Re: is fed ever gonna be put to sleep on grass??

How can you not include Hewitt if you put in Ljubicic and... Henman!!! But out of those, I just have to go with either Nalby (because he has confidence and has beaten him) or Nadal (because there's no reason to believe he can't improve on grass and he also has confidence) because the rest don't have a chance, that's almost a fact.

Oh yeah, you have to include Marat too, if he ever sees a psychiatrist. Australia has some good ones.

Re: is fed ever gonna be put to sleep on grass??

No, I think it's ignorant to think Nadal can't do it. I don't see how people can just say that he can't ever do it. This year, ofcourse not (imo). But before that 5-setter at Nasdaq two years ago, everyone was completely laughing at the possibility of him beating Fed on hard, and he's done it twice in a row now. Why not grass? His serve is clearly better already. Give him 2 years.

What if he beats Hewitt in a few days? Hewitt is no Federer, but he's still good on grass. Ofcourse that's a "what if". but if he beats Hewitt, people seriously need to acknowledge that in the future, he may beat Roger on grass, beacuse Hewitt is a former well-deserved Wilmbeldon champion.

What are you talking about? He took a set off of Federer at the U.S. Open last time they played, last August? And no bagels in that one. But still, you have to put him if you put Henman!!!

Nadal won't beat Federer on grass this season...and probably not in the next few years either. There is a high possibility they might never meet on grass anyway

No, not yet. Not this year or next. But it will happen. Nadal was in the third round as a 17 yr old.

He's an animal and very adaptable
