Re: Will Nadal ever return to world number 1 again?

Nadal will be the best player in the world through RG, and then Wimbledon, he will do very well. USO, he consistently makes between QF-F.

That's all he needs right there. He will be selective with the tournaments he enters and get deep in all of them. And yes, Nadal doesn't have to defend the points post-RG so that is less pressure for him during that part of the year, unlike Murray, Federer and Djokovic.

That's all he needs? Try to place the 11000 points he will most probably need to be #1 in 2013. Where does he get them? After doing that, you can see if you think this looks achievable.

NO.


Except if Muzza and Godovic decide to skip the year or retire. I really can't wait to see what Rafito still has to offer. The next claycourt season will be very, very interesting...

Re: Will Nadal ever return to world number 1 again?

I cannot help but see some kind of resemblance between the writing off of Federer in/post 2009, and the writing off of Nadal right now...

Do so at your own risk, folks.

Nadal will reach #1 in 2013. Book it. Another sweep of clay season (humiliating Noserers a couple of times in the process), along with Wimbledon an a couple of HC masters will be enough for #1. Murray will slip out of top 5 because he will lose in r1 to Bubka.

With Mandy and Novak especially above him it will not happen. He has to limit his schedule especially on hardcourts.

If feeder sees a possible match up with him on clay he'll take a dive faster than the Republican Party in America.

When playing. Shame one plays for only half the year.

Re: Will Nadal ever return to world number 1 again?

The question is whether Nadal will return to the ATP Tour at this point. Forget #1. The 'Spartan warrior's' knees are looking awfully fragile at this point.

You'd like that wouldn't you, Magician. Too bad for you Nadal will come back and spank your idol like it's 2008-09. I am gonna enjoy every tear Noserer sheds next year at the hands of the King of Spin.

Re: Will Nadal ever return to world number 1 again?

djokovic didn't need weak clowns in finals to win titles

djokovic didn't get dominated by a close rival either

frauderer's game was praised as beautiful and elegant

the real truth was that he was made to look good by mannequins holding racquets

As a hater of both Noserer and Nadull (and a supporter of no-one), I get to enjoy every loss both of these pathetic fucking mugs suffer.

Don't you envy me.
