Who will be first to end Nadal's clay streak in 2007

I am almost certain that Rafa's clay streak will end next year? But who will be the first to do it?

This is totally off-left field, but maybe Igor Andreev, since he was the last player to beat Rafa on clay.

With Andreev's current physical state, Naldo's suggestion has a better chance, sadly.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

For future reference...Jarrko is actually Jarkko.
Sorry, I'm just incredibly fussy, even if it did take me more than a week to learn his name.

My suggestion has a better chance than Naldo's.

He could be healthy again by next spring.

I think Federer will beat Nadal on clay next year, whether or not he's the first one to do it and thus break the streak.

It almost definitely won't be another Spaniard. And it has to be someone who attacks.

Re: Who will be first to end Nadal's clay streak in 2007

You need to be an attacking player to beat Nadal on clay, so that's why I'm going with Federer or Safin. Safin and Nadal have actually never played against each other, so that would be an interesting matchup.
