What did Nadal mean when he said to Roger.....

"You gonna get the record for sure" in the post match presentation?

Nadal will probably win the FO and Wimbledon and has a good shot at the US open. If not him, there are a couple of other guys who could take slams. So why is Roger going to equal Pete's record "for sure" ?

If I didn't know better I'd say either Rafa is doubting his abilities to win all four or there is some secret arrangement

I know Rafa felt bad and everything but this seemed a bit of weird thing to say.

Thoughts?

Rafa was trying to be polite... this thread is ludicrous.

He is still the favorite in any slam final where he doesn't play Nadal, and I don't think Nadal is getting to every slam final from between now and Fed's retirement so it makes sense.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

It's not like he was just trying to make Roger feel better.....

It didn't mean anything. Rafa's just stating facts as he sees them.

I signed up to this forum to a see a picture a few weeks ago if you must know

I don't see anything wrong in starting a thread about this because imo what Nadal said was a bit weird even if i was to make Fed feel better. Sometimes I think Rafa is too nice.

I think Roger will prob get to the finals of Wimbledon relatively easily but if Rafa is on the other side of the net, he's in deep trouble!

oh yeah he never won FO

to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Because he only needs to win the USO and the next Australian (if not Wimbledon) and by this time next year the record might be in the bag.

At the moment, I wouldn't be so sure. Nadal and Federer are beatable in other tournaments, but at Grand Slams they're not really being challenged.

Djokovic and Murray are the main challengers, but only on good days and even then if they can keep their cool. Murray has yet to win a GS and I don't know if Djokovic can mentally handle being public enemy number one.

Re: What did Nadal mean when he said to Roger.....

Pretty ridiculous thing. He's just being polite like Uncle Toni wants him to be but, being a killer jock he is going to make it his mission to make sure that he single-handedly prevents Roger from winning 1 more slam.
