How far is wining a GS on hard court for Nadal

IS he getting closer to the trophy of AO or USO, since he got to SF for the first time

, or,

much further away due to the crumble he got this time?

I support
N. Djokovic A. Murray R. Federer

He is neither closer nor further away. If Rafa encounters a hard-hitter who is playing really well, he WILL lose on hardcourts. It has always been that way, it will always be that way. Nothing has changed. He might play a tad better on hards then he did 2 or 3 years ago, but I still don't think it'll ever be enough.

Re: How far is wining a GS on hard court for Nadal

I like Nadal but the answer to this question is clear.

He had one of the easiest draws in GS history on his was to the semi finals. He did not meet a player in the top 20,yet still couldnt reach the final.

He certainly isn't getting any closer put it that way.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Double Grand slam champion. Olympic Gold Medalist. Holder of 9 Masters 1000 events # legend

Depends on the ATP, next time they might arrange 6 clowns to face him before the final, so his fans can keep believing he's improving...

What do you call Safin?
But in truth, Nadal isn't cut out for hardcourts, but has gotten more aggressive, and I like the way his serve is looking.

How the hell are you supposed to tell some guy "this is how it always will be", how the hell would you know, I think he can make some alterations, he is only 21.

Replace the bolded with "than".

Safin? Safin has never reached form he has since 2005, put Safin of 2005 or prior on a court with Nadal, in Montreal, night match, Nadal would get absolutely hammered.

People cannot take his injuries into consideration, never fails to amuse me. Do you think he would have gone from number 3 in the world dropping as low as 106 (or whatever it was) if he never got injured?

It's a good thing you are such a grammar expert. Thanks for correcting me.

next time you might want to try writing a sentence that makes sense.

It's usually seven best of five set matches in a row as far as I know
