Just doing the math here, he's 30 right now with 16 slams. If he were to win 31 more slams consecutively, that would take almost 8 years!

Anyone think Rafa Nadal is going to play until he's 38? :D:p
*31. :)

If he played for another eight years... I think I'd have to reevaluate the nature of existence, itself. Some things are not meant to be. Then again, I thought he'd've been cooling out in Helsinki ages ago. So... ugh, please no. :)

I mean he is a freak of nature in a good way, but I can't see him playing to that age. I say 34 might be when he hangs it up, maybe 35.

Nadal fans have calculated that if Fed can win two slams at 36, then Nadal is still a spring chicken at 31 and has five more slam winning years to go. At barely 2 slams a year, he does ten more.
With courts sloane down further and tailor made draws, another ten years of two to three slams per year is quite conservative thinking, if you ask me.

10 years later, I can honestly say: Buddy, I took care of that.

I must admit that this unusual mix of paranoia and delusional slander is somewhat entertaining in this otherwise serious thread. Your cyber-forensic investigative skills seem on par with your reading comprehension ability and arithmetic. You are probably a busy guy who hasn’t had a chance to spend enough time on the forum to figure out the difference between “join date” and “ban date”. You seem like a man of great intelligence and knowledge, and I hope that you find the time in your busy schedule to get to know the forum better in the near future, and perhaps post a little bit more often than you have been in the past. For avoidance of doubt, I most surely remember having many productive and frank debates on professional tennis with nadalgirl26, god bless her kind heart, well into late 2006 and mid 2007.



I agree with you – this thread serves as the quintessential intragenerational learning resource of the forum.

Some things never change, here we are, 12 years later! Asking the same questions
12 years! Isn't that about the time the :p and :D Blancmange started hanging around here?

Coincidence? I think not!

EDIT: with the less colorful emojis subbed in, those two generic yellow buggers are supposed to be pink and green.

Sampras had great competition. Even though I am a big Nadal fan I admit he plays a bunch of losers like Federer, Hewitt, Roddick, Safin, Nalbandian, peopel that just suck. The up and comers like the two french players, Berdych, Ancic, all suck too. That is not his fault, he is awesome too, how awesome he is and the lossers he plays again equals up to alot of titles.

Sampras also was not nearly as good with his groundstrokes, movements, fitness, or return of serve as my Nadal. Samprwas was a great player but Nadal is better at all baseline shots and just more endurance and fit an athlete.
Well, she wasnt wrong about Berdych and I assume Simon and Gasquet?

Why is Soureshs posting as "nadalgirl26"?

:(
that was sobad not souresh.

souresh was busy creating 'federer should retire' threads. I bumped five of them together one day, each created in separate years. I think they got deleted or merged :(

I've seen several "Fed must retire!" threads over the years...and then he comes back to win another Wimbledon or another Slam... Would be hilarious if he won another Wimbledon.

Is there a particular reason why Federer got to play the unseeded Dimitrov in the quarters while Nadal has to contend with the dangerous seed Schwartzman?

Roberto Federroni prepared the draws so that the Swoosh Mafia could vulture another slem.

In which universe is 2019 Dimitrov a dangerous rival? He was ranked #47 or so at the US Open, while Shchwartman was ranked inside the top 20. If Dimitrov was ranked over 20 opositions behind Schwartzman is because he was in worse from. Schwwartman is also a much better returner than Dimitrov.

Dimitrov was in so poor form at the US Open that he lost in 3 sets to Medvedev.
