He should have a Sampras-like flat backhand then.
Should serve & volley too. :

Re: When will Nadal lose to a player born in the 90s, and who will it be?

Bump..Sounds like Nadal will be owning 1990s generation all together..It is really pathetic that some are pinning their hopes on players who are now approaching their 24 and 25 birthday, and yet they have yet to notch a solitary win over world #1 even in a meaningless tournment, let alone defeat him in Slam Final..Granted Nadal will likely lose a couple or more matches before he retires against these folks, but by then it does not mean that the early 1990s generation is breaking through-- it is more about Nadal's decline..

Looks like most of the people are saying "he can't play on grass" based only on this year.

Not even close to Guga btw.
Tsonga won in four sets.

According to some people Djokovic almost beat Nadal last USO, so I guess it's the same thing, no?

Nadal is a teacher and his pupils are taking lessons. Maybe some of them will defeat him sometime, but it looks like it wont be this year.

Dmitrov can do it in 2014, if not, Paire will do it in 2015.

Re: When will Nadal lose to a player born in the 90s, and who will it be?

Bump...Another one bites the dust, one more time...Nadal owning the young and old generations and those in between :

Nadal - Raonic: 5-0
Nadal - Dimitrov: 4-0
Nadal - Nishikori: 6-0
Nadal - Tomic: 2-0
Nadal - Janowicz: 2-0
Nadal - R.Harrison: 2-0


In fact, from the generation born after 1988, only Delpotro has more than a single win against him (H2H 8-4 in favor of Nadal)--Cilic and Dolgopolov are probably the only players from that group age who have one win against Nadal..


Meanwhile, low-ranked Davydenko, egged on by Fedtards, continue to from Rafa's draw sections to prevent this epic ownage of the tour

Dimitrov was 20 at 2011 Wimbledon and he didn't almost beat Tsonga.

But, but, these players are several years younger than Nadal. They should have a positive H2H with him just like Nadal with Federer, right? I'm confused, or could it be that age isn't a big factor in the H2H debate?
