Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rafael Nadal has just started a career that will be like noone's. Most people want to lock him inside the clay world but he will cross the surface barrier. We are witnessing the beginning of an amazing CHAMPION.

More surprises coming soon on GRASS and HARD SURFACES soon.

You sound too much like Brad Gilbert.
But I agree that he will win plenty of matches outside clay.
But as for "a career that will be like no one's", if you are implying at least 15 slams in total with all 4 slams, I don't see that happening.

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)

Re: Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree that there is a little bit too much hyperbole in the original post. Don't think that he will have the best career ever.

But do think that he will win matches and tournies and even GS (no idea on the number yet as his game is still developing) outside of clay. He has the determination and ability to improve to where I really think he could win a US Open or Aus Open at some point in his career [note:not saying this year- just saying at some time]. I'm not sure if that he will ever be able to win Wimbledon (certainly not at his current level) but if he does ever up his game in the departments needed to I would love for him to win and to end the kinda common condescending attitudue towards players who have clay as their strong suit.

Re: Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most people don't consider Nadal a contender outside the clay courts but I think this guy's learning skills are superior and he will adjust to anything. Great tennis ahead.

Re: Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nadals career might well show an inverted Roland Garros syndrome, which has kept the likes of Lendl and Sampras from winning a career slam.
I don't know about Rafas grass prowess, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him win the Aussie and US Open as well, yet failing to get a Wimby crown.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm... He has yet to win a slam. I'm 99% sure that he will win tomorrow, but it seems that some Nadal's fan have forgotten that he has a final to play.

Re: Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes!! Nadal and Federer will dominate men's tennis, like the Williams sisters have been dominating women's tennis, for many many years!

Re: Nadal has just BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

here's the thing about grass...his serve will get destroyed, his heavy topspin counter completely by the surface, and his movement impeded. grass takes away every single weapon he has and exposes his weaknesses. there's not way he's gonna even be a threat on grass. slow hardcourts maybe, but not on grass, fast hardcourts, and carpet

Well... that's not quite my wish. The Williams dominated for let's say... a couple of years ?? I am hoping for a much longer dominance in this case.

RAFEL NADAL fot canya, NO ?
