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?

He wasn't talking about this year necessarily. Also, did you notice how he said "you are ONE of the best players in the history of the game." He always used to declare that Federer was the best player of all-time bar none. Interesting how his view of Federer has changed.

It's called pity. Roger's out there crying and Nadal tried to console him with some false hope.

Rafa didn't want Roger to kill himself after beating him like that....all Roger has to look forward to are Grand Slams and fat Mirka flattening him every night. You'd be crying too.

he was standing between Rod Laver and Roger. He is polite.

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

I really hate the idea of somebody being expected to win anything.

weather it be: Murray @ the Australian, Nadal @ wimbledon or Roger equaling Pete....

apparently tennis liking people just cannot stop themselves from predicting that crap no matter how often proven wrong.
it makes people look really stupid & it is just a dumb thing to say.

It's a game anyone can win or lose on any given day.

He knows that he never won a slam without beating Fed along the way, so he doesn't want him to quit.

Seriously, he just wanted to reconsile the situation.
