Re: Nadal's top priority
This is the one missing form his collection to be sure.
As I recall, he made the finals in a year when he wasn't playing nearly as well as he is now, 2015, against what was probably a stronger field (Murray, Waw, was Fed there? not sure) and lost to Djok. This what in a period when he always lost to Djok.
I think he has great chances this year. Not at all sure Fed is going to strong for remainder of season, he seemed really played out USO--my suspicion about Fed is that at th is points he needs long rests, time -off, to recover, cannot play well continuously.
Nadal, sand bag? If I understand your usage here, Absolutely not! Not in his repertoire.
But WTF is the one I want for him. It would complete his trophy case, and give him whatever points he might need at that point to guarantee YE #1.
The most important tourn remaining by far this year.
