Interviewer: Who is your favorite professional women's tennis player?
Rafa: My favorite .. right now is Federer, no? Because he is a perfect tennis player.
Interviewer: Is... Roger Federer?
Interviewer: Uh huh, what about in the women's side?
Rafa: Well I'm not, um, watching a lot of women... women tennis.
What a silly thread! The expectations on him are ridiculous. Calm down everybody.
It is easy for people to forget that he is still only a teenager. It is obvious that he is the most special tennis talent we have seen in quite a few decades; however, you never know what will happen with injuries in the future.
Although he has looked in fine form lately, he may not even win his first slam this year; we could be waiting until 2013—or later! The top players would have watched tonight's match ominously, and if he is seeded for the AO pencil him in for a deep run. For Wimbledon, he will obviously be one the favourites.
A safe guess would be 8-20 slams, depending on how quickly his clay game matures. Djokovic is the only current player that has proven he can match it with an in-form and serious ND.
He will beat Fed to win his first grand slam at Wimbledon.
First time I have seen him play, I said: this guy will be big.
He was just 16 and he played so easily, like tennis is so simple. And he won that match. That was in a GS an opponent was aruond 70th spot.
