Now I am convinced beyond doubt Rafa will win RG 2006

Because he plays Hewitt. If you discount the 2006 Australian Open, in every single grand slam Hewitt has played in since and including the 2004 AO, the man who beat him went on to win the title.

While there are players in the draw there is hope.

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

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

That's right. Another ominous sign.
Kiefer is already out of the tournament which means Fed doesn't get to beat him in four sets.

No Kiefer-four-setter, no slam for Fed.

(Unless Fed gets to play Hewitt in the final. )

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)
SAFIN 2 and Out (T.T)

Thumbs up Re: Now I am convinced beyond doubt Rafa will win RG 2006

Of course I want Hewitt to beat him,but on this surface and his form it's not easy to challenge Nadal.Let's see what happen,today even the "hopeless" Paulo just was fighting so hard,I expect the better mental state Hewitt can show more.Also Nadal is exhausted, (The guy choked on banana this time,what will he do next? ) Allez Hewitt!

Stan The Paris Man

Cheer for: Wawrinka Murray Ljubicic Gonzalez Mahut Nishikori Soderling Tipsarevic Mathieu Monfils Muller Tsonga Berdych Acasuso O.Rochus Kiefer...

Re: Now I am convinced beyond doubt Rafa will win RG 2006

the only problem i found is that Hewitt beat Nadal in AO 2005, last time the played...He witt is 3-0 over Nadal...maybe because they have similar defensive game?

5 7 6 3 6 1 6 7 2 6

could him beat Nadal on clay?

Well, it's like saying: I am convinced that Hewitt will win, because everytime he had to face Nadal in a tournament, he beat him So you have both jinxes

The record was made before Rafa reaches his top form. Until Brasil Open 2005, it wasn't that difficult to beat him.

Interesting. But if Hewitt beats Nadal, we will have to wait and see who then beats Hewitt
