Nadal is only 2 matches away from becoming the greatest player of all time

It's not only about being the youngest player in history to win a
Career Grand Slam, it's not only about defeating Federer yet in
another GS final, it's not only about winning 9 GS at barely 24, it's
not only about the possibility of winning 11 GS before he turns 25.
It's about proving that there's never been a player in history to win
as much in as many different surfaces as Nadal.

Nadal only needs to win 1 US open to prove that he is the best in
history (the same way that Federer has been called the GOAT after
winning only one RG) and this must be it. Glory is knocking on Nadal's
door. I hope Uncle Tony makes sure Nadal hears and understands the
knock.

Interesting premise. Good luck with it.

Okay, he wins the Open and scrapes past half way to Fed's total. Explain the
above to us again?

Easy. Federer is 6 six years older than Nadal and he hasn't won as
much as Nadal at his old age. Nadal has won more master series, Gold
medals, Davis Cups and still has 6 year in front of him (an entire
tennis career) to keep on winning. If Nadal wins the US Open he'll
have nothing left to win iin tennis at 24 to prove he is the best
player in history.

You don't even need to compare their careers to see that Nadal is a
better player than Federer. Just check their head to head ecord and
there's no better indicator of who is the best player in history.

All this sounds fantastic but I give only a very small chance for
Nadal to win this or any other USO - sorry

I think Brad Gilbert said that he's top 4 all time right now and that
if he beats Fed on Sunday he would shoot him all the way up to #1 all
time.

JMac and PMac didn't comment on that statement. They just made their
usuall hmmm, aha kind of noises.

It's always amusing when a troll tries to force his natterings into
the form of a logical argument.

You are forgetting that he's already past his best and unlikely to be
winning
majors even at 27 except perhaps FO.

Not that his career hasn't been impressive.  But wait until it's over
before making
any extreme pronouncements.

I am puzzled. When Nadal was at his very best? 2008-2009? 2008 Spring-
Summer? 2010 Spring-Summer? Midsummer 2008? Spring 2010? During two
minutes somewhere in Beijing 2008? During a couple of milliseconds at
some tuneup in 2005?

For Fed is easy he has always been at his peak, right?

Yeah, how about no. No amount of gushing over different surfaces would
overcome having 3 other guys in the Open Era winning more slams than
he has.

And Chang >>>> Nadal because Becker won FO at 17?

It's called "having a crush on Rafael Nadal and then having a few
too many drinks".
