This strategy is smoke and mirrors. You're not going to be able to run around for forehands and charge the net all night against Nadal.

That's dissappointing.

Down 4-5 and Rafa had chances to break at 3-3 and 4-4...

Nadal pushed him off the court in the tie-breaker. Doesn't look good for Fed. Bedtime for me.

Roger can't battle Rafa on those long baseline rallies.. Rafa got the first 7-6

Whoever wins this match will ultimately be considered the GOAT.

18-13 or 17-14... and we know Nadal is going to win more, Fed very unlikely.

This is a huge match for Fed's legacy. His only chance to stay GOAT.

Federer just needs to go pure "Edberg" to beat Rafa. Serve and volley on pretty much every point. His "beautiful" game does not work vs Rafa.

Nadal just too much. GOAT.

Rafa up 2 sets to 0. Not sure how this guy can't be called the GOAT.

Yea, had this problem discussing with Fed Fans all the time.

No matter what happens, they insist on Roger being the GOAT.

Basically based on aesthetical performance...

Soon to be 17-14 with much time for Rafa to surpass him.

In 2010 I predicted Rafa to win a unheard total of 20 Grand Slams...

French up next, you can book that one already. CLAY ULTRA GOAT.

Nahh thats over. 2012 was pure timing.

Andy one tournament away from his breakout GS.

Djokovich had a subpar GS considering his level.

And well Rafa was injured&gone in the 2nd round.
