Doesn't anyone else miss Rafael Nadal at this AO?

I do, and I never thought I'd say that. I don't dislike Nadal, but wouldn't call myself a fan.

Still, I miss his fist-pumping, Vamos-screeching, Popeye-muscled presence.

Am I alone?

Ok.

I miss him. He's interesting. And I wanted to see how he would do on this surface. It def. added some excitement to the Open.

It's a shame he's not here but, on the positive side, Andy got the no.2 seeding so I'm not too disappointed.

Re: Doesn't anyone else miss Rafael Nadal at this AO?

Yup, I would have loved to see a 5 set thriller with Nadal vs. Federer in the finals.

Oh well gotta wait till the French.

Vamos!

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

I hope I never have to witness his face on tv again.
I love you, Aussie Open.

Re: Doesn't anyone else miss Rafael Nadal at this AO?

I miss him a lot, like other players
He really should be here, I hope he will be part of many Australian Opens to come in future
His incredible action on court is really missing!

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
