Why people said that Nadal will burnout in a few years?

I don't understand why a lot of people said that Nadal will be burnout in a few years (I'm talking here about not biased people). He hasn't been seriously injured since 2005, and right now he is playing without the protection for his knees, and winning without major complications, so no physical problems are bothering him.

Connors played a lot of tough matches in his career and had a very physical game too, he never gave up and fought every point, and won GS in his 30's and even reached SF of US Open at 39.
So why this burnout argument with Nadal?

Discuss.

You'll understand it in 2-3 years.

Because what you keep hearing over and over, tends to creep into your mind.
The media has been going on about it constantly for several years now.
They had to find something that would take him down, so they came up with the burnout argument.

Those people were also desperately off with their calculations.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: Why people said that Nadal will burnout in a few years?

It's because of the way he plays. I personally don't think he will burnout completely but he definately won't be as good as now. In 2/3 years he's going to drop from the top.

Re: Why people said that Nadal will burnout in a few years?

It's a well known fact that every year since 06' Nadal's career has been in dire jeopardy due to his playing style/non-existant injuries/coaching/ etc. You'll hear the same thing every single year, it's just expert MTF tennis analysts doing their thing.

All these one-sided, 2 set clay matches are gonna come back to haunt him........

it's all Uncle Toni's fault when he said that would retire at the end of last season

If it does not happen until the end of 2012, ask me again.

Re: Why people said that Nadal will burnout in a few years?

Djokovic, Murray and Federer are all going to retire younger than Nadal will. They are all very inferior physically. Nadal has tendinitis in his knees but Michael Jordan had knee tendinitis from age 28-40, and at age 40 he was the only player in the Washington Wizards to play all 82 games (and 37 minutes per game). Tendinitis doesn't send you into retirement, it just requires rest every now and then. Venus and Serena Williams know this, they've had wrist tendinitis all their careers, and they've wisely played light schedules. Whereas guys like Federer, Djokovic, Murray you can bet they'll retire from back and hip ailments, they've already had these complaints this year.

Nadal will not burn out in a few years.

He will just start losing very soon as soon as he loses his confidence and starts playing ala r1 uso 07 against that guy in the wimbledon film.

Re: Why people said that Nadal will burnout in a few years?

The main illusion of Nadal getting injured is created by the emotion of those who have run out of answers. People that now realise Nadal will sail past all before him in history are desperate and scared, so they turn to sweeping statements about Nadal retiring in 2 years (because thats how long it will take for him to pass Sampras' record). The cruel reality is Nadal is here to stay and play in his 30s.

That "confidence problem" is more of a Federer thing, its why he needs those flashy cardigans, because his confidence is dependent on his surroundings rather than it being inborn confidence. Nadal's confidence is inborn and irreversible.

My dearest double account: to surpass Pete's record Nadal needs 9 more GS. It's impossible to win 9 GS in 2 years

Re: Why people said that Nadal will burnout in a few years?

Yeah I know I was speaking in general terms (as to say the exact years and months is a bit silly) from the perspective of those who are saying Nadal will retire in 2 years, they are thinking about the Sampras record and thinking "how long shall I say he has left before retirement, ah 2 years so he can't get that Sampras record" or better yet they're probably thinking about the danger of him equaling Federer's 13 slams. Either way, 2 years seems to be the wheelchair estimate.
