Has everyone noticed hw the joker hasn't won anything since he failed to take the no 2 in Hamburg - with Rafa dominating he's missed his chance big-time - karma for walking off in the Wimby semi last year and all the other times he chickened out when losing - he only made the finals here cos Rafa was wrecked and is clearly not the player he was losing to the player he used to destroy 6-0 6-1
That will be the last victory of Rafa for quite some time.. With his joke mentality and pathetic game, I hope the disgusting player loses every single match next season. He's disgraceful. He should just retire. He's a joke.
Has everyone noticed how he lost the first set 6-2 to Moya. The same player he use to beat 6-2 6-4 when he was only 19. He only beat Djokovic 7-6 7-6 after beating him 6-3 7-6 the previous week so this clearly shows he's getting worse week-by-week.
Depends what you consider a "decline". He's still having good results, but he isn't always playing to the top of his game. It's probably just that he has played so many matches this year, he's mentally fatigued. He'll have to toughen up to be like a Fed or Nadal, to be sure.
