In a couple of months, Nadal will be a father! He will have one or maybe two. I just can't wait.

Tennis has Great Games & Great Personalities.

We also have Andy Murray.

You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.

Re: In a couple of days, Nadal will have the career slam!

I wouldn't count on it just yet. Like I've said, Federer is still the favorite, with Nadal being the underdog. Also, they both still have to get through their SF's first.

I'll congratulate Nadal if/when he gets his career slam. Not now though, it's way too early for that.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

Re: In a couple of days, Nadal will have the career slam!

The surprise for everyone is going to be that Nadal will probably play Djokovic in the final. While I hope and expect Nadal to win the USO, I am much more scared of Djokovic beating him than Federer. Djokovic is playing great and Federer has played no one of consequence yet. This being the case, everyone is overestimating Fed's current abilities. Nadal will play in the final on Sunday, but he will have to play his absolute best to take down Djokovic. He can do it though.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

Re: In a couple of days, Nadal will have the career slam!

I love Nadal too, he is my favourite player, but lets just wait and see if he actually gets to the final first, and then if he does, if he actually wins the final.

I'd love to see Nadal complete the Golden Slam on Sunday or Monday, but still a few days to go, but I can so understand your excitement.

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

Yeah, you're right. But Rafa, in his speech (in English, please), must not forget to mention Lopez and Verdasco without whom his sailing towards the semifinals would not have been so smooth. With 9 titles tucked under his belt, Nadal can now embark on achieving another feat - surpass Fed's collection of 16 GS in two years' time.

I wouldn't say Fed can be considered favourite against Nadal in a best of five match anymore regardless of the surface,not saying he's without his chances if he meets Nadal in the final,he's a 5 time champ afterall but he'll need to serve out of his skin and show up mentally(which he rarely does against Nadal).

I'd give Novak a pretty good chance to beat Nadal in the final given that he's a very tough match-up for Nadal on HCs if only his serve wasn't crap lately,it isn't even a weapon anymore,he mostly just rolls it in these days to start a point,very rarely gets any free points with it.
