Hamburg 2008: Rafa adds a new Masters title to his clay collection :worship:

Well since Rafa has bombed out of Rome already and Linda must be itching to create another tournament thread, I need to step in and take the initiative. (Clearly the same person creating threads for 3 consecutive tournaments would not be a good thing; look at Rafito trying to play 3 in a row .)

Anyway, I hope Rafa gets a good rest to heal his feet and comes back in Hamburg to claim the clay title that's missing from his collection


As for the MIT competition, I'm curious to see your predictions now .

Re: Hamburg 2008: time to win a different trophy, no? :drool:

I have a bad feeling for Hamburg,i hate this tournament,the clay looks so dull ..erk...but i'll go for a W ( a bit of optimism after the sad events)*trying to keep my head above water*

-4 RG, what else?-A WIMBLEDON

Definitely a win for Nadal. So put me down for a W in MIT.
After a weeks rest, he should be in fine form to take Hamburg ... Regardless of the draw. And if RF reaches Roma's final he will experience how difficult is to reach 2 finals in a row on clay.

Re: Hamburg 2008: time to win a different trophy, no? :drool:

there's nothing to learn except that he played too much and then was injured which is normal.He'll have some rest and come back,i go for the win every time Rafa's playing on clay if don't mind if i'm wrong at MIT but i know he is able to win every tournament on clay even Hamburg,so yes i go for the WIN even if it sounds retarded!

You're right, he shouldn't have played Barcelona

But I agree Rafito will bounce back and win Hamburg

Win.

For me this isn't that bad a result today. I would prefer him to win Hamburg than to win Rome again. I figured if he won mc, barca, rome, then he would definitely withdraw from hamburg.

So all in all, if he wins hamburg, not too big a deal, really.

He proves every year that he isn't really cautious about his planning,this year is no exception but this year there is no time between tournaments...that's the only difference.
He'll have more motivation in Hamburg,especially since it's the last tournament before RG.Dunno if he'll win but one thing is sure..he can do it!

Let's keep fingers crossed,there's no remedy but rest.What he described at the press conference just reminds me of that awful injury he had 2 years ago
