I am a member here, on MTF, for some time, almost 6 years...
I remember people saying even in '06-'07 that, by the age of 26 Rafa will be a physically finished player. Hewitt and/or Borg comparisons all over the place...
Here we are, a couple of days before Rafa's 26th birthday, and the Bull is stronger than ever, eager to win more than ever and with his 7th RG almost a lock.
People are saying Roger is a young 30 years old, but in my opinion Rafa will be also one, 4 and a half or 5 years from now, against all the odds.
Only if by then he would have won everything in sight and surpassed all the records (which is not at all a far-fetched scenario) I see him losing some of his concentration and will to win. And even in this scenario I am not so sure about that.
The guy is the ultimate will-to-win-and-concentration tennis-machine. I am not even sure if he is human
What do you think? Will Rafa be a young 30 years old 4 years from now or not? Will he win majors in his 30s?
