it's finally happened:

rafa's finally reached the quarters at the uso without dropping a set.. here's hoping his 'straight-set streak' continues..

question now is.. could rafa make the final without dropping a set?

incidentally, even the greatest hard-court player of his generation and perhaps of all time, roger himself, has never made the finals at the uso without dropping a set..

this would truly be quite a feat if rafa manages to pull it off this week..

of course, roger could also pull it off this week for he also hasn't dropped a set so far..

vamos!

He could win this without dropping a set. Verdaswarriorco will be too tired to wina set. His victory was the epic win over Ferrer. Youhzny and wawrinka are hopeless against Nadal.

Re: it's finally happened:

Amazing!!!!

Anyone know how many sets Federer has dropped so far? Probably 6 or 7 I would guess.

EDIT: Holy Shit, he hasn't dropped a set either. Somebody should start a thread.

Why would you say Youzhny is hopeless against Nadal? Of their 4 previous hard court matches together, Youzhny won 3 ('08 Chennai, '07 Dubai, '06 US Open). Two of those wins for Youzhny were straight sets, and the US Open win was in 4 sets. Seems like Youzhny has a pretty good chance vs. Nadal on this surface.

i agree that rafa has to win it.. no dount about that.. however, making the finals without dropping a set on his worst surface and at his worst slam venue would be quite a feat for rafa in my humble opinion, especially when even roger's never managed to pull that off at the uso.. and of course winning it all without dropping a set would be one heck of a giant cherry on top of rafa's career slam sundae..

Re: it's finally happened:

I agree, Rafa has played amazingly well here in USO. Still, the title is not a done deal yet. Most people here seem to forget that he has to play three more matches first. And a win over Djokovic/Federer/Soderling is not easy.
