respective ATG or they will debate it until their last breath, your silly twitter account won't convince anyone.

Federer has always been the GOAT but Nadal is the 2nd greatest ever and that's how it is likely to stay.
But just like it happened to Steffi Graf or Pete Sampras, someone will come along and pass Federer's total slams. But Nadal's 10 RG (and possibly even more) is something that will never be broken and really stands out. Sometimes history unfolds in an unpredictable way. Sampras saw most of his records fall because they were not as spectacular and special as La Decima. Only time will tell. Maybe Federer's 18 or 19 slams will be broken soon enough, but people will forever try to equal Nadal's 10 or 11 titles at a slam.

Then even if Federer wins the next 10 Wimbledons, his resume would still be too clay weak to be considered a GOAT candidate. :rolleyes:
I see you didn't address the WTF issue…what excuse do you have for Rafa this time?

Oh and even though Fed just has one RG title his resume is obviously far more diverse than One Trick Pony Nadal.

They are both all time greats with Fed being clearly ahead at the moment in the metrics that matter most (slams, #1, success on all surfaces). But this debate won't be settled until they are both retired, if ever.

We ll decide when Fed, Nadal and Djokovic are retired. Until then, nothing has been finalised

I already said that WTF has nothing to do with the slams. If you bring WTF then let's also talk about Olympics, Masters 1000, Davis Cup, etc.

Roger's 1 RG title is the weakest link in both of their careers when it comes to slams cause he didn't even beat Nadal to do it (and never did in 5 tries), while Nadal's 1 AO he beat Federer in the final. Nadal beat the best for his 1 AO, Federer did not for his 1 RG.

Stop disrespecting Nadal just to make Federer look good cause that's the only reason why I even bother to criticize Federer.

So why is nearly every Nadal fan I encounter constanly drilling about the H2H? Federer fans only diminish Nadal in response to this.

The best at AO is not Federer.

Nice try.

Oh, and you criticize Federer, because you are on the wrong side of History.

At the time he was. Federer with 5 AO and 5 USO is the hardcourt GOAT, followed closely by Djokovic. Nadal beat Federer and Djokovic in the finals of his 3 hardcourt slam titles.

No one needs to disrespect Nadal to make Fed look good…he looks good already being the GOAT.

Hahahaha.

"At the time he was."

The desperation.

And that is right, he beat anyone for his titles just three times, which means that he wasn't good enough in ALL his other tries.

This is undoubtedly a crap thread.
But you are certainly one to talk since you are doing your best to provoke fanbases here since you joined, along with the new chap who created that other thread, hopefully deleted by now.

We seem to have had a plethora of new joinees in the last month or so, who are creating provocative or silly threads with a frenzy, and going around poasting like they've been here for years.

It's only a matter of time these earlier banned poasters will be banned again.
