Who is the best player mentally?

I always thought it was Rafa, and for a while I wasn't wrong. But with him wavering along with a lot of the top ten, it makes me wonder who's the strongest mentally now?

In the last 52 weeks I would say Del Potro.

Roddick. Federer, too, I think. I don't think it's that he's mentally weak, it's that he just doesn't seem to care as much.

i'd say the man that continues to win slams and make the finals seemingly with ease even when he seems to be bombing out in normal tournaments left and right

I think Rafa is still mentally tough.

It's just yesterday, Andy had a great day. I wish Andy would have more great days like that, and just go for it!

In Rafa's presser, he seemed pretty happy with the results overall,so... He basically said Andy just played great that there wasn't a lot he could do about it.

Why is everybody thinking Rafa is done? I remember him not doing very well early in the season, then having an amazing run winning RG, Wimby, and AO.

I could understand if Rafa was losing early... maybe being concerned. But he's making it to the semis.

I think it's pretty difficult to tell in a best of 3 set format. It's all but over pretty quickly. It's in 5 sets where mental toughness really comes into play.

We'll just have to wait and see how the clay season progresses.

Nole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why are you all saying Delpo?

Isn't Delpo injured?

I haven't really been keeping up with tennis as much.
