Nadal has best 2005 TMS record, 23-1 so far...

Did not play Indian Wells
Finalist Miami
Winner Monte Carlo
Winner Roma
Did not play Hamburg
Winner Montreal

Does the amazing feat of appearing in the finals of every Masters Series contested so far this year give him a shot of beating Agassi's record for MS shields (currently 17) in the future?

Also, since commentators regularly state it is harder it is to win a MS than a GS since MS are usually 6 matches over a week vs 7 over two weeks (yes, I realize in the slams they play more sets) does this suggest Nadal will be winning more slams soon?

How apt that Nike's new ad in Spain is "Tennis has changed; get used to it" featuring Nadal.

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

Agassi will not be the obstacle to overcome in the near future. I expect fed to overcome agassi in the #. Fed already has 7 and i expect him to surpass andre. Nadal has 2 and will be climbing fast.

Watch this turn into a "who will win more tms, Rafa or Roger"....

How can one year really be indicitive of how one's career will end up? Like when some commentators say Roger's the greatest of all time...don't you have to wait until his career is over to say that? What if he gets hurt and has to quit playing? What if his game starts to go south and he's not winning anymore? I think they've all got a long way to go to surpass Agassi's 17 (hopefully 18) tms titles.

I dont see what the problem with this discussion is, nadal has shown he has the capability to provide a rivalry with federer. It should be a great topic for tennis fans.

They are talking about his game and not his achievements.One could make an argument for his game.

All these discussions assume that people are healthy obviously. The fact we don't know what the future brings is why these discussions are interesting. But we can make educated speculations.

Amazing stat. I didn't even notice that.

Hopefully next year he'll play all of them.

I can`t wait for 2006 when Nadal has to defend all these points - and bye bye!

Defending points isn't a handicap. He doesn't have to defend every single title he has won because he can do better in other tournaments, especially those he didn't play in. Also all the other top 5 players have a lot to defend at some point in the year.
If he got the points this year he is good enough to keep them if he plays the same way. Also chances are he will be a solid Number 2 in the world by december, not very far from Federer but far in front of the Number 3.

The point is: Nadal has had an amazing start to his career. It's a start only, but it is still impressive.

Sure he could have a career ending injury. He could be hit by a car, etc. Even it that happens, it doesn't mean he hasn't had a great start to his career. It doesn't mean he's not a great player.

Although it is kind of fun to see the Rogi fans getting all wierded out by Nadal.
