Who can challenge King Rafa in the next 3 years?

nadal has grown into an unbeatable force in slams.......who will be that player who will take him to 5 sets at the french open? who can step it up against him on grass? there is some hope for others on hardcourts but that seems to be disappearing fast with his improving hardcourt game day by day.......

once the us open concludes, this is the question which will occur to everyone.......vote and discuss.......

Re: Who can challenge King Rafa in the next 3 years?

Hmm, lets see.. Federer, Djokovic, Delpo, Murray, Gulbis, Berdych etc.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

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

Re: Who can challenge King Rafa in the next 3 years?

Now I see why Rafa is so humble. He's got a fan so egotistical he probably thinks he's Rafa himself.

If he's 'unbeatable' then wtf is the point of making a thread about who can beat him...

fed could not even challenge in his peak, what can he do now? murray is too passive to pose any threat......gulbis and berdych don't even belong in the discussion.......the level of domination is getting close to unreal.......these berdychs and soderlings were thought to be his threats, look what he did to them this year......djokovic and juan martin might be the ones but i am still not sure about them either.......

like you said, we will have to wait and see if there's any answer to nadal.......

I don't know how you can call anyone else 'King' until The King retires.

Re: Who can challenge King Rafa in the next 3 years?

Don't know about challenging him on a regular basis (Del Potro has the game), but a hard hitter on a good day can beat Nadal. Someone like Soderling in RG 08.

He was already in the final 2010 edition but the brigade of Nadaltard double accounts made sure Federer's_mate won that time.
