Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

If he wins RG, and this is 90% sure, he'll have 710 in the ATP Race.
Federer 500 and Nole 611.

I think Rafa will have a good HC north american 2008 season and will be the new no.1

He fully deserves it, and, if he'll win RG again, I'm sure Roger would agree.

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

It would be nice but I doubt that. According to his form in past 2-3 years, his form starting to drops down in middsummer.

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

We are talking about the race here.

Ranking is what matters.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

Sorry, don't see it happening as much as I would love for it to happen. Rafa has faded quite a bit after Wimbledon the past two years, and I did not see much this year during the hard court season to think he will do excellent at USO or get big titles on hard like he did in 2005. I think Nole and Feds are very, very strong on hard and I can't see either of them fading during the summer/fall hard court swing.

And that goes for race and ranking.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

He always has such advantage after RG.

Then, after Wimbledon he simply disappears.

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

Same shit every year: he rocks he clay season and everyone forgets it's hardly mid-season.

Truth is Novak and Federer are superior to him on surfaces other than clay, and I give Novak the best chance to come out on top when the season ends.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

both Federer and Fakervic have a better chance than Nadal.

Re: Rafa - no.1 at the end of 2008

He'll have a tough enough job defending his Wimbledon points (or in case of the Race, keeping track with Fed and Nole on grass).
