Do you think Nadal can have another good year?

Nadal obviously had an awesome year in 2008, almost as good as Roger had for 4 years but we have just gotten used to it. What kind of year do you think Rafa will have in 09? Its hard to see him having another 08, even though he's only (22?). He will always be competitive at the French but do you think he will win another Wimby or another slam?

I think he could win this time again both the French and Wimby, he has to improve on hard courts, he's definetely in the top 5 on hards.

He'll be working at a fruit stall at the end of the year.

I hope he doesnt win wimby, i mean Fed will be really hungry to regain his title. If he doesnt seriously consider coming to the net more against Nadull im gona be really pissed.

No way he will improve 2008. Even if you don't consider Olympic Gold very important, won't happen.

I consider a good year winning more the one slam. Im interested to see if he can improve on the hard court slams.

Maybe he will just decide he really would just like to get married and settle down in Manicor and play soccer with his friends and fish. He's not after any record breaking like Federer, and now that he's had the Perfect Year, playing tennis won't be as much fun. And I think he realizes that winning at AO is a very long shot.
