It's not that hard to figure out.
Nadal holds a perfect 550-0 record when healthy and 0-118 when injured.

Re: Which of the following can be the biggest threat to Nadal at RG?

IF Mr. Nadal is not at his best (for whatever reason), and if Robin Soderling is healthy and match fit, he and Mr. Isner are the biggest threat.

Soderling is the only player to defeat Mr. Nadal at Roland Garros. Enough said.

Mr. Isner in 2011 became the only player who has ever taken Mr. Nadal to 5 sets, and Mr. Isner has since improved his play. If he can sustain that improvement and play similarly to his Davis Cup performances and serve well and keep the points short, he can win in less than 5 sets.

Mr. Del Potro has an outside chance.
Mr. Monfils with the match of his life and avoiding Mr. Federer.

Gael's game matches up well with Rafa on any surface. When he has played his best Gael has easily defeated Rafa. Roger is his kryptonite at RG .



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Gael never took more than 3 games in a set against Nadal on clay

And never took more than 5 games in a match against Nadal on clay

I know he had a similar score line in last year's SF loss that Gael had in his 2008 loss to Federer. Dont remind me but with the French crowd behind him maybe he can win a set LOL. You cant really count those matches because Gael has only played him once on clay since he has been Top 10-caliber which was in Madrid 2010 and Gael was coming of a long injury break.

Re: Which of the following can be the biggest threat to Nadal at RG?

The sample of one particular match is too small to draw conclusions about Isner's chances against Nadal.
Besides, Isner was never close to win this match.

Closer than Fed thats for sure. Also before you come up with your shot at Monfils just remember he is the only guy to beat Fed indoors in the last 14 months.

Are people still believing in Soderling?

Come on, the 6 straight sets he lost after that match vs. Nadal at RG surely must be a sign, no? It was a fluke, Soderling has less than 0% chance to do it again.

As far as I know Federer lost to some guy called Isner last Friday

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4
