It was one person, and he lives to troll Nadal threads. The rest of us were joking.

Nadal not playing well, but I'm not surprised. He usually plays badly in the earlier rounds of tourneys, that's why an upset is more likely to happen with Rafa than any of the other top players. I think he'll have difficulty beating Kohli in the next round, a guy he's always struggled with. That said.. if he steps up, he should be able to win that match too.

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Beijing is just a preparation for Shankhai. Expect him to tank before finals.

Rafa wasn't impressive at all which can be expected from him in the earlier rounds.Hopefully,he'll start improving in the coming rounds

I think Slade is a closet Nadal fan.

Keep going, Rafa.

Tungsten body, glowing mind.

When your haters must make a celebration of the times you lose your serve, you are doing something well

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Nadal: the last Balearic Slinger, the ultimate product of natural selection. Feel the weight of the centuries in the Topspin from Hell!

If he reaches the final, he becomes #1. Amazing that Nole is #1 with just 3 titles(one is a mm @ Dubai or is it two with monte carlo?) this year. What a weak era. Sampras would be proud.
