An opportunist would be someone who gets lucky and wins just once
there. A fluke. Never to reach the final again and who won because he avoided the best player on grass.
IF Nadal were to lose in the QF of RG in 2013(to a ballbasher) but then won RG in 2014(avoiding Djokovic and ballbashers), would he be considered an opportunist? Of course not. You don't fluke a slam 7 or 8 times.
