How badly will Nadal ruin the RG draw/seeding again?

Can't win anything on hard, and will probably be upset a couple of times on clay....but he's still going to be a force in best of 5 on clay.

He's going to absolutely ruin the section of whoever's section he lands in.

Even Murray trashes him on clay these days, get real. He won't ruin any draw.

Because I know where this is going: Djokovic facing Nadal in the QF had nothing to do with why he lost in the final.

Sure it did. The match was mentally and physically exhausting even if the score didn't suggest it. Then there was that physically and mentally exhausting Murray match that took *two days* to complete, not giving Nole any day to rest before the final.

He was physically and mentally spent: FACT

He won't be top 4, that's for sure.

Anyone with eyes saw that Nole was hampered and had nothing on his shots in that final.

The BOAT physically and mentally spent after 1 hour of play the day?

OK??

This has nothing to do with Djokovic. This has to do with the possibility of Nadal playing a lot of top players a lot earlier than expected on the worst possible surface for them.

Yes, there is a huge difference waking up knowing you'll just train and get ready for the final rather than waking up knowing you have a SF to complete.

Nole was clearly physically and mentally spent, only a blind person didn't see that. He was hampered physically and had nothing on his shots. He made it too easy for Wawrinka.

Re: How badly will Nadal ruin the RG draw/seeding again?

lol, Djokovic dominated Nadal, was dominating Murray until he relaxed a bit (maybe he wanted to practice a bit more before the final ), and simply got outplayed in the final by an on-fire Stanimal. It still could/should have gone to 5 sets and who knows what would have happened there, but Djokovic obviously has issues with 4th sets of RG finals, can't seem to get over the hump.
Give Wawrinka some credit, Djokovic was fine.

EDIT: as for the original question....I don't think Nadal will drop too much in the rankings before RG, but even if he does, his aura of invincibility at RG is long gone, and he's not really outlasting people in 5th sets anymore either
