Will Nadal win any more titles this year?

He hasn't won one since the French Open.

I think it's highly unlikely that he'll win one more before the end of the year.

What do you think?

Yes, he will defend Madrid if Roger pulls out.

Re: Will Nadal win any more titles this year?

Tell me something: is there any more tournaments on clay? If there are not, except from Madrid's blue clay variant, Nadal has no chance.

The thing is he may win every tournament. Each time he lost in the last half of the year it was after a good fight, and his opponent has to be really determined and accurate to defeat him. But it would be more difficult for Rafa as the players will be encouraged by Nadal's last losses

Re: Will Nadal win any more titles this year?

Last year Nadal really had a claim to being number 2 on a hardcourt (2 TMS, although Fed was absent in both...), what the hell has happened this year?

Either way, I can't see him winning anything now - maybe Madrid but he's gunna have to hope to avoid big hitters because he looks so short on confidence against them.

He might win Madrid, he won't have any problem with a hostile crowd there.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: Will Nadal win any more titles this year?

Nadal has nothing to defend after Madrid until Marseille right?

Because last year he sustained his foot injury while playing in Madrid and wasn't able to play again till Marseille?

Thanks.

Nadal will be playing the AO from mid-January until the end of January ~~so that leaves no room for any clay tournaments

Nadal may opt to play Brazil & Acapulco again [he skipped this year to try & improve on hardcourt~ winning Dubai]

Honestly I think Nadal dropped too many clay events this year .Last year Nadal played 9-clay court events & won 8 of them [only lost to Andreev at Valencia]........This year Rafa played only 4-clay events & of course he won all of them ......~~But it means he dropped his clay court calendar from 9-to->4 ~~doesn`t this surprise anyone ......I mean why cut back on your strong suit

Nadal`s confidence has taken a sever schlacking since losing early at Toronto & Cincinatti~> that spilled over to the USO Open & his loss in the QF...It seems things have gone from bad to worse

It this form slump continues then Rafa may no longer be the 2nd favorite by the time the AO rolls on in Jan 2007 ~~ instead a Safin, Blake, Gasquet, Roddick..etc. may take the role of 2nd fovorite ~~ even though Nadal will still clearly be ranked #2

because playing those small clay court tourneys even after wimbledon will just hurt him further in the long run...

I don't see him winning anymore titles this year. He's not playing so good right now.

Re: Will Nadal win any more titles this year?

I think the real question is will he win any more matches this year?

He's finished.
