‘Whose career Slam was greater’ arguments.
Posted by tennisplanet on October 3, 2010
-Nadal is the first one – in history – to get there so early. Can anyone break that record?
-Federer won the last leg after being on ‘suicide watch’ the entire freaking time. That’s performing under pressure.
-The two beat the following ranked players at the ‘last’ leg, quarters and beyond:
Nadal: Fernando (8), Youzhny (14), Djokovic (3) = Average 8.33.
Federer: Monfils (10), Delpo (5), Soderling (25) = Average 13.33.
-It took so many attempts to win the last leg:
-Nadal had to conquer three surfaces not known to be his favorite. Federer had just one.
-Federer’s win carries a near-unanimous stigma of Nadal’s absence further highlighted by Nadal’s complete rampage on clay this year. Nadal was an overwhelming favorite to win the title even if he had to face Federer by the time the semis rolled around. Some even consider Federer lucky to have lost to Djokovic in the semis to avoid lot of crap – H2H the least one of them.
You got more? No, you don’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!
