Saying Rafa is the best player this year is like saying that the night is dark because there is no sun in the sky.... didn't expect nothing better from Tim. No 1. ranking is becoming more and more ridiculous. Fed has Estoril and Halle alone, if I didn't know better, I'd say computer got broken...
Nadal will look to peak and save himself for USO... Still, if he gets a chance, he'll take what he can.
btw - welcome back CD.
thanks Vida. i am back to torment the Federereeeeeeesians who are in a constant state of mourning now anyway.
If Fed doesnt get this title in Toronto, it will be yet another pschological hit that he cant really afford to take.
as for the Clay Monster, like i said, the best strategy is to just take care of his health. he has a very busy year. the olympics will be taxing since its hard courts and he is playing both singles and doubles.
he also has 2 davis cup commitments. one of them is in september at home against the americans. lot of tennis to be played. its best to protect those knees.
