Nadal is too good to lose before quarters everytime, but the fact that Raonic, Monfils and Dimitrov lost to him and the way it happened says more about them than about Rafa (Raonic had flu, leg issue, and sucks in big matches, Monfils doesn't believe he can beat Big-3 and clowns every fucking time; Dimitrov is not good and clutch enough for a Slam final, at least for now). As for Zverev match, Nadal wasn't playing better than against Verdasco, Fognini or Pouille, and all these three matches he failed to close out when he was ahead (hell, we can add this year final as well), i see no reason to think he would have fared better if Alex had not cramped.
Are you kidding me?
1) Monfils played the match of his life against a big 3 player, took the 3rd set with ease and was up a break in the 4th before GOATdal showed up to stop him.
2) BOTnic was perfectly fine. In his previous match interview he said he was feeling "fantastic" when asked about his health so he was also 100%. Even his hardcore fan
didn't make any excuse after the match...
3) Divatrov - Arguably the best match ever he has played at any slams and gave RAFA a run for his money. He was up 4-3* 40-0 on RAFA's serve but GOATdal saved them with bravery and clutchness by attacking the net and CC forehands.
