Verdasco beat him last year. Anyone realistically has a shot - that's why nothing is decided on paper.

Rafa was up a double break in that match. He had no excuse for losing.

I think Rafa's recent success on his least favoured surface means he will be unbeatable on his favourite surface this year. Nole has but a tiny chance to beat Nadal on clay this season. Maybe next year.

That's just a prediction. Rafa did great on HC in 2009 winning the AO and IW then lost twice on clay.

It was a thank you to Fiasco for all those times he dropped the soap for him.

That was his first tournament since his return. Rustdal is no more. Three straight tournament wins since then, including a hardcourt masters. He'll dominate European clay just like he did last year.
