2010, no HC titles for Rafa?

Could 2010 be the first year without a HC title for Rafa since 2004?

Re: 2010, no HC titles for Rafa?

Nadal has not beat a top 8 player on hard since March 09

The notion that you need to be a decent hard-courter to be #1 is complete BS, though he has been lucky in a few events

Who cares, we'll always have Paris & London.

Re: 2010, no HC titles for Rafa?

It's obvious Nadal won't win another HC title this year. The real question is how many years can he go skipping half the year and waiting for the clay season to get back his confidence? I think this is the last year, he's not getting any younger and with the return of Del Po and Berdych/Soda/Nalby he won't win all the clay masters and be low on confidence for the FO.

Rafa is playing a dangerous game every year, it will cost him soon.

I believe this is called hyperbole.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Rafa will never be low on confidence at any clay tournament

He's had the consistency this year, he just hasn't been able to beat the big guys

Oh no, number 1 lost to number 4. Why has he not hung his racket up yet?

Even in 2009 when he was "injured" he made the semis of the USO. Nadal has always been defined by consistently mediocre (compared to the other top players) HC results, unless he wins he gains no confidence from a tournament despite what he says.

Re: 2010, no HC titles for Rafa?

And what do you know.. Cue the haters threads/posts after Rafa loses a match. I'm shocked I tell ya, SHOCKED! MTF is such a sad place thriving on a player losing. Oh well, can't expect anything else from clowns like you.

I still think Rafa has the chance to reach far in both Cincy and USO if he just can improve his serve.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

They let him play tennis once after they saw his "consistency is everything" advertisement.

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Re: 2010, no HC titles for Rafa?

nadal used to trash nole, muzza and even roger on hardcourts, so making such treads is not a smart idea.
for god sake, he was smiling when muzza had MP. he didn´t care for toronto IMO, he is trying to make his peak at US open

No titles at all for Murray, and only one for Federer and Djokovic. Where are their threads?

14.

Just for posterity, he wasn't smiling, he was complaining about the linesperson not making the call fast enough and sarcastically smiling at the situation, even though he had basically lost and was just lashing out.
