If Nadal comeback at his best level, who can stop him except Djokovic ?

I think Nadal will comeback at his best level this year, and I was wondering... can he win Australian Open, Wimbledon or US Open in 2013 or 2014 ? The problem is that only Djokovic can beat him when Nadal is in great shape (except on indoors). And I think it will be tough for Novak to reach the final every time.

So who can stop Nadal except Djokovic ? Will he win another Grand Slam on hardcourts or grass ?

The one good thing about Rafa being back is no more Mugray fluke slams.

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....

Considering that peak Murray is a better player than Djokovic I'm going to say Murray.

There's no such thing as a peak Murray. Only a slightly better than normal Murray.

Murray's hardcourt best beats Nadal's, unless Nadal's armed with his USO 2010 serve.

True.

Murray has not hit his true peak yet.

Re: If Nadal comeback at his best level, who can stop him except Djokovic ?

At the slams? Aside from Djokovic?

RG- Only a ballbasher on his career day and Nadal injured.

Wimbledon- He always has been vulnerable in the first week, but 2nd week, Federer at his best can do it, Murray if he can get over the mental hurdle can do it, but aside from that, I don't know if Tsonga/Berdych/Delpo/the rest can do it. The first week, he can be taken out, 2nd week, it will be tough.

USO- Murray of course, Federer will have to be beastly, or again a power player on his best day with endurance physical and mental.

AO- Fed has little chance, Murray can do it, Del Potro can do it, and a power player on career day.

Any other tournament, best of 3, anything can happen. We must also bear in mind the injury issue, which can come up any time.
