Re: Madrid Masters - WWW?

Nadal seems to be improving every year, and I think the last couple of years he's had an earlier exit at at least one clay lead-up. He should probably win this one but it won't surprise me if he doesn't.

Imagine how much worse for you it will be in the next 3-4 years as Rafa wins almost everything, usually beating Andy along the way?

Re: Madrid Masters - WWW?

The altitude in Madrid could make things a little bit different, could it not?

I remember Sam Querrey taking a set from Nadal....

Maybe Djokovicwill have his greatest shot against Nadal in Nadals own homeground, or is this wishful thinking from me?

A final between Djokovic and Federer would be nice.

Re: Madrid Masters - WWW?

I think altitude will be compensated with home support and the slower clay.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Madrid Masters - WWW?

I'll go with Nadal to win Madrid, and the sun to rise in the East. Although I'm not 100% sure about one of these two things, I have been reassured that the sun will probably keep rising in the near future.

He won't be winning a lot on hard, but on clay I admit, he's unbeatable ATM
