Re: Will Federer Ever Get the #1 Ranking Back?
Back in 2009 I said no, and I was wrong, but this time his game is too shaky, to be honest. Also Nadal has already 7.000 points that he doesn't need to defend for almost 11 months, he would need to win absolutely everything to surpass him. So almost no chance until next summer, when he's almost 30. Looking bad.
Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open
, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series
, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)
The inhabitants of the Balearic Islands are said to have been the inventors of slings, and to have managed them with surprising dexterity, owing to the manner of bringing up their children. The children were not allowed to have their food by their mothers till they had first struck it with their sling.

Nadal: the last Balearic Slinger, the ultimate product of natural selection. Feel the weight of the centuries in the Topspin from Hell!
