Tennis fans are incredibly fortunate right now. We are able to experience the best player to have ever played, Roger Federer, and the most interesting, dynamic and intense player (probably the second best player to have ever played), Rafael Nadal.
Nadel’s victory in Rome is his 16th Master’s win, which equals Agassi’s total. It is a superb record for any player at any age…but this has been accomplished during the peak time of the greatest player ever. And yes, Nadel is the best clay court player today by a mile, and may be the best ever. He is still young and relatively healthy and a fierce competitor. Therefore we can look forward to many more battles with Federer The Great on all surfaces.
This truly is the golden age of tennis.
