Nadal looked like circa June 06' this week

I thought we had seen the best of this guy and that he was there for the taking.

Clearly, listening to Roddick this week, so had a few others.

But he was back wasn't he?

No-one really got near him this week.

I think even Roger might have struggled against him this week.

Good to see him back.

What did Roddick say that I didn't hear?

Of course, Rafa's good, no but let us see if he can keep this form and surprise himself with more consistent victories on hard court.

He basically said that guys had been thinking that he could be attacked, but that against him in Indian Wells, there wasn't much he could do.

Vamos!
Our invincible Spaniard!
Always resilient. Even when down by 2 and a half sets! He comes back, no?
That's what makes Rafkullz story so exciting to watch.

He certainly has an amazing attitude.

He said yesterday that he has never thrown a racquet in his life - that his uncle would throw him off the court if he did.

He's unbelievable really.

He has oodles of Charisma. Even his ass-pickin has some charm to the process. Va-mos! It takes special COURAGE to do that in front of 10 million viewers. Plus his good habits are to die for... like he doesn't dig his nose in public, no? Lurve Him!

Re: Nadal looked like circa June 06' this week

Its great.

Rafa is peaking so the boring Fed's reign of terror is ending.

SPARTAN tennis > ballet tennis

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

RIP TENNIS JUNE 7, 2009


Do what must be done.
Do not hesitate.
Show no mercy.
