This is his 11th season on the tour excluding 2001 and 2002. He is physically not the same force he was five years back or even three years back. Mentally, yes he still is.
dude, really stop embarrassing yourself. I knew you were gonna come up with this 'millage' thingy. Rafa is 'still' in his prime, his age and his victories confirm this. I guess Rafa wasn't in his prime in 2009 either when he took some 'sick time' after he lost to Soderling at RG. Rafa also wasn't in his prime when he lost to Rosol last year at SW19 and conveniently took more 'sick time'. Rafa isn't in his prime only when he is losing. Nadal is somehow always 'injured' when losing ... same old story. sorry bud, I don't buy it at all.
