Where exactly does Almagro fit into a top 5?

Re: Who is the early favorite for Roland Garros 2013?

What about Tomic? I think he is better than Rafito on clay. well, at least he is driving better cars

OK, seriously, getting tired of Nole, Rafa, Fed, Muzza ... wish some young punks would show up and win a major. remember that guy named Chang def. a mighty Lendl, oh that was good

anyway, Acapulco >>>>>>>>>>>>> RG.

Re: Who is the early favorite for Roland Garros 2013?

Of course, Djoko King and Rafito are favourites. I'd put Djoko King slightly ahead in the race of Nadal at the moment, but come Monte Carlo my opinion may change.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

One performance at RG >>>>>> The rest of his non-existent clay career

Wrong again? again? I believe I've been right A LOT lately with Nadal, Dubai and everything. Doubt many can say that

Erm? I'm pretty sure you'd agree djoker is the slight favourite right now mate. Beating vulture isn't a true test for Nadal.

Hell no.

Nadal's clay game is infinitely superior to Novak's.

Yes again. Every word that comes out of your mouth borders on the deranged.

Guarantee you'll find very few people who believe that Almagro is more of a threat on clay than Berdych.

Do you consider Verkerk a greater clay courter than Coria? He did beat him after all, has a bigger game and could threaten anyone. Both reached the final. Coria has those meaningless titles, but what do they say about being a top claycourter?

Re: Who is the early favorite for Roland Garros 2013?

I don't look at the results, I look at how Nadal's playing and the progress he's making. A much better indicator and that's what I base my predictions on.
