Last Grand slam Nadal lost where he clearly wasnt injured?

All Grand slams I can remember Nadal lost because he was injured or extremly fatigued:

2011 AO Nadal fights with one leg against Ferrer
2010 AO Nadal retires against Murray with injury
2009 UO Nadal clearly was destroyed by Del Potro because he was injured
2009 RG Nadal obviously lost to Soderling with an injury
2008 UO Nadal was extremly fatigued against Murray because of the olympics and the schedule
2008 AO I am not sure here is the injury excuse was used when Nadal was destroyed by Tsonga, do you remember what was the reaston Nadal lost this match?
2007 UO Nadal was supposed to once again be injured against Ferrer in R4
2007 Wimbledon Nadal was tired by the schedule and rains, unfair schedule gave Federer this victory (despite Djokovic retiring in the SF against Nadal after 1 hour)
2007 AO Gonzalez destroys an injured Nadal, remember this one really well
2006 UO Youzhny defeated an injured Nadal...

Here is the one I clearly remember Nadal losing without any injury excuses:

2006 Wimbledon Federer fairly defeats an unexperienced Nadal

In which matches Nadal was clearly injured?

I would say I could clearly see Nadal was injured:
2011 AO
2010 AO (only the 3rd set, Murray would destroy him anyway)
2009 RG

Maybe 2007 Australian open he was tired after 5 sets against Murray but Gonzalez would still destroy Nadal the way he was playing in that tournament.

Stunning coincidence that Nadal is always injured/tired when he loses.

Re: Last Grand slam Nadal lost where he clearly wasnt injured?

Getting injured is part of tennis. It doesn't excuse losses. If you can't stay healthy its a detriment to you as a player. Same if you're 'tired'.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

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

Re: Last Grand slam Nadal lost where he clearly wasnt injured?

Earlier losses = he was outplayed. I don't think he looked injured when Gonzo beat him. But he seems clearly injured during AO 2010, 2011. 2009 RG = not look injured.

He's always injured or fatigued when he loses. Whether grand slam or a MM tournament. We all know that he's unbeatable when he's healthy.

US Open 2008.
At the beginning:

Quote:
What's about your knees?
"I am fine," Nadal said. "I feel very well physically."
http://www.nj.com/sports/njsports/in...no_longer.html

Murray defeated Nadal
Quote:
"It's part of the game, no? He play better than me and he beat me. I had my chances. If you remember I had 3-1, love-30, no? So I had a big chance in that moment of the match.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/ten...it-Tennis.html

Australian Open 2008
Rafa is defeated by Tsonga

Quote:
"We have to accept today he played unbelievable," Nadal said. "Playing the ball very hard every time, serving unbelievable. In the backhand he didn't miss not one. Forehand, every time he does the forehand was a winner, so congratulate him. That's it."

I thought we have a collective agreement that healthy Nadull is unbeatable.

RAFAEL NADAL PARERA

Career HIGHLIGHTS

2007|David Nalbandian strikes lucky to win against Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-0
2008|Mikhail Youzhny escapes Rafael Nadal 6-1 6-0
2008|Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was pushed to the edge by Rafael Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2
2009|Juan Martin Del Potro survives Rafael Nadal 6-2 6-2 6-2


BEST RESULTS ARE YET TO COME....

Re: Last Grand slam Nadal lost where he clearly wasnt injured?

I remember one of the excuses of all Nadaltards for objecting that Roger was hampered by Mono was that he didn't retire.

Well well well, here we are: Nadal didn't retire either >>> ergo Nadal is healthy!

One thing is for shoo: Nad was by his own admission 100% healthy when he beat Cilic in straight sets (he said so in his presser after the match)
