Does it really matter what happens with Nadal at Madrid?

Honestly, Law 18 is used in full force here. No matter WHO HE PLAYS, he will have a "cupcake draw", and Tio Toni's magic wand will have also given Federer the gauntlet draw with Berdych, Gasquet, Safin, Fat Dave, and Blake in his half

If that doesnt work, be sure to look out for people to bitch about the surface speed or the ball density and weight, or the crowd's disrespectfulness or the elevation of the tournament

Facts are facts Jonathan. The surface is slow.

About the draw, if he's going to face another draw with Horna, Kendrick, Moodie, then what do you expect to be said?

Re: Does it really matter what happens with Nadal at Madrid?

lol "cupcake draw."

Someone's always going to talk shit about Nadal's victories, people will do likewise for Federer; fans of older players will say today's field is weaker, etc etc. I think it's safe to say the majority recognizes Nadal's accomplishments.

im saying that even if his draw is:

R64: Marat
R32: Tursunov
R16: Berdych
QF: Gasquet
SF: Blake
F: Federer

people will still bitch about it and say hes a clown and/or the other guys choked

If he faces that draw his tournament is over in the second round.

Man, even SARETTA defeated Safin this year. It's no big deal.

Re: Does it really matter what happens with Nadal at Madrid?

I don't care if he beat Marat or Gael Monfils, he's the World No. 2, he should be doing much better than a 2nd round exit at a Masters series event, especially at home; and probably should take some crap about it.

As for the strength of his Wimbledon draw, who cares? Do you remember Borg's draw in '76? Nobody remembers that, what matters is he won *all* the games he should have and made it to the final, and despite the speed, it's still grass.

This is a nice little draw I would love to see Nadal face except for Marat in R1.
Marat needs some easy draw. He has no time for Nadal!

Re: Does it really matter what happens with Nadal at Madrid?

you really nothing of tennis if you think madrid and montreal last year were tough draws. if he beats 2-3 of the opponents you suggest, i think he would deserve fantastic praise but lets wait for it to happen...it seems you are already trying to make excuses for a future nadal loss. have confidence in the guy.

Re: Does it really matter what happens with Nadal at Madrid?

It does seem as though every time Rafa has a good result people make excuses about his draw or that uncle toni is cheating.

Next, we're going to hear that he's somehow hypnotized his opponent and has them under his mind control.

Re: Does it really matter what happens with Nadal at Madrid?

If Nadal defends his title in Madrid he will be the greatest claycourt player ever and if he loses early he will be an overrated clown who will never do anything outside of clay. Overreaction is inevitable either way.
