I've lost a little respect for Nadal with this quote, thinking about it. These guys, like Djokovic and Murray, have shown they aren't scared of him anymore, and his response is basically to hold his head down and whine and effectively let them take the fun away from the game for him. Shows a lot of immaturity, and it shows me he doesn't really have the will or determination seen from other players.
murray not afraid for nadal anymore? Because of that MM win in Tokyo? Murray still shits his pants when he sees Rafa in a slam.
Ofcourse other players are a lot more hungry than Rafa at the moment, they still have things to prove. You can only compare him with Federer, and I think Fed deserves credit for still being motivated, instead of taking anything away from Nadal. Nadal was the most determined player I've ever seen when he was younger, willing to adapt his game to also be successful off clay and winning everything. Talk about determination!
