Nadal: 2011 not best year for himself, Federer

Rafael Nadal disagrees with Andy Murray’s assessment that the standard at the top of the men's game has significantly increased this year.

"I do not agree," Nadal told reporters in Shanghai. "I think Djokovic, yes. I played worse than last year. I was very regular, probably even more regular than last year. I think Roger [Federer] played well, but he lost a few matches than in the past he never gonna lose."

The Spaniard added that he isn’t sure whether the Nadal of 2010 would beat the Nadal of 2011. "I believe Rafa 2010 had something more special than Rafa 2011, especially in tough situations. That's the true. Win or lose depends on very, very, very small things. And probably these very, very small things I did a little bit better in 2010 than 2011… Djokovic this year already won a lot of tournaments. Don't believe that he changed his game unbelievable. He did a few small things better than a few years ago and that's why his big success this year. That's what I gonna try. But I am not agree with what Andy said. I think the level, no, wasn't better than 2010 or 2009. I think was similar. For my part and Roger's part a little bit worse for the moment."

I can sense a lot of anger in Nadull's words. He is obviously still pissed at the lesson that Murray gave him last week.

There was me thinking that Nadull is the epitome of humility. Bitter much?

Rafa just telling how it indeed is, what's the deal?

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Nadal: 2011 not best year for himself, Federer

I have been watching tennis since the early 90's. 2011 standard has been one of the best. Nadul is getting worked out time and again.Thats his problem.

He was not as physically sharp this year as compared to last year. Faker was sharper.

It would be interesting to see 2010 Nadull play 2011 Faker.

If Nadull and Faker play at the 02 and piglet wins then that sets the tone for next year. WTF are huge.

Murray has a thing or two to say about that.

Re: Nadal: 2011 not best year for himself, Federer

Nadull is right that this year has a horrible level, but he's wrong that 2010 was better when in fact both Nadull and Fakervic have taken advantage of the weak era to win 3 slams in a year without a challenge or an especially high level of play. That's why this statement is sour grapes and bitterness from Nadull, he benefited from the same gifts Fakervic has had this year and he doesn't like the reflection he's seeing from the other side

How about not making a new post every time a random thought pops into your head?
Also, the "Faker" and "Nadull" bullshit is old, bigtime. These are the two best tennis players in the world. You dont like them, we get it. Nobody cares.
