No, he wouldn't have recovered frome the semi, and this i'm sure. Would have lost in 4 probably.

Murray won that match with aggressive backhands, forehands and finishing points off. If Rafito was that tired why was he so defensive? Behave Rafatroll, you and Topspinclown should move in together and start a bromance.

I'm no Bandwagon for either Fedtards for Rafatards, cauz they're all annoying and biased just the same, just like you Muzatards. I'm sharing my opinion as honestly as possible for fucks sake, you guys don't seem to get it.

I'm not a tard.

Regarding Murray, I made excuses for only one GS defeat in his whole career.

Re: Would Murray have defeated Nadal in AO12?

Nadal leads Murray 6-2 in slam matches.

1-1 at AO.
1-0 at RG.
3-0 at Wimbledon.
1-1 at USO.

This is what the numbers say. Excuses, injury, fatigue, any other bullshit excuse? Does not matter.

Correct and all victories by either player were completely fair and legit.

Totally pointless. He would have forced Nadal to 5 in my opinion but would have lost it.

Exactly this.

Nadal would have ground anyone else down after a semi like that. Only person who could have stayed with Nadal after that kind of a match is Djokovic. Nadal has a matchup disadvantage and now even a fitness disadvantage against a Djokovic on one leg. Poor Rafito, nowhere to go

Rafa still the fitter player imo.

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.

lolwut?
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

I think Nadal is just better on grass and clay. On HCs it's much closer.

Re: Would Murray have defeated Nadal in AO12?

Not sure about this but from the way Murray carries himself now and the match he played against Djokovic he may have beat Nadal.

I'll be checking out his upcoming matches, Lendl has made a difference already.
I just hope it's not just the initial boost that a player gets from having a new coach.

Murray is definitely one to watch this season.

Del Potro
