Nadal had Djokovic at net and could of driven a bus into the space that was provided for the winner down the line to go 40-15 up. He was serving will a lot of pace at this point and would have gone 5-2 up, and then won.

Do you think the miss will taint Rafael Nadals career?

.Roger Federer.

lol no
he lost this match before start, so that certain point has nothing to do with his career.

big moment, but even if he won the point there is no certainty of winning the match, but yes it was a big miss on a big point

This is not the Miss of his career.

Federer is his Miss.

I'm not sure about the career issue, but that point will affect the relationship between his uncles Toni and Miguel for sure

No. Missing one shot does not define his career.

It was a daft shot to make at a crucial time but even then would have taken him to 40-15 so we really don't know what would have happened next and we never will. That one shot will not taint his career. What might slightly take the shine off him will be if he never finds the answer to Novak but we will know that when he retires.

Taint is the wrong word I think but it was certainly a massive and inexplicable miss that probably cost him the match.

"Taint" is the wrong word to use. And even with the right word: no.

I definitely think he would have won if he made that.
