Nadal seems the expert in playing badly and winning matches.

berdych is probably going to gun down soderling.

nadal is not going to lose here this year. he is playing poorly but you still cannot find a way around him.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

exactly. other that the 2008 campaign here when he destroyed them all, he seems to make monster productions out of his matches.


its because he leaves so much on the table. the serve is not strong enough and he doesnt return all that well. his return game fell off in 2009. it is taking some time to find it again.

he is not partucularly a threat at the net in a way Fed is.

Of course if all these players forget they are playing Nadal and play the ball they would win.

No chance for Rafa to win RG.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling
