@lilscot Roger is somewhat classy, with a touch of snark.  Fed has nothing to prove, he is a great champion.  I wish he would age gracefully.

@LouisAyala Almost as classy as how she behaved during that period when she was homewreckin' the Norman family.

@LordOfTheTennisDance Keep peeing on Rafa's 9 French Opens.  It'll take a lot to fill all 9 cups.

@Nada believer As much as I would like to see Nadal win 20 Slams, I doubt he has many left.  I'd put the over/under @ 3 more.

@RichSimmons @tennisman Verdasco, Ferrer, Murray, Tsonga.  I'd pick these 4 every match played versus Federer @ the French.

Time for Roger to enter the 'Nuprin' stage of his career, where he 'makes a run' to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam and appears more often as a front-man for an analgesic than for his play on the circuit.  Will he be able to 'Nupe it" better than Connors?  Time will tell. . .

@Maribella Should we conclude then that the women are somehow discriminated against by not receiving extra tutorials designed to improve their visual-spatial awareness? 

It makes sense the men would challenge more often: the ball is moving faster.

It makes sense the men's challenges are more frequently correct in their challenges: men have better visual-spatial skills.

@Maribella Maribella is advancing her women's tennis agenda at the expense of a better sport, namely men's tennis.  When I want to watch the sport of tennis at its highest level, I watch the men.  The ball moves faster, the competitors move faster, the matches last longer.  When I want to watch scantily clad 'sporty' women, sometimes I watch women's tennis, sometimes I watch porn.

In any event, this thread is supposed to relate to the men's US Open tennis final.  Consistently, poster Mirabella uses these threads to advance her gender-based political agenda.

 @Tennis Guru 78 Fed homer, you realize what you are saying is that Fed played Rafa even (so far) on all non-clay surfaces.  On clay, Fed loses to Rafa consistently.  Yet somehow, you conclude Fed is the GOAT.

 Federer is now a has-been that still plays consistently at a very high level.

The crowd will support him more (and he'll get more centre court matches) when his rank falls below #20 in the world, and the story can be spun like Connors (1 last run at the US Open).

Roger continues to deserve his #3 world rank, but the gap to #1 and #2 is growing. . .

Anyone who can beat Djokovic and Nadal in the semi-final and final well deserves the title.

I dont expect anyone to do it this year.

 @JB TexasEx  @Hellbent  @JB Bullshit TCU and West Virginny are upgrades 'on the field'.  What is TCU's all-time record versus A&M?

What conference was TCU in where they recently compiled a winning record?  1 stop below CUSA?  Big lEast - yup, that's a powerhouse conference.

 

Think about it.  Why would any team join the B-WTF?  Are they Desparadoes?

 @JohnVol 2007, five years ago was the last time your school did feck-all in football.  Didn't even win your conference, but feel free to ejaculate on the nearest trophy for most improved retard.

I believe A&M won its conference more recently than your team won the SEC.

But please, remind me of 1997.  Peyton Manning to Peerless Price, FTW!

@Backhand Winner@RafaelSuyat Fed is only the GOAT based on Grand Slams in the Open Era, which started in 1972. Before 1972, there was another set of annual tourneys where the best played. If those are counted as equivalent to slams, Fed would be #3 in titles behind Emerson and Laver.

@Mrlauris1982@skmind "If" is a word connoting a hypothetical scenario, which automatically gets disqualified for consideration in a GOAT conversation. Career statistics matter. Borg played at the pro level for >10 years. This is ample time in which to say his win percentage counts as the best during the Open era. The fact that it is better than Federer's career win percentage suggests that on this metric, Borg had a better career than Fed.

@skmind "In this era" are words that are automatic disqualifiers for GOAT contention. To say Fed had the most dominant 4 years in the Open era (post 1968) would be accurate. GOAT he is not. Nadal is a better player.

@RafaelSuyat Your argument might be valid if the Open era existed pre-1968. If you include Pro Slam Tounaments (1958-1967) in the same category as Grand Slams from the Open Era, Federer is #3 in titles behind Laver and Rosewall.

Your argument fails to pass the sore eye test. 18-9. Rafa is a better player than Fed H2H.

@Stefano But Borg left the game with the highest career win %. Federer will not match this, yet another reason he cannot be considered the GOAT.

2 years, 6 months ago on TENNIS.com - News Headlines - Federer: Record vs Nadal not important

@skmind Nadal has been better than Federer for at least the last 3 years. H2H does matter, and Federer is not the GOAT. Fed's case is limited to most Grand Slams (he'd be #3 behind Rosewall and Emerson if you counted pre-1972 tourneys) and the best GS hard court win % record. Nadal and Borg have better career win percentages, Fed is #16 on the all-time single title list, Connors has a better single season Grand Slam record (100%), Sampras has a better win % record on grass. Sampras and Nadal are 1 and 2 on GS Final win %, ahead of Fed. Fed is among the greats, but not the best ever, and not even the best of his era. Perhaps he was the most dominant ever for a 3-year period. . .

Rafa's injuries could in part be psychological projection associated with his struggle to play and win at tennis' highest level. From the outside, it can appear to be whining and gamemanship. I dont think Rafa is deliverately trying to screw with his opponent's heads. I think he's creating psychological relief points for pre-match pressures and expectations. This may not be the optimal coping strategy, but he sure has been effective in his career.
