Very disappointed with Nadal

Nadal at clay is a completely different beast
And nadovic H2H at clay post 2011, being 9-7 is a bit misleading...
As 3 of djoker wins came into nadal's weakest years on tour (2015 MC, 2015 RG, 2016 ROM)..
Only MAD11, ROM11, MC13, ROM14 were achieved when both were prime...
Otherwise nadal pretty much thrashed nole on clay, especially at RG, even when he was half decent...
So technically its 9-4 nadal....
Good man! You are clearly one of the rare few who is a true fan of Bull, as you abide by the morally correct rule - if Bull isn't at his best, it doesn't count, but if the opponent isn't at his best, it does count. However, I must point out to you that it is technically 16-0 to Bull, not 9-4. You made the mistake of simply deducting the matches that Djokovic "won," rather than putting them in Bull's column as moral victories for Bull. And you also failed to notice that Madrid 2011, Rome 2011, Monte Carlo 2013, and Rome 2014 were all moral victories on Bull's part, too. Indeed, Bull now leads Djokovic by an impressive 54-0 in their moral head to head.

Right. He has known it all along, but because of his tremendous modesty and humility, he rarely lets it slip. However, it is fortunate that the large fanbase he has is not encumbered by the same moral attributes of modesty and humility, and so work tirelessly on his behalf to inform the rest of the world about his invincibility. The only question remaining is how we are to explain the very rare acknowledgements that the humble Bull makes as to his true status as unbeaten and unbeatable GOAT and GHOAT. They seem not in keeping with his overall insistence on keeping his head down and getting on with good works, while not letting his fame, fortune, and status inflate his ego. It must just be that it is incumbent on him never to tell an outright lie, so when pushed very hard, he must acknowledge that some of his seeming "defeats" were not really defeats.

I'm a federer fan... So you trolled yourself only
Nuff said xD.

Yeah, I agree. He played incredibly well and smart at Wimbledon, almost beat Novak, that's why I'm surprised he didn't at least try with the same approach this time. Anyway, I don't believe he would've won the match regardless, it's hard to hit through Novak on this type of court, it's much easier to do it on grass.
That is the game Rafa will play 99% of the times on a clay court at sea level. He will never be agressive exept on those occasions when couterattack is necessary.or sitters.
It is actually up to the oppont find a way to work his chances through the match, because that is what Nadal will do.
I was actually surprised with the nullity of Djoko's tactics. Só many times he could have simply and sweetly sliced a DTTL BH instead of all thore redicolous drop shots and other totally tacticaly wrong backhands. He wanted to do a drop shot on a heavely spinned ballon forehand from Rafa. Good luck in controling that bounce LOL.
