What is Rafa gonna improve until AO 2011?

What will the guy improve, Well he says that you always can improve wich i think you always can. Nobody is perfect.
If I was him I would improve my serve.
He already has a great serve but he has to practice it more so that he can hit it whit more ease. The same whit his second serve.
He also can have a better return on the second serves, he missed allot (I mean more than usual) second serve returns against murray and Federer.
And that's it for him
He passes whit ease.
He has a great backhand.
The best forehand in the game
and great slices

9!!!!!!!

Rafael Nadal Perera, the best there was, there best there is and the best there will ever be
14 Grand Slams while he was plagued with injuries is remarkable and he isn't done just yet
Mad respect for the most beautiful player I've ever seen, Roger Federer
People talking about Nole winning 4 in a row and Rafa/Roger not being able to. Peak Nadal and Federer would have won multiple CYGS against this field

Re: What is Rafa gonna improve until AO 2011?

His slice is one of the most pathetic things on the tour.
His backhand and forehand are overrated.
His serve is also overrated.

Nadal is overrated.

He won't improve anything and he won't win a single hard court slam again.

LET'S GO!!

WORLD #1: 34 weeks and counting...

Re: What is Rafa gonna improve until AO 2011?

Here are some articels of Rafa talking about his AO chances
http://www.laht.com/article.asp?Arti...tegoryId=13002
http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...011-Nadal.aspx
http://blogs.bettor.com/World-No-1-N...TP-Tour-a48414

If you are too lazy to read here is a catch up on the articels

It hasn’t been done in 41 years, but Rafael Nadal has a chance to match Rod Laver’s feat of holding all four Grand Slam titles at one time when he goes for the Australian Open crown in January.

“It’s a little scary to think that if I win in Australia it would complete the circle of four consecutive Grand Slam (titles), although what’s scary is that I’ve already won three in a row,” the 24-year-old from the Balearic island of Mallorca told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

“Right now my sense is that I’m training and playing quite well, but until I get to Australia anything can happen. I’m not going to lie. For me it’s a big dream to get there and try to play well and compete to reach the final rounds (because) once you’re there anything can happen.”

“It’s true it’s an opportunity, maybe my only one, to win four in a row“

“I’m gonna try to repeat the same like last year, that I practised all well in December and I arrived to the beginning of the season with very high level, but without calm [since I didn’t] win in a long time,” said Nadal. “My opinion now, if I arrive with the same level like last year in the beginning of the season, the situation can change, because the calm [is] going to be there after this probably more emotional and good season of my career.”

But should Nadal come away from Melbourne with his 10th major title, there’s no doubt that the next question will be whether he can complete a calendar year Grand Slam.

Re: What is Rafa gonna improve until AO 2011?

The guy probably would have the GYGS had he not been injured in AO. he does not need to improve, just stay healthy.
