Not sure.

That run is one of the best in history.. 3 GS, 6 MS shields.. So unless he has a consistency that we've seen from only Federer, I'd have to say no.

Re: Will 2008AO~2009Rome end up Nadal's best run in his career?

No. After the 2008 AO, he won Roland Garros, Wimbledon, and the 2009 Australian Open, as well as Monte Carlo, Hamburg, Canada, Indian Wells, Monte Carlo again, and Rome, not to mention the Olympics. That's 3 out of 4 slams as well as 6 out of 11 Masters Series titles and an Olympic Gold Medal.

No matter how good you are, you nee to also be a little lucky to dominate that much. I suspect Nadal will never manage to do QUITE that well again, but I suspect he will play as well as before. He just might not manage to be THAT dominant.

I think tennis won't ever be at that low again.

He is done dominating like he was last year.He will win 1 or 2 slam per year counting Roland Garros which he should win at least 3 times again.Dont think he will keep winning AO or win Us Open and Wimbledon I seriously can see Fed or Murray winning it until 2012.

By the way, just one little thing.

When you vote "yes", that means you think he WON'T be that dominant in a span again.(which means 2008AO~2009Rome end up Nadal's best run in his career)

When you vote "no", that means you think he CAN/MAY do that, or something like that again.

Sorry for my ambiguous Q&A.

Answering to the question:

Even so, I won't regret it if I were Rafa.
I'm sure there's more to come from Rafa.

He will almost certainly win many more titles, but over a longer period, not in such a dominant wedge.

I would take 2010 over 2008. 3 consecutive slams on 3 different surfaces is just too big.
