Round 1
Published:
Thank you for accepting my challenge, Alanwang123.
Now, this is my argument:

Rafael Nadal is definitely better than Roger Federer. 
1. Nadal is younger and can move faster than Federer.
2. Nadal is better trained than Federer and has a better coach, in my opinion.
3. Nadal has a better serve than Federer and can ace him.
4. Nadal is better at directing the ball than Federer.
Conclusion: Nadal can beat Federer with these advantages, provided he does not have any injuries, making him a better tennis player.

Hello, Joshua_Stebold. Now, what you've said is quite true. Nadal does have some advantages. However, the main reason Nadal is losing current matches is because he get's injured way too easily. Federer has less chance in injury, making it easier to beat Nadal.

Over to you :)
Round 2
Published:
I am fully aware of what you just mentioned. However, we are debating which tennis player has better skill. That is definitely Nadal.

Ooh. Nadal being better than Federer is a tough case to make. Props to pro for trying this. Sad to see the opponent forfeited.

I am not voting on this debate. This is a joke and the more I try to explain my vote on this the more I am confused about what the hell is going on in this debate.

#3
Criterion Pro Tie Con Points
Better arguments 3 points
Better sources 2 points
Better spelling and grammar 1 point
Better conduct 1 point
Reason:
Pro provided four reasons why Nadal is better (youth, superior serve, training & ball direction), Con conceded all of these points "Now, what you've said is quite true." but argued that because Federer gets injured less often, he is better. Pro rebutted this by pointing out that this debate is about who has superior skill and is therefore better, and not about who would win in a match. No further arguments followed so Pro's arguments stand unrefuted/conceded while Con's was rebutted. Arguments to Pro
Con ff'd 2/3 rounds, therefore conduct to Pro as well.
No S&G issues.
No relevant sources.
