Re: Nadal will Fall
Nadal is not more fragile or injure-prone than the rest. We just pay more attention to him. Murray had wrist problems and has had a horrible run, Djokovic his allergic problems and a horrible past year too, Federer says himself he has back trouble and is nearly 30, Denko and Delpo out for months for injury, Tsonga injured half his career... and this guy is able to play more matches than anyone else this year, winning all the latest important tournaments, and he is suposed to be ready for retirement?
And about retiring from hardcourt, and not winning the USO ever, keep wishing :P One month rest after Wimby is enough, then maybe tanking/skipping Cinci. He will eventually win one of the next 3-4 USO. What he should really skip is all the stupid sanghai/beijing stuff.
Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open
, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series
, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)
The inhabitants of the Balearic Islands are said to have been the inventors of slings, and to have managed them with surprising dexterity, owing to the manner of bringing up their children. The children were not allowed to have their food by their mothers till they had first struck it with their sling.

Nadal: the last Balearic Slinger, the ultimate product of natural selection. Feel the weight of the centuries in the Topspin from Hell!
