2008 Nadal's Worst Season Yet??

I'm thinking he wins 2-3 titles this year...MAX.

His form at the AO so far has been questionable and if it continues it may affect his claycourt season as well.

Re: 2008 Nadal's Worst Season Yet??

Evidently I'm watching a different tournament, since his form has been pretty good albeit against fairly weak opposition thus far, he's made a final of an event before getting here and backed up his QF appearance of last year with a good chance to go deeper.

How you base that this might be a poor year for him on THAT is what I'd like to know.

Re: 2008 Nadal's Worst Season Yet??

I really don´t see what suggests he´s out of form. The Chennai final was not about his form or abilities, the guy was a wreck after his semifinal match. Since then he´s been consistent and playing pretty well, IMO. If he stays injury-free, I can´t see why this season would be a bad one for him.

wow its only weeks into the long season and you are already calling it. You must be able to see into the future... say when will Rafa retire, get married and have kids?

Re: 2008 Nadal's Worst Season Yet??

Lack of competition and not amazing form or not, it seems absurd to suggest that it would be anyone's worst season immediately in the midst of their BEST start to it.

Totally agree. He only made it to the Final in Chennai, whereas he made it all the way to the Semis last season. And he's only made it to the QFs in Melbourne. Pretty pathetic.

If this is any indication of how his season is going to go, he should just schedule a press conference and announce his retirement now.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

*sigh*
And I suppose Wimbledon 2007 was Rafa's worst grass court tournament ever, considering he almost lost twice in the early rounds and was mere games away from the title there.

Right?

I think it might be a bit too early to tell.

Idiot, Nadal can clinch the no.1 spot this week, remember Federer got the spot right after he won the AO and hasn't given it away
