Madrid most interesting clay event thus far?

I must say of all the clay court tournaments im looking forward the most to MAdrid. Not only is it a new ATP event but there is many other things that could make this potentially very interesting. The conditions will be different cos of the altitude, giving some of the attacking players a chance. Nadal does not sound happy and i think he isnt doing his chances any favors by his discontent. Is the number 1 pressure finally getting to him? Is he starting to finally doubt himself after al this domination on clay? Will Verdasco beat him or will Djokovic take him finally? He doesnt seem focused thats for sure. On the other side Fed is already relishing the conditions and salavating at the prospect of a place in the final. Are we finally gonna have our Fed/Murray clay court matchup? I cant wait to find out.

Nadal wins easily. The only question is, who will he beat in the final.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: Madrid most interesting clay event thus far?

Any clay event that has Nadal in it, is only interesting to Nadal fans, so they can see him smash the field playing at half pace.

Or for others to see who is playing for 2nd place.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nadal dominates. Then complains again about Madrid before Roland Garros.

Yes, but not because Rafa is 'losiing his mojo'.

Re: Madrid most interesting clay event thus far?

nadal should retire if he fails at roland garros, im being serious here. if he cannot win at his peak, when there is a big difference over him and the 2nd best clay player and had a good clay streak this year, if he cannot win the big one, i think he should just quit because he might have already peaked. i dont care if he loses 6-0 6-0 in the 1st match he plays at madrid as long as he wins the french.

This event is terrible because it's mixed, women's tennis is abysmal.

Of course, he might be just beaten by invisible man on this surface - Novak. If he is to beat an invisible opponent, then he is the true GOAT.
