Will Nadal win another event off of clay?

I create this thread on the back of the thread about whether NAdal can still win a slam other than RG. It made me think whether he can win another event off of clay, let alone a slam. He hasn't won a event off of clay since Tokyo 2010 folks. That's almost 2 years ago. Can he still do it, or is he limited to win on clay only these days?

Re: Can Nadal win another event off of clay?

Tokyo 2010 is actually less than 2 years ago.

Of course he can. He wasn't far off winning 3 slams in a row off-clay at W11, USO 11, AO 12; if Djokovic hadn't been Djokovic 2.0, he probably would have done.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Re: Can Nadal win another event off of clay?

He will. Way too good not to. If he doesn't win even 1 until this time next year I'll be shocked. Maybe one event out of Tokyo, AO, IW, Miami, and might have a tiny chance at WTF if he can avoid Federer. One of those, or two optimistically.
Hope not though

And it's 3 years of course...

Oh, and when he does, get ready for MTF to blame you for anti-jinxing the most hated player

USO is a lock as I've said, general.

Affirmative General Looner. Nadal will crank up his serve by 20mph out of nowhere and set a new record in ace count on his way to his 2nd USO title.

I wish I could answer YES. But I'm doubtful.

Re: Can Nadal win another event off of clay?

sweet jesus, what a stupid question. lets have some more

Will Murray win another title?

Win Federer win another Grand Slam Match?

Will Djokovic have sex with a monkey?

Will Piggy get roased at the YEC?

The answer in all cases is "probably yes", as is this.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Maybe something like a 500 or a 250.

Re: Can Nadal win another event off of clay?

Now with that out of the way, lets get back on topic. Lets not forget that Nadal have never defended a title off of clay. Now he hasn't won a title off of clay for almost 2 years. He is even starting to struggle on grass these days. I have no idea why Nadaltards are attacking me for making this thread. It's a perfectly legitimate question.

Does Nadal play any 250 events on hard? Even those titles are hard to come by for him these days. Take Doha for instance. You have the likes of Fed and Tsonga playing there. Even Rosol may show up in these events and challenge Nadal. These are tough guys for Nadal to beat on hard. Of course Nadal can win on hard again, but it's not a lock by any means.
