And let's see what happens
Rafa is number 1 or 2 continuously for almost 4.5 years. What will the so called future-bright players like Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro do when they become 1 or 2? Will they stay at that point long enough like Rafa? I think Rafa haters understand his worth for tennis at that time. Rafa proved himself and booked his place in tennis history. 6 GS championships in 8 finals in 3 different surfaces. What will Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro do? Here are the stats for them:
Djokovic: 1 GS championship in 2 finals in 1 surface
Murray: 0 GS championship in 2 finals in 1 surface
Del Potro:1 GS championship in 1 final in 1 surface
They haven't proved themselves yet. I hope Rafa would play with all of them in RG 2010!
