I voted for Delpo since Robin won't be anywhere near his best even if he is playing.

When Nadal is healthy nobody can take him down at RG besides Nole, but Delpo or Soderling at good day can beat average Nadal there for sure

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

if you're a Nadaltard nobody can take down a healthy Rafa anywhere

Btw, why was this thread merged with the other one the first time it was created but it was allowed to remain when it was made a 2nd time?:P

I'm guessing Hass isn't in the poll so the other gimps have a chance?

This. And even then it has to be said that this is based on 2 clay tournaments last year, one of which (Madrid) has very bad conditions for Nadal anyway. So far even Novak has not managed to take more than one set off Nadal at RG. Only Soderling and Isner have taken 2 or more in a match.

Novak has the best shot by far but if it's Nadal at his best then no one has a chance at RG. There are Novak fans who seem to think Nole 2.0 could have beaten Nadal in 2008 at RG - no chance - that was the best player on clay ever playing at his very best - no one was getting 3 sets.

Outside the top 4 you have to think it's Del Po and no one else really. Ferrer is not as effective vs Nadal on clay - he could get a set but not 3. Isner potentially but think Nadal would have learnt from last year... Nadal needs to just make sure he stays in the top 2 till RG so he can't meet Novak before the final.

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

There was a time when Federer was unbeatable at Wimbledon. And guess what? In the next couple of years he lost to Nadal, Berdych and Tsonga.
Nadal is probably the greatest claycourter of all time but it doesn't mean he'll be winning RG forever, some day Rafa's going to lose to somebody not named Soderling.
And it can as well happen this year, why not?
Did somebody expect Federer to lose against Berdych after such a promising start of 2010?
