Djokovic is still the biggest threat to Nadal at RG (?)

Fed won Madrid, but I still think that only Novak can seriously threat Nadal at French Open.

Yeah....after much thinking I think that conclusion makes sense.

I agree that Djokovic has a great chance at the French.

Actually James Blake is the overwhelming favorite given his recent play. He's a fucking clay legend!

Re: Djokovic is still the biggest threat to Nadal at RG

Novak's fitness is the main problem for him right now.

Another thing that bothers me is that even if he can run out of gas, one thing he can always do is play aggressive to shorten the rallies yet he doesn't do that most of the time against Nadal. I swear whenever he does that he always wins the set decisively (6-2 or 6-3).

He needs to stand exactly on the baseline, hold his ground and go for his shots without hesitating.

Re: Djokovic is still the biggest threat to Nadal at RG

Nole lost in 3, Fed easily won in 2. Nole may be biggest threat to push Nadal to 5, but Federer is the one who has the best chance to beat him.

Without a doubt. Anyone saying anything else are outright lies.

Re: Djokovic is still the biggest threat to Nadal at RG

Garson, how about watching the final and watching Federer pound Rafa on clay in his home crowd. In straight sets too. Nole is 0/9 on clay vs. Rafa, Federer is much better and can win convincingly.
