Re: French Open 2014

By the same logic how many French's does Fed have? One all due to Soderling and Rafa being injured? So he's not very good on clay, he can't be GOAT.

and Fed got a career slam at age of 28, Rafa got a career slam at age of 24 and that too he beat Fed at Wimbledon, not some freak. Rafa also has a Gold Olympic Medal, hell even Murray has one, Fed only got a Silver that too coz they played on grass in 2012 London.

The most important Davis Cup .. Fed : SF (2003, 2014) .. Rafa: W (2004, 2008, 2009, 2011) .. 5 times Rafa made his country proud leading from the front.. Once in Olympics and 4 times in Davis Cup

It took Federer 3 years to reach French finals in 2006 after winning wimbledon for 1st time in 2003, Rafa self admittedly not very good on grass but made it the very next year in 2006 after winning his first French in 2005. Rafa's not only the best on clay, he's improved and won 2 Wimbledons and 2 US Opens, almost 2 Australians.. what has Fed got to show on clay?

quite frankly Rafa has owned Fed.. 23 to 10 losing streak is not the mark of a GOAT If you beat the champion again and again, make him cry and bugger spoilt Rafa's victory, then you are the new champion.

They have played 33 times, most recently in the 2014 Australian Open Semi-finals, and Nadal leads their nine-year-old rivalry 23–10
