Rafa still the fitter player
I don't know how long Rafa haters/dislikers will rely on Nole to beat him in slams.
Nole needs back up to hlep him beat Nadal in the slams (Maybe Delpo?
). He is not a mechine after all unlike Nadal.
The good thing for Rafa is that there are more players who can upset Nole than players who can upset him in slams. Fed & Andy have bigger chances to win against Nole in all 4 slams.
Nadal of 2009 and before - SURE. The guy was a beast, he would have ground Djokovic v.2011 down too. Nadal of 2008 and early 2009 especially was at a level physically that will be hard to surpass for anyone.
However, the years are starting to catch up on Rafa now, he is visibly less fitter. Anyone who has watched tennis at least since 2006 can attest for that.
As for Rafa "dislikers" (thanks for making that diffferentiation
) relying on Djokovic to stop him, dont worry pal. It is fun while it lasts
