Perhaps it was Nalby's play that caused Nadal not to be in top form today?
Nadal was crap today. Nalby played well, but honestly it was not because of him that Nadal was such shit.
As for Fat Dave, I'm going to wait at least consecutive good tournaments before I even begin to make predictions about his return to the top. Every time I see him I wonder why he's not in the top 5 already, and then a few days later he shows me why. Until he proves me wrong, my skepticism about his desire and effort level remains. His talent has always been unquestioned.
