PHM - Kangaroo Nadal just another guy. He can crumble.

"He was right before me shouting out encouragements to himself, doing little sprints and kangaroo jumps. It was borderline aggressive, but that kind of thing just makes me laugh. He's just another guy and he can crumble like anyone else."
Nadal's next opponent Paul-Henri Mathieu on the locker-room exchange before their last meeting in Montreal.

Good luck today PHM. Hope the Aussie crowd have your back Allez!!

I'm glad he's positive, but if either of them is to crumble, I don't think it would be Nadal...

Re: PHM - Kangaroo Nadal just another guy. He can crumble.

Good luck Paulo, but it is more than likely that he will be doing the crumbling.

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Can you tell me how it feels to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above

Ironically, it's PHM who has a career who has its fair dose of crumbling.

Maybe that's why he felt he had to give his expert opinion on this.

Re: PHM - Kangaroo Nadal just another guy. He can crumble.

I've seen Rafa's pre match locker room antics. They're bordeline aggressive and a tad bit dangerous I might add. Paulo will not choke today (Please PHM!!!). He will either be beaten fairly and squarely or ride the french mexican wave to win in 4. I hope the crowd are really vocal and are not afraid to remind Rafa where he is at! Sorry folks I'm getting a little desperate for something, anything to derail the Nadal Express.

Probably not I don't mind Rafa winning. I just hope that Roger can win RG just once. That's all. Is it too much to ask ? Rafa could then go on to win everything and I wouldn't mind at all. Also I quite like PHM, so I'll be supporting him today.

Only 2 players can beat Nadal here; Blake possibly and Federer. The rest might as well not try.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

Well, I agree that he doesn't exactly looks like a shy wallflower before his matches but dangerous? Come on.

I'm glad that you're able to admit it.

The French crowd will probably be tough but I like James Blake's answer who also has to play against a popular French player:
"He'll get the crowd into it. I'll try to do my best to take the crowd out of it."
