Other picks Nadal to win the AO

Can't believe so many people seem to be forgetting about Rafa: never count him out of a hard court slam I say

Re: Other picks Nadal to win the AO

tennizen hails Other's wisdom in making this pick . Other is wiser than Wilander, Cash and Borg put together.

Re: Other picks Nadal to win the AO

I say never count him out too but to put it simply Rafa is just not that dominant on hard courts, especially over the likes of Fed, Djoker and Murray. Heck he hasn't even reached a HC final, and only reached the semis last year where in 2007 he had a 4th round loss at USO. I can see why he is not the favourite and hasn't been mentioned by many. If it was Roland Garros you would be crazy not to predict him to win. (Hence, why I have been called crazy.)

Others might not agree with me but I agree with other. Unless of course this is other's attempt to troll and piss off all the others.

Re: Other picks Nadal to win the AO

I pick Nadull to make the 2nd round.

A very tricky prediction.

Re: Other picks Nadal to win the AO

the thing is, Rafa is a very strong player but HC is not his strongest surface and there are a lot of others that can beat him on it, unlike clay where only God (or JesusFed in full mode ) can DREAM of beating him

I wouldn't count him out like: OMG he's gonna lose in the first round, but I don't think he'll reach the final if muzza keeps playing like he's been doing lately

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
