Will Nadal win a non-clay GS again?

Between his personal problems and the tour players being progressively less scared of nadal, I think this might be a tricky question to answer. Even RG, his favourite GS, could be at doubt.

What do you think?

Uncle Abraxas with an over discussed thread again. Sounds boring.

The threads you create are a whole lot better right?

Eitehr way, I think Rafa can take one at Australia. US Open might be a bit of a stretch while Wimbledon will always be a good one for him in general, but really, this type of question will be best answered after the US Open so we can see if there is a pattern happening or if this is just one of those low periods like he has had several times in the past.

I think for me the more interesting question is if Nadal will ever defend a non-clay title. I mean just from the top of my head, Indian Wells, Wimbledon and Canada are the only 3 non-clay events he has won more than once.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

He would have won the last 2 HC slams if he didn't face a guy named Djokovic in finals. Rafa certainly has a chance to add 1 or 2 HC slams if he aviods Nole in the HC slams.

Re: Will Nadal win a non-clay GS again?

Hard to say actually, I wrote him off on non-clay surfaces in 2009 and he won Wimbledon and US Open next year.
That being said, Nadal hasn't succeed on hard court basically since IW 2009 with a small interval for USO 2010.

Re: Will Nadal win a non-clay GS again?

A guy who prior to the last slam reached 6 consecutive GS finals . .

Yeah, he's done.

Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Wimbledon W (1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980)

3 Channel Slams; 4 Consecutive RG; 5 Consecutive SW19

GOAT

Many ppl said this after every slam he won in the last few years yet he keeps proving them wrong. Some ppl will never learn it seems. Writting players like Fed and Rafa off is foolish to say the least.

Bro I think you need to relearn how to count.. Just like your "4 channel slams" mistake, 5 consecutive GS finals isn't 6. FO > Wimbledon > USO > AO > FO, I see 5 there

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: Will Nadal win a non-clay GS again?

I think he has a very good shot at the AO. He can get treatment rest and prepare in the of season.
