I wouldn't consider him a top5 hardcourt player but I guess Nadulltardism sees it differently.
how would you not consider him a top 5 hard court player when the only other player who can beat him when he's on is Djokovic....? bizarre logic. besides some fluke matches in which Nadal was MIA, Djokovic is the only one who stood in his way of winning most of the hard court titles in 2011!!
your logic is ill willed and clearly biased because it holds no ground
a 'not even top 5 hard court player' has been in the top 1 or 2 spots for two or three years now based on him earning the most points accumulated on hard courts and by having some of the most success.
you just make no sense. how many hard court finals did he reach in 2011?
did he win a hard court grand slam in 2010? what other players besides Djokovic/Federer have won hard court Grand Slams recently?
it is tiring hearing haters like you state foolish things, that you would not consider Rafael Nadal a top 5 hard court player. how bitter are you of his success child
