Obviously, you play a lot of mind games with yourself, but it is important to always believe that you can play your best, perform your best, and in the end, your convictions are stronger than your doubts.

I do think that Nadal has what it takes to be #1. And even though Roger has been playing badly, even on hardcourts , I still want to see how Nadal plays at Wimbledon. If he can get to the final and then actually win, I'll probably pass out. Nadal did say his ultimate goal is to win Wimbledon and I think he can do it. His chances are even better if somehow Roger gets beaten before the Wimbledon finals. hehe
Nadal has dethroned the King, Now the new King is Nadal
Thank God. Now players can focus on dethroning Nadal than focusing thier game on Federer. And Federer still has pressure, but I know for sure alot of people will be expecting less from him than Nadal, and thats a good thing from Federer's perspective.
Re: Nadal has dethroned the King, Now the new King is Nadal
yep the only positive...
now that he lost everything he can lose (wimbledon.. and #1 soon prob) then he can play like he had nothing to lose and improve... there will be motivation... a lot of it... i think this shock may be the only thing that can make him overcome the nadal in his head... to chase and not to be chasen.. a totally dif feeling
i would be fired up for revenge next year
