Strong words. Right now at least on clay he's probably right.

Re: "Nadal looks unbeatable' - McEnroe

Anyone watch the Rafa-Novak match? I loved the commentators making stabs at McEnroe.

That's a great line from Mac!

Re: "Nadal looks unbeatable' - McEnroe

"Someone will look at the result and think, '6-2 6-3, it wasn't much of a match', but the scary thing is that Djokovic played well."

My favorite quote. That pretty much summarizes Rafa's actual form. When you lose 6-2 and 6-3 and you have the feeling you played a good match, then you have in front of you some special player.

Para siempre Rafa

Of course he will. Probably not today though. Gonzo's looking pretty tough right now against Volandri, but probably not tomorrow either.

The funniest thing about it to me is that when he does, the people who hate him will be so much more excited about it than the people who love him will be disappointed.

Re: "Nadal looks unbeatable' - McEnroe

I don't think he is gonna be losing anytime this clay season. Maybe next year. He is too good right now. The real question is who will get atleast a set off him first

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')

Re: "Nadal looks unbeatable' - McEnroe

I felt the same way as McEnroe right after Novak match. He (Nole) did some great things, didn't make nearly as many errors as Fed did vs. Volandri - and still lost by a considerable margin. Didn't look as if he had any chance in hell to actually win a set, let alone a match. And Nole does seem to me as someone who matches well vs. Nadal, because of his strong BH, good nerves and a lot of patience in his high percentage play. So if Nole doesn't even come close, who can beat him? I can't think of a name, other than maybe Gonzo, if he's feeling like 110% fit and doesn't miss a single shot like he did vs. Haas in AO.

Re: "Nadal looks unbeatable' - McEnroe

Nadal is simply born for playing on clay.
he probably would prefer playing football on clay. just kidding.
